brand new sub-label of the long-standing and highly respected adult only imprint from chris carrier. the first release comes from romania dj/producer funk e, who made his name as resident of the musically forward-thinking ibiza party zoo project, and has released on names as big as raum and desolat. the 2-track package is made with the dancefloor in mind, pumping tech-house that feels nicely minimal, with plenty of drive and bassline.
big with mathias kaden, dorian paic, meat, robert dietz, chistian burkhardt.... the second release for this year is also coming from laurentiu gavrila better known as funk e. the tracks blew our mind right away and here is also another thought we would like to share with you for this series of two eps divided in part 1 and 2. string theory - 2 pianos that are in the same room, if u play one note at one of the pianos, the string with the very same note from the other piano will resonate as well. that string is the heart!
the first release in 2012 is coming from funk e better known as laurentiu gavrila hailing from romania.he just started to put out his first productions recently like for example on the desolat x mas sampler.his productions caught our full attention immediately though and we are pretty sure that you will hear a lot more interesting things coming fom this young man in the near future. he has his very own style of producing already and when you listen to his music you also might guess why he has chosen this artist name - the man for sure got the funk!

following on the psyfunk label compilation, that shed a great deal of attention on the budding argentine scene, is a full ep from alan castro. alan castro’s track “mi alma intoxicada” was a highlight of various artists #01 , definitively floaring and delicately rolling. on this new ep, castro shows his complex capacities in composition. “ciderfunk” is without a doubt one of the most mind-boggling tracks we’ve heard for a very long time. backed by “pacuriver” and “db mucho” which are both equally as intricate, as the epically adventurous a-side.

waxwing pops up on re-fix with a crafty, chopped up soulful house approach that will sit right with fans of max graef and felix lenferink. -can you- is a summery jam with plenty of sliced and diced vocals and romantic sweeps of melody, while -longfunk- gets a cheeky shuffle in the mix with splashy drum hits and nifty rhodes stabs to get bodies popping uncontrollably. -do it for em- gets even twitchier in the edit, using all kinds of heavily funked up samples to create a killer groove. -stand it- takes a more classic new jersey approach without losing that instinct for crafty twirls and curls to spice the mix up.
microfunk ep volume 3 takes minimal drum n bass to a whole new level. while the starting track by subwave and bop has a strong summer flavor that’s perfect for meeting the sunrise, the second one by abstract elements & electrosoul system takes you on a spacey journey and drops you into its clean, minimalistic groove. on the flipside we have deep, smooth vibes by dissident (aka kontext) and a trippy idm track by microfunk crew. you can easily drop the a-side to impress a party with the deeper side of drum n bass, whereas the b-side is well suited to home listening and chill-out rooms.
soul pattern is the name of mac-kee’s new vinyl label. it’s synonymous with the musical focus on different spheres of house, especially raw house and chicago house, in which the art of the dj is rooted since the early 1990s. but anyone who thinks, that the label will be limited by following a pattern like scheme, is very much mistaken! rather soul pattern wants to reinvent itself with every release.
fouk might have been curating outplay since 2013, but their butterfunk ep is in fact the duos first proper ep on their own imprint. its not that theyve been resting on their laurels: they ve drip-fed a handful of eps on the likes of heist and house of disco over the past few years, and released solo efforts on kolour ltd and razor n tape that stormed the charts. it s been fascinating to see the dutch pair slowly break the mould, moving from heavy sampling in favour to an emphasis on original instrumentation and production. the butterfunk ep is fine showcase of their prowess in the studio, loaded to the hilt with contemporary dancefloor funk. things kick off with the rolling drums, off-beat percussion and seriously infectious hammond lines of organ freeman. title track butterfunk is aimed squarely at the hips with its smooth keys and perfectly placed vocal, while some acid lines give the track a little edge. flip over for the bumping wong way, a chunky workout with a rubber bassline. the finale of the ep is winter, a fantastic slice of 80s inspired downtempo mushroom jazz.
