One of favorite producers of the year, responsible for ‘Movement of Whale’ on Diynamic, is back with new music, this time on Get Physical. We knew from our interview that there would be more music forthcoming, and we are pleased to be treated with this original. As a refresher, SevenDoors was a huge name this summer, with his track ‘Movement of Whale’ and the followup release of ‘Otec‘ on exploited back in late October.
‘Albeiro’ is somewhere in between what we’ve come to expect. It’s a little less emotional but not too relaxed, with a heavy emphasis on synths and stabs. The track will fit nicely in the more driven and focused parts of our sets.
We first discovered the Danish trio WhoMadeWho when Maceo Plex put out his remix of their track ‘Heads Above’ last summer. More recently, the group released their six track ‘Ember’ EP in May of this year, which made waves in the scene. Now, remixes are slowly trickling out on Get Physical. Up for this package for ‘There’s a Way’ are three strong contenders offered by andhim, newcomers T.M.A., and Jazzuelle.
Up first is the offering from German duo andhim. Their take chops up the impressive vocal with a clap like percussion and rhythm. The track is perfect for a midday outdoor set and unsurprisingly fills the whole area.
No stranger to Get Physical, South African producer Jazzuelle was a great choice for remixer. Jazzuelle maintains the beauty of the nearly untouched vocal with a groove focused bassline. This is clearly the danciest one out of the package.
Closing things out is something fresh and lively from the Berlin based trio T.M.A. They inject a sound with impressive live instrumentation into the track. Well produced, their version is something different and we are curious to hear what you think.
‘There’s A Way’ remixes are out NOW on Get Physical!
A remix with the word “groove” in it? Could it get any better? German duo andhim return to M.A.N.D.Y and Booka Shade’s acclaimed label Get Physical for their next release, a three track remix EP of their successful single ‘Hausch.’ Quietly introduced last year, ‘Hausch’ was the B-side to a two track EP ‘The Wizard of Us,’ also on Get Physical. ‘Hausch’ really blew that EP out of the water, and it is fitting that its summery vibes get an injection of new flavor just as WMC is wrapping up. The duo has arranged for Cologne producer Dürerstuben, Danish legend Kölsch, and US-based techno-favorite George Morel to each provider their own take of the track. It should come as no surprise that our favorite is George Morel’s offering, his self-titled ‘Groove Mix.’ WARNING: Before listening, note that this track will not help you get out of bed; instead you’ll end up closing your eyes and soaking it in. The ‘Groove Mix’ of ‘Hausch’ is just that – a rework of the original infused with a deep, light-percussion laced groove while the lyrics are perfectly cut up to compliment the stabs and pads.
Happy Sunday everyone. Number 30 of our Sunday Slowdown posts features a super smooth production courtesy of Paolo Rocco and the vocal talents of Wayne Tennant. Paolo Rocco has been incredibly busy, with fresh releases on Defected’s equivalent Miami 2014 sampler EP and his track ‘People Say’ was remixed by Saved Records label boss Nic Fanculli for Saved’s epic 100th EP. Upon first listen of the track, you’ll immediately recognize Wayne Tennant’s vocals, familiar to those who checked out last week’s Sunday Slowdown from Michael Gracioppo, Tale of Us, and Vaal. ‘Caution You’ features faint off-beat hi-hats, a great groovin’ bassline, and fitting, emotional vocals. Be sure to pay attention to the track as its storytelling ability is prime.
Out now on EP #1 of Get Physical’s Get Physical In Miami.
We first caught onto UK-based Tom Budden with his track ‘Flying Feather‘ off of Get Physical’s Full Body Workout Volume 12. With past releases on Gruuv, Culprit, ALiVE, and Pets Recordings under his belt, ‘Amber’ sees Tom Budden returning to his own label of ALiVE. The three track EP includes ‘Amber,’ ‘Lurking,’ and ‘Slice.’ While only two previews are on Soundcloud at the moment, we are really impressed with this offering. ‘Lurking’ features a driving bassline with groovy percussion and a pristine synth, making this our favorite from the EP. The title track, ‘Amber,’ highlights bouncy, breakbeat vibes with nice piano stabs. Rounding things off, ‘Slice’ is a darker production with pure grooves and surprising dynamism complimented by a fitting vocal sample. While you wait for this release, be sure to check out Tom Budden’s fantastic guest mix on Get Physical Radio.
Get Physical, the label headed by M.A.N.D.Y and Booka Shade, is known for its eclectic compilation album, and today sees Tracks Vol. 5 getting a full release. Past favorites on compilation albums include Tom Budden’s ‘Flying Feather‘ and ACUMEN’s ‘Copie Conforme.’ In addition to Denite’s stunner ‘Ochentayocho,’ the compilation also includes a new track from mysterious producer Ikaro. Little is know about this producer, and a sparse social media presence only includes one track on Soundcloud in addition to ‘Skyfall.’ Ikaro’s debut on Get Physical is a deep, groove heavy track infused with classic piano chordplay and a pristine vocal. Keep an eye on this one, and we’ll update you as soon as we know more!
Get Physical, the label headed by M.A.N.D.Y and Booka Shade, is known for its eclectic compilation album, and today sees Tracks Vol. 5 getting a full release. Past favorites on compilation albums include Tom Budden’s ‘Flying Feather‘ and ACUMEN’s ‘Copie Conforme.’ Volume 5 features a fantastic production from Spanish artist AFFKT. With past songs released on OFF, Bedrock, Noir Music, and Suara, it is no surprise that ‘Lonely’ marks AFFKT’s debut to Get Physical. ‘Lonely’ is a fine example of a chugging bassline, complementary percussion, and prime use of vocal loops. Make sure to check out AFFKT’s recent RA chart in support of the track.
