After releasing his debut “Brighter Future” last year, Belgiandj/producer Gratts returns with an EP showcasing his skillcrafting emotive house cuts. Written while stuck in Adelaide in 2020, «Euphoria» was dreamed up during coastal car rides, windowsdown, bumpin’ beats, with added musings by local legend BrianRuiz. When “Méditation Nocturne” kicks off we’re still in the car- this time on a nocturnal meander through the ill-lit Adelaidehills, evoking misty feelings of nostalgia.
On the flipside, DIY Discs’ staple PJ Principle (FKA Peej) out ofNottingham steers “Euphoria” straight into disco heaven with atasty Linn Drum groove, piano and guitar – a cut that wouldn’tsound out of place on a Steely Dan record. Last but not least, NewYork’s Jenifa Mayanja delivers a lush and dreamy rework of“Méditation Nocturne” that’s sure to captivate dancefloors worldwide.
