Full Support : Release Date 17th December 2013
Tom Conrad & Andre Bonsor feat. Mr V & Miss Patty : Sign Of The Times
2013 – Adaptation Music
Adaptation Music’s Tom Conrad and Andre Bonsor from Schmoov! team up with top New York vocal duo Mr V and Miss Patty for their first single release on Adaptation Music entitled ‘Sign of The Times’, backed up with superb remixes from Reelsoul and Masahiro Suzuki.
Tom and Andre have previously done several remixes for Adaptation Music and now team up once again for the first of several forthcoming projects this winter. The last couple of years has seen the duo remix for various labels as well as releasing EPs and singles with legendary U.S west coast label Seasons Recordings and premier European label Bonzai Music. Both have already released individual projects on Adaptation, Tom with ‘Vimana’, ‘So Happy’, ‘The One’ & ‘Shine’ and Andre with the fantastic ‘Elements Of Nature EP’.
Mr V a.k.a. Victor Font has been co-owner of U.S label Sole Channel Music alongside Alix Alvarez for the last decade and first shot to prominence with ‘Jus Dance’ on Vega Records after linking up with the legendary Louie Vega of Masters At Work. Several more big hits on Vega Records followed, such as ‘Da Bump’ and ‘Put Your Drink Down’ and later formed part of his successful album ‘Welcome Home’. A man of many talents, Mr V ‘s hip-house vocals are just part of his repertoire, having began as a producer and remixer even before his vocal successes. An extensive back catalogue boasts releases on the likes of Strictly Rhythm, NRK, Soul Heaven, OM Records and many more. His vocal sidekick, Miss Patty has shared in some of Mr V’s biggest releases to date such as ‘Da Bump’ and ‘In Da Club’, both of which were licensed to Defected Records, as well as releasing her own singles on Mr V’s label.
The first remix on the package is a sublime smooth and soulful affair from one of the most in demand producers and remixers in the scene, San Francisco based Reelsoul. His signature sound has seen him remix for the likes of Kenny Dope, Karizma, Quentin Harris and Byron Stingily and this mix exudes the quality you would expect from him.
Remix number two is an amazing Josh Wink-esque tech, acid and deep house fusion mix from Japanese producer Masahiro Suzuki. If you’re of the mindset that all acid laden tracks are too similar then you may have to rethink – miss this remix at your peril!
Nous approchons des fêtes et les promos tombent en masse comme les flocons.
Tom Conrad, le manager du label Adaptation Music, retrouve Andre Bonsor pour un titre aux paroles fortes, magnifiquement rappé par Mr. V.
Miss Patty amène une touche féminine et classieuse sur le refrain. Un titre entre Deep et Hip-House, extrêmement efficace et dansant je trouve…
Le Vocal Mix de Tom & Andre est assez dark et underground, ce qui fait son charme d’ailleurs.
Mais c’est surtout les versions de Reelsoul:star: qui m’ont emballé. Notre ami américain ne cesse d’enrichir son style, avec un mix qui me rappelle les productions de DJ Spinna dans les années 2000.
Des sons triturés, des arpèges au synthé, une profusion de pads… Pure Deep House !
Mention spéciale pour le Reelsoul Keys, un musicappella à mixer sans modération.
Pour info, le package comprend aussi deux mixes Tech-House par Masahiro Suzuki.
