Genre: Deep House / House
SIS, an artist I started following when I first heard “Orgsa” back in 2007, introduces the springtime almost 10 years later with his newest release “Karmir Nur EP” on Crosstown Rebels. Their relationship goes back quite some time as he had his first release with them in 2009, and he is also a regular on labels such as Defected, Suruba X, and Kindisch.
Crosstown Rebel probably needs little to no introduction as it has established itself as a unique label that always delivers high-quality music. Run by Damian Lazarus who focuses on having a healthy mix of established artists and talented newcomers represented on his label, the sound moves mainly between Deep House and Tech House and is always fresh, interesting and club approved.
“Karmir Nur” smoothly sets the tone for the release with a sensual groove and neat strings accompanying sets of shamanic vocals that make you look forward to those lazy sunny festival days. The second track of the release is “Tima”, also here there is a heavy focus on melodic strings providing a trace of an oriental vibe pulsating with the build-up of the track. “Dandini” is the most driving one of the three, and we are again met by chanting vocals functioning as the main element supported by chimes and hypnotic drums.
A beautifully constructed EP that takes the listener on a journey into the depths of shamanic and oriental influences. SIS creates a mesmeric soundscape to lull the listeners into his world music, and it is working.
