Choices - December 2010

Artist - Title (label)
Franklin De Costa - Fragile EP (Curle)
Four amazing tracks of deepness by Franklin. All good if you like it down deep and underground.

Stephen Day - Future Echoes (Acilectro Blue)
Two tunes here with Be Somebody sampling the mid nineties hit Everybody Be Somebody by Ruffneck. Interesting also the deep Underwater which goes on recent new Detroit deepness style.

var art - My Dubtechno Vol.1 (Push Communications)
15 tracks of high quality by the likes of Trentemoller, Donnacha Castello, Lopazz, Adultnapper, Chymera, and Kasper Bjorke to name the famous artists. Stand out track is Past Present by Langenberg.

Kayla Amelia - Angels Calling (Bombay)
Defintly the soulful tune of the last few months. The singing and production of the original mix are top notch here. Also remix by Miguel Graca and Osaze Awaaz, but still not to the level of the original.

Schwanbeck - Decend (sixonesix)
Five tunes of pure deepness and on a Detroit tip. I like them all but for a review here we go. Broadcast is pure Afro minimalism. Decend is just deep and down. In Deep Sh is just atmosphere which turn around and make you loose into space with the grooves keeping you in touch with the gravity. Null is pure reggae dub, pity its just over two minutes long. Played Out is pure mechanical grooves building up and making you fly. Tune!

Count Jackula - Club Medits (Discotexas)
If you like to keep it under 120 this is surely heaven for you. Three tracks here from the very summering Africa, Slowburner, and Not So Slowburner. All on a new funk Balearic sounds. There is also two additional remixes of Africa by Golden Bug and Photonz. Both good but I prefer the deeper and darker atmosphere of Photonz.

Moshi Moshi - Karuzell EP (resopal schallware)Four tracks of very deep inspiration. Mary Mary and Daphu are on a Afro tribal tip, So High is just pure deepness, and Karuzell experiments with the moods and ambient for over half of its length before finally coming to life.

Tiga - Love Don't Dance Here Anymore (Different)
Carl Craig makes a remix of Tiga and goes to his recent hard sound. Here is also an instrumental of the original which puts its new wave disco origins. Nice trip.

Claude Du Pont - The Early Days (LeFreq)
Lefreq the label of Jordan Fields continues to make very interesting disco remixes reedits and reworks. Here Du Pont remixes Loose Control. His version is actually a nice build up featuring a lot of the 2000 disco house element. Good to have are also the beats of Loose Control. Other tunes which stand out in this LP ten tracker which has three versions of Loose Control are Chicago The Windy City, and Its My House.

Purple Music - The Master Collection Vol.7 (Clubstar)
Another collection from Clubstar dedicated to this label. Here delivering some more soul with pump and obscure tunes. Some intersting cover versions of some disco classics.

Purple Music - The Master Collection Compiled by Jamie Lewis (Clubstar)
A collection of twenty tracks collected by Purple Music boss Jamie Lewis. On a soulful tip.
