for the fifth instalment on their label the vbx crew taps frontman ferro once more. his i change, just like you ep is a self proclaimed artistic statement from the man, whos rising star shows no signs of slowing down.
with the dust still flying around from the mammoth lessizmore 10 year anniversary compilation earlier this year, the label jumps right back into action hunting down exciting new talent in the corner of contemporary house and techno they call home
the development of the vbx platform has been in step with ferros coming of age as an artist. one almost cannot be mentioned without reference to the other. it is for this reason that it made perfect sense to invite ferro for the second installment of the vbx label. join us and immerse yourself into ferros musical universe full of heady modulating soundscapes and shimmering percussion.
ferro s first full ep for infuse finds the dutch native in fine form with his you are not your mind ep. weaving together intricate rhythms with his honed technical approach the tracks have a distinctly organic feel, equally pleasing at home or in the midst of a hazy dance floor.
after 3 years of hosting and co-hosting several successful events the guys at vbx decided to expand their musical horizon in the form of a vinyl only label. none other then vbx mainstay ferro is responsible for the kickoff ep. >time will tell< perfectly showcases the various facets of ferro s musical persona. the a-side track >time< is the most introspective and hypnotic on this ep. the background atmospherics swell and fall, while the rhythm steadily chugs forward, slowly making you lose your sense of time. the growling sounds and heavy kicks that form the backbone of >mushin< make this track the most straightforward club banger of the bunch, while still maintaining an edge through the intricate sampling of armand van helden s >the funk phenomenon<. ferro rounds up the ep with >opening the seven<, nagging vocal snips serve as a melodic hook while distorted rhythmical elements give the track its typical ferro sense of swing.
the talented artist ferro comes with a stunning ep on this brand new label called souzou. two killing microgroove originals and a stunning remix by daze maxim! this vinyl only label will certainly be one to watch out for! enjoy!
we are very happy to announce this extremely talented dutchman right here ferro with many successful releases on labels like moscow records, karton, tzinah & moral fiber we are glad to have him on board.

guts, a producer exiled in ibiza, and mambo, a los angeles-based painter, have been lounging on the shore with the sound of the waves lapping in the background as they sift through the vinyl for their beach diggin collection. far, far from the mouldy-smelling, lightless cellars where record hunters usually hang out. diggin disks as others dig beaches, because getting your hands on a good vinyl, its grooves virtually unexplored, is like stumbling on a dazzling expanse of virgin sand.
