exclusive premiere: Friz07 – Chipping [Empore]
German record label Empore Music announces Friz07‘s debut material White Nut Trees EP to arrive soon in digital format, featuring two original cuts and two remixes by Carsten Jost and Cristoph Vogel. Linking the gap between deep house and rominimal while using classic house elements and pad-driven automation in his very own way, Friz07 delivers an engaging and introspective sound, perfect for laid-back selections and smooth afterparty sessions.
Founded in 2014 and located in Northern Germany, Empore‘s beginnings can be traced back to Luna Club which was not only the birthplace of the project itself but also the only spot where it was possible to experience club culture in Kiel. Here, house and techno music brought together a group of artists and friends who started organising events and releasing both vinyl and digital materials from artists all over the world, contributing to the development of the underground community with enthusiasm and a distinct perspective on modern electronic music. This EP makes no exception to the rule. Let’s dive in!
“The originals for the EP were both created during the first corona lockdown. Basically, I just showed a good friend a few tricks in Ableton to pass the time. In the studio, I opened the projects by accident and recreated and recorded many sounds with my equipment. The EP feels musically much freer than other projects of mine without forgetting my beloved basics. One of these basics Carsten Jost used identically in his remix, which I feel very comfortable with.”Friz07
Designed with warm background textures and pads, carefully crafted broken-beat sequences and spacious breakdowns in focus, both the title track and our featured composition explore deep dimensions and emotions, subtly mixed with progressive and IDM influences. Berlin-based Carsten Jost of Dial Rec. drops a wobbling reinterpretation of the original while keeping to the core layers, elegantly twisting and turning the knobs in order to deliver a dubby and uplifting version. Christoph Vogel closes the EP with a breakbeat-infused edit of our exclusive premiere, evoking old-school rhythms and sounds. A highly recommended release right here for selectors and collectors alike!
