Between The Lines (Bonus Edition) – Out: 25/02/13
Defected Store http://tinyurl.com/ag5nglw
Defected continue to spark the interest of the underground (and beyond) with the March release of a Bonus Edition of Nick Curly’s ‘Between The Lines’ LP that comes bundled with remixes from Dennis Ferrer, Mr Fingers, Yoruba Soul, Guti and more.
Original released on Curly’s own Cecille imprint in March 2012, ‘Between the Lines’ was the culmination of a long journey into house that saw the German DJ/Producer go from bright promise to fully fledged international elite in just a few years. Careful stewardship of his 8-Bit and Cecille imprints, impeccable DJ sets and must have productions made Curly the prime exponent of the ‘Mannheim Sound’ but with ‘Between The Lines’, we saw a producer that is so much more than a specific house movement.
Eschewing sterile, computerised aesthetics ‘Between The Lines’ uses live instrumentation, live vocals and real emotion to convey it’s message – that of a walk through Curly’s house and techno influences and passions.
It’s with Curly’s influences in mind that the Defected crew, who jumped at the chance to re-release ‘Between The Lines’ after admiring the project throughout 2012, began to compile remixes for this Bonus Edition release. Bone-fide legends Mr Fingers and Osunlade (Yoruba Soul) and contemporary maestros Glimpse, Guti, Uner, Kollektiv Turmstrasse and H2 all provide versions that weave into the fabric of the original material. Nick Curly’s ‘Between The Lines’ (Bonus Edition) is a natural extension from the already impressive original release and makes for a standout snapshot of not only Nick Curly’s best work, but of house music’s brightest and best.
