Perhaps more than any other artist currently on the Yoshitoshi roster (excluding Sharam), Sinisa Tamamovic has a lasting legacy on Yoshitoshi. His work for the label dates back almost a decade, and his trademark chunky, driving bass lines have become essential elements in Sharam’s sets. Sinisa returns now for another epic EP on the label that is chock full of the heavy, rolling grooves that the Bosnian producer is known for.
The title track ‘Rings’ boasts an abstract melodic hook that sounds like an alien transmission from another galaxy. Translation: PLAY ME! There’s not much to it, but the steady repetitive groove is expertly crafted, keeping listeners constantly on edge with its tense, dissonant build ups. Next up – it’s been a few years, but Dutch techno phenom Egbert is back on Yoshitoshi for the first time since 2011 with a hard-driving remix of ‘Rings.’ Egbert stays true to the original (something we wish more artists would do these days!), but adds plenty of his own flare to beef things up. Stuttery, frenetic drum hits jump in and out of the mix, adding an almost-IDM aspect to the music. Last we have ‘Jam,’ another original from Sinisa that throws frenzied synth riffs over some banging drums for seven minutes of techno thunder. If you need big trax that will keep dancers moving through the night, look no further.
Support and feedback received from Adam Beyer, Hot Since 82, Technasia, Paco Osuna, Eats Everything, Sasha, Audiojack, Sharam and many more!
It’s June 2003, and the power trio of Tony, Halo & Hipp-e have formed a supergroup under the guise The 6400 Crew to unleash a 12-inch that would take the summer by storm. “Dubb Me Some’tin Fresh” quickly garnered support from the upper echelons of the DJ community for its unrelenting groove and its unabashed tribute to the music of producers like Lee Scratch Perry and King Tubby. Fast forward 13 years, and this single further cements itself in the history of Yoshitoshi with a Classic remix pack.
It’s with great pleasure that we welcome LV boss Hector to the label, and Sinisa Tamamovic follows up his two recent EP’s for Yoshitoshi with his powerful contribution. Add to this a deeper remix from Sharam and you have three enormous remixes that each command serious attention. Hector’s mix keeps many aspects of the original, modernizing them with his powerful grooves. Sinisa’s approach incorporates the producer’s signature bass lines into a massive rework of the classic beat, and Sharam does what Sharam does best – flipping the track into a fresh, new mix that is sure to please a multitude of audiences. Finally, the original mix has been remastered for the modern DJ.

Early support from Joseph Capriati, Nicole Moudaber, Carlo Lio, Pirupa, Hector Romero, Yousef, Adrian Hour, Trent Cantrelle, and more.
Anyone familiar with the music of Sinisa Tamamovic knows the man is an expert in techno floor fillers. The tracks here are no exception; Valentina and Confused reside in the world of bold, unrelenting grooves constructed with little more than bass and drums: and they get the job done. The bass lines are distinctly Sinisa; simple, catchy, and mixed exquisitely, they take on a whole new attitude when played on club systems.
Valentina starts things strong, its driving rhythm gaining energy as atmospheres develop and an otherworldly vocal enters, a Latin American street rhyme that gives the track some international flare. Confused is more raw, employing rough drums and ethereal sound effects. Either one will do the trick for peak hours and late nights, and expect to hear these all over the place at WMC 2016.
