Review: Bucharest-based Victhor previously won plaudits for his collaborative EP on All Day I Dream. This TRYBESof label debut also includes some collaborative cuts, namely vocal and dub versions of 'Luna', an attractive fusion of rising and falling electronic melodies, attractive synthesizer sounds, steel pan style motifs and rolling, thickset tech-house grooves. Both are impressive and in-keeping with Victhor's trademark sound, but it's opener 'Al Oud' that really set our pulse racing. Piled high with exotic vocalisations, faintly foreboding chords, rubbery tech-house grooves and Middle Eastern/North African instrumentation, it's the most impressive Arabic house excursion we've heard for some time.
Review: With previous releases on Anjunadeep and The Soundgarden, New York City-based producer Wassu is back with this new release on TRYBESof, which is quite the fitting home for his brand of ethereal deep house. He teams up with British producer djimboh on the euphoric daydream fantasy of "Kavi" which you could imagine Lee Burrdige playing at a sunny rooftop party on a Sunday afternoon. The driving, groovy and percussive "Koumbou" has more of a tech house vibe, but the pair still manage in keeping it ultra deep. Finally, Wassu flies solo for one more track in the form of "Marianu" which is a glassy-eyed and bittersweet expression in mood music.
Review: Tel Aviv-based producer Shai T returns, after some impressive releases on top labels such as All Day I Dream, Anjunadeep and Lost Miracle. His new one is entitled 'Miracles' and comes courtesy of London's TRYBESOf. From the slinky and hypnotic bliss of the title track: a progressive house journey awash in a rich tapestry of synthetic meldies and meandering world music vocals, through to the esoteric themed euphoria of "Storyteller" which likes its namesake suggests is a proper narrative in dancefloor drama. Shai T follows up a high standard set before him on the label by the likes of his homeboy Roy Rosenfeld, Tim Green and Lost Desert.
