Summer chasers with one foot in Brazil and the other in Barcelona, the Tree Sixty One label is pleased to present a new EP and highlight a couple of shifts. The artwork on the cover is a fresh look for them and the sounds contained within likewise incorporate a new style for Brazilian duo Tropicall, comprised of Ariel Haller and Fabio PSK who each have over two decades of production experience. Hoping to glorify the old and new school essence of disco, funk, and house music, the label’s aim is to provide a mix of classic and traditional soulful house blended with the most modern deep and garage takes on the sound. So far feedback has been solid, gaining support and play from house legends like Kerri Chandler, Danny Krivit, Tyree Cooper, and more. The I Just Can’t Stop EP with Tropicall featuring singers Bárbara Nay and Sabrina C is also sure to hit the mark.
The title track contains instantly familiar vocals and piano stabs that harken back to the good ol’ days while the rubbery bass line is in tune with the most forward sounds of today. In much the same ivory light, Bárbara Nay’s diva vocals on “Nightlife” are accompanied by classic pianos and a show-stealing bass display with responsive layered chords that share its slightly old school edge. “Sambahouse” is a serious percussive workout, as to be expected, making full use of Brazilian rhythms and once again giving way to a hybrid low end that also serves as a lead. Taking a darker turn, “Getaway” makes use of some rougher stylistic elements often found in the grimier corners of the UK. Sabrina C’s vocals are embellished and would not sound out of place in a pop song, but — make no mistakes about it — this one is headed straight for the underground clubs. Overall the release looks to the past while making forward progress, a tug of war in which the DJs and clubgoers will both win.

The Impossible series of EPs is a place for artists and producers in the Proceed Records family to stretch out a bit and try some new sounds. If a track doesn’t quite sonically fit on an artist’s EP on Proceed but still has the quality and dance floor appeal that demands to be heard then this is the place for it. Thus the third in a series, the Impossible EP #3, gathers five tracks from some of Proceed’s shining Italian producers, this time showcasing them on the Rebus Records sub-label.
Proceed’s proprietor, DJ / producer Haldo, who has also released cuts through Transport Recordings, Conya, and Adaptation Music, is represented by his pure and joyous house Deepfunkmix of “Rebus’funk.” A sure-shot bass line is guided by wonderfully atmospheric pads, key stabs, and synth accents with reverberating disco strings cutting through the layers. Haldo’s touch can also be heard in his additional keyboards on the EP’s contribution from Fabio Mazzei, a talented new deep house producer from Catanzaro. “Just Me Again Down Here” is a hypnotic trip with growling bass and a vocal drop that asks the listener, “what is your sound?.” Having participated on the second edition of the Impossible EP projects, Fuscobeat & Magrini are welcomed back with “Green Afrika.” The track is a tribal floor-filler with flavorful, deep chords by Haldo once again. Tuscany-based Tony Barbato first started DJ’ing throughout Italy in the late ’90s enjoying production success and gigs at venues like the Parisian Djoon club. His work on “Love Is Endless” gives retro inspirations from past decades new life in a modern, big room context. Finally, Odo Makes A Smile compliments the package with his vision, commanding deep house vibes out of otherwise minimal techno elements in “Not Too Bad.” – See more at: http://8dpromo.net/campaign/show/622/0a754bd3-23b5-11e3-98cc-b53b066f182e#sthash.ncRGGD9s.dpuf
RiCHARD.GEAR steps up to the plate for the bodytalk label’s second release with his new “Strange Magick” / “Be Free” single. RiCHARD.GEAR is the moniker of Austin born-and- bred DJ / producer Davey Schacherl. He is a longtime staple of the city’s underground club scene, having been active at many residencies and parties throughout the last ten years, most recently as a member of the Machine Discotheque DJ crew and party collective. Davey is also the manager for Whiskey Pickle, a label created at the onset of 2009 which has seen much success with their eclectic catalog of releases.
The release kicks off with the banging track “Strange Magick.” A feel-good floor filler with a house party vibe, it features a swinging beat, energetic vocal stabs, and sirens that are sure to stir up a mean ruckus. The punchy bass line sets the tone for the track with classic layered chord hits and a lush synth lead that ties it all together with both style and grace.
The second track, “Be Free,” takes on a more club-oriented atmosphere, employing creeping chord stabs and a headstrong bass line that eventually make way for the synth- laden breakdown. A pitched-down vocal reminds the listener that being yourself is the way to absolute freedom.
The mighty George Horn (Acryl Music, DeepWit) is tagged with remix duties for “Strange Magick.” George takes the original to a deeper realm of class and sophistication, where detailed chord work and precise production turn the track into an enchanting and melodic voyage.
Last, but not least, is the remix of “Be Free,” marking the debut of the mysterious production DJ duo M.I.J.A.S.. The track is reinterpreted into a raw, stripped-down techno jam with a massive kick drum and a morphing acid bass line that couple to form a dirty, jacking groove. Deep, reverberating chords complement the other pieces throughout, giving the track an extra element of unrestrained energy.
