All those gems have been played all over by our honchos and partners and now finally see their release here.
Ukrainian duo Orbit & Belogurov have long been responsible for crafting out some subtle and expert minimal house wares, and it’s a trick they repeat with distinction here – this time courtesy of Cesare vs Disorder’s and Quenum’s always on-point Serialism label. Backed by a remix of rising star Stephan Bazbaz (who teams up here with Asael Weiss), the Issue EP features three originals as well as the aforementioned remix, with each track on show most definitely worthy of your attention. Coming back to classic dub house on this release and also featuring some a flourish of minimal swing on the remix, ‘The Issue’ follows much-appreciated releases by The Mole and with a Cesare vs Disorder original on its way (will one will come backed with a remix by Dan Andrei) and a Quenum also (with a remix by Luciano) these are heady times indeed for the São Paulo/London based imprint.
Serialism Records tenth anniversary continues with momentum and another essential package, Cesare vs Disorder & Quenums Azimute project returns to the imprint. The boys have been touring the world and putting the final touches on their fourth coming album. “We Are The Sound” feat Rocky Washington came out on Serialism in 2015 with massive support. the long awaited part 2 remixes are finally here! First up we have Romanian duo Livio & Roby deliver punchy drum machine programming and underlying percussion, which propels this number effortlessly, with an infectious no urgency mood. Azimute‘s Trippy Remix is just that, its stripped back and minimalistic, with a low droning sub and eerie pads, this one is deep! Alex Smoke takes a turn and presents an almost 80’s electro drum groove with rave lead stabs that surge through the arrangement To finish off this killer remix package, Russian starlet Anushka.
Yet another exciting year has flown by and the sound of Serialism has grown from strength to strength. We have hosted label nights in clubs, warehouses and festivals all over the world, and we are very proud to have gained more fans everywhere we go.
