Mediterranean Vibes: listen to all tracks in full length

Pesto EP003 cover artwork
Released as a Beatport exclusive just yesterday, we have a special goody for you.

From now on, we will post full length tracks to Pesto Music's YouTube channel. All tracks will be organized in playlists so you have the whole release in proper track order, excellent audio quality and can share either the playlist or individual tracks with your friends. If you feel ripping the YouTube file is appropriate rather than supporting the artists and appreciating our service, you're an idiot:)

As a consequence, we will get rid of our Flash-based MP3 player in the sidebar, thus making pesto.de a better experience for users of Apple's iOS devices and other gadgets not supporting Flash or users who refuse to install the plugin [update: once Google has fixed the problems]. On top of that, the page load times will decrease. We will switch to the new sidebar later today.

We will begin with Pesto EP003 "Mediterranean Vibes" and constantly add our older releases. That will also mean we'll add the YouTube playlists to our catalogue section, where you can research our releases and artists.

Here we go:





Pesto EP003: V.A. - Mediterranean Vibes excl. on Beatport

Pesto EP003 cover artwork
An unusually dry April and May with lots of warm and sunny days have set us in summer mode early this year.

To pick up that feeling and bring it to you, we have just released what we would call a proper summer soundtrack. Say hi to the third installment of our multi-artist Pesto EP titled "Mediterranean Vibes".

"Mediterranean Vibes" makes the full circle from really deep and chilly beach tracks with a gentle tribal touch such as "Shake This" by KountDown Project, over a dubby and atmospheric re-interpretation of Christos Fourkis' "About Me" by EDM veteran Bobby Deep, to bouncy and uplifting House tunes like "Rhythm Xord" by J Kar. When the sun has set, you can begin the evening with Helly Larson's bumping "The Sea" tune, drop John Sweet's "Don't Forget", an atmospheric mover, just to give the crazy clubbers what they need with pure peaktime material "Success" by Fair Play Knight.

The tracks have found lots of fans in the global DJ community, causing DJ mixes to pop up on the net containing one or another tune from the EP. We'll follow up on that in brief and present you a couple of brand new mixes that are worth having.

"Mediterranean Vibes" is out exclusive on Beatport today, the 26th May 2011, all other stores will follow 9th June 2011.

track list:
01. KountDown Project - Shake This
02. Christos Fourkis - About Me (Bobby Deep Remix)
03. J Kar - Rhythm Xord 
04. Helly Larson - The Sea
05. John Sweet - Don't Forget
06. Fair Play Knight - Successful (Dub)

Got 2 Have U - brand new Jon Silva track out on Aquamarine

Really don't know what makes me happier: the fact that I've finally released an original Jon Silva tune after more than a year. Or the fact to be in great company on Russia's Aquamarine label, being part of their superb compilation "Elastic Sound presents: Aquamarine Sampler Vol.2". It's probably both.

This sampler, compiled by Elastic Sound who delivered a Beatport-charting remix for Replika's "Inner Vision" last June, is full of deep goodness. Dense atmospheres, jacking grooves, jazzy samples, vocals, sweet synth riffs - it's all in. And while all contained tracks are great on their own, please pay special attention to these: George Horn's "Reviver" - a moody and sweet piece with an amazing beat. Replika's "Textura" - I've never heard a bad tune from this swiss miracle who never fails to deliver the deep shizzle. Dima Promo's "Enjoy" - this is to show you how funky a computer with a music production software can get while not losing that atmospheric, dubby vibe. Ocean Gaya's "Back In USSR" - a grooving floater with Yann's signature sound. J Kar's "In Love So Deep" - boy, do I love the fact I've just signed two tracks from this amazing greek guy. His mum probably breastfed him groove and deepness.

Don't get me wrong, I like the others as well but the tracks mentioned above were the ones I immediately fell in love with. Oh, and of course you might want to check out my "Got 2 Have U" track, a typical Jon Silva number featuring a fat bassline, classic drum machine grooves, deep chords and a banging piano stab. Not to forget some silky Silva vocals and a neat little 303 line to add some swirl - hope you like it;)

Now please go and buy that release - this winter is a cold one and artists need to pay for a warm flat. But it makes them happy in general if you appreciate their music and support them.
