HOT WAX - Tools & Tips (June 2017)

HotWax Banner

6 tracks listed below by Dan Primaru will do all the talking;

 

1- Dragos Ungureanu & Gabriel Amaru - Keep on Going  // she001

 

 

The first EP in this session is about brotherhood, family and connection. Keep on Going in London does this at it's best, and Gabriel Amaru together with Dragos Ungureanu are the first souls to leave their sound on the first wax imprint of this label legacy. I talk like this because i know the team behind this label, the strong connections that are there which are reflected the moments of glory that they create through events and gatherings.

2- Jäfar - Fragil Musique - Fragil 021 //  Tribute to the King

 

 

Eighteen release from Fragil comes with an impressive tool from Jäfar, it is straight old-school dance floor track, reminding us about good old times, it is updated with a modern micro house fragrance from two secretive vinyl lovers, and carefully selected by another two, acting behind the label.

3- Costin Rp - Bleu Ciel //  Bleu Ciel 006 // Different Personalities 

 

Developing the genre itself, developing himself, Costin Rp getting lost in the atmospherical realm. When heard and perceived in a specific time and enviroment, these two beauties can lift you up, helping you trancend the body and keeping you in magical place we know we belong. It's something we're use to take up from Bleu Ciel music label.

4- Ada Kaleh - AK005c // Dene descris (reinterpretari part I)

 

Here is a strong one, that aims to be a reference point in our scene. Ada Kaleh comes with re-interpretations of his own well know story 'De Nedescris'. With a great all-romanian team, this EP has many colours, Nu Zau, Teluric and Priku, each putting their vibe and signature into the big rainbow. There will be a part two but this is delicious enough for me.

5- Dubtil - BodyParts Records  //  BPMS008  // Paradox EP

 

Well, when Dubtil goes out, sometimes is pretty big. I mean in the most recognizable tunes out there, he knows how to leave a mark. Vocalindas is something that will come out of our mouths when discussing some peculiar and beautiful sunrise moments spent on the beach, admiring the sun waves.

6- Ricardo Villalobos - [arpiar]  //  Empirical House 

 

And, because this can not go unnoticed, here are four tracks of Ricardo, which come out as another album of the artist. For sure the format says is a non-conventional release, the tracks we know they are old and moved our dancefloors in many many events where Arpiar representative were playing, but all is updated for the present and the release is staying as a great point in the micro-house map of the future. The tracks are a standard for all kinds of moments and for sure they will be the inspiration point for many of the artists following 'the king's'' statement about Empirical House.
