Petit Batou – Fireworks EP [Stamp Records]
Parisian label Stamp Records announces “Fireworks EP” to drop soon exclusively on vinyl with label-head Baptiste Saint-James aka Petit Batou behind two fresh cuts alongside local producers Direkt and Dragutesku on remix duties. The record explores deep minimalistic dimensions, full of meandering narratives and smooth tempos, perfect for laid-back selections or long afterhours. The imprint is internationally known since 2015, having an extended digital and vinyl catalogue that includes productions signed by ROI, Dominic Vadim, Amin Ravelle, Silat Beksi, Octave, Alan Castro, Bassam, Triptil, Andu Simion, Zenk and Ernesto Ferreyra, among others.
Aside from the works dispatched through his imprint, Petit Batou also collaborated with Minim.All, Tzinah, CELO Rec, Kanja Records, Soundterrasse, Totoyov and Capodopere. For this EP he invites Direkt and Dragutesku to express their own vision on the two original tracks, the result being a must-have record that will arrive in a limited number of copies.
Both “Fireworks” and “Foot Tapping” reveal a warm minimalistic vibe, designed with circular, enveloping basslines, melodic organic textures and steady-paced drumming patterns set at around 126/127 bpm. All the sounds flow with a colourful progression creating vivid harmonies while the breakdowns add a perfect balance to the narratives. Direkt‘s remix provides an extra techy feeling as the tempo is lowered a bit and glitched layers are elegantly included in the story while Dragutesku focuses on rearranging the background with twisted effects and transforms the breaks into spacious breathing moments. A highly recommended 12″ right here for collectors and selectors alike!
