French producer Erell Ranson’s affinity for the deeper shades of Detroit sound and his ability to absorb those influences and create beautiful music with his own signature are well known. Erell became quite skilled in crafting sophisticated and emotional tracks which still seem to feel perfectly at home in a crowded 3 AM club situation. This Barba EP, titled “Dreams Of Nila”, is a 4-tracker with an additional remix treatment by a Rotterdam-based project Duplex.
Erell Ranson offers up a delicate and beautiful EP of accomplished texture and melody for his Distant Worlds debut. He shows a real delicate touch here and multiple listens will ensure the melodies and earworms penetrate deep into the psyche. Future soul music dripping in emotion, indebted to Detroit, outta France.

Comp For Andreas Gehm features unreleased and exclusive material.
This 4 track EP begins with Erell’s original version of ‘Everything Needs to Be Clear’. Its combination of gentle chords with electro beats is the foundation of the musical ideas explored throughout this release. The second track, ‘So strange to explain’, is deeper and an adventurous fusion of dark, intense tones, swirling beats and insistent percussion. On the flipside, Canadian Rennie Foster remixes the title track, and delivers a fine piece of modern dancefloor techno which respects the key elements of title track. Erell’s ‘Sandcastle’ closes the EP, and its sophisticated yet punchy bassline and fragile synths recall some classic early ‘90s productions.
