Los Angeles soulful house label Cha Cha Project Recordings has been going from strength-to-strength, now spotlighting three of the label’s core producers and a trio of vital Lost Tracks.
The EP launches with label don Juan Hoerni in collaboration with the amazing vocalist Chezere. With a discography of over thirty cuts for the likes of Vega Records, Large Music, and WAX, as well as his acclaimed albums Love On High and Move Mountains on his Cha Cha Project label, Juan continues to make waves in the soulful house universe. “Eternally Free” shows Juan’s acumen for deep, melodic music complimenting beautiful vocals, as well as his sharp production aesthetic. This sexy sound will create late night dance floor action for years to come.
Steve Graeber is an accomplished studio saxophonist-turned-producer, known for his work with Chicago house legend Roy Davis Jr. as well as contributions to the records of Glenn Underground, Boo Williams, and many others. With vocalist Julia Prudence, Steve has uncovered “Filthiest Disco,” a deep and emotive cut that fuses the Chicago sound through its drum programming with the polished, soulful Cha Cha vibe. Funky bass, guitars, clav keys, and Steve’s trademark sax riffs make this a DJ’s choice.
Also part of the Cha Cha Project family is Zachary Mouton, an audio engineer who has been collaborating closely with Juan Hoerni at his Route 2 Recording Studios. While working with Juan on the Love On High album, the two recorded the funky, acid-jazz flavored track “Dirty”, which includes keyboard work from Scott Wozniak. This cut is dance floor fire, complete with a potent breakbeat, a jazzy stand-up bass line, catchy sax riffs, and a wild guitar breakdown from Zachary. Cha Cha comes correct!
