The latest offering from Minneapolis's MEME label comes to us via
Minneapolis expat, Chicago native and rising star InSOUL (MEME,
Nervous) aka Nick Bjelopetrovich aka Bjelo (Monique Musique, KMS),
with an EP of powerhouse originals joined by some of the scene's
young leaders, including Detroit's Dantiez Saunderson, NYC's MANIK,
and London¿s Luke Hazell. Normally we would say "don't read this
just listen," but we can't help ourselves.

First on the EP, InSOUL's ¿Solace¿ is a track of haunting grooves that
slowly draw you into the warm embrace of a shadowy otherworld
saturated with deep textures and a sexy slurred vocal that gets the
body hot every time. Next we have a ¿Solace¿ edit from Detroit¿s Dantiez Saunderson (KMS Records, Soma, Frequenza) where Dantiez goes in for the kill using bits of both ¿Solace¿ and ¿Long Way Down¿ with a hooking chant and unique twist that inspires smooth swaggers and seductive sways on the dance floor.

On his prototypical ¿Haze Jazz¿, Bjelopetrovich takes us on a singular
astral journey infused with steamy, swinging bebop cadences and
saxophone driven funk that is sure to be heard poolside this summer.
Hope you¿re ready to get wet. ;) InSOUL¿s version of ¿Long Way Down¿ continues the overall flow while showcasing his ability to knit together multilayered harmonies, affirmative vibes and sly, subtle rhythms¿no doubt the inspiration to the remixes that follow. In his ¿Long Way Down (MANIK Likes Techno Remix)¿, MANIK (Ovum, Culprit, Poker Flat) takes InSOUL¿s track to a whole new level with a more forward approach expected from a NYC native. Recently featured on Heidi's BBC 1 Radio show, this track is already getting lots of attention. We here at MEME are very excited to get this out to you all!

Last on deck is Luke Hazell¿s deep, driving ¿Long Way Down¿ remix
where Hazell (Royalbox Music, Spindisc Recordings, Loving Records)
delivers¿in the smoothest way possible¿an immersive, meditative
exploration of sensual sound, crisp beats, and hovering bass that
wrap around you like your lover¿s arms as you wake on the beach
after a party with your closest friends.
