De Fantastiske To - Smile - Paper ecordings PAPDLS173

Well Well ... must be about time i put pen to paper again ... excuses the pun .. its been a long cold winter inside the DSA camp .. New Zealand is on the warm up much like me again with my reviewing ..... Labels that love me .. Thanks for staying around and keeping the music fresh and digi crate full ..
Starting things back off again we have a seminal 3 tracker from Paper Recordings Digital label, supporting all good things that come from the north we have Norway's De Fantastiske  who brings use smooth silky house that crosses between funky and deep Adding spicy elements to each of the tracks .
Track 1 Kodenavn Syden has a silky swirling set of crisp mids that tie nicely in with a deep dubby bass line. Lush comes to mind as a single word to represent this track ...
Paper Recordings words on the track
"Kodenavn Syden kicks things off with 909 / 808 drums, a two line bass and lush chords. Coming on like a Nu Groove classic, an arp weaves its way round the soulful grooves and the result is house music that has quality running though it like a stick of Bergen rock. If they have rock." 

Track 2 - Smile. Starts with more of the same dubby bassline supporting the old school vibe of New York . Including a sick vocal that draws people in deeeper & deeper to the jazzy riffs building in to an awesome set starter.
"Smile is percussion heavy with jazzy Rhodes and a deep American voice extolling the virtues of positivity. Summoning the spirit of Marshall Jefferson’s Open Your Eyes there’s a preset sax playing the top line and it’s the sound of a lost classic from back in the day."

Track 3 - Dragsug. Kicking off with low slung kinky slap bass line this tunes turns my ears on ! synth lines intertwining with crisp punchy mids. Nice classic keyboard stabbs elevate the outlook. For me this is the 1 .. Killer groove ! 
"Dragsug slows things down but finds a killer groove with a live bass and hypnotic feel that builds before synth keys give it the hook Layers of strings are then added as the track finds its way to dance floor heaven."

As ever this make for another essential listen and will be getting splashed all through my summer sets hear in New Zealand ... Thanks Paper
Also for all you web shoppers have a look at the great range of merch that they have and get suited and booted whilst your listening to some sounds

Dope 5 track release.Zurich Bonny & Clyde deliver smart seductive beats for the dance floor. 90 classic house grooves kicked around chunky bass lines and crisp fresh productions. On remix we have Highlive who delivers a bubbly rumbling tune.

02. That is That is (HighLive Remix)
03. U Can Have (Original Mix)
04. Lovestick (Original Mix)
05. Just do it (Original Mix) 
 Press Words 
"Zurich duo Bonny & Clyde built on chunky electro basses, sharp minor key
stabs, rolling percussion and laboured pads. The deep tech burns in a Slo Mo cosmo on dark kicks and noir synths. The release is mainly Tech-House, more melodic in 'Just Do It', deeper by 'Lovestick', 90s style in 'That is That is', groovy by 'U Can Have'. HighLive (Miniload Records) are delivering an hypnotic Remix of 'This Is That Is' introducing a warm groovy bass line and
some deep catchy chords, which will bring your feet to dance. Re-pitching the vocals brought as well a different taste to the track. Surround yourself in sound with Bonny & Clyde debut release on MothLab Recordings."

Endemic Digital Dec Round Up 2013

Endemic Digital have a sweet line up ready for release this December .. We have 4 ep this being the first. Stefan Kaye has had many recent hits recently through many respectable dance labels. Again hear we get to delve deep in to the production mind of a talented player. 4 originals that all feature light uplifting piano cords. The essence of the ep for me feels very 4am. Uplifting with chunky undertones the beats get jazzy and classy on my fav Warriors Path.
Aras Zemaitis - Trouble Calls Stupid EP

2 nice prog based tunes that will rubmle in the big rigs this festie season for me. The Ep is presented to by Aras Zemaitis a very talented producer getting props in the scene from some A List DJ. Trouble Calls Stupid has swirling synths on top a deep growling bassline. Pure has bubbly synths at the start to draw you deeper in to the fabric of the track. Keeping the beats smooth the arpeggiated bassline builds nicely. Pure is my pick of the 2 .

Release: Dec 16 2013
Label: Endemic Digital

Stefan Kaye - The Quest LP
Long Player coming in early January from Endemic family member Stefan Kaye. Hear we get to go deep in to the mind of the producer. Tracks range from a late night rub down on Impulsed . to the more subtle sounds of Love Goes On. With this being what must have been a very busy year for Stefan 2013 we are lucky enough to have the smooth production skills . Other tunes that stand out for me are The Quest with its crisp snappy mids that meld in to a deep house bassline.

Lee Pennington - Earthworm Dancing EP

Monsieur Minimal : 'Summer Lovers ' (HawaiiaN Boy Rmx ) 

Lovely drifting 80's inspired house sounds from Hawaiian Boy . Hawaiian Boy has featured on many of the releases this end of the year ..on the down low this is Sugar Hill & Wasabi monike

These beats are well suited at the side of the pool when the sun sets and the cocktails start to roll . A very impressive start to the production teams session and we look forward to more from them next year.

Haze-M: 'Miss My Love'

Rounding off the year we have a deep late night tune. Succulent vocal wrapped tightly in to a sweet euro beat of deep house. Pushing you towards the speakers the homely warmth of the synths makes a righteous way to end the year.
