CS Premiere • Jerry Bouthier — Yeah! (DJ Tools #1) [B1ZB1Z Remix]
Continental Records label head, DJ extraordinaire and Kitsuné mainstay, Jerry Bouthier, steps out this week to debut his first solo original Yeah! (DJ Tools #1). A striking single showcasing Jerry's adept house touch fused with his trademark jubilant energy, it also marks a new chapter for the London–based talent. After building a beloved catalogue through various projects and, of course, his collaborations with Andrea Gorgerino as JBAG, he speaks to his decision to give it a go on his own:
"With time I’ve acquired confidence and felt I could produce some decent DJ tunes on my own, the kind of funky, housey stuff I play in my sets, nothing as musical or song-led as JBAG – it wouldn’t be fun to do the same thing. The idea of delivering a series of DJ Tools soon came to me, you know simple yet effective tracks that work the dancefloor well without fuss...
So I locked myself in the studio with a pile of old vinyl and came up with ‘Yeah!’, my first attempt at going back to house basics, fusing the soulful vocals of yesterday’s NYC dancefloors to the more underground, bassline vibe of London."
Along with the new single, the release comes accompanied by an ace pair of remixes from Mordisco and Tel Aviv's B1ZB1Z, the latter which we have the pleasure of premiering for you today. The duo adds their own spice into the mix, complimenting the Parisian pioneer's tasteful framework to create a breezy indie–disco jam. Powered by a chugging bassline and an scintillating synths, B1ZB1Z provides an ample amount of danceability to get those bodies moving on the dancefloor.
