Sumera + Rogerseventytwo (+RipTide)

We wrote about the producer Amateur, formerly half of Blokgolf, back in March. Recently he has joined forces with Dutch singer Sumera. Brought up in Germany and Spain, and with Caribbean and Portuguese heritage, she's got a pretty multi-faceted background. This might also show in her music, which she says comes from her love for the symbiosis of pop music and electronica.

Coming up is the iTunes release of "Bright Lies" together with a free remix package consisting of four remixes. We're premi√®ring the remix by Rogerseventytwo, also known as half of techno duo TWR72 which is the second remix put up online. It's an uptempo trancey affair...

...compared to the more mellow nu disco remix that RipTide did:

"Bright Lies" was included on the "Stop Heart" EP, released last spring and produced by Bart Constant. My favourite track is the beautiful "Intro Gender Blender". See, we don't just like deep house nowadays!
