mihai popescu s release follows metereze s lineage of house infused grooves, delivering feelings with each of the 4 tracks that shape mtrz010.1 and not any kind of feelings but those that can change the dancefloor collective state of mind in a blink of an eye.
!! ltd repress !! metereze follows its karmic path of delivering stomping dance floor oriented cuts, this time with the help of john dimas, expressed into the telexistence ep. working both as access keys as well as soul transporters, the 4 tracks are a peek into an alternate reality, where room filling baselines go as mood uplifters along with the textured chords that submerge the crowd into the deep waters of dreamy house music.
sticking to its mission on digging out fresh sounds from the romanian underground, metereze proposes limpid and his antagonistic 4-tracks house journey for its 6th release.
on the deeper side of this record youíll find 2 pieces that complement each other to perfection: uncle sens, with its simple structure on the surface level thatís more like an invitation to discover the elaborate work done on the sample level, and copacul vietii, rooted into the deep house glory days yet connecting this fertile ground with the future dancefloors through dreamy loops reverbed around the phat bassline. flip the record to reveal the side that would most certainly drain the dancefloor energy: the chicago-esque piano to break the fast cavernous patterns in speologie versus zibiís techno structure, softened just enough to keep us from sliding into the darkness.
tested already on the house music hungry crowds by raresh, the name behind metereze.
metereze keeps a steady path of releases and this time around it is young star vincent iulian who picks up the ball and delivers four astounding tracks on his four quarters ep. also a native of bacau like dubtil and raresh among others vincent has already released on labels like naural or moment.
started is probably the grooviest of them all and for sure youve heard it before if youíve been attending the right parties. breaking the boundries between techno and house this is a true masterpiece. on the same side he also shows a more relaxed atmosphere filled with jazzy percussions and easy synths. stors kinda makes you stop and dream for a while.
first on side b we have another dancefloor monster. no more is is driven by a hypnotic synth and infused with enough drums to keep you on the move for the whole 7 minutes. le van a cantar keeps the catchy driving mood but this time iulian explores a more broken path. bubbly voices, snares and a haunted synth emerging now and then make this corner as interesting as the rest.
four quarters is a must have for any serious collector. not to mention if you are a dj.
taking a few steps off itís usual housy path, metereze presents a fresh new face and a more techno approach to dance music. it is melodie that signs the 4th installment and he is taking it deep into the realms of acid with 3 tracks that not only go well together but they are all meant to make you move in a big way.
acid sunday is as acidic as the name suggests it but in the end itís the most poetic of the 3. the subtle pads are kinda dreamy but the 303 sounds make it super driving. on the same side we have rhythmico which is dark, percussive and powerful. subtle background bleeps complete the wandering synth that comes and goes but never really seems to go away.
housed on side b justa is a techno monster in its own right. sonically very close to the other two, this is by far the darkest track on this ep. and probably the strongest. techno infused house you may call it or whatever, this is the kind of track that puts you on a serious move whenever, wherever.
