Blueday Stereo - Forever EP

It’s another smooth yet explosive release for Claude Monnet’s SSOH imprint, this time in the shape of Blueday Stereo’s lush extravaganza Forever. The French/Belgian duo, comprising Dagui Rodann and Timothy Milton, last graced SSOH with “Eternal Love”. Now they return, fully exploiting the sultry vocals of Jocelyn Mathieu to provide a devastating slice of dreamy soulful house that at times is deliciously reminiscent of that classic garage flavour. It's a beautiful house production with flavours of US Garage, remixes come from Claude Monnet, Francesco Tarantini, DJ Spinna Galactic, Rodann, Deep Hustler, DJ Mute and Alex Finkin. The track will be released on Traxsource on June 22nd and on Beatport and all other download stores on July 6th.

Blueday Stereo - Forever EP

“Forever”’s Original Mix effortlessly flexes piano, strings and dancing funk flutes across Jocelyn Mathieu’s silk-like vocal arrangement, while the Francesco Tarantini Remix / Claude Monnet Reshape weighs in deep and downright dirty from the start. Unleashing spoken sample to begin with, then adding huge funky basslines, popping drum rhythms and low-down, rolling percussion elements, the pair strip it down then build it up to devastating effect.

DJ Spinna Galactic adds in beautiful muted brass sections to his re-lick, while Dagui Rodann shirks off his Blueday Stereo pose to issue an almost Moby-esque mix, bringing out the piano section, adding in dreamy synths and strings and pushing the more dramatic elements of the Original for more of a big room feel. The Deep Hustler’s Classic Remix flows back to the sounds of US Garage, gently pulsating, warm, driving rhythms building through to a stunning organ breakdown; they return with DJ Mute on official Dub duty, losing the vocals slightly, indulging in chunky, funky piano chords to create the rhythm and pace, unleashing anthemic synths across the top and working their way towards a truly heady drop. Rounding things off, Alex Finkin gives possibly the most energetic, uplifting cut in the package, dishing up a liquid piano house edit perfectly poised for those main rooms, hands in the air moments.

For your information, SSOH is a label owned by Parisian DJ/Producer Claude Monnet, designed to push the boundaries of house and underground music through innovative releases, and the highly successful Back 2 Fundamentals projects and podcast. Claude Monnet also runs the Analog imprint, dedicated to providing main room monsters to the world at large.
