NYC's rapidly rising Stranjjur Imprint has been holding this EP in their vault for quite awhile, awaiting the right moment when they felt it would get the attention it deserves; and that moment has arrived; as this EP is following H.O.S.H. & HearThuG's 'Technicolour' -- a release some have dubbed as "one of 2012's best" (Sound Effect Magazine)
The less than one-year-old imprint's young and gifted artist, Josh Kleyton put together a masterpiece in 'Night and Day' , which was the first demo the young label received that prompted an immediate signing. "it was a no-brainer, and we hope the world will agree." says Stranjjur label head, Kev Obrien.
With the original mix of "Night and Day" being driven by a tough and driving groove, while managing to stay emotive and heart-clenching simultaneously, its more a "chic techno" style song, as Josh so eloquently puts it himself.
The label says "when remixer selection time arrives; for such a special song; a truly creative label should provide a wide variety of styles -- we don't do formulaic releases here at Stranjjur; we wish to remain diverse in every way possible.. and the 3 remixes in addition to the variety of sounds we focus on each release, should hopefully show that intent clearly. We ain't no one-trick ponies. "
With that said, the release certainly does provide a varied range of styles, each unique and intentionally far from the same stuff the other labels seem to be stuck on lately.
Stranjjur-regulars, Lula Circus delivered an amazing, house-focused remix that builds layer upon layer and gives the song a strong modern touch.
Freerange and Room with a View artist Andreas Saag takes things precisely where we knew he would, providing a deep, hypnotic and nearly "progressive" sounding perspective.
And of course, since label heads Kev Obrien and Chris Luzz loved it so much.. their mix under their Manhattan Projject guise provides yet another variation, leaning toward a bass heavy, bristol-style sound that gets people moving every time!
Last but not least: Josh's own "nothing changes" caps the EP off in a BIG way -- have a listen and you'll hear for yourself!
