It takes just a few beats until the ritualistic vocal of Macaco lifts your spirit and the flute sample takes your fantasy on a weightless flight through the ethereal textures of delayed bliss. Within no time, you’re pretty damn high and you might well find yourself wondering how those relatively few beats per minute create such a compelling vortex of catchiness and drive. In comparison, the Mollono.Bass remix seems to be constructed without any handbrake whatsoever - once you connect to this tune it drags you straight into the nocturnal prime time of the dancefloor. Good things come in threes, and that’s why there’s the track Zeus. Its sleek groove plays around the casual sound of a guitar and gives rise to the idea of a road movie that involves colorful Hippies, the dusty scenery of a desert and some seriously wild things going on.

Dreamlike and longing, creating a cinematic atmosphere of departure: That's what the Karenz EP sounds like, rolling in as if it was a morning fog over the Bosporus. Just like his home Istanbul is a melting pot of cultures, the studio of Serkan Eles is an alchemical laboratory in the world of music. Using a slowly but powerfully heaving current of beats and bass to create momentum, he adds the sound of instruments and voices that transport a deep, oriental mindset into the consciousness of the listener. Also there's sounds that have probably been recorded on a spaceship orbiting planet Earth. In this way he creates a very subtle and delicate form of psychedelia – and that again is what Timboletti extracts for his remix, capturing it in the close-meshed net of his unmistakable groove.

Warm, casual, sexy, playful, bursting with positive vibes and joy of life: Leão reminds us of all those aspects that make House music such a wonderful affair. The production quality and sound pressure are up-to-date, the catchiness and functionality are timeless. From the minimalist, tool-like groove of Marius Hill to the big-room tribalistic escalations of Parabola the versatility of this EP feels as if the producer, who’s also known as Robot Needs Oil, keeps throwing big shovels full of smiles straight into our faces.

New Album Release - JPATTERSSON "Folks & Fanfare"
LISTEN & BUY: https://soundcloud.com/3000-grad/sets/jpattersson-folks-fanfare
It's been around three years since JPattersson opened up a whole new horizon of formerly unheard possibilities between the worlds of Dub and Techno. A lot has been happening ever since, and that’s very noticeable on his second album. It still has all the signature elements of JPattersson: There's his dreamy, virtuous trumpet play and his witty vocals, there's his dubby delays and heavyweight beats which often line up in a Downbeat rhythm. However, besides his fanfares there's now also many folks, many musical friends who contribute to the vibe of this album. There's a track with Berlin MC Longfingah, latin-flavoured rhythms from Polish Reggae and Dancehall producer Dreadsquad as well as a stylistically wide range of remixes that reflect the symbiotic cooperation and mutual inspiration of these last years.

Melodic pads float through the stereo panorama like the crystal clear water of a stream over round, moss-covered boulders. The subliminal undulations of the rhythm create an organic momentum reminiscent of the play of light and shadow on the ground under a summer forest canopy. Polish producer Raidho delivers two tracks that reveal the more levels and dimension the deeper you dance into their depths. Also there’s a remix by El Mundo who transforms the track ‘Dreamin’ into a powerful hypnosis trick that fits perfectly into the primetime of a dancefloor.

ACKER 057 | DIGITAL | FROM ROOTS WE RISE - REMIXED E.P.
EXCL. on BEATPORT: http://bit.ly/2poqPka
If summer was a piece of music, it probably would fall into the Dub and Reggae genre for many of us. But for just as many also into the realm of electronic dance music. Here all these different rhythms and vibes come together, as there are 3 remixes for last year’s Looney Roots album ‘From Roots We Rise’ rotating on Acker number 57. Mollono.Bass and Stephan Zovsky smoothly spread the Latino-flavoured vocal part of ‘La Vida’ between layers of warm subbass pressure and undulating ribbons of melody. Whereas Micronaut discovers an entirely new dimension in the cheerful rhythm of ‘Live It Up’ where.

ACKER 056 | DIGITAL | TRIBSEES E.P.
incl. Remixe by Mollono.Bass
If you listen to Armando Letico's productions on your headphones or your home stereo, they have a very mellow, even meditative vibe. That's because of the intricate, highly musical texture which he creates from rich overtone harmonies and ethereal sample collages recorded in places like the mystical Stone Town or the tropical Jada Temple. But if you crank up the volume, there's also a very compelling moment of danceability: The sleek flow of the bass and the pounding depth of the kick drum have a similar effect on your body and your mind like those first warm rays of sun seeping through a sudden gap in the clouds of a spring sky. Mollono.Bass keeps his remix rather laid-back and enigmatic, as well, creating the perfect tune for the early morning hours of a party.
