Off the back of recent releases with tracks from Basic Soul Unit, Tevo Howard and Fred P, London/Lisbon label Release Sustain rears its head with another slab of sophisticated, club ready wax. DJ Aakmael’s Journey EP.
This time the originals provided by US dance music mainstay, DJ Aakmael. Having contributed to the world of electronic music for well over 20 years via his radio shows and various well received 12’’s on labels like Uzuri & Kolour. Drawing on a lifetime of musical influence DJ Aakmael, real name Greg Stewart delivers two cuts rich in musicality and dipped in soul.
Joined on remix duties for the A2, Playhouse records hero Losoul. Unbelievably, 20 years on from the seminal record, ‘Open Door, Losoul delivers, just like we knew he would. Followed by Norm Talley’s interpretation on the B2. The Detroit Legend and Tsuba, Third Ear recording artist rounds off the 12’’ nicely. Leaving a little something for all discerning dancefloors.
