with >slow potion<, asli takes the cold barren landscape of iceland, marries it with the deep soul of new york (think ibadan or objektivity) and then throws in a hint of banging german minimalism (think kompakt vs mobilee). and what comes out is truly a dancefloor masterpiece - beautiful and at the same time a full ‘hands in the air peaktime banger. classical strings joined by electronic beats and a throbbing bassline. on the flip side with >east city life<, he takes it even deeper. minimal yet groovy, asli builds us a perfect track for the late night

vinyl only, after a busy year and two widely acclaimed releases with record label rutilance under his belt, the time is right for the southern based french producer ortella to launch his own eponymous imprint: mad in lyon. 69001 ep - introduced by the producer himself - is the first of a series of releases in the same mood, with some new jersey inspired deep house and straight forward uncompromised groove. it does exactly what it says on the tin: -from thugs to clubs-. watch out people, lyon has never been so hot!
the spanish native premiers his first release on truesoul records, moti on, a 4 track ep packed with punchy tech house beats and rolling basslines. the ep comes fully loaded with his signature sound, some dark vocals and melodic synths. uniformed in their approach, the 4 tracks are laced with catchy hooks and casual percussion.
the second part in the hudd traxx 10th anniversary *now & then* compilation sees tracks from luna city express, sek, iz & diz and rick wade. berlin duo luna city express serve up a lush deep house groove that builds throughout the track, and will bring a smile to the faces of those who follow them on their beloved moon habour recordings. sek uses slick beats, trippy leads, a driving bassline and some *thug life* vocals to ensure this one has future classic written all over it. go back in time (to 2006 to be precise) on the then side to find iz & dizs *happy*. the words epic & journey are often misused in music but both can be mentioned about this track. it had devastating effect on first release and is set to do the same again nearly 10 years later. rick wade closes things out in fine style to fly the detroit flag on an all chicago / detroit side.
