It is that time of the year again, everyone is preparing for some sunshine and great new music and we are proud to present you the first part of this year's Artefact's WMC sampler, consisting of 6 tracks with styles ranging from classic house sound to the more subtile deep and tech sounds with some flavors of disco and funk in between as our mission statement says we believe in artistic freedom, never limited to one genre, always reflecting the current movements of the clubbing scene while praising the roots & origins of today's electronic music.
We have four producers included on the first part of the sampler that are brand new additions to our artists roster and two well established producers that have already released some material for our label, Angel Rize and X Twins.
To start things of we have “Rize Up” a t rack by Angel Rize and his original production style using a great groove along beautiful melodies, piano sounds and strings mixed with female vocal to deliver a great sounding classic house feel.
Next is Dean Mickoski, Macedonian born living in USA first time on Artefact, with his track “Dreamless” that has a great vibe, beautiful deep driving melody and piano sounds and all incorporated with sporadic male vocal to form a package that reminds us on some great times for the house music not so long ago.
Next is JayCeel, a Danish born producer with great potential that has brought to Artefact his disco flavored sound very simple but very powerful and ready for the dance floor with his track “Back To Disco”.
The fourth track on this sampler is a remix done by the bulgarian producer Artone who has few of his works on our label, and this time he has done his remix work on a track called “Waterfall” from the bulgarian band Nova Generacia, the track has his very well know signature of deep melodies and beautiful bass line mixed with the great female vocal to get a sound that reminds us of the sexy sounding productions of the very well know label Naked music.
Fifth track “It Never Stops” is from yet another first appearance on our label Soul Equation, a producer that is yet to show his talent, with his great production skills across few very different styles of music, but this time he is exploring the deep and funky sounds, with clever use of piano sounds as well as guitar sample and spiced with some strings all packaged with driving bass line.
Last but not least is our friend from Montenegro X Twins, with his “Innovators” one of his best works so far, very modern sound with unbelievably powerful bass line along with liquid melody that puts you in a great mood, deep sound filled with so much soul and at titude, a track for a dance floor as well as the comfort of your home.
