VA – Delta Night EP

VA - Delta Night EP

The guys at Pole Jam Vinyl have spent most of the last year involved in an undying quest to seek out new, exciting music. They would neither be stopped by the Russian tundras nor the deserts of Australia in their search. Funnily enough, it was actually down-under they discovered Sydney based duo “Falqo” with their brilliantly chilled and melodic number “Across The Sea”. Then, it really was ‘across the sea’ they went, all the way to the Ukraine, picking up Sasha Anastasov’s laid-back groovy smasher “Sea For Two”. Next up was a much shorter trip to Moscow to collect Gayana, a band very much on the rise whose “Since The Night” has been perfectly reinterpreted by Pole Jam’s very own St. Petersburg based all-stars KLar&PF. Pioneerball is the solo project of Tesla Boy’s lead guitarist who makes his second appearance on Pole Jam Vinyl. This time Pioneerball contributes the stunning opening track “Deltaplane”, a track influenced by obscure Russian cinematic soundtracks. It’s combined perfectly with a compelling disco groove, jazzy melodies and organic strings that will make your heart melt. Back home, with the search having come to a successful conclusion, the Pole Jam Vinyl boys celebrated with a pint – or two!

Toast Tapes Mix #037 // Dino Soccio

Toast Tapes Mix #037 // Dino Soccio

To introduce yourself, who are you and how would you describe your music?

I’m Dino Soccio, DJ/Producer from Los Angeles via Chicago, I play, produce, and write R&B/Soul dance music. Sometimes it ends up being house, sometimes it ends up being what they’re calling modern funk/boogie.

Which artists and styles inspired and influenced you the most?

My inspirations and influences change over time but most recently I’ve been really digging the dance music that was made in the first half of the 80’s and the artists that now are trying to capture that feeling today.  Italian stuff from that era like Raf, Jago, Clio, and Plustwo all resonate with me.  Had a bit of an infatuation with 80’s soul music that was played at Paradise Garage between ’81-85 the last year and discovered plenty of stuff I wasn’t as familiar with- Womack & Womack, T.C. Curtis, Lonnie Reaves, Spencer Jones, the lesser known BB&Q Band.  New music and reissues being put out on Star Creature, Cultures of Soul, PPU, BBE, Superior Elevation, and The Whole Truth get me excited.

What is one track that never gets old for you no matter how many times you hear it?

I’ll mention two here.  One is an all time classic Luther Vandross Never Too Much.  It always gives me chills playing that one in a set. Never get tired of it.  Another is Ten City’s All Loved Out (Love Serenade Mix).  Amazing playing on this one, lots of space, MUCHO feels going on there.  And here’s one more- Talk Talk- New Grass.  Definitely one of my top 10 tunes of all time, not a dance tune by any means but it resonates so much.

Tell us a bit about the Toast Tape you’ve put together.

This is just a sample of what I’ve been playing often in sets at my gigs in LA.  I play plenty of parties but I also do the 4 hour bar/club sets and I love doing it because it lets you stretch out and dig into some vibes.  Lots of countdowns in this one, wasn’t planned.  All vinyl, live mixing, no frills.  Hope you enjoy.

Ponty Mython – House for Sale EP

Ponty Mython - House for Sale EP

For his latest release, Dirt Crew and Quintessentials favorite Ponty Mython has linked up with Washington, DC-based imprint Better Listen for a five track package of globally inspired groovers.  The House for Sale EP maintains the sample-based production aesthetic of Better Listen’s debut record, and draws heavily from rare African funk and disco sources.  The Vilnius-based producer’s trademark eclecticism is injected throughout the record, with the A-side leaning more towards wonky, left-field house cuts and the flip hosting more disco-like arrangements.

Available now on vinyl:  http://www.juno.co.uk/products/ponty-mython-house-for-sale/635712-01/

Moony Me – Screwdriver

Moony Me - Screwdriver

Secret Crunch Records is a new imprint established last year by Vienna-based artists Roman Rauch and Moony Me.  Both producers have a similar musical ethos heavily influenced by hip-hop, soul, funk and disco and this is evident in the samples used throughout their productions.  Their first EP, “Bunch of Crunch” featured the pair’s collaboration on four tracks plus two additional remixes.  Their second, aptly titled “One Split Wonder” EP will feature three tracks from each producer divided onto the two sides of the record.  There is no A or B side but rather the RR (Roman Rauch) side and the MM (Moony Me) side.

The Bolting Bits premiere is focused on the first track on Moony Me’s side, “Screwdriver,”  A classic percussion loop and a straight house beat form the backbone of the groove as stabby sampled chords are introduced into the fray.  A no-frills, vintage sounding bass line comes in and works well in tandem with the other elements.  The real ear pleaser here is the early 1990’s sped up R&B vocal sample (we’ll let you dig it up yourself) which makes an early, teasing appearance before the song is stripped back.  As the track breaks down the chords and vocals are brought back in, with a build-up in the groove it creates a perfect hands in the air moment which should be able to pack any dancefloor.

As always, don’t forget to check out the other stellar cuts on the record. This one is expected to hit store shelves at the end of the month so get your pre-orders in now!

Carlo & Black Loops – Intermission EP

Carlo & Black Loops - Intermission EP

Carlo and Black Loops have joined forces together to release the “Intermission” EP. It’s full of catchy samples and funky soulful vibes. The release is out soon on Good Ratio Music but you can pre-order it!

smarturl.it/GRM009-Juno
smarturl.it/GRM009-Decks
smarturl.it/GRM009-Deejay.de
smarturl.it/GRM009-RedEye

An Italian-Spanish connection is always a good thing. The sort of sensual and Mediterranean emotions that Carlo and Black Loops can deliver, is a skill that has been taken far on this new EP.

The dichotomy can prove difficult to square sometimes, particularly when the guys have different paths in their sound. But the mix is rich here.

The Intermission EP is a packed full of soul samples, warm pads, and great solid beats wrapped up as a soulful declaration. Their massive love for music really shines through in this EP.
