I Kissed The Sun

Shabu Recordings

Released: 14th January 2013 | 7 track leftfield/idm ep

I Kissed the Sun is Norwell's debut EP. Previously known as Elbow Room, this Budapest-based producer is one of the men behind the fledgling label Farbwechsel and is one of the newest additions to Shabu Recordings' roster. I Kissed the Sun is a 7 tracks EP inspired by 70s Kosmiche Musik, applied to modern elements of electronic music.

While Bloom's path is pointing towards a challenged dancefloor during peak time, songs like I Kissed the Sun, Lost and Leaving and Untitled float in that limbo where the boundaries of listening music, intro-of-a- set and clearly-this-will-bring-arms-in-the-air music are blurry.

For this occasion, Shabu hosts the works of three new artists for the remixes. Bloom gets a Groj (a.k.a. the French/Montrealer producer behind many hits in the past 2 years) and a S Olbricht (a.k.a. the other man behind Farbwechsel) treatment. While S Olbricht goes down the path of a deeper retake on Bloom reminiscent of Detroit Techno, Groj goes into a 10 minutes synth-fest strolling into the Kosmiche and Shoegaze territories. Finally, Imre Kiss re-imagines Lost and Leaving into a daydreaming-friendly, almost-rock-but-not-totally adventure where we saw a couple of pink clouds the last time we went there.
