Applepips have released this genre crossing 12" from 2 very promising producers – Ramadanman and Sven Weisemann. Ramadanman’s profile is rising rapidly, with his Hessle Audio imprint releasing classics such as his own ‘Blimey’, getting big support from Ricardo Villalobos & other house and techno jocks, 12”s for Soul Jazz (check out 'Core' on Soul Jazz) showcasing a unique take on dubstep, garage, 2step and techno. Appleblim has been rinsing ‘Humber’ out for quite some time, its choppy beats and gorgeous phasing synths an instant highlight of his sets…unbeknown to him Ramadanman had been in touch with Berlin based producer Sven
Weisemann about a remix, as Sven’s gorgeous work on top labels Mojuba and Leibe Detail had caught his ear…well – here it is! Andwhat a gem it is too… Humber – Rolling beats compliment the beautifully melodic filtered synths, this has a real 2step / Techno /godknowswhat feel to it! Bumpin’ subs carry it through with some wicked progression going on in the melodies…. Humber (Sven’s Rumber Remix) – It’s a real honour to have Sven Weisemann on Apple Pips, him having created one of our fave house tracks of recent times, ‘Let’s Swing’ on Mojuba…he reshapes Humber beautifully here, resetting it as a dubby yet melodic house track, with depth and soul…Radio & club support coming from Mary Anne Hobbs (Radio 1), Laurent Garnier, Gilles Peterson (Radio 1), Martyn (3024), Rob Da Bank (played it last Sunday on Radio 1) Flying Lotus, Mr Scruff, DJ Flight, Jamie Vex'd, Quarion and more..
