Open Records is proud to return to the fold with Imprinted, a stunning new release from four artists leading Australia’s progressive renaissance.
After a short hiatus we’re back in action and running at full steam, with this killer tune by FunkForm leading the charge. The Cairns-based producer is one of the core artists of the Open Records stable, with his warm, atmospheric sound taking cues from the lush natural environment of his World Heritage-listed home.
Imprinted is a perfect example of his sunny vibe and has been a staple of his live show for a long time, so we’re glad to finally let this tried and tested masterpiece out into the wilderness!
First up on remix duties is Melbourne’s Matter. With releases on heavyweight labels like Proton, Visceral, Balkan Connection, Suffused Music and Clinique Recordings, he is one of the busiest and most exciting artists to emerge from Down Under in recent years.
A perfect compliment to the original, his rework strips the original back to its bones but retains its sunny festival feel.
Next we’re proud to see the return of one of our longest standing artists and DJs.
GMJ has been with Open Records since the very beginning, with his first release on our compilation Festivus in 2008, so we’re super excited to have him on board again for our return in 2016.
His deep, space-age interpretation is no doubt up there with his best work yet and a perfect return to the Open fold.
Closing out the release is the enigmatic Maxi Basshead. He certainly isn’t kidding about the bass, with his driving remix packing plenty of punch where it counts the most.
A killer end to a truly exciting release from some of Australia’s finest sons, we hope you enjoy it as much as we do!
