Acumen – Sweet Sensation EP (incl Dyed Soundorom & Echonomist remixes)

December 9, 2009

Staying true to the musical statement of the mother label, Safari Numerique will have no main style of music, but will explore many. Each will be a journey into electronic music. With groove, sensuality and experimentation all being key ingredients. The label will be working with open-minded artists who share their passion for music and the desire to constantly push the boundaries or achievement.  001 sees France’s hottest new talent Acumen step up to the plate. Already tipped by Mr Richie Hawtin as his producer of 2009, he has been releasing some of the freshest sounding house of today. With his sounds ranging from deep and lush to techy and driving, he has rapidly collected an army of fans, who eagerly await each release with baited breath. His own labels Time Has Changed and Time Is Now have been run with the same creative vision as his music, and have already spawned some of the best releases of 2009.  Today’s EP has three fantastic original productions ‘Sweet Sensation‘, ‘Vain In Train‘ and ‘Milk & Eggs‘, and if that isn’t enough for your floors, Safari treat you to two stunning remixes of the lead track. Freak n Chic artist Dyed Soundorom lends his talents to ‘Sweet Sensation’, as does Resopal Schallware artist Echonomist, who takes us deeeep…
