Traxx 004: Da Funk - Roasted (incl. Jon Silva & The Mulder remixes) exclusive on Beatport

traxx_004_reflect
We took quite a break on Traxx, but here we come with our next release. And it was worth waiting for it!

Traxx 004 comes from Switzerland's Da Funk who runs the renowned Acryl Music label and gained quite some attention with his productions and remix works recently. Da Funk has been putting out original tunes on Forensic, Plastic City, Pesto and, of course, his very own Acryl Music. His tunes got licensed to a bunch of hi class compilations such as Café del Mar and his productions and DJ mixes are a staple of radio stations such as Ibiza Sonica, Frisky Radio or Ibiza Global Radio. He was also our guest on the PestoMix radio show on danceradio.gr on 20th July 2008 (download available here soon).

If you're familiar with our catalogue, you might have noticed that Da Funk has already released his amazing "Electronic Love" via our smashing compilation "2.0 - The Next Generation Of Pesto Artists" and we also had him as a remixer for our Pesto 005 release. So it was just a matter of time until Da Funk would be present on our Traxx sublabel to contribute a pure summer tune, full of deepness, groove and soul - exactly what you'd expect from a bangin' Da Funk production.

Support comes from our in house artists Jon Silva and The Mulder who are both well known guests on the global download charts and playlists to round up this diverse and arse-kicking release. No doubt - Traxx is back!!!

Pesto 011: Sandra Lima - Higher (incl. Jay-J and The Mulder remixes)

pesto011_reflect
With huge support from House jocks, radio stations and tastemakers all over, we were able to place this massive summer tune on a couple of upcoming compilations already. Raisani Miami Sessions (Dubai), Ibiza Global Radio, Open Bar (NYC) and Clubstar (Germany) - they all had a reason to put "Higher" in their mixes.

Finally, Sandra Lima's debut on Pesto is happening and here are six reasons to look forward to the outdoor season: DeepHouse icon Jay-J contributes two smashing mixes, Jon Silva adds some mid-90ies flavour and The Mulder is pleasing us with his top-notch DeepTech sound. This is the sound of the summer 2008!

Winter Music Conference

While everybody else is warming up for Miami and pushing out WMC samplers, we at Pesto will refrain from doing so. We prefer supplying you with excellent single releases on both Pesto and Traxx. "What's cooking?" you may ask - our answer will be an amazing release by Sandra Lima called "Higher".

Some of you might have heard the tune already but we'll release it in brand new versions and the "Higher" release will come with a huge bunch of remixes by some of the world's most famous artists. Pesto 011 includes remixes by House music's legend Jay-J and the usual suspects Jon Silva aka The Mulder. Pesto 011R will feature an amazing set of remixes by currently one of the hottest producers named Justin Michael, Thomas White of Natural Rhythm and West Coast Collective's very own Torin Rea plus a few more goodies.

Pesto 011 and 011R will be a true cross-Atlantic coop offering the very best in Deep House that's available on the planet right now. And, of course, we'll stick with the tradition of giving you the Pesto FreeBees, our hi quality MP3 downloads that you'll get for free. This time, we'll even offer you two free versions to download alongside the release of Pesto 011 and 011R.

On our sublabel Traxx Recordings, there's more hawtness coming your way: we're proud to announce that highly sought-after producer Da Funk from Switzerland's Acryl Music is having his debut on Traxx. After his "Electronic Love" on PestoLP002 (2.0 - The Next Generation Of Pesto Artists) founds its way into the CD sleeves of countless top DJs from all over, Da Funk returns with another smasher. "Roasted" will be one of the tunes to watch out for this spring and it's surely going to be one of this year's Eivissa staples. Traxx 005 will also come with a nice set of remixes - read more about them here in brief.
