This 12“ is release #26 of Resopal Red and the debut and kick off of a new series concept. Resopal Red focuses on modern house in association to the modern digitality and antique analogism.
Since it’s first release in 2005 by chicago legend Dj Pierre Resopal Red tries always to bring innovations into dance music and continues to change concepts, style and genre. As we are all getting more and more digital minimal and this is the result of the teamwork inbetween musician programmer, program and consumer, while everything is available everywhere on demand we think it’s time to spread some words and music about how and why we started a label and get hooked up to it. The current club sound under the term digital minimal is disused more and more as an excuse for repitative uninspired productions without any musical references. Our intention was and still is to create and compile a contribution to the electronic music fans. To work, to share and to exchange with each other; the DJ, the artists and the labels we love. Mainly small labels and producers based in Paris, Cologne, Athens which share a certain, similar view of house. It's amazing seeing all these great labels like Oslo, Drumpoet, Sub Static to name a few doing what they do: pushing things in a creative way forward -- what probably the major companies have lost on their marketing overswept business: creating and producing new music. Future music. Or how Afrika Bambaataa back in the days used to say: „searching for the right kind of funk“. After celebrating the 25th release we think it’s time for a new concept: Asking the best current producers about their view on house music ( wether it’s jackhouse, microhouse, clickhouse, loops or beats ) and contribute a track to be released on vinyl and: share this vinyl with another artist. The result: Resopal Red showcases the finest in sound and design, including two brandnew tracks, carefully selected for the next music-lover of this very specific genre. Artists on this release: Philadelphia’s own “Someone Else” and greek wunderkind “Lemos” together with "Tonny Lasar" and Cali. We will not write any lines about the clever drum programming and the thick bass and cleverly placed vocal snippets blah blah blah... Simple listen and enjoy but:
always remember: never repeat
