Casomat is a new Berlin-based label, founded by atight-knit group of electronic music lovers & scene stalwarts and headed by DJ/producer Schtu. The idea behind the label is to showcase up & coming talent and help them gain the recognition deserved by additionally bringing in established and proven remixers to feature on the releases.
The first release is by Schtu himself and features two original tracks as well as remixes by Murat Uncuoglu (Innervisions, Exit Strategy, Sum Over Histories, Isolate) and Simao (Fryhide, Become One, Blaufield).
The style of the EP lies over towards the housier end of the fairly broad ‘melodic house & techno spectrum, with Schtu showcasing his love of analog synths and live drums combined with meticulous programming and clever arrangement. Murat Uncuoglu, coming off the back of a highly acclaimed EP on Frankey & Sandrino’s ‘Sum OverHistories’, takes Siberian Express a notch deeper with some serious sound-design wizardry and a frankly outrageous bassline.
Portuguese-born, London-based Simao, signed toHOSH’s ‘fryhide’ label, reworks Clarinet Jam into dark & hard-hitting peak-time club track, with a hypnotic and infectious groove sporadically giving way to huge sweeps and massive impacts
Release Date: 30/07/2021
