The Only Constant EP
The Only Constant Is Change
The Only Constant Is Change – Dan Ghenacia Remix
Life Goes On Ft. Greg Paulus
Format 12 Inch Picture Sleeve
On Opulence’s second release the label welcomes Grammy nominated artist James Teej with his “The Only Constant EP”. Inspired by his budding years DJing, James revisits his early house influences and delivers two powerful cuts of disco infused grooves laced with an overall contemporary touch.
The first track “The Only Constant Is Change” is a highly infectious dance floor number reminiscent of classic filtered disco house, arranged with a patient and contemporary restraint. The track’s hypnotic and repetitive nature draws the listener in, and keeps the attention throughout with subtle changes that slowly grow to a tasteful and rewarding climax.
On remix duties Opulence has invited Apollonia’s House music legend Dan Ghenacia who delivers a slick deep house rework that keeps the vibes intact of the original with the French artist’s signature groovy machine touch. Already road tested over the summer at DC10, Dan’s remix helps bring the original to a place closer to the club’s dance floor.
The 3rd and final song is “Life Goes On”, a grooving disco infused classic deep house cut that features No Regular Play’s Greg Paulus on trumpet.
The song perfectly blends the sounds of yesterday with a modern touch and feel, and provides an uplifting soundtrack for any dance floor, especially those magic moments outdoors on the beach.
Once again, James continues to show his passion and diversity in his music with this expertly crafted EP that will surely be a welcomed addition to any house lover’s record collection.
“When I started out in electronic music in the 90s, house is what got me hooked. It was the style I have played and loved most over the years.
Back then I would buy a lot of different styles of house records from around the world, I always loved how the sounds were so varied, and would have these amazing subtle differences in their sound and aesthetics. But in the end I have always had a real soft spot for disco and jazzy sounding house.
This record draws on some of my earlier influences, as well as being inspired by some of my favourite labels of the time like Glasgow Underground and Prescription.
This EP comes at a point and time in my career where looking back continues to inspire me to move forward.
I always had a hard time finding records that were a bit more restrained sounding and not too over the top, so this is what I have attempted to do with this record.
To help bring some of these vibes and influences into the 21st century with a modern touch for the new generation of house lovers and DJs.”
