Review: Five years on from the release of his debut album, Gymnastics, Ramon Lisandro Quezada finally serves up a follow-up. Conjure is a fine set that neatly showcases the varied sides of the prolific deep house producer's output. So, we get Iberican tribal drums fused with hazy trumpet solos ("Feed Off Of"), dreamy ambience ("Candlelit"), groovy downtempo beats (the hip-hop influenced "Supafly"), sumptuous and sensual dancefloor deepness ("Lotus (In Memory Of)"), and dark, intense, occasionally dubbed-out late night business ("Whistle Song", "Visitation", the stripped-back hip-house of "Toc"). There's little in the way of filler or fluff, and plenty of playable, club-ready material.
Review: DJ Qu's Strength Music returns with more darkroom dubs. On the first side, we have Spanish-American producer Willie Graff once again collaborating with Italian scene stalwart Giuseppe Tuccillo - following up some great music they've done for the likes of Freerange, Local Talk and Finale Sessions several years ago. Rest assured they're in top form again on "To The Music". But it's boss man DJ Qu's remix up next that will entrance you with its rich tapestry of immaculate rhythms, reaching near tribal moments. On the flip, he serves up a new original in the form of "Figure Six" but instead this one is a brooding, tunnelling, heads-down affair for the late night.
Notes: Since it's inception in 2005, Strength Music Recordings has seduced dance floors around the Globe with it's particular take on Dance Music. While each release ranges in musical styles, the labels outlook still remains pure with the founding concept of solely contributing to a scene that started long before the labels existence.
