Serge Devant & Damiano feat. Camille Safiya – Thinking Of You EP

Following monumental releases on both Rebellion and Crosstown Rebels, Serge Devant is back onboard the label to deliver one of his best to date. The immensely sensual Thinking Of You sees him team up once again with Damiano and Camille Safiya with invigorating remixes from heavy-weights Reboot and Art Department.

Serge Devant has been turning heads since the seminal Fearing Love feat. Camille Safiya dropped in 2015 on Emerald City, picking up the Best Music Video award at the 2016 Hollywood Independent Reel Film Festival. Serge reveals “it was so nice to have the same company back in the studio to work on more magic!” Thinking Of You breaths the air of summer with its blissfully smooth chords and deep hypnotic tones. He explains “this record took some time to finish; we recorded so many good vocal bits, it made it difficult to choose what to keep.” Serge also provides an electrifying Floor Cut for those later hours.

Frankfurt’s Reboot brings his flavour to the release with intricate percussion and deep underlying pads. Growing up in Sven Vath’s Omen Club, the talented musician now spearheads the ‘new sound of Frankfurt’ and has released on a wealth of labels like Conaisseur, Supplement Facts, Combi Int, Moon Harbour, Cadenza and Get Physical.

Welcomed back onto Crosstown Rebels, No.19 boss Jonny White aka Art Department delivers a raw, techno cut in his Modular Perspective remix, complemented by his Jaded Perspective mix which packs more swing but holds onto techno energy for the dancefloor. Jonny has seen almost unparalleled success in the world of dance music and continues to be at the forefront of the industry with a huge focus on his record labels and his in-demand label showcases that take the name of his vinyl only label, Social Experiment.

Release Date: 23/06/2017, Label: Crosstown Rebels

Serge Devant – This Moment EP

The magic of music is how it can enchant you after just moments of listening. As the Summer draws to an end Serge Devant returns once more to Damian Lazarus’s Crosstown Rebels with a release that does just that. Creating two original tracks and bringing Dinky and NU onboard for remixes, we are reminded of his prominent position within dance music.

“It’s taken some time for this moment to see the light of day..nearly year and half, but it’s probably the most anticipated record yet. Ever since Damian put it on his Essential Mix a year ago, every other day someone would ask when it’s out. Well the wait is finally over and the moment is here. Enjoy!” Serge Devant

Opening up the EP with ‘This Moment’, Devant has created a track that implores the listener to stop and take in all the vibrations, effects and melodies. This is a piece of music that intricately weaves together a hefty bass, curious sounds and an addictive horn. Pay close attention to ‘In Time’ and you will be absorbed once more in an enchanting world where all you can do is follow the rhythm of the drums. Devant continues to tirelessly build on his status with releases on Emerald City, Rebellion and Knee Deep In Sound whilst also covering the globe with his touring schedule.

Dinky adds her signature vocals, synths and an incredibly pleasing warmth to her remix of ‘This Moment’. German DJ and producer NU also rises to the remix duty as here he creates an almost unrecognisable version of ‘This Moment’, but one that fits perfectly, as images of heady Bedouin nights are conjured and dance before your eyes. An affiliate of Acid Pauli, NU will once more return to Crosstown next year when the pivotal ‘Man O To’ is re-released.
