The French Avotre Imprint is hitting the shelves with a new release from Darlyn Vlys called ‘Floor 122’. In addition to the original track, the release includes a Santé & Sidney Charles remix. The original track is a mysterious and dark-sounding track with well-crafted percussion blended with melancholic vocals in the back. The Santé and Sidney Charles remix bursts of energy and is more upfront and perfectly suitable for a relentless old warehouse rave.
Darlyn Vlys studied film in Montpellier in France where he found himself mesmerized by some amazing electronic musicians he was introduced to by this vibrant city. After he moved to Valencia, Spain, he created his own style of sensual and captivating tech house, tinged with jazzy influences and Latin percussions. His sound quickly got him signed to some of the most influential labels on the dance music scene. Get Physical, Upon You, Suara and Sincopat.
Santé is a busy, renowned, Berlin-residing producer, DJ and originator of the Avotre imprint. Around all those labels popping up all the time, mostly being just virtual phenomenons, the Avotre-cosmos aspires to grow into a distinctly recognizable and even sensible matter of heart. To put it straight: Avotre is concerned about its scene’s well being.
That said, Avotre is not like the common, genre-specific label as we know it all too well, not another Techhouse-imprint that’s dropping hardly distinguishable productions every week. The basic principle coming to effect in this venture would be called ‘laissez-faire’ in its mother tongue. It’s not just House music about to happen here, there are rather all sorts of things about to happen. Be it R’n’B, be it Downbeat, Disco and whatnot. Style wise, Avotre offers a home for everything that represents the different tempers of the contributing producers.
