PREMIERE: Chriss V & Olart - City Of Glass (Eri D Remix) [roku] Following on from the success of their inaugural release ‘Mythical Creatures', roku welcomes Chriss V & Olart to the label for their debut EP. Hailing from Albania, Chriss V has been a fixture of the electronic underground for the better part of two decades. Highly regarded as a DJ, Chriss has shared the stage with a variety of top international talents, with Solomun, Eric Prydz, Hernan Cattaneo, Nick Warren, Henry Saiz, Roy Rosenfeld, Sebastien Leger, Khen, Eli Nissan and Armen Miran being the most notable. As a producer, Chriss has been selective with his projects over the last decade, with Dbeatzion Records, Elliptical Sun Recordings and Inception being the primary landing spots for his progressive sound. Having forged a partnership with newcomer and fellow countryman Olart last year, the duo released their first ever production, a remix of ‘Sands of Time' by Gabo Martin & Jesuan M via Nikko.Z's Dopamine White. Now, continuing to build on their creative synergy, Chriss and Olart debut on roku with ‘Distance Echoes', alongside remixes from Kostya Outta and Eri D. The release concludes with Eri D also making his label debut with the lone interpretation of ‘City of Glass'. Returning from a five-year hiatus the Albanian artist was prolific from 2014-2016, racking up key releases via Abstract Space, Elliptical Sun and Massive Harmony Records. Now calling Miami home, Eri makes a welcome return to the spotlight with an inspired rendition of ‘City of Glass'. While maintaining the elusive spirit of the original, the Albanian artist crafts a deep and progressive experience all his own, a hopeful journey into an emotive hinterland, where dulcet beats, youthful melodies and transcendent designs emerge from their nicely manicured architecture, onwards to a finale of glowing atmospheres.
