Shaun J. Wright & Alinka - Twirl Exclusives Vol.1
Late October will see Shaun J. Wright & Aliinka’s Twirl imprint offer up an exclusive remix package in the shape of ‘Twirl Exclusives Vol.1’, featuring mixes from the likes of Luke Solomon, Joshua Iz, Eli Escobar and more.
Shaun J. Wright & Alinka launched the Twirl imprint back in October 2014 as a platform for releasing their own collaborative productions and have since received support from the likes of BBC Radio 1’s Annie Mac and Heidi, Kenny Glasgow, Ralph Lawson, Gorgon City and KiNK.
Berlin-based Venezuelan artist and Aerea Negrot collaborator Fata Kiefer kicks off the package with his smooth and understated take on ‘Journey Into The Deep’, leading brilliantly into Classic’s Luke Solomon reworking ‘Wait For Love’ with a retro bumpy house feel. New Yorker Eli Escobar stamps his signature arpeggio fuelled nu-disco stamp on ‘Wait For Love’ to follow, resulting a typically classy cut from the rising artists.
Tact Recordings founder Yard One reworks ‘Nowhere To Hide’ next adding a frenzied feel to the original cut with swirling, dubbed out rhythms and menacing 303 tones, Jacob Meehan’s ‘Love Songs’ rework maintains a similar aesthetic also, laying the focus on trippy, acid tinged hooks and robust drums. Brighton’s Spatial Awareness strips thing backs to a raw rhythm and square wave bass focused feel, while Joshua Iz shapes up the remixes on an authentic deep house tip with soft pad swells and snaking stab sequences. Last up to round off the package is a new original from the label founders, entitled ‘The Love Divine’ and in typical fashion from the duo we’re treated to infectious bass hooks, catchy vocal licks and low-slung drums.
The ‘Twirl Exclusives Vol.1’ various artist package is out on Twirl 30th October 2015.
