Beating Heart – Afro Deep Vol. 1
Beating Heart – Afro Deep Vol. 1 is a new exploration of vintage recordings from 1950’s Tanzania. Featuring a selection of artists from Scotland and Ghana through to Finland, via London.
2Fox set the tone with the hotly anticipated ‘Lonzania’, a tried and tested dance-floor favourite that features the voices of the Hangaza women of Tanzania.
The Busy Twist provide a surprisingly spacious cut, ‘Wa Wa Wine’ is an intimate jam which oozes with late-night attitude, featuring Zongo Abongo on vocals.
Austin Ato features the Haya women of Tanzania in ‘Awakasi’. The traditional wailing is from a wedding procession song.
Boys Ride Bikes – ‘Resonate’ is an amalgamation of electronica that samples an otter hunting song from the Haya people. The enthusiastic cries of hunting dogs and the bells around their necks create a digital tapestry alongside futuristic synths and a dubbed out bassline.
Maajo’s tropical dub ‘Umefika’ features ancestral voices singing of arriving in ‘Marangu’ a small village on the lower slopes of Mount Kilimanjaro.
Slow Nomaden – Magic Carpet (Nu Boheme Records)
With the new Single “Magic Carpet” Slow Nomaden delivers an epic 7 minute Electronica track inspired by the fairy tales of One Thousand and One Nights. Carried by a warm percussion groove, phasing pads and deep 4/4 beats the track fuses oriental vibes with organic electronic sounds to create a dreamy melodic trip.
Come with me on a magic carpet ride. I’ll Take you on a journey through time and space. We’ll cross oceans and mountains. Fly over deserts and forests. We’ll see the past and the future. Just in the blink of an eye.
Release date: December 21th 2018 Beatport exclusive
Hosini – Soul Search EP (When We Dip XYZ Records)
XYZ is a new label set up in collaboration with the people behind the When We Dip blog, and following the success of their first release by Budakid, the label’s second instalment is from rising Stockholm based artist Hosini.
Hosini is synonymous with Anjunadeep but has also featured on other labels like Gorje Hewek & Izhevski’s Shanti Radio Moscow. The Swedish producer is still at the beginnings of his career, but already hotly tipped by heavyweights, it seems clear he has a bright future ahead of him.
Like a true artist, Hosini likes to keep information about his background private and instead letting his music do the talking.
“Soul Search” opens the EP with poignant pads that have a soothing tone which float between the stripped back percussion. Delicate textures add to the moody atmosphere, and there is a dubby feel to its mournful sound that’s full of captivating intrigue.
The second track “Centauri” is on a similar vibe to the first, but with the wispy harmonics of an ethnic horn sample and eloquent piano keys, it’s constructed with a different aesthetic. A tribal percussion style also adds to the laidback aura of this stunning track.
“Syd” completes the EP and finishes off the incredible journey of this mystical release. Self-reflective and immersive, there is something hypnotic about the way it leads into the breakdown of emotive strings that are hauntingly beautiful.
Release Date: Wed 5 December 2018
Dubman F. – Transitions Part2 (12+1 London Records)
Dubman F. is back with the second part of his ‘Transitions’ project. Two groovy original house tracks ‘Tonka’ and ‘Glooper’ including Carlos A’s tech re work and finest deep remix from Cat Black.
Released December 10, 2018
Calm Chor & InternalEye feat Ramona Arena – So Much To Say (Wind Horse Records)
Wind Horse records welcomes one of India’s finest electronic music producers – Calm Chor, onto our label for the very first time. This enormously gifted veteran lands a four track EP called ‘So much to Say’ that is a reflection of his more spiritual, ethereal and melodic interests. Distinctly deeper and visibly more emotive than his darker sounds, Calm Chor teams up Rohit Bhusan aka Internal Eye and with Indian Songwriter/VJ and singer Ramona Arena. The Original overlays Ramona’s uplifting and mysterious vocals over this excellent progressive composition.
The track begins with alluring atmospheres that could immediately transport you into his sonic kingdom. Soothing pads, emotive notes and simple but surreal textures add to the tracks vibe and feel. The bassline is punchy, groovy and catchy when coupled with a simple yet effective drums and percussions. With stringed elements and stabs of Ramona’s amazing voice, the original track is sure going to find its way onto most people’s download must haves. The EP also welcomes Mumbai based DJ/Producer Farhan Rehman and Wind Horse’s very duo of Hamza and Stalvart John on remix duties.
First up, Farhan gives us his rendition of Calm Chor’s original and it’s distinctly housey. From the groovy, bouncy basslines to mellow, organic soundscapes his remix demonstrates his dance music sensibilities. The track intelligently weaves together asimilar vocal samples with ease and precision and delivers a peak time- deep house bomb that’s definitely going to get fee tapping.
Hamza’s interpretation of ‘So much to say’ is more stripped down, intimate and dubby with a unmistakable Detroit house music soul. With minimal fuss, the track transcends it’s many forms to don that of a dub-techno and house groovey that can get any club’s dance floors up and at it in an instant!
The EP closes out with some proper 303 action as Stalvart John give the tune, a ‘full acid treatment’ with a hint of nostalgia and adds his traditional disco vibe and influence. A reprogrammed, gnarly bassline greets echoed out vocals and as much acid as you can take. You can be sure of some proper dancefloor moments with this banger
