New Single: 'Simpatico' feat. Will Brock

Brand new single 'Simpatico' sees the light of day on July 22nd, exclusively on Beatport. Techno powerhouse and ‘reclusive perfectionist’, Myles Sergé and 'eclectic experimenter' Q Burns Abstract Message provide stellar remixes.

“Simpatico” finds Sumsuch joined by Philadelphia-based soul man Will Brock whose vocals add a seductive human touch to the producer’s already emotive and atmospheric palette. Marked by its solid, dance floor rhythm and able vocal, the cut’s chirpy textures peal in and out marrying subtle chord progressions alongside a rising drumbeat. The first of two “Simpatico” remixes comes from US techno powerhouse and self-confessed ‘reclusive perfectionist’ Myles Sergé (6ONE6 | DEFREC, ESHU Records). His speedy but spacious take on the original can only be described as melancholic - a sound that will surely appeal to fans of dreamier, esoteric club music. Twinned with off-kilter percussion, this tender slice of left-field techno is, simply put, nothing short of beguiling. Next up, Orlando native and aloof production hero Q-Burns Abstract Message lends his own special touch to “Simpatico,” complete with rolling drums and dubbed out bass lines. Treading the fine line between ‘eclectic experimenter and populist ass-shaker’ Q-BAM supplies a vintage reworking which effortlessly defies genre tags. “Kelly Drive,” another original track from Sumsuch, deftly completes the package. Full of evocative strings and just the right amount of acid, this instrumental track sees Sumsuch at his cinematic best as he recreates a journey across Philadelphia on the scenic road known as ‘Kelly Drive’.

The Philly connection throughout this release is no coincidence. As Sumsuch himself puts it: “Every artist from Philadelphia I’ve worked with over the years has brought a level of talent, soul, inspiration, and magic to each project which I have simply not experienced in any other city on Earth. In Will Brock I have found yet another Philadelphia collaborator to stretch and challenge me artistically. So this release is humbly dedicated to the City of Brotherly Love. There truly is something in the water!”

Sumsuch & Will Brock - There Comes a Time

'We declare, that you no longer have the right to steal our joy!' That's the message, as Will Brock and Sumsuch return to Colour and Pitch with new single 'There Comes a Time'. Will Brock and Sumsuch have been making music together since 2014, releasing two successful albums on iconic UK label BBE Music under their alias 'Mega Jawns'. In the grand tradition of Soul music, the instrumentation of 'There Comes a Time' is warm, lush and comforting, the lyrics filled with equal measures of pain and hope. Gospel-tinged contemporary deep house might be the best way to describe this mercurial and powerful song. Whether politics, relationships, poverty or discrimination, there is so much in the World designed to steal our joy. 'There Comes a Time' is a signpost toward an imagined, but entirely possible, promised land- a future where we can all come together with love and compassion for one another.

New Release: Sumsuch & Will Brock - Humanity Remixed

A year after the release of the original version, Colour and Pitch revisits Sumsuch and Will Brock 's tender Deep House cut ' Humanity ', with remixes by Paul Losev and DJ Joma . Premiered in April 2022 on BBC Radio 1Xtra, Paul Losev's rework of 'Humanity' lifts the track into orchestral territory with cinematic sonic atmospherics and spine-tingling piano melodies. Formerly known as Paul2Paul, this is the insanely talented Miami resident Losev's first appearance on Colour and Pitch, and we're very excited to welcome him to the label family. Host of the brilliant 'Thru The Looking Glass' podcast, Belfast's DJ Joma regularly plays on Bloop London, Data Transmissions Radio, Ibiza Global Radio and Pure Ibiza Radio. His version of 'Humanity' beautifully exemplifies Joma's languid, sun-drenched production style, perfect for the terrace this summer. 'Humanity' is perhaps Sumsuch and Will Brock's most heartfelt and accomplis
