Electronical Reeds, Three Years Of Quality Music!

Published

on

Electronical Reeds, Three Years Of Quality Music!The Brussels-based label Electronical Reeds celebrates its 3 years. With a well-established and jam-packed background, the label aims to mark this occasion with a special release. Not just a simple compilation, this label album imprints the sincere vision of today’s electronic music by Electronical Reeds and its artists. The open-minded and patient work of label management and passionate work of artists allowed Electronical Reeds to rise to a new level achieving current musical variety and quality of its catalogue. This latter is reflected by radio broadcasts in more than 65 countries around the world, and support by some of the world’s biggest DJs including Sasha, Sebastien Leger, Laurent Garnier, Stephan Bodzin, Derrick May, Agoria, Maceo Plex, Nic Fanciulli, Nick Warren, Dave Clarke, John Digweed,…
 
The album opens with the subtle and bewitched Catalunya composed by the two Hamburg-based producers, Pazul & Deepling. They immerse us in their universe of mild deep house where sensitivity meets a melancholic feel. The Brussels-based artist TMP brings us on a path of African sounds from Mali and Morocco. On those tribal sounds and synth tabs, a deep vocal sample completes the track.
 
As implied by the title, Meet You is the first collaboration between the well-known French producer Max Duke and the Belgian singer Mat Vega. Between Mat Vega’s high-pitched voice and the Max Duke’s piano melody, a Deep House anthem is draws itself with each note.
 
The following two tracks are produced by two newcomers on Electronical Reeds. O-Live, who released Past Futre last May, and O.D.Math’s, who did a remix on this mentioned EP, offer two energetic and powerful House tracks. Bring It Back presents a groovy and funky bassline while In My Head is a bit more melodic.
 
The sixth track was composed by one of the Electronical Reeds’ headliners, Felix Cage. After seven EPs, the success story between the artist and the label continues. With a track name like Visionnaire (visionary), there is something prescient about the upcoming projects. This production reflects the subtle musical richness and melancholic groove tat Felix Cage instills in his different works.
 
Going deeper in the release we discover U.S.E., a collaboration between a well-known artist and close friend of the label Pole Folder and the Icelandic singer Simon Latham. Oscillating between Deep and Progressive House, the track offers a dreamy and hypnotic 8- minutes journey filled with sparkles of emotions.
 
After the emotional build up with U.S.E. we are back on the dancefloor with a House track courtesy of Belgian Lex Newton. Camden reminds to every electronic music lovers the early days of House Music with a groovy bassline inspired by the classic anthems of the 90’s. This approach continues with Brussels-based Superdrums and his funky You Snooze You Looze. Both are clearly dancefloor killers.
 
The Parisian artist DJ Kaine held on to his Dub universe through his track What Do You Want Me To Say. This later is a perfect springboard to introduce Yann & Tristan’s title Barthroom Strangler a powerful techno detour of this release clearly aimed at those inspired by the atmosphere of Laurent Garnier’s set.
 
Before closing the release with another Parisian producer Ephti and his track P.A.M. that unites Electronica and Techno, the album welcomes the Berlin artist Marquez Ill, under his alias Arquette with his 7-minutes powerful Tech House bomb!
 
Those 13 tracks of the anniversary label album consolidate the foundation that Electronical Reeds has been patiently building over the past 3 years that will serve as a new standard for the upcoming projects and strengthens the will of having a real open-minded approach of the Electronic Music.

New Esotera EP 'Old As Time' — Exclusive Review
Londoner electronic musician Esotera has spent many days and nights in the studio producing the upcoming ‘Old As Time’ EP and obtaining outstanding results. This work represents his perfectionism and daily dedication to music. Here, he delivers Progressive House tunes that also integrate Techno in a different direction. After mixing both styles, Esotera got the secret formula for one of the best atmospheric and deliciously dreamy EPs of the year! Can’t wait to download this great material in February via Flemcy Music. In conclusion, I will definitely use these three tracks on my next DJ set. Meanwhile, you can read my track-by-track review below.

