Fur Coat - Numbers EP (CRM169)

Fur Coat return to Crosstown Rebels - the label that launched and empowered them to grow into the major techno force we know today - with their 'Numbers EP', featuring a remix from US native Vin Sol. This is music that keeps you guessing . initially it appears dark and powerful, and suddenly a sound appears that results in a smile, a warm feeling that only the highest level of production can deliver.

"We are more than happy to release our Numbers EP on Crosstown Rebels. We feel it's a pretty complete release, that has a dancefloor oriented track (Twenty Eight), a more melodic and trippier side (Twenty Six) and a amazing Techno Rework of (Twenty Eight) by Vin Sol!"

Fur Coat's schedule is unrelenting. The last couple of months involving a standout set @ DGTL Festival, reelasing on Watergate Records, remixing Nicole Moudaber & Skin on Mood Records, combined with numerous festival appearances over the summer. Resident of the popular night club Club Lonely in San Francisco, CA, Vin Sol, founded an imprint with the same title earlier this year . A self confessed lover of the drum machine and regurlarly collaborating with Matrixxman. Sol has previously released on Soo Wavey, Clone Jack For Daze and Delft among others.

Serge Devant - This Moment (CRM168)

The magic of music is how it can enchant you after just moments of listening. As the summer draws to an end Serge Devant returns once more to Damian Lazarus's Crosstown Rebels with a release that does just that. Creating two original tracks and bringing Dinky and NU onboard for remixes, we are reminded of his prominent position within Dance Music.

"It's taken some time for this moment to see the light of day...nearly year and half, but it's probably the most anticipated record yet. Ever since Damian put it on his Essential Mix a year ago, every other day someone would ask when it's out. Well the wait is finally over and the moment is here. Enjoy!" Serge Devant.

Opening up the EP with "This Moment", Devant has created a track that implores the listener to stop and take in all the vibrations, effects and melodies. This is a piece of music that intricately weaves together a hefty bass, curious sounds and an effective hom. Pay close attention to 'In Time' and you will be absorbed once more in an enchanting world where all you can do is follow the rhythm of the drums. Devant continues to tirelessly build on his status with releases on Emerald City, Rebellion and Knee Deep In Sound whilst also covering the globe with his touring schedule.

Dinky adds her signature vocals, synths and an incredibly pleasing warmth to her remix of 'This Moment'. German DJ and producer NU also rises to the remix duty as here he creates an almost unrecognizable version of 'This Moment', but one that fits perfectly, as images of heady Bedouin nights are conjured and dance before your eyes. An affiliate of Acid Pauli, NU will once more return to Crosstown Rebels next year when the pivotal 'Man O To' is re-released.
