Minneapolis three piece Estate have been producing musical electronic gems for the last seven years, taking their sound on the road with the likes of Yelle, Ellie Goulding and Gigamesh and releasing three critically acclaimed albums and a host of singles. The trio are heavily influenced by an array of sounds with obvious links to 70's and 80's funk, soul, electro and new wave, as well as modern house and nu-disco; in their own words they simply look to 'make feel good music that is at home on the dancefloor or in the bedroom'.
For their latest single Estate team up once again with the Bass United Recordings label, an imprint that has been pushing outstanding eclectic and electric music for the last decade. The single kicks off with a remix of 'Slipstream' by Australian producer DCUP who turns in a chopped up electro influenced reworking that provides an outstanding alternative to the 'Official' version which is a catchy and uplifting slice of disco pop that marries classic synths and rich bass with the bands distinctive vocals, quality stuff. The 'Official' mix is followed by a remix from label boss Dirty McKenzie whose 'Flutestream mix' does what it says on the tin, delivering a delightful version that pulls together a retro 70's disco B-line with funk guitar licks and standout flute solo providing an excellent alternative to the other mixes.
The second 'Official' track comes in the shape of 'Pressure's On' a soulful and laidback cut that shows Estate's chilled side with it's hypnotic vocoded vocals and heart stirring melodies. The original version is backed up with a mix from new US artist Sloslylove who drops a delightfully left of center reworking that utilizes fluid sounding drums and intense pads to provide a perfect soundbed for the vocal parts, sublime stuff.
This is another winner from Estate and the ever excellent Bass United Recordings, enjoy!
