Jay West & Manuel Sahagun feat. Cody ChesnuTT drop ‘Sense Of You’ on Klangkultur Schallplatten with Okain and Dirk Hermann & Andreas Mueller remixes in tow.
The Cologne-based label founded by Dirk Hermann and Andreas Mueller drops its sixth release this July. Jay West & Manuel Sahagun reunite for their third release following ‘Fool Me’ on Off Recordings and ‘Got Me’ on Electronique Digital back in 2013.
Between them West & Sahagun have stacked up an impressive back-catalogue of work on labels including Neurotraxx, Drop Music, Moodmusic and Salted Music. ‘Sense Of You’ is a smooth and melodic affair, lined with silky pads, soft strings, shuffling percussion and an ethereal vox from Cody ChesnuTT.
With 15 years in the game and releases on Amam, Tsuba, VIVa Music and BPitch Control, French native Okain delivers a punchy re-imagining. It’s an eccentric house cut built around stripped back rhythms, rolling bass lines and an elemental vocal.
Schallplatten head honchos Dirk and Andreas step up next for remix duty and cut things back, introducing a fresh piano arrangement alongside emphasised strings the duo draw out those understated crowning moments to deliver a smooth slow-lung jam.
‘The Right Thing To Do’ is the final offering on the EP and certainly doesn’t disappoint with a meaty groove mapped over kinetic drum patterns, dancing bass and an airy spoken word vocal.
