[COC013] Cup Of Chi vol.13.
24/02/2009

Artist: V/A
Title: Cup Of Chi vol.13.
Catalog Number: COC013
Release Date: 23/02/2009

1> Modul: Acider
2> AMB: Flagpole
3> Cooler: B'ala

Soon after the success of the 12th Cup of Chi, Modul kicks off the follow-up with the driving tech-house "Acider" - a kind of free-jazz battle between a wobbling, ever-ruling bass-line, a catchy hook, and densely slurping textures. AMB, who seems to have been popping back to the breaks wing recently, takes over with the energetic "Flagpole" that you probably wouldn't label cruel - until you arrive at the drop in the breakdown perhaps. Cooler concludes the package with "B'ala" delivering an excellent musical blend of acoustic and synthesized sounds.

DJ support: Nils Noa, Flore, B-Side, Grasshop, FreQ Nasty, Dark Globe, Mr No Hands, Tony Tay, Luke Solomon, Chris Fortier, Schiipman, Marka, Palotai, Angus Robinson, Dan Mangan, Corbin Dooley, Jaurelio, Murray Richardson, ...

Harper (Radio Euro): "Here comes another tasty Cup Of Chi. music quality is excellent and you can't it to anything really. for me it's all about brain melting Acider and superb Amb - Flagpole tune - i will support both tunes in my radioshows at radio EUro and Amb goes straight into my box. thanks!"
Andrew Duke: "Have been bangin' out that Modul track for awhile; diggin' the cooler vibes of the AMB and, pardon the pun, Cooler. :)"
G (Peepshow Ownerz): "Cooler's B'ala is the one for me. Sounds like a good old Leftfield song."

A whole year has passed since our last all rounder package, Cup Of Chi, yet again we bring to your door a selection of goodies, this time a careful mixture of beats, cuts, glitches, and just a bit of pepper. AMB's "Rust" has been hammering the breakbeat floors for some time now, which is followed by the massive Fine Cut Bodies techhouse rework of "Be Infected" (original by the Hungarian vocalist, Varga Zsuzsa). The closing piece is brought to you by the Hungarian glitch maistro: Kodek, who has prepared a deep melancholic downtempo for the colder winter nights.

[CHI020] AMB: Pellet
11/08/2008

Artist: AMB
Title: Pellet
Catalog Number: CHI020
Release Date: 11/08/2008

1> Original
2> Anomallies remix by Phil K + Habersham
3> Dan F killer bunnies remix

Another fun, tech-house number by AMB with not a hint of Nathan Fake-esque vibe although with carefully measured ingredients of heavily side-chained melodies and beats. Uplifting and fresh as a cold shower of rain on a hot summer day. Phil K and Habersham teams up to bring to life the Anomallies, which delivers an expertly crafted piece of re-work with an amazing attention to detail and production. Irregular, funky, and sexy. Also appearing on the remix duties is Dan F and his deadly assassin bunnies who go AWOL and cause significant damage to whatever comes their way. Being one of the most innovative producers out there at the moment, Dan F stays true to his reputation with this pleasantly dirty remix. Nice words and support somes from Ed2000, Vela, Hybrid, Slam, Mistress De Funk, Phonogenic, Mutiny, Chris Fortier, Hernan Cattaneo, Murray Richardson, Hynotech, etc...

Jelo: "Dan F. Killer Bunnies Rmx. is ill "
James Zabiela: "great stuff. Dan F's mix has gnarly bass!"
Deepgroove: "Sound like a winner - big love from us :)"
Sasha: "Pellet orig is ace"
Jeff Samuel: "phil k remix is cool, thanks!"
Someone Else: "i love Pellet (Phil K + Habersham rmx). amazing!"
Nick Warren: "wickedness , loving P&H remix"
Alex Parsons: "Wow... Phil K & Habersham's mix!!!! Will play this everywhere. Like the Original too. Thanks!"
Kraymon: "I THINK the Dan F one is doing it for me the most but I will have to digest them some more. As always Chi doing the fat-core business on the machines of audio delight."
Trevor Loveys: "nice deep house music,feeling this."
Danny Bonnici: "Awesome release!"
Chris Udoh: "Dope tracks guys."
Brian Ffar: "I really like the Phil K and Habersham remix. Very cool tune - creative with a very solid groove. Can't wait to play it out!"

Karl Moestl: "yes - i like theses new ways of electronic music!"
Phil Martinez: "Fantastic remix package. Phil K + Habersham and Dan F remixes will get serious playtime."
Dan Mangan: "stunning remixes. 10/10."
Grasshop: "Shocking reverie, eye vibrating rinse! Amb supplies a squirmish travelogue through his lunatic mind, which can be frightening or revealing, depending on the character of the listener. Besides the original one, Dan F comes closer to my ears. Nice pull, a bit more schizo, okay that's trendy now. The drilling bass is the only thing that reminds me of his glorious touch. Being one of my fave producers, Habersham is a disappointment here. Well beaten trademark sounds, too much of the claustrophobic feel, adding nothing more to the original."

