ROLAND’SOUSA – PICK N BITE EP (MONOG RECORDS)

Portuguese DJ and producer Roland’Sousa debuts on Monog with the wonderful Pick n Bite EP. Starting out in 2011 he started to really learn about producing music and he was part of the duo Jacknroll who had a string of top notch cuts on many different labels. In 2015 he decided to go solo and released on Household Digital. A very dedicated, committed artist, Roland’Sousa always puts his heart and soul into his music, definitely worth keeping an eye and ear on this guy.

The Original Mix intros with a superb deep tech house vibe filled with sharp metallic synths and a wonderful low end bass that delivers a deep warmth through the sound. Rhythmic percussions set the vibe alive with snappy claps and crisp stuttering hats. An array of synths come through and merge beautifully to the backdrop of a haunting pad that sits nicely in the background. A solid slice of tech here that will definitely turn a few heads.

Lisbon based Fernando Fragoso is here on remix duty and he churns out another of his tight cuts for our pleasure. Since 2000 has been developing his own techno and house styles and has been a regular feature on many labels including AU Records, Bonzai Basiks, Mint & Mustard, Howz Choons, Monog Records and Bonzai Progressive. We last got a taste for his style on Elements Records back in November 2013 on Alpha EP. Other releases followed on the likes of Complex Textures, City Life, Select Case and HEAVY to name just a few. The remix intros with a cool pacey vibe as those punchy kicks get to work alongside a shuffling, crisp percussion section. A long, lingering pad sits in the background as the drums tighten up into a smooth rhythmic flow. A deep, throbbing bass takes over with a little help from deep rooted synths that cast a nice techno vibe over the sound. The track hypnotises as it relentlessly powers on with a solid groove. An outstanding slice here that will be a welcome addition in any box.

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.
