dutchman william caycedo graces adult only with his presence, as the label hits its 49th release. one of the newest members of the slapfunk family from the netherlands, william is young, hungry and talented - bringing that fresh energy to adult only with aplomb.
rawax welcomes william cycedo to the family! with his fantastic track on the rawax x slapfunk - slap wax ep 1, william convinced us to requst a full artist ep. well...here it is: bag of boom ep - a hell of a debut!
having sprung into action with the sol explorer ep on girasole, william caycedo is back with a new selection of jams on the ever-developing slapfunk. as the label s remit for minimal house and techno broadens, we re treated to low slung leftfield beats on -booty call- before the peppier broken beat groove of -ain t no joke-. -creepin - and -g groove- head into more familiar territory for slapfunk fans, but there s still space for the crisp, laid back funk of -tales from the west- and the off-kilter jazzy vibes of -yes we do- thrown in for good measure.
for the first release on girasole records we introduce you to william caycedo from amsterdam. the first track dreamcatcher is a real deep but banging house track with a heavy bassline and it lets you fly away. return to free side has this slow vibes but there is always changing something untill the end. departure is all about that bassline and that sexy percussion. scapegoat is just a monster on the b-side.
who’s susan? following our starlet from djibouti to leiden she keeps bringing certified legitness to you and your crew. the first 12” release named “you are the prototype” is a v.a. with tracks by raar, axefield and william caycedo, spanning three different vibes, all within susan’s comfort zone.
5 years ago it all started with our very first release the raw joints 1. we wanted to build a platform for our artists to publish their music as they see it. now 13 releases further we re ready to introduce our biggest project ever since: raw joints 5!! to celebrate our 5th anniversary we decided to do something special and we had so many tracks that we decided to do a triple lp with 14 tracks on it. a lot of new/old artists have contributed to this heavy weight dance floor bomb with various styles and energy. to top it off we asked our good friends from studio airport to complete this thing with a proper raw joint sleeve. the mask is the face of slapfunk and inside this gatefold sleeve you will find us all dancing to that one thing which unites us all: music! shout out to our dear friend vincent de boer for drawing the magic. with all the celebrations comes a europe tour as well so hold tight!
