Chontane – Healing EP (Rekids Special Projects, RSPX21)
German artist Chontane joins Rekids Special Projects with a twisted four-track release entitled
Over the last five years the Berlin-based DJ has played many of the capital’s best clubs, including Griessmuehle, ://about blank, Suicide Club, Arena Club, and OHM. However, the last two years have seen Chontane breakthrough as a producer having dropped his debut release on THEM Recordings, followed by a collaboration alongside WERK’s co-founder J. Manuel on the newly launched Magic Power imprint. He now joins Rekids Special Projects succeeding appearances from P.Leone, Shinedoe, Jon Hester, and label boss Radio Slave himself.
Opening the release, ‘Nam’ is built on an intricate rhythm and indistinguishable earworm vocal whilst a variety of tantalising elements ebb and flow from the mix. ‘Leto’ is then a dark and ominous number with an evil vox and delayed effects, before moving onto a percussive and synth-driven uplifting cut entitled ‘Exam’. Finally, ‘Gora’ concludes the release with its syncopated drums, purring bassline and soaring pads.
