With Jamie Stevens having new music out now on Movement Recordings and Selador we take a look at his favourite tracks of the moment in the latest edition of What’s In Your Box?
Li-Polymer – Mysticism (Jamie Stevens Remix) [Movement Recordings]
I’ve liked Li-Polymer’s productions for a very long time and I think he just gets better and better so when Movement asked me if I could remix one of his tracks, I was very keen. This was great fun to work on.
Roman Rai – Perceptions of Delusion (Ian Metty Rework) [Deepwave]
Deepwave is a label I’ve been taking notice of recently and this EP is a doozy. Ian’s remix kicks things into overdrive with a massive, euphoric yet dark tribal workout.
Alland Byallo & Mz Sunday Luv – End Of Days [22 Digit Records]
Deep, relentless, moody, dubbed-out house business. A perfect plateau for the right moment. I love that it has a bit of an H-Foundation vibe.
Djuma Soundsystem – Disambigua (Jonathan Kasper Remix) [Chapter 24]
Kasper is a bit of a fave of mine and this is a great example of why. Impeccable production, loads of warmth and drama… what more could you want?
Jepe – Neo Boheme (JEPE & Juaau Earthumental Rise Mix) [Perce]
This track oozes class. So much atmosphere packed into this beauty. Wonderfully hazy, harmonic textures run throughout this one. Gorgeous.
Sebastien Chenut – Loftlovers feat. Chloe (Moderna Remix) [bORDEL]
One for taking things into darker territory, Moderna does a sterling job of playing with dynamics and drive. The acid work is strong here and the gated vocal nod to 90s trance gets two thumbs up from me.
Monkey Safari – Sign [Hommage]
These guys are going in a bit of a new direction with their new album. Stripped back and deadly with a lovely vocal that sounds like Antony Hegarty.
Between Ourselves – Tunnel Vision (Melokolektiv Remix) [Galaktica Records]
Great drums, great arrangement with the drop in 2nd half lifting giving the track an incredible lift. It’s a subtle yet very effective track that I keep going back to.
Audiofly & Patrice Baumel – Atacama [Crosstown Rebels]
This is huge. Again, it’s deceptively simple but it can be relied upon to take the proceedings up a notch or two. Massive stuff from two legends (or three, rather)
EdOne – Caramel (Jamie Stevens Remix) [Selador]
This remix of mine is closer to my Tech Dub remixes where I generally take a more abstract approach and keep melodies to a minimum. EdOne’s work is great so this was a pleasure to work on. I went for a bit of a twisted percussive approach here with an intense breakdown and I’m very happy with how it came out.
