Cécille Records welcomes the return of Leon to the imprint this June with his ‘Sissy’ EP, accompanied by a remix from UK trio Mason Collective.
Cécille has a long-standing history with Leon dating back to 2009 when he released his second career track. His mesmerizing production ‘Rain in Rio’ claimed the Nr.1 spot on Beatport in 2009 and earned esteemed recognition from Mixmag as one of the best tracks of the season.
Since then, Leon has held prestigious residencies at iconic venues, like Marco Carola’s Music On Ibiza, a residency he has maintained since its inception in 2012. Additionally, he has captivated audiences at Cocoricò renowned as the most awarded club in Italy. Leon’s talent and presence have left an enduring impact on the global music scene.
Here, Leon makes a welcome return to the main Cécille imprint with more loop-led, club-ready cuts. For the a-side of the release Leon offers up ‘Sissy’s Track’, laid out across six and a half minutes with his signature rhythmic style, fusing organic percussion and a bouncy sub bass groove with fluttering, filtered synth licks and hip house vocal lines.
Following on the B-side is the second original from Leon, entitled ‘Ye Ye Ye Yeah’ and laying down a crisp, skippy drum groove alongside choppy vocal cuts, ethereal pad swells and a striking low-end drive. To round out the release, Manchester UK’s Mason Collective turn in their interpretation of ‘Sissy’s Track’, extracting the core groove and soul of the original while stamping their own mark on things via intricately intertwined synth work, a murky bass groove and an overall bumpy house feel.
You can now listen to the full premiere of ‘Sissy’s Track’ exclusively on When We Dip. Enjoy!
