DJ W!LD – Trans Europe Express – Roush Label

Ancient Aztec circular design

Of course DJ W!LD’s latest production was going to appear in Magazine Sixty. Not just because the title makes reference to one of our favourite pieces of electronic music but also because it kicks and rocks like all the other fiery productions generated by the DJ. The title fuels eight minutes of brutal drums and bass in typical keynote style while ending via a fizzy pulse of Acid, and is then followed by the equally smouldering rhythms of Peecome, contrasting by channelling a soulful slice of eighties melody throughout the breakdown. Next, Half Way loops magical, atmospheric piano over spoken words while grainy, robust drums ignite the arrangement. Finally, the Hanfry Martinez of Trans Europe Express completes with an insistent remix that also factors light into shade as the swirl of moody pads add defiant brushes of emotional colour.

Release: September 6

Psychemagik feat. Renegade
Black Noir Schwarz
Crosstown Rebels

CRM_121_LabelADon’t quite know why it took me a second listen but in love with this now. Psychemagik are producer’s you clearly pay attention too while having set the world alight with their diverse approach to music making that always keeps you second guessing. In this instance devilish House beats and delicious rumbling Bass feel all the more addictive care off an invigorating arrangement of punchy vocal edits and off the wall effects. Remixes come care of Tensnake who gives it a more sinister twist and the excellent Minéo who then adds a creative, funky groove to the title.

System2
Smoke & Mirrors EP
System2

Debuting on their brand new label Manchester’s System 2 give House Music a definite twist with the inclusion of funky breaks à la James Brown style. That and the cutting horn stabs lend it all a distinctive funkiness which oozes 70’s grittiness that’s so hard to capture authentically. Pounding and relentless this sits neatly between House and Hip-Hop as vocal snippets tease you into defying the possible distinctions. Hanfry Martinez then stokes the tension further via his remix that gives the breaks and bass a crisper edge feeling all the more vital for it. Nobodies Freakin, plays with those same influences on another original production that you can’t help but move to, leaving Body to end with a more challenging groove befitting of the EP’s serious intent.

Various Artists
Future Disco Vol. 7 – ‘Til The Lights Come Up

Number seven in the series continues with the concept that in ways sums up the place where everyone seeks to be: Future Disco. And opening with Sonny Fodera feat. Cajmere super sassy ‘You’re The One’ is a hard act to follow but the one thing this compilation isn’t short on and that’s flair as Sean Brosnan’s mix traverse’s the highlife. For me the moodier moments are all the more intriguing such as the Psychemagik remix of Mirror People ‘Kaleidoscope’ but then the irresistible funk from the likes of  Benoit & Sergio’s ‘Shake Shake’ comes a pretty close second. For some reason this compilation seems more diverse than the previous with happy peak-time tracks easily offset by a wider selection of styles, leaving the haunting tones of Tale Of Us & Clockwork ‘Lost Keys’ to end on an amazing low note.

El Vagabundo feat. Pablo J
Luv Lite

This stunning production contains everything I love about nightclubs. From the Latin inspired percussion to the Flamenco styled guitar coupled with deep basslines these 9 minutes of sheer Balearic pleasure are a joy from start to finish. Scan Mode Sound Sistema Dub follows by stripping down to essentials on what is another equally irresistible take. Two versions from Portugal’s Jepe then follow and finish, although it’s hard to choose between the weirdness of the Intercontinental Planetary mix or the House rhythms of the Red Sand Mix. Sunshine music.