You can find the tunes at Beatport (for 4 weeks exclusive, then all other places).


[CHI019] Fine Cut Bodies: Beaver Blink
21/07/2008

Artist: Fine Cut Bodies
Title: Beaver Blink
Catalog Number: CHI019
Release Date: 21/07/2008

Original <1
Zodiac Cartel remix <2
Luke Solomon remix
<3

Huncut Hacuka has just made it to Simian Mobile Disco's FabricLive compilation, and here is its brother from Kevin: Beaver Blink. With the perfect dosage of heavy weight and melodic components, Fine Cut Bodies delivers this tasty bit of tech-house for the peak-time hours. On remix duties this time there is Classic man Luke Solomon and the mysterious Zodiac Cartel. ZC stay close to their statement here "We want to sing the love of danger, the habit of energy and rashness". Unfriendlier than the original, although viciously hides the melodic bits of it. Luke Solomon takes a more laid back but darker direction, perfectly mixing dubby and techy elements with a hint of old-skool Orb ambience. Nice words and support from: Dan F, Smithmonger, Lee Mortimer, Chloe Harris, Danny Bonnici, and for more read below...

[CHI018] Myroslaw Bytz: Amfuem
30/06/2008

Artist: Myroslaw Bytz
Title: Amfuem
Catalog Number: CHI018
Release Date: 30/06/2008

1> Original (feat. Ben Riva on violin)
2> Fine Cut Bodies remix

Myroslaw Bytz's release has been making quite a buzz for some time with Phil K, Mylo, Hybrid, Laurent Garnier already indicating to share a very positive opinion. In fact, the FCB remix was also licensed to the Phil K compilation, "Hi Fi". Ben Riva's beautiful violin play spices up both tracks, coming in an excellently-crafted dub-delayed ambient fabric in the original, and a rough and glitchy drive, equipped with a sneaky melodic hook in FCB's version. More support already from the likes of Dark Globe, Audio Soul Project, Lisa Lashes, Slam, Si Begg, Jean-Paul Bondy, Nils Noa, Murray Richardson, Smithmonger, Dov, Tom Baker, etc...

Justin Robertson: "a beautiful tune! fine cut bodies for the floor, original for everywhere else!"
Volum (Volsoc) : "Definitely into this release. It's got a certain L'usine-esque feel to it, from the dsp'd out analog synth lines. The violins are a gorgeous touch, bringing about my favorite themes of floaty ambient lushness. The FCB remix is yet again a deadly release. I hear bits of Justin Maxwell's awesome dsp trickery. I will definitely be caning this one at the clubs."
Chris Fortier: "original is fantastic"
Habersham: "Fine Cut Bodies Remix is in my top 10 tracks of the last 2 years! Amazing, one of a kind stuff from Kevin....SO HAPPY it's getting released! And the original, this is my first time hearing it, but it's simply amazing."

[CHI015B] AMB: The Squirrel EP vol.2.
05/06/2008

Artist: AMB
Title: The Squirrel EP 2
Catalog Number: CHI015B
Release Date: 05/06/2008

Lutena <1
Impatique <2
Wisp <3

The first instalment of this double EP was released earlier this year, and very rapidly gained massive support by DJs and producers all over the place. Now AMB returns to complete the package with the second part and we bet it will be difficult to pick a favourite from the two. Three outstanding tracks, production is cheeky and the toppest notch. The bouncy 'Lutena' is a dance-floor focused pumping tech-house, 'Impatique' likewise, though with a more organic and warmer feel to it, and the smooth and laid-back breakbeat number 'Wisp' closes the EP. AMB at his best. Nice words and early support from: Stryke, Tom Baker, Kickflip, Nils Noa, Dark Globe, Murray Richardson, etc...

D.Ramirez: "Another stunning E.P from you guys. Love it!"
Danny Bonnici (NuBreed): "all 3 tracks are wicked.Nice work indeed!"
Habersham: "Another smoking release from Chi! As if it wasn't enough with The Squirrel part 1, you've gone and done it again! Impatique and Wisp are my faves here, Wisp harkening back to Urchin. Thanks for rocking me as always!"
Buckmaster De La Cruz (Gus Gus)
: "Impatique is the track for me. Tight in all aspects and i'll chart & play for sure."
Phil K: "awesome package!! all tracks are great and will be all getting lotsa action!! keep em coming!"
30Hz: "Really solid release.. great prouction form amb. Lutena is my favourite... not often I like happy dance music :)"
Smithmonger: "Really Like Lutena."
Janette Slack (Mixmag) : "The AMB mix is really good. The fiddlesticks mix is sucha breath of fresh air. Awesome work!"
Chloe Harris: "Lutena is ace. what a great sound. really trippy but has a great kick to it. impatique - wicked break. really surprising sounds. wisp - jazzy acidy breaks. pretty lush."
Jimmy Mofo: "it's extremely well produced!"
Brian Ffar: "I loved the first release, and EP 2 is just as good. This release is SUPER funky and totally up my alley. i can't wait to play this on a big system. Impatique and Wisp are my favorites. It's nice to hear luscious and creative electro!"

