Various Artists - Four To The Floor 02
After an incredible summer that saw the Diynamic label release more big hits from boss Solomun and hot talents Adriatique, as well as hold down their fantastic outdoor parties in Ibiza, the Hamburg house stable is unleashing a brand new series of four Various Artists Eps called "Four To The Floor" – Four EPs with four tracks each, focussing on the dancefloor.
Continuing with the new talent themed series of 4 new EPs, Diynamic now hit EP2. Opening up the account is Undercatt, Yuma associates who contribute "Golden Area", which is one of the first tracks they have made together. On working with Solomun, they say "A few days after we sent over our demos, he replied personally telling us that he really liked our music and he will play it to the other guys in the Diynamic family for opinions. We were thrilled and super excited. Later we had the chance to meet him and we talked a lot. He showed us the special person he is." It’s a punchy, meaty house track that gets cut up with future sounding alien synths that will send dance floors wild.
Next up Denite & The Liquid Mirror, who have previously released on London’s Third Ear, offer "Together". Their track is a lively, up-tempo tech house affair with celestial pads, hooky synths and lots of bristling drums that drive things along in style.
Then it’s to French artist Anton Dhouran of Kumasi Music. Just 20 years old he is inspired by the likes of The xx and Stephan Bodzin and his cut "Mirage" is a make-you-reminisce house track designed for the hearts. "I had laid my guitar aside for a few months, and I wanted to make a track by including the guitar again, so I reworked a melody that I had composed some time ago and adapted it to 115 bpm. I’ve worked nearly 8 hours on the track, until I finally finished it." The drums are big and bold, the melodies are massive and the vibe is beautifully sad, the ideal closing track for Solomun’s summer festival sets.
Closing out this EP is BLOT! Feat. Lifafa who are amongst India’s foremost underground electronic music and mixed media live acts. "To me Diynamic as a label has always had a distinct identity and a warm, glorious and exciting sound. I had to wait a few years before I came up with something that I thought would fit to Diynamic’s vibe", says one half of the outfit on why they sent their tunes to the mighty Dynamic. "Empire Waste" is their jam and it is a well-constructed song with proper lyrics, a sense of sadness but also some bold key work that really strikes right at your heart.
Once again every one of these new tracks sounds fresh and exciting at the same time as fitting in nicely with the Diynamic vibe overall.
