Eelke Keijn’s new track Rampestamper has been doing the rounds recently and I must admit I think the original mix is ok but nothing great. The Guy J remix however is brimming with quality but the soundcloud player below doesn’t do it much justice. It must be hard for labels and producers to put out samples of their work as they can’t always give the full picture. The various synth stabs and melodic layers haven’t come out too well on soundcloud and three minutes of a seven minute track that progresses really well from beginning to end you would think this track is pretty bland when it is not. It is definitely worth hearing a high quality full version so buy it and stick it on a decent set up.
It’s time to welcome Rotterdam’s super-talented Eelke Kleijn to the Lost & Found family with a highly anticipated, exceptional debut release – “Rampestamper”. From the brooding, hypnotic intro onwards, this beauty flows smoothly into an ever blossoming, rising, euphoric journey. Restrained and subtle, yet intensely emotional and supremely accomplished, there can be no doubt that Eelke is a master of his craft, a true modern day composer.
The mix compilation of the summer for many people has undoubtedly been Guy J’s debut “Balance” (EQ) album, a truly uplifting and original listening experience that has gained critical praise of the highest order around world.
But, never one to rest on his laurels, Guy’s exceptional productions and remixes keep on coming. His recent “Seven”/”Milestone” (LF009) release has been a fixture at the top end of Beatport Techno Chart and his dynamic remix of “Rampestamper” is sure to follow suit. Guy J’s work is always touched with a magic that few can rival and this remix gradually turns up the pressure until, yet again, emotion is literally pouring out of the speakers.
Lost & Found is steadily building a catalogue of releases that are uniquely joyous, uplifting, intelligent and beautiful. Guy J and the artists he features alongside his own productions, are exploring the psyche of electronic dance music, asking questions and tasting possibilities, forging ahead into the future. This is a label that everyone should, most definitely, always keep on their music radar.
