Juan Hoerni - Caviar Et Vin (Cha Cha Project Recordings)
8DPromo

Coming Soon From Cha Cha Project Recordings: 1. Caviar Et Vin (feat. Irantzu Pujadas) 2. Computer Love (feat. Irantzu Pujadas) 3. Unlimited Capacities (feat. Chezere) . A buoyant new single hits just in time for summer from Juan Hoerni, Los Angeles’s rising soulful house maestro, and his Cha Cha Project Recordings imprint. The Caviar Et Vin EP features three stunning deep vocal house cuts pulling from influences across R&B, disco, classic house, and Italo. Juan’s crystalline production and the gorgeous vocal delivery from Irantzu and Chezere make these tracks instantly stand out on the dance floor. “Caviar Et Vin”, the first of two songs sung by Irantzu, imagines a lost ‘80s club classic pulled from the soundtrack of a hip French film. A bouncing synth bass line, swirling pads, and a cooler-than-cool saxophone solo make this one perfect for night cruising. Irantzu continues with sexy French vocals on “Computer Love,” a song that deftly combines Rhodes piano, a vocoder hook, and the sound of a familiar robot friend into an after hours gem. On the third track, vocalist Chezere makes her appearance on “Unlimited Capacities”. Somewhat funkier with a groovy bass line and plucky guitar hits, the cut nicely builds, providing a satisfying treat for the house heads on the floor. .

Futureworlder - Just Let It All Go (Whiskey Pickle)
8DPromo

Coming Soon From Whiskey Pickle: 1. Forever 2. Energie 3. Altruism 4. Just Let it All Go . Whiskey Pickle puts out a solid installment of psychoactive house with Brian Traister’s otherworldly Just Let It All Go EP. As Futureworlder, Traister gives a taste of the alternative planet of his imagination. The Brooklyn-based DJ and producer’s escape unfolds like the unforeseen house expression of a new age past. The hazy sun rises over the horizon mirrored in the water as the opener “Forever” begins, awash with warm synths lapping at the shore while revelers weary from the night before are summoned by the steady rhythm of the kick drum to give it another go, tempted by the rising hi-hats and chunky bassline, dancing in the warm sand, only coming down midstream to cool off in the surf and then dance some more in the rising sun. “Energie” follows, quoting an old school, lush deep house flavor complete with warm, enveloping pads and echoing percussion. “I believe good can only bring good,” says the voice on the third offering “Altruism,” and repeats like the clear memory of a party-worn dancer whose flood of endorphins makes him philosophical, hopeful, and unreserved. The voice comes and goes, like a flashback after the night is over, powerful for a few moments, playing on a loop with psychedelic waves that swell and recede over a house beat. “Just Let It All Go” rounds things out, merging a chunkier rhythm section with hypnotic, shimmering synth arpeggiations and swirling strings. .

Full support.” ALTZ (Altzmusica) – “Original version feels so smooth.” Mason Rothert (Below Zero Radio Show) – “This will get the people movin’.” Steve ‘Griffo’ Griffiths (Freak Da Funk Radio Show) – “Old school vibed groover that brings to mind Adonis 'No Way Back' (from 3 decades ago!) with added early 90's deep tribal house feel.” .

