Remember when you were a little kid and Santa Claus was still a living, breathing member of your household? In the wee hours of Christmas morning, he would come by and drop off a little present through a chimney and you wouldn’t have a clue as to what it is. Then, like a mind reader, you opened up the elegantly wrapped gift and Santa gave you anything and everything you wanted.
Winter and Christmas metaphors don’t make sense during the summer; you’re right. But, every time we get a new guest mix to show you guys, I get a little giddy inside like it’s the holidays.
Guest mix #26 takes us over to Paris with the funky house duo Rituel, who have just released their new EP “Deux”. Made up of Christophe Monier (The Micronauts) and Thomas Regnault (Dew Town Mayor), this team of seasoned veterans to electronic music gave us something we all really needed: a new taste of disco and house. Starting us off with ‘Trust Your Enemies’; a smooth, beautiful and haunting house track from the beautiful Brazilian artist Joyce Muniz, we’re thrown smack deep into the heart of it with Clivilles & Cole’s ‘A Deeper Love’. Maceo Plex & Jon Dasilva make an appearance with ‘Love Somebody Else’ and we groove our way to Audiojack’s remix of We Love’s ‘End Of The Night’. Rituel’s own ‘Nirvana Dance’ from their EP Deux will have you bouncing uncontrollably and we’ll even get a bit of Duke Dumont and Justin Jay in the mix.
Unreasonably groovy, Rituel supplied us with a straight 1:16:00 minutes of feel-good house music. Don’t be surprised if you have a a vision in your head of Wanderlust, the hottest Parisian Club on the market right now. A Metropolitan Jolt of Love From Rituel is filled with excerpts from their set there, and can’t you just feel it? Damn, I wish I was there right now….
Be sure to stay up to date with Rituel; check out their dates below and stay tuned for the official remixes of their EP from Shadow Dancer, The Penelopes, Donovans, and Kött later this summer. They’ve also got two exciting videos coming for ‘Nirvana Dance’ and ‘Club Zanzibar‘. Seasoned house music at it’s best, here’s some of the groove made just to satisfy your taste buds.
