Peyo & Cloud 9 & Random Movement – Thats What You Do To Me (Original/Remix) (Blu Saphir 008)

Peyo is a man of many different styles. His creation of the signature “cinema-concert nights,” a distinctive “4-deck DJ-theater show” (performed alongside the Electrons Libres.) has opened eyes across the globe to new techniques in live music. Playing everything from drum ‘n bass to breakbeat, electro, funk and soul, his impeccable, creative mixes have landed him a residency with the legendary Dragon Crew. Playing many shows across his home country and Europe with an impressive list of top notch producers to include Moby, Keaton, Dillinja, Amon Tobin, Shimon and MC Stamina, these credits have cemented his stature as a mixologist in the French drum ‘n bass scene for over a decade. Peyo maintains a busy schedule with recent releases on Bingo Beats and Vandal, a weekly radio show on Toulouse’s FMR Radio with Redeyes, “Breakbeat Experience” and various guest appearances on premier broadcasts, including Fabio’s program on UK BBC, Flight’s Next Chapter and Bailey’s Intabeats.

Not to be confused with the early Cloud 9 (of You’ve Got Me Burnin’ fame), The Funktastics’ Cloud Nine takes a step outside of his group for a superb solo effort with the man mentioned above. Don’t let the name fool you though. Despite the obvious similarity to one of Nookie’s earliest productions, this man is no newcomer to D&B. Putting on events since the mid-nineties with the Dity Crew alongside fellow Funktastics mate, Cosa, “C Nine” has brought out many big names including Andy C, Shy FX and High Contrast. If his more recent releases on Friction’s Shogun Audio and SGN:LTD, Spin Recordings and Sidechain-Music weren’t enough, look out for more discrete and deeper sounds in the pipeline!

What You Do to Me

If you’ve never bought a Blu Saphir release, this would be the one that would fit perfectly in your bag! A superb chord progression on the pads leads into an even more magnificent main vocal, leading the way to more looped samples and an atmospheric backdrop of pure bliss. Big up to the Frenchmen – showin’ the world how to do drum ‘n bass right!

What You Do To Me ( Random Movement Remix )

The RM remix presents a different take on this brilliant piece of work. The trademarked, upbeat feel that is ever-present on so many of Blu Saphir’s releases is definitely noticed here. The vocals are chopped and looped throughout the track amidst multiple driving drum sections. A simple bassline adds the depth while the staple elements roll the track out to the finish.
