This is the second PestoCast, your podcast from Pesto Music!

This issue deals with Pesto 008 "Luv" by Simone de Nauw that has just entered the exclusive promo presales on beatport.com on the 20th of March.
We offer you no less than 14 different versions, including amazing and already highly acclaimed remixes by Spin Science from Estonia and El Farouki from France.

DJ feedback on Pesto 008: Simone de Nauw - Luv

pesto008_simone_de_nauw_luv
As we're heading towards the release of Pesto 008 Simone de Nauw - "Luv", we want to share the immense feedback with you. Jocks out there have started to play "Luv" and totally freak out about the release.

Here's the feedback (by alphabetical order):

Agent Greg, Greece:
I just adore the original mix and the "Be There Dub"! Excellent release!!!!

Alex Flatner (Circle Music):
without no doubt the original mix is the best for me... very catchy and a great track to remember on the dancefloor...it has such a great vibe with the voice, that the voice and the beats you think are really ONE ...Great Release on Pesto and for me till yet the best !

Andreas Hansson, Sweden:
This is a great track one of my favorites at the moment and i think i will play it for a long time. Favorite mixes is the orignal and catchbass remix.

Big Al (Readymix Records), Canada:
Thanks for the promo. I absolutly love Be There Dub and El Farouki's Dub and Club Mix #1 instrumental and since I am not a big vocal guy myself, I also wish you had the Original Mix without the Vocals. Anyway, thanks for this. I love your sound. It's in my bag. [note: we will have that on the final release, fyi)

Chris Niteshake (Locked Groove), Greece:
I think the original track is a stormer. Simone De Nauw has a really beautiful voice I would definitely hear any track from now on from this lady! Now, the remixes are tough. Hard to choose from. Jon Silva did good work on the club mix (version 1). The Spin Science remix is a fantastic atmospheric production. El Farouki doing also a good work embedding his unique style in his remix, I prefer his dub. Electrique mix is for the electro house fans out there. And the "Luvelectro" is 808 action in his finest! Original - Silva - Spin Science - Luvelectro in my bag!

Christian (C&M Productions), Switzerland:
many thanks for the promos!!!!! great release the 008!!!!

Da Funk (Acryl), Switzerland:
what a release here for pesto!!! the original is such a great piece of music! wonderful harmonies, melodies and a badass bassline! killer track! the spin science and the catchbass mix are also pretty ace! great job!

Dana Bergquist (Symphonic, Pryda), Sweden:
Absolutely amazing, this you might have track of the year already!! Hard too choose best mix out of them, I like them all especially Original, Spin Science (all mixes) and Electrique Instrumental. Can't express it enough, simply beautiful, makes me have hopes for the house scene in this all too minimal climate we're in nowadays.

DJ E360° (Sysex Records), USA:
I think all the tracks are quality. Definitely getting plays in all my sets @ WMC in a few weeks. I have also played it over the weekend and got good reaction to the Club Mix 1. The vocals are hot.

DJ Linus (Exun), Germany:
absolute the best pesto release ever! my favs are "be there dub" and "electrique remix"! will play them every weekend @ Pacha. full support guranteed

Franco Martinelli (housepage.net), Italy:
Very nice release, this fresh vocal-house track is served in several remixes to please all the dancefloors. I prefer the more housey Spin Science Remix and Be There Dub .

Funk Manouver (Reelgroove/D6), Scotland:
Nice package with a few different options. Liking the 'be there dub' best, love the stab and the vox sits sweetly on it. Good job!

Gabriel Sordo (Underground Lessons, Somuns Corp.), Mexico:
Fantastic release!

Henri Kohn (A&R Clubstar, Conya), schäl sick:
my fav is still the original though Catchbass, Spin Science's, Club Mix #2 and El's Dub are also cool

Jay Serano (soulsessions.nl), Netherlands:
As I'm only playing at cocktail bars, pool parties, vip lounges, chillout clubs and the likes.. This track is already locked in my set. Played it last saturday at The Mansion Amsterdam and got a great crowd response! Thanks for sending me the promo and keep up the good work!

Jeff Bennett, Sweden:
Luvelectro is the one for me, nice one.

Jerry Kaye, USA:
loving the original... nice and groovy. also like the spin science remix..Great release guys!

This is end of part one. The other reactions will follow in brief. ;)
