A buoyant new single hits just in time for summer from Juan Hoerni, Los Angeles’s rising soulful house maestro, and his Cha Cha Project Recordings imprint. The Caviar Et Vin EP features three stunning deep vocal house cuts pulling from influences across R&B, disco, classic house, and Italo. Juan’s crystalline production and the gorgeous vocal delivery from Irantzu and Chezere make these tracks instantly stand out on the dance floor.
“Caviar Et Vin”, the first of two songs sung by Irantzu, imagines a lost ‘80s club classic pulled from the soundtrack of a hip French film. A bouncing synth bass line, swirling pads, and a cooler-than-cool saxophone solo make this one perfect for night cruising. Irantzu continues with sexy French vocals on “Computer Love,” a song that deftly combines Rhodes piano, a vocoder hook, and the sound of a familiar robot friend into an after hours gem. On the third track, vocalist Chezere makes her appearance on “Unlimited Capacities”. Somewhat funkier with a groovy bass line and plucky guitar hits, the cut nicely builds, providing a satisfying treat for the house heads on the floor.
Greg Dowling (Fish Go Deep) – “I’m feeling the real deep vibe of ‘Unlimited Capacities’.
Tyler Stadius (Deepsite) – “I dig the retro sound of ‘Computer Love’.
Jeannie Hopper (WBAI FM, NYC) – “Fabulous and welcoming … the more tunes from Juan the better!”
Michael Fossati (Spirit of House Web Zine) – “A truly ingenious release.”
Simon Kirk (Stag Beetle Radio Show) – “Brilliant Stuff. I love ‘Unlimited Capacities’, such a groove.”
Billy Butler (D3EP Radio Network) – “Lovely release! I’m liking all of the tunes here, amazing job.”
Jaymz Nylon (Nylon Recordings) – “I pick both the sexy and groovy ‘Computer Love’ and ‘Unlimited Capacities’.”
Stefan Popovic (DiscoTone Radio Show) – “This is so in the box. Hoerni doesn’t miss.”
Jon Wesley (Music Goes On Radio Show) – “I like all 3 tracks, but I love the 80’s vibe of ‘Caviar Et Vin’. Nice work as usual by Juan.”
DJ Nova (Rodon FM 95) – “Juan Hoerni continues to make his own unique sound. This fusion of Italo disco, French disco and deep house is more than attractive. Soulful, pop and funk attitude follows each track which all of them have wrenching programmed synth work. You simply don’t know which track to play first.”
