Barcelona's Usmev combines with Bleu Renee on the Twilight Room EP, the single for the approaching summer from Bogota Records. A conservatory-trained pianist and guitarist, Usmev first appeared on Bogota's debut release, Themes. A deep, mid-tempo excursion, "Twilight Room" shows supreme confidence in the power of a strong bass groove and the soulful R&B vocals of Bleu with resonating pads filling the left over space.
Renowned Dallas DJ and producer JT Donaldson adds energy to the track with a funkier, percussive remix.
Chuck Love, an equally renowned name in the house music world, gives the song some sleazy Minneapolis soul, teasing out the vocals in an evocative manner.
Rounding off the release with a techy reconstruction, the Copenhagen-based Slammer chisels down the original while speeding up the tempo to match the shuffle of frenetic drums. The Bogota crew have produced an EP sure to seduce dimly lit dance floors.
