Janeret is a deep house producer from Paris that celebrated his debut release in 2010 on High Seven Records. Since then his label appearances have increased and in 2015 he even dropped a 12” on DJ Steaw’s Rutilance label. I am quite a big fan myself as I am completely hooked by his deep and melodic style of house music. Unfortunately, I was too late to grab a copy of Janeret’s new vinyl only release on AKU. This new EP “JNRT444” includes two remarkable deep house tracks that combine killer grooves and organic melodies to create an outstanding atmosphere.
The A-side of the release starts with a sophisticated drum groove that’s hard to break down into single pieces. Everything seems to blend perfectly together and this creates sort of a tribal feeling. While you are still focused on the drum section, a subtle pad sound starts floating around and sets a beautiful dreamy tone. Well placed and delayed stabs round off this exceptional soundscape. This track was definitely made for summer!
The flipside of “JNRT444” is in no way inferior to the A-side. Although the synth line seems to be somewhat similar to the “Ether” soundscape, its rhythm has definitely more dancefloor potential. It’s not just the melody, but also the drums that give more focus to the hi-hat and the snare, which outlines a forward aiming groove. All in all, Janaret’s new 12” stands out when it comes to vibrating house music, in my opinion. Worth waiting for the repress!
Janeret’s “JNRT444” EP is sold out for now, but will be re-released on May 10th on Juno.
