Chris-Gavin---Nice-ViewL-System is proud to announce it’s third release Nice View by DJ, producer and all around ladies man, Chris Gavin! Chris hails from Marseille, France and is often supported by DJs such as Laurent Garnier, Nick Warren, Hernan Cattaneo and more. This release kicks off with Nice View; a cross genre hard to pin gem that you can drop peak time or early night with killer results. Chris follows up with a B-Side track called The Present M. We fell in love with this deep quirky house track at first listen. A truly unique journey that takes you far away while still being dance floor ready.

We’re extremely excited to have to two accomplished and amazing producers on remix duties.

To start things off we have Omid 16b who has reworked Nice View into two absolute masterpieces. Over at L-System we’re a huge fan of Omid 16b’s sound and sought him out for the unique sound he’s famous for world over. Omid’s first mix is filled with upbeat melodic synths mixed in with driving classic drum machine sounds that mix with any house genre. His remix reprise is the ultimate set starter that takes a turn to the dark side halfway through.

Next we have Martin Roth remixing Nice View into a deep house track that strongly carries his signature sound. Slow driving synths and pads drive this unique dance track that keeps the vibe up while still delivering the underground smoothness that Martin knows best.

R.I.P.-Ray Manzarek, 74, Keyboardist and a Founder of the Doors, Is Dead

MANZAREK1-obit-articleLargeRay Manzarek, who as the keyboardist and a songwriter for the Doors helped shape one of the indelible bands of the psychedelic era, died on Monday at a clinic in Rosenheim, Germany. He was 74.

The cause was bile duct cancer, according to his manager, Tom Vitorino. Mr. Manzarek lived in Napa, Calif.

Mr. Manzarek founded the Doors in 1965 with the singer and lyricist Jim Morrison, whom he would describe decades later as “the personification of the Dionysian impulse each of us has inside.” They would go on to recruit the drummer John Densmore and the guitarist Robby Krieger.MANZAREK2-obit-articleInline

Mr. Manzarek played a crucial role in creating music that was hugely popular and widely imitated, selling tens of millions of albums. It was a lean, transparent sound that could be swinging, haunted, meditative, suspenseful or circuslike. The Doors’ songs were generally credited to the entire group. Long after the death of Mr. Morrison in 1971, the music of the Doors remained synonymous with the darker, more primal impulses unleashed by psychedelia. In his 1998 autobiography, “Light My Fire,” Mr. Manzarek wrote: “We knew what the people wanted: the same thing the Doors wanted. Freedom.”(Via NYTIMES)
