Having recently celebrated its second birthday with the release of 100% Continental, a best-of mix conceived by its A&R/DJ Jerry Bouthier, Continental records now stops off in Japan for Boys Get Hurt’s new EP: Your Love featuring Cinema Citizen.
Already noticed for his remixes (Reflex, Chela, Autokratz, DCUP, Pherotone…) and with several releases under his belt (including a track on the Bonjour Colette compilation), Tokyo-based Yuki Abe AKA DJ/producer Boys Get Hurt gets his inspiration from the melancholic feelings the end of summer inevitably brings about, a personal and evocative sensibility in tune with the land of the rising sun’s delicate culture. Yuki expertly crafts bouncy disco-house music with sprinklings of electronica, indie, ambient, hip-hop and R&B – perfect 2014 pop to our ears.
On ‘Your Love’, a meaningful song to practice your best dance moves to, he has teamed up with male vocalist Cinema Citizen - Nobuki Akiyama, borrowed to band Ykiki Beat - for a boyish declaration of love in all its teenage glory. Dutch rising star NSFW gives it a slick makeover with a deeper twist, whilst French hopeful Avantime takes a slightly more introspective route. Let’s not forget the sublime B-side Sea Through, a tantalizing, hypnotic disco merry-go-round which shows the prolific Boys Get Hurt is far from being a one-trick pony.

As the saying goes, it’s not where you’re from but where you’re at, as Continental’s painstakingly been demonstrating these last two years putting out singles from like-minded musicians across the globe (London, Paris, Sydney, Osaka, Toronto, Ghent, Zurich etc). This time, for its 14th release, Jerry Bouthier’s imprint is jetting off to Jakarta, Indonesia, to hook up with local electrodisco heroes: Mjolnir. Spell M-J-O-L-N-I-R, which means the hammer of Thor, heard as thunder by humans!
Inspired by European synth pop, Mjolnir, the brainchild of Nara Anindyaguna and Catra Adhiwardana, dub their sound ‘dark disco funk’. The pair’s been getting steady, growing love from the best blogs out there thanks to winning melodies, skilled musicianship and a fresh - not so quite easy to pigeon-hole - approach that’s seen them remix The Chemical Brothers,Chromeo and more.
The EP contains four brand new reinterpretations taking the gorgeous ‘Just A Boy’ to new heights. JBAG aka Continental bosses Jerry Bouthier and Andrea Gorgerino could not resist giving it a glam make-over that’s both nostalgic and uplifting at the same time. Fresh from their debut “Bombay Night Story”, Continental’s last release, Switzerland’s Mannequinedeliver an ambitious re-rub that climaxes with housey pianos. Next, Vancouver-based rising producer Pat Lok gets rough and funky without losing the soulful gist of the original composition. Finally Helsinki’s Castletics combines robodisco groove and timeless euro flavours.
