Royal Flush QLR011

The original version of 'Need Your Love' from RTJ & Elina made a huge impression in June, finding its way into the DJ bags of a diverse spectrum of artists. The single merged classy subtleness with festival sized sounds and featured a captivating vocal from newcomer Elina. Now, Quartz Lock presents new versions for the mid-summer crowds that offer even more possibilities for this dance floor anthem. Remixes come from a new crop of rising talents including: Wesley Dysart, Eric M., Dub Mechanics, and Kash Trivedi.

Leading things off on the remix EP is Indian producer Kash Trivedi's massive 'Goa Sunset' remix. This track contains all of the magical moments that define a summer time hit and is a must. But as an added bonus, there is also a second remix from Trivedi. This version is much different - with a less intense groove than his previous remix and more of a focus on the ethereal elements of the original version. Los Angeles producer Dub Mechanics tries something completely different on his remix, a chunky peak hour techno dub with electro flourishes. The bass line is choice and the deeper elements scream after hours warehouse party for those who like to takes things a little darker and strip away the vocals. Atlanta producer and Steamtown Records owner Wesley Dysart gives the original a muted electro house rework that also includes a nice balance of pop and psychedelia that is highly original. South African producer Eric M. gets epic on the closer, with a huge sound system, peak hour remix. The vocals are isolated and the pauses dramatic, with a focus on the original's most progressive aspects. In the wrong hands this could be a disaster, but the hooks on here are memorable and the production crystal clear making this version a certified winner.

QLR004 Medic! by Quartz People

QLR 004
Quartz People
Medic! EP
Quartz Lock Records

Quartzpeople are an emerging Dutch duo, their new imprint Quartz Lock Records is the mouthpiece for Rafi Levin and Vitor Fernandes, the two veteran artists who comprise Quartzpeople. Their mission is to bring a heavy injection of underground rock attitude and abrasiveness to the dance floor. The two originals on this EP - "A.D.D." and "E.C.G." are filled with chest thumping vibes, skippy beats, and firmly rooted sense of house music bravado similar to the kind found in dusty old jams like "Mentasm" and "Purposemaker".


Corrosive acid stains a track that is laden with tough bass lines and the tightly wound melodies of a late night techno cut. The cut expands through layers of glitchy beats and extended tribal workouts to arrive at a place that recalls the renegade feeling of early techno and EBM. Levin and Fernandes keep the mood dance floor appropriate throughout, focusing on a gentle glide to anchor the maelstrom. There is always this sense, however, that the whole thing could pull the roof down on top of itself in a fit of protracted self-mutilation.


"E.C.G." sounds like a long lost Belgian rave classic brought up to modern standards with ample amounts of the polyrhythmic percussion that dominates today's tracks. Add a menacing bass line that sounds like it was lifted from a sleazy old biker film and a few simple, yet effective, melodic elements and this track is guaranteed to inflict some heavy casualties on the dance floor.


"A.D.D. is my pick, but both tracks are good!" - Mike King / WMNC, Sidetraxx
"Solid track, good beats" - DJ Dirrty Harri / Sonic Music Prod, C2's/2 Tone Music
"Very good track. Dirty and bassy. Should be good in a dark club." - DJ Tonedef / djtonedef
"Nice release! - 4/5" - Dislecto (Ukraine) / radio
"Darkly tech rhythms" - Eryo / Mistique Music, DeepSessions
"8/10" - DJ Mindaugelis - Club Exit , Club Global
"Nice feel to it"- DJ Ming / Arthur Lum Disc Jockey, Triple Crown
"ECG " - 3/5" - s007ii / subRoutine (Canada)


Quartzpeople are Rafi Levin and Vitor Fernandes, they are both currently organizing parties in Amsterdam and bringing a new twist to the electro genre with a heavy dose of discordance and minimalism borrowed from punk. Funky beats with a great drive and array of different environments, themes, and melodies. The ambience is indulgent, drawing listeners in to pleasant movements and sensations on just about any dance floor.

The duo is also proud to announce the new label, Quartz Lock Records, and a string of what are sure to be future dance floor hits from the pair in 2010.

Quartzpeople will also be at this year's Winter Music Conference in Miami to promote the new release and label. Please contact them directly for more information about their schedule at the conference. If you'd like a full copy of the single for review please contact us and we'll be more than happy to provide.
