Swedish protagonist of the French Electro sound Jonas Rathsman joins American label French Express to release a new original track titled ‘Bringing You Down’ free of charge.
Dealing a rather refined hand of deep and reverberated House grooves, ‘Bringing You Down’ hits the balance between vintage and modern with insatiable energy. Already boasting the seal of approval from Pete Tong, ‘Bringing You Down’ sees Rathsman drive floating leads and vintage Electronica hallmarks into one of the more intimate club endeavors to emerge thus far this year.
At a time where vintage synths and distant disco vibes are a hot digression from the world of Dance music, Swedish producer Jonas Rathsman continues his ascent into the realms of genre defiance with illustrious new single ‘Just You’ for French Express.
As officially premiered in his Essential Mix alongside Perseus on BBC Radio 1 last week, the warm grooves and infectious top line of ‘Just You’ make for a fresh middle-ground between the oversubscribed avenues of Electronica and Indie with succinct force.
Out soon on French Express.
German House outfit Tagteam Terror, better known as just TTT, takes on Swedish protagonist of French electronica Jonas Rathsman to add some oomph to his acclaimed ‘Tobago’ single. Built around the haunting rerunning vocal samples, the German duo swap the vintage instrumental of the original for an upbeat House remodel of infectious proportions. In hopes of further cleansing the scene with strong emotional value and essential rhythmic energy, Tagteam Terror’s take on ‘Tobago’ marks yet another refreshing escape from the peak time overhaul that has ensued throughout the year.
Swedish protagonist of the French Electro sound Jonas Rathsman joins American label French Express to celebrate a year of endless love for the sound of vintage European club music. Jokingly based around the love story of Rathsman and his MircoKorg, the French producer drives a solid stream of floating leads and vintage Electronica hallmarks into one of the more intimate club endeavors to emerge this summer. As the summer invites yet more organically tuned surges of creativity from the European club movement, the ever-expanding Rathsman makes a deep and meaningful gesture to modern Electronica with this gem of a freebie for down-time of 2012.