JV featuring Quinton Xavier - Every Time (Harmonious Discord)
8DPromo

Coming Soon From Harmonious Discord: 1. Every Time 2. Every Time (Dorian Remix) 3. Every Time (Hands Free Remix) 4. Every Time (Hands Free Instrumental) . Everyday connections, moments in space and time. When you have a piece of my heart, it’s every time … Harmonious Discord Recordings is excited to welcome back soul-specialist JV (AKA Jason Vasilas) with “Every Time,” a special project featuring vocalist Quinton Xavier. The duo offer a modern-day love song filled with passion and emotion, and set to the rhythm of a well-tempered tech house production. The combination is likely to be coined an instant classic. Remixes come courtesy of the versatile HD veteran Dorian and Hands Free (Akbal, My Favorite Robot, Connoisseur). The original of “Every Time” presents a dreamy vision of poetic passion by balancing the vocals with thoughtfully constructed synthesizers and reversed effects. Frequencies swirl and build as Quinton’s vocals reach their peak and dulcet tones culminate with periodic fills to propel the momentum onward. Dorian’s remix wipes the dream-state away offering flavors of disco-era drums alongside classic house synths. Quinton’s vocals are in the forefront with penetrating vocal modulation. Musically rich and percussively precise, Dorian’s remix is poised to be a defining moment for mixed sets. Hands Free dives deep offering two versions of his subversive interpretation. Dissonant, unsettling sounds fill the cavernous space created by this slow burn. Hypnotic and ritualistic, the Hands Free mixes provide rumbling percussion and reverberated artifacts that cascade into pensive melodic harp accents and broad sweeping swells. There’s a mood for all occasions in this package. . Label and Artist Links: www.hdrecordings.com soundcloud.com/officialjv

8DPromo

Out Now on Viva Recordings: 1. Find A Way 2. Find A Way (Alt Broken Mix) 3. Downside Up . With a multi-page discography of releases dating back over 15 years, Demarkus Lewis is one of the hardest working men in house music, regularly adding to his diverse string of underground floor fillers. Mastering many house styles, Demarkus has released tech-house bombs on Nervous Records, soulful nuggets on Kingstreet Soundz, hypnotizing afro-rhythms on Slip n Slide, and everything in-between on his own Grin Music imprint. Demarkus now returns to Viva Recordings with “Find A Way,” his follow-up to 2016’s phenomenal “Self Is Steam.” “Find A Way” is a mesmerizing deep house cut built upon a shimmering motif of cut-up bell-like patterns over Demarkus’s punchy four-on-the-floor rhythm. Ethereal vocal snippets and echoed stabs playfully enter and exit the track, taking the listener on an evocative ride. Demarkus also provides an Alt-Broken Mix which transforms the straight rhythm into a subtle breakbeat and adds a few more melodic elements. Rounding out the single is the spacious bonus track “Downside Up.” Combing an old school Detroit-sensibility through Demarkus Lewis’s production prowess, the cut deftly mashes winding pads, bouncing snare fills, and splashes of truncated vocals into a sly house music jewel. . Giom (Supremus Records) – “The Broken mix is for me, very nice.” Michael Serafini (Gramaphone Records / Smart Bar) – “Nice work Demarkus! Both versions of Find A Way are solid.” Tyree Cooper (Chicago Vinyl Records) – “I’m feelin’ this EP. You can’t go wrong with Demarkus.” Henri Kohn (Conya / Cubstar) – “Great!

