GENTS108 Dimi Jazzmon – Other Side Of Time EP (Gents & Dandy’s Records)
Final artist EP for 2019!
Dimi Jazzmon who’s worked with Tantra Zawadi on his previous releases goes really deep on all 4 tracks for his label debut entitled ‘Other Side Of Time’.
Solidmind – Eternal Soul EP (Ready Mix Records)
December 13th 2019 (Beatport Exclusive)
December 27th 2019 (Worldwide)
For release number 213 on the label, Ready Mix Records presents three afro-tech-infused, moody House tracks by talented German producer Solidmind.
Opening cut ‘Prophet’ combines a sense of Eastern mysticism embodied by swirling drones, vocals and flutes, with a heavy synth bass-line and punchy drums summoning up an intoxicating, heady atmosphere.
Next up is ‘Zumba’, a lighter, more subtle groove with steel drums and sure-footed, intricate percussion leading the way into a teasing arrangement that twists and turns like tantra, deliberately avoiding climax.
Finally ‘Desert Dust’ introduces a slightly more reflective, mournful feel: de-tuned pads and dream-like vocals shimmering above a hypnotic rhythmical backdrop.
Emiliano Martini – Art of Noise EP (Lucidflow Records)
Puerto Rican DJ and producer Emiliano Martini becomes part of the Lucidflow family with the ‘Art Of Noise’ release. Already well travelled in terms of labels, having guested on US stalwarts Nervous Records and irecords, as well as respected European imprints such as Baroque Records and Low Pressings, his five tracker displays the touch of experience with these global influences in full effect.
‘Remote Places’ leads off with some deft low end rumbling deep house, marrying hypnotism and melody perfectly. The title track ‘Art Of Noise’ leans on Lucidflow’s love of micro percussion, with subtle rapid fire percussion filling the gap between the kicks while a writing bass line wiggles over the top.
Going for minimalism, ‘Night Sky’ teams twinkling staccato with unusual vocal snippets, while ‘Swings In Nature’ lets an erratic and unpredictable acid funk groove play out. Tying off the release ‘Rhythm Translator’ hits the mid-naughties love of twisted vocals and fidgety rhythms.
Across all the tracks there is darkness and light, the knowledge that club tracks are much more than functional metronomes that help you sequence from A to B. There is something for everyone on ‘Art Of Noise’, so jump in.
The ‘Art Of Noise’ EP drops on 20st January 2020 from all your usual digital stockists.
T.I.B – Moons Of Neptune EP (Rogue Decibels Records)
Tremendous in Bloom joins the Rogue Decibel family and closes 2019 with a stirring 3 tracker full of deep dubbed out sounds.
A constant theme runs throughout the EP with moody synths creating hypnotic soundscapes against clean punchy drums. There’s also an excellent collab with Random Fact who appeared on the label earlier this year.
Mastered at Rogue Decibels HQ.
Exclusive Release date: 13/12/2019 (Traxsource)
