5 would be the key number for the brand new Chateau Flight release on Versatile.
It's been 5 years since the last release and it took 5 days to record. Nicolas(I:Cube) was busy with his own material, I moved to Amsterdam 3 years ago and as we like to make music in the same space it took a bit of time but
finally it's here; the Dam House EP.
I invited Nicolas to visit me last winter, not to do music but just for a cool A’Dam hang out. This turned into 5 intense days of fun production in my studio. It was amazing for both of us to witness how our connection remained intact after all
those years and the ideas came really quick. The vibes of the tracks all turned out pretty different, it's a true Chateau Flight kaleidoscope with an epic 10mn Techno track Sargan, a more House vibe, Crazy(Dam House mix ), a heavy
dark funk drive of Lo and the ambient Crazy(Ambient mix).
This record would have not been the same without Redlight records,to whom this record is dedicated. James and Abel left their shop open at night just for us and as children in a candy store we went through the racks looking for samples that formed the inspiration for this ep.

A sublime collection of ambient and emotive electronica.
There is a real sense of space and grandeur here - some of the songs feel distinctly Floydian in inspiration (particularly by Shine on You Crazy Diamond), but the synth waves and pulses develop in very differently.
And the songs are clever, too; they and and flow; rather than simply meander. These are compositions. Voyages, really.
Fans of music that engages the heart, mind and soul equally should investigate immediately. Michael Mueller
