Exclusive Premiere: Maurice Aymard & Gui Boratto – Home (Jay Shepheard Remix)
In a year littered with high quality albums thus far and with a host of other hotly anticipated ffull studio efforts on the horizon we think it’s fair to say that 2013 has left us a bit spoilt for choice on the LP front. One of the exciting names sure to be throwing his name into the ring when the end of year awards for debut albums come around for the last 12 months is from Maurice Aymard with his first album ‘Between The Stars’. Entitled ‘Home’ the first single from the release sees Maurice team up with Gui Boratto for a collaboration between two of South America’s leading electronic music producers and serves as the perfect introduction to one of the most sophisticated yet vibrant underground house albums of 2013.
Released on Aymard’s own Galaktika Records ‘Home’ was recorded during a flying visit to Barcelona by the Boratto, the Brazilian producer taxiing straight from the airport to Aymard’s studio for an intense 24-hour session as Maurice explains “I’ve known and been a huge fan of Gui for several years now. He released an EP on Galaktika way back in 2007 and remixed my own track, ‘Put Some For Jules’ in 2010, so when I was recording this album I knew I had to get him on it somehow.
Luckily despite his crazy schedule we managed to get him to Barcelona We didn’t have much time, but got straight to work in the studio and well… It’s Gui, everything he touches is magic!”
For the single release Aymard has also called upon the Berlin based British producer Jay Shepheard to remix the track and the result is a stunning deep house edit which retains all the qualities of the original whilst firmly stamping Jay’s signature sound on the effort as showcased on his own debut album ‘Home & Garden’ which was released to critical acclaim earlier in the year.
