Various – Moxy Editions Vol.5 – Moxy Muzik – 12″
Four more certified stompers from the Moxy Muzik camp with the fifth release in their Editions series seeing Sydney Charles, Phil Weeks, Mene and Syrossian all providing the goods.
Up first, Sidney Charles’ ‘House To Heal’ was first played by Charles at Darius Syrossian’s sold out Moxy OFF sonar pool party in Barcelona, Sidney’s opening track, the place erupted, Darius signed it on the spot! Only a few hours old, the track was getting its first play, with Darius subsequently spinning it in New York and Hideout festival to a deluge of ID requests.
Next the French maestro Phil Weeks lays down ‘Superfly’ a slick, smooth, funk-flavoured groove topped off with the perfect party starting sample. Exactly the kind of top shelf business you would expect from Mr Weeks.
On the flip, Syrossian merges ‘90s UK garage and US house vibes for ‘Right There’. Chuck in a pure diva vocal and a stomping trademark kick and you have a fierce driving dancefloor belter with support from a whole host of DJs on the circuit.
Mene – No Me Impolta closes out the EP written by the two Serbian producers that have been making waves lately, Mene & ACA (YU). A Latin-inspired groover, that’s received massive support from Loco Dice and Jamie Jones, with both making this an anthem of their parties in Ibiza last summer, after receiving upfront copies from Darius.
