Tenacious party duo from Chicago, Shaun J. Wright & Alinka, debut their label with this tricky disco number. In tow, two mixes from Kim Ann Foxman and Stereogamous twist up the strobing, Tenaglia-inspired disco-fantasy of the original into their respective proto-house variations; both of these warped, system-testing mixes are strewn with the right amount of dazzling disco effects. ‘Journey into the Deep’ turns out to be a promising start and gets a full recommendation.
A sumptuously crafted slice of deepness from Hernan Cattaneo’s label. Mesmerising melodic elements, and a classic groove that really rocks things along. Brace for goosebumps in the breakdown.
Curling acid, minor key sub-riffs and plenty of ooh-ah chords and pads mark ‘Shadow’s outset. Add a foxily voxed topline and Monster Force’s latest is clearly on the right track.
Andy Whitby’s HARD brand has been taking over the UK’s hard dance circuit this year, with packed events across the country, as well as his highly popular monthly Hardkast. With the label now in full swing this new release features a very catchy male vocal overload on top of a piano lead breakdown, building with sharp snares and dropping with a dirty electro bassline, with a bouncy element. Fresh hard house for 2014.
