Gregory Porter-Liquid Spirit (Remix) (GREGORY001)



Promo Use Only. Enjoy! Support the artists and buy more vinyls!



Tracks: 
A1 Liquid Spirit (Claptone Remix)

Genre: House
Release Year: 2015
Label: White Label
Country: Unknown
More: 12'' Vinyl, One-Sided, 45rpm
Not a fan of pop music and commercial sounds, but this 12'' contains a crowd pleasing house remix of Gregory Porter's superb soul anthem "Liquid Spirit". The track builds from the stripped back opening as filtered piano chords top a metronomic house beat. A swooshing white noise sweep takes us into the breakdown where Gregory's lyrics take centre stage, his vocal building into the triumphant chorus before the beat comes back in hard and heavy, blowing the club away. You need it in your bag!

S.A.M-Marabouda EP (OSC001)



Promo Use Only. Enjoy! Support the artists and buy more vinyls!




Tracks:
A1 Marabouda
A2 Storm Refuge
B1 Decoy
B2 Bahia

Genre: Deep-House
Release Year: 2014
Label: Oscillat Music
Country: France
More: 12'' EP, 180 Gram Vinyl, 33rpm
"Oscillat Music" is dedicated to house and techno music releases with a dubby flavor. This first EP is an example of just that. After releasing on labels like "Fathers & Sons", "Delaphine" and "Subwax", "S.A.M" turns now to a slightly more traditional 909 based sound adding his own touch. 
The EP starts off with the title track "Marabouda". 10 minutes packed with evolving melodies, male whispers and a 909 groove that will get the floor going. "Storm Refuge" is sounding exactly like that - a quiet solitary place during a storm. The track begins with fat dub chords and long bassnotes sneaking into the soundscape. Then, after a while we hear some sparse 808 patterns introducing a groove and putting the dub sounds into a groove. 
On the flip we have "Decoy" going first, with soft chords setting the vibe in the intro with some vocal FX introducing the verse sung by a male vocal. The track builds with the chords opening up and a bassline melody is introduced halfway through adding to the track a nice gimmick. Last track "Bahia" is a club groover with a simple powerful groove, pad with lots of tension and a melodic bassline forming the theme!

Closed Paradise-The Distance Between EP (KLRLTD020)



Promo Use Only. Enjoy! Support the artists and buy more vinyls!




Tracks:
A1 Planets
A2 Planets (Brame + Hamo Remix)
B1 Tunnels
B2 Moelleuz (Closed Paradise + Journey Reverse)

Genre: Deep-House
Release Year: 2015
Label: Kolour Limited
Country: US
More: 12'' Vinyl, EP, 33rpm
Following recent impressive outings on "Above Machine", "Whiskey Disco" and soon "Diggin' Disco Deep", "Mathieu Cle" once again dons the "Closed Paradise" guise, this time for "Kolour Ltd". Opener "Planets" sets the tone, delivering a warm and dreamy blend of fluttering chords, stretched-out build-ups and rolling grooves. "Brame & Hamo" deliver a sunnier, more obviously soulful take on the same track - complete with what sound like a few live instrumental flourishes - before Cle drops the locked-in, bass-heavy chug of "Tunnels". Finally, he joins forces with "Journey Reverse" on "Moelleuz", actually my favourite of the EP. It's all about a loose, soulful and woozy jam that benefits greatly from an ultra-dreamy breakdown and some choice vocal samples!

Dimitri From Brooklyn-Edits Part 2 (RNT012)



Promo Use Only. Enjoy! Support the artists and buy more vinyls!




Tracks:
A1 Right My File
B1 I Want Your Back

Genre: Disco/Edits
Release Year: 2015
Label: Razor-N-Tape
Country: UK
More: 12'' Vinyl, 45rpm
Suave Parisian scalpel-botherer "Dimitri From Paris" continues to churn out top notch re-edits, slightly altering his famous production persona from label to label. Here, he delivers a second 12" for "Razor 'N Tape" under the "Dimitri From Brooklyn" alias. Like its' predecessor, it features a couple of stone cold bangers. "Right My File" offers a thunderous, housed-up take on a lesser-known cover version of Dan Hartman's grandiose disco smasher "Relight My Fire" - all vocal breakdowns, big builds and big-lunged sing-along moments. As for "I Want Your Back", Dimitri lays down a version of The Jacksons' "I Want You Back" that sounds like it was done from the multi-track parts. It is, of course, dance floor dynamite!

VA-Editor's Kutz # 6 (EDITORSKUTZ006)



Promo Use Only. Enjoy! Support the artists and buy more vinyls!



Tracks:
A1 VinylAddicted & Sleazy McQueen-Free (From Social Narcotics)
A2 Ed Wizard & Disco Double Dee-Stellar Dub
B1 The Silver Rider-Good Luvin' Baby
B2 Doc Jam-In Your Eyes

Genre: Disco/Edits
Release Year: 2015
Label: Editor's Kutz
Country: UK
More: 12'' Green Vinyl, EP, Limited 500 Copies, 33rpm
It's been two years - more or less - since the debut release of "Editor's Kutz" and the label proudly presents its sixth installment right on summertime. Starting things off with a duo working really effectively lately, the label head "VinylAddicted" and the "Whiskey Disco" boss "Sleazy McQueen". Their "Free (From Social Narcotics)" has not only a powerful and acid message, but also a rolling beat and juicy bassline, frenzy looped keys and raw strings. True dopamine! Kinjo Music's kid, "Ed Wizard & Disco Double Dee", comes up next with a "Stellar Dub", a mid-tempo groover accompanied by a sweet trumpet and brass, fluffing the track with a very cosmopolitan style!
Flip-side belongs to the label newcomers. First "The Silver Rider" uses his disco skills on a little known track. "Good Luvin' Baby" has that fatty and hearty beat, which in addition to the lazy guitars and female vocals is perfectly made for sun and sand dancing! Last but not least, "Doc Jam" samples a beloved disco hymn, lifting it to a more disco-house and bouncing level. Pressed on a chillin', double mint opaque wax, facing already huge support by many artists, with "Dimitri From Paris" included amongst them. 500 copies only!
