Ahead of the release of his debut full length, Brazilian producer, club owner, businessman and DJ Renato Ratier releases a first single from it featuring Pillow Talk and complete with a Dubshape remix. As well as being a driving force at both D-EDGE and Warung in Brazil, Ratier has recently shown himself to be an adept producer with a great couple of tracks that were stylistically diverse. Here the two originals continue in that good form.
First up, Home Boys is a lucid but deep house cut with molten melodies and thick synth lines jangling around the rm kick drums as thin pads add a celestial vibe. The Kicks and percussion engage nicely and rotate in inviting cycles as a the deep and woozy and seductive vocals of Pillow Talk add an infectious human element to the track. The track gets a ne remix from foremost Brazilian producer Dubshape who unsurprisingly makes the track even deeper and more stripped with a wavy kick clap combo really inciting you to dance and warm neon chords interacting with the originals spritely vocals. Lush indeed.
Sweet Home is the other original and features finger clicks, glowing chords, percussive shakers and rich organ like stabs, which all-together craft a beautifully melancholic vibe. The rubbery, rounded kick drum propels things along and when those trademark Pillow Talk vocals come in it becomes even more achingly love torn and leaves a lasting impact. On this evidence the Renato Ratier album is going to be one well worth checking for fans of rich and musical house sounds.
