EPISODE 189: The Bunglers – South Bronx (Sounds R Us Recordings)
The Bunglers, a Dutch electronic producer collaboration between M.R.T.N and Robin have been inspired by house grooves over almost 20 years now. Starting off by buying records from Dutch artists such as Angelo, Steve Rachmad, and Estroe, they developed a style best described by an explosive mix of house, tech house, tribal and techno sounds. A lott of new releases are planned for 2012 so watch out!
EPISODE 190: Thomas Stiller – Mountain Hut (AU Records)
No one better than Thomas Stiller to inaugurate our new EP structure.
Instead of one original and three remixes, we’re delivering two great original tracks from the same artist, and Beauty is the first word that comes to my mind while listening to both these deep house tracks…
The starter track, “You Know”, came from a collaboration between Stiller and Lukas Reither, who added an amazing “live feeling”, introducing recordings from crowds and pushing their vocal skills even further.
Next comes “Mountain Hut” filled with good vibes, this track has a very nicely produced vocal bits which give it an amazing “alive motion”.
Both base their percussion in classic house samples which gives to “Mountain Hut” EP the perfect mix between old and new school sound!

EPISODE 193: Aiemo – Forgotten Sun (Bonzai Elemental)
The 28-year-old Danish/Italian artist is born and raised in Copenhagen, Denmark. Inspired by the pulsating, urban and unique atmosphere of Copenhagen, David Nicosia Longhi has produced and published under various pseudonyms such as “Mazenga” and “Aiemo”. Ranging from deep, minimal psytrance to chillout and melodic lounge music.
David himself describes the importance of inspiration gathered from the fast paced citylife: “I love living in the city — there are endless inspirational options, ranging all the way from high-end fashion, cocktailbars, nightlife in general and even the modern oasis areas in Copenhagen, filled with peace and calm energy.I also like the anonymous feeling found in a big city. You could be surrounded by 100s of people and still feel like no one is seeing you. I generally get inspired from beautiful people around me and the desire to make and do something that touches the heart and thought of a human in combination with the electronically produced music. I want to keep living my daydream and my music reflects this.”
Practical Inspiration has been gathered from both the trance/balearic scene throughout the 90’s all the way to the downtempo and chilled lounge scene in modern time.
