5 Years of Desolat
Words: Ryan Webb
Marking the Five Year Anniversary of the label, the 2×12″ sampler is set for release in February 2013, and features exclusive new tracks from artists in the Desolat Family; Loco Dice, Shlomi Aber, Yaya, Horatio, tINI, Hector, Lucero en Vivo and Alexkid. Because this is a milestone anniversary, the release also sees Loco Dice supply a mix packed with the brand new productions from the 2×12″, plus a few special extras.
Loco Dice starts us off with “Lolopopinho”, a real fast paced track, which gets the heart pulses up a notch or two. The mesmerism interchanging of beats dances perfectly with the deep line bass. The subtitle breaks in pace is also a highlight, adding depth to a dance tune which has been well thought out. A real thoroughbred.
Shlomi Aber’s “Mancha” begins with a floor beater of bass that builds to the forefront in the opening minute giving a sensation that a great energy is coming closer from afar. This introduces male vocals, which are muffled. The beat from Sholomi Aber is very much bass oriented with flickers of drum percussion, whilst Yaya‘s “Our Connection” uses male French vocals to sex up a slow and driving synth, it struggles to carry the energy from the previous tracks, but makes up for it with a very infectious bouncing rhythm.
tINI‘s “Room 305″ returns the energy with rasping synths tucked together with soulful vocal samplings. The bass intertwines well with the stripped down sound, while Lucero En Vivo‘s “La France” bustles with everything that is French. Shouting female voices give rise to a samba drum beat that tussles and bustles. Drum percussions are later added to give depth. In contrast Alexkid‘s “Enty” is a softer, silkier sound; a little atmospheric gem that mixes gradual synths with a low and cutting beat. The bass cuts in gradually, and the cutting beat grows louder. This is a track that shouldn’t be overlooked.
Release Date: 04 February 2013
