We Welcome Ego Traxx Records & I Love Deep Records from Hungary to our Digital Distribution Service.Budai and Vic met in 2000 and decided to produce tracks together and create an independent label to release them by themselves. They used to make groovy tracks that contain the funk and a positive vibe, happiness, but still built on a strong rhythm. In the end of 2001, they founded Egoist Records (now Egotraxx Records) with ex-Sonic Age member Vic. The label started with a massive groundbreaking tribal-tech release called ‘Ma Macoosa’ EP, and since then they keep this level as well. The label which is in its fourth year has got many positive feedback since its start. After the 12th vinyl and many international releases, the tracks of EGO artists appear more frequently in big names’ charts and mixes. The labelsound is a solid fusion between tribalistic looptechno and groovy mediterranean sounds, but all of this with the characteristic Ego-flavour. Egotraxx is focusing on the soulful side of techno and tech-house. Maybe that is the reason that the label got lots of playtime from Djs like Carl Cox, Umek, Dj Preach, or Valentino Kanzyani. Ego Traxx Records is now over of its 13th release with a massive Markantonio remix. Ego Traxx works with names like DJ Preach, Marko Nastic, Alexander Koning, Marcelinho CIC, Daniel D and so on…In the spring of 2005 Egotraxx founded it’s new sublabel: I Love Deep Record. This label also has got many positive feedback since its start. After the first release the tracks of ILD artists appear more frequently in respected names’ charts and mixes. I Love Deep is focusing on the deeper but very danceable side of house music. The label runs its own clubnight, the only deep house event in Budapest, Hungary. I Love Deep just won the „Clubnight Of The Year” award on the annual Partycom.hu E-Vote 2005 Awards.

Alphawezen – Gun Song (El Niño Weekend Version)

Under their nom de guerre “Alphawezen”, Ernst Wawra and his singing comrades-in-arms Asu, Verena, Simone and Fred have already twice demonstrated their expertise in the weird and wonderful world of electro-apparatus. Their first two sound carriers, “L’Après-Midi d’un Microphone” and “En Passant”, floated with somnambulistic lightness and poise over the fertile no-man’s land between the genres of trip-hop, house and electropop, hovering over the fine line between art and kitsch. On the current third album Alphawezen takes us through the vast realm between experimentation and calculated effects, bringing us full circle to the first album. Since the days of the legendary band Kraftwerk, many have shown that machines can produce more than just rhythmically repetitive booming and thumping. But it wasn’t till Alphawezen’s musical experiments that we learned that polyphonically intertwined enunciations of their vitality have the melodic quality and complexity of 19th-century Italian arias. Naturally, the next question is what skills this lovable species needs to learn now to attain at long last the coveted status of fully-fledged living beings. The “Gun Song (El Niño Weekend Version) is a special version of this brilliant new song. The original version appears on the third album “Comme Vous Voulez” from Alphawezen.

El Farouki – Take My Hand (mp3 EP)

El Farouki started producing electronic dance music after seven years of violin and classical music. Mybe this is the reason why he is expressing more than you expect when hearing the first sounds. The native-born Moroccan knows very well handling rhythms and grooves and sends us on a trip through a world full of dance and pleasant moments. Sometimes very minimal and warm, sometimes rhythmically angry and chasing, his works show the different facings of his skills. His music releases suit very well for the floor but also for the couch at home, never-ending energy. It is perfect to stay awake, to forget everything for some minutes and leave it. After his debut release “Mouth Of groove” on Plastic City in spring 2007 and his exclusive contributions to the current label compilations, El Farouki now release his second EP called “Take My Hand” on Plastic City. This release is again perfect to stay awake, to forget everything for some minutes and leave it. While dancing please close your eyes, the effect is long-lasting…
