Cologne based Klangkultur Schallplatten team up with Chris James for the third vinyl release on the label. Dirk Hermann & Andreas Mueller’s Klangkultur Schallplatten label has been gaining a raft of support in 2012 with two extremely well-received singles from Darius Syrossian and DJ W!ld getting love from DJs as diverse as Adam Beyer, DJ Sneak, Huxley and Maya Jane Coles. Now the Cologne based imprint is teaming up with DJ/Producer Chris James.
Chris James is based in Birmingham, England and has over the last few years built a reputation as both a DJ, producer and label owner. Playing at key venues such as Ministry of Sound, Turnmills, Empire and Monastery he has also travelled the globe guesting in Ibiza and Australia. His records have been released by labels such as Potty Mouth, Anabatic and Artform as well as on his own Dubnoir music imprint. This latest release sees Chris deliver ‘Kind Of Heavy’, a slice of deep house that fuses a bumping old school bassline, rich melodic parts and heavily effected soulful female vocals. The original version is followed by a remix from OFF Recordings head honcho Andre Crom who delivers a mix that retains all the character of the original whilst bringing his own style to bear. To close the package Dale Howard takes the reigns and turns in a mix that takes things down a ‘90s garage/house influenced route with its shuffling drum programming, percussive organ riff and high strings. It's out November 30.
