Cinthie launches her new imprint 803 Crystal Grooves Collective Cuts this December with a VA featuring S3A, 9th House, Kettama and Asquith.
Berlin’s Cinthie launched her 803 Crystal Grooves imprint in 2018 and marked a new chapter for her own productions, gaining widespread recognition across the globe for her take on raw House, Techno and Disco. Now 2019 sees the label branch out off the back of its success with a sub-label entitled 803 Crystal Grooves Collective Cuts, as the name would suggest, a home for music from the friends and likeminded artists of the label founder.
S3A takes the lead on the package with ’92 Anthem (My Answer To Strahil)’, a fitting name for the composition which features an anthemic piano hook, heavily swung drums and spoken word vocals harkening back to the 90’s rave heyday. 9th House’s ‘Equinox’ follows with an amalgamation of bass and resonant synth arpeggios flowing in unison amongst crunchy, dynamic drums and airy strings.
KETTAMA’s ‘Smoke A Sec’ opens the flip-side, the Irish House stalwart delivers his classic style via robust drums, choppy stab sequences and hooky vocal work before Lobster Theremin’s Asquith completes the package with ‘Gurgle’, fusing bumpy breaks and ethereal chords with a weighty, elongated bass groove.
