Loving this chap’s sound right now. 'Friends' is all about that low-slung groove and a super quirky feel. Check the EP, it’s a vibe.
"A bad tune by FD taken from his EP on Soul:R. This guy is on a roll. Serious."
The world's biggest and most prolific hard house label Tidy is back on fine form — having just delivered a weekender to over 2000 clubbers along with sister brand Ideal in April, it's time to get the label moving again. This new release from newcomer Damo Cassetti goes back to the '90s Tidy sound, to where it all began, with groovy percussion, rap vocals and garage-sounding funky basslines. Keep an eye on this label, as it brings back nostalgic sounds in 2014.
It’s difficult to believe this represents the debut release for Chilean Alejandro Arroyo, considering the confidence in which he’s crafted a peaktime progressive record destined for the record bag of stalwarts like Hernan Cattaneo. The bassline that powers ‘Open Cycle’ is deep, dark and menacing, though it carries enough ‘oomph’ to push it nearly into the realms of trance; and there’s a beautiful transition into the melodic elements in the peak of the record. A rip-roaring debut, it’s accompanied by an equally good remix from Andre Sobota.
