Uto Karem // Wherever The Bass Takes Me

6 Dec

uto karem agiles ep

Uto Karem‘s double dose of juiciness keeps the bounce going and the rhythm rolling while justifying the EP’s title in full. “Taking Me” proudly wears its disco influences on its sleeve with a highly addictive bassline and stabs straight from the boogie vault. The uplifting vocal loops and mesmerizes, while galloping percussion provides the steady chug-fest. On “Earth Link” we are introduced to some rubber-band bass sealed tight over a snappy rhythm section, letting a sleazy vocal sample do its business and take things to another level with a laid-back groove and euphoric effects.

Bass Kleph // Riff Machine

2 Dec

1605 is very happy to welcome the notorious Bass Kleph to its ranks, with his aptly titled “Riff Machine“.

The original mix does exactly what it says on the package with an infectious bleepy riff over a mutating sub bassline. Adding a touch of psychotic effects wizardry and a pounding rhythm section, we find Bass Kleph flirting heavily with the nastier side of things.

Mladen Tomic takes care of the first remix and offers a serious roller with frantic percussion, shuffling hats and an optimistic vibe. On the other side of the fence, we see Hertz using fragments of the original’s lead sound to build his warped mosaic of twisted bass and militant grooves. Stripping everything down to the bare necessities, this one will keep heads glued to the floor. (1605 SC, 2011)

Introducing eRi2

4 Sep

I would like to introduce you to the Portuguese born, London based Producer  “eRi2” .
I was very impressed by the energy of his uplifting Techno creations but also the variety and originality of the music under his aka name Housaria , check a few examples of his work below!

About eRi2:
“In a world where music creation became so common and so many producers seem to lack originality, the Portuguese Born, London based eRi2 is one of those producers who will push his skills and productions as far as possible to get the unique results he desires.

eRi2 seeks no limit for creative sound design process with only one intention, try to be as original as possible thru his instinctive feel of rhythmic progression and sonic uplifting sensations.

Yet eRi2 has also a wide curriculum when comes to musical education, since his early years in Music Academy learning Classic guitar and Drums, which he admits to know far less than he once knew, passing thru courses like Music composition and creativity (Restart, Lisbon), Electronic Music Production (Academia, Lisbon) and finally a degree in Sound engineer at the world known Pointblank Music College in London in which he won a competition for producer Tim Sheridan.

ERi2’s musical style is simply described best as, Sonically evolved Tech house with a rhythmic scent of minimal techno.
With almost 10 years behind the decks he already impressed both clubbers and promoters that had the pleasure to attend to one of his gigs while playing in venues like Morlox Club (Berlin), Kapital, Opart, Ngaru Beach Club, Souk, Lx factory, Espaço 2010 Club, Absolute Club (Portugal) (…) and shared the booth with artists like Andrea Bertolini(it), Levan(uk), Leeks(UK), Funkestrom (GER), Alex Kiefer (GER), Expander(pt) and Magazino(pt), among others.

Now, with his production and remixing skills developing at an outstanding rapid rate, his wish is to show even more people what he is capable of and why music can be such an enjoyable passion.”

Big Wheel

15 Apr

The term Big Wheel was invented by the ducks in 2010, inspired from the Melt Festival and its big wheel stage. This being said, this particular stage does not always play this type of sound. In our world big wheelin tunes are basically pushy tech and techno tunes that drive you more and more with their clicks, hats, rhythms, snares and basslines etc. Because of the DJ we saw on this stage, our term quickly took its effect. Now for a few samples, tune in below!

_Maetrik – Push Me (Popof Remix)

_Alex Delia & Nihil Young – Mooger Fooger (Mladen Tomic Remix)

_MiniCoolBoyz – Feel my Drums (Mladen Tomic Remix)

If you dig this kind of stuff I would recommend your check out: Popof, Sébastien Léger, Format:B, Max Bett, Roy RosenfelD, and Mladen Tomic to name a few (note that they are not limited to this kind of style).
