The inspiring DJ/producer, RISE founder and integral Watergate resident has carefully selected and curated a vibrant house mix that touches all corners of the genre and refreshingly showcases artists outside the normal European hotspots. The second sampler opens with Super Flu’s ‘Effreticon’, a track with the right amount of energy and tweaked-out synth touches to keep your listeners guessing. Pablo Fierro shares his ‘Reincarnation’, filled to the brim with tropical flavours. Floyd Lavine features again, following up his collaboration with Hyenah on the first V.A sampler. This time the Cape Town-born, Berlin-based artist has re-worked Kerri Chandler’s ‘Think of Something’ into a tribal monster, after the original first featured on Watergate Records back in 2014. Lyon artist and former RISE guest Manoo’s ‘De’s Lullaby’ is awash in a river of silky synths and uplifting rhythms.
