SHÆLIN – ‘Ain’t No Matter (DJ Phantom Remix)’
DJ Phantom’s respectful edit of ‘Ain’t No Matter’ puts the group’s vocal performance front and centre, championing their soulful harmonies and pensive lyricism. Opting to enhance the original’s use of traditional instrumentation, Phantom employs a recurring piano riff and string injections to bring a new perspective to the melody. A master of his craft and with the 90s hip-hop sound intrinsic to his repertoire, the turntablist nods to his roots with subtle, well-positioned scratches. Fostering the technique in a way that revolutionised the art form, the added texture goes far beyond that of a rhythmic or melodic accompaniment; honouring the vinyl as its own instrument. Although the craft has almost entirely disappeared from today’s hip-hop landscape, DJ Phantom proves that these foundational methods are not only still relevant, but essential in crediting the genre’s bedrock. Alongside SHÆLIN’S silky smooth choral moments and solo rap performances, the scratch presents as a sound that is, paradoxically, both nostalgic and yet progressive in this contemporary setting.
Bar.ba x Odagled – ‘Festival’
Fast-rising Italian DJ and producer Bar.ba teams up with Odagled and lands at Renaissance with ‘Festival’. After laying down an initial sketch at his studio in Spain, Odageld sent the track over to Bar.ba in Bergamo to sprinkle it with his production magic. The result is a record with rare qualities – infectious without being obvious and wholly unique in its refusal to conform to a specific genre.
Holo – ‘In Limbo’
“My favourite band is Radiohead, and this EP takes its name from a song of theirs. I admire them not just because their music is amazing, but also because of how they’ve constantly evolved; it’s not an easy thing to do. I tried to follow their example with this EP [‘In Limbo’], pushing myself towards something unfamiliar, experimenting with new styles, and trying to create something cohesive, different, but that still sounded like me.”— Holo
Luno – ‘Planet Luno’
Luno returns with a sophomore sonic offering for 2022, the highly-anticipated 4-track ‘Planet Luno’ EP.
