Sol Selectas is a light that cuts though the darkness of winter with its new compilation Global Entry, which collects tracks from all around the globe to embrace different cultures and celebrate what makes us all individual.
Run by Sabo, many know the Sol Selectas sound for being a unique blend of sensual melody, tribal percussion and spiritual atmosphere that combine to paint audio pictures of distant lands and mystical places. This project twill take us on an even deeper psychedelic journey.
Often influenced by the local folk law of the artist who feature on each Sol Selectas release, this compilation features eleven tracks from Germany, Argentina, Italy, UK, Spain, Russia, Morocco, France, and Israel.
Each of the tracks has its own personality and it includes tribal house alongside low slung afro cuts, trippy disco flavour, and deep house that’s full of enchanting melody.
01. The release is opened by a downbeat groove builder from Iorie who has previously contributed a remix to Sol Selectas, but this time he is back with original material.
02. Argentinian duo PAAX (Tulum) are next with their label debut and it’s a beautiful mid-tempo track called “El Teatro De Los Sueños” which premiered at several festivals last summer
03. Track three “Epopea” is by Italian artist Glauco Di Mambro who uses traditional Sicilian instruments paying homage to the legendary film composers of Italy, to create this trippy masterpiece.
04. Next up is Anthony Middleton who is known best for being one half of Audiofly, but this track “Energy Is Currency” showcases his solo talent making melodic cuts with enchanting atmosphere and epic pads.
05. For the fifth track, this LP presents a spiritual offering from Spanish artist Yamil who delivers a deep house cut with hypnotic vocals and sensual melodies.
06. “Cuando” is from Ukrainian artist Aikon who was formerly known as Nekliff, and it’s a tribal cut with dramatic piano stabs, empowering vocal textures and a flute that flutters like the wings of a bird.
07. Making his return to Sol Selectas is Amine K who last featured on the label when he collaborated with Sabo, and this solo track is full of the Moroccan flair he is best known for.
08. Track eight is from French artist “Mula” whose Punjabi influenced track “Ananta Groove” fully embraces the multicultural focus on this release.
09. Russian artist Alexey Union turns up the heat with his afro beat influenced track “Zambezy” which is a rich blend of rhythms shrouded in a tapestry of texture and samba style melodies.
10. Bringing the LP into double figures is a Sol Selectas debut from Fluida who play all their own live percussion rather than use samples, and their quirky track “From Here On” is uniquely wonderful.
11. Closing off the EP is a track by Golan Zocher & Choopie who both hailing from Israel, and for this ethereal track they have enlisted the help of Laroz Camel Rider who is no stranger to Sol Selectas, and together they have made a blissful Balearic tune that’s a perfect close out the LP.

Lewis Monbarn – Omen LP (Massaia Records)
At the time of composing a year of reflection and learning had passed.
Popularly known as Lodewyck, legendary producer Lewis Monbarn takes flight with his debut album Omen. Lewis Monbarn’s affinity for music has been a lifelong affair. He began creating electronic music at twelve years of age and has grown to be a moving force in the house music scene, getting the support of many international djs and having most of his releases on top of the charts. It is with this same creativity that we find his debut album Omen to be an exceptional item.
Monbarn is able to build an exemplary musical landscape that encompasses elements of industrial, electro, jungle, and psychedelia into the framework of house music. Monbarn’s production on Omen takes a cinematic route that keeps his audience intrigued with each and every transition. Omen’s exotic and tribal grooves amid post-modern measures of keyboard and synth create an aspiring view of the world through music. Monbarn infuses chants and other “sacred” voice sounds throughout Omen for increased continuity. Omen by Lewis Monbarn is a sonic canvas of one producer’s life story that captures our own.
Nova Casa – Epsilon Crucis EP (Everybody In Records)
Release Date – 13/03/2020
Everybody In return in 2020 with a stellar maxi EP from Leipzig based Nova Casa. An artist with influences that range from smooth hip-hop, lounge, deep house, melancholic soul to classical 4/4 music. Their 6 tracker “Epsilon Crucis” covers a lot of ground with a unique style and pace.
This is a galactically inspired set of music, from the etheric synth work and glacial tempo of “Clean Cotton”, to the more dubbed out vibe of “Deep Acting”. There is a variety to this EP from the very start. Nova Casa has a sound with plenty of room for changing direction and offering up something a little different from what you might expect.
“Alliance” is a little more straight up, but the bassline has an intricate funk that elevates it to the next level. Destined as much for the club as it is at ease when listening at home. “Amdacha’s” clever use of the Piano and more traditional sounds mixed with tight electronic drums makes for a deep and meaningful journey.
Closing out this super-sized EP, we have two tracks that take things in two distinctly different directions – as we have come to expect. “Awakening” feels more Housey, with an edge of early Tensnake thrown in for good measure. A melodic groover that sets up the finale “Altarf” nicely. The final track itself is a mid tempo…slow mo chiller. Gorgeously proportioned and warmly produced whilst keeping the Nova Casa signature melodic edge. They are also featuring the edgy artwork from Turin based artist Ermanno Cavaliere, who creates something new and mesmerising through a collage made of everyday life fragments.
Out soon on Everybody In.
Release Track list:
1. Clean Cotton
2. Deep Acting
