Sudio – Soulstrip

A smooth release of three tracks. This reminds me of cold winter days in a quiet spot in the woods, with leaves silently falling around and sunlight streaming through the tree tops. You know, one of those strange, quiet experiences we all have from time to time that is just between us an nature. Sudio captures all that and somehow puts it into a set of house tracks that is guaranteed to get your toe tapping. Subdued drum beats that glitch out from time to time. Mellow strings fading in and out. Deep basslines to rumble your speakers. Blipping synths like popcorn in your ears. Check this one out.

DAMOHL33 – ULTRA EP

From the excellent Italian netlabel Deep In Dub comes the artist calling himself Damohl33. His release Ultra EP is a classic example of a house record, polished to the max and adeptly crafted. Only four tracks, but coming in at twenty three minutes long, Ultra is the perfect blend of deep basslines, syncopated melody and repetetive, grooving synth lines that define house music. Be sure to add this release to your collection.

gradient – seashore

Well, finally after two days of trying, I’ve managed to post this. Seems WordPress puked and died on me a few days ago, so I decided to go ahead and upgrade to the latest version but it required the database to be at 4.1 or higher and of course – it was at 4.0. Gotta love it.

So here is gradient, with a release titled seashore. Four tracks, totalling 23:15, of awesome deep house vibes. This release is so smooth, so calm and relaxing. If you liked cie – bonbon then this is another for your collection.

Kilowatts – Six Silicates

Kilowatts - Six SilicatesThis ‘jewel’ of an EP features a funky and upbeat set of six tracks. The first three tracks move you with staccato melodies that mix together to form a grandiose result of sound. At track four, it mellows out into a beautiful mesh of popping, clicking, almost glitch like rhythmic air. Track five picks the pace back up with a sort of electro / distorted guitar sound, but without disturbing the overall ambience of the entire work. The EP finishes up with a dark, mysterious track named Kyanite, a sweet house tune that goes all over the map and has an almost cinematic quality to it. This is a definite fave for the year, don’t miss it.

Phvsr – Bassment

Phvsr - BassmentPhvsr offers us four tracks of well produced house music. Clocking in at just under half an hour, this release does what house music should do – get you moving. Good synth work, big fat square basses and grooving drum patterns all fit together snugly. I’m a big fan of beat drop outs and drop ins and syncopated basslines, and Phvsr definitely delivers with this release.
