John Talabot – fin

9 Feb

Where the boundaries between Disco/House, Indie-Pop and Electronic music become fluid, comes John Talabot’s debut album for German dancefloor institution, Permanent Vacation. The Spanish native has followed a steady consistency since first appearing on the scene in 2009 with ‘My Old School’, followed by sought-after aces on Hivern Disc and Young Turks, his debut single “Matilda’s Dream” plus a stack of remixes for everyone from Teengirl Fantasy to The xx. His first LP, fin, is a distillation of his defined tastes, weaving nine tracks which could easily fit into any of the categories above, but essentially just do their own thing, very stylishly.

Have a listen to the two singles “So Will Be Now…” and “Destiny”, both featuring Madrid’s producer/singer Pional:

If you like it, I suggest the download of his latest mix for FACT magazine, with an atmospherically fluid and disco-kissed vibe here.

Torquato & Boghosian EP

21 Nov

Pitchpie proudly presents an album that was born in Brazil and made entirely by DJs and producers André Torquato & Paulinho Boghosian. Osunlade was the Executive Producer of this amazing work, worthy of our best critics. The tracks are being sold at Beatport and iTunes Store.

A little something about it:

Yoruba Records proudly presents Torquato & Boghosian. The first full length project from Torquato, this time alongside his newfound partner in crime, Boghosian. Since the success of the Niente Ep release, the two hailing from Brazil decided to create a full length to express the soulful, spitirual, artistic expression and love of african percussion and old school house mixed with more modern electronic timbres and vocals which at times are mere whispers, at times poems. With this project the duo went deep into their influences from deep house to world music in the attempt to translate their musical roots of brazil and beyond. We hope get in touch with the innermost and intimate feelings this album transmits to the soul.

Damian Lazarus finds Get Lost 4

11 Aug

Besides being the classic DJ/producer duo, he is mostly known for being Crosstown Rebels’ trendy label big boss. Also, he mixed one of my favourite Fabric Series albums. Damian Lazarus is a massive name when it comes to house music nowadays. Now, he releases the 4th in the Get Lost DJ Mix series. This double vinyl sampler features five of the unreleased tracks made exclusively for this album. What i liked the most is the diversity : is features exclusive tracks from Chillean Techno heroine Dinky, to Berlin Legend Acid Paul, Barraca Music Dana Ruh, Guti’s cohort Shiva and Lithuanian groovesters Mario & Vidis.

The Get Lost series attempts to capture the magic of Crosstown’s own Get Lost parties on CD. Previous Get Lost series featured albums by Jamie Jones & Dinky. Jamie’s had good reviews as usual. Have a listen:

Art Department “The Drawing Board”

6 Jun

Kenny Glasgow and Johnny White despite being close friends and stalwarts in the Toronto electronic music scene for years, had not joined forces in the studio until only as recently as 2009, when Damian Lazarus called on them to remix Riz MC for his prestigious Crosstown Rebels Label. The result was an entirely new sound that drew cues from the best of both artists. It was a futuristic and raw, synth-driven, underground masterpiece, the start of a new idea and the birth of Art Department.

The latest album from the canadian deep house duo, The Drawing Board, features 11 tracks wich you can preview right here, right now. Enjoy:

Maya Jane Coles “Focus Now” EP

13 May

There are very few artists who have made as much impact in such a short space of time as Maya Jane Coles.  At only 23 years old she has burst the deep house scene far beyond UK frontiers. The front cover of the latest Mixmag is a statement that the kiddo who was first known for her “Humming Bird” chill-out EP is providing the world the most amazing music. Her DJ sets are also pretty amazing, have a listen to this.

Having already released works of art on labels like Mobilee, Hypercolour, Crosstown Rebels, Defected and Real Tone, her newest EP is comming out this monday (may 16th) through 2020Vision records. Entitled “Focus Now” it features 4 tracks. My favourite is cool sexy “Spaceless” but here’s all four of them, so you can have your own pick. Enjoy:
