Relive Camelphat’s impressive Essential Mix for BBC Radio 1

This post was originally published on this site

British DJ/producer duo CamelPhat are a creative match made in heaven for deep house enthusiasts. When the long-running duo of Dave Whelan and Mike Di Scala met while indulging their shared youthful obsession over vinyl at Liverpool’s 3B Records, little did the pair know that a Grammy nod was in the cards for their rare pop crossover club hit, “Cola” — which has now gone platinum after dominating the charts in 2017.

Following their b2b set with Solardo at EDC Las Vegas recently, the duo now brings their impressive BBC Radio 1 Essential Mix to fans for repeated listening pleasure. The two-hour mix stands as a testimony to Camelphat’s expert curation and penchant for vibrant house music, as the duo moves through Adriatique‘s “Voices From The Dawn,” Catz ‘N Dogz‘s remix of Claptone‘s “Under The Moon,” and, of course, a handful of their own singles in “Dopamine Machine” and “The Solution.”

ZHU has an uncanny talent for invigorating tracks with his own unique sound stamp. The Columbia Records signee has now turned his sights towards CamelPhat & Elderbrook‘s summer 2017 hit “Cola,” named the hottest record in the world by BBC Radio 1 upon its release on Defected Records.

ZHU brings on his own unique flare while doing well to churn out a lightly touched reboot that centers around elevating and equalizing Elderbrook’s crystalline voice. Layered with his signature dark sound design and lush, saturated beats, ZHU’s take on “Cola” is an exquisitely sophisticated firecracker.

Robin Schulz reworks CamelPhat & Elderbrook’s Grammy-nominated ‘Cola’

This post was originally published on this site

CamelPhat & Elderbrook’s “Cola” dominated 2017.

Deservedly nominated for a Grammy and named Beatport‘s No. 1 track of the year, it’s for certain the number is a telling testament to the changing tides of dance music. “Cola” is appeasingly emotive in its nature, but it’s a sensible production that appeals to clubbers and introspects alike, an ever-rising phenomenon in contemporary club culture in itself.

German producer Robin Schulz is the latest musical maven to be tapped for a rework of the anthem. After his rise to commercial success with edits like “Prayer In C” and “Waves,” it only makes sense he would take on this momentous work.

Schulz puts an expectedly enlivened spin on “Cola.” He dissects the original’s minimal production and introduces what seems like a mere tech house commencement, but eventually builds to a contrasting big-room deliverance. Most notably, Schulz’ contradting rework manages to maintain the original’s affective affluence with an ascension in the dance reigns.
