German underground favourite CINTHIE has remixed the Picard Brothers latest single ‘Blessing In This House’, out now.
Centred around an infectious organ sample, the CINTHIE remix of ‘Blessing In This House’ further accentuates the gospel-evoking energy of the original while losing none of its club-ready groove. It marks the first in a trio of ‘Blessing In This House’ remixes, with additional reworks from French artist Para One and UK DJ and producer Higgo in the pipeline.
While not exactly household names, Picard Brothers have been instrumental in shaping contemporary music since their inception in 2011. First cutting their teeth making beats for French rappers, the Parisian duo would later write and produce tracks for the likes of Beyonce, Mark Ronson and Miley Cyrus, also winning a Grammy for their contribution to ‘Electricity’ by Dua Lipa and Silk City.
Breathing fresh energy into French touch and soulful, golden-era house, their recent output follows a rich lineage of French dance music that can be traced back to Daft Punk, Laurent Garnier and Stardust. Rather than offering a cheap imitation, the Picard Brothers have reimagined and revitalised classic sounds in a way that connects with the masses. “We think we owe it to a past era,” they explain. “But it’s not a basic tribute – it’s combined with another thing: feeling”.
One of Europe’s most respected purveyors of all things house music, CINTHIE has released on the likes of Shall Not Fade, Key Vinyl and her own 803 Crystal Grooves label, also performing at world-renowned clubs such as Watergate, Paloma Bar, ClaireAmsterdam and Sub Club. More recently she dropped single ‘City Lights’ on Aus Music, with the track receiving remixes from fellow underground tastemakers Gerd Janson and Damiano von Erckert.
