February 2017 will mark the launch of Parisian imprint Origine Rec with Saull & Unkyo’s – Les Bains, a split four track EP featuring a remix from Terence:Terry:.

Origine’s manifesto states the brand is out to remove the boundaries between all creative forms or music, fashion and art and is setting out via the launch of Origine Clo, a new fashion line, and Origine Rec the record label to create a fusion of creativity influenced by the underground scene. Here we see the brand kick start its vinyl only Origine Rec imprint with a four-track release split between the brand’s founder Saull and his childhood friend Unknyo.

Up first is the collaborative contribution and title track ‘Les Bains’ from Saull & Unknyo which sets the tone of raw, understated house music via vacillating ethereal synths, rounded sub bass swells and a weighty rhythmic swing.

Saull’s solo cut ‘Ju Lya’ follows and sees the Parisian deliver a similarly dreamy affair with snaking airy pads, chugging bass and stripped back percussion before Unknyo’s ‘Riviera’ ups the energy levels with a smooth, dubbed out aesthetic.

Fellow Parisian Terence:Terry: then rounds out the package with his take on ‘Riviera’ reworking the original into a percussive fuelled low-slung workout.
