essential reissue!! the producer and dj from chicago joey kay published in 1994 an ep that soon became a favorite of the 90s house djs around the world: eclectiz ep . the legendary label house jam records was responsible for editing and selling it. nowadays, in 2016 (22 years later) the owners of the label bons records have been in contact with joey kay and they have been quick to reach an agreement to make a remastered edition of the great eclectiz ep including the same tracks that the original version but at an affordable price to everyone, not favoring the speculation around these kind of musical gems, mostly in platforms like discogs. eclectiz ep has been remastered by robert feuchtl (fat of excellence)
the sixth release of the catalan label bons records comes signed by another kind of unknown (great) artist. we are talking about embezzlement society, a young producer from belfast influenced by producers like fast eddie, as well as pal joey or theo parrish. in the label of pau roca and gon he presents three cuts that go from the cheekiest hip-house (haters gon hate) to a classic raw-house vibe with a clear detroit flavour (mr. jons & stronger). furthermore, one of his mentor nowadays, the french artist fulbert (local talk, foul & sunk, rawthencity) remixes stronger and turns it into an exquisite techno-reinterpretation. vinyl only - 12” release! the benefits of the release will entirely be destinated to the syria refugees
emotive and raw: this is how house music should be. after some amazing releases on labels such as freerange and hivern discs, kresy comes back to bons records with two tracks: -ridmix (feat. the blacksun)-, a 90 s-feeling house track that will kill the dancefloors of the nightclubs this summer and -bubblegum diskzhouse-, a perfect disco-sample bomb. on the other side, guim (one half of we like turtles) presents -walking in the rain-, a kerri chandler influenced track and -love & fascination-, which combines a romantic vibe with a punchy bass line. you better dance!
this is the kind of house music that disco built! bons records is back with an ep full of soul. in the ninth release, the catalan label is nourished by four first-rate artists in an album full of disco and funk samples. slide a is for not me, a young catalan producer who performs a club version of one of the all-time essential soul records. on the other hand, madrid-based javi frías has made another of his sought after trips through disco music. on the b-side, dj bruce lee, one of the best and most active selectors in town, presents a dj-tool of house music with samples of a very well-known disco track. do you know which one it is? doc l junior, artist of label rosters as sex tags mania or music for freaks, presents a classic house track with 80 s feel to close a round ep.
if we put armando, gene hunt and steve pointdexter together in a room with a few synthesizers, some rhythm boxes, a roland 606 and a few cans of beer, what we would get is shrimp traxx. this very young, practically unknown austrian artist has just made his recording debut on bons records with five tracks that range in style from classic to trippy, psychotic acid house. these five jam sessions, made 100% using hardware, are now appearing on the catalan label. after an ep with a markedly 90s house sound, bons records is now turning towards more ghetto vibes with a record to be spun and danced to exclusively in a house club. this is not warm-up stuff!
the label run by pau roca and gon backs to disco-house! the a side features the duo michael & jackson. formed by jaime fiorito (son of the legendary dj alfredo and old crew member of phonica records) and thompson, they have pulled off a truly club bomb based on disco grooves and samples. the b side features thompson (this time solo) with soul bomb # 01, in which the red bull music academy 2010 alumni backs to unleash his passion for funk, disco and afro-latin elements into a bright track dominated by a dreamy piano. it includes two remixes by the boss of the label pau roca and the dutch edit-maker star jam master.
