2.YURIY FROM RUSSIA REMIX
3.ALLAN ZAX REMIX
RELEASE DATE : Jul. 27th 2020(beatport) / Aug. 24th, 2020(other)

It's been a while since 19BOX(JUKEBOX) RECORDINGS founder DJ 19 had not released an original track on his own label, despite having had a steady flow of releases under different guises such as Valid Evidence, Ambrozia and the collaborations, as he was busy developing other talented artists.

This hiatus is now over, with the release of his track 'Deo Optimo Maximo', based on housey strings and an interesting melodic proggy riffs with Phuturefunk-style. He's asked some resident artists to remix it, with Yuriy From Russia bringing in his unmistakable dark progressive touch, and Allan Zax developing a beautiful trancey vibe.

19BOX(JUKEBOX) RECORDINGSの総帥が、VALID EVIDENCEにAMBROZIA、はたまたコラボレーション作品、そして新たな才能の発掘に忙殺されながらも、ようやく本道であるDJ 19名義にて還御。「Back Up Again」以来となるソロ作品「Deo Optimo Maximo」は、ラテン語で“至善至高の神に捧ぐ”を意味する。崇高なストリングスとプロッギーなリフを従えたPHUTUREFUNKスタイルなオリジナルに対し、レーベルのレジデントである2人のプロデューサーが調理を申し出た。まず、YURIY FROM RUSSIAは、ダーク・プロッグにアレンジし、またALLAN ZAXはメロディックな部分を強化し、トランシーに仕上げてくれた。

'Always Wonder' closes out the release as another side of  'Normandy' with female voices. One for the late night floors.

PARK LIMITED MUZIKに於いては、SOTA S.とのコラボレーション・トラックである「From Tokyo To Paris」に続くELGONEの3曲入りEP「The French Connection」が到着。映画の『フレンチ・コネクション』とは無関係だが、このタイトルは、現在パリをベースに活躍しながらも、自身の出生地をテーマにした「Normandy」に、ノルマンディー地域圏のアゴン=クタンヴィルに由来する「Agon」、そして女性ヴォイスを追加した「Normandy」の別ヴァージョン的扱いの「Always Wonder」を収録していることに起因する。テック・ハウスを機軸にしながらも、アトモスフェリックな質感やレイヴの影響も内包。

Valid Evidence, the collaboration between DJ 19 and Yu-Ta, strike back on the 19BOX(JUKEBOX) RECORDINGS imprint with another fantastic cover version following their previous release 'The Crying Game'.

Next up we welcome back Calgary based Bread N Butta AKA Enno Karr and One Less Of Them, who delivers a gem of a remix with chillhouse and 80s vibes.