D.Dahlinger - Exquisite Spirits (Cold Busted)
8DPromo

Coming Soon From Cold Busted: 1. B 2. Too Many Delectable Things 3. Color Scheme 13 4. Wind Back Up 5. Anyone's Out-There 6. Mellolabye +5 more tracks on the full length album . Cold Busted presents Exquisite Spirits, the latest from D.Dahlinger, a self-described “Northern California-bred, Japan-based dusty dollar/yen bin loop digger.” The follow-up to 2016’s debut album Brisk Temps (and his appearance with Pigeondust on Cold Busted’s Only On Vinyl 2 compilation), Exquisite Spirits is another brilliant exercise in tough, boom-bap beats at meditative tempos and engaging sample source genre-clashes. D.Dahlinger’s influences are wide-ranging, with Paul’s Boutique and Paid In Full hotly tipped alongside psych-rock and shoegaze, as well as the attitudes of west coast skateboarding culture thrown in. A relocation to Japan also created noticeable inspiration, giving the music a wandering flavor that often feels like solemn exploration. A prime example of D.Dahlinger’s distinctive sound is the curiously titled “B,” which dreamily combines glistening harps, compressed vinyl noise, and lovely piano over a solid beat foundation. There’s also the pensive build of “Color Scheme 13,” with a gentle flute that deceptively calms the listener before the approaching sonic storm; the molasses intro of “Wind Back Up” which increases in tempo to reveal an intricate construction of samples and melody; and the deft trip hop thump of “Anyone’s Out There,” featuring layers of D.Dahlinger’s trademark hypnotic embellishments. Exquisite Spirits lives up its name, being both haunting and hard-to-ignore ... beats designed for the ages. . Robert Jan Meyer (Compost) – “Great downtempo exotica!” Azaxx (Tru Thoughts) – “I like the atmosphere of all the tracks. Good project with big influences. Delicious hip hop beats and amazing MPC/Sample spirit. Bravo!” Mr. Bristow (Subtek / Detox) – “Love this. Just up my street, and excellent quality.” Spike Deep (Rocka Fobic Music) – “This package is great. Chilled trip hop beats with jazz downtempo. Dope!” Rory Hoy (Howlin’ Records) – “Beautiful Hip-Hip instrumentals here.” Eric Tchaikovsky (Night Light Sound System Radio Show) – “Walking on clouds of atmospheric beats … it sound like that!” Hober Mallow (Mighty Reel, Sydney) – “Full support here, beautiful set of tunes.” Robert Lochmann (The Jazzmadass Radio Show) – “Another pristine downtempo release on Cold Busted. Summer Vibes!” Aja Allsop (Ketch A Vibe Radio Show) – “Some excellent tracks infused with the new experiences of real life. It's music from the soul. My favorite track is "Too Many Delectable Things" simply because I am a jazzier!” Floored Capri (Kane FM) – “Beautiful. Multilayered, snappily, crackly, poppy hip-hop goodness.

Legs 11 - The Rhythm (Scandolearic Mixes)- Beatservice Records
8DPromo

Out Now On Beatservice Records: 1. The Rhythm (Tom Dragebo Remix) 2. The Rhythm (Kellini Rett Hjem Remix) 3. The Rhythm (Third Attempt Remix) 4. The Rhythm (Kellini Skrangledisco Remix) . Oslo’s Legs 11 lend “The Rhythm” — a stand-out track from their recent album Another Wave — to delicious remix treatments from the crème de la crème of the current Norwegian house scene. Legs 11 is a cool live band with roots in electronic music, known for exchanging instruments and vocals in the middle of sets inspired by new wave, post-punk, and the edges of house music. “The Rhythm” is a track ripe for remixing, with a delirious vocal hook and energy that glows brighter than the Norwegian summer sunshine. With only a few rare 12”s for Cleanroom and Southside Shuffle, Tom Dragebo is a hidden gem in the Norwegian scene. He makes an inspired reappearance for the first remix on the single, fashioning “The Rhythm” as a building, volcanic dance floor workout featuring wild stereo-bouncing synth pulses. Kellini (Midnight Riot, Disco Fruit), a fresh, rising name in Norway’s house scene, is next with his Rett Hjem Remix. The Italo-influenced bass line means business here, as do the heaps of low end and addictive drum drive. Tromsø’s Third Attempt, one of the newer Beatservice acts, take “The Rhythm” in a moodier direction. The crisp production and dubbed out vibe create a captivating atmosphere that compliments the original. Kellini returns to close out the single with the bonus Skrangledisco Remix. This is a tongue-in-cheek tribune to the original ‘scandolearic’ disco popularized by the likes of Bjørn Torske and Rune Lindbæk. Cheeky or not, it’s a late night disco monster worthy of DJ play around the globe. . Nick Warren (The Soundgarden) – “Lovely release. The Kellini Rett Hjem Remix is the one for me.” Rory Hoy (Howlin’ Records) – “Great track. Tom Dragebo’s remix does it for me with it’s Acid House Awesomeness!” Jon Fugler (Fluke) – “This is truly the track that keeps on giving … mint!” Chris Massey (Paper Recordings) – “That remix by Tom Dragebo is HOT!