Peyote Road remixes
05/06/2008

AMB's remix for Peyote Road by Elite Force has just been released as 4 weeks exclusive on Beatport! Press release below:

The audio gems from the Elite Force archive keep on coming with this the latest chapter in the ongoing remix project from U&A recordings. 'Peyote Road' has always been a firm favourite with the Elite Force faithful and now gets it's 2008 update courtesy of much lauded label mate Hyperion and the uber talented Hungarian producer Amb.
The Hyperion mix has already found favour with the likes of Sasha, who included it in his season-opening set at Space in Ibiza last weekend. Their 'Sun of Cactus mix', is a remarkable slab of timeless house music, reminiscent of the likes of Underworld, with a warm, fuzzed out & thoroughly euphoric breakdown to compliment the thumping Infusion-like beats of this classy remix ... no small wonder that the BIG guns are all over this one.
Next up is Hungary's uber-talented Amb, who also throws down an awesome reworking. One of the most talented producers around at the moment & fresh from some serious action on EQ Grey it's not hard to see why he has such a legion of admirers for his seamless, melodic, progressive-styled house vibes. For good measure, the hugely respected original mix (as featured on James Zabiela's 'Alive' compilation for Renaissance) from 2004 is here too, as it appeared on the Kingsize label at the time.

"Wicked ! The funky shit !" - [Jody Wisternoff (Way Out West / Distinctive)]

"Been playing Hyperion's mix every set - it's killing it everywhere!" - [Meat Katie (Lot 49)]
"Nice Remixes of a classic E.F. track. Great Release" - [Scott Kirkland (Crystal Method / Indie 103.1 FM)]
"Both mixes are nice...!!!" - [Paolo Mojo]
"Really impressed with Hyperion's remix. Awesome breakdown!" - [Jaytech (Hussle & Bussle)]

Ghetto Fabulous remixes
09/05/2008

The great house remix FCB has done for the "evergreen" Ghetto Fabulous by Elite Force has just been released as 4 weeks exclusive on Beatport! Press release below:

Hot on the heels of the recent re-workings of 'Melodik Hypnotik', Elite Force returns with the next installment of the Revision remix project, a concept that sees classic records from his catalogue remixed by some of the hottest producers of the moment. The recording under deconstruction this time is the timeless 'Ghetto Fabulous' which was setting dancefloors alight in 2005 when the original was released on Kingsize Records.

The first of the 2 mixes comes from Dopamine, whose previous remixes for the likes of John Acquaviva, Alex Metric and Dan F have both maintained him a firm favourite of the breaks scene, and have given him a much broader appeal. Here he takes the original track and breathes new life into it with a simple rolling arrangement that retains much of the character of the original with added smackdown. The second of the mixes comes from Hungary's oft underrated production genius and DJ extraordinaire, Fine Cut Bodies, who takes things down a twisting house avenue, turning in a slow building track that rises in intensity whilst holding a tight hypnotic glam-groove. Both producers have excelled themselves on these mixes, and DJ support has been huge.

Once again U&A has proved itself as one of the most exciting purveyors of fine electronic music out there, and DJ reactions have once again been outstanding. Here is a short selection:

"Both cool, but wow, fine cut bodies is really amazing. awesome!!!" [Jesse Desenberg (Kid Kenobi)]
"Dopamine rips this remix to bit.. love it finecutbodies... everything they do is fantastic and this is no exception. excellent release" [Ben Ervine (Ben & Lex / Functional Breaks)]
"Both remixes are sick. i would venture to say this is my favorite fcb work to date." [Jimmy Brayks (Nuskoolbreaks.co.uk)]
"Dopamine cant do anything wrong at the mo :) Big support on this one" [Aston Shuffle (Ministry Oz)]
"Lovin the dopamine mix." [Tom Autobot (The Autobotz / Broke Recordings)]
"Fine Cut Bodies Mix is the one for me." [Nils Noa (Lot 49)]
"Go Dopamine ! Top mix in the place. Will be dropping this one." [Dave (Aquasky)]

Release Date: 06/03/2008

1> Huncut Hacuka
2> Huncut Hacuka (Audio Soul Project remix)
3> Huncut Hacuka (Kodek remix)
4> Huncut Sample Pack

This time FCB comes equipped with a new remix single 'Huncut Hacuka', a package of tech-house rollers, supported by the additional heavy ammunition of two excellent producers, Audio Soul Project and Kodek. Support comes from the likes of Simian Mobile Disco, Elite Force, Chloe Harris, etc...

