There are two modest Italian producers we’ve got a lot of time for at the moment. There’s nothing too flashy about them but they have a knack of producing really tight records that sound smashing just about every time they appear on our Soundcloud feed.
If a decent bit of soulful House music makes you go weak at the knees, we reckon you’ll like Submantra and DJ Umbi‘s latest package released on Solid Ground Recordings – a no-nonsense combo of seductive vocal loop, bouncing chords and synthed-up groove make it a real good un.
Really impressive stuff here from Tom Davies, associate of Mister Biscuit regular or:la, with whom he runs Liverpool-based party, Get Down.
Simple, clean-cut House music.
Part of a two-track EP, you can buy this one yourself.
S3A really is a wicked producer – a guy that dishes up really fresh and original jams, mostly via his label Hold Youth, time and time again.
Don’t believe us? Try this nugget from last year.
Anyhow, this is probably our favourite track off his latest EP – a track that kinda sums up the Frenchman’s style in a nutshell: fruity, eclectic and full of style.
Our sixth mix comes all the way from Belgrade via the impressive Serbian producer, Manjane.
This one is an absolute beauty…
We recently read somewhere (possibly VICE Magazine?) that it’s terribly inappropriate to use the word ‘organic’ outside of a food context.
Not this time though – we’d happily challenge the prat who said that because this EP is 100% free-range goodness. Slow Town Records label owner, Rhythm&Soul, has got it spot-on again here. This cut exhibits elements of classic House (via splashes of cooling riffs and soaring chords) and lazy disco funk, weaved into a more modern, rough and slightly abrasive framework; it’s a delicious balance of old and new. Chris Carrier’s edit is particularly sublime – a deep, rumbling groove that we’d love to let rip inside a heaving club.
Here’s a heavenly piece of orbital deep House from a galaxy near you…
Fred P – like a boss.
It’s Monday. Life sucks, right?
Well, we can’t really fix that but have a listen to this lovely slice of tropical bliss from Selvy (who also released this banger earlier on in the year):
It’s been a while since our last interview – a chat with Dutch outfit Grey Area - so we thought we’d best get back on the wagon and get talking to some more of our favourite artists.
This week we caught up with Sam Williams, aka Chamboche, a producer who’s having a pretty damn good year. We’re big fans.
In the past, this guy has collaborated with the likes of Ejeca (see: ‘Keep The Love‘) and had BICEP remix one of his tracks (see: ‘Smoke Screen‘). Not bad when you’re training to be a primary school teacher at the same time! That should be enough context for you. Now go forth and read…
