Renato Ratier – Black Belt, The Remixes Vol.1 on D-Edge Records


    As well as Brazil being one of the world’s fastest emerging economies, so too is it one of the electronic world’s most quickly developing territories.  Playing no small part in this development is the D Edge club run by Renato Ratier, who is also the place’s assured resident DJ. So too does his output as a producer form the backbone of the club’s eponymously entitled label.   Last year he offered up his debut full-length album, Black Belt, which was a fine genre work, offering up funky disco, deep house and plenty of club ready grooves with sufficient charm as to stand out from the crowd. Now, the label and producer have hand picked 10 producers to rework tracks from the album, and all bases are covered from UK tech to deeper Berlin house with plenty in between.
