As the summer arrived for the last few weeks we saw our office overwhelmed by great music from our artists, so we decided to put out a proper summer release for those long hot and sweaty nights that are yet to come.
After many hours of listening and deliberation we have chosen the nine tracks that are doing the thing for us.
We start with a beautiful deep and sexy track called Into The Deep from one of the most prolific producers we have on our roster, Pavle Vasiljevic, who is continuing to drive us crazy with his deep and funky sounding chords with always just enough deep bass line to give that special drive and feel.
Next is one of the youngest producers here in Skopje, Alek Soltirov, he got our attention the moment he showed us his feel for the deep jacking house, the ideas and the production from this young fellow sound so serious and with so much background like he has been in this scene for years. Great deep chords sexy female vocals and a rolling beats for a perfect sound in his For The People track.
Next is Dejan Dex with his Jacking track, the Macedonian producer that has so many releases under his belt and always striving for that new and modern sound but still keeping the roots involved, very good production skills and great interpretation of the deep sound in its original format.
Kit Mason with his The Funk Banner shows his ability to put a great deep vibe with a subtile use of a known sample and classic house beat and the result is a floor burner.
The next track is signed by the local producer Oliver Petkovski, with many releases in the last few years, and with his Kopernikova single shows his house side in its purest form. Great beat, powerful bass line, rolling chords for a classic house sound.
Dienamic Feeling is the next track courtesy of ME.N.U. macedonian producer based in Amsterdam, and as the title suggests the sound and the drive are so dynamic and powerful, with a claver use of male vocals to achieve that underground feel, tech house sound with a twist, beautiful and rolling bass line that puts you in a dancing mood every time.
Another Macedonian producer with a very bright future ahead of him, Borce Panov comes with his Alja Balja, a track name that will be very hard to pronounce for all of you English speaking, but very easy for all of you out there who want to move the dance floor and put it a notch closer to the peak , a tech drive with a powerful bass line driven by a great beat and mixed with some interesting vocals.
The man that needs no introduction Kerkez, one of the best producers that has come out of Macedonia, with many releases on great labels, digital and vinyl, decided to treat us with his Sixty Nine And Two a distinct techno sound, combined with great chords and melody reinforced with his perfect bass line.
Another new signing is a producer that comes from Ukraine, Vigil Coma, and with his Nu Direction track shows his ability to produce great sounding house by using melodic chords and textures mixed with a great beat, a bit of old school sound but still so modern.
9 tracks by 9 artists for those sweaty dancefloors, the summer has arrived.
