DAVIDE MARCHESIELLO – LAS LARVAS – (EYEPATCH RECORDINGS)

 

[soundcloud id='57966441']

 

Italian producer Davide Marchesiello gives us a 2 track tech house beauty.

Davide grew up following DJ’s such as Danny Tenaglia, Roger Sanchez and Francois K. Today he is influenced by Ricardo Villalobos, Uner, Luciano and Ted Patterson.

Las Larvas is a tribal fuelled tech joint, very heavy on the percussion and some great FX that come sweeping by, deep bassline and a whispered vocal tie this track up beautifully.

Chill And Sex is a more funky affair with very subtle synths and swaying pads, this tune builds up to a mighty groove and stays there with little mini breaks to catch your breath and then straight back into it, great stuff.

SA.DU – ESPANA (EYEPATCH RECORDINGS)

 

[soundcloud id='56277355']

 

Returning to Eyepatch for another round of minimal tech house is Thanos Dimitriou aka Sa.Du.

Thanos became interested in the techno and trance sound during his teenage years growing up in Athens, Greece. He started to DJ in 1994 on local radio stations and along with some friends they promoted parties and booked the best Greece had to offer. In 2008 Thanos began a career in music production and went on to release through Bonzai Limited, Bonzai Basiks, Eyepatch Recordings and many more labels.

Now concentrating on a techno orientated sound we get his latest work entitled Espana along with two other tracks.

The title track Espana is a fun ride along the tech expressway. Starting off with a strong bassline and cool groove on the percussion the tune develops into an energetic dance floor friendly monster. Spanish influences all over the sound with an ever familiar guitar and trumpets, lots of great fx and a cool vocal sample.

Oneiro builds and builds to awesome tech heights, starting off with a cool rhythm and great basses, quite sublime in places with well structured melody.

Rich fits into the darker side of techno, retro sounds on the synth with awesome vocal samples, this one will gain a lot of attention for sure.

Always on the up Sa.Du will continue to deliver quality beats.

ACCATONE – BRING (EYEPATCH RECORDINGS) – PROMO SUPPORT

 

Eyepatch continues to go from strength to strength, we’ve been able to capture another fine example of deep house pleasure.

Accatone is the alias of José Reis. He grew up listening to Detroit techno, Chicago house, deep, dub techno and later on to all kinds of world music. With a debut album gaining a lot of support from around the world Jose now gives us a sublime two tracker.

Bring starts off on a kind of dub trip breaking down into a simple yet effective piano chord structure with a cool vocal sample, tight bassline and great percussions tie this whole track together beautifully.

Everything is stripped back to bare minimal sounds with a great hypnotic bass and a raspy distorted vocal on a huge breakdown, tight production which shows real professionalism in music.

Early support and feedback comes from the likes of Sander Kleinenberg, Claude Von Stroke, Gabriel Ananda, Richie Hawtin, Nick & Danny Chatelain, Ken Liu, Merlyn Martin (Subdivisions Global Radio Show), Koma (Jacbri Radio Show/Proton Radio), Deep South Audio (Volcano Radio, Pulzar FM), Andreas Akratos (Re-Think Radio, Night Series), Riyaz Khan (Diversions Radio Toronto), Mikey Breaky (Flirt 101.3FM, Galway) and many more…

WONJI – FROM MY SOUL EP (EYEPATCH RECORDINGS)

 

[soundcloud id='55591847']

 

Born in Brooklyn, New York, Juan Gonzalez learned many instruments since high school. He later discovered turntables and Hip Hop, from here Latin, Disco and R&B would influence Juan and these musical styles would lead to House music with lots of experimenting along the way.

With an ever evolving sound and after two previous successful releases and remixes on Eyepatch Recordings Wonji gives us From My Soul EP.

A sublime two track journey through house music. Smooth swirling synths and organs with a deep soulful voice over a classic bassline and drum arrangement make In My Soul a wonderful addition to any box.

Only My Love has a lot going on, lots of different synth styles including a cool retro vibe and a kick drum that stands out very well, theres also a slightly jazzy undertone here with smooth trumpet sounds.

Another release from Wonji that gives us an insight into the evolution of his sound.

DIEGO ALVEZ – FRGT.10 (EYEPATCH RECORDINGS)

 

[soundcloud id='54032043']

 

Deep house vibes on the ever expanding Eyepatch imprint from Diego Alvez.

This Portuguese producer and remixer has wide ranging musical tastes including Classical, dark tech house, minimal and ambient. With a slew of remixes under his belt and learning piano from an early age Diego is fro sure one to watch. Pulling those tastes together we get intimate melodic deep grooves and Frgt.10 is no exception.

