Sabo’s record label Sol Selectas welcomes a new EP from rising organic house star Raidho, which also includes remixes by West & Hill, LUM, plus AMÉMÉ & NenaHalena.
This is Raidho’s second solo EP on Sol Selectas in addition to his tracks on two different Summer Sol compilations. He has also released tracks on other labels such as Bar 25 Music and 3000 Grad Records.
Based in Poland, Raidho is well-known for his flowing tribal rhythms and enchanting melodies which he blends with mystical atmosphere to create captivating tracks that radiate heat like rays from the desert sun.
AMÉMÉ and NenaHalena are two of the most exciting new talents in the Afro house scene. Ameme recently featured an EP on Crosstown Rebels and collaborated with Jamie Jones for a track on Cercle Records. NenaHalena boasts music on Stil Vor Talent, Saved Records and Hyena’s Rise Music.
‘Jaguar Dance’ is the first of the original tracks and it opens with a suspense-building intro before breaking into the groove of an old Detroit classic that’s been pitched down and layered with Arabic horns and other ambient textures. It’s a modern take on a timeless classic that’s been transformed from techno into organic house.
AMÉMÉ and NenaHalena’s remix of ‘Jaguar Dance’ is an Afro house rework with added percussion and their own synth stabs layered with a teasing section of the melody. The extended breakdown introduces the full melody in all its glory before reaching a spine-tingling crescendo just before the tribal groove kicks back in.
‘Whispers’ is second of the original tracks and it’s a slow burner built around an organic percussion loop with hypnotic rhythms. Its trippy atmosphere features ethereal vocals, swelling synth pads and delicate melodies that combine to create a mystical vibe that flows with majestic energy.
West & Hill’s remix of Whispers adds additional breakdown sections while also giving a slight boost in tempo. It also brings more focus to the melody parts and adds some delicate guitar chords which add poignant emotion to compliment the soothing atmosphere they have created.
‘Slow Life’ closes the release with its downtempo groove and psychedelic vibe which make use of spine-tingling pads and haunting synths that are truly mesmerising. Its melodic bass chords add to the ceremonial vibe of this epic track.
LUM provides two alternative remixes, the first of which is his up-tempo ‘Trespuntocero – Los Tigres Del Futuro Mix’ which strips back the percussion to create a deep and techy version with added atmosphere. LUM’s ‘After Party Mix’ takes a different approach and focuses on the original percussion with the addition of an acid-tinged bassline and the removal of the kick drum.
The artwork by Helia Jamali takes us on a journey through the heart of the jungle, in its chaotic, yet so organised state of being.
