A brazen complex 4 tracker to launch Ibadan Records into 2014.
The title track ‘Black Jerusalem’, a collaboration between Jerome Sydenham and Ibadan Records latest talent dujour Sally, launches Ibadan Records into year 19 of existence. This sophisticated Tech-House exposition is a broiling example of the beats, rhythms and pace to be expected from this dynamic duo.
‘Mainline’ is the second installment of Ibadan Records ‘Editopia’ series (with Carl Craig’s ‘Angel’ being the first). On this edit extravaganza Jerome Sydenham teams up with Rebecca Rotlicht for dissection duties. The result being a dark dubbed out Techno-vigorated all purpose refurbishment of Robag Wruhme’s remix of Brendon Moeller’s classic ‘Mainline’.
DJ Karizma’s remix of DJ Spen’s ‘Heavenly’ gets an exuberant touch by Jerome Sydenham for the ‘Editopia’ cause. The result is a classic definition of modern brazen Deep House.
‘X-Ova’ brings back together the team of Ibadan Records artist Aschka and Jerome Sydenham. The track is built around a sample of the classic ‘Minus’ by Robert Hood. No time is wasted infusing the rhythmic spirits of Detroit with groovy electronica overtone resulting in a spirited Deep-Techno-House experience. Fresh for 2014!
