September 16th 2022 (Beatport Exclusive)
September 30th (Worldwide)
Ready Mix Records favorite Khaaron returns to the imprint with a new original track ‘Lum’, our label release number 256.
A hypnotic, mid-tempo, Deep House stepper, ‘Lum’ is simply a DJ’s dream, taking its sweet time to build up from its percussive intro, waiting until a minute and 20 seconds into the journey before taking flight.
And what a flight it is, with an utterly addictive bass-line, atmospheric drones, groove-laden drums, and a breakdown to die for.
Since his early days producing under the monikers Robert R. Hardy and D.M.P., Khaaron has been constantly refining and perfecting his sound. We think you’ll agree that ‘Lum’ is a landmark release for one of the most exciting emerging producers in our little scene.

Soulfeed are the founders of Take Away, but the duo has also worked with other record labels such as Hoomidaas, MBF ltd and Where The Heart Is. They have a deep and atmospheric style that fuses organic sounds with flowing rhythms.

Peter Makto’s remix of Robexa focuses on the synths with the addition of an arpeggio lead and more prominent use of the original’s melody. Soulfeed close out the release with their rework of Faces, which adds uplifting atmosphere and organic percussion sounds.

Double Drop & Xabizo – Bendingayazi (Villahangar Records)
For his new track “Bendingayazi” made in collaboration with the artist Xabizo, great musical promise, which title comes from ‘babalaza’, as the hangovers in Mozambique and South Africa are called, which later became ‘Bindigaize’, dizzy – he chose afrobeat sounds, exploring new boundaries and getting involved.
And he was inspired by “Tenet”, the highly acclaimed film directed by Christopher Nolan: acting in reverse just like in the film where the actions take place backwards in time, he manipulated the sample of song of the soundtrack with the same fascinating inspiration.
Maxi Meraki – Hayibo EP (Villahangar Records)
Enter the world of Belgium’s Maxi Meraki – he is a melodic roller, providing ideal sounds for the deep clubbing community.
Vocals strike out to apply a consistent vibe to the ‘Hayibo’ track. A traveling of synth projections and piano harmonies.
On the other side, ‘Motea’ and ‘Now You Know’ bring melodic drifting, unfolding a low key drama demanding the edge of your seat.
Meraki’s blooming back catalogue received previous support from e.g. Themba, Claptone, Jamie Jones, BLOND:ISH and Pete Tong on BBC1.
