we are thrilled to present roberto rodriguez s second release “broken b/w be yourself” on swedish brandy productions. this time roberto returns with two deep and stylish gems. “broken” with its jazzy, bouncing bass line, syncopated chord progressions and pumping pads gives this track its killer groove. spiced up with some great sensual vocal chops and mighty effective drops, this is definitely a track that stands up to all previous masterpieces that roberto released on many fine labels like compost, freerange, delusions of grandeur, house of disco, fina and eskimo, to name but a few

st. petersburg resident kito jempere is back on dirt crew with his first full release after his debut album on fata morgana and a great ep on freerange last year. following his great contribution to our deep love series we now welcome him with these two unique tracks. ranging from house to disco and jazz influences, kito found his very own style and switches easily between them. up tempo and energetic tracks with great melodies, driving bass lines and clever sample use.
his music is like a waterfall on house – organic, constantly running,sparkling and fresh.it could be the background tune for magazine beauties in st. tropez,it feels like a drive through californian valleys,or it may as well be the soundtrack tune for a full moon party on the greek islands - yes, it might indeed just be the result of many a club year. just as well, however, we can look at it as some sort of a flip side to those busy and dark times of dull and hard work back in the days, something to simply relax andm make you smile, after a hard days work, with a cigarette in one hand and a smooth drink in the other… imagine a piece of roxy music, a dancefloor in northern italy - some time in the late 80s - and joe smooths promised land.see what i mean?you picture this?well,in that case you have a pretty good idea of robertos serenades style.the original version of tell me feat.kholi is taken from the upcoming album dawn.

if it is about contemporary house music, there is no way of avoiding the northern djs & producers. first and foremost with roberto rodriguez aka manolo, who has shaped his personal funk infected old-school vibe over the last years and helped the house revive without forgetting from where it came from. his future beat investigators strictly followed the detroit heritage and his acid kings membership gave us lust for the roland tb 303 again. the bermuda project came back to cosmic again and had more than an impact on the nu disco styles. it is his pertinent mix of soulful, funky & functional dancefloor and his his effective productions who convinced the tastemakers worldwide and prepared his ground for top notch releases on labels like compost, 2020vision, freerange or delusions of grandeur and remixes for acts like yoko ono, tigerstripes, jay shepheard, the timewriter, marmion, crazy p, bellringers or vanessa daou. now the time has come for his own platform called serenades, featuring the manolesque ep - for those who like it deep, down & funky!

one of the highlights from the recent nightstarter 8 compilation – on my mind gets a remix treatment from the hottest trio of club cowboys right now. roberto rodriguez digs out his 909 out of the closet and works out a mid 90s inspired slammer, not far away from the golden times of strictly rhythm. added sample vox and the shuffled drums drives this up to the max before dropping some serious organ madness into the game. sure fire floor burner. for the vocal shy, we have included the dub as well. mano le tough brings us some of his trademark balearic deep techno which we just love to play! damn fine arrangement coupled with soothing melodies and a churner of a bassline makes this one of his finest remixes – we are happy to welcome mano on moodmusic for his first, but definitely not last guest appearance.
