Nereau Records dives into 2019 with the first release of its new catalogue series: Compass. As the music scene undergoes continuous changes, we decided to make a clear move towards a future which combines the exploration of the electronic music realm with the exploitation of the most sophisticated declinations of contemporary club music.
Compass is the natural development of this philosophy: we want to provide DJs, producers and clubbers with the best music out there. That’s the reason why we decided to work with Helena Piti, alias Argia, whose artistic talent perfectly complies with our mission. She had an amazing 2018, with awesome releases on labels such as Stil Vor Talent and Natura Viva, gaining momentum and playing in some of the coolest European venues.
The ‘Albion’ EP, masterfully crafted by Helena’s taste, features two beautiful originals and an incredible remix by Italian duo Early Morning. The opening track ‘Kreuzwege’ revolves around a dark groove which, during a couple of short breaks, becomes nearly sinister; the rhythm evokes a lost tribalism that is truly fascinating – it’s legit to say this is Argia’s tradermark.
‘Albion’ goes even deeper into this ritualistic atmospheres: the carefully selected percussive and melodic patterns, whose subtle presence is kind of enigmatic, grow into an amazing moment of suspance – the winds definitely do the trick.
On remix duties, as mentioned before, we are pleased to host Early Morning, whose recent outings on Ephemeral Music and Wide Angle Recordings made some noise in the network. They really gave ‘Albion’ an unexpected twist, creating a melodic convolution where smooth chords and minimal pluckers come together gloriously.
Jump on board, grab the Compass and raise the anchor with us…
