About the release:

After a short break, Enterbt Records is back on track, and what a return it is. ER 0003 features three tracks by a true Swiss mainstay: Shaka. The fourth track is remix of the title track by Titonton Duvanté, himself not a new face to the Electronic Music scene, either.

Shaka, born Kurt Spichiger, based in Basel, has been getting into housier and housier territory with his productions (keep in mind, back in the nineties, the man has released a double EP on Woody McBride’s Country&Western Imprint, a sublabel of Communique Records). The title cut features Martina Koch on vocals; it’s a sultry House track with a jazzy vibe to it.
A2, “Saxon” does what it says on the tin. A saxophone-heavy track, cleverly intertwining a sampled bit (wherefrom? We have no idea!) with Shaka’s own playing, another proof of his versatility, and his love for understatement. Nobody knew he plays sax.
On the flip, “Zulu Celebration” takes us into tribe territory, its looped chant driving the dancers on and on through the night.
Titonton Duvanté provides the closing number of this EP with a brilliant remix of the title cut. If you ever witnessed Titonton spin, you will know his exquisite skills behind the decks, and how he constantly goes back and forth between bleepy Minimal tracks and jazzy House – condense that down to a track of seven minutes, and you know what to expect from his mix!

Enterbt Records is the brainchild of Demetrio Giannice, an Italian-born, Swiss-bred House-addict since the dawn of the DAT tape. Lately, he has had his tracks released on labels such as Third Ear Records and Drumpoet Community, and his remixes have featured on Mojuba and co-productions on Balance Alliance. His deep interpretation of soulful House got heard by one legend of the scene, at the moment only nown as a certain A.P., who now is taking sonic care of the premastering stage of all tracks to be released on Enterbt Records.
