Onda Sonora Guest Mix

Monday, September 12th, 2011

As we’re gearing up for the party, Brussels’ Onda Sonora, one of our guests, cooked up this tasty mix of classic house cuts, giving you a taste of things to expect. Few know their house like these guys and it only took ‘em an hour, if that, to provide you with the ultimate proof. This seamless funker of a mix takes you straight to a Stateside dancefloor somewhere in the early 90′s and to one in the not-so-distant-future in Ghent. Can’t wait to hear these guys mix it up live on the 23rd!

Any mix that kicks off with WPH’s San Soda can do no wrong in my book, so I clicked play and started bopping along to this very well put together mix by Brussels’ Onda Sonora. If you’re into the deeper ends of the house spectrum you might find yourself liking it as much as I did…

From the city often referred to as Motown comes Omar S. One of my favorite producers at the moment and still on the Ford Motor Company payroll. To live up to the legacy of fellow Detroit citizens such as Juan Atkins, Jeff Mills, Kevin Saunderson, Derrick May, Carl Craig and a whole movement of beat pioneers is no mean feat. To do it with the versatility and ease of Omar S is just baffling. He releases all his material on his own label FXHE Records, a little sidestep on Theo Parrish’s Sound Signature imprint aside. FXHE has also been instrumental to the rise of producers like Jus Ed and Kyle Hall and Omar himself hes been busy engineering for Mr Parrish too. In 2009 Fabric approached the man for a mix and he churned out a corker with nothing but Omar S tunes and he sounded like noone else! In the fine tradition of his Detroit predecessors his music works on both body and soul and oozes depth, something that’s often missing in club tracks. Anyway listen to some of his tunes below and judge for yourself:

For me, one of the tunes of 2010 so far is without a doubt the Floating Points remix of Four Tet’s “Sing”. The original can be found on Four Tet’s no less than sublime There Is Love In You LP but to miss out on the aforementioned remix would be a shame so I suggest you hunt that one down as well.
Floating Points a.k.a. Sam Shepherds is one of the new breed of producers who constantly blur the lines between different genres. This young Mancunian started playing the piano at age 9 and got his hands on a pair of turntables when he was 15. The rest as they say is history and nowadays he’s been making heads turn with a plethora of releases such as the Vacuum Ep on his and Alex Nut’s Eglo Records featuring the seminal “Truly” tune (featured below).  I also added another noteworthy remix for Bonobo which I think is sheer bliss! Anyway, I’ll let the music do the talking:

Scuba comes with the deepness

Tuesday, April 6th, 2010

Ever since his first release called Timba, Scuba aka Paul Rose has made heads turn with a constant slew of quality releases on, amongst others,  his very own Hotflush imprint. Next to running one of the most interesting dubstep labels around he’s also responsible for one of the genre’s leading clubnights. If Sub:stance at Berlin’s Berghain doesn’t ring a bell, I suggest you get to know right after reading this post, as it’s widely known to be one of Europe’s best nights in what’s been coined Berlin’s best venue by many. With artists such as Skream, Peverelist, Shackleton, T++, 2562, Untold, Martyn and of course Scuba himself gracing the decks it goes without saying the nights serve as a testament to the forward thinking philosophy that’s been instrumental to the musical legacy of Germany’s capital. Fresh on the heels of his Sub:stance mix cd released on the Ost Gut label comes his 2nd full length LP titled Triangulation.  The dubstep label has come short to describe the music Scuba has been responible for and it sure doesn’t represent the wide variety of sounds on this album. Intricate percussion, haunting synths and otherworldly vibes all come together on this slice of superb electronica. With hints of ambient, house, garage, 2-step and dubstep this album caters to all music enthousiasts and should be able to cross many a border. This album has been on heavy rotation at the Limited Addiction estate so I felt I had to share it with all you beloved readers of this here blog!

I want to do more than talk tees on my blog so I’ll use this space to put a spotlight on artists from various fields that I’m feeling. Today’s Man Of The Moment is Julio Bashmore. This young Bristolian has been making serious waves the last couple of months and more and more dj’s from the dubstep, funky and house scenes have been battering the sounds of young Julio. I first heard his Um Bongo’s Revenge track last year and then ran into his World Peace tune on the Claude Von Stroke Fact mix and they both blew me away, he’s also had a track, titled The Moth featured on Fabric’s excellent Elevator Music compilation alongside other new school heroes Untold and Martyn and recently Vice magazine jumped the bandwagon and had Mr Bashmore make them a mixtape. Lately, a wicked remix for Delphic’s epic Halcyon has been doing the rounds as well. The hype is well deserved to say the least, as I have yet to hear a bad tune from the man. If you don’t know what i’m on about and if you haven’t heard his offerings I suggest you listen to the Fact mini mix he did a while ago as most essential Bashmore choons are included and it’s a nice little mix to boot.