The original mix is a melancholic dark journey through house with eerie pianos and an awesome heavy bass, sweeping FX over some nice percussion works very well on this.
Solunamanalia’s West End Deep Touch stays true to the original and utilises those brilliant sounds well. Not as dark as the original but still a pumping groove throughout. Very cool added layers bring this to life with a tribal feel, very well constructed.

[soundcloud id='53143469']

 

Dimitry Liss produces quality deep house and tech vibes out of Dubai in the UAE. Dimitry is no stranger to Eyepatch having released the Envy EP through collaborations with other artists.

Interstellar Frankie delves deep into house with an array of musical sounds and some classy vocal samples, this track focuses on organ type sounds, brilliant bassline and the vocals really add a cool groove, ass shaking stuff.

All That Jazz has a darker vibe with mysterious sounding synth work, tight production again from Dimitry and awesome vocal structures will make this a tune to be played out a lot.

ACCATONE:

Accatone is the alias of José Reis. Born in 7 July 1980, he went through his teens listening to Detroit techno and Chicago house music, deep and dub techno and later on to all kind of world, funk and folk, dub and reggae, soul and all kinds of music really.

He pursuits for different and more accurate deep and groovy house tunes working as a DJ, Producer/Remixer and sound recordist and closely involved with Piston Recordings ran by his long time friend Rogério Martins.

DIMITRY LISS:

From an early age Dimitry had an aptitude for music. Being a piano student he attended various local competitions in his native town, making sure he practiced long hours before each one at home. When he realized being a professional piano player wasn’t his calling, he walked away with considerable knowledge and experience in music and its theory. He tried a lot of musical instruments and was about to settle for rhythm guitar when his thirst for electronic dance music started to develop.

Somewhere deep in the heart of Russia, a lot of influence arose from the cold and moody surroundings he was subjected to in the urban city. He dived deeper into the unknown world of synthesis and sampling. This is where it all started, sleepless nights and lone days with books and computer screens. Producing, practicing and perfecting his craft.

Year 2002 brought dramatic changes to his rather rehearsed and already aggravating routine, when he moved to Dubai. Experience in a new city added to his aural perception. He grew as a music producer gaining knowledge and skill in this fresh and exciting multi-cultural environment where music, culture and technology coincide hand in hand. While on the path to musical growth, Dimitry stumbled upon a few others that shared his vision for a good groove. Two of these key influences are Costas Papa and Abood Nasrawi. Together they try to explore and push creative boundaries.

Dimitry Liss supports electronic music to this day, he is heavily involved with Dimitry Liss and Costas Papa duo project and his own work as a producer and a DJ, crafting brand new tech, deep and minimal house tracks for your enjoyment.

JIMMY GALLE:

Jimmy is born on August 17th in Luik aka Liege in Belgium. As his parents were boatmen he had to attend boarding school from the age of 6 onwards. To overcome the loneliness of boarding school his parents bought him a walkman. That event literally plugged him in in music!

He listened a lot to music via tapes and the radio and developed a health preference house music.
After a long period of nagging and begging his parents he finally got the best birthday present ever on his 15th birthday: a music mixer and double deck cd player. Every free second of his time went into his devotion to music.

2 years later Jimmy got the chance to prove himself at a cool club in Antwerp: Het Eilandje.Success was immediate: he got his first residency!

Not long before he got interested in making his own music. With his savings Jimmy bought his first PC with a sound card and a Korg keyboard. After a few years he discovered his own sound and at the beginning of 2004 he released his first record: Jim-Y – Digital Trumpets. In the meantime he was working on a project with his best friend Ruly. Jimmy had finished a new demo for which he had the perfect voice in mind and boldly he sent it over under the project name R & Y to his favorite vocalist and singer. And guess what! Only 2 weeks later he got contacted by Jan Johnston. Jan had already written the lyrics and called for a date to do the recordings for this song, that is how R&Y Meets Jan Johnston – Its Cold Outside was born. This single was released in 2007 with remixes from Filterheadz and Sied van Riel.

In 2008 Morning On The Terrace got released on the label Bonzai Fiesta. At the end of 2008, Ruly decided to stop with the project, and that was when Jim-Y changed into Jimmy Galle. Jimmys sound was different as a solo dj/producer. After this period different productions and remixes appeared on different labels.

Jimmy has plaid and is still playing in many known Clubs and on many events such as: Noxx, La Rocca, Cafe D’ Anvers, Industria, Chakra Party, The Factory, Lazurra, Petrol, De Rodenburg (NL), TranccSession, Playboy Deluxe, De Cinema, Space, Wicked, BBC, De Kaai, Red & Blue, Turbulance…
