2 x CD & DD released On Streamlined Records / Spinnin’9th September 2011
With two renowned artist albums, one much-praised mix-comp and over 30 singles and remixes to his name Leon Bolier has a dance music discography to covet. The next entry into that canon is ‘Streamlined 2011’ - the follow up to his solo compilation debut. Buenos Aires was the focus for the 2009 release, but this year it shifts its gaze to hot-topic Tunis – one of the epicentres for this year’s Arab Spring.
“Since I have played in Tunis and other places in Tunisia quite a few times now I want to dedicate this CD to the Tunisian crowd. Tunisia being one of the first countries being affected by the Arabic Spring made me realise how precious life and freedom is and should be to every one of us. Whatever side you're on - it doesn't matter. As long as we celebrate the fact that we can unite in music, and celebrate life through sharing a passion for the music we love, we can truly overcome our differences. Love to the Tunisian crowd, and having said that, love to all crowds all over the world that make my job one of the best jobs in the world!”
Finding fresh-from-the-studio music was a must for Leon when creating and compiling the album. At the start of the summer he put the word out through his Streamlined radio show and social networks that he was on the hunt for new production talent & tracks. Artists from around theplanet heeded his call in their hundreds. Leon ended up working with many of them to tweak and refine their music. As a result acts like Eden, Diederick van Loo, Danny Cullen Ft. Gracie, Leander Dittrich and others make their debuts on ‘Streamlined Tunis’ - resulting in an album where over 75% of its music is unreleased and thus far unheard.
In terms of what you should expect to hear on the album, it could just be simpler to tell you what you won’t. Across the two mixes Bolier stylistically weaves sounds, sequences and FX from the entire EDM panorama. From the early chugging, abstract resonance of ‘Reykur’ and ‘S¢lsetur’ (from Oliver Englafjord, aka Marcus Schossow in disguise) on Mix 1 through to Leon’s climactic Pulp Fiction reboot (and Guetta/Van Buuren/Van Doorn hammered) ‘Vengeance, Vengeance’, the album bucks classification. Likewise locked into this mix is the bold, brash, chanted vocal pump of Lissat and Voltaxx’s‘The Walk’, the hi-lo frequency fusion of Inpetto’s FX-powered ‘Hit Back’ and the out-funk groove of Sergio Fernandez’s latest thoroughbred ‘Night Vibe’. Those in search of big room thrills will need look no further than Apple One’s pulse-racer ‘Start The Fire’ and the afterburning uplift of Matthew Peterson’s‘Mr Who’.
Things get underway just as fast on Mix 2 with Leon’s purpose-built Intro rework of Sied van Riel’s‘Rush’ and Sander van Doorn’s Purple Haze comeback ‘Timezone’. Quickly hitting the fast-lane, Bolier dextrously works in captivating vocal numbers like Mike Saint-Jules and Sandel’s‘Moonlight’, big, striking roof-raisers from Nuera, Dave 202 & Emanuel and Vast Vision (with their no-nonsense podium-pounder ‘Disruption’). Bringing proceedings to a big conclusion he deploys his new production track ‘Yesterday’s Eve’ and the standout floor-blazer from his ASOT500 – South Africa performance, ‘Cape Town’.
‘Streamlined – Tunis’ is a mix comp for those who want their dance music without borders. A subgenre-free journey into some of themost exciting sound design 2011 has to offer. It’s out on September 9th.