All of the remixes are exciting and catchy, and I like them a lot.” Stereo 77 (Plimsoll Records) – “Fantastic Remixes.” Alinep (Asia Music) – “Tom Dragebo’s remix is top.” Salvatore Logicfusion (Deepinradio) – “Hot grooves for the dancefloor.” Zach Van Lue (91X) – “Sick! My favorite track from the album, so I’m stoked to have remixes.” Belabouche (Midnight Riot) – “Yeah! The Kellini Skrangledisco Remix is cool.” Jarle Bråthen (Full Pupp) – “Great stuff!

Pretty Chief Records and The Mange Le Funk Collective are back with another high quality house music single featuring the sweet soulful voice of the amazing Anna-Marie Johnson. The finest soulful house label on England’s southern coast, Pretty Chief Records has been going strength-to-strength with releases from the core label family of Suff Sakoor (AKA DJ Suff) and Maurice Bird (AKA Beathaven) who, together, form Mange Le Funk.

The single launches with a remix from another member of the Pretty Chief family, Richie Blax. His version is an uplifting vocal soiree, incorporating UK garage-inspired beats, funky disco flavors, and melancholic undertones. DJ Suff then lends his own potent re-rub, the SS Old Skool Ivory Mix. It’s a veritable soul shakedown, featuring sweet, sultry orchestral strings, quirky piano licks, funky guitar, and the emotive vocal from Anna-Marie. The single closes with Maurice Bird’s Beathaven Remix which introduces a touch of funky tech. This mix has an essence of early ‘90s dub house, Latin-tinged percussive beats, and a deep, resonating body-shaking bass line. “Need The Funk” is the soulful business! . Lenny Fontana (Ministry of Sound) – “The Richie Blax Mix is a real classic.” Craig Stewart (DCSTrax) – “All mixes are very strong.

Jeffrey Tice - Chromatic (Harmonious Discord)
8DPromo

Out Now On Harmonious Discord: 1. Chromatic 2. Haruspex 3. Once Again, My Friend 4. Once Again, My Friend (PointBender Remix) 5. Last Dance For Dionysus . For many people, the rich tapestry we experience is a mixture of shades, hues, and palates that paint a vibrant and ever-changing outlook of our world and its changes. For Jeffrey Tice much of that tapestry is undefined. Born color blind, Jeffrey interprets art through a restricted lens. That has not stopped him from loving and appreciating the diversity of the world. Jeffrey’s music bursts with color, defying uniformity. A mainstay on the Harmonious Discord imprint, Jeffrey’s sound has evolved to encompass his many years of experience living in Austin and San Francisco, within two of the most vibrant music communities in the country. Chromatic is a five-selection project that weaves through intricate shapes and colors with common uplifting themes and progressions. Chromatic lifts spirits and moves feet with perfectly tempered, well-intentioned grooves. Jeff decided to use a TB-303 throughout most of the EP, carefully distinguishing its use in each selection. In “Chromatic,” the 303 sits on top of perfectly placed melodies and collides with ever-ascending energy. “Haruspex” opens with dulcet synths and quickly drops into a proper dance floor rhythm. Tones rumble and dance as the song builds. Keeping the vibe light but the precision exact, “Haruspex” drives us deeper into the chromatic scape. “Once Again, My Friend” changes the mood with a rough-edged acid creeper. Packed with intensity and nostalgia-inspired vocal work Jeff offers a driving rendition certain to spark foot movement. Label front-man PointBender joins the project to offer a different take on the acid journey. In normal ‘bender fashion, the remix offers similar roughness with a smooth interplay of bass and synthesizer construction. The remix culminates in a melodic reprise of colliding synthesis amid blurred vocal abstraction and driving percussion. “Last Dance for Dionysus” closes the EP with class. Percussion-filled and west-coast inspired, this selection brings the fresh waves of the bay to the listener. . Nick Warren (The Soundgarden / Hope Recordings) – “Chromatic is a wicked track, and I’m digging the PointBender remix as well.” Taigo Onez (Bang Le’ Dex Radio Show) – “This is sooo nice! Haruspex is my favorite, although I love the full release. This is a beautiful body of work.” Tyler Stadius (Deepsite) – “Love the acid!” Matt Prehn (Oh So Coy) – “There’s something catchy about Chromatic, fresh take for sure.” Miles Buckingham (Radioactive FM) – “Finely textured and propulsive.” Sumsuch (Colour and Pitch) – “Last Dance For Dionysus is the cut!” Simon Kirk (Stag Beetle Radio Show) – “Loving the sonic diversity of this release with Chromatic and the PointBender remix topping my chart.” Jeannie Hopper - (WBAI FM) – “Excellent sonics on this release, Wow! I’m loving Chromatic and Haruspex.” Jennifer Kyle (Radioactive FM, Wellington) – “Awesome bit of Acid, great release all around.” Hober Mallow (Mighty Reel show) – “Beautiful EP, I love the flow and emotion of it, especially on Chromatic.

