Leading Brazilian producer, DJ, remixer, D Edge club owner and label boss Renato Ratier is back with second full length album. Entitled Youniverse and due for release in October 2016, it comes three years after his debut and is another fine statement of his varied style.

The dance music scene in Brazil would look very much if it weren’t for Renato Ratier. He is a powerhouse with his fingers in many different pies - not only does he own the Warung and D Edge clubs, he is also a DJ known around the world for his slick selections and a producer who provides many club highlights. His latest single with Gui Boratto was another big hit and he has worked with the likes of Stimming and PillowTalk before now.

This new ten track album touches on many different and equally lush house styles and is laced with ambient soundscapes, subtle synths and absorbing pads. It kicks off with the melodica magic and deep house grooves of Trippy, which sets the scene nicely. From there, Rain is another spine tingling effort with wide open night skies and twinkling melodies making for a spooky vibe. Stars is another rich and rolling groove with colourful synths and squelchy sounds and from there the moodiness and sumptuous melodies continue to sooth your brain.

The second half of the album has some slick dance floor grooves like Comments From Space, more sci-fi sounds like Dispersion, freaky tech cuts like Distance, rippling rollers with loose percussion and clever vocals on Distance and darker sounds like Rous and closer Marte.

This is a coherent and cohesive album that works as well at home as it does in the club, and offers proper music that goes much further than just the realm of the dance floor.
