Review

Since their first releases on Circus Company and Milnormodern the 3 mousketeers achieve to impose themsleves on the scene with their unik touch. The band is Clement Zemtsov on beat programing, Damien Vandesande on keyboards and horns at last but not least, Jonathan Illel is warmly laying the lyrics. After having produced hip-hop instrumental for a few years they got into house music after meeting Nicolas from Nôze. One year and a half later they come up with Between The Blues ep, a brilliant first EP on Circus Company. Then the guys several EP’s on other labels like Orac or Eklo. They also start touring a lot across europe and eastern countries. This new record is called .Blanche Neige’ (Snow White) as the lead track of the EP. All the lyrics from it are taken from the original text written by Jacob & Whilelm Grimm back in 1812. .Blanche Neige’ is declined in two different versions. On the A side comes the original mix is the dancefoor cut. Slower House beat, solid groove, surround by a marvelous chior. While the break show upreading the first lines of .Snow White’ in french. Let me just tell you that when the break is over you should fasten your seat belt before a nice take off… The first track on B side is Romeo. This track was produced by dOP and Nôze. Once again all the lyrics are taken from a book. Here it’s from .Romeo and Juliet’ written by William Shackespeare. This track perfectly represent the alliance of both bands. The unik saxophone skills from Damien Vandesande the one man horn section, a wonderfull piano ride by Nôze and the sexy voice of Jonathan Illel. An acoustic house blaster ! The Ep is finaly closing down on B2 with the pop version of Blanche Neige called .kinder cut’. There comes the deepness…

Franklin de Costa: “Loving blange neige!!! Awesome track. Gonna chart it for december. Great work guys! ”

Giles Smith (secretsundaze / D: “You can always rely on Circus Company to put out left of centre House / Techno and take risks and this no exception. “Beige Neige” at first sounds like so many other deepish, percussive latin influenced tracks. But listen a little closer and its far from it. There is a definite purity and intensity here with its lo slung, vodoo like bass drum, shakers and slowly developing magical choir chords. Warm and very charming you should definitely seek this out. On the flip “Rome” ft. Noze is a clackety, percussive track with some very live sounding keys and vocals. Last up “Blanche Neige” appears in the “Kinder Cut”, stripped back form some deepeness. Excellent.”

Hot Chip / Felix: “Great tracks, I love these guys and the track with Noze is a real winner.”

Osunlade (Yoruba rec.): “i'm in love with this release! very inspiring and original..as well im a huge fan of noze, so their addition sold me instantly. ”

Raveline: “„So weiß wie Schnee, so rot wie Blut“, etc. Das Dop-Trio nahm sich dem alten Märchen der Gebrüder Grimm an. Und da die Herren nun mal Franzosen sind, heißt ihr Schneewittchen entsprechend „Blanche Neige“. Was zunächst als recht typisch klingender Perkussionhouse beginnt, entwickelt sich sehr bald zu einer hochgradig atmosphärischen Angelegenheit: Während die pochende Bassdrum in Kombination mit shakenden Rhythmusinstrumenten für beschwingten Drive sorgt, lassen warme Chor-Akkorde den Track regelrecht atmen und hauchen ihm eine euphorische Wärme ein, die süchtig macht. Auch auf der Flip gibt man sich belesen und wirbelt Shakespeares „Romeo“ durch gehetzten Funk, wobei sich der zur Unterstützung hinzugezogene Nôze wie wild an einem schweren Piano austobt während Damien Vandesande seine Gangsterjazz-Tauglichkeit in der Brass-Sektion eindrucksvoll unter Beweiß stellt und Jonathan Illel dem tragischen Protagonisten eine verführerisch soulige Stimme verleiht. Schließlich hält die Ambientversion des Titeltracks als nicht zwingend nötig gewesener Epilog für diese ansonsten sehr unterhaltsamen Darbietungen her. 5 Points Achim ”

Ryan Elliot (Spectral): “Thanks so much as always for all the great music. Can't wait to play the DOP. ”

Sebo K (Mobilee): “i'm really into almost everything dop do right now. superb release! ”

Serafin (Mountain People): “A1 ist just pure positive emotions on the dancefloor !!! I love it !!!!”

Seth Troxler (Circus Co. - Wag: “dop is by far one of the best in the business right now, and with this ep they did not disappoint. Blanche Neige is undoubtedly a record that i will play every track from till the grooves where out”

Stefan Goldmann (Macro): “A side is brilliant! Love the "Mmmmmmh" vocal in there - what a great mood.”

Treplec ( Milnormodern): “Don´t stop the nature boys of paris, please. Great next release with much of deepness and six hands full of coolness! I´ll play all, of course! GREAT, again! ”

Tsugi Mag (France): ““Blanche Neige” de dOP. N’y voyez pas ce qu’il ne faut pas voir, il s’agit simplement du conte des frères Grimm déclamé sur une plage de house cotonneuse. Concept intéressant. Suit un titre produit au côté de Nôze, “Romeo”, qui n’a rien à voir avec la pièce de Shakespeare.”

Woody (Fumakilla): “great, great, great! peace out 2 paris...merci, w.”
