After five releases Zurich's Drumpoet Community have found a fanbase for our deep and emotive sound. The "Turn Loose EP" has already received massive support from DJs like Âme, Chateau Flight and Dixon. It's rated highly by some of our favourite producers like Mr. Henrik Schwarz. This young collective going by the name of Soultourist is fuelled for the future and belongs to the most promising Swiss acts. Their understanding of Soul, House and Techno is unusual for their age. Their skills are mindblowing and their vision is one step ahead of it's time.
Soultourist is a collective of four producers from Zurich consisting of Foster, Ron Shiller, Thabo and Big Clap. Each also working individually on their own solo projects. They exchange their beats and join forces for a new sound which finds it's roots in boogie, soul, Detroit, minimal and house. The first release was "Make it right" which was released in 2005 on Sonar Kollektiv and was a big tune among the eclectic DJ community. It was playlisted by the likes of Jazzanova, Rush Hour and Rainer Trüby to name just a few. With their second 12" "Yeah!" on Drumpoet in 2006 they reached a new crowd including people like Carl Craig and Âme.
With this sixth release for Drumpoet, the boys provide a serious and essential 12". It's such a euphoric tune although it is really deep and not at all in your face. Dixon mentioned that it's one of the highlights on his residency Innercityvisions in Berlin. On the flip side there are 2 more winners. "Lowfield High" follows the same vibe whereas "Side Dish" is a huge 100 bpm monster for fans of Maurice Fulton.
