Luna Records UK · Chris Lattner ‘Memory’ Inc. Justin Drake and Bearweasel Remixes

Luna Records is a new UK based label from respected club promoter/DJ/Producer Paul Bowen, the man behind Middlesbrough’s infamous ‘Riff Raff’ events. The label is set to release music from some pretty well established artists with an emphasis on stripped back chunky house music and in that vein the debut single sees the much hailed German producer Chris Lattner step up get the imprint firing in the right direction.

Lattner has been DJ’ing for the best part of two decades, initially gracing the decks at Hannover techno parties before word of his talent spread, seeing him strike out to play across Germany. He has hosted a radio show for Australia’s Pulse Radio, worked as a booking agent for LessIzMore and has had releases on labels such as Einmaleins Musik and WBA. His passion for electronic music has shone through in everything he has done and led him to produce some great records, to which can now be added the Luna debut ‘Memory’.

This single release kicks off with Lattner’s original of ‘Memory’, a solid tech driven slice of house with heavily effected vocal samples and a simple floor shaking groove. This is understated underground house music at its best, deep chunky and highly effective.

First of the two remixes comes from ex-Peace Division man Justin Drake, who builds on the vibe of the original, thickening out the drums and layering some heavy filters over the synth stabs to great effect. A straightforward and highly effective arrangement provides everything that is needed in this excellent reworking.

Finally we have a remix from Bearweasel, who have been providing choice cuts in house music over the last year via labels such as Tsuba, Supernature, Bloop and Murmur. For their ‘Lazy dub’ they take things back to basics and turn in a slab of deep and dubby house with an emphasis on razor sharp percussion and earth moving bass.

This is a superb debut from a label that is sure to become a major fixture in 2010.
Chris Lattner’s ‘Memory’ is released on Luna Records in December 2009.

Get that old Gadgets vibe back again but with a San Fran Deep House flare. Favorite mix here is the Justin Drake mix, nice balance of old school synth progressions, I could see Derrick Carter or Mark Farina beating this at 5 AM! 

Stuart Geddes Mulletover / Rekleiner
great mixes but would of been nice to break up the style a little, not much to choose from here.

Patrice Baumel Get Physical / Trapez
i’m missing the special ingredient here…

Dave Ellesmere Microfunk / Intacto / 100% Pure / Remote Area
nice original and phat rmx’s …good rolling basslines and tight solid grooves throughout. thumbs up

Lovin this, Original mix is nice and chunky, warehouse vibes… Drakeys mix is dark n swinging, but it’s Bearweasel mix that is doing it for me, really good hypnotic stuff, great first release guys!

Chi-Thien Nguyen BAALSAAL
all 3 mixes are great! nice work by justin also.. 

Jay Tripwire
Bearweasel lazy dub for me sir..the original doesnt do it for me,and justins mix is good but not really my bag to dj.

Emerson  DJ Emerson / freak waves / micro.fon /
all tracks support!

Rick Grant Sick Rick/Fabric/Beats
something good to say about all the mixes here – which is particularly impressive given the original isn’t exactly teeming with elements in the first place. love the drums on mr lattner’s version and the synth chops on the bearweasel mix but drakey’s version has to take the cake – a real belting slowburner of a rework, so it is. look forward to hearing plenty more from luna

Emerson Todd Dirty Bird
i like the org the most here
