AM 009 – From Midnight to Six vol. 2


For their 9th release on Around Midnight and the second volume of their Midnight to Six compilation, French duo Chambord opted for a friendly gathering between established and up and coming artists : 6 tracks, one per hour from midnight to 6am, meant to be the latest development of a full nocturnal exploration.


The party starts with two artists from the Parisian scene, surprisingly playing out of their field. While Ramyen, an unmissable figure of French deep house parties and decks, showers us with a delightful “Beach House”, where sunny and exotic children vocals coupled with organic woody touches contrast with in-depth percussions for an outdoor glimpse at nature, the newcomer Philou puts a moonlit touch of acid on her first release, “Raposa Rave”, where her South American inspirations meet a punchy bassline that elegantly takes you further into the depths of the night.


In contrast, “Falling” by Emir Sagiroglu & Tal Barahya, rising Turkish DJs and producers, takes us back to the radiant shores of their homeland with a carefully balanced mix of delicate piano touches and scratchy trendy beats on which ethereal vocals curl as gently as the waves on the beach at sunset.

A close friend and supporter of Chambord, Creange’s well named “Coming Home” signs his second appearance on Around Midnight, where the mastered house/funk inspired bassline and vocals provide us with the perfect drive to rush to the dancefloor.

In the same 90s vibe, the Australian newcomers of Number Games demonstrate with “Support Life” that the best days of house music may be ahead of us, with a refreshing downtempo approach that can fit both indoor and outdoor venues.

And last but not least, a charming  intake on the brilliant AM002 release, “Surya Rising” by Ilich Mujica, here remixed by a talented duo from the South of France, MurisaVar, who give to the track a more laid back color thanks to shifted rhythms and playful loops : that joyful and powerful approach made them win the first AM remix contest last September.


We are looking forward to partying through the night with Around Midnight & Friends on February, 16th!
