Feiertag – How U Do It is the final single to be taken from the forthcoming Dive album and it is something very special indeed – a hazy, unpretentious future club classic taking its influences from both sides of the Atlantic.
This new project sees the producer return to something like his musical origins, diving deeper into the use of synths and embracing more offbeat melodies. How U Do It has its roots firmly planted in Detroit of course, but as well as its motor city connections there’s also a flavor of the UK scene in its DNA – something that Feiertag returns to time and again. British labels like Bradley Zero’s Rhythm Section and rising stars such as WheelUP are important touchstones for Joris’ sound, and here their broken beat (or “bruk”) legacy is felt alongside the US house feel and the moody, challenging vocals that run throughout.
Having recently signed to Sonar Kollektiv, Feiertag released his debut long-playing record, Time To Recover, early last year. The album received high praise from international magazines, like DJ Mag and Fazemag, as well as from tastemakers and DJs worldwide.
Feiertag is that restless soul and musical magpie who’s always looking for new ways to express the melodies in his mind.
