A key figure within Toronto's fast-rising electronic music scene, Canadian DJ, producer and label owner Demuir is quickly becoming a name of note within the current house music landscape. With releases to date via the likes of I'm A House Gangster, Robsoul, Hot Creations, Classic and Desolat, the Canadian's slick blend of classic house with modern touches has seen him become a favourite of many, with Cassy welcoming him as an A&R at her own Kwench Records imprint alongside support from industry heavyweights including The Black Madonna, Loco Dice and Jamie Jones. Following his contribution to the label's latest V/A installment earlier this year and a recent appearance alongside label boss Josh Butler at CODA in Toronto, late September welcomes a return to ORIGINS RCRDS as he reveals four fresh cuts in the form of his 'We Be Houzeln' EP.
Title cut 'We Be Houzeln' opens proceedings as Demuir combines skipping drums with infectious vocal snippets and a snaking classic core house groove, whilst 'Got X' raises the energy as warped synth lines and murky bass patterns take control amongst further female vocal snippets. Next, 'Clarity - Everyone Is Satisfied' sees the Canadian partner up with Romanian Paco Wegmann as the pairing fuse jacking drums, rich stab melodies and chunky bass licks, before closing with 'Tomorrow Is Not Today' - a paired back stylish effort guided by refined organic percussion arrangements, throwback vocal samples and delicate jazz-tinged melodies throughout.
