“This Various Artist LP is a best of the tracks we received this year and published on the channel. In one year we received more than 3000 demos, uploaded more than a 100 tracks (premieres & free downloads), selected les than 10 for our next releases.”
“Each December we release a compilation that reflects the current year and looks ahead to the next. It’s a mix of tracks where artists complement each other and where we feature some of their strongest work. It can be seen as a proud collection of tracks that defines the Atomnation sound.”
“On this release, probably the best of all our remixes: ‘Mania de Você’ by Rita Lee, nicknamed ‘Água na Boca’ (Mouthwatered), a work upon de subtleties of the original track to blossom its Disco rhythm. ‘For The Sake Of Love’ by Claudja Barry, aka ‘Luv Luv Luv’, made us break a sweat to achieve a 7min slow burner from a 3min original track. Track 3, the cover of ‘Lose Yourself to Dance’ from Daft Punk made by Madblush, accompanied by our favorite Rhodes timbres. Last but not least, ‘Legacy’ by Cairo Braga, the track that has been getting new meaning since the decision to dissolve the J4ck Sh4rk duo, an appropriation of its text in the process of ending a relationship, the belief in forever, the prayer for it was not all in vain, where each one of us leaves all we know, all we like and we hope you like it too.”
“Now reaping in what they have been sowing in the previous years, a selection of tracks that shows their work in the studio. Like how ‘Within You Without You’ pays homage to break beats and acid sounds and ‘Losing My Religion’ shows full control in a re-imagined pool side relaxing disco track.”
“GPHG005 sees Group Hug shot-caller Attack Yourself! finally step up for his own release on the label with Hug Life, a 90s Chicago house throwback with bumping 909 drums and playful, jazzy loops.
On remix duties is Lancashire’s Verlenen (aka Simba) who takes the track up a notch with a relentless pounding groove and some quirky added samples. Like Moodymann if he ate too much Haribo.”
“After the longest hangover ever, due to too much birthday partying all over the place (Leaving Santiago, Going to Milano, Flying to Chicago, Then Back Santiago) we are back (never sick of that) to drop some – last minute – summer hits, considering that Mexican Monkey didn’t make it to number one yet.
Its another debut on Upitup: Corporate Control is about to takeover the remaining (and best) days of your summer. Ten Dry Nails is the official soundtrack for melting cars on a highway traffic jam. Driven mainly by genuine creativity and spontaneus, lo-fi attitude, here’s a blend of silky housey chords, colourful melodies, cheap out-of-tune synths and shitty 96 kbps Linndrums. Moving between 80’s garage house, sub-par disco and cheesy synthpop Ten Dry Nails is a highly enjoyable and solid work of simple, honest and raw excellence! A heavy set of mindmelting hits, cleverly carved from tape hiss, and topped with bitter sweet melodies and deep beats. Download and enjoy what Corporate Control just cooked for you, another instant classic upitup release.”
“Welcome To Büromaschinen is Büromaschinen‘s first release on Upitup, and it’s a perfect introduction to his sound.
With a selection of tracks produced in the last decade, this album includes some of his secret classics like Approaching Sector X, Dotchidabe, Sabrina and Freescape, that are both perfect for the dancefloor and personal listening. Welcome To Büromaschinen is the ideal soundtrack for the best Sci-Fi film that everybody loves but never existed.”
