At long last the début release from new London-based vinyl-only label Sharingtones, conceived by a Parisian and a Brusseleer sharing a desire to endorse house music with soul and personality. White Ribbon showcases three tracks, each delivering something unique but all sharing an identity that resonates perfectly with the Sharingtones philosophy. Isherwood’s ‘Wurlitzer & Celeste’ (A1) represents the murkier, more soporific face of the record- heavy and dubby, quarried from somewhere aqueous and humid. Flipping the record lifts you from the abyss into a more jovial plane- Lenta’s ‘Can’t Forget’ (B1) is melodic and soothing, its rhythmic template shaped by fragile clapping tones and deft synthetic insignia, the absence of an obvious kick drum underpinning the track’s clean, subtle ambiance. The smokey strings and piano break in ‘What Goes On’ (B2) by Shcaa keeps things restrained and approachable, yet beneath its congenial surface lies an efficient body-mover, the kick drum re-introduced to maximum effect making this an early hours dancefloor essential. With the pressing limited to only 300 heavyweight copies, complemented by a beautiful sleeve painting by artist Sarah Selander Patrignani, this is an unmissable release that will officially mark the arrival of a boutique London label that will undoubtedly go from strength-to-strength.

We are very proud to present you one of our very favorite rising artist for our second episode; Dasha Redkina delivers a beautiful vinyl selection straight from Arma17, Moscow. She represents perfectly this new vibe that brought freshness in the edm scene associating all we seek for, from very old school deep house to the most avant-gardist microhouse. Arma17 has been one the most inspiring scene for us and we’re glad to catch some essence of that mysterious Russian wave. As well as being truly devoted to collecting rare black disks she also brings forward a visual identity forging the style of Yokjik ConCon among others (http://vredkinahda.wordpress.com/). True precursor who opens dance music to new horizons, Dasha has been a real inspiration for us to explore this plurality of dimensions existing in house music but yet lacking of a true ambassador in the scene.
