after a couple of sparking, floor-oriented releases by uk luminary henry wu and head honcho pablo valentino, mcde recordings continues its explorations of dance music spectrum with a brand new offering, right on time for the summer. . now batting is nomadic beatsmith hugo lx, who develops a new chapter in his multi-faceted discography with this 5 track opus, ranging from classic house to disco flavored jams, detouring through the ambiant and jazz fields, always with a certain eastern vibe to it. with great help from his regular contributors on bass, keys and horns, he delivers a soundscape that aims to be vibrant, powerful, yet sensual and most of all, prove to be timeless
finally a fresh mcde is announced! new one from long time deep house/broken producer, pablo valentino... . its been four years since label co-founder pablo valentino became a daddy, and almost as old is the idea of him releasing a record on our imprint. so what makes more sense than to dedicate this record to hugo-joão, his son? on -my son s smile- we can hear a recording of hugo-joão s laughter over a mellow, summery house track that has been a big favorite of danilo over the years. with a little help from lyon producer patchworks, who played bass on the track, valentino pulls off one of his most sophisticated productions yet.
2017 repress !! mcde recordings is happy to add a fresh new talent from down under to the label, harvey sutherland, who has been releasing some amazing records in the last two years. danilo has been supporting him since his very first release, and we are proud to put out some of his trademark cosmic boogie biz on this double sider for mcde. a one-time session player and behind-the-scenes man, analog synthesist harvey sutherland emerged from melbournes bubbling underground with a cassette tape in hand. 2013s nexus ep on this thing records - a trip through lo-fi boogie and roland house music - was a cult hit amongst dancefloor aficionados, priming listeners for a lauded ep on echovolt records and the best-selling * brothers* on voyage recordings. his music has been played and appreciated worldwide, with enthusiastic support from prominent tastemakers and weekend warriors alike.
