Dutch production duo Mason burst onto the dance music scene back in 2007 and are now set to release their second album “ZOA” on August 26th, the album is an eclectic collection of genre-bending, electronic based jams that crosses between italodisco to house, electro to indiepop.

“For the last two years we’ve released lots of club oriented stuff, but kept on making all kinds of other music in the background. Making only club driven tracks 24/7 is just a bit dull!” says Iason. We had absolutely no musical boundaries making ZOA. Anything goes, as long as we’re digging it. It’s the opposite of writing DJ tool ‘fodder’, or pre-fabricated radio hits. It made the whole process so enjoyable.”

The first album single is the funky track “Gotta Have You Back” features Rouge Mary of Hercules & Love Affair and this remix from Australian house producer Beni gives us a deep, stuttering house bass, cut up vocals and a general swagger that’s bound to make it a dancefloor hit.

Relish Recordings delivers their latest signing, International is a new duo from somewhere south of the Alps, Relish welcomes International. The inaugural release – “River Seine” – is an Ibiza meets Manchester piano driven number with 909 snares, simple delays and tightly enveloped chords lend that Detroit nod. Hercules & Love Affair member Kim Ann Foxman provides us with a more discofueled remix where she even adds a bit of her own vocals to give the remix that little extra something.