Alex Kolodziej - Workaholic (forTunea)
8DPromo

Out Now On forTunea: 1. Workaholic 2. Slacker Attitude 3. Slacker Attitude (Peletronic's Late Night Dub) . Alex Kolodziej, a German with Polish roots, now firmly based in Vienna, has been one of the most in-demand techno and house DJs in the Austrian capital since the early 2010s. With a limited number of productions released to the public, Alex’s DJ sets have been the main avenue for others to hear his tracks. Now Alex has revealed a crucial three track single for the forTunea label. Leading with “Workaholic”, the release quickly establishes a hallucinatory deep house vibe, thanks to the pulsing bass drone and enigmatic spoken vocal that open the track. Crisp percussion and building melodies develop throughout the dream-like affair without ever losing grasp of the dance floor. “Slacker Attitude” gets into down-and-dirty territory, introducing a throbbing, funky bass line under the cut’s slinky tempo. Strange vocals pop in and out, and various treatments and tone splashes imply a covert operation in progress. Viennese DJ/producer Peletronic (Hungarian Hot Wax, Underluxe Records) provides a spacey remix of “Slacker Attitude" to close the single, showcasing strategically placed sonic hits and flourishes that compliment the steadily reverberating pad and insistent kick drum. Late night satisfaction guaranteed. . Dean Facer (Resident Advisor) – “Very nice indeed!” Chris Udoh (Tigerhook) – “That (Peletronic) late night dub though!” Tony H (Viva Recordings) – “I really dig the Workaholic track.” Simon G (Volcano Radio) – “I love Workaholic’s bumping, heavy bass line. Winner!” Larry Tee (Carnage Music) – “Hot one!” Makossa (Makossa & Megablast) – “Some solid tracks here.” Jamie Topham (CD Pool UK) – “Cool production across the whole EP. Peletronic’s Late Night Dub of Slacker Attitude grabbed my attention the most on here though.” Greg Fenton (Magazine Sixty / DMC Magazine) – “Good Dub by Peletronic.” Andrew Duke (Andrew Duke in the Mix) – “I’m very impressed with this label.” DJ Tronic (Dancefloor Mayhem Blog) - “Really like the Late Night Dub. Will play on my radio show.“ .

