From running his imprint 8Bit to curating his ‘Trust’ events which he’s taken from Sonus Festival to Watergate, Cécille Records’ co-founder Nick Curly (who runs Cécille with Marc Scholl) is helping celebrate its milestone fiftieth release with his ‘Altrip’ EP. Unveiling two new tracks and a rework from Manda Moor known for her Paradise residency, and reaching number one on Beatport’s top 100 release chart with her Hot Creations ‘Picante’ EP, it marks a historic moment for the Mannheim-based label.
With chunky sub-bass complimented by its punchy drum programming, the title-track ‘Altrip’ starts the EP, while ‘It’s You And Me’ keeps the same pounding energy, with rolling note arpeggios and scuttling percussion moving through its mix. Then Manda Moor’s ‘Burning Remix’ of ‘Altrip’ injects her high-octane sounds into the original with ravey stabs, pan drums and diced vocal samples.
In the last quarter of the year, Cécille Records is relaunching its event series in collaboration with Peoples Agency, and two official dates have emerged which will mark its start. Alongside Nick Curly, artists like Sidney Charles, Manda Moor, Leon, Dennis Quin, Fabe, and many more will be joining them, launching at a 2000-capacity Groove Fest London-owned tent, as well as at ADE with the promoter Hush at Melkweg Club in Amsterdam.
The ‘Altrip’ EP from Nick Curly arrives via Cécille Records on 22nd September 2023. You can now listen to the full premiere of ‘Altrip’ exclusively on When We Dip. Enjoy!
