Kruse & Nuernberg on the remix of Scope's "This Rhythm"

After a year long hiatus from single releases, Bristol (UK) based veteran house imprint NRK Music return with “This Rhythm” from Ric McClelland aka Scope.

With previous releases for Urban Torque and Plastic City, McClelland has established himself as one of the new breed of deep house producers, fusing the warmth and musicality of classic house sounds with modern production and arrangement.

“This Rhythm” is a shining example of McClellands approach to house, with percussion loops, Detroit string stabs and filtered chords all vying for attention while a subtle spoken vocal threads itself throughout.

Florian Kruse and Nils Nurenberg handle remix number one and turn in the sort of peak time mix the pair are known for. Firmly in the neo-Chicago realms of house, the mix builds with fluidity and uses simple but effective drops to make the most of the original’s chords and stabs. Already being played by Richie Hawtin, Doc Martin, Jimpster and Loco Dice, it's looking like this K&N remix will seriously kickstart the duo's production plans for this year!

Finally, long standing NRK A&R Nick Harris serves up an all too rare remix. Having been responsible for the development of many a big name in house music, Harris is about as safe a pair of hands as it gets and his mix more than proves that. Simple and effective is a suitable cliché begging to be employed here as Harris strips things back to drums and bass yet manages to retain the originals vibe through well placed flourishes.

This is a welcome return to singles for a label which has been synonymous with the word “house” for over ten years, and there’s more to come…

"This Rhythm" is releases on digital and 12" vinyl on 28th September. Check out the audio clips below....
