May ’16 Review and Mike Griego

In this episode I conduct a review of the best tracks released in May of 2016.  I also feature the debut release on microCastle from Mike Griego, an Argentinian producer.  I play the original version of the title track, Idioglossia in Set 3, and the Bog Remix of that track in Set 2.  May ’16 Review and Mike Griego

The title track ‘Idioglossia’ quickly builds a really unique, distinctive groove, with rich percussive elements meeting a catchy little hook and a pulsing bassline, and Mike Griego weaves in even subtler melodies as the track heads into the trippy, abstract breakdown, which sets a powerful, head-spinning second half. The remix of ‘Idioglossia’ comes from Bedrock’s BOg,... His version of the track borrows the warmth from Mike Griego’s original, while transforming the vibe with restrained percussion, sparse but heavy bass tones, and shimmering, layered rippling melodies, and distinctive vocal samples. The middle sequence throws in some dreamier synths, which add additional texture as the remix its lovely finale.

A new microCastle release is always worth hearing, and Mike Griego delivers the goods here as he always does. The highlight for my money, though, is BOg’s delightful remix of ‘Idioglossia’, which will further cement his reputation amongst fans of melodic and intelligent music sitting on the boundary between progressive house and techno.

The rest of the show is dominated evenly by Techno, Deep House, and Chill Out tracks.

In this episode dominated by Techno and Deep House, I feature brand new music from Maduk, Luc Angenehm, Cameron Thias & Anna.

Despite the fact that the show itself is dominated by Techno and Deep House, the first set, which features two tracks by Maduk, is dominated by Drum & Bass.  The two Maduk tracks are from the new release, Never Give Up, which is out now on Hospital Records.

The second set features tracks by Luc Angenehm and Anna.  These are  the sole techno tracks in a set otherwise dominated by Deep House.

Three of the four Deep House tracks in this set are from two new excellent compilations out on City Life.  These are Elfenstaub Vol. 18 – Deep Electronic Journey Through Time & Space, and Zirkus Zirkus, Vol. 13 – Elektronische Tanzmusik.

In the third set I really go all out with the techno, and feature a great track called Zippo by Cameron Thias.  The track is actually composed significantly of the unmistakable sounds of a Zippo lighter.

In the fourth and final set, more tracks from Cameron Thias, Anna, and Luc Angenehm.  The set is evenly divided between Techno and Deep House, with a bit of Tech House tossed in for good measure.