Mustafa Akbar - Get Down Wit It (Super Hi-Fi Recordings)
8DPromo

Out Now On Super Hi-Fi Recordings: 1. Get Down Wit It 2. Get Down Wit It (Qdup Remix) 3. Get Down Wit It (AGFA Remix) 4. Get Down Wit It (Deela Remix) . On the distant planet Funkatron a man was born to the cosmos under the name Mustafa Akbar. His voice is reminiscent of an amalgamation of several classic funk icons, like George Clinton and Gil Scott Heron, yet he’s distinctly fresh. Mustafa has been featured on tons of releases, such as Fort Knox Five’s “Funk 4 Peace”, on solo projects, and with various bands for nearly twenty years. Mustafa Akbar is a true musician, living and breathing funk into the world every single day. “Get Down Wit It”, Mustafa Akbar’s new single on Super Hi-Fi Recordings, is a fully pumping party inside a straight-forward, funky dance tune. Co-written by Tony Ozier and featuring Pete James on guitar, Art Dixie on synth bass, Farnell Newton on trumpet, and Kyle Molitor on trombone –along with additional production from All Good Funk Alliance’s Frank Cueto – the groove builds up and sustains nicely. Like Mustafa says in the intro of the song, “I need dancers tonight”! Qdup (ESL Music, Bombstrikes) drives his remix toward a more heavy electronic route, yet keeps the heart and soul of the original intact. All Good Funk Alliance make the horn lines shine as they contribute an electro-disco boogie vibe to this party. Deela – the latest project from the creative mind behind Kabanjak and Ancient Astronauts – strips back the song’s feel and delivers a percussive afrobeat-electro remix. Mustafa Akbar’s “Get Down Wit It” refreshingly upfront and fun, sure to inspire good times in the boogie zone. Ten thousand DJs agree: dance music needs more songs like this! . Ursula 1000 (Insect Queen Music) – “This is hitting all the right buttons. Boogie meets Minneapolis funk meets some Mothership madness!” Double-D (Funky Fresh Radio Show) – “Super dope! Super Hi-Fi’s funk is back again with a great funky banger.” Quincy Jointz (Timewarp Music Radio Show) – “Awesome EP. All versions are rocking.” Graham Scullin (The Back Room) – “Funky as heck. The drums on the original are spectacular.” Dogu (Ancient Astronauts) – “I’ve always loved the voice of Mustafa Akbar. The Deela Remix levels it to another afro dimension!” Aja Allsop (Ketch A Vibe Radio Show) – “If this does not make your shake your stuff and give you a huge smile, you must be dead!” Soul of Man (Finger Lickin’ Records) – “Authentic FONK! Great mixes, it’s hard to pick a favorite.” Sleazy McQueen (Whiskey Disco) – “So damn funky!” Morphosis (The Hong Kong Ping Pong Club) – “Some proper funky business right here. The remixes are top notch as well.” misterG (Green Arrow Radio Show) – “I’ll get down, but I’m not sure I’ll stop … the remixes are taking over!” Available Now From Bandcamp: https://is.gd/H1scZB Juno Download: https://is.gd/b4966e iTunes: https://is.gd/0lTnQs and Spotify: https://is.gd/MifP5x Label and Artist Links: soundcloud.com/super-hi-fi-recordings www.facebook.com/mustafa.akbar2

