STYLUS HEAT – PICK UP FUNK EP is out now !!!



 

Tracklist:
 

A.1 The thing to do
B.1 PickUp Funk
B.2 Going home

 

These 2 Stuttgart Germany funkateers Blunted Monkz (Danny Sugaman) and Linntronix (Philip König) accidentally met in Tübingen while Blunted Monkz was in on a gig. They instantly clicked and fast forward to now as they debut their new collaborative effort as Stylus Heat with 1203. 1203 is a disco affair all the way through with some hot guitar licks from Blunted Monkz father throughout. The record opens up with The Thing To Do a soulful disco jam with the keys, guitar,funky bass, crispy beat and grooving vocal samples all doing their job in the pocket and sure to keep the party moving into the deep AM hours. Next we hear Pickup Funk a minimal funk joint with a riding rhythm simple melody some exciting twists and turns at the break. These guys show their musicianship well on this song. This very dope EP closes out with a deep and soulful groove called Going Home. This deep house gem is dripping with soul, grooves and just a touch of moodiness in the vocals. Going Home is just what you wanna play at the end of a party right before the lights come back on.

SOUL IMAGO VARIOUS ARTISTS 002



 

Tracklist:

A.1 Steven Wooblejay – Soul Control
A.2 MadDai – AnnaMaria
B.1 Tim Toh – Misery
B.2 Melodiesinfonie – Toothpaste

 
Soul Imago returns with the 2nd sampler from the German imprint and this one picks up where the last one left off with some nice basement grooves and nice experimental hip hop beats.
The sampler starts with „Soul Control“ a Detroit-esque house chugger from French producer Steven Wobblejay who’s already made remarkable records on labels such as Compost Records, Jazzmin Records, K7 and FACES.
He is also known for his work with Creative Swing Alliance with Pablo Valentino. The A side closes with a smoothed out hip hop joint with plenty of rhodes and swing from MadDai from Stuttgart Germany who outside
of producing beats is a multi audio talent also doing live beats showcases on his SP. The B-side starts off with „Misery“ from Stuttgart born Berlin based producer Tim Toh.
Misery is an off kilter house jammy with a light touch on the drums and a very abstract but also straightforward melody line. It’s a six minute jam that feels more like 3 as the sounds melt away the time.
This one will do well for fans of Theo Parrish and the more jazz oriented side of deep house music.
Just like the A side Soul Imago shows it’s not only a dance label but is all about the beats with a swingy chop heavy hip hop joint from Swiss producer Melodiesinfonie
called „toohpaste“. Toothpaste is a jazzy venture with recognizable acapella chops that set it off just right.
Melodiesinfonie is co-founder of Boyoom Connective and has worked with labels such as HHV, Box Aus Holz, Soulection and even for Soul Imago back in 2012.
All in all This second sampler is a testimony of what the label and it’s artists are all about. Good music and good vibes.

SOUL IMAGO VARIOUS ARTISTS 001


 

Tracklist:

A.1 Soulphiction – Swing Low
A.2 Lay-Far – Looking for Changes (Pablo Valentino Remix)
B.1 Noa Siano – Rhodesy
B.2 Duktus & Blunted Monkz – Tokyo Hotel

 
Soul Imago is finally back! After three successful releases as the Soul Imago Sampler, Lay-Far´s Detour Ep and the 15-tracks-compilation there has been a pause.
Now the label’s bosses Pablo Valentino and Blunted Monkz are back and present a fantastic 4-tracker on vinyl.
Soul Imago offers a perfect combination of tracks. Firstly, there is Soulphiction´s “Swing Low“: Minimalistic, crazy and perfectly animating – this record is a tight combination of its elements and offers loads of fun.
Secondly, Pablo Valentino’s “Looking for changes” Remix is deep and dirty from the beginning. The track takes on the EP’s atmosphere and is full of emotions due to the dope vocal samples.
Then, we immediately have Noa Siano´s “Rhodesy”. Everybody likes to dance to this track on the B side which constitutes the vinyl’s dynamic highlight. Last but not least, the talents Duktus and Blunted Monkz worked together.
Their “Tokyo Hotel” is kind of a mixture of jungle and big city and tells a story. Among other things, it’s a story of people making music that has not existed before. The rest of the story happens while listening.
This release is limited to 250 copies worldwide, enjoy !
