Derun – La Sombra del Viento EP (Sol Selectas)
Release Date: Friday 24 December 2021
Sabo’s imprint Sol Selectas closes out 2021 with a stunning three-track release from label favourites Derun who are known globally for their tribal rhythms and enchanting melodies.
Derun are a duo from Istanbul, Turkey who in addition to their music on Sol Selectas, have released tracks and remixes on other labels including Bar 25 Music, Cosmic Awakenings, Pipe & Pochet and Akbal Music.
Taking influence from their local heritage, Derun’s music has vibrant rhythms and middle eastern melodies that fuse modern day electronic sound with traditional instruments.
All three of the organic house tracks are true to the trademark Sol Selectas style, and the release has been lovingly curated by Sabo.
“La Sombra del Viento” which translates to “The Shadow of the Wind” has mesmerising vocals and flamenco style guitar layered over the flowing rhythms of sequenced percussion. The track’s concept is to be an expression of our lifetime experiences. Flowing through the winds of time, along the way we leave behind little pieces of ourselves, and our shadows mark the trail of which those shards are scattered.
Track two “Ven Hermosa” translates to “Come Beautiful One” and its Arabic flutes intertwine with violins and dramatic percussion that tells a quirky love story. Based on the concept of a woman who’s being courted by two men that both promise exquisite wedding gifts if she accepts their marriage proposal. The music builds with a vigorous energy as the men try to outdo one another, but then ends abruptly, as eventually she laughs, and decides to reject them both.
Closing the EP is “Descalzo” which translates to “Barefoot” and it’s a collaboration with ARKADYAN. Sombre trumpets swing through the nimble guitar chords that dance and intermingle with the congas and other percussive textures. Strongly influenced by flamenco, it’s a modern take on a classic kind of dance music.
The artwork by Helia Jamali personifies the shadow of the wind into a magnificent wild horse, running through the universe and around the Sun.
Kennedy – Anymore (Oh So Coy Recordings)
Kennedy turns in our final release for 2021.

KiloWatts & PointBender – Western Wolf Remixes (Harmonious Discord)
Last summer Harmonious Discord released a rare vinyl feature highlighting two long-time label creators, KiloWatts and PointBender. The EP featured deep, cerebral journeys like “Circling the Crown”, pulsating nighttime anthems like “Western Wolf’, and low-swung cross-over classics like “Swangert.” For this release, the two producers enlisted the brainpower of close friends, returning artists, and consistent innovators to help celebrate 20 years of the label.
Included in this set is the return of house music legend Demarkus Lewis. Demarkus remixed Morgan Page on Harmonious Discord in 2004 and his applied skills to this project produced two fantastic flavors of “Western Wolf,” ripe with bumping movement. Behind The Sky boss and genre-bending force, Bluetech applies his deep knowledge and context to deliver a beautifully evolving masterpiece. Berlin’s Noah Pred explores innovative angles of bio-mechanical feedback with a beautifully growing, often organic feeling re-imagining.
The project starts off with a musically elevated remix of “Swangert”. Bluetech sets free the dithered musical undertones with modulated synth patterns that dance romantically by and through each other. The vocal treatment enters cosmic terrain while the subtle bass jamming keeps a funk focus flowing. Next up is the Deez Puppy Chow Mix of “Western Wolf” which tames the elements of the original into a body-moving selection prime for rocking big-sound speakers. The remix reaches peak-time tension with the introduction of expertly crafted acid lines. The following Deez Acid Free Remix delivers the same energy without the frontal acid line, but more emphasis on rising effects patterns that maintain the level of insanity. Our final guide into the deep crevices of a-cult warehouse worship is the Acid Reign Remix by Noah Pred. Pred doesn’t hesitate to get into melodically complex corners from the start and leaves plenty of room for sonic expansion as his synthesizer elements embody a mind of their own. A true embodiment of Harmonious Discord’s 20-year celebration is perfectly captured in this high-powered collection.
