Heatstroke alert! To celebrate the summer, Utrecht based record label Something Happening, Somewhere decided to release no less than three digital compilations in the coming weeks. Celebrate the summer with SoHaSo.
Part one of the summer series contains four tracks. We asked those involved to look back on their contributions in their own words.
Eefje De Visser & Nuno Dos Santos - Wit Blad (Mattheis Remix)
Nuno: "This track is almost four years old and was only available on vinyl. Now it's available digitally for the first time. Our dear friend Mattheis remixed Wit Blad and gave it a strong hypnotic vibe. It contains those Mattheis' trademark synth swirls. Soothing and driving with spine-tingling harmonics slowly creeping in and out."
Wanderist - Under The North Sea (1 half of Dam Swindle)
"This is the sort of dubby non-dance electronica that I love to make", says Wanderist. "Tracks like these exist in a world of their own and let the listener slowly drift away into whatever vibe they feel coming up. The track feels completely effortless and at ease with itself; traits that I also value very much in the people close to me."
Luuk van Dijk - Many Moons
Luuk: "I was listening to a podcast with DJ Benny Rodrigues and he mentioned a tune from E-Dancer, a track that had inspired him in the past. Then I listened to that tune and thought wooooooow, I want to make this kind of shit too. Then I started jamming and improvising in the studio. Many Moons was recorded in one take."
Melon - She Was
Melon: "I made this many moons ago with emotions of a forbidden love between two star signs who didn't connect because of being opposites in needs of compassion. They say opposites attract. I guess it does but not in the long run."
