What started as an invitation to artists premiered in our blog during 2016, end up being a gathering of impressive exclusive contributions coming from different corners of the planet, now divided in two volumes that we prepared during almost 1 year to share this gift with you now. The volumes are divided under the concepts of more bright music for volume 1 and obscure oriented material for volume 2. In the first part we open with jazzy R&B/Hip Hop from French duo Mokä Feat. R4chel, went to more nectarous futuristic landscapes with L4-E, the sunny acid house and brighten guitar riffs from DJ Béeso, Kharkov provides introspective deep house with classic dub breaks to start any good set, E-Jay & Over12 brings the best from Angola with soulful Afro House, Austin's Outlaw Producer place us again in the UK House path and adding classic dubstep/grime atmospheres, the Zagreb rhythm machine Don D Selectah plays with our head in an effusive footwork madness full of groove, Meanbucket boss DJ Tuco team up with Julia Joolz for club trax heat while Argentinian LNGCHPS flip our head by blending hypermelodic electronica, progressive metal and breakcore tips. To finish this combination of genres we let two very calm works coming from French producer Losange which will clean your mind with synthesized landscapes and ambient textures that opens space for incredible Ecuadorian organic/psychedelic healing Deep House from Quixosis. The second part opens with Erreur, the French beatmaker formally known as Mala Noche, now Noché, created a new moniker to explore more raw and dusty saturated frequencies and provocative lyrics, El Cucuy administer cosmic bashment riddim tied to baile funk with rave synths, fierce club fever and ballroom/vogue breaks from Swiss producer Aasco, Irish Flood collective co-founder Tentsion grant expansive reflections using cloudy club elements, Polish Juke community's Jakub Lemiszewski joins with IDM wise relentless glitch-drum craziness and a jaw-dropping wonky bassline, Angolan raw-Kuduro pioneer Nazar keeps showcasing his infectious cadence while DJ Satelite and Wilson Kentura drive the country's rhythms for a meeting with South Africa's Ancestral Soul style adding a psychedelic touch. Traveling now to Leeds with Hanover to encounter downtempo beats impregnated with powerful low frequencies that draw influences from Dub, Hip Hop and Drum and Bass. Keeping things gloomy with Tone Ra where ethereal structures from granular synthesis meet abstract movements of bass music production techniques, San Francisco's Only Now delivers his sonic architectures of mutant Kuduro, Gqom, and industrial sounds to create the perfect exit gate for the closing track coming from Portuguese audio manipulator Aires and his haunting Noise/Drone and ghostly chants.
