DBR020: Myrryrs – Feel U
Young US producer Myrryrs is the latest signing to Discobelle Records and his “Feel U EP” has been in the works for a couple of months now but still has us giddy with excitement. His influences are listed as the dark, the light and the drums. That holy trinity is certainly evident in his productions.
The title track “Feel U” sees him square off light, angelic r’n’b esque vocals and disco synths against stuttering bass sounds for THE late night club hit of the darker months to come.
“C?U?M” is dark and brooding with a beat that is reminiscent of fingers snapping and a steamy trade off of eerie, pitched down telephone messages as vocals suggests late night encounters of the rated R nature.
“Without You” continues on the darker side of Myrryrs productions. Light vocals emerge from a soundscape of whizzing synths and a slow, dragged out beat that inadvertently will make your head nod and your feet move.
The title track receives three remixes from acts spread across the US and Europe, they are full of vibes – albeit they’re all different.
L.A producer Samo Sound Boy comes hot off the heels from his EPs for prominent US labels Palms Out and Trouble & Bass with a pounding tropical bass remix that incorporates a driven vibe with huge synth stabs and the added twist of urging vocals.
Paris based maestros of that new French club sound – Bambounou and Teki Latex – lays it down Eurostyle with a twisting and jerking beat. Teki brings forth a yearning side of his characteristic swag to the table for what could best be described as an all out odyssey into sweatfueled basement clubs from Atlanta to Paris all filled with a pulsating body of people losing their senses to the sleazy neonlit dimension of the French maestros.
Meanwhile, Charlotte production duo Clicks & Whistles gives us a taste of what’s to come on Discobelle Records. They’re releasing a split EP with Seattle based producer cedaa later this autumn. Their anthemic six minute remix focuses on an addictive synthline that seems to be lifted straight off an 80’s 8-bit computer game, it sinks its hooks into your brain and won’t let go.
Listen to the whole EP below and then download the bonus remix from Voltron!
Not a part of the original release package but no less exceptional is this Voltron remix, which adheres to a tightly paced early-rave workout including Footsteps shuffling down a hallway, tuning forks and a breakdown that sounds like two young dolphins in love who are communicating underwater, maybe plotting some kind of anti-human mutiny. Ecstatic, weird, fun dance music for the ages.
