Premiere: Listen to Native Origin’s “Calvin Klein” from “28 Nights” EP

In today’s oversaturated dance music market, if you catch yourself chasing trends then you’ve already lost. Native Origin won’t be pigeonholing himself anytime soon, though. The Denver DJ and producer has incorporated a multitude of sounds into his debut EP, 28 Nights, whose unique four-on-the-floor style sounds like nothing else out there.

House, techno, trance, trap and breakbeat have each found themselves in Native Origin’s repertoire at one time or another. When his production expertise reached the professional level he asked himself, “Why not mix them all together?” The five singles he turned out within the 28 days that followed are as danceable as they are cerebral; they’re an exercise in breaking all the rules while maintaining an accessible appeal and cutting a record that makes a singular, memorable musical statement.

The first song on the EP is “Get It Get It,” which opens up with sublimely textured bass kicks before a chorus of sounds on the high end weave their way into the arrangement. The song goes through a series of well-executed changes whose influences include G house and Orlando breaks.

Calvin Klein” follows, painted from a shade of the electronic music spectrum that falls somewhere between tech house and minimal techno. A syncopated drum pattern perfectly segues the first part of the song into the next, at which point a resonant, throbbing bass line underscores the echoing male vocal refrain on the top line.

Los Angeles production duo Freddy Be and Savi Leon join forces for their debut on Ki Creighton’s Under No Illusion label.

The four-track Benevolence EP includes a mesmerizing new single from the two veteran artists, as well as three distinct remixes from the likes of West Coast house legend Doc Martin, East Coast producer Joeski and label-boss Ki Creighton.

The original itself is a dreamy piece that is bound to capture dance floors for the rest of summer and beyond. Already armed with the support of industry titans the likes of Sasha, Groove Armada, Josh Butler, Huxley, Marques Wyatt, Technasia, Joris Voorn and Dennis Ferrer, “Benevolence” is beautifully and seductive, and immediately transports listeners to the familiar dance floors of Ibiza. Perfect to set the mood or to end a set in alluring style, the track is built upon a tribal rhythm and captivating vocal sample, as well as entrancing piano notes throughout.

The remixes are all individual renditions worthy of play in their own right. Joeski’s re-work is a deeper and darker affair filled with new instrumentation that makes this stand out from the original. Ki Creighton’s version is tech-house to its core, carried forward by a sub baseline and groovy perc loops. Rounding of the EP is Doc Martin and his characteristic sound, a remix filled with acid stabs and analogue baselines.

Premiere: Listen to the Sandy Turnbull Remix of Skydoll’s “Feel You” ft Timotha Lanae

‘Feel You’ is a slice of contemporary dance floor soul from the brand new Minneapolis trio, Skydoll.  Featuring the sensual vocal talents of UK Soul Chart topper Timotha Lanae (‘Red’ / ‘Rewind’ albums), Skydoll has delivered an absolutely stunning debut where Timotha’s emotive vocals glide over a backdrop of lush sweeping strings, warm Rhodes and bubbling electronica. UK producer Sandy Turnbull turns out a bewitchingly seductive Deep House rendition, underpinned by a rousing melancholic groove and Scandinavia’s Opolopo delivers a classy sublime outing, laced with uber cool jazz tones set to a platter of abstract beats.

Skydoll first encountered Timotha Lanae at the famed, First Avenue in Minneapolis (Purple Rain), where she was performing with legendary Soul singer Alexander O’Neal. Having been captivated by Timotha’s performance, Skydoll spent the next year attempting to track her down to no avail. Whilst in the studio with world renowned bassist Billy Peterson, he invited Skydoll to a club to check out a singer he was working with. Low and behold it was Timotha Lanae, the very singer Skydoll had been searching for! ‘Feel You’ was the result of this fated meeting.

MacGregor Teigen, Brandon Dalida and Paul Ryan are Skydoll.  All hailing from Minneapolis, Skydoll’s roots span the musical spectrum: 1970’s Disco & Soul, Kraftwerk, Giorgio Moroder  Nile Rodgers, The Minneapolis Sound (Prince, Alexander O’Neal, Andre Cymone, Morris Day) and many more. Skydoll have lived in many different places around the world, from Lancashire, Berlin, Amsterdam, Detroit, New York and even Honolulu, which has inspired and brought extra colour to their sound.

He was named as one of Complex’s magazine’s “Top 10 Producers To Watch This Year” and has received support from the entire span of dance music’s premier talent including The Chainsmokers, Justin Martin, Felix Cartel, Malaa, Danny Howard, SNBRN, Dr. Fresch, Hotel Garuda, Bijou, Gigamesh, and many others.
