Chicago don Ron Trent is on a roll at the moment and is gliding through the year with some excellent remixes and releases. He closed off 2017 with remixing Nightmares on Wax - Citizen Kane and then starting the year on NuNorthern Soul with his remix of Ilija Rudman - Tears To Sound, all have different approaches in each remix but what remains is his ability to remain a shining beacon for all that is good in the deep ocean of house music.
Francois K played on his World of Echoes show on Brownswood FM a few weeks back an un-released demos that is still a work in progress, his remix of George Duke - Rhyme or Reason which was originally remixed by David Lalla as a Shelter version stood out in the 4 hours of radio.
Again, his ability to create deep tranquility through house music is a hard thing to master but Ron has been doing it for years and brings a sound of purity to house music allowing the elemental percussive drums to click along in tune with his harmonies and overall musicality of his productions.
The new release on BBE with Ron and Chicago legend Lono Brazil. 'Manchild (In The Promised Land)' is a blissful wig out of synth strings with Brazil's Roland Clark style vocals. It is house music that is going to be enjoyed on terraces, back room tops off sessions and outdoor spaces, one for the summer but yet again one more for the Ron Trent cannon. Essential.
