The 14th release on Just Movement welcomes Yuriy From Russia to the label with a brand new single entitled ‘Salton Sea’.
The Russian producer widely regarded for his prolific production prowess is one of the more versatile artists in the underground. You never know quite what to expect from Yuriy as he seems equally adept at producing deep, dubby grooves as he is at big progressive stormers. His latest studio creation and also debut single for Just Movement looks to be his strongest work yet and includes remixes from Rogier & Stage Van H and Manu F.
The ‘Salton Sea’ original leads the release off and finds Yuriy exploring a deep, melodic sound perfect for the summer club season. A funky yet driving groove sets the track in motion as an array of sparkling melodies fades into the mix. As the track builds airy textures paint a scenic soundscape before a smooth sax riff adds a touch of soul. Jangly guitars bring the track nicely into the breakdown as the seaside atmosphere grows to serene levels. The records third act finds Yuriy working all the musical elements together for the ultimate blissful conclusion. Definitely one of his all time best works to date.
The first interpretation of ‘Salton Sea’ is provided by Rogier & Stage Van H who are returning to Just Movement for their eleventh appearance. We last heard from the much loved production duo with their remix of Marcelo Paladini’s Librarians’ which was released in early May. For their ‘Salton Sea’ interpretation Rogier & Stage Van H have taken the smooth, musical vibes from Yuriy’s original and added their own progressive touch. The duo’s warm beats and alluring textures have added a wonderful depth to the instrumentation and a more prominent vocal component adds further beauty. Following a tranquil breakdown a tepid rush of groovy beats and glowing textures lifts the track higher to a heavenly conclusion. A perfect alternative to Yuriy’s deeper original from Rogier and Stage.
The second and final interpretation of ‘Salton Sea’ is provided by Manu F who is returning to Just Movement for his second appearance. The Argentinean producer teamed up with Mexico’s Daniel Gomez on Just Movement’s tenth release which resulted in the excellent ‘Freyja’. Here Manu tackles Yuriy’s Salton Sea’ with equally exciting results. With a dreamier and more dubby approach Manu’s well shaped grooves and soft textures are sure to enchant even the most discerning electronic music aficionados. Highlighted by its angelic vocal pads and fluttery melodies it closes the release incredibly strong and sits as Manu’s all time best work. Another fabulous release for Just Movement which hits just in time for the spring / summer club season. Don’t miss it.
