Emi Brandan's journey into the world of music

The original single really encapsulates the feel and mood of Melancholic thoughts, and for us being in the heart of club land in Ibiza and the end of the summer seasons now here, its quite especially poignant. Emi's original tells a story of time sober thoughtfulness and the prolonged thought of happy memories which stay in the playful heart. A beautifully uplifting release with a ting of sadness. Reaching no 9 in the Organic House releases is the sure to push Emi in to the limelight, and drive home the talents of this Argentinean Producer / DJ and put a stamp on a future of big potential.

Tim's Beach dub takes an electronica view on the mood but stays true non the less to the original. With a slightly euphoric and Balearic feel you could be transported to a happier time full of love and music. Beautiful beaches and magic moments are the order of the day a time gone by which again ignites the melancholic mood once more.

The Music Of Herringbone

Man leaning against a brick wall and standing up right.

Micheal King is no stranger to V&P, he first came in to our line of vision when he remixed Bemannte & Bruder's "Driving" again in the Melodic House and Techno vibe to huge acclaim. This time he is back with his pseudonym Herringbone to take the original to a whole new level. Beginning deep and mood there is a deepness to this one, never takinh things to fast. It slowly starts to build never taking things to fast, breathing and building to the monster of a track that finally opens up to envelop the dance floor. The break down just gives us a hint of the original but then once again burst in to life. Reaching no 24 in the Melodic House Releases chart is no mean feet in a genre flooded with massive artists, and yet still the quality shines thru.

Michael King, known in the music scene as Herringbone, embarked on his DJ journey in the year 2000, marking the inception of his passionate exploration into the world of electronic music. As the years rolled on, his artistic evolution led him to delve into music production, a pivotal step taken in 2009.

With an ever-growing repertoire, Michael crafted timeless tracks, including 'Plum Bobb' and 'If It's Silent,' which have transcended the boundaries of time and space to become revered classics within the clubbing community. These compositions garnered widespread acclaim and found staunch support from luminaries in the industry, such as Sasha, Sander Kleinenberg, Aeroplane, and Norman H. Michael's sonic journey has been meticulously curated through releases and remixes on esteemed labels, including Stripped Recordings, Hype Muzik, Soulfire Downloads, Beat Code, and Baroque Records. Beyond his main alias, he also channels his creative energies into the alternate persona of Herringbone, adding yet another layer to his multifaceted musical expression.
