“The fourth album by Smooth Genestar has become the most personal and emotional work so far.
Rétrospectif offers a smooth and wide blend of Lounge, Downbeat, Chillout and NuJazz, influenced by the mood of classical music. So its no suprise, that classical instruments like Violins and Cello are playing an important role on the tracks.
Besides that, deep and jazzy chords on the Rhodes, melancholic chords on the Grand Piano and moving Pads will complete a sound full of longings.
“In 2013, the Remix Session Series has been continued with Edition Two.
Five years later, it returns with chapter 3, a prolific remixing collaboration of portuguese musician duo D-Echo Project and germany based producer Smooth Genestar.
This collaboration originates five brilliant remixes and an unreleased bonus track, providing a wide range of musical styles such as Lounge, Downbeat, Deep House and NuJazz. A nice transformation of each others work, while keeping the mood of the tracks.”
“Deep atmospheres with rhythm and a touch of dub is how Faserklang describes his music. You will find in Momenton not another dub album but the pre 2000 dub feeling known from artists like Rhythm & Sound, Maurizio and Vainqueur.
Momenton was produced with analog equipment and midi controllers, promising deep meditative dub techno with hints of melancholia here and there. Just listen or, if you like, dance to the music. It is perfect therefor.”
“Based in Antwerp (Belgium), female artist and producer Johanna von Pfeife releases 4 dynamic and energetic tracks.
As producer from one of the origin spots of trance, Johanna celebrates the roots of trance music, spiced with actual influences and technics.
Yet, her current release Devotional Dreaming has become driving and melancholic concurrent. You will always find an emotional touch within her arrangements, but on the other hand you will feel that her music was made for the floor.”
“The musician duo D-Echo Project from Peniche in Portugal returns with another, massive release. Volume 3 closes the cycle of the relaxed and meditative Unity in Diversity series with a smooth blend of Chillout, Lounge, Reggae and Dub – without focussing too much onto a single genre.
Carribian spirits and folkloristic elements are the perfect ingredients for a calmed musical journey. At a lounge bar, at the beach or while chilling at home – these tracks are made for pure enjoyment.”
“TvSky, a versatile electronic musician from Australia with roots in deep Dubtechno, returns again with a collection of seven spheric and melancholic tracks. Reaching the serene is a musical walk through a snowy forest right after the winter storm, enjoying the crystal clear air and the mysteries of the frozen landscape.
Dubtechno and Ambient moods, mixed up to a symbiosis of deep rhythms and relaxed soundscapes.”
