Johanna Knutsson - Heavy baby EP

With only 3 releases under its belt, Berlin based Klasse Recordings returns to deepen its imprint on the dance music scene. With bassline driven grooves and infectious percussion rhythms at the core of their sound, Klasse's fourth release and debut single from Johanna Knutsson is in no way inconsistent. Entitled „Heavy baby“ this EP has been released as digital but also vinyl mid-March.

Digital EP

Johanna Knutsson caught the music bug in 2008, she promptly moved to Berlin from her native Sweden, buying her very own set of Technics and a xone42 mixer along the way. Finding her inspiration at the plethora of Berlin clubs, in particular Berghain, it wasn't long before Johanna was well and truly entrenched in the city's vast and varied music scene. Her love of electronic music led to a job writing for Pulse radio online magazine, interviewing artists such as Prosumer, Kasper Bjorke, Ripperton, Sasse and most recently, Session Victim.

The title track, ‘Heavy Baby’ is a house music mover with its foundations built on soulful vocals stabs, grooving percussion and a thick-bodied bassline that’s sure to move every dance floor it has the pleasure of meeting. The track gives a nod to its roots whilst maintaining its sights firmly on the future, classic 909 hats clash with a distorted looping string of hats, resulting in a groove you cannot help but move to.

Swedish act Minilogue step up and turn in a remix that stretches and contorts the original to a full 15 minutes, twisting with the analogue melodies, hypnotic textures and intricate progressions that have come to identify Minilogue’s sound.

Brand new Klasse artist James Creed provides a stunning and impressive debut remix for the label. For sure it is the best remix of the EP. His melodic drums and vocal cuts swing with a casual bounce that emphasizes the tracks sometimes melancholic and warm feeling.

Label boss Luca Lozano turns in a slower, pitched down interpretation. The vocals, drenched in reverb and delay playfully interact with a steady groove that bounces along to a satisfying buildup which then drops back to the drugged out, bassy loop that came before it.

A very promising EP, of one of Berlin's many labels that don’t not leave us insensitive. Stay tuned....
