Diversions: A brand new label from two long-time conspirators and confidents Oxia and Nicolas Masseyeff.

Friends for over 15 years and frequent studio collaborators, the two Frenchmen have taken their pact to the next level with their own label. Its ethos is galvanised by their strong shared vision: to only release music that truly touches your soul and makes you want to dance, to embrace all styles and shades of house and techno and avoid releasing the same sounds time-after-time-after-time-after-time….

Music like these label launch tracks. Three in total, each one designed for a different chapter of the night. ‘Connivence’ stirs your soul instantly thanks to its superb use of strings. Restrained but loaded with emotion, whether it’s a warm-up or end-of-night shade of poignancy, it will touch hearts with authenticity.

‘Complicity’ follows with the delicious dubby swing. The type of rolling, jacking, sub-loaded, funk-coded techno that’s sounded great since either Oxia or Nicolas began their lives as professionals, it’s an instant heads-down moment when the night is in full throe, the dancefloor’s white flag is waving and minds are slowly being cleared of the day-to-day detritus we all carry around too much.

Finally we hit ‘Take It Back’. A much more tech-edged cut led by a com-manding, hypnotising vocal sample and rasping, electrified bass, it’s tai-lored for much darker chapters of the night as the gears crunch mischievously up the scale and the lights dip lower… And lower… And lower.

Echoing all the traits and sonic signatures we’ve come to expect from the pair over their combined 40 years of releases, all three cuts offer something completely different, fresh, exciting and open for all styles of house and techno DJ. Well… They didn’t call the label Diversions for nothing. Expect more very very soon.
