Chris Robert – Hipnotyzed (Crossworld Records)
Chris Robert returned after more than 3 years with a new single called ‘Hypnotyzed’. With the same unmistakable style, balanced combination of elements to create an inviting sound Chris has always proved that passion wins.
Next to him is none other than Gabriel Slick, who transposed the original version into a deeper form of the house genre. We can say that both versions are equally attractive, so we invite you to listen to them and add them to your collection.
ChangedFaces – Horns (Sola Music)
Release Date(s): 23rd September 2022
Enigmatic UK duo ChangedFaces land on Sola for their label debut with the melodically mystical ‘Horns’ EP.
The release opens with ‘Horns’, a pulsating melodic-focused cut with ethereal energy and intensifying harmonies from start to finish. Its core of firmly driving drums and urgent percussion, arpeggiating synth lead and rhythmic bass stabs continue to rise throughout the record, gliding in and out of atmospheric breakdowns and striking synth solos.
‘All For Nothing’ rounds off the release with more masterful musicality. Driving drums and crisp percussive flair pave the way for a sea of prominent melodic factors, with another beating bassline and rippling synth arps dissected by striking celestial organ-like riffs leading into an interstellar main breakdown and onto more throbbing progressive toughness.
ChangedFaces stormed streaming playlists, DJ sets, radio airwaves and dancefloors worldwide in summer 2021 with their debut single ‘The Rhythm Of The Night’, a phenomenal Progressive Breaks re-work of Corona’s 90s euro-house classic. With global DJ plays and radio support from Radio 1, Kiss, Capital Dance in the UK, ‘The Rhythm Of The Night’ has clocked up over 5 million streams across Spotify and Apple Music alone and continues to rack up plays.
Swift off the heels of this ChangedFaces dropped a stunning progressive house remix for Owen Westlake & Charlotte Haining’s huge crossover single ‘MELT’, their own acclaimed and musically monumental two-track EP ‘The Messiah’ and a remix of the current Paul Oakenfold & ZHU single ‘I’m Into It’.
This was followed by ChangedFaces teaming up with world renowned vocalist Janai to create ‘Find You’, a sparkling house anthem in the making that layers Janai’s impressive vocal with spine tingling arps, an 80s bassline and progressive house flavours.
KaySoul – Click EP (Fluid Funk Recordings)
Taking the reins of the next Fluid Funk instalment is Johannesburg-based house producer KaySoul, a name who’s been making waves in the scene through labels such as Shall Not Fade and Dirt Crew. Architect of a sound both inherently bouncy and dependably functional, bending the curve betwixt afro-futuristic motifs and no-nonsense jacking house vibrations, KaySoul takes us on a funky ride with his “Click EP”, loading up elements of muscular bass music alongside torrid backroom ambiences.
Boosted on gristly, ovoid subs set to steady pressure mode, the lead-single “Click” feat. vocalist LYMA injects the Afro-house genre with a healthy dose of playfulness and processed pizzazz, while maintaining an openly soulful, Chicago-styled approach to the paradigm thanks to LYMA’s seamlessly integrated vocal swagger.
A more jagged slice of future-facing house business, “Of Yore” pulls out a seriously fiery mix of blazing basslines and trampling kick-snare combo going straight for the jugular. Adding his spin to the latter with a laid-back, escapistic impersonation, Uzu Moon has us floating in an ethereal yet dynamic haze of pastel-brushed synth tapestries and LA beat/UK liquid jungle-informed rhythmic salvos, woven along mangled vocal stabs straight out a Sepalcure-esque, breaks-fuelled dream sequence.
Topping off that bumpy sonic hike, KaySoul joins forces with Kurtx on the jolting “Gershwin”, fusing P-funk-ian keyboard oddity with an emphatically lurching cosmo-bop kind of swing that promises to have everyone on their knees.
