Recloose

Recloose

With stock markets tumbling all around us, it’s encouraging to see underground music’s most talented producers and DJs recognised as precious commidities. Of late, Recloose has enjoyed a diverse and focused attention from all sides of the underground music bubble. In 2011 alone his ‘Ain’t Changin’ made it onto James Priestly and Giles Smith’s ’10 Years of Secretsundaze’ mix, while Motor City Drum Ensemble’s mix of !K7’s ‘DJ-Kicks’ featured his track ‘Cardiology. RA’s eternal podcast fountain chose to exhibit Recloose’s skills along with a touching interview from the antipodes-based (New Zealand) producer.

Some might say Recloose’s ‘Demo on Rye’ exchange with Carl Craig in a downtown Detroit sandwich shop has surrounded the man with myth from the beginning. What is certain is that Recloose has developed into a true standout of the city’s musical litter. His inventive and restless output is distinctive and diverse, melding together moody techno, soulful house, synth-heavy jazz, funk and heavy downtempo with the great of ease, and as only he knows how. Not content keeping these skills under his hat, Recloose coordinates a full-time DJ and production programme in Auckland for up-and-coming artist, showing the measure of the man.

 

With tremendous fanfare, summer 2011 saw the much anticipated release of the first original Recloose music to emerge in three years – the ‘Saturday Night Manifesto’ EP for Rush Hour. All the hallmarks of Recloose’s personal trade were displayed, with squelchy synthesizer bass, gleaming Detroit keys, luminous sample stabs, broken beats and careening drum machines. In a nod towards his formative years, the seminal Amsterdam based label last year outed ‘Early Works’, a spine tingling retrospective collection celebrating his best work from the late 90’s and early 00’s.

Additionally, Recloose has to date released a number of groundbreaking 12’s for Planet E and Rush Hour, a host of remixes, and four full-length albums for noteworthy labels !K7, Peacefrog, Octave Lab and Sonar Kollektiv. He has been responsible for several hit singles which remain somewhat hallowed amongst educated heads – namely ‘Cardiology’, (incidentally with a five-star remix from Isolee), ‘Dust’ featuring Joe Dukie, and ‘Can’t Take It’ featuring R’n’B sensation Dwele, later stunningly re-worked by Carl Craig.

A much in-demand DJ, Recloose spent years traversing clubs and festivals around the world, as well as performing as a turntablist for both Carl Craig’s Innerzone Orchestra and the more esoteric Uri Caine ensemble. He has spent much of his last few years recording and playing with his funk-oriented Recloose Live Band, rendering his more house oriented DJ sets a rare treat. Fans can catch him via his ‘Hit It and Quit It’ radio show aired every Monday from Auckland’s George FM (www.hititandquititradio.blogspot.com) – the broadcasts and accompanying blog are sure-fire crate-digging fodder for any self-respecting house head.

This year Recloose resurfaces from his base in Auckland, New Zealand, to once again trail blaze the dancefloors of the US and Europe, with his recent RA Podcast giving listeners a taste of what they can expect from each of his resounding performances. Evidently despite the name, and luckily for followers the world over, Recloose finds it impossible to stray far from the vanguard of electronic music for too long.
