KERRI CHANDLER - Heaven Ep - Madhouse Records
Kerri Chandler offers up a remix EP from Bristol based producers Behling & Simpson this August, entitled ‘Heaven’ and set to drop via Kerri’s very own Madhouse Records imprint.
Madhouse Records boss Kerri Chandler needs no introduction having been one of the most prominent names in underground house music for over two decades now. While rising talents Behling & Simpson’s collective output has been championed by the likes of Claude von Stroke, Derrick Carter, Ralph Lawson, Modeselektor and many more over the pairs 100+ previous releases between them (under various guises), this stands as testament to their undeniable ability to craft forward-thinking electronic music.
First up on the release we have ‘Heaven’ featuring Christopher McCray on vocal duties, Behling & Simpson’s prevalent low-slung, dropped tempo rhythms take the lead, alongside hypnotic low-end tones, while the duo capture Chandler’s warm musicality with style utilizing the original’s bright chord progressions and smooth vocal licks, creating an intricate, intelligent slice of house.
‘Peace Of My Mind’ follows on the flip side, a track originally released on Madhouse in 2011, though returning to the label in 2014 with an intriguing reshape courtesy of the Behling & Simpson, again taking on the pair’s niche slo-mo feel, setting the tone and radiantly showcasing why their sound stands tall above many of their contemporaries in such an effortlessly cool way.
Kerri Chandler’s ‘Heaven’ (Behling & Simpson Remixes) is out 28th July on Beatport and 10th August general release.
