Next up on the Electronical Reeds label is Pole Folder, one of the foremost artists in his native Belgium, in association with Simon Latham. They serve up two fantastic tracks that come backed with four equally excellent remixes!
Pole Folder – a tremendous DJ and live performer – runs his own Reworck label, has also released on Global Underground and Bedrock and regularly gets support from the likes of Hernan Cattaneo, Sasha, Laurent Garnier and Daniel Bortz for his great releases. Simon Latham meanwhile, is a Icelandic dance veteran whose tracks have been used on tons of compilations on Renaissance, and who has released on labels like Silent Shore Records, Armada, Proton, Olaris, Stress and others.
The first original called The Bitter Memory, is an enigmatic track with a really heart tugging male vocal floating in wide-open spaces. Rubbery drums play and drive the thing along and main room, sweeping melodies come in to sweep you off your feet. The second track, U.S.E. was previously released last autumn on the Y3ARS album. It is a spine tingling bit of magical house with great melodies and tons of atmosphere, as well as a super evocative and neo soul male vocal line that really takes flight. U.S.E. gets plenty of remix treatment.
First to appear is Kompakt’s Icelandic Superstar GusGus alongside T-World for a squelchy tech house reinterpretation that is elegant and uplifting. Next up is Brussels man and label artist, Lex Newton that gets all slick and lively on his classy house re-rub. Another Electronical Reeds artist, Superdrums, comes with his vision of U.S.E. and makes it into a cosmic bit of house funk. Finally, Simon Latham also turns in a solo remix that is even more moody and melodic.
Dancefloor driven cuts and melodic grooves is clearly the right definition for Electronical Reeds’ style and the present release backs it up. A solid package clearly stating a defined but open-minded artistic direction that appeals to a larger audience than most releases one gets to hear these days.
