Scratching The Sides

Open Records is proud to first release for the year, a wicked remix package of New Zealand masters Fiord’s Scratching The Sides. 2010 was a defining year in Open Records history, firmly establishing us as a name to watch on the international scene with a string of Beatport chart successes and strong support from Radio and DJs across the globe.

Our first showing in 2011 forms a link between Open Records’ biggest and most successful release yet, Expansion Pack, and our next full length compilation Depth Perception, released in February.

First up on remix duties is Germany’s Ryan Halifax, delivering a storming, bass-heavy rework. Selected by label DJs Paul Abad and Solatek to feature on Depth Perception, the track has already picked up some heavyweight supports and looks to be one of the big hits of the Aussie festival summer. Fellow countryman D-Nox puts it perfectly: “It’s really good… it has a flow. All the sounds are connected and make sense together. It’s got good drive and will definitely work on the floor. Very pumping!”

Rounding out the release is Israeli producer Sheff, with his deepest and most intelligent remix yet. With big support on his prior releases on Open, including names like Umek, Christian Cambas, Misstress Barbara and Piatto, Sheff is fast establishing himself as one of this year’s most exciting names in techno.

With plenty more big releases on the way, we look forward to an exciting year at Open Records and think this is the perfect way to get us started!
