What do the Human League, Dolly Parton, Lindstrom & the Phenomenal Handclap Band all have in common.......? Ilya Santana has touched them all with his magical remix fingers. Ilya has also had a slew of fine releases on other labels such as like Balihu, Tirk, Permanent Vacation, Airtight, Hooj Choons, Gomma & Eskimo. So it is with great pleasure that we welcome Ilya to Nang Towers. First up as a taster on an upcoming album is the single "Running To Your Love".
Ilya lists some of his greatest influences as Alan Parsons, Vangelis & Giorgio Moroder and those fine meld of influences burst through in this vocal disco house stomper. Walking bass lines, early 80s disco and hi-energy grooves and a snappy vocals are the order of the day. Its big, its catchy.
Remix Packages R Us here at Nang and we unleash the crew on the original with aplomb. Madrid producer and Rare Wiri label head Rayko is first to the synths. His mix enhances the groove with pulsating big synth bass, shimmering keys and effects. Floor led all the way. Next is a detour to the colder regions of Russia with Sportloto. His "Juno revenge Remix" slows down the groove and adds layers of picked electric guitar and moonwashed keys. One for those early evening sunset moments.
Italian label mate Brioski is next up on remix duties. He adds his raw analog disco grooves, darting arpegiated lines and trademark tunings to the song to fine effect. UK based Robot Needs Oil are last up on the remix tip with their 4/4 disco stomper. For those who prefer things less vocal we also include 3 instrumental versions in the package.
Stay tuned for Ilya album on Nang later in the year.