1 – Old As Time WOW what an opener! Such a masterpiece tune that will take you on an audio journey. Lovely soft harmonies and progressive sounds made it quite enjoyable and relaxing at the same time.

2 – High Moments
The second track is pretty original. It features eerie/dark music elements and pulsing beats on repeat. Esotera also adds male vocal snippets that sound like being taken from a speech. Certainly, a creative effort, don’t you think?

3 – LIGO
Hey Techno lovers, this is definitely for the clubs! I like it because it possesses dynamism and energy. The most uplifting song and probably never will go out of day as it sounds futuristic.

AVAILABLE SOON ON BEATPORT

In Review: Whitedrives – Deepest Joy

In Review: Whitedrives - Deepest Joy
Whitedrives, a music production duo from London formed in the 90s by Martin James and Wadcutter have just released a great EP called ‘Deepest Joy’. This release has caught my attention because it offers 100% pure Electronica music that is not common to hear nowadays among the worldwide DJs. There are also two outstanding remixes by Ettica and Alan Cross who put their own personal touch to the original. The EP features 3 tracks in total, and each one comes with a distinctive rhythm which is beneficial for your music collection. It’s diverse in sound and YES I like it!

Let’s dive in with a track-by-track review:

1 – Deepest Joy (Original Mix) Keep your eyes closed while listening to this beautiful track and you will be transported into a mystical world. If I’m not wrong, you will listen clearly to a Mantra on repeat and also continuous traditional drums. All these melodic ingredients were mixed of course with Whitedrives’ Electronica music. A very relaxing experience.

2 – Deepest Joy (Ettica Remix) The second track is a remix by Ettica and obviously it was intended for the clubs. Techno fans will love how creatively a hi-hat pattern was added to the original. The spiritual vocals were not removed from this version, and they match perfectly with the upbeat kick. An interesting subtle/minimal approach.

3 – Deepest Joy (Alan Cross) Here DJ Alan Cross goes much further with this remix. I think he uses a more elaborate technique by implementing more progressive and rich sounds to the mix. My favorite from the EP!

Billboard Chart Topping Artist DROZE Returns With Solo EP To Get You Back On The Dance Floor

Billboard Chart Topping Artist DROZE Returns With Solo EP To Get You Back On The Dance Floor

Gonna Be Music singer and songwriter, DROZE released this month a brilliant EP that is sure to dominate the dance floors. With his innate talent in House music, ‘The Droze Project’ EP proves that any of the new songs can reach the Billboard Dance Charts as he did in the past with the single “Running (Out Of Time)”. His new material features a total of 4 tracks, where DROZE showcase nice vocals and catchy House beats. Important music producers such as Giuseppe D, KC Anderson, Oba Frank Lords and Michael M were also part of this project. Sincerely, this is an EP that can be on repeat forever… and you’ll never get bored!

Check out my track-by-track review below:

1 – Right Here In my opinion, this is a strong EP opener. As a fan of male vocals in dance music, I would dare to say DROZE has a unique soulful style and a big voice that will make your jaw drop. This track is a clear example of that, and I like it.

2 – No Time The second track starts off with a notable hi-hat pattern. Here the rhythm sounds dark and simple but it matches perfectly with the serious lyrics of the song. He takes an interesting direction on this track, I think it’s different than the other three tracks, which are more danceable.

3 – Tell Me After listening to this tune a couple of times, now I understand why it’s my favorite track on this EP. The main reason:  IT’S HIGHLY ADDICTIVE. His voice sounds clear, and there’s a wonderful blend of styles from soulful to upbeat.

4 – Carry On The DROZE Project EP ends with fantastically fun music! It features the Gonna Be All-Stars and somehow it reminds me of the Classic House era of the 90s. Get ready to jump, sing and shake your booty, this song could be the next hit in 2017. 🙂
