Dutch imprint and management house Ravage have been going from strength to strength since S.A.F.’s inaugural release on their Black Series nearly three years ago. Ravage are widely known within Amsterdam for putting on parties around the Dutch capital inviting the likes Perc, Truss, Pariah, Sunil Sharpe and Bleaching Agent, but are more recently recognized for their agency and imprint representing and releasing music from the likes of Binny, Isolated Lines, Głós, Induction, Hadone, Forward Strategy Group, Zadig, In Aeternam Vale, Dimi Angélis, Tadeo and many more.
Samot and Surit who together make up NX1, known for releases on their self-titled imprint, Modularz and Semantica Records get things rolling with their remix of ‘2 Coke Bottles’ delivering hard-hitting percussion metallic synth shrills and soaring modulations. Swiss producer and SBIRE co-founder, Isolated Lines is next up with a ‘Barney & Ted’ remix deploying machine-like modulations, heavy-duty kick drums and winding oscillations.
New York-based DJ and producer, Shawn O’Sullivan a member of Civil Duty and 4000PPM then offers sharp synth arrangements, hypnotic pads and a sturdy drum beat in his remix of ‘A Letter About a Sinking Depression’ before Rommek, who has releases on Blueprint, Methodical and Leyla Records provides an atmospheric remix of ‘Unaccepted Perseverance’ that fuses alleviating pads, syncopated grooves and otherworldly aesthetics throughout.
The digital package also features a fifth remix from Eye Teeth artist Israel Vines entitled ‘The Three’ as stabbing chords and reverberating bass bounce delicately off the sturdy yet vibrant kicks.
