Many of the world’s greatest house and techno labels have found inspiration from Boris and his new album Believe In Me will surely not disappointment either. This is a double album comprised of two discs, the first consisting of his original productions and remixes, the second will be a DJ mix of all of Boris’ favorite tracks right now. This incredible showcase of Boris’ many talents as a producer, remixer and DJ will show EDM fans everywhere why his “Believe” brand is one of the most popular and influential in dance music from the last decade. Believe In Me will be released May 6 on Nervous Records.
The first disc is very techno and features Boris’ original tracks and remixes, many that have already been released or are soon to be released on some of the genres best labels including Great Stuff, King Klong, Krone, Octopus, Sci+Tec, Toolroom and more. The first disc seems to be made with a darker side of techno to it. Following a brief intro, Didier Largemain “Pumoing Beats (Boris Edit)” starts things off with thumping beats and heavy drones. Then Sydney Charles “Bid Badda Boom (Boris Edit) comes in with a tribal vibe as his “Funky Bells” fades into the mix bringing some real heat. Boris & Chus feat. Roland Clark “Sould Of A DJ” has a little more funk right before Boris goes into the distorted vocals in his hit “Out The Door” followed by his dark sci+tec favorite “Foul Beats.” Moving to a slower pace and unique effects, “2 Me” is more than just a beat it demands multiple senses and it is just the right segue into the chaos that begins in the huge Octopus Records release, “Control.” Then its time to take a breather with Boris and Oscar L’s “Begin” and a funky side of techno with the track suitably named, “Funky Beat.” Boris then winds down the first disc with two versions of his track, “For You.” Saab compliments Bori’s original with a smooth shot of throbbing techno house that offers a perfect comedown from the madness.
Disc Two captures the essence of Boris’ treasured “Believe” events. A short intro of Boris’ hit “Foul Beats” sets the mood for the soundscape techno that is Gaga’s “Musk” moving into the choppy beats in Richie Santana’s “If You Came To.” Tony Dee “The Queen” comes out guns hot and right into the groovy Peter Bailey “Jungle Kisses” and the thundering “Baloo” by Redhead. Techno don Marco Bailey takes the next one to a more upbeat level with “Horny Tiger” then Mr.Bizz dives into the deep end on “Flash.” Tomy DeClerque’s clangy “Room Full of Tools” bangs right through to Scottish legends Slam and Gary Becks’s remix of their pulsing “Harlem” leading intoCatz & Dogz mix some Detroit sound into Handycraft’s “Le Bal Masque.” The set calms down with the sounds of tech house from Chus & Nuno Clam feat. Velvet Voice “Between Us (Hollen Remix),” Mr.Bizz “Dancin’ In The Streets” and Sinisa Tamamovic “Tips and Tricks.”
Boris has been one of New York City and Miami’s most beloved DJ/ producers for more than a decade now.
His “Believe” parties at Pacha New York and Space in Miami are two of the most popular events in dance music and he is constantly packing clubs in cities all over the US.
