Jose Wated is one of the most influential faces of Ecuador’s electronic music scene. He started playing and releasing music in the 90’s, with diverse aliases and groups. In 2009, he created one of the most popular festivals in Ecuador, called ‘Montañita Dance Music and Arts’ and also co-founded the Electromundo Parties, where he had the privilege to perform and present artists such as Seth Troxler, Mr. C, Franco Bianco and many others. After playing in every South American country, he focused on producing new sounds, but also by keeping that old-school vibe, which has become his main signature. 2013 is a year full of novelties for Jose, since his first vinyl EP will see the light at Dilek Records and it’s also his first release produced in collaboration with Encebolladoman also known as Eduardo (the best kept secret in the Ecuadorian arsenal), who added his amazing vocals and productions skills to Jose’s already astonishing work. This is definitely a true collaboration between two friends, full of talent.
Just in time for the South American Summer and the European Winter, this release will bring you a lot of light, warmth and sun. On remix duties, you’ll find Brett Johnson, with his version of ‘Satisfy My Soul’. His sound is best known as groovy, bumping house with a hearty dose of techno elements, crafted and mixed in a way that is truly identifiable as his own. His latest releases on Visionquest, Resopal and Cynosure between other labels, have been acclaimed by fans and critics. It’s truly an honor to have him on board, at Dilek. On the vinyl’s B side, Arquette aka Marquez Ill, introduces the second remix of this EP. Co-owner of Voltage Musique Records, he is nowadays behind the decks everywhere in Europe, he's also known for his productions with Scottish vocalist Leigh Myles. Arquette’s deep, soulful and refreshingly original take on electronic music is always surprising, full of quality and little gems to discover. Nadja Lind is also present with her remix of ‘Otro Gato’. When it comes to describe this lady; the first word that comes up is definitely passion! She also produces tracks and remixes with Dub and Deep Tech House influences and this remix is again the proof of her amazing energy and skills.
Yet another strong vinyl release on Dilek Records, always ready to show you the bright side of this industry, full of creative people joining forces to offer you music made with lots of heart and joy.
