Hotmood – Disco Flava EP

Hotmood - Disco Flava EP

The Nómada label introduce a brand new EP by the Mexican producer Guillermo Santana a.k.a Hotmood. His Career as a producer began in 2005 and he’s released his music on important labels such as Star Creature, Tug Boat Edits, Editorial Records, SFSB, Whiskey Pickle and many others, where he has demonstrated his advance sampling sense on disco and jazz music from the 70’s.

Disco Flava is Hotmood’s debut EP on Nómada Records featuring 3 original tracks where we can perceive through techniques such as sampling and chopping; a strong influence for Latin Jazz, Disco and Funk music. It’s also accompanied by two exclusive remixes by the nomads Discoholycs and Felipe Gordon who add to the singles Psychomaniac and Disco Flava that missing House and Club ingredient.

All original tracks are produced and mixed by Hotmood. All tracks mastered by Lucien Magual. The bassline on Psychomaniac (Discohoycs Remix) was played and recorded by Jonahlo.

Out August 15th exclusively on Traxsource.

Fouk || Four Heads

Fouk || Four Heads

This exclusive mix tape achieves a lot in the space of an hour; it’s a whistle stop tour encompassing jazz flute, disco stabs, ending in a more typical Fouk-esque, funk laden house groove. The rhubarb and custard disparate styles are blended together masterfully and succinctly; meaning this cerebral mix not only keeps you guessing but is fabulously re-playable. Keep it close, it’s a certified pumper.

Chaos In The CBD – Accidental Meetings EP

Chaos In The CBD - Accidental Meetings EP

Chaos In The CBD’s Ben & Louis Helliker-Hales team up with long-time friend and collaborator Jon Sable to present their new imprint ‘In Dust We Trust.’

In Dust We Trust is an ode to a collection of friends who share a certain understanding, who live by a love and respect for the people around them. That friend who saves that last puff for you, that friend who will share their drink with you when you can’t afford your own, that friend who will learn how to drive a car on the spot because you’re too drunk to make it home.

Kicking things off with a release from Chaos In The CBD, ‘Accidental Meetings’ is a record that celebrates this way of living. The four cuts effortlessly move you through a journey of delicate textures and atmospheres. It begins with the late night basement sounds of the title track, then sends you through the spacious and meditative ‘North Pole Cafe.’ The wild rhythms of ‘United Identities’ hypnotise you, until you find yourself spat out by the energetic grooves of ‘Distorted Fields.’

Play it in the club, play it in the hotbox, or play it for your mum, this record is filled with soulful, rhythmically complex, melancholic music that is unmistakably dusty.
