PIN – Walk Into The Sun [Goldfat Records]

Goldfat Records are back with another pair of characteristically smooth and emotional D&B rollers as PIN returns for his third release for the label. Walk Into The Sun delivers melancholy pads, a subtle but rugged basslines and rolling breaks for a tune that you’ll easily lose yourself in.

Label boss Mitekiss provides a slightly more upbeat remix of the tune on the flip, retaining the twinkling piano and reverb drenched vocals but switching up the bass and percussion underpinnings.

This one’s out right now at Beatport, and for more from the label be sure to check out their latest mix from Mr Porter below.

Pin – Solitude [Goldfat Records]

Since impressing us with his release last year for Sub:mission Audio, Croydon-based producer Mitekiss has busied himself setting up a liquid imprint of his own in the form of Goldfat Records. Having released two singles of his own material, the label doors have been thrown open to welcome East Londoner Pin to the Goldfat family.

Sticking to the label’s deep liquid aesthetic, Solitude provides the more dancefloor focussed yet still deep and melancholy roller, while When We Were eases back on the gas in favour of softer beats and shimmering, IDM-style synth leads which are drenched in reverb and beauty in equal measure. Blissful stuff. Check out the clips below and watch out for the release dropping August 22nd.
