Bardo & Salazar’s latest EP reaches you at exactly the right time in the right place: warmth and summer dreams as far as you can hear. The first hike takes you fare above the valleys, high into the Swiss Alps, where legends and myths reside and magical Murgsee reflects the image of the gods as they listen to the two Zurich lads. Here, smitten by the magic, even the „Honey“ starts to „Hula“. Is it „Le Piff“ rising from the pipe and dancing in smoke arabesques across the mountain ridges? It doesn’t matter. And luckily the two have brought along their dear friend M.A., our newest family member… refining „Le Piff“ in his „Piff Paff Puff“ remix and transforming it, with „Spliff“, into a hypnotic after slam…
“I start my career in 1991, I was 18 years old in France , I was playing commercial music, funk, disco, 80’s, euro dance, rock, pop, groove & RnB, and then I discover electronic music, first was trance music and few years after it was house music and from house music came deephouse. It was a kind of revelation.
In 2001 I start composing. It took me years to create something good and nice.
I released few tracks in different labels but the consecration was in 2016 when I sign my first album «Time lapse» on my favorite label of all time: Plastic City!
And now this is my 3rd album and this one is much more better than the two others . It’s the album of maturity.
because I give a lot of myself on this album…”

Austrian Ken Hayakawa keeps up Stripped Down Records’ fine run of form with two new tracks that get remixed by John Tejada and Whitesquare. Superbly soothing opener ‘Sonic Wave’ is a brilliantly warm and spaced out deep house track that voyages into the cosmos. American tech house titan and long-time Kompakt associate John Tejada steps up to remix and takes things even deeper, with pulsing, sonar-like acid blips and icy hi hats all working on melting your mind as warm, gurgling bass drives things forwards. It is Italian producer and DFTD, 2020 Vision and Freerange house master Whitesquare who then remixes. He brings plenty of spine-tingling chords to his version, which is deep yet driven, with layer upon layer of rich sound all oozing real soul. Hayakawa then finishes things off in style with ‘Lost,’ a brilliantly atmospheric track that is cavernous, dubbed out and finished with exquisite ambient details that cannot help but calm you. This is a beautiful EP of deep, dynamic house music.
Claudio Ricci returns to his own label with a fresh new single that comes with superb remixes from Uner, Brigado Crew and Makossa & Megablast. Ricci is a veteran of the scene who was born in Vienna but is based in Ibiza. He has a weekly radio show on Ibiza Global Radio and takes cues from all styles of house music. He mixes organic sounds with proper melodies to enthralling effect and after EPs on the likes of MoBlack, Compost and Sudam, serves up his best work on his own ever more vital label. His original here is ‘Yano’, a perfectly paced track with loose, jumbled percussion. Dark, broad and sweeping chords bring tension and menace to the grooves, but a soulful vocal cry off in the distance means it also has real heart. A tribal track that is designed to unite the floor, it’s a perfect later summer anthem in the making. This excellent EP offers various house styles that will connect with a wide range of audiences.
Stripped Down Records continues with munimuni & Seelenwald and featuring stellar remixes from label founder Claudio Ricci as well as Sasse, Tiefschwarz and Kollektiv Turmstrasse. The excellent original is ‘Missing Link’, a strikingly emotional track with slow, lurching drums and a menacing bassline. These are five fantastically expressive and emotive tracks that bring a whole new world of feelings to the dance floor.
