In 2017 French producer Erell Ranson delivered Hand in Hand, his first EP for Amsterdam-based label, Kalahari Oyster Cult. A year and a half on and the imprint, run by Colin Volvert, have decided to return to the release and give it some renewed attention.
Cherry picking two tracks from the EP, Volvert has enlisted the help of DJ Normal 4, Pariah and Sued boss SW to put their own spin on them. On today’s premiere, DJ Normal 4’s remix of ‘If We Never Try’, the Aiwo rec. co-founder gives the bubbling bass of the original a dubby warmth adding his signature breakbeat stylings through syncopated hi-hats and soft kick drums. True to its name the remix is saturated with the sounds of nature creating a tranquil yet uplifting reimagination of the original.
Hand in Hand The Remixes comes out on 5th December. Pre-order the vinyl.
