Eric Shans - In Memoriam

Brooklyn producer Eric Shans returns to Colour and Pitch with his new EP 'In Memoriam', comprising three typically sweeping, melodic cuts. 

 Eric's great ability to communicate emotion through his music is displayed in full effect on title track 'In Memoriam', which blends mournful guitar licks with cinematic chords and a hypnotic, floaty groove. 

'Spectres' shows a slighter darker, more insistent edge, with tougher drums and delightfully lo-fi, glassy pads. Finally, 'Tomorrow Will Never Come' reminds us to concentrate on the here and now, a message delivered with a distinct nod to classic synth-pop from yesteryear.

Tracklist:
1. In Memoriam
2. Spectres
3. Tomorrow Will Never Come

Available March 12th 2021 on all digital stores and streaming services.

Glass Slipper - Brighter Days

Austin duo Glass Slipper kick the New Year off with their timely cover of an early 90's House classic: Cajmere & Dajae's 'Brighter Days'. 

 Brad Eller's crystal clear production sound and Lisa Cork-Twiss's distinctive, soulful vocal tones are bolstered by live piano from Ezel Feliz on Glass Slipper's version of 'Brighter Days', which doesn't try to outdo or mimic the iconic original, instead paying loving tribute to this life-changing song. 

Let's be honest, we all need Brighter Days to dream of right now!

DJ Joma - Rhia (Beauty) feat. Moon Aton


Talented Belfast DJ Joma makes his production debut on Colour and Pitch with melodic deep house cut 'Rhia', featuring spoken word vocals from German artist Moon Aton. 

Host of the brilliant "Thru The Looking Glass" podcast, DJ Joma also regularly plays on Data Transmissions Radio, Ibiza Global Radio and Pure Ibiza Radio. Before the pandemic he was a regular fixture on terraces and venues in Eastern Europe, where his melodic, spine-tingling selections brought a distinctly Balearic vibe to the terraces and beaches of the Adriatic coast. 

His first ever production, 'Rhia' caught our ears thanks to its dreamy, wistful atmosphere, perfectly reflected by Moon Aton's beautiful musings on Johann Wolfgang von Goethe's words: "the soul that sees beauty may sometimes walk alone." Second track 'Sasha' opens with mournful piano chords, before gradually unfolding into something subtly uplifting. An instrumental version of 'Rhia' is also included in the package for good measure. 

There will be more to come from Joma on Colour and Pitch this year, so standby for more melodic, evocative goodness in the very near future.

Tim Tonal - Switchback Remixed


Tim Tonal returns to Colour and Pitch with even more remixes of his gorgeous underground hit 'Switchback', featuring Finest Wear, Andrew Duke and Eric Shans.

Tim harks back to his UK rave roots with 'Switchback III', a delightfully retro version of the track, featuring uplifting synth strings, a euphoric piano breakdown and a dance-floor ready arrangement straight from the 90s. 

Colour and Pitch stalwart Finest Wear turns in a typically classy, deep reworking with bouncy drums and tight stabs. 

Canadian Andrew Duke steers 'Switchback' into darker, headier territory, with his atmospheric and heavy-grooving take on the track. 

Finally, Brooklyn's Eric Shans serves up a deep, melodic and ever-so-slightly proggy version, typical of the 3Bridge Records sound.

Tibor Dragan - Follow the Path

Tibor Dragan - Follow the Path
Hungarian talent Tibor Dragan returns to Colour and Pitch with a sublime new cut entitled 'Follow The Path', accompanied by a collaborative remix from David Marston & Sumsuch. 

 Filled with his trademark shimmering chords and warm, languid production touches, 'Follow The Path' perfectly encapsulates the reason that Tibor Dragan is quickly gaining prominence in the worlds of Deep House and melodic electronica. 

 Fresh from stellar releases on BBE Music and his own Kindness of Bearer Recordings, Jamaican musician David Marston joins forces with Colour and Pitch founder Sumsuch for a very special remix. 

Recorded just before COVID lockdown in Spring 2020, Marston and Sumsuch's rework of 'Follow The Path' began life as an evening spent jamming together on guitar and keys over a few of Dragan's original parts, resulting in an organic and spine tingling set opener with a distinctly live feel.

With recent releases on Harmonious Discord, Subplot Recordings and Denied Music, we are delighted to welcome Josiah Fontenot back to Colour and Pitch with two gorgeous original tracks.

Sumsuch slows the pace for his melodic deep house version, while Canadian electronic doyen Andrew Duke takes 'Drawing Straws' into darker, hypnotic waters. Otherwise known as Wolf Hackmine, Colour and Pitch regular Steve 'Griffo' Griffiths dons his Second City Firsts guise for a timeless, bass-driven dub workout.

Sumsuch feat. Will Brock - She Walks on Water

Known to soul music fans by the alias Mega Jawns, Philly soul man Will Brock and UK producer Sumsuch reunite for haunting, melodic Deep House cut 'She Walks On Water'.

Produced remotely during the 2020 COVID19 outbreak, 'She Walks One Water' started life with Sumsuch jamming on an analogue drum machine, recorded live, then enhanced with atmospheric, liquid synths and a warm bass-line.

The work-in-progress was immediately sent to Will Brock, who added spine-tingling live piano and smooth, subtle vocals. The whole thing came together within 24 hours, and that immediacy and organic feel comes across loud and clear in this understated masterpiece.

 Under the 'Mega Jawns' moniker, Will Brock and Sumsuch have released two albums on legendary British label BBE Music. Their last outing on Colour and Pitch, sun-drenched terrace gem 'All Along', struck a chord with fans across the globe and made its way onto compilations issued by Sony and Clubstar.
