Timo Garcia Rmx) -> http://btprt.dj/1n8SyRt iTunes -> https://itun.es/i6gX48M Nolan returns to Connaisseur this ‘month’ with renowned actor Idris Elba on vocals for ‘Children of House’, Of Norway and Timo Garcia on remix duty. ‘Children of House’ is Nolan’s second release with the German imprint Connaisseur following his ‘Ghetto Bicep’ EP that saw big support from the likes of Wolf + Lamb, Droog & Maceo Plex back in 2012. The Brighton based producer re-joins an impressive roster of artists such as Kollektiv Turnstrasse, Ripperton, Afrilounge and Chymera with this release. Blurring the lines between disco and house Nolan’s productions have previously found homes at notable labels such as OFF Recordings, Get Physical, Nervous Records and Audiojack’s imprint, Gruuv. Nolan and iconic actor Idris Elba join forces for a collaborative single here via Connaiseur Recordings, Elba’s unmistakeable voice is layered up with an infectious house groove, intricately crafted with the production skills and discerning house music knowledge of Nolan and Idris. Opener ‘Children of House’ is a warm down tempo bit of house music with whirring synths, mechanical clamours and processed vocal. Elba’s verbal provisions are systematically distorted and deliver an expressive message that disparages the new musical movement of EDM. For ‘Bass Drop’ Nolan’s disco edge really shines through with a playful whacked out house rhythm that really gets in your bones. On remix duty Of Norway deliver distorted stabs of sub bass and tumbling keynotes in a slightly pacier version (the Scandinavian duo will also release their debut LP ‘Accretion’ on Connaisseur on May 30th). Timo Garcia completely reimagines things with a jolting low down house cut, with skipping drums and multiple claps making for a particularly kinetic final product. Sjulle Anker provides the sublime artwork for the vinyl.
