Premiere: A2 – Lele Franza – Rosea (Costin Rp Remix) [PYRY03]

Milan based Pennyroyal Records have built up a rock-solid rep by way of their After Tea parties and have bolstered this very nicely with their vinyl only imprint. Previous editions have seen the crew members Ricky Leo and founder Lele Franza producing an EP each backed by stunning remixes from their talented confidents. For the third edition Franza returns to his beloved label and is backed by reworks from Costin Rp and family members The Lumens.

We pick up the release with the sterling remix of title track ‘Rosea’ from Romanian hotshot Costin Rp. Known for his unique sound palette and finely weighted mixing style Costin takes the original bubbling acidic synth lines and sprinkles his trademark atmospheres, punchy kick and repeating conga motif to the mix. The original airy textures are also reworked into Costin’s version where the breakdown benefits hugely from this where he edges out the perfectly curated drop back into his spacey groove.

Moving onto the B side and it begins with another original from Franza in the shape of the grinning ‘Boreale’. The mean bassline is as relentless as it is functionally funky and this gives the arping synth the perfect platform from which to really shine. Stripped back and pumped with understated energy that will easily transfer on to the floor of any party. The Lumens expand on this bassline in a much more upfront fashion, the same goes for their work on the arping synth with the addition of mirrored synths in almost a call and response vibe. One for the later hours when it’s all about maximum impact for the minimal heads.

PYR03 Is now available to pre-order from and will ship from 17.04.23.
