We’re proud present the inaugural message from the world of Valley Sound. Valley Sound is new label put together by a few old heads. Our aim is merely act as a vehicle for the lovely music that comes our way. Puller Productions are Stevie Kotey & Damien Manestar a team brought together by the complete coincidence of moving next door to each other. Damien a synth programmer and all round genius with a love of Fusion and
Progressive rock music. He is also the originator of “Never the Machine” a fusion band with which he plays the meanest Hammond organ. With that in mind they embarked on a journey create some dance floor heat.
“Sentimental Feelings” went all around studio when Damien first hit the notes on the DX synth. It’s like you’ve already heard this classic before as the production (mainly midi based machines) is spot on for the retro “ye old house” sound Mums & Dads used to dance too. A bass line from New York, Strings from Detroit and Piano’s from any major city in the UK circa 1988.
We gave Ray Mang the task of remixing “Sentimental Feelings”. His credentials as super producer are known across the globe with countless projects for labels like U STAR, DFA, NOID and his own Fiasco. He delivered a mind blowing deep remix a real killer! The angelic pianos of “For Ava” go down a more emotional route. Warm pads create a sunny outlook across the valley. Man of the moment Mark E provides yet another amazing remix. We love Mark’s stripped down take of “For Ava” he adds layer upon layer to create a monster as we get Sedna (The goddess of the ocean) deep.
Back very soon
