Baikal Nomads is an indie dance/organic house record label and the new release features original music from Rabih Rizk, plus a solo remix by Dario Klein, alongside a collaborative rework from Matija and Richard Elcox.
Rabih Rizk is a Lebanese artist who blends dramatic percussion with mystical synths and soothing melodies to create tracks that are perfect for the dance floor. This is his second time releasing on Baikal Nomads and his music can also be heard on other scene-leading labels such as Magician On Duty, Heimlich Musik and Pipe & Pochet.
On remix duty, Dario Klein is an up-and-coming producer from Germany who is known for his synth laden style of organic deep house and releases on the likes of Ritter Butzke Records, Abracadabra Music and Bar 25.
Matija and Richard Elcox are a pair of German artists who regularly collaborate on tracks and remixes for labels such as Cosmic Awakenings, Shango Records, Kosa and Camel Riders. They are also talented solo producers who are well-known for their mystical sound that blends chugging grooves with psychedelic atmosphere.
“Baraka” is first of the two original tracks and it’s downtempo with spiralling delays of trippy percussion and moody pads. The jerking percussion rhythms, stabbing synths and chanting vocals give a marching vibe to the groove.
“Come With Me” has jerking rhythms and quirky synth lines that layered with trippy vocal phrases, create a jovial groove, forming the foundation for mystic pads that add to the track’s hallucinogenic atmosphere.
Dario Klein’s remix of “Baraka” lifts the tempo and adds new percussion to create a flowing groove orientated around the original’s pads and trippy percussion. He also adds some sun-drenched guitar licks and pulsating acid bassline to make the track his own.
Matija and Richard Elcox’s remix of “Come With Me” is a stripped back version built around the original’s stabbing vocals with new percussion and a rubbery bassline.
