- Salomé Le Chat – Cruising On The Playa (S.A.M Remix)
Parisian-born Salomé Le Chat makes a much-anticipated debut on Rebellion with One + One, a beautiful two-track release that features an exquisite remix by one-third of Mandar, S.A.M.
Speaking of the release, Salomé described how “One+One is my first EP, so it’s very special to me. I made ‘Cruising On The Playa’ for my closest girlfriends, to reflect the special moments we’ve spent together. They are my source of inspiration.”
Label-head Damian Lazarus praised the Parisian’s hard-working nature, stating “I have known Salome for around 15 years. In these years she has been extremely patient; watching, learning and crafting her own art of djing. Having now blossomed into a killer dj, I am so proud to release her debut record as a producer. For me it goes to prove the point, that good things come to those that wait.”
Beginning with atmospheric chords and softly warming hats, we are soon hit with a pumping kick as Cruising On The Playa gets underway. A real dancefloor cut, the addictive vocal hook gives way to a subtle build up, before a driving bassline leads the charge deep into 5 AM territory. On the flip side, S.A.M serves up a minimal-leaning remix that showcases the cosmic sound he’s become best-known for, as trippy pads converge on a slinky underlying groove to form a peak-time, up-tempo number that you can’t help but dance to.
Having played alongside the likes of Black Coffee and label-head Damian Lazarus already this year, Salomé Le Chat is no stranger to the electronic music sphere. With a string of standout performances already under her belt, One + One marks her first-ever EP and sets the tone for her much-awaited future releases. Born in Denmark but based in Germany, S.A.M has established himself as a truly respected presence in the house and techno scenes. Heading up three labels in the form of Oscillat Music, Delaphine and Dalia, and making up one-third of house supergroup Mandar, last year saw S.A.M’s Furys Laughter reach the Number One spot on Beatport, a testament to his skill for producing the perfect dance-floor ready cut.
