IMOGEN

Ilja Rudman gives birth to 'Essential Dynamics' which is also offered in many forms on this 12". The original is a disco pop tune with a bit a heavy electronic feel. A gentle acid line acompanies the soothing vocals and an ominous bassline. 
 
Fred Everything ups the ante a bit and makes the beat more housey and dancefloor centered. He also throws in a great synth key that gives the track the oomph that perhaps is lacking on the original. This is the one for papuso here. 
 
Kai Alce goes Moodymannesque on his revision creating a groovy, intimate journey with the vocals and sytnths the focus of attention. This is a house tune ladies and gents. 
 
Ashley Beedle brings some exoticism and organic feel to the track as he always does. He exctracts the funk that was always there and brings it to the forefront. Killer bassline there for you. 
 
Decent package of remixes that elevates the status of the original. One to look out for. 
 
'Tour' is the one for me. This one is deep with a solidly formed 4/4 beat and those tribalesque beats and sounds permeating through the track as it evolves. 
 
'Seize Sept' is that track that wants but cannot. Asyncopated beat and a powerful groove welcome a bad boy bassline that can cause serious damage in any club with a decent crowd. This one is one to pay attention to. A true sleeper. 
 
So there you have it, another Whities, another hit in my books. Get it as this label sells out pretty fast.

Sil says: Pretty good compendium of remixes of the highest order on this Ilja Rudman 12". Fred Everything and Kai Alce fit perfectly in any house mix.

Drop drawer release from esteemed Brooklyn producer Darshan Jesrani - famous for work with Metro Area and Siren alongside plenty of solo material. You always sense when Darshan's involved - slowly those chord progressions take hold and it clicks and you're like 'ahhh yeah, of course it is...'.

This is perfectly evident on A side track, "Gotta Do", which after familiarizing us with a kinetic electronic groove; mellows out with fluttering Rhodes plumes, adding that patented Jesrani warmth.

B-side track, "Take Me" sees a typically fizzy rhythm section dotted with toms and woodblock suddenly give way to angelic keyboard and bass interplay, before re-introducing a new crisp beat pattern to propel the track alongside Umami's sexy and seductive vocal part. Lush n dreamy and very very good!

Matt says: Jesrani opens up 2019 with a duo of house heaters executed with all the typical style and pinache we expect of this Brooklyn bod.

Cosmic Croat, Ilija Rudman has been a prolific face on the global Balearic / Adriatic scene for about the last 15 years. Appearing on labels like Is It Balearic? and running his own Imogen label as well as extensive DJ appearances and remixes.

"Paradigma" is his third studio album, and finds the esteemed producer exploring daytime and nighttime moods across its seven well formed tracks. At one moment you might be wistfully cruising down the sultry boulevards of "Temptations Trial", only to cosy up with the comely tones of "Creamfields" or the vibrant chords of "Elastica". By and large it's a downtempo affair for private reflection, steeped in 80s glamour and produced with a crystalline perfection to add that all-important glint to your life.
