Stefan Obermaier Launches Drift Recordings – Bagana EP Out Today
Critically acclaimed Austrian DJ/producer Stefan Obermaier and his manager Zwetelina Angelova have launched a new label, Drift Recordings, with Stefan’s own ‘Bagana EP’ (released June 15th) the imprint’s debut offering.
One of Europe’s most exciting producers Stefan has built a name for himself as part of the Zero:Zero Kollektiv, with his solo releases on the Vienna Scientists label and for his Gold selling Classic Re:Loaded project that saw him piece apart some of Beethoven most famous works retooling them for the 21st century.
To launch his own label Stefan has stepped up to the plate delivering 4 tracks that already has DJs purring with delight. Title track ‘Bagana’ sums it all up nicely: Crisp, uplifting, house music primed for the dancefloor.
The rest of the EP maintains that momentum; ‘Ti Pui’ ramps up the sex factor, adding sultry vocal samples to Stefan’s beats. ‘Free again’ goes deeper and darker, though not without a transforming burst of uplifting melody towards the end, and last but not least, on ‘Dab Dab’ Mr. Obermaier delivers that unique dub style that has made him Stefan a household name among house music connoisseurs.
With Stefan overseeing A&R duties and Zwetelina the day to day management of the label, there are already several more releases lined up to take us through the year. Expect to hear a lot more from both Drift Recordings and Stefan Obermaier in 2012.
