Everyone But None - Earth and Wind (bodytalk)

Playa Del Carmen-based Everyone But None delivers the bodytalk label's third release with Earth and Wind, an EP featuring three original house music cuts. "Earth and Wind" kicks things off with a deep, sultry, and classic-sounding house melody and a mesmerizing break, perfect for a calm Sunday afternoon. "Everything Making Sense" takes a different direction with its sleazy bass line and ghostly desire-filled vocals -- a sure hit for the portion of the night best suited to slow-mo sounds. "Just Dance", the dirtiest of the three, comes loaded with a kick that will resonate through any sound-system and a tripped out vocal menacingly leaving no option but to do as the title commands. Finally, what would a release be without a little help from friends? Label honcho Rey Aguilar lends his seasoned technique to remixing "Earth and Wind". The Aguilar style is all over this one with energetic drums moving the track in a forward motion and a chugging peak time groove topped by piano stabs. The release reminds once again that the relatively young bodytalk label does not disappoint.

Rey Aguilar - By All Means (bodytalk)

The bodytalk label, founded in Austin, Texas by Rey Aguilar and Joel Salas Jr., presents its debut single, “By All Means.” Produced by the aforementioned Rey Aguilar, “By All Means” is feel-good house music reminiscent of a sunny Monday afternoon at Ibiza’s infamous DC–10. It features a timeless organ bass line and a sultry vocal, and comes laced with sensory percussion speaking to the bodies on the dance floor. The first remix comes in two ‘re-envisions’ from renowned Orlando-based DJ and Fade Records proprietor Chris Fortier. The original’s organ is emphasized in a forthright single note frenzy with wicked snares topping off stuttered kicks and unforgiving deep sub frequencies. Fortier’s second mix is an ‘organ-less’ version that offers more room to breathe. The final remix comes by way of the Stranjurr Imprint’s very own Chris Luzz who dives deeper, using pads to create the needed space for a jacking bass riff. “By All Means” a necessary new single.

Atnarko - “Nice one … Chris Fortier is banging it!”
CJ Mackintosh - “The original is nice.”
Hippie Torrales - “Nice old school feel.”
Tom Conrad (Adaptation Music) - “The original mix with its early ’90s vibe will be a sure-fire hit on the dance floor.”
Al Bradley (3am Recordings) - “I’m liking the Chris Luzz remix here … nice bouncy bass groove.”

Michael Fossati (Spirit of House) - “What a truly mesmerizing slice of late-night deepness by Chris Luzz.”
Norbert Borchers (House Sound of Hamburg) - “Damn - whats this? Very kicking ‘90s house sounds!“
LavaLava (SubCity Radio, Glasgow) - ”Big vibes on this! The Chris Luzz remix is great but I absolutely love the title cut … a total peak-time track.“
Bogdan Taran (Dance Box Radio Show, Latvia) - ”Lovely, clubby organ chords and house vibe.“
Joey Silvero (Distant People) - ”Cool throw back style … I’m always a sucker for this vibe. Chris Luzz also brings a slammin’ mix.”
DJ Lolly (Freek FM / Ruff Diamond) - “All the tracks here are fire. Big.”
CheckPoint Charlie (MyCuppaT) - “Old school vibes with a lovely modern, heavy bass twist. Very playable!”
Velanche (Velanche’s Playtime Radio Show) - “A very good single. I really enjoyed the original, and Chris Fortier’s mix just smashes it. I can’t wait to blend his remix in!”
DJ Nova (Rodon FM, Greece) - “I can’t say ‘no’ to the percussive club sound of the original but it’s the tight rhythm and classic deep underground power of the Chris Luzz remix that I need the most of here.”

Atnarko - Violent Sky (Dance:Revolt Recordings)

Introducing Dance:Revolt Recordings, a new label formed by a collection of scene veterans that is sure to make immediate waves on the international house music scene. Dance:Revolt is the brainchild of renowned Florida-based DJ/producer Atnarko in cahoots with Dub Creative Group, an industry-established marketing and media team as well as hosts of internationally recoginzed house music events. The label is intended as “a celebration of music and lifestyle,” working within a variety of formats, including vinyl 12” issues of Dance:Revolt’s releases.

It’s only fitting that the inaugural release be from Atnarko himself. His recent exploits have earned him much acclaim, with “Thinking Of You,” a collaboration with vocalist Sam Mollison for Fred Everything’s Lazy Day Recordings, being a recent highlight. Atnarko launches Dance:Revolt with the deceptively titled “Violent Sky.” As violent as the sky might be, Atnarko’s sublime cut is a smooth, bouncy, and deep affair propelled by a slinky rhythm track and an entrancing melodic riff. A strange spoken vocal can be found floating within the sonic space adding a bit of mystique. “Violent Sky” is a prime groover, queued and ready for the next set.

The enigma continues with Three Piece Suit, an assumed moniker of a producer who wishes to remain anonymous. Three Piece Suit’s version builds off the melody and places it on top of a polished breakbeat rhythm. Layers of lush synths round out the cut making it an excellent counterpart to the original. This is followed by a mix from Texas producer Rey Aguilar (Fade Records, petFood). Rey’s rework brings things back to house music’s four-on-the-floor for a nightclub-ready treatment with peak time elements. The big breakdown section at midpoint should shake things up nicely. Finally, Mallorca-via-Baltimore producer Lomez (Hypercolour, My Favorite Robot) adds his seasoning to a slightly darker take characterized by hefty analog-style synth stabs, a chunky mid-tempo beat, and a growling low end. It’s an evocative mix that will fit perfectly among covert after-hour gatherings.

Giom - “Woo-hoo Atnarko is back! Good mixes all round.”
Dubfire - “The Rey Aguilar remix is the bomb!”
Nick Warren - “Three Piece Suit and Lomez mixes hit the spot for me.”
Brett Johnson - “Deep and floppy. I like this a lot!”
Diz (Vizual / Classic Music) - “A really nice early evening boogie for that super late after party. Nice one.”
DJ Rocca (Ajello) - “Welcome back, Atnarko! The original is the one for me.”
Joshua Heath - “Big ups to Atnarko on his new venture! Great release all in all. Love the original and Three Piece Suit rework. Lomez remix is dope, too. Thought it was going in one direction and totally did the opposite.”
Q-Burns Abstract Message - “The original is totally up my street and will be firmly lodged in the box. Lotsa bounce to the ounce!”
Chris Todd (Crazy P / Hot Toddy) - “Rey Aguilar mix is my pick, will play.”
Severino (Horse Meat Disco) - “Great stuff here, all mixes.”
Holmar Filipsson (Thugfucker) - “Wicked package. Really like the Rey Aguilar mix and the Lomez mix.”
DJ Schwa (Shades Of Gray) - “Rey Aguilar remix is wicked!”
Andrew Grant (Circoloco) - “Lomez mix is quality.”
CheckPoint Charlie (MyCuppaT blog) - “Nice and chunky, just the way I love it! The original is great, the breaky vibe on Three Piece Suit is superb, and the Lomez Lost Society mix is a bass-juiced monster. Fantastic!”
