Felipe Venegas // Ritmical Baco EP

19 Sep

Now Venegas returns to Cadenza with perhaps his most daring EP yet. The title of the EP and its lead track, ‘Ritmical Baco’, comes from the name of a band from Santiago, which Venegas was once a part of. As he explains, “I played guitar and keyboards for the band, and our sound was influenced by jazz and funk artists like Miles Davis, Joe Sawinul, Chick Corea, Return to Forever, and Los Jaivas, who were one of our most important influences. (Cadenza SC, 2012)

Slap In The Bass // Nada & Goma EP

23 Nov

Sometimes you gotta rave a little, so why not to this Slap in the Bass EP out on No Brainer Records Nov 25th.

Our Hungarian favourites SLAP IN THE BASS return from Egypt with two skillfully crafted future dance classics: ‘Nada’ employs strings, beats and bass to tear musical dimensions apart in the most beautiful way you can imagine. ‘Goma’ is a rather fierce beast. I heard it eats those who don’t dance for breakfast. (NoBrainer SC, 2011)

Zombies For Money // Oy Shaba EP

7 Oct

Tune in to some tropical bass at its finest – Zombies For Money presents their 3-track Oy Shaba EP out on Trouble & Bass Recordings soon! Here’s a text from the label SC:

Like many of Zombies For Money releases, they are heavily influenced by tropical music, kuduro, cumbia, tech house and worldwide bass music. And as always these guys mix all these influences together perfectly to make some of the best club music in the world. Oy Shaba grabs hold of a crazy middle-eastern horn and turns it into a horrifyingly infectious riff. Mina! is maybe the craziest tune on the EP, utilizing the most different samples; Mina! flips a simple guitar diddy, adds another off the wall horn and throws in a few Hey!’s on top of a jackin tropical beat to make a totally mad track! Kayapo VIP of course is the VIP version of Kayapo (unreleased) that has been in the works for quite some time now. The VIP combines a jump-up dutch house synth with exotic drum hits, typical of the Zombies’ curumba style. This is an essential new release for any fan of heavy bass house music! (T&B Recs SC, 2011)

Kry-lon // Los Lobos EP

6 Sep

Tune in to Kry-Lon‘s new Los Lobos EP out on DubNoir Music. Feeling the latin vibes in the first two tracks! Out now on beatport. Here’s a little text I found about them:

Mexican-born duo Kry-Lon are two young dj’s/ producers hailing from Tijuana. Kry-lon’s productions are full of surprising beats and exciting samples that takes you on a journey and into another state of mind. This could be in the form of hypnotic jazz-infused house music or music with latin rhythms. This collective well constructed sound demonstrates the convergence and symbolic nature of their musical past. At just 16 years old they played at one of the largest festivals in America; (Electric Daisy Carnival & Nocturnal). (Dubnoir SC, 2011)
