VA Initializing vol III [SMDVA004]

The 'Initializing' compilation series became a good working platform for newcomer and already known producers to get spotlight on their productions. The third part will introduce more talents than ever, sliding on the genre scale from breaks, deep house through the one and only south american progressive house vibe to melodic techno and spiritual/tribal sounds.
You may not heard from TasZ, Daniel Camarillo, Artur Husid, Maentrao, Stereo Positive, Jor Messina, Greg Wonders, and SeamLess Beat, but they are all here because they have the same goal: present their visions about quality electronic music.
The "veterans" - if we can call them - who already have experienced quite a lot in the scene are QuiQui, Sterio & McClellan, Steve Sai, Flying Point, Loco-Volver and Dj Nightnoise on this compilation. - Greyloop

Josel - 3 Bridges EP incl. Ewan Rill, Jelly For The Babies, Monojoke [SMD060]

The 60th release on Suffused Music features the return of Josel to the label. The Greek born London based producer is making his fourth appearance on Suffused Music which follows his last single 'Making Time' from June of this year. A recent remix for Michael & Levan and Stiven Rivic and Phalguna Somraj 'Hyderabad' was a career highlight and his latest single entitled '3 Bridges' looks to be even stronger. Based around a shuffling, percussive groove Josel's sultry rhythms and delicate melodic sequences are a perfect blend of hypnotic excellence. It's a thought provoking journey that seems to effortlessly build over the course of its epic ten minute running time. It's one of the brightest spots in Josel's nearly 10 year production career and with remixes from: Ewan Rill, Jelly For The Babies and Monojoke it goes down as one of Suffused Music's finest releases of the year. - Release Promo

Munbraze - Decem Mensium EP incl. Esok, Jacob Singer, Following Light [SMD059]

Munbraze is an ambitious project which is focused on morphing different shades of Ambient & Dark Progressive to create an aural atmosphere of deep emotions. The man behind the alterego is no other than Daniel Muntean (from Cluj-Napoca, Romania) whose music absorbs influences from one of the best artists of the progressive house scene since the early 2000s, and his mission to keep that sound alive, despite it's constant downfall. This inetersting collide of sounds resulted a polished, atmospheric journey, shaken up by joyfull beats and effects. Daniel's latest work 'Decem Mensium' strikes in original 4/4 version and in downtempo milieu also. The 4/4 based original edit leaves no room for boredom, keep pushing the beats from the very first moment surrounded by silky textures and gorgeous strings. The downtempo edit put the focus on the floaty melodic section, with a calmed down background.
The package also contains additional remixes from Esok, Following Light and Jacob Singer.
Esok used some crafty breakbeats and humming baseline combining it with the original's dreamy soundprints.
Following Light's remix is building in a more experimental way, with sudden changes and dashing effects, bringing out the hidden energies from the main ingredients.
Jacob Singer leaving a remarkable touch on the track with sending it to the stratosphere with using even more delightful, small melodic details. - Greyloop

Andrez - In Your Afterglow EP incl. Advent's Rising, Alex Nemec & Nik Feral, Jaap Ligthart, Matter [SMD058]

Continuing their assault on the underground progressive house scene, with over half a century of high calibre releases, Suffused Music now turns to Bulgarian, Andrez, as he basks “In Your Afterglow” with four impressive remixes.

Born in the Sofia capital, an accomplished pianist and student of The State Academy of Music, began to establish himself as a dominant force in the city’s dance scene with appearances that would lead to inclusion to the InSound Promotions DJ agency. Production work quickly followed and almost 250 credits sitting proudly next to the Andrez name for such luminary imprints as Kansak, Enhanced and Balkan Connection South America. A deep bass vibe at its heart, the original mix pushes relentlessly forward with dynamic percussion arrangement and hypnotic, pulsating beat. Rise and falling with consummate ease, the track delivers with brooding intensity.

Former drum and bass star from the Greek capital, Athens based producer, Advent's Rising turned “360 degrees” to find a home within the progressive scene. A decade of experience on the DJ circuit within his homeland laid the foundations for a raft of releases since 2011’s debut on No Border Recordings. Over 20 production credits already for Suffused Music now sees Advent’s Rising take on Andrez with a slick reworking that combines the deep vibe of the original with additional urgency in the shape of subtle melodic variation that brings a new level of intrigue to “In Your Afterglow”.

Formerly half of the iconic pairing of Alex and Filip that dominated the underground scene with remixes of Dave Seaman, Trafik and Kassey Voorn, Alex Nemec needs little introduction to the musical cognoscenti. His work supported by the leading lights from Marco Bailey and John Digweed to TiĆ«sto and Mark Knight, the head of the successful Mirabilis records now teams up with UK producer, Nik Feral. From his home in Manchester, Feral’s growing reputation was quickly cemented after signing to UMEK’s 1605 - MUSIC THERAPY imprint in 2011 and supported by the likes of Pig&Dan and Laurent Garnier. Thus, a plethora of credits can be found under the Mancunian’s name with a quarter of century alongside Nemec. Reworking Andrez, the duo’s remix of “In Your Afterglow”, reveals a dark hypnotic rhythm that lurks menacingly with strong house beat and cavernous bass, resonant of the original. A cleverly worked riff plays on the omnipresent darkness creating a techno driven monster.

After years spent studying the techniques and inspired by the sounds of Sasha and Digweed, Dutch producer, Jaap Ligthart, saw a passion for electronic music translated into appearances on Dutch national radio and support for his work from some of the industry’s finest names. Dave Seaman, Hernan Cattaneo and Jody Wisternoff have all featured DJ Jaap Ligthart’s work in their sets for labels such as Black Hole Recordings and Manual Music. Taking driving rhythms as a starting point that propel his work forward, Ligthart’s remix of Andrez fills “In Your Afterglow” with a clever interpretation of the melodic themes present in the original mix to create a throbbing, filtered version to keep club floors full.

Final offering comes from Australian born producer, Matter. A student of the dance floors of Melbourne and London, time spent in his studio crafting “deep synth lines, driving bass and pulsating rhythms”, has been rewarded with recognition from such imprints as Stellar Fountain Records and Balkan Connection. Making his debut on Suffused Music, a deliciously bouncing bass line provides the foundation for intricate and immaculately programmed percussive rhythms to create a tightly locked groove. Echoes of the motif so prominent in the original are then treated to extra sheen as glitch and stutter provide added dimension to create an impressive rework of Andrez.

A quartet of remixes allied to Andrez’s original have seen a bright light shine “In Your Afterglow”. - James Warren
