8 min read

The latest release from Droid9 finds Jonathan Reyes & Gabriel Filip teaming up for a new single alongside remixes from Monojoke, Pedro Capelossi and Kenan Savrun. Based in Cyprus the duo have remixed each other on multiple occasions for SANILLE Records while owning a collective discography with releases on 3rd Avenue, BeatFreak Recordings, Movement Recordings. Now landing on Droid9 for their first collaboration Jonathan and Gabriel present 'Black Bird'.

‘Black Bird’ represents the meeting of two creative minds for the first time and the end result is a deep groover that’s perfectly suited to set the mood of your dance floor. Dark and dramatic from the outset, it’s rolling foundation is complemented with spacey effects and a billowing tonal theme. Grainy sweeps add nicely to it's astral feel while classic chord changes and unique sonic artifacts make for a memorable and at times emotive break. The narrative shifts as the centrepiece unfolds, slowly melting down to a tepid rumble before a timely drop sparks a driving final.

Returning to the label and providing the first interpretation of 'Black Bird' is Mokojoke. Having first appeared on the US label in 2014, the Polish artist also lays claim to releases on Antrim's Or Two Strangers, Juicebox Music and Soundteller Records. Now providing his second remix for Droid9, the Cracow resident opts for a slighter more melodic rendition resulting in a great complement to the original. The dark, ominous vibe remains across the first act but a reworked low end and beefed up percussion section add a groovier feel overall, while the main break elevates mood in classic Monojoke fashion.

Pedro Capelossi returns to the label for the second remix following his collaborative EP with NOISYE PROJECT 'Phoenix Symphony' from June of this year. The Argentinean artist continues to rise with a mix that complements its predecessors quite nicely. A warm, reshaped groove adds more of a pure progressive vibe while reprocessed elements add an ethereal touch to the journey. Perhaps the most poignant moment on the release lies during the break with bassy swells flowing through classic chord changes, elevating mood in a profound way before a tranquil interlude sets up a tasteful drop.

Rounding out the release and providing the third and final interpretation is Kenan Savrun. Hailing from Ankara, the Turkish artist has a long history as a DJ dating back to 2003, having shared the booth with Alex Niggemann, Eli and Fur, Andy Bros, Victor Ruiz and Oliver Huntemann. Upon releasing his first productions in September of last year, Kenan has since gone to showcase his music on 3rd Avenue, Eat My Hat Music, Soundteller Records, Stripped Digital and Stellar Fountain’s Astrowave. Now debuting on Droid9 Kenan provides a powerful take on 'Black Bird'. Beginning with punchy beats, chunky bass stabs and crisp design, the piece moves forward with a driving momentum. It’s flowing groove gets nicely complemented with electric lines and rhythmic tones, before a hypnotic break shifts energy into an exhilarating third act. A superb remix from Kenan which rounds out another excellent release on Droid9. Don’t miss it.
