Issued on his own Colour and Pitch label, ‘Saint Elias’ is the latest release from UK producer, DJ and musician Sumsuch. Meditative and relaxed in nature, ‘Saint Elias’ was inspired by a handmade religious icon discovered in rural Cyprus, as depicted on the EP’s cover. Smooth chords and simple lyrics repeated like a mantra create an atmosphere of deep reflection over almost ten minutes, perfect for the terrace at sunset. Second original track ‘First Met You’ is a languid house workout featuring tight drums, warm pads, whispered vocals and a heavyweight analogue bass-line, constantly manipulated and filtered throughout to give visceral sense of movement. Completing the package, New York producer and 3Bridge Records artistic director Eric Shans takes ‘Saint Elias’ into nightclub territory, adding swirling chords and his own subtle vocals to create a powerful, cinematic remix.
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
'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.
