Christophe Salin – It’s Probably Me [Salin Records]


Label head Christophe Salin is back on his own imprint which he co-founded with his partner and talented artist Daria Salin several years ago. Starting off by just releasing his own material, the label then shifted to releasing other artists, beginning with a stellar VA and moving on to include now well-known producers such as Sable Blanc, Diamond, Saint Paul and Tour-Maubourg. This is Christophe’s first solo release on his own imprint in two years, entitled “It’s Probably Me”, and it dives deep.

Today we premiere the A2 and title track from the forthcoming record. A classic driving bass, kick and hat combo open up the track as introspective keys slowly creep in. As the piano melody takes centre stage, a haunting, introspective mood is developed while still being carried by the rolling bass beneath it. Salin employs a classic formula to achieve a simple yet supremely emotional track while keeping the sonic textures clean and polished. This one is made for dark and sweaty small rooms in the late night hours. We can’t wait until the opportunity is there to tap our toes to this one in our favourite haunts.

The rest of the EP is no slouch either with some further nods to the classic deep house sound that we know and love, reaching for influences from Detroit to Chicago and beyond. It also includes a stellar remix of the title track by Iron Curtis that’s not to be missed.
