parallel berlin head daniela la luz returns to her home away from home, housewax with a few friends to rework her modern classic, -did you ever-. originally released in 2014 -did you ever- was an instant classic amongst decerning house heads, but it was when detroit legend, moodymann dropped it as closing track on his dj kicks compilation the year later. the light well and truly spun onto la luz and her sublime approach of house and techno. now to kick off 2018 housewax have invited virgo 4, dah ruh and cinthie to offer their spin on -did you ever-. together they each offer 3 unique takes from house to deep techno, yet managing to stay true to the soulful flavor of the original.
the second release of wataj recordings introduces for the first time mr. tony pianola. a trip inside his conscious and unconscious mind during a night in which dreams, euphoria, lost loves and desires mixed all together give life to luce artificiale. the result is a pure italo-synth style influenced by the attraction for the experimental slow disco sensuality.
heisenberg presents the limited black series. featuring tracks from the romanian mastermind guy from downstairs, label-head saktu, moscows groove master lost.act and stan yaroslavsky the modular genius from tel-aviv. as usual its vinyl only, no digital promos or shares.
after first appearing on the label back in 2016, florence-based italo house stalwarts minimono return to vibraphone with another selection of illustrious dancefloor gems for subtler moments in the dance. oldest friend is an airy, dreamlike track laden with upper register chords, tones and fx pinging around in a reverie of deep house delight, while questions- gets locked into a loose, swinging groove with some mysterious pads swirling around the middle distance for added atmosphere. some day is a more rugged affair that bumps and wriggles in all the right places, while eleven days explores broken beat territory without losing the hazy atmosphere that permeates the ep.
