With an eight track LP for Plasmapool under his belt, Houserecordings regular Hypster brings aboard UK vocalist Clover Ray for his latest work, taking on Steve Lade and Xspectiv’s ‘Our World Is Here’. Where last year’s original has proven a landmark release for the two young Finns and label alike, Ibiza-based Hypster’s take fails to conform to the normal hallmarks of a remix by laying his focus on the addition of a top line. Apart from highlighting the track’s melodic appeal, the addition of Clover Ray’s frisky voice makes for a well-deserved extended shelf life just in time for the Summer season.
Born and bred on the White Isle of Ibiza, Spanish boy wonder Hypster has had little excuse not to set the record straight with his studio work. Leaving the comfort zone of Plasmapool after a host of solid releases, the Ibizan producer is joined by Niqi for a funky release on sublabel Houserecordings. Fusing intrinsically House orientated grooves with the grittier sound of his previous Electro leaning exploits, ‘Let The Beat Drop’ proves the perfect amalgamation of soulful vocal stylings and distinct universal energy. Set against the backdrop of the impending summer season, Hypster and Niqi’s infectious collaborative effort is sure to move a significant number of bodies both on the white isle and throughout the European scene.
