The Sound Of New York City has been going since 2008. Born out of a musical movement and radio station, the label was established in 2019, all created by the much respected and experienced sound engineer Danilo Braca. The label has released music by esteemed artists such as DJ Nature, Ashley Beedle, DJ Rocca, DJ Spinna, The Revenge, Synth & Soda, and SuperJaimie. The next one up on the NYC label is ‘Sïana Woza-Woza’ by the label head himself, which includes a solid original plus a remix by the one and the only Ron Trent.
The A side kicks off with ‘Dubbed Sïana’. Brimming with ethereal vibrations and a bewitching charm that lures and tantalises the listener. A vacillating pad, kick drums, and a lively djembe are joined by a bright trumpet in this journey through a moody Afro-house groove. Along the way, elements are layered with a loosely restrained acid gurgle and the hypnotic beckoning chant. Intensifying and retreating, this track never comes up for air. Like its “Woza-Woza” title suggests, Sïana is smoky and almost mystically enticing with its own unique blend of sonic flavours.
On the AA side Prescription Records master, Ron Trent, lends his signature refinement and style to the mix. Trent blends succinct rhythms of the ambrosial hours with sultry echoes for a classic yet potent take on the original.
