Paco Osuna’s record label Mindshake welcomes a stripped-back and groovy house EP by Daniel Orpi and Jean Pierre. Three of the tracks are collaborations and there is also a solo cut by Daniel Orpi.
Jean Pierre is an American artist from Miami and Daniel Orpi is a Spanish artist currently based in London. Both are successful solo artists and this is their first time collaborating.
Daniel Orpi is originally from Barcelona and is currently based in London. He is an accomplished DJ and producer who has released music on labels such as Elrow Music, Toolroom, Saved Music and Eats Everything’s Edible. He has also charted No.1 on Beatport with his ‘Touch Me’ release on Kaluki Musik.
Having travelled the world as a DJ, Jean Pierre is originally from New York and is known for his percussive style of stripped-back house. He is also a successful producer whose back catalogue includes record labels such as Hottrax, Hot Creations, Nervous Records, Desolat and Defected.
“Rush” opens the release with its shuffling rhythms, chunky percussion and trippy vocal sample, before the jackin’ groove and RnB style vocals of “Get It Up”. Third on the release is Daniel Orpi’s solo track “Use To It” which blends techy synths with fast-flowing percussion and captivating vocal textures. “Shifty” is a collaborative track that closes the release with its funky bassline and hypnotic percussion.
