A Vision Of Panorama

Follow The Melody EP

Hailed as the king of the modern Balearic sound Mikhail Khvasko aka A Vision of Panorama makes his debut on Omena with another must have EP.

Imagine if Nu Guinea would organize a jam session with Metro Area and set up the following rules - combine doses of slow paced disco, hints of boogie, a dash of jazz and deep layers of house.
Mikhail's music has always been warm and dreamy combined with impeccably tight drum programming. It is no wonder why his music is played & charted by Lexx, Detroit Swindle, Kenneth Bager, Session Victim and many more...

Second time around for label boss Tooli on Omena and this time it's a remix package with an all-star line up! The original track was recorded in NYC a few years ago and this release contains the remixes of that very track for hotsteppas Mark Hand, FYI Chris and Saine. 
UK's unsung hero Mark Hand infuses the original with some UR vibes, the dynamic duo FYI Chris twist and turns the track into something truly original and finally Saine finish the whole thing off with a beautiful version you never want to end.

Omena continue to surprise and delight with this superb neo-Soul joint from Belarus ! Lipski deliver a smooth Giant Step era NY style rub, while Saine completely reinterprets the soulful flavous with some added weight and depth. Finally Harry Wolfman applies the swing for a low-slung head-nodder.
Top quality all the way !!

Sofa Talk already showed us his prowess on the refined label Banoffee Pies. He is bringing that delicate balance between bubbly jazz and deep house to the well known Omena label. 
Four tracks of gentle house with bubbles of jazz, funk and broken beat. All of if propelled by some deep house beats creating a perfect mix for a gentle dancefloor warmer. 

'Balancing Acts' is a double feature including the more dancefloor oriented Prequel mix. Keeping faithful to the original, puts more emphasis on the beats to keep things going. 

This ep will sit well among fans of Herbie Hancock, Kaidi Tatham and any Banoffee Pies follower. 

STAFF COMMENTS

Sil says: Nice and classy. Champagne rather than beer is the drink to order when you listen to this 12". The Prequel mix is gorgeous and so it is 'Scissors and Shapes' with its flirtations jazz licks. Great stuff!

Fresh from a debut on 100% Silk, Berlin artist Westcoast Goddess continues to set forth a vision of psycho-spiritual house music with this debut release on Omena.

"Springtime Forever EP" consists of 4 tracks dating from 1998 to the present, each representing a joyful season of the artist's heart.

Beginning with the Roule-indebted "Summer Song '98" - coursing with searing strings, flanging hooks and a loose house beat, this instantly transports the listener to a better time; before fear, surveillance and narcissism really grabbed hold of our society (Dave's just informed by that there was plenty of narcissism in the late 90s... but hey ho - ed).

"Better The..." is a highly musical number, with interplay between various synthesized elements, a stomping house beat and some brilliant keyboard solos. It has that getting-towards-the-end-of-the-session exuberance that you need when the DJ's only got a few records left to play and should find itself soundtracking a thousand 'lights-on' moments across clubland.

"No One Has 2 Know" sees an authentic NY house banger rolled out with aplomb. Complete with vocal, pumpin houz beats and tight synth stabs it's a no brainer for any main room or festival crowd.

"Blisstonia Babies" completes the set with another high end show boater; rich piano chords paired with lavish synthlines, trilling keys and arm-raising strings; an absolutely stonking house anthem with spine-tingling musicality and fathoms-wide smiles throughout. Nothing has embodied the feel good spirit of house music as much as this track this year! Massive.

As always, Ivo Kiusalaas has provided the label art.


Seb Wildblood's Omena LP, "The One With The Emoticon" gets remixed by a plethora of new and established talent from the global dance music village. Coastal house groovers Telephones are first to engage, imbuing "Wet Plants" with those crystalline blue skies and windswept hair styles that's fast become their standard. Tailor made for speedboat rides across the Adriatic! New girl Yu Su has previously released on cult labels Arcane and PPU. Here she coaxes "The One With The Emoticon" into the bedroom for a delicate and sensual rubdown that sounds super dreamy. Stockholm head and Studio Banhaus director, Kornel Kovacs is enlisted for a deliciously tasty retake of "Wet Summer"; injecting some radiance and futurism into its stems via some well synthesized sounds and disjointed rhythms. Finally, DK puts "Interlude" into the clouds via synth-choir vox, ascending keyboard parts and sumptuous pads; placing the track above the midday haze, gently riding the thermals without a care in the world. Amazing stuff here.
