The 5th release on Juicebox Music sees Argentina's new kid-on-the-block, Diego Azocar, making a debut on the label. Rising to fame with his hit single "Recall" in early 2013, Diego has managed to capture the attention of many DJs as well as ensure that his productions are well worth taking notice. He presents the label's first ever EP with two powerful tracks that are destined to cement his sound in the industry.
"Homenaje", the first of the two original productions, steers itself to a more dramatic atmosphere with it's airy melancholic pads & subtle hypnotic melodies, while steadily thumping the floors with a heavy groove. The lone remix comes from 'Alex Nemec & Nik Feral', a fairly new duo, but the two have been doing some stellar work separately. Alex, known best for his earlier work as 'Alex & Filip' as well as running his stellar label - Mirabilis, has had chart topping productions on well respected labels like Tronic, Flow Vinyl & Respekt amongst many others. Nik, on the other hand, has been churning out his tough productions on the MUM UK, Cubism as well the mighty 1605. Together, their remix of "Homenaje" takes the groovier approach with quick stabby chords, futuristic synth lines & rhythmical percussions while still capturing & complimenting the original's magical atmosphere.
"Technology", the second offering from Diego, quickly establishes its melodic characteristics from get-go. A simple plucked melody, joined with a growling bassline, spaced chords stabs, airy pads drive the track forward to meet a gorgeous arpeggiated riff during the second half of the track. We give the sole remix duties to a fellow Argentinian, 'Demian Moreno', that has been making quite a name for himself through his productions on Particles, Bermudos & Balkan Connection, leading him to be charted quite frequently on many top players in the industry. Demian provides his 'Space Dub' interpretation, completely taking the original to another territory, more specifically - astral. Dreamy lullaby-like arpeggiated melodies, soaring lead synth lines and clever percussive bits aided by dashes of reverb place itself as the backbone while the deep bass & heavy kick creates a dubby groove.
