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
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.

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.

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.

Tim Tonal - Switchback EP

Following up his 2017 'Rhythmic Indulgence' EP, Tim Tonal returns to Colour and Pitch with the stunning 'Switchback' EP, complete with remixes by PJ Principle and Wolf Hackmine.

DJ and producer Tim Barnett, aka Tim Tonal, has a rich history in the UK electronic scene, having released on the iconic DiY Discs both as part of Tonal Fusion and one half of Alpha Dogs. Switchback showcases Tim's impressive production chops with a classy and expertly constructed House groove, carrying just enough dance-floor weight and acid power to nod to his background in the rave scene. A darker, dubbier, stripped down second version, Switchback II, is also included for the late night heads.

Fellow DiY Discs graduate PJ Principle provides Switchback's first remix, imbuing the track with a timeless Deep House vibe and offering up a nimble, airy arrangement, plus sumptuous analogue sounds galore.

Birmingham born Steve 'Griffo' Griffiths returns in his Wolf Hackmine guise, this time channeling his near 30 year love for the 'Wild Pitch' style as championed in the 90's by DJ Pierre and DJ Duke. The 'Tono Salvaje' remix manages to hold the attention of both the feet and the head as it slowly grooves and builds over its epic 11 minute duration.
