Sound Vessel Records is a label out of San Diego, California, but with a global scope. Their new release features Marvin La Rose, an artist from the Netherlands, and remixers hailing from Romania, Spain, Hungary, and America. Titled “26,” the single is a deep, swirling, progressive effort from Marvin, operating under the nom de plume La Rose. Wavering synths create an immersive experience through a heady atmosphere, only interrupted by brooding vocal chops.
Starting off the remixes, Addex is a Bucharest-based artist of many aliases for sounds ranging from relaxing downtempo lounge to minimalistic tech house, delivering a back-to-basics deep house remix for this single. Spaniard Ivan Garci enters straight into his rework with a massive sub kick, indicative of things to come as he basses up the track while maintaining the moody background elements of the original. Hungarian artists SpecDub and D.M.P, or Laszlo Szunyogh and Reisz Róbert respectively, both employ minimal tech touches, but with SpecDub offering a more driving, punchy kick-propelled remix while D.M.P touches on a more laid-back and scattered groove. Finally, Brooklyn’s Jaymz Nylon repurposes “26” in his renowned Afrotech style, really letting the distorted low end synth shine within the playful patter of shakers and wooden percussive instruments that substitute for claps. La Rose and company have delivered a journey of spacey, tech- accented house for Sound Vessel.
