Formed in 2019 as a sub-label of the tougher big brother Night Noise Music, the rising (& shining) French imprint Citizens Of Vice simply cannot get enough of releasing outstanding sophisticated music! One solid EP after the other work as proof of how refined and efficient is their curation process in order to select exactly the kind of sonority the platform aims to spread: Heavily Disco-infused House cuts with Soulful, Balearic, and Downtempo vibes.
Forthcoming on Citizens, Bonnie & Klein’s “Bourbon Street”, a double-distilled and oak barrel-aged spicy EP featuring two proper original cuts and two too-hot-to-trot remixes made with love by two C.O.V. favourites: Coyote and Rayko (SXDNS118). Premiered here, the latter’s remarkable contribution.
Master Rayko needs no introduction. The Rare Wiri boss has already appeared on the most vital Modern/Nu Disco labels out there: Spa In Disco, Nang, Boite Music, Midnight Riot, Tom Tom Disco, Masterworks, and Golden Soul, just to name a few. He is now back again on Citizens Of Vice with a stinking remix of “Lobby Love”. If Bonnie & Klein’s original is an absurdly Mediterranean-soaked piece, Rayko’s version brings the affair to a more Cosmic Funk environment. Still Balearic? Definitely, but groovier, sexier, and steamier. Probably the result of a good studio-meets-old-fashioned session.
You can find (and buy) this and other music pearls on the Juno Download page of the label.
