Mutants mines the rich, musical landscape of Mother Russia...Think of dance music and chances are you conjure images of bronzed, Balearic bodies under the shadow of camouflage netting and a plane on final approach. Or a Gotham warehouse transformed into the darkest of dark rooms with rib-shattering sound, minimally furnished save for a strobe or mirror ball. Perhaps a muddy field in the depths of the British countryside during a month thats supposed to be summer, praying for warmth and sun; the list goes on... What wont be on that list though is Russia because, whilst the States, Ibiza and Britain were developing their own - soon to be legendary - dance cultures, it had the small matter of perestroika and an emerging democracy to deal with. Fast forward twenty years and we find the former Soviet Union more than making up for lost time, with some of the most dynamic clubs, festivals and, more importantly, DJ / producers in the world; a vast, vibrant, exciting country that can now boast a scene thats equally as vibrant and exciting. Leading the charge of the new wave behind this cultural tsunami is the young, supremely talented Eitro, whose CV already boasts labels such as Spinnin, Doorn, Garuda and Ultra, picking-up support from an EDM whos who of AVB, Avicii, Guetta, Tiesto, Thomas Gold, Sander Van Doorn, plus more along the way...Now this ever-growing band of famed comrades is set to continue with Verve, a sonic tour de force that undulates between ethereal melody, arpeggiated bass, Brazilian-inspired drums, arm raising breakdowns and a riff that qualifies as the dictionary definition term of hairs on the back of your neck. Verve started as a bit of an experiment for me, explains Eitro,I wanted to produce something that represented my own style of music whilst being truly special. I hope the fact its found a home on John Dahlbacks Mutants suggests as much, but one things for sure - its an honour to be here!For those who like a little more chunk in their electro trunk fellow label mate KitSch 2.0 provides a bouncing re-interpretation thats also destined for peak-time glory. But, whatever your preference, get ready for the Eitro revolution because its coming to a dancefloor near you soon!
