Been a long time you last heard from us but Pesto is back with a slamming new single.

This time, Romania's Addex is our man featuring his signature atmospheric deep sound on "Rumble In The Bronx". Small vocal chops are laid out on a stomping beat, keeping the tune dry and direct in the first third. Guitar snips and chord stabs take the tune towards a lush breakdown, just to return to that steady groove with the help of shiny cymbals.

Greece's Ilias Katelanos sticks to the deepness factor of the original but introduces a slightly shakier groove, adding some congas and a pulsating synth line. A classic Deep House bass line gives this tune a bit more chest-bumping than the original, making it ideal for an early evening purpose.

From Denmark, we have DeepWit's head honcho Alvaro Hylander who extracts the pads from the original to lay them on an infectious, deeply pumping drums and bass foundation. Punching kick, lower than low bass and an even housier groove turn this into a floor-filling rework, perfect for pre-peaktime sets.

Nadja Lind, that lovely fairy from Berlin eventually invites us on a trip to deep Dub land. The guitar samples play a major role here, being nicely used on top of a trippy atmosphere, chords being added when the remix returns to a heavily Basic Channel-ish infected groove work, let alone the truly rumbling bass. Beach venues will appreciate this mix.

Finally, Addex himself offers a more stripped down Dub of the great Original, with an amazing bass line full of balearic goodness. A hi string is introducing a soft hook line that keeps floating on this ride-driven, lush package of fantastic deepness. Summer vibe might be a good description here as well.

Pesto EP002: V.A. - Booty Shakers out now [and charting]

cover artwork for Pesto EP 002
A bit late with the update as Pesto EP002 "Booty Shakers" is already out since 5th January 2011 but here we go.

First, we have Cooccer from Stuttgart, Germany - resident at the legendary Climax club inventing a completely new genre. "Elarina" should be filed under DubDisco because of the massive bass line going under some discoid snippets and a strict groove. Cooccer just broke Climax' visitor record last December. We'll investigate further if this is related to his release;)

Up next, we have Eire's finest Andy O' Donoghue with "Kick Back", a monotonous stomper with a remarkable piano chord, suitable both for early and late hours on the floor - toolish and a must-have in any DJ's sleeve.

Third in the row is "Access" by Norman Creed and Patryk Molinari featuring some not so unknown spoken words in the break on top of a roaring bassline. Patryk just had a smasher out on Greelpound Records while both of the Berlin based guys released awesome choons on our first EP "Deep Discoveries" a couple of weeks ago.

"Rainbows & Butterflies" comes from Dubai and Mumbai in the shape of Sam Farsio and Arnold Misquitta aka Socio Robots. This hot duo is destined to make it big in 2011 and their contribution to "Booty Shakers" is just another proof of their quality. These guys have been played by all top notch jocks and this tune is no different rather than another reason for their global success.

Then, we have a young talent from FYROM aka Macedonia (please don't start arguments on the meaning of "Macedonia" mkay?) who I've had already the pleasure to rock a night with: Nick Fay. "Your Love" is a plain peaktime full floor smasher that will get any crowd going. Huge breakdown, fat beats, catchy vocal - this one has all it takes!

Last but not least there's Russia's Ivan Weber who contributes a piece reminiscient of "Le Champagne" by Trentemøller in the first place. Ivan evolves "People Are Strange" to new heights though by employing a massive synth riff that ends up in a huge, messy and dirty break - just to catch up with the groove from before.

[update: "Booty Shakers" just entered the Deep House album charts on Juno Download at #53]
Juno Download has quite a nice player as well:




Epic DubHouse DJ set, compiled off net labels' output - awesomeness alert!

I am aware of the fact that the net label scene is quite vivid. I have heard great tunes from netlabels, great mixes with those tunes and I appreciate the effort these people put into their work.
To be honest, I have also found a majority of really shit music (in the meaning of "not good enough to sign to a label") and crappy mixes (this requires no further explanation, I think).

Today though, I have found a DubHouse DJ set, compiled of tunes released by netlabels that simply blew me away. Excellent selection, excellent mix, excellent tracks - had to copy the set on my iPod to stay there for my travels.
It's this kind of vibe you're demanding on a Sunday morning after clubbing and while smoking special cigarettes, while drivin or just in order to entertain you. Or, as Mixotic, the page you can find this mix on puts it:

"Foton sends the perfect soundtrack for a warum summer night to you. Look up to the stars and let the deepest dub sounds rain on you, really relaxing, laid back stuff!"


Check out Foton's "Quelque Mix", download it, copy the track list and be happy. Nothing more than this except to say "thank you!" for this epic DJ set.
