[Audio] Edwin Van Cleef’s ‘Choral’

 

edwin-van-cleef

Original releases from Edwin Van Cleef are too few and far between for our linking so were pretty excited at the news of a brand new three track EP. We’ve followed Cleef on his dancefloor journey through Dreamwave, Nu-Disco and House over the fast few years; each time, as his sound evolves, he takes a piece of the past with him to create a funky melting pot of nostalgia and upfront sounds. The new EP is titled Choral; here’s the lead track.

Cleef serves up a classic Progressive House jam with a hypnotic twist on Choral. Playing with heavily effected vocals he created an edgy atmosphere that nicely contrasts a euphoric and arpeggio laden floorfiller. This is real sunrise stuff as Cleef builds up waves of razor sharp synths toward a humungous breakdown and a build with a payoff. watch the hands go in the air for the finale.

[Audio] Edwin Van Cleef reMixes Kindred Spirits’ ‘Folies D’antan’

 

Kindred Spirits

A brand new reMix from the man Edwin Van Cleef. This one slipped out quite quietly earlier this month as the new single, on which the reMix featured, from Kindred Spirits dropped. Out on Green Martin, the single is called Folies D’anta; which according to Google Translate means ‘On the old follies’, we’re sure something gets lost in context there. Check it out.

Cleef brings it, in warm House style, here. Easing us in with some deep chords and a pounding kick, Cleef slowly serves up a spacious atmosphere before injecting a growling bass into the gradually evolving proceedings. Before things kick off we’re taken through a haunting, ringing, breakdown that snare rolls it’s way into the tracks euphoric and captivating final length. A tune to get lost in.

[Download] Edwin Van Cleef reMixes Metronomy’s ‘I’m Aquarius’

 

metronomy

Back in November Devon Indie-ElectroPoppers Metronomy released the first single from their just then announced forthcoming new album Love Letters. I’m Aquarius was a slinky slice of SynthPop with a hint of psychedelia, and the track has now been given a huge dancefloor workout by Mr. Edwin Van Cleef. Check it out.

Cleef brings pulsating, bass heavy, groove to the tune. Embracing the original’s psychedelics and 60s shoop-shoop flavour, this reMix wraps all that up in a pounding bassline and some skippy beats. The vocals take second place to big synth stabs and pin-prick arpeggios here, weaving in and out of Cleef’s remix almost as another instrument, but it’s that big bass and drums that make this one so compelling.

Metronomy – I’m Aquarius (Edwin Van Cleef reMix)

Metronomy’s I’m Aquarius is out now, Love Letters is released 10th March 2014.

[Download] Edwin Van Cleef’s ‘Two As One’

 

edwin-van-cleef

New tunes from Leeds based producer Edwin Van Cleef are becoming more few and far between recently. We’d like to take this opportunity to lodge a formal complaint at this turn of events. Don’t worry yourself too much though, as we do have a shiny new tune from the man today. Two As One is already getting spins from the likes of Grum, Goldroom and Justin Faust and we’d expect to see in cropping up in a whole load of mixtapes in the coming weeks.

What you have here is a lush, involving slice of synthy Disco-House. It’s a bit Tropical, and a bit ‘waves crashing in’, but also very British. So we guess, rather than having a beach vibe, it’s more of a sea-side vibe, but like a sea-side in space, as it’s quite cosmic too with big snyth sweeps flying all over the shop. It’s a classy summer House track loaded with breezy keys and relaxed basslines. Add a couple of haunting vocal samples to the mix, alongside some hay piano and you’ve got the perfect recipe for late night summer dancing. It’s just a pity it’s the middle of winter.

Edwin Van Cleef reMixes The Knocks

the knocks

It’s like The Knocks fortnight! Not only have they recently dropped their amazing reMix of Haim’s Forever and the release of their The Feeling EP, complete with a multitude of reMixes. One of the one we were most looking forward to was the work of Edwin Van Cleef, who whips up the title track into a deep and funky retro House track.

If you like you’re basslines Chicago flavoured and your dace tracks loaded with catchy refrains then you are in luck right here. Cleef delivers the EPs standout mix. Using the original’s anthemic vocal to it’s sing-a-long fullest this reMix pushes a severe level of energy and feel-good part vibes. It’s just a pity that the weather is starting to turn nasty, and this reMix is a month or so too late, to fully appreciate it’s summery charms.
