Fresh off the heels of their latest single “Melody In Harmony” for Flamingo Recordings, Holland’s fast ascending Roul and Doors follow-up last months with a sumptuous take on homeland house masters Hardsoul’s “Song For Unity”. Where Rogier and Greg Van Bueren’s original provides an emotive vocal offering catered to the more traditional sects of modern house music, the duo spin their synonymously tropical sound clash to full-effect, utilizing Berget Lewis’s supple top line with their own infectious grooves and tempered ethnic lead play. In a second home run for the Dutch outfit for 2013, Roul and Doors show that house music can still find impeccable stamina away from the peak time gold rush.

Out soon.

Holland’s Roul and Doors follow-up 2012’s “Elements” alongside Franky Rizardo for Revealed Recordings with their first release of 2013 for Flamingo Recordings entitled “Melody in Harmony”. Always found pursuing the trail of tribalesque house with a peak time twist, the duo’s fusion of ethnic grooves and scattered leads pits a harmonious middle-ground between their earlier work for Defected and the big room capabilities now readily available to their experimental sound. With a host of solo and collaborative landmarks already in the pipeline for 2013, Roul and Doors remain an eclectic mark of hope on the Dutch house skyline.

Out today on Beatport.

No strangers to the realms of unconventional club music, Franky Rizardo and Roul and Doors return hand-in-hand for a new release on Revealed Recordings, ‘Elements.’ Showcasing the same, tropically tinted stylings that pervaded their successful ‘Blackout‘ release on Flamingo, the Dutch trio are back to continue their collaborative affair with another fine example of drum-driven House music. Without folding to the more stereotypical regions associated with their homeland, the track’s infectious rhythmic progressions make for a worthy debut on the record label of Hardwell.

But in a turn for the heavier-set realms of Dance music, Hardwell and Dannic are on hand with a solid counterpart B-side in the form of a remix of grinding chord play and hands-in-the-air moments throughout.

Hardwell & Dannic remix:

In a return to remix duties, label head honcho turned DJ Mag #6 Hardwell and rising homeland peer Dannic continue their collaborative affair to take the reins of Franky Rizardo and Roul and Doors’ ‘Elements‘ for Hardwell’s own Revealed Recordings.

Digressing from the synth-laden sound that pervaded their remix of Example’s ‘Say Nothing‘, the duo swap the tropically tinted stylings of the original for a take of grinding chord play and hands-in-the-air moments. Despite not quite hitting in on the same inventive notes as the original, Hardwell and Dannic’s remix makes for a solid counterpart that is sure to be music to the ears of those more enthusiastic about the heavier-set realms of Dance music.

Out November 12th.
