Rivet - Metrist [Kontra Musik 023]

2011 was a very good year for Kontra Musik. Jonsson / Alter's album 'Mod' was one of our favourite albums of the year. As was Mokira's 'Time Axis Manipulation project. Add to that singles from Marcel Dettmann, Kondens and remixes from Redshape, Silent Servant, Echospace, Substance and Move D and you can see why we've rated the Swedish label as one of our best from 2011.

2012 kicks off in the same vein with the first release on the label for Rivet. Gaining critical acclaim for his remix of Kowton he was quickly snapped up by Kontra Musik and put to work. The results are three excellent dancefloor centered tracks, two originals and a remix from Ostgut's Marcel Fengler . 'Metrist' is a chunky groove that combines techno with old school disco vibes over a warbling, distorted bassline. Fengler's interpretation of 'Metrist' makes for one of those late night moments. Synth notes delicately drift over the top of solid 4/4s. Rivet wraps things up with 'Sleepwalker'. Broken beats and ghostly vocals stir up emotions of bliss. Check out the samples below.

The EP will be in the shops at the end of this month. For more info on Kontra Musik, their releases and artists you can check out their Website, Facebook Fan Page or you can follow them on Twitter
