Borowsky – Woobona EP (Ready Mix Records)
May 7th 2021 (Beatport Exclusive)
May 21st 2021 (Worldwide)
From the bleak Russian Urals comes young producer Borowsky, delivering two progressive and melodic original tracks for Ready Mix release #233, presented with remixes by Cee ElAssaad and Daniel Testas.
Title track ‘Woobona’ delivers a palpable sense of space and drama, reflecting those Ural Mountains which loom so large in Borowsky’s homeland. But ‘Woobona’ is tender too, displaying a strong sense of emotion and eclectic musicality. As Borowsky himself puts it: ‘I like to mix folklore from different countries with electronic music. This immerses people in a state of love for themselves and the world.’ Amen to that, brother!
First up to rework Woobona is Moroccan hotshot Cee ElAssaad, who turns in a typically vibrant and groove-led ‘Voodoo’ version, creating a potent, percussive Afro-House vibe with a tonne of heart. ElAssaad also delivers a ‘Voodoo Dub’ version, hypnotic and laced with late-night euphoria; and his ‘Voodoo Ambient’ mix is the perfect set-starter or DJ tool, slowly building up to a beatless synth climax with tantric levels of patience.
Next up, Amsterdam’s Daniel Testas subtly guides ‘Woobona’ into more traditional airy progressive house territory with his usual glistening atmospherics, uplifting arpeggios and flawless arrangement.
Borowsky’s second original track, ‘Lavissia’, combines haunting wordless vocals with piercing industrial synths, which make way for an angelic breakdown filled with hangdrum melodies and subtle pads.
We hope you enjoy this special debut from a talented newcomer to the Ready Mix Records family and we look forward to hearing what’s next.

Klartraum – Manifestation Blueprint 4 (Lucidflow Records)
This year saw Nadja Lind and Helmut Ebritsch’s production machine shift into top gear. Their fifth studio album ‘Manifestation’ was released, alongside a raft of supporting Bandcamp exclusive jams . Launching as pandemic lockdown began to grip worldwide, its blend of deep dub house and sprawling widescreen ambient was a necessary panacea to the global climate. Their previous albums ran with a concept – each quarter of the year saw an EP release that came together to form the full LP. However, ‘Manifestation’ reset the blueprint, back to a single work, albeit as a two and a half hour mega-album.
While the studio principles have changed, the tradition of the follow up remix album has not, with the Klartraum pairing drafting industry luminaries and Lucidflow family favourites alike. This is no idle boast – names such as Steve Rachmad, Silicone Soul, Terry Francis, Vince Watson, Ian Pooley, and the currently in-demand Saytek have thrown their talent to the reworks in the past, and the current line up is just as glittering.
‘Draw The Line’ is tackled by Jam El Mar of Jam & Spoon fame, dreamAwaken and Oliver Loew . Jam runs with a downtempo ambient house version imbued with the purest of 303. The track is taken into more dance floor slanted directions when Oliver Loew taps into the easy funk of the original, while dreamAwaken adheres to the ethereal cosmic float.
‘Manifestation’ is handled by the storied Dapayk Solo , alongside Guiliano Rodrigues and the off-kilter Spettro. Dapayk’s remix is full of tense staccato, with Rodriguez hitting up the warm dub template of Lucidflow for his interpretation, and Spettro defying convention with a tumbling broken techno interpretation
Already a choice cut, ‘Weltenwandler’ is put through its paces by production machine D.Diggler, Jor-G and Dirt Crew artist Tigerskin . Diggler is in surprisingly restrained form with a deeply dramatic arpeggio laden version, Jor-G is on top dub form with his reworking, while Tigerskin absolutely wallops you for the stars with a truly cosmic Italo inspired take.
Finally, ‘What I Am’ is given a huge four artist reworking extravaganza to finish off the package, with a whole host of Lucidflow favourites brought in for their vision. error.func goes for main room techno with a sorbet of a breakdown halfway through, lounge dub specialist Riccicomoto hits up the reverb and acid strains for a truly cavernous remake, with Mielafon and Radiorobotek both hitting the atmosphere buttons with their dub house remixes.

Diego Viera – Simancon (Candy Flip Records)
‘Simancón’ is a song from 2020 that was part of UNITED WITH TECHO –
Solidarity is never in quarantine, a compilation that involved 32 Electronic artists
from all around the world, including Diezmo (UK), Bleepolar (COL), KAKOFONICO
(ITA), among others.
Now, the track develops more colors with its release
throughout Candy Flip, a Colombian label that has become a key component in
House scene in Latin America.
The track is an elegant sound composition that utilizes samples from the legends of
San Basilio de Palenque Las Alegres Ambulancias (a folkloric afro band), that allows
Veira to channel his geographical influences with an international identity.
Instead of using a generic reference, the Colombian producer travels to the origin of
Colombian afro folk music, creating a dialogue between two worlds that excite him.
The result is a mix of textures that uses as samples the important funerary ritual of
Lumbalú from San Basilio de Palenque with colors of House of European influence.
Fluida feat Ahmed Sosso – First Nation Drums (Kindisch Records)

The Nhii Remix for First Nation Drums feat. Ahmed Sosso will also be part of Nhii’s upcoming Kindisch Stories album.
