Eddie Bitar has had a ‘singularly’ eventful time of late! ‘Metal Mouth’ & ‘Meloque’ opened his 2014 case-file before, mid-summer, Christina Novelli lent her vocal kiss to the July release of ‘Start Again’. He’s also been on hand to club-up SHato & Paul Rockseek’s ‘Chasing Aeroplanes’ and mere weeks after ‘Chemical Spill’s download store clean up, the Lebanese born/Canadian-based tunesmith’s been at it again.
In even better news yet, his latest outing - through the ever-reliable VANDIT Records - comes in not one but two floor-dicing variants. With ‘Follow Me’ & ‘Liberty’, the studio-soul doubles down and from up his sleeve conjures another pair of aces.
All drum dominion, ‘Follow Me’ beats a whip-quick path to club floors. Hearty kicks, nagging-ly catchy sub-melodies and visceral lines of 303 energy all race through its production arteries. Further in, siren-call harmonies (ones that’ll goose a bump or hundred!) and its “Follow Me” vocal have Eddie putting the squeeze on the drop. Extracting exquisite levels of tension come its apex, he unleashes them all in a final seismic rush.
It’s leaner, meaner studio cousin, ‘Liberty’ shares degrees of ‘Follow Me’s digital DNA… Plenty of audible squelch, breathily echoed female FX and acidic frisson - its snare-rolling thrills set the track on the rise. Break-side, through elegant piano notes, and latterly round-housing break-beats & stabby, hardboiled tech-trance lines, he delivers its neuron-bombing conclusion.
As one of the most cutting-edge and enduringly innovative labels of the electronic music generation, VANDIT Records stays true to its philosophy ‘No Art Without Artists’. At the start of the 2000s VANDIT made immediate waves releasing a string of now established club classics like Nu-NRG’s ‘Dreamland’, The Thrillseekers’ ‘Synaesthesia’ and Jose Amnesia’s ‘The Eternal’ to name just a few. With an artist talent pool of established names, such as Judge Jules, Alex M.O.R.P.H and founder Paul van Dyk himself as well as lots of gifted younger blood names they keep on bringing high-quality electronic music into the scene.
