Ryan Murgatroyd – Something Said (Ian Pooley Remixes)
Get Physical will end 2017 and start 2018 with two remixes packages that find first Ian Pooley, then Super Flu, rework Ryan Murgatroyd’s essential ‘Something Said’ track from the label’s latest Words Don’t Come Easy compilation.
South African Ryan Murgatroyd is a Cape Town based producer who has amassed a fine discography over the last decade. Now signed to labels like Defected and Get Physical and a regular at Hï Ibiza with Black Coffee, his ‘Something Said’ was a real standout in this year’s compilation, not least for the way its popping drums, lithe percussion and colourful melodies did such a lively dance. At its heart though were the wonderfully pained vocals, courtesy of one of South Africa’s true rising stars, who for now shall remain nameless which were layered over the top of the groove whilst a tumbling bassline helps flesh out the inventive and original sound. This original version is available on both of the remixes packages.
The first package also comes with two remixes from long time Berlin house head, Pooled Music boss and respected producer Ian Pooley. His first fine remix is a full fat house track with vamping chords injecting energy and urgency to the slithering hi hats and mid-tempo kicks. It’s a set building tune that sweeps you up and carries you along before the chords drop out and reveal a pained bassline. The dub mix removes the longing vocals to focus more on the chords and bass and result in a warm and melodic house groove that is effortlessly timeless.

Ohxalá – Sereias do Planeta Vermelho EP
Title: Sereias do Planeta Vermelho EP
Remixes by: Lemurian | MiRET | Rodrigo Gallardo
Cat #: SRMR177
Label: Ready Mix Records
December 11th 2017 (Beatport Exclusive)

Our penultimate release on Ready Mix for 2017 comes from Portuguese duo Maria and Luis, making their label debut under the “Ohxalá” moniker to present us with their latest triple tracker “Sereias do Planeta Vermelho EP”.
The title track “Sereias do Planeta Vermelho” reflects the pair’s obsession with ancient instruments and traditional sounds from Brazil, Africa, Portugal and beyond. Jungle sounds play with tribal percussion and haunting flutes, punctuated by subtle electronic touches in this hypnotic and idiosyncratic chill-out gem.
Also making his Ready Mix debut, spiritual sonic explorer and maker of “shamanic psychedelia”, Lemurian turns in a scintillating remix, making the most of the exotic parts and adding a few of his own to build a soul-stirring Deep Tech bubbler.
Second original track, “O Barulho do Gizo da Cobra” blends eastern percussion with birdsong and a Brazilian spoken word vocal to create a sumptuous and languid vibe, reminiscent of Thievery Corporation.
On remix duties, nomadic Latin producer MiRET adds a hypnotic hangdrum and some heavier percussion to suit the deepest sunset sessions.
For the final original track “Berimbal Regionau”, Ohxalá once again blend instrumentation from across the globe with somewhat darker electronic touches to create something that sounds almost like acoustic dubstep.
Supplying the final remix of the package, Chilean musician and producer Rodrigo Gallardo takes the track into a flute frenzy over potent organic rhythms and guitars.

VA – Winter Sampler 20 Year Compilation (Uniting Souls Music)
Twenty years of Uniting Souls! The Seattle institution – collective, events promoter, and record label – celebrates an impressive two decades since formation with a compilation showcasing some of the crew’s strongest contributors. Across top notch eight cuts, the Winter Sampler: 20 Year Compilation delivers the deep, underground beats that Uniting Souls is known for. Michael Manahan (Hunt & Gather) starts off the sampler with the groovy “Center Peace,” featuring evocative vocals from Tamika Jackson which alternates between sung and spoken phrases. Spacey pads and sharp chords drive things along nicely. Long-time Uniting Souls denizen Tokita (Night Grooves) then unleashes “Jazzcid” which funks up the proceedings. Its delicious nods to the old school are irresistible. “Everyday” comes courtesy of Jeromy Nail (Innerflight Music), dropping intricate beat programming, bouncing sub bass, and a slinky dance floor vibe. DJ duo Lee Houser (Tilted Records) contributes two cuts, with “Art of State” exhibiting a classic, psychedelic west coast deep house flavor. The pair’s “Don’t Even Know Me” then gets remixed by veteran Uniting Souls DJ Jordan Strong who sublimely places the cut right in the middle of an underground basement party at 4 AM. Reno, Nevada, DJs Sulli & 5657 are up next, delivering some particularly chunky beats and a ton of late night atmosphere. Live electronic trio renowned & much loved in the Pacific Northwest festival community, Madly In Dub lend an exotic flair with “Suenos Verdes,” and Jordan Strong returns to close out the compilation with the deep, percussive, and dark “Picture In The Sky,” a collaboration with Shonja. Winter Sampler: 20 Year Compilation serves as a brilliant ‘state of the nation’ for Uniting Souls and its family. The label and collective is as strong as ever, and there’s no sign of slowing down. Seattle’s house music underground is in good hands.
