Moteur Ville Musique, the Detroit based label at the centre of championing underground talent, welcomes Vancouver-based Poor Pay Rich with his Sasamat EP. Famed for his deep, groove filled sounds the release also features remixes from Motor City heavyweights Shaun Reeves and The Saunderson Brothers.
“With the opportunity to work with North American labels that are closer to home, the prospect of doing an EP with Moteur Ville Musique really inspired me. Based on the fact that they were able to secure top notch remixers for this EP, I couldn’t be happier to be on board. This will be a stellar release with Shaun Reeve’s and The Saunderson Brothers to top it off!” Poor Pay Rich
Opening the EP with a mind-bending rhythm and reverberating pads, Sasamat summons the listener to a dark and moody warehouse where inhibitions are let loose. A linchpin of the Detroit sound, Visionquest founding member and acclaimed DJ and producer Shaun Reeves morphs the original into his atmospheric style, sending you deeper into the night. Up next on remix duty and needing no introduction are The Saunderson Brothers, with a ramped up tempo and unrelenting beat. Rounding off the release in a suitably wonky style, Sunset is a swelling house cut made for the early hours.
A name synonymous with the underground scene Poor Pay Rich has released on DPE, Little Helpers, New Violence and Low Groove. For over a decade Shaun Reeves has been producing music and touring the globe.
