Deep, deep, deep… There’s no more words to describe this release, it’s classy, it’s tasty and it’s ultra sweet. The original track was made by Haustuff & Leesboon with the colaboration of Jonny Keys. The Duo behind the concept is constituited by one Portuguese and one Brazillian and this convergence result in a catchy tech-house track which brings the groovy side of its tech character without losing any of its deep soul.
Ricardo Albuquerque is one of the guest remixers. Maybe some people dont know but Ricardo is one of the Warung Beach Club guys. One of the most famous clubs in the world and probably the most famous in Brazil these days. Aside of this references, Ricardo justifies all of this hype with an addictive deep track. You will notice the leads, the groove made by the drums, but what will get you hooked on it is the outstanding bassline phrase. We simply love it!
B. King, it’s not another guy to fill the package. Yes its true the work of the last contender on this pack its tough. But this guy shows from what matter is made. Bassline apart, which is lovely, the sinthesized glided strings are something else, believe us, you will want to listen this in repeat.
Mr Drew is back, this time with a funky house beast tempered with a fat booty bass and wicked vocals. This one is on Drew’s own style, funky all the way.
In charge of the remix is Luís Bravo who does an excelent approach to “The Sound Of DISKO” vibes mixing some hot chords with a proper 90’s drumline. There’s not much left to say that you can’t experience better listening!
After the end of the Black Catalog we’re back again with another deep journey.
Martusciello aka Federico Martusciello is the man. It starts with Lunatic, deep and frugal with a super dark chord screaming all the time just begging to breathe over the mix.
“Hated For Who I am, Loved For Who I’m Not” is the B-side of this story, way deeper and relaxed, with a lot of chords rolling and swinging aside with the ethnical percussion.
It’s a sweet must have.
To commemorate the 10th and last release from the “Black Catalog”, we deliver a proper club house remix pack from the previous “Free EP” by Simone Girau and Dario Girau. The head of this honor is the label head manager, “Fragoso”.
About the release itself, in the ‘Lisbon’ Main Remix, Fragoso brings us a funky but dark well defined mass of groove filled with FM LFO’ed synths all around, that in conjunction with the vocal section and a typical 90’s house style lead turn what is already an outraged groove into a groundbreaking twisted travel.
To fill the pack “Fragoso” made the ‘Lisbon’ Deep Remix which drives all the concept into a deep journey. As soon you start listening it, you will realize that is all about dig, dig, dig! Its mental without losing any funky and twisted character. If you seek for a proper mind breaking experience, this is what you need!
After “Get Up!” Mr. Drew is back with “Hot Jazz”, a joint venture between him and a newcomer, one half of the portuguese duo Lazer Mike and an extremely talented keyboarder, Charles Lazer.
Hot Jazz is a piece of true House Music with a foot in the balearic house with some fine british acid house flavour, driven through juicy chords and a groovy round bassline, which is his trademark.
The Original Mix aims to keep your sight into the core of the composition, while the “Renegade Master Version” grabs the roots of Wild Child vocal, turning what is already awesome into something outrageously tasty!
Soul Searching is what this single is all about. The art of seeking for the right party igniters.
Name 001 is the unknown face of Miguel Parreira, Mr. F or, most commonly known as, SGMNT (Segment), his technoish side.
Name 001, brings his clustered waves into our dimension, filled with strange pads, sines and church textured stabs, he delivers us a ultra-twisted theme that shows how Progressive and Techno can be merged into one single composition, although there’s always the constant presence of the Acid touch in it as well as the epic speech about science vs religion. Unavoidable!
Fragoso, label head manager and a regular on AU Records, brings his interpretation about how it should be the “Soul Searching” act. As usual, evolving, epic and very very subtle, Fragoso drives us through an authentic sonic epiphany. It’s the subtleness taken to the last stage. A very very profound journey!
Missing this, is missing history

Inês Duarte is not just another dj, she has created a certain and stable foundation that can be heard and felt in any one of her sets to date. What Inês lacks in years, she makes up for in the extensive knowledge she has acquired in her younger years, with time spent listening to some of the most talented musicians in the genre who have gone on to be some of the most influential. Her musical selection pushes through boundaries and to simply describe it as “premium”, a word commonly thrown around in the industry, sounds depreciative to anyone who knows and follows her music. Inês mainly spins House music but her foot in Techno cannot be ignored, an undeniable distinction.
This is what Club Cult has always strived for; our vision is to provide contemporary electronic music that is ruled by quality and since its inception we have always tried to not follow any trends but to forge our own path creatively.
This time we’ve decided to reignite and reintroduce some classic 90’s flavour to the scene with a joint venture from Mr Drew and Fragoso, who together have cooked up ‘Get Funky EP'; a zesty two track EP, featuring reworks of the Angel Moraes house classic, ‘Turn it Up’.
Beginning with Mr Drew’s interpretation on this revival, ‘Get Up’ mixes textured nu school beats with an old school bassline, culminating as the main groove and delivering a melodic pad at the break – delicious. Although, it is the vocals which really bring the theme to focus, echoing across the track and pushing through the overall floating, bassy mood – bringing back the old time vibes.
Fragoso’s addition to this release, ‘Funk Acido’, incorporates the vocals of ‘Turn it Up’ into an entirely new body. The bassline sees in this track with a smooth and steady swing. As the theme increasingly sets in, it seems to climb further towards a heating groove, only heightened by the certain rush supplied by the response of the drums and resulting in the final monster which will have you moving to outrageous effect by its completion.
This EP can be summarised in as few words as, two bombs just begging for flame.

Swing City, the name itself says everything about them. Swing, groove and extra depth in the way they reach your soul! Swinging since 2011 as a collective Ricardo Oliveira and his brother Fabio Oliveira, merged their expertise, Ricardo as a dj and Fabio as a producer, resulting in a fusion between real-time performance and creation, the definition for it is “Jamming in the Floor”.
There’s not much to be said that can’t be listen. Enjoy it!
