Belgian duo Raw District pair up with the formidable Aquarius Heaven for a sophisticated and seductive EP for Crosstown Rebels. "Her Mind" also comes with a blazing Martin Buttrich remix.
"A vocal adds a unique vibe to a production, making it stand out from the crowd" explained Massimo Dacosta (Raw District). "So when it came to doing a follow-up to 'Ragged Star', we tried to challenge ourselves and give our very best. That's why we asked Aquarius Heaven. We're big fan of Brian and excited about the original and amazing work he delivered".
The iconic vocals of Aquarius Heaven sway against the mechanized dub-laden beats of 'Her Mind', forging a glowing fusion of languid harmony. 'Tell No One' is a sonically imposing beast of a track, whilst Martin Buttrich's outstanding remix nests firmly in the heat of the night.
Raw District are the Belgian duo Vernon Bara and Massimo Da Costa, who met in a Mons record shop in 2000, and run the label Homecoming Music. Born in 2013, their music has since been seen on labels such as OM, Brique Rouge, Souvenir , Robsoul, OFF, and now Crosstown Rebels. Vernon Bara is also known as Ultrasone alongside Igor Vicente, the techno project that has released on Hot Creations and Supplement Facts.
Aquarius Heaven, born Brian Brewster, is an ex reggae dancehall and hip-hop singer. He moved to Paris in 2005, where he meet the Parisian electronic music trio dOP and after spending hours in the studio with the three musicians, Brian's musical sound was profoundly changed. We can still hear the colors of the Carribean in his vocals, and his music is unbound by the old rehashed sounds and limitations of the electronic music scene. All of this creates for a very interesting musical ride.
Martin Buttrich's journey into electronic music began in clubs in Berlin and hannver at the dawn of the 90s. His notorious collabs with Timo Maas and Loco Dice have led him to form the infamous label, Desolat, and he still managed to find time to put out a remarkable collection of music.
