Anthony Mea - Broken - UM Rrecords UMR031

Smooth seductive deep house is the name of the game and aim of Richie Hartness label. Based out of Wellington New Zealand hasn't stopped Richie representing the deep house sound on a globe level. This the 31st release comes from Anthony Mea (Spring Tube, Deep Site, Seta Label) -  Broken uses airy vocals that entice you in to the lush warm bass layers. Pure deep house working it's undeniable magic. I can see why Richie ears are used by thousands to get the lowdown on the deep house scene through his weekly UM Podcast. Many of the industry users and abuser also nod firmly to Richie's dry and uncensored understanding of how the scene ticks.

Anthony Mea 2nd track Destination elevates your soul through to the Iberica vibes that are all but a sunset in the eyes of many .Sophisticated, elegant and a very subtle early morning bumper makes for both originals a perfect tonic to an evening. Re mixers on this release come from Kurtz & City Soul Project.
Kurtz jazz's up the vibe aiming the low slung bassline at the floor. This one will get the evening pumping making the rig prick up it's ears. Not drifting to far from the essence of the original i think making a sweet remix. City Soul Project (iRecords, Kommunity, Kolour) aka Scott Harrington and Ryan Briggs take the track back to somewhere between a underground bunker in Detroit in the early 90's and a field in The UK where the like's of DIY taught us old school r's what house can and should be. Vocals in just the right places with a slightly more up beat sound letting the kicking bass line that drives - peaks and crescendos make us forget where and when we are in the life of a house track. Some serious sounds hear and a very warm welcome to City Soul Project lets hope Richie wraps up more of there sounds in a EP of there own . !

AM Version - For Our Love - Roam Recordings - RoM015

West coast label Roam Recordings are knocking at the door of the House DJ once again with more upfront sounds resonating from the USA. The beats are hazy and heady the sorta late summer grooves we expect to be getting from the lushed up San Frandisco crew. 3 originals that all have a subtle yet tempting essence to the sounds. For Our Love the title track has lush pads and a warm bassline making you want to wiggle . For the 2nd original we have I Called Isn't That Enough - this tune homes in on a techy synth line that drives the beats. Whimsical chimes and a deep emotive bass kicks in as the tune moves along making for a smoking late night bumper and my fav. Lastly for the originals we have Labyrinths & Canals a tune that takes a deeper more funkier edged route. With upbeat harpsichords and jiving driving basslines towing this along nicely. Making the ep we have a remix of For Our Love from Monty Luke. Monty works us slick 90's warehouse styled beat. Catchy dubbed out San Fran music introducing a warm vocal to the beat.
Hears one of Monty Luke recent mixes for your pleasure .. get you in the mood to trek off to the web stores on Nov 1st to get this release.
Roam Recordings Press Words 
"Roam Recordings is bringing another heavy dose of west coast vibes, this time from San Francisco’s Eric Kozak, recording under the name AM Version, with a remix by Black Catalog’s Monty Luke. The For Our Love EP is dirty and moody, crafted in an analog studio with the classic MPC–60 being the center of it all. The title track is reminiscent of a ’90s era basement love song featuring the in-demand and sultry voice of Alona as the object of desire. Monty Luke, a bay area transient and Detroit transplant, provides his Westcoastluvmix which adds bounce to the original with its ‘less is more’ approach and a seductively slinky after-hours feel. The curiously titled “I Called, Isn’t That Enough?” follows … it ebbs and flows, highlighted by a striking bass line and moments of infectious claps and some evocative elements carved straight out of the San Francisco fog. Completing the EP is “Labyrinths And Canals”, a Berlin-inspired piece that starts with a strange interlude before taking a gritty spiral into a synth abyss. The For Our Love EP, issued on vinyl as well as digital formats, has a distinctive range and timeless feel that makes it a release well-suited for DJs of many stripes. "

    Black Star Music Press Words 
    "These early releases grabbed the attention of the likes of Laurent Garnier, Hernan Cattaneo, James Zabiela, and Anthony Pappa. Now, Blue Bass sub-label Black Star Music unveils “Starchild,” which is firmly based around a deeper after- hours feeling. The five versions on this release embody a dubby techno project with synth stabs that carry their weight, sharp percussive rhythms, and a
    devastating low end beneath it all. The three alternative mixes deliver as advertised: the
    Tribal Dub Mix introduces exotic new drums, the Dubbed Mix removes the melody in lieu of a menacing bass-mimicking synth, and the Minimal Club Mix strips things down
    to the bare essentials. Graciously included is another take on the original, this time from Oslo-based producer and fellow Blue Bass Records artist Ivaylo. He adds to the dub foundation and breathes life into a simple, but funky bass line rift. Each effort is perfect for the after-hours, but don’t be late to this one!"

    Sisu Press Words.
     "Home’ is the new single from Maurice Aymard and Gui Boratto, and is the first release to be taken from Aymard’s forthcoming debut album ‘Between Stars’. An inspired collaboration between two of South America’s leading electronic music producers, ‘Home’ is the perfect introduction to one of the most sophisticated yet vibrant underground house albums of 2013.
    Released on Aymard’s own Galaktika Records (Garnica, James Teej & more), ‘Home’ was recorded
    during a flying visit to Barcelona by the Boratto, the Brazilian producer taxiing straight from the airport to Aymard’s studio for an intense 24-hour session. The result is a dreamy slice of laid back, late-night house music that floats along on a bed of languidly funky bass, soft pads and smoky keys.
    “I’ve known and been a huge fan of Gui for several years now. He released an EP on Galaktika way
    back in 2007 and remixed my own track, ‘Put Some For Jules’ in 2010, so when I was recording this
    album I knew I had to get him on it somehow.
    Luckily despite his crazy schedule we managed to get him to Barcelona We didn’t have much time, but got straight to work in the studio and well… It’s Gui, everything he touches is magic!”  – Maurice Aymard For the single release Aymard has also called upon the Berlin based British producer Jay Shepheard to remix the track and the result is a stunning deep house workout from the man, whose own debut album ‘Home & Garden’ was released to critical acclaim earlier this year.
    Since moving from Venezuela to Spain and launching Galaktika Records, Aymard has become an
    integral part of the European house music scene. With releases on the likes of Berlinʼs Moodmusic,
    Hamburgʼs Einmusika and Denmarkʼs Tic Tac Toe Records, and remix credits for artists such as Mario Basanov, Compuphonic and Combo, Aymard has built a reputation for delivering quality underground house music that has seen him booked to play clubs around the world, from Tokyo to Berlin, Brazil to Russia. More than two years in the making, ‘Between Stars’, Aymard’s debut artist album has been a labour of love for the Venezuelan. Recorded almost entirely live, Aymard travelled the world to collaborate with musicians and singers in Barcelona, Berlin, London and Venezuela who could help to bring his vision to life."
