|Affkt & Coyu - Nit Magica [Cr2 Records]|
|11 May 2010|
Our new release this week is a collaboration between two Spanish producers, Coyu who has released on Cr2 previously and Affkt who takes his debut with this EP. Both are successfully flying in the Beatport charts at the moment and are steadily being recognised as the ‘hot young producers’ to come from Spain.
Coyu otherwise known as Ivan Ramos is a young producer from Spain who loves playing daring, eclectic and innovative music. Not only a DJ he works also as a musical journalist, booking agent, label owner (Suara and Atypical Farm) and is showing huge potential as a producer. His international acclaim arrived with his second record, “El Baile Aleman”, released on liebe* detail in May 2009. It was his first Overall #1 on Beatport, but we’re sure it wont be his last. Last summer Coyu released records on labels such as Diynamic Music, Great Stuff Recordings, Diynamic Extra, Saved Records, Be As One and the mighty Cr2. Coyu’s releases are also being played by the likes of Ricardo Villalobos, Luciano, Laurent Garnier, Carl Cox, Loco Dice, DJ Hell, Dennis Ferrer, Axwell, Nic Fanciulli, Marco Carola and all the current international house/techno stars.
Affkt also comes from Spain and has had similar success in his recent production years. Recognised by his eclectic taste in music he also produces under different aliases and is one half of the drum n bass duo ‘Malsum’. Affkt’s biggest record to date is without doubt his ‘Points (El Prologo EP)’ on Barraca Music, but he’s also had success remixing the likes of Radio Slave, Spencer Parker, James Teej and John Talabot. Marc’s biggest talent lies in his mixing and live performances. His sets can be described quite simply as rocking and incorporate the whole spectrum from jazzy deep house sounds to driving electronic tech house. Marc has already been a regular feature in some of the best clubs around the world.
‘Nit Magica’ and ‘Get it Alive’ are groovy house tracks with summer infused vibes. ‘Nit Magica’ has strong piano rifts, which gradually increase to an uplifting climax. The excellent use of a harping vocal note only serves to enhance the track and the abrupt breakdown and gradual build in the middle section creates a blissful atmosphere fit for any peak time set. ‘Get It Alive’ is slightly more chilled than it’s counterpart, using a placid vocal sample and funk guitars, this track is uplifting, chunky and funky all rolled into one. The driving force of the drums used explicitly towards the middle of the track allows for a low impact breakdown, which fits beautifully with the Sitar sounds. Bohemian and summery these two tracks are definitely what you need to take you into the Ibiza season.
