Stereogamous feat. Shaun J. Wright: 'Face Love Anew'
Stereogamous has built a solid name in the dance scene by remixing big artists such as Kylie Minogue, LCD Soundsystem, Sia and Sam Sparro in the past couple years. The openly gay Australian duo finally ventured into their first original release, with their new track 'Face Love Anew,' out only on vinyl at the moment (digital release to follow next week). This powerful debut track relies on the vocal work of Shaun J. Wright, whose voice you might recognize from the latest Hercules And Love Affair album, Blue Songs. 'Face Love Anew' (listen to the full version here) is an extremely sophisticated house music track that immerses us in deep hypnotic sounds and Wright's chants for the initial 5 minutes, before finally bursting into one of the most beautiful melodies I have heard this year; the experience is comparable to watching a movie with an amazing twist ending. All 7:33 of this song are impactful and not to be missed.
Jonas Rathsman: 'W4W'
Gothenburg-based producer Jonas Rathsman is one of the talented members of the house music label French Express, alongside Perseus, Chris Malinchak, Moon Boots and Isaac Tichauer – all of which have been featured on the OXD Mirror in previous editions. Rathsman has re-worked tracks by The Magician in the past and his productions have been constantly featured in The Magician's famed Magic Tapes. His latest release, 'W4W,' a lovely piano-driven deep house track, has an optimistic mood that will easily get the attention of some happy house-loving souls out there.
