Choices - November 2010

Roman IV - La Paloma (Running Back)
Four underground tunes here. La Paloma and Lucy are both pure deep house trax. Sa Caleta is new disco format with a build up that takes you high. 123BPM is an Afro groove beat with chants. Quality release.

Musumeci - Rules 02 (Musumeci)
Musumeci continues to bring quality on the second release of his label. I was actually looking for this after the super remix the Italian producer presented for Demarkus Lewis 'No Longer the Same' on BattiBatti EP2. Two tracks here with Computer Program Reality which has the Original and shorter Reprise mix, and World Control. Computer Programme Reality is a slow house nu-disco groove with an amazing vocal talk by Philip K.Dick, the Reprise version has a more house feel to it with more bass kick and less tabs, the Original mix has more nu disco elements. World Control is another quality more nu funk disco trip. Very good release.

Marlow - Put Off Ep (room with a view)
A quality six tracker which includes two short two minutes intro and outro. Best track and one of the deep house tunes of the moment is surely Put Off, followed by the cover version I Don't Care About Anything. But this is all high quality.

Arno E.Mathieu - Astral Caravan Remix EP (Clima)
Afro Latin deep tribe four tracker at its best. Kuniyuki remix is dark and deep with spacey elements in it. While the In His true Mental Cut version is a full Latin build up, and Nude version keeps it simple and groovy with Latin pads building up.

COCCO - Beat On the Drum (Niraya)
I honestly thought Cocco was one of my all time DJ inspirations i.e. Claudio Coccoluto. But this is a Bulgarian producer Nikolay Karshakov. Here we have old school NY samples in a similar time frame arrangement and samples. The Original which is my preferred has a funky tribal attitude, the Gender mix is more of a build up kinda like Elements by DT. This is big room trax.

MMF - The Mysterious Man From? (ctf)
A two tracker of Detroit techno influences. Tekkno is just pure underground, and Sector 3 is a good Chicago Detroit mix. New label, never heard of productions mean it is good underground music. Cant tell you more so far if you know who they are leave a message.

Fritz Zander - For Your Love Ep (suoi)
A four tracker which is all worth a look. For Your Love is the most friendly tune, and is to be found in some important top ten DJ Choices. But also worth a note are the other three tracks with a special note to the cool Lose Yourself.

Rah Band - Clouds Across the Moon Part.2 (Great Stuff)
A new remix package of a disco classic from 1985 with; Mastiksoul, Kasper Bjorke, Martin Eyerer and Jade Suaid, Neuroxyde Aki Bergen, Jay Lumen and Umek. Downloaded three mixes from this, of which my preferred is the Martin Eyerer Jade Suaid Eclectic mix. Worth a note is also the Kasper Bjorke version also on a deep tip, and the more house pump and friendly Neurooxyde Aki Bergen mix.

var art - Discolette Digital (colette)
An original ten tracker first released in October with digital version released late November. I choose three tracks from this long player of classics, two of which unreleased mixes. Just an Illusion remixed by Lindstrom and Terje, You Make Me Feel remixes by Bobby Viteriti, both unreleased and the original mix of Knight Moves by Chilly Gonzales.

Julio Bashmore - Around, Batak Groove (soul motive)
A two tracker. Vocal sample from Roy Davis Junior Watch dem Come in Around with good percussion groove, Batak is a spaced tribal groove mover.
