Diynamic is a label that’s never been known for standing still. It perhaps goes some way to explaining why Solomun, H.O.S.H & co. continue to stay so relevant in the house domain, as unlike a slew of their unnamed contemporaries, the Hamburg label continues to take chances with its sound and explores new territory. And since they burst on to the scene over half a decade ago now with their much in vogue house music, the label’s since gone through a host of sound transformations. Their latest endeavor is the Four to the Floor EP, the first in a collection of – you guessed it – four similarly inclined offerings. And suffice to say, the Diyanmic crew have rolled another proverbial 6 here.
All of this, it should be noted, is achieved in spite of the fact that the new names on board here are far from household names. Further proof of the label’s shrewd A&Ring (it’s worth noting at this juncture that they’ve introduced us to everyone from Ost & Kjex to David August to Adriatique over the past few years), the first outing comes from Night Talk, who delve up the sublime ‘’Mind Games’’. A zippy encounter that’s full of zest and all-round good time vibes, it’s sure to provide a worthy moment regardless of what dancefloor it’s allowed to spread its wings on.
Roberto Calzetta and Twin Soul then lock horns for ‘’Bliss’’, which is a more dramatic sounding effort than what’s arrived before. Full of clever perc and delicate strings, it stands out from the pack thanks to a melodic sheen that’s hard not to fall for. Another emerging talent, Rafael Cerato, leaps up for the third of the offerings. The gorgeous strings help lend this one a really epic vibe, and of all those on show here, we reckon it’s Cerato whose names rings out the loudest. Top draw stuff. Finally, we’re greeted to the sounds of Esteble, who brings the house down with aplomb on the curtain closer, ‘’Marlborough Sounds’’. Experimental and almost soundtrack-sounding in parts, it’s a melancholy end to an altogether thrilling package. Diynamic, evidently, are definitely moving in the right direction as they gear up for 2015.
