ESSENTIALS - Volume Eight (unmixed)

This is our eighth installment of the Rebirth Essentials compilation series. It includes some of the best Rebirth releases in 2011, a touch from the past and brand new hot material set to be released in 2012 ! The Japanese duo Bocca Grande formed by music producer Trio and former piano teacher Yuka Kobayashi delight us with the amazing Procedere, released here with an exclusive Reprise version. Metro Area's Morgan Geist works the magic building the mix around a part of the piano theme and giving it his trademark production sound !A dedicated and talented dj from Manchester, Lee Spence aka Ellesse, is surely responsible for a future classic here with New York Boy ! The legend Todd Terry is back to form delivering his best remix in years. Building around warm rhodes chord, a strong acid bassline and a Detroit house drum pattern Todd plays a jazzy organ... leading to the momentum when the piano theme unleashes its magic. Italian talent Pirupa is back on Rebirth with Bajka, a unique voice, bubbling, sensual, and soulful, and Gregorythme from Digitaline turns the song in an exceedingly tasteful deep house number, giving it a good dose of class !Originally released in 2010, Luke Solomon and Justin Harris collaboration with the legendary Robert Owens is here reproposed, magic and emotional !Toronto's finest man, James Teej is back on Rebirth with Night Wears Thin', creating highly emotive music that touches people all over the world, in clubs, on the radio, at home, across borders and cultures. Combo debut release on Rebirth, So Real gets a strong update from Londoner Huxley, a proper deep version; raw, emotive and jacking house music at its best ! Silver Team is the collective based in Paris by djs and producers Jef K, Gwen Maze and Alex Murac and 'Heavyweight' is their debut killer cut for Rebirth !Chicago House Music master Tevo Howard is on Rebirth again with the monster track Crazy Love, warm and emotional with a Raw and Hypnotic vibe. Originally Italian but established in Ibiza, Tuccillo has been producing music for the last 15 years ! 'Invisible' reminds of earlier Francois K productions with minimal beats, warm atmosphere and a rolling bassline. Pure Class from one of the electronic music producers of the current underground scene.Slow Hands follows his hot releases on Wolf & Lamb with a very sexy and seductive mid-tempo mix of Spyro Evo by Chromatic Filters, while Manettas Fine Food by Stefano Testa gets a groovy mix from DFAs Jacques Renault. San Francisco's new talent The Beat Broker adds his disco drums, and deep space synth pads to Funk In by Fancybeat. To close this fantastic selection, the useful Deetron Reprise Tool of Taras Van De Voordes classic 1998!
