Release Sustain can boast an impressive catalogue with the likes of Fred P, Safeword and Alland Byallo having put material out on the label. Here they welcome back Himan to the imprint, while welcoming newcomer Temme Teje who recently featured on Cocoons M compilation in 2013. Kicking things off is the original mix of Potive from Temma-Teje, a classically deep track built upon resonant chords, an atmospheric, heavily reverberated organ hook and spoken word vocal lines. The record puts its focus on the groove for the majority of the piece, while the latter half sees additional melodic elements eased in to up the energy. Rush Hours Tevo Howard steps up to remix Potive next, taking all the beauty of the original mix with the organ and shimmering chords, but instilling an underlying grit through analogue drums and a stuttering acidic bass hook to truly stamp his unique mark on the composition. We have the original mix of In My Mind up first, from Release Sustain regular Himan. The Portuguese Cocoon Recordings artist treats us to his signature dubby house vibe again here, bringing a bumpy sub-driven hook the forefront alongside refined stripped percussion, while spaced out chord stabs and an expansive atmosphere build the bigger picture by subtly lingering throughout the cut. To close Dolly / Ostgut Ton artist Basic Soul Unit delivers a gritty interpretation of In My Mind, the Canadian producer opts from rumbling low-end, ethereal pads and earth-shattering off-kilter rhythms, while arpeggiated synths creep into the closing stages and truly round off this package as a heavy hitter.
