This time around I’ll not only write about one of our own label releases, as if that wasn’t biased enough.
Oh no, I’ll trump that now with a blog post about my own EP, released just yesterday.
So I just as well tagged this one as a PROMO in the headline right away. At least I’m transparent about it. 😀 Continue reading PROMO: Atroxity – “Cult Of The Scarab”
If it’s one thing I’ve discovered while writing for this blog, it’s that I really am quite easy to charm. Annoyingly easy.
And here’s another track that really is just plain CUTE. Continue reading Sky Civilian – “Alone”: The pink soap bubble machine got me
Time to again enjoy the calm, classy house beats. These two fine tracks go well together.
They not only could, but SHOULD be played in any lounge area worth visiting. Continue reading Down-tempo midweek: Two classy house tracks
“House”. A main genre so wide that it almost becomes a synonym for “music”. Oh come on, it’s pretty darn close. I must have reviewed a hundred tracks now, most of them some sort of variant of house, and still not touched one of the major house flavours: Soul/Disco house. Continue reading Conrad Clifton, “Neva Seen (A Broken Heart)”: If this is a breakup, I wanna get broken
Deep, groovy, underground… The bassline rolls and rolls and rolls, spinning up that hypnotic state we all love to enter.
This is exactly thet stuff we originally set out to uncover when this blog were started. Continue reading Sasch BBC & Caspar, “Inside”: It’s house music!
Here’s a track that’s clearly flirting with the techy side of house, and a really good jam it is also. Cause that’s what it sounds like, an electronic jam session.
Repetitive, sure, but all thanks to the various filters and little details along the way, delicately sprinkled to give us an almost organic experience and because the hook itself is just so darn catchy, it doesn’t become repetitious. Just groovy. So perfect. Continue reading Parsifal, “Still Alive”: Jamming with the best
Here’s a track so satisfyingly unpretentious, so charmingly shallow, a track that only sets out to move our asses. A basic progression is done throughout the track, but in essence it stays the same.
The audio image is not overloaded with all sorts of details, it’s the beat track, a bass line, and spice on top. Classic club track formula. Continue reading M3DIUM – “Saturn Funk”: When the shit hits the funk
A house track built for the clubs. It’s clearly well prepared for DJs. A base to build upon. It deserves to be part of something bigger, a set where it forms a link in the chain. That’s where this track would really shine.
Not to say it doesn’t stand on its own. It does! Continue reading Branz, “I Will”: A will to repeat
This track feels a bit like riding a stock car. It barely holds together, in a rather charming way. You do bite your teeth and prepare yourself for the possible sudden disintegration. But it doesn’t, and you cross the finishing line with a grin on your face. Continue reading Growing Boy – Ooo Boi: A Late Grower
