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.

RiCHARD.GEAR - Strange Magick (bodytalk)

RiCHARD.GEAR steps up to the plate for the bodytalk label’s second release with his new “Strange Magick" / "Be Free" single. RiCHARD.GEAR is the moniker of Austin born-and- bred DJ / producer Davey Schacherl. He is a longtime staple of the city’s underground club scene, having been active at many residencies and parties throughout the last ten years, most recently as a member of the Machine Discotheque DJ crew and party collective. Davey is also the manager for Whiskey Pickle, a label created at the onset of 2009 which has seen much success with their eclectic catalog of releases.

The release kicks off with the banging track “Strange Magick.” A feel-good floor filler with a house party vibe, it features a swinging beat, energetic vocal stabs, and sirens that are sure to stir up a mean ruckus. The punchy bass line sets the tone for the track with classic layered chord hits and a lush synth lead that ties it all together with both style and grace.

The second track, “Be Free,” takes on a more club-oriented atmosphere, employing creeping chord stabs and a headstrong bass line that eventually make way for the synth- laden breakdown. A pitched-down vocal reminds the listener that being yourself is the way to absolute freedom.

The mighty George Horn (Acryl Music, DeepWit) is tagged with remix duties for “Strange Magick.” George takes the original to a deeper realm of class and sophistication, where detailed chord work and precise production turn the track into an enchanting and melodic voyage.

Last, but not least, is the remix of “Be Free,” marking the debut of the mysterious production DJ duo M.I.J.A.S.. The track is reinterpreted into a raw, stripped-down techno jam with a massive kick drum and a morphing acid bass line that couple to form a dirty, jacking groove. Deep, reverberating chords complement the other pieces throughout, giving the track an extra element of unrestrained energy.

Ursula 1000 - “Hot!”
Severino (Horse Meat Disco / Dalston Superstore) - “Pretty cool.”
Vanilla Ace - “Big support for RiCHARD.GEAR!”
Robbie Hardkiss - “Cool sound here.”
Da Funk (Acryl Music / Pacha) - “George Horn’s take on here is nice.”
Sumsuch (Colour and Pitch) - “The George Horn remix is winning for me right now … tasty!”
Joey Silvero (Distant People) - “Loads going on in this really developed journey.”
JP Soul (Roam Recordings) - “Nice grooves. I like the deepness and flow of the George Horn remix.”
Daniel Poli (Suspect Package / Distant Strangers) - “The M.I.J.A.S. remix sounds cool.”
Myxzlplix (Subdivisions Global Radio) - “‘Strange Magic’k keeps it groovin’ for me. Nice and easy and slightly sleazy.”
Leri Ahel (Mutant Disco Radio Show) - “The M.I.J.A.S. remix is massive. Love it.”
Joan Ribas (Ibiza Soulstice / Cafe del Mar) - “Excellent grooves for the floor.”
Sam Hopkins (AccuRadio, Chicago) - “‘Strange Magick’ is a beautiful track, and George Horn’s remix of it is stellar!”

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.”
Louis Hughes (6th Sense Music) - “Classic groove and big sounds. Liking this a lot!”
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.”
