Sumsuch - Simpatico feat. Will Brock

Our debut release comes from underground stalwart Sumsuch, whose previous releases on Urban Torque, Apollo & Seven Music have found favour with deep-thinking music lovers across the globe.

The title track 'Simpatico' features vocals from multi-instrumentalist and Philadelphia soul-man Will Brock, adding a seductive warmth to Sumsuch's typically emotive & atmospheric musical backdrop.

The first remix in the package comes from US techno powerhouse and self confessed ‘reclusive perfectionist’, Myles SergĂ©. His take on the original can only be described as a mournful and tender slice of techno, twinned with off-kilter, driving percussion which creates a beguiling groove.

Next up Orlando native and production hero Q Burns Abstract Message lends his own special touch to Simpatico, complete with rolling drums and a dubby bassline. Treading the fine line between "eclectic experimenter and populist ass-shaker", Q BAM supplies a vintage reworking which defies genre tags. All we can tell you is that it's very, very good.

A final track from Sumsuch completes the package, full of emotional strings, moving basslines and just the right amount of acid. This instrumental track sees Sumsuch at his cinematic best, as he recreates a journey across Philadelphia on the scenic road known as 'Kelly Drive'.

The Philly connection throughout 'Simpatico' is no coincidence. As Sumsuch himself puts it: "Every artist from Philadelphia I've worked with over the years has brought a level of talent, soul, inspiration and magic to each project which I have simply not experienced in any other city on Earth. In Will Brock, I have found yet another Philadelphia collaborator to stretch and challenge me artistically. So this record is humbly dedicated to the City of Brotherly Love. There truly is something in the water!"

Simpatico is out now on Beatport, iTunes, Traxsource & Juno Download.
