German Brigante & Yamil – Basari EP (Sol Selectas)
Release Date: Friday 27 May 2022
Sabo’s record label Sol Selectas presents a collaborative release by Spanish artists German Brigante and Yamil. Along with the three originals, the EP also features remixes by Amine K, and Mr. ID.
German Brigante is an eclectic producer whose music has has featured on labels such as Get Physical and Bar 25. He has previously contributed to one of Sol Selectas’ Summer Sol compilations and this is his first full EP on the imprint.
Yamil is already a member of the Sol Selectas family who has appeared on a number of the label’s releases as both a remixer and original artist. He has also worked with labels ranging from Super Flu’s Monaberry to Pipe & Pochet.
The original tracks are organic house with vibrant percussion and traditional Moroccan instruments layered with sequenced beats. Spain and Morocco are neighbours so share similar cultures, and German Brigante plus Yamil are both influenced by the traditional Gnawa music of Morocco.
Amine K and Mr. ID are two of Morocco’s best known electronic music artists, so who better to rework tracks inspired by the traditional music of their homeland.
Amine K has previously featured on Sol Selectas when collaborating on music with Sabo, but he has also provided solo tracks, and worked with other labels including Tiefschwarz’s Souvenir Music and Dave Seaman’s Selador.
Mr. ID drops his debut on Sol Selectas after previously working with the likes of Kerri Chandler’s Kaoz Theory, and he brings his skilled musicianship and afro rhythms to this EP.
“Kibo” features the incredible vocals and guembri playing of Mehdi Nassouli, and it has a unique organic sound fuelled by the tones of a lush bassline. Its sun-drenched melody synth and dramatic percussion fills give it a great upbeat groove. The remix by Mr. ID, takes the song even deeper into soulful, deep house territory, a style Mr. ID is well-known for.
“Basari” is the EP’s title track, and its funky bassline and spine-tingling melodies are intertwined with tribal percussion fills, plus mythical vocal chants. Amine K adds his peak time twist to the tune by lifting the tempo and thickening the groove with some additional drums that are perfect for the dance floor.
The final tune “Gnawa” reinterprets a classic Berber tune with a solid low-slung groove, deep bass, ceremonial chants, and flutters of guitar that build captivating suspense.
The cover art by Helia Jamali is a Saharan dreamscape with “Lucy” wandering through dimensions.
Mitch Oliver – Sea To Sky EP (Kindisch Records)
Montrealer Mitch Oliver returns to Kindisch with a pair of hypnotic house rollers.

Mitch opens up with vocalist MYRE for ‘Alpine’, a richly detailed track with subtle acoustic guitar licks and buttery smooth vocals. The spacious, patient groove builds with deft percussive details that heighten the alluring atmosphere of this classy late night gem.
Second track ‘Mylus’ is a collaboration with musician Nic Falardeau. It is another brilliantly organic track with seductive wood-block hits over frictionless deep house drums. Serene string sounds, yawning chords and soft shakers all pepper the perfect groove as you slowly but surely fall under its majestic and romantic spell.
These are two tender house tracks stuffed with heartfelt warmth.
