Kresy “Last Cocktail of Stallone (Vin Sol and Matrixxman Remix)”
Mixing sounds in some of the best clubs in Europe, the Asturian artist Alejandro Rodriguez aka Kresy is about to become one of the bright lights in this year’s scene of electronic and deep house music. His latest three track EP, “Ode to New York”, released by Freerange Records, shows he has his finger on the pulse of electronic dance music. Kresy’s track “Last Cocktail of Stallone” does not only convince his well-known colleagues, such as Jimpster or Nick Höppner, but also surprises the audience with fresh summer beats, peppered with disco and some slight deep house elements. Listening to the remix by Vin Sol and Matrixxman, you can immediately imagine yourself at a summer party underneath the palm trees of a desert island.
Glenn Astro “Love Jones”
The German artist Glenn Astro is probably better known in the realm of Hip Hop, where he spent the first years of his early music career. Only in 2013 did he really dive into the world of electronic dance music and we are more than glad he shares this tune with us. “Love Jones”, from his latest “Chemistry EP” by Tartelet Records, fits perfectly into this edition of HUGO Tracks. The song slowly takes you off into a tropical world and clearly represents the unique Glenn Astro style.
Frankey & Sandrino “Save”
The third track also has its origins in Germany. To be precise it comes courtesy of Berlin‘s Frankey & Sandrino. The combo, consisting of Frank Beckers and Sandrino Tittel, are no new faces to HUGO Tracks followers. A few weeks ago we introduced their remix of Alessio Pagliaroli‘s “Distractions”. This time, we are serving up their track “Save” from their “Save EP”, recently released by Innervisions. The spacy yet dreamy song contains some interesting deep house elements that might remind you of a trip through the jungle. It is definitely worth a listen.
Cloud “Jupiter Drift”
Scandinavian artist Cloud released his second and latest album “Hökarängen Space Program” by Exceptional Records back in 2010. Music buffs will recognize Cloud by his diverse sound and styles which are greatly inspired by his time in Berlin and Sweden's Gothenburg, as well as by his fellow label artist Plej. This diversity is also reflected in the rereleased song “Jupiter Drift”, whose jungle of different styles caught our attention. Starting off with rather smooth deep house and slow dubstep elements, Cloud continues with funky tunes that feel both natural and mechanical.
