DOMINIC SMITH – DIG DEEP EP (MONOG RECORDS)

Irish DJ and producer Dominic Smith makes his full debut on Monog Records with the superb Dig Deep EP. Dominic is no stranger to these shores having delivered a fantastic remix on Luis Bravo’s Switch Dance at the start of 2015. We know this guy loves his house music and how he dissects genres and moulds them into cutting edge grooves. Since grasping the inner workings of Ableton he has been relentless in his approach to producing as he leaves no stone unturned. It is this attention to detail that has gained the attention of various labels including Monog, we have no doubt there will be much more from this guy in the future so stay tuned.

Dig Deep intros with a wonderful punchy kick and a warm fading bass note alongside some super crispy hats and snappy claps. The track already oozes deep tech vibes that will definitely have asses shaking with its infectious rhythms. Cool vocals come through and are joined by a deep reverberating bassline that gets the groove going into overdrive. Throughout the track we are treated to bouts of sharp stabs that cut through the lower frequencies with ease and leave us wanting more. On the break the sound descends into a smooth and sultry affair with those beautiful chords and some very cool spoken vocals that spew out an urbanised theme before we get thrust right back into the main groove. Top notch stuff yet again from this guy, not to be missed.

Dominic teams up with Irish DJ and producer Sonny Andreucetti aka Sonny Alsalmo to deliver the sublime Don’t Stay In. Sonny is known for being a hard working producer, often pending long hours in his home studio. He has a passion for various styles including dubstep and tech house, and hi mixes can be heard on various online radio shows each month. Well worth keeping an eye on this one for the future. The track intros with classic thumping kick and bright open hat combi. Sharp vocal one shots break through alongside some very cool rising chords and glistening synths. A proper deep and throbbing bass takes over the sound as the layers build forming a solid rhythmic flow. The break throws up another super cool vocal that adds a ton of character to the sound as well as bringing a raw, urban element. A superb slice of deep tech that will be a welcome addition in any set no doubt.

KRUNO KERETA – BALL & CHAIN EP (MONOG RECORDS)

Up next at Monog we welcome back Croatian DJ and producer Kruno Kereta with the fantastic Ball & Chain EP. His last outing, Disquiet proved popular among the minimalists and we have no doubt that this new cut will not disappoint.

The Original Mix intros with a classic kick that packs a punchy as gritty synths lurk in the background. The synths carve out a deep rooted groove that works its way into your brain. Subtle hats and an ever evolving percussion arrangement build up a steady flowing rhythm as a raw bass creeps through. The track takes on a very hypnotic flow that will keep those feet dancing no doubt.

Portuguese DJ and producer Luis Bravo also returns with another of his sublime remixes. This time around we have his Chained Remix and yet again he delivers the goods. A pioneer on the Portuguese Techno front, Luis brings his own unique style that gains great support from many quarters. The remix here sets off with a subtle intro as an etching synth effect lulls the brain. A nice and chunky kick comes through alongside a crispy hat and the rhythm starts to build smoothly. The synths gather pace and take on many guises while a soft, warm bass meanders through the sound. A real solid grooving deep track that is a definite must have.

Rounding up this superb EP we get drawn deeper into the groove with Hassle. A sublime intro filled with a punchy kick and a wonderful, spacious synth that pans from left to right and gives off a futuristic vibe. Classic styled percussions keep the rhythm in check and add to the tech flavour of the sound. The synths continue to layer up creating a kaleidoscope of colourful sounds alongside a cool vocal one shot. Such an epic ride that will be a welcome addition in many sets for sure.

LUIS BRAVO – SWITCH STANCE EP (MONOG RECORDS)

Portuguese DJ and producer Luis Bravo returns to Monog with the superb Switch Dance EP. We last saw Luis back in December 2013 with Yin which went down a storm all over. Since then he has notched up a very impressive release count across many labels including Hi Profile Recordings, Au Records, Dopplegaenger, Minar Records and HiFi Stories. Switch Dance also comes with two fantastic remixes from Dominic Smith and Kruno Kereta.

Up first we have the Original Mix which gets right into a deep rooted groove from the get go. Chunky kicks are joined by a warm pulsating synth alongside cool and crisp hats. Stark, harsh sounds litter the groove and bring a slice of tech into the vibe while some very cool spoken vocals provide a thought invoking narrative. The tracks layers continue to build bringing a real deep groove that will keep floors on the move no doubt.

Irish DJ and producer Dominic Smith steps up for remix duty and delivers a sublime deep house experience. Dublin resident Dominic has been a fan of dance music for a long time, in 2010 he got into House music and spent time dissecting the many sub-genres that exist. The results of this are his unique blend of Deep House and Tech House which has been snapped up by labels including Midnight Express Records, Vision Collective Recordings and Depaart to name just a few. In 2011 he gained attention from Dublin’s House music scene and soon found himself behind the decks at top venues across the city. On the remix the intro boasts a smooth and groovy vibe as well rounded kicks are joined by a surreal pad that rises beautifully into the sound. Cool FX on the vocal dominates a short break before we get into the main sound with sharp hats and a dancey rhythm. Sweeping synth shots litter the sound beautifully as this relentless groover powers on. A definite must have track in your box.

Croatian producer Kruno Kereta returns to Monog on remix duty and is fresh off the back of debut, Disquiet EP. On the intro we get thrust into a monstrous groove as punchy kicks are lined up against a harsh sinister bass. Vocal one shots crop up alongside a building percussion section and cool metallic sounding FX. The bass sits back perfectly and allows the percussive elements to build into a cool flowing rhythm as synth stabs filter through. A merciless trek into the deeper side of House that will not disappoint.

ALAN CASTRO – BATA EP (MONOG RECORDS)

Alan Castro is back at Monog with Bata EP. Alan’s last outing for us was on remix duty for Kruno Kereta’s Disquiet and before that it was a while since we seen him around these shores. Delighted to see another fine release from this guy and hope to see much more.

First up we have the title track Bata and right from the off we are lured into the deep grooves on offer with a superb kick and subtle percussion arrangement to the backdrop of a musical bass that locks you in for the ride. The grooves build slowly and tease us before we get to the break where some very smooth chords give you a little respite and then back into full swing. Cool vocal samples and FX splatter across the sound keeping your interest and adding many textures. A real nice and smooth cut that will not disappoint.

Dad0s sets off with a real deep groovy vibe as pulsing basses are joined by muted percussions that slowly weave a smooth rhythmic flow. Darker elements creep through in the shape of a mysterious echoed bell sound, which also adds a dramatic effect. Wonderfully positioned FX keep the ears trained as the groove unfolds taking us deeper. A strange yet very appealing sound that will draw the attention of many for sure.
