Review: Quality Vibe sub label Traxx Underground (founded in 2012 and run by Samann) is the latest imprint to get hold of more valued work from the vaults of legendary Brian Garrett aka Javonntte, following up his appearances on labels like Quintessentials, LPH White and Skylax. The Italian label presents the deep and soulful bounce of "Makes Me Feel" a classic and timeless stateside house feel. On the flip, we are treated to the super sexy JB Dub which is injected with more dancefloor dynamics and a handy instrumental version too.
Review: For the latest missive on his fast-rising Traxx Underground imprint, Samann has recruited Tieffrequent regular Siggatunez. In keeping with the imprint's classic New Jersey and San Francisco deep house influences, Street Sessions Part 1 is a warm, hazy and hugely enjoyable affair, with the Berlin-based producer conjuring up a trio of timeless tracks packed to the rafters with breezy positivity. He begins with the bumpin' NJ beats, toasty electronic pianos and eyes-closed electronics of "From The Bottom", before emphasizing the soul on the rolling, Chez Damier style goodness of "If". The EP's final track, "Latenight Tale", boasts all manner of sun-kissed instrumentation and some wonderfully organic beats, making it sound like a tribute to the halcyon days of San Fran's legendary Naked Music label.
