Review: Something of a curveball here from Solomun's Diynamic Music, as they take a swerve into Italo-disco territory courtesy of Sicilian producer Mauro Di Martini, who's been turning out this kind of tackle on a regular basis since the late 80s, whether under his own name, as Musumeci or in various other guises. The four tracks featured are all collaborations and between them feature six different co-conspirators, but suffice to say if you're an Italo lover you'll find much to enjoy, while Lehar collab 'Bells Of Freedom' probably has the most non-specialist appeal with its surging, proggy synths and throbbing electronic b-line.
Review: Caserta's Andy Bros is back on Hanseatic powerhouse Diynamic for the third time, following up some top releases of late for the likes of Chapter 24, FFRR and Redlight Music. On his terrific new Dreams EP, he serves up the slinky and hypnotic title track which is awash in layers of shimmering melodies and sounds incredibly majestic. This is followed by the emotive dancefloor drama of "The Crane" which is sure to get a major headrush or two in the main room, and ending with the moody futurist chugger "Diamante Blu" which is optimised for proper tunnel vision when the strobe comes on - this one will appeal to fans of the Innervisions and Exit Strategy sound.
Review: Italian Producer Andy Bros hails from Caserta (near Naples) and presents his second release for Hamburg house institution Diynamic, following up last year's well received Essenza EP. Starting off with the dark and moody journey track "Midnight Love" which is guided by a razor sharp arpeggio shimmering away beneath all the eerie pads and adrenalised rhythms. Next up is some evocative mood lighting in the form of "Family Ritual" which features some impressive orchestral arrangements. Finally "Hilltop Town" further demonstrates the classically trained musicianship that this producer possesses, featuring some impressive piano parts and lush strings over this gradually building progressive/ tech house groove.
Review: Diynamic keeps on with its recent explorations of big room tech house with newcomer Andy Bros who serves up some surefire dance-floor fodder on the Essenza EP. The title track is a right stormer with its doomy Carl Craig style horns, humming bassline and white noise washes. Ticks all the boxes really! He ups the ante on "Vino & Faggotini" however a day at a Italian trattoria this ain't; more like a wild rollercoaster ride through pre-peak time clubland! This is one of those dark, Life & Death style journey tracks and you'll love it. Finally "Pleiadi" picks up on the same vibe as the first track with those horn sounds making a return plus some elevating strings and melodics, pretty epic too!
