One of the most successful Dj’s and producers of the nineties presents his new album on Harthouse: Miro Pajic. As ‘Miro’ he played at the biggest international raves, under aliases like ‘Hypnotizer’ he characterized rave and hardcore and released on labels like Kiddaz.FM, ToraToraTora, Tic Tac Toe, Proper N.Y.C., Things To Come and his own imprint Laserzlut, of course. With his new album he is blowing up the boundaries of minimal techno. The architecture of his ten tracks is as manyfold as the philosophic interpretations of room and time in general like the physicists are speculating about a multiverse. Every sample, every little designed sound is at its place and could never be somewhere else. Thus Miro Pajic creates moods between reading romantic poems, floating in weightnessless and exploring new worlds of perception. Thus the intro of the first track ‘(Welcome) Bubblehead’ reminds to the first scene of the movie ‘Alien’ where a nearly poetic and romantic music supports the pictures of the awakening crew. Then he sets a highlight with the very sexy ‘Do It’ (feat. Joody). Concentrating on beats basses and science fiction sounds he gives the vocals enough room to unfold their atmospheric effects. Miro Pajic has the ability to give his tracks a certain tightness by giving them a little kick in the ass at the right moments. So the synth line in ‘Evacuate The Equator’, the dry beats in ‘Collide’, the melody in ‘Octopusm’ or the razorsharp percussions in ‘Dusty Star’ are surprising elements. Furthermore Miro gives his tracks a deepness that seems to be bottomles. This album really is a little treasure of minmal techno music where you will explore new things everytime you listen to it.Free Download: Do It (Alt Mix)
In the eighties DJ Yellow pushed forward French hip hop and he also had big influence on what French house music is today. Currently, Alain Ho aka DJ Yellow is one of the electronic music artists who established himself as one of the forward thinking artists in general. With his label Yellow Productions (founded 1993 with his mate Bob Sinclar) he released artists like Salome De Bahia, Dimitri From Paris, Joe Clausell, Bang Bang and Kid Loco. With his second imprint Poussez Music (founded in 2003) he created an outlet for his own sounds. Thus here he started his projects Alienation, Intermission and Paule with which he experimented on different fields of electronic music. On the new album DJ Yellow fuses characteristics of deep, funky and tech-house by using tender basses and well dosed percussion lines, paired with some real e-bass parts one feels remembered to the album “Paradise” from Bob Sinclar (which Alain assisted to). But these little elements can only be seen as little quotes to the roots. All in all the album, which was produced together with Portuguese producer Tiago Fragateiro (aka Hi-Tech²), provides a clever mixture of deep and funkyness. Using dark and promising spoken words from time to time the record takes a mystic narrative mindset at the very beginning. What follows is an emulsion of warm arrangements with a strong and well balanced base that aims directly to the dancefloor.
