Get into the party mode with Janis, Oliver Achatz, Homeboy and The Citizen's Band this December. We Make Music opens with JANIS´ 'Mind Made Up'; a reminder of the early Frankfurt House sound with a scent of the Soylent Green Remixes from the late 90ties. A distorted Techno siren that evolves over a tough and jacking 909 groove and finally leads into blissful deepness. Homeboy, who got some attention with his playful Hypercolour release, brings out the edgier and deeper sound in 'Sedam'; a track based on the elements of classic House, whilst breaking the borders through its arrangement and musical form. The jazzy synth riff that locks to a hypnotic 7/4 groove is what makes this track a quality gem. Previous support on Jimpsters Freerange podcast shall suffice as evidence. The flip-side starts with Oliver Achatz' track: 'It Won't Last'. Oli, being the sentimental one in this joint, proves that House music can work with a very sensual touch. The smooth and warm use of analogue synth lines combined with suggestive vocal samples, are played over a steadily drifting rhythm. This compound, of an almost meditative nature, will provide the perfect atmosphere for early morning club hours. The Citizen's Band, one half of Arto Mwambe, closes the compilation with a remix of Janis' "Mind Made Up". TCB shows that a track doesn't need much to get the crowd jumping and the party working, by returning the tune to its basic elements and making it a club banger for the "heads". 'We Make Music Vol. 1' is only the first out of the three upcoming releases set to shake your solid house ground. Selected Feedback from DJ's: Darshan Jesrani (Metro Area) "It's really good stuff - you have your own signature which I think is super important. There's so much un-original music out there that tries so hard, so it's nice to hear you guys doing your own thing." Jimpster "Killer stuff guys! I like! "Sedam" is definetly something I can feature in the Freerange Podcast" Axel Boman "I love this release!! So cool!!" Red D "The remix Chris Citizen did is a winner! I'll surely get the vinyl and play it for that one alone." Franklin De Costa "Great Ep!" Martyn original Mind Made Up is nice Lee Curtiss huge! Deetron Very cool fresh house jams! ...and many more!
