youANDme - PPPPP - The Remixes, Part 1 Cinthie, Ian Pooley, Diva, Yotam Avni (RCM018)
Last summer saw youANDme deliver his “Diva 2022” mix of "PPPPP" a track that would ignite dancefloors across Ibiza and become one of the smashes of the summer in the process.
The label was always certain the record was a hit and the response that followed justified their faith. The track went on to be championed across the globe by the likes of Paco Osuna, Ame, Dixon, Matthias Tanzman and Pete Tong (BBC Radio 1) leaving a succession of dancefloors demolished in its wake. Fast forward to 2023 and the Cult brings in a smorgasbord of house music’s finest to breathe fresh verve into what is rapidly becoming a future house classic.
Early support from Roger Sanchez, Kiki, WhoMadeWho, Mano Le Tough, Toni Rios, Transmoderna, Luke Slater, Steve Bug, John Digweed, dOP, Funk D'Void, Dapayk Solo, Paul Loraine, Carl Craig, BOg, Danny Tenaglia, Chris Fortier, DJ Boris, Echonomist, Madben, Michel de Hey, Audiofly, Joseph Capriati, Funkerman, Robosonic, Cinthie, Marco Faraone, Anthony Pappa, and more.
First, comes the unmistakable dancefloor call of the “Diva” mix, with its fierce retro vocal and contagiously looping house sound. Its raw undeniable groove shook dancefloors for a reason the first time around and here it is to do the damage all over again. Next, house music legend Ian Pooley hops on board to serve up a delicious slab of fat analogue deepness. A rework for the real house heads, it drenches the original vocals in reverb and creates a tough sub-laden groove bound to work deeper floors. House music’s producer of the moment Cinthie delivers a red-hot reinterpretation that ups the bpm count and zones in on the drums. The Berlin-based producer creates a colossal house-breaks crossover that is bound to tear apart dancefloors. Reese subs fill out the lows while organs deliver the original rave flavour and take the track into orbit. Finally, Tel Aviv’s Yotam Avni turns out a remix that delivers shades of the pure old-school house with piano stabs sitting alongside deep chords before he puts his tougher-edged modern techno stamp onto it.
Rhythm Cult is on a roll at the moment returning with one of the most hyped tracks of 2022. This package delivers the goods with fresh remixes for 2023 from some of the best in the industry who are now added to the label's impressive roster.
