Premiere: Dmitri Saidi, Side B – Me Gusta [MOXY MUZIK]

Dance music powerhouse Moxy Muzik is back with a superb new various artists EP featuring Man Power, Max Chapman, Dimitri Saidi, Camilo Do Santos and Deltech. This is the first in a new concept series that sees label head Darius Syrossian offering up two different sounds on one 12” – in this case classic house and minimal feature with one side for the purists and the other for the party animals.

Man Power aka Newcastle’s Geoff Kirkwood runs both Me Me Me and We We We and has served up his genre-busting sounds on a range of classy labels. His superb ‘Chozen’ is a brilliantly hard to define sound with a standout double bass sound that could be borrowed from prime Roni Size while seductive jazz vocals from Mizbee up top bring the soul. Add in twitchy electronics, layers of percussion and driving drums and you have a fantastically original track. Chozen feat. Mizbee (Max Chapman Remix) is a much more club-ready and thumping house cut with an irresistible and weighty groove and lush synths that dance about the mix next to the well treated vocals.

Dmitri Saidi then keeps it deep with the chunky drums of Me Gusta which has a playful lead, and he also links with Deltech on Love Pain, a tight and punchy cut with perfectly stripped back drums and plenty of freaky late night energy. Last of all he links with Camilo Do Santos for the seductive and silky minimal house of Mama. All 3 of his tracks have been getting strong support from Loco Dice and Jamie Jones and others in Ibiza all summer.

These are two very different sides of music but all are equally fantastic tracks.