Emapea - Zoning Out Volume 1 (Cold Busted)
8DPromo

Out Now On Cold Busted: 1. Check It Out 2. Motion 3. 99 4. Downtown 5. Daydreaming 6. Chillin Hard + 15 more tracks on the full length album. . Emapea, the renowned beat-maker from Poland, burst upon the scene with multiple compilation appearances on Cold Busted, an inclusion on Mark Farina’s Mushroom Jazz 8, and his stunning debut album Seeds, Roots & Fruits. Fans and headz worldwide have been clamoring for a follow-up, but all Emapea wanted to do was just ‘zone out.’ And that’s what happened, with the release of Emapea’s twenty song album Zoning Out, Volume 1. Emapea’s cuts are meant for the listener to get lost in – but they’re not only for chilling, or when deep in thought, but also for getting in that crucial head-nod zone, like when the DJ drops the dopest beat. Expertly crafted and sequenced, the album presents a boom-bap journey that’s dreamy and spacey while remaining tough and jazzy. “Check It Out” exemplifies the mood with its smooth drums, chiming keys, subtle sax riffs, and hip hop shout-outs. The vibe expands on “Motion”, adding an exotic, worldly flavor to the seductively loping rhythm. And “Classy” features a smokey saloon piano melody that cruises smugly out of jeep-beat speakers. This track was recently featured on a limited postcard record, mailed surreptitiously to lucky Emapea supporters. Zoning Out, Volume 1 defines Emapea as an artist to watch on the international beat scene. Pay attention as Volume 2 will be continuing the journey in later months. . Mr. Bristow (Subtek / Detox) – “Some really nice joints on this – great work!” Danny Ward (Moodymanc) – “Lovely, gritty deep beats.” Rusty (Funk Weapons / All Good Funk Alliance) – “Nice groove here. Love the laidback feel and piano plonks. Reminds me of something Mo-Wax would have dropped back in the day.” Double-D (Funky Fresh Radio Show) – “Crackles like fire!” Stereo 77 (Plimsoll Records) – “I’ll be headphone vibing this all day!” Aja Allsop (Ketch A Vibe Radio Show) – “Stunning jazzy beats. I cannot find a weak track on here.” Laurent N. (House Nation Radio) – “Beautiful release with TOP stuff from Emapea.” Yogi Haughton (DJ Magazine) – “This is great. Good for bars and early sessions.” Eric Tchaikovsky (Night Light Sound System Radio Show) – “Love from the first note.” DJ Osric (Black and Blue Show – Perth) – “Brilliant release from Emapea, this has me totally zoned out. Can't get bored listening to smooth production and mellow but banging beats like this. Looking forward to part 2!” .

Adam Nathan - Soulmachine (Viva Recordings)
8DPromo

Out Now On Viva Recordings: 1. Soulmachine 2. Us and Them 3. Coda . Adam Nathan is a London-born, Toronto-raised DJ and producer quickly making a name for himself on the global deep house scene. Previously collaborating under various monikers and part of Toronto’s influential Release Records crew, Adam is now unveiling potent solo tracks under his name. This new EP for Viva Recordings, titled Soulmachine, has the well-honed sound of a studio veteran, with a smooth, warm sound and emotive passages. Adam’s roots as a drummer come through with the stripped down emphasis on rhythm, while melodic flourishes and dynamic builds play masterfully on top. The EP opens with ”Soulmachine”, featuring dramatic piano chords and a fine, pulsating kick drum. The cut builds in a mesmerizing fashion, ending in a beautifully atmospheric breakdown. “Us and Them” gets into even deeper territory, full of synth pad transmissions, shimmering sonics, and the stirring, echoing speech that enters near the halfway point. “Coda”, directly inspired by the legendary nightclub of the same name, closes things out with a classic feel. Drawing upon the deepest influences of ‘90s house music, “Coda” is dreamy, multilayered treat for the latest of nights and the most intimate of dance floors. . Andrew Emil (Broadway & Wilson) – “Super quality vibes! Thanks for this great EP.” Rory Cochrane (Deep Site Recordings) – “Absolute deep house masterpiece. Great EP, I’m loving all 3 tracks, full support!” DJ Firefly (Couch Dancing) – “Delightfully deep.” Ollie Blackmore (Soul Heaven) – “Nice vibes on all tracks. I can especially see me playing Us and Them at Sunset in Ibiza.” DJ P-REZ (Not So Fast Records) – “Wow! This whole EP is absolutely brilliant. Looking forward to hearing this out loud, excellent work.” Efrain Navarro (E’Club Ibiza) – “Amazing tracks with good sounds.” Kiyo To (Kanzen Records) – “This is really refreshing.” Scheibosan (Shanti Roots) – “Well produced, sounds very good.” Simon Kirk (Stag Beetle radio show) – “Seriously hot release – 3 deep house weapons!” Steve ‘Griffo’ Griffiths (Freak Da Funk radio show) – “Very nice deep/tech vibes going on here, standout for me is ''Us And Them'' with its Detroit techno styled pads and 80's keyboard flourishes. ''Soulmachine'' has a more summery feel with its laid back groove. ''Coda'' is well produced with an early 90's feel to it.” .
