London-based Claptrap label is back with their 4th release. We had a chance to premiere a track from it’s previous release by Donald Dust. This time the label is showcasing Berlin’s talent. Longhair is surely a staple name amongst those who are familiar with what’s going on in Berlin’s infamous Salon zur Wilden Renate or just Renate club. The duo consists of Renate’s residents Marko (Homeboy) and Bene (1/2 of Peak & Swift). Guys already made releases on Renate’s own label (Renate Schallplatten) and also on Amsterdam’s stalwart label Bordello a Parigi.
The brand new Heatwave EP consists of 3 original dancefloor-aimed compositions and one remix from another Berlin’s standout name Johannes Albert, a man behind excellent Frank Music label. It’s really an understatement to say that we’re really happy to premiere Johannes remix for a title track here on Bolting Bits.
Johannes is elevating the original dreamy, lush and tropical vibes to the next level by adding some extra early 90’s tinged melodies on the keys, but also keeping the original piano riff in place. More often than not it’s really tough to beat the original version of the track which already sounds close to perfection and it takes real talent to outshine it. We will leave that judgement to your ear and taste buds, but we strongly believe that Johannes take on the original gets us as close as defining “balearic euphoric house” as possible. Prepare yourselves to lose an extra pound or two on the dancefloor.
Both vinyl and digital versions drop on 28th of February, so pre-order your copy today.
