Respected Israeli producer Chaim debuts on his Blue Shadow imprint with two charismatic cuts, including remixes from The Organism, Zombies in Miami and Kino Todo.
Appearing on labels like BPitch, Disco Halal, Supplement Facts and Visionquest, Chaim’s emotively organic sound, often influenced by his Israeli homeland, is like no other. Arguably his biggest release to date, ‘Blue Shadow’ was released on Guy Gerber’s Rumors in 2014. Chaim now finally releases on his Tel Aviv-based imprint, which shares the same name, following appearances from Echonomist, Jinga, Kino Todo, and label co-founder Jenia Tarsol.
‘Pow Pow’ intoxicates with its utterly hypnotic and charming lead synth that is accompanied by warm, cavernous drums, before ‘The Piano One’ takes things darker with ghoulish, filtered vocals that build upon the loose groove-led percussion. Disco Halal’s The Organism flips ‘Pow Pow’ into a chugging, strobe-lit disco cut with glistening melodies, which we feature for you today as a premiere. Acclaimed Running Back duo Zombies in Miami work eerie synths into ‘Pow Pow’ introducing an intriguing new atmosphere to the original. Finally, Blue Shadow’s fast-rising producer Kino Todo remixes ‘The Piano One’ and layers in fat, bouncy drums and trippy effects to make for some dazzling disco-tech with a charmingly off-kilter vibe.