Laurent Garnier: "funky ,raw and very organic will definitely play that"
Mike Truman (Hybrid): "Another great release from Kev and the Chi family, the original is as trippy as you'd expect but with some unusual melodic elements. The Audio Soul Project remix up's the intensity but it's the Kodek mix that does it for me. Properly demented!! Nice one."
Capoeira Twins: "Love the original! Great production, nice and deep, soulful slinkiness.....niiiice!"
Chris Carter (TCR): "as ever, an amazingly well crafted combination of technical wizardry and musical subtlety, truly classy. 2 excellent remixes which do full justice to the original, and both top notch in their own right."

Drumattic Twins: "great production ,, like the kodek mix"
Nils Noa: "another great release from chi. full support from me."
Smithmonger: "Like original but Kodek mix is fucked up -Love it!"

- Original

A very fun house number with a xylophone-hook and orchestral strings on top of the usual FCB forest of creaks, squeaks, and crunches. Every sound is where they should be, not one bit in the wrong place - production is as ever.

- Audio Soul Project remix

ASP doesn't need an introduction as he's been a production wizz for years with a great number of records released on a load of various labels. While sticking rather close to the original, ASP takes his mix towards a more driving direction and a drier edge of tech-house. More for the floor.

- Kodek remix

Kodek certainly is a name to watch in the future. His beautifully crafted downtempo 'Computer Made Love Song' featured one of the 'Cup of Chi' comps earlier on with strong feedback from all over the place. It's tech-house this time, built around a heavily driving bassline that either rips or gently twists your head off, dependant on the mood you're in. Peak-time business.

- Huncut Sample Pack

Just a pack of samples of Huncut Hacuka, for those who want to work out their own version of the tune.

[CHI015A] AMB: The Squirrel EP vol.1.
14/02/2008

Artist: AMB
Title: The Squirrel EP 1
Catalog Number: CHI015A
Release Date: 14/02/2008

Pilgrimage (feat. Omid Pajooh) <1
Urchin <2
Theory <3

It's been a while since the last AMB release on the label but apparently it was well worth the wait: He is back with The Squirrel double EP, holding 6 tracks in total, three on each. The first installment is out already and have gained massive support by producers and DJs all over the place from DJs like Murray Richardson, Joshua Collins, Matt Flores, Smithmonger, Mike Monday, Ed2000+Vela, Dov, Brett Johnson, Mistress De Funk, Stryke, Crystal Method, Speculum, Peter Kruder, etc...

Trickski: "Pilgrimage is an outstanding track! it's one of the tunes of the year for me."
Laurent Garnier: "i love track 1 and 2 for the floor ,and track 3 for the radio Great stuff!"
Cass @ DeadSet: "Some typically cool and varied beats on this Chi release"
Laura
: "i am having internet problems and the player won't load, otherwise i'd give you some feedback..."
Habersham: "Hot Trax! Production is EXCELLENT, I expect no less from AMB and Chi! Urchin is my fave here but believe me the others are just as good!"

Paul @ General Midi: " Man I'm diggin these! dunno if'd play em out but i've got em on my phone and they're providing a soundtrack for me journey's Big Up the man like AMB!!!"

- AMB feat. Omid Pajooh: Pilgrimage

First up is a brilliantly produced house track with vocals by the London-based Iranian singer, Omid Pajooh. A kind and gentle tune with triplets, pleasing melodies, and a wicked hook of heavily processed vocals that sneaks right in the centre of the nervous system.

- AMB: Urchin

The hilarious Chinese vocals powerfully set the mood for this track right in the beginning. It would be a little difficult to tell exactly what genre we are looking at but up to about halfway through, it is certainly close to house and well.. After that, things go a bit off track and it all ends in some weird dub somewhere near the end of the Universe.

- AMB: Theory

Glitch hop at its best - fat and groovy bassline, rich melodies, and tiny bits of glitches and errors everywhere in the hip-hop space. 'Theory' cites the chilled glitchy coolness of the West Coast while heading a bit towards the Far East in the breakdown.

[COC011] V/A: Cup Of Chi vol.11.
03/02/2008

Artist: V/A
Title: Cup Of Chi vol.11.
Catalog Number: COC011
Release Date: 03/02/2008

1> Cooler: Hypnotised Cornflakes
2> DST: We Are Robots
3> Asthring+Franklin Deluxe+NoeNoe: Mom

Cup of Chi, the series that each time brings together 3 songs of various genres, has reached it's 11th release. DST may not ring a bell to all ears, although he's been in the electro and dubstep scene as a producer and DJ for many years now. Franklin Deluxe and Asthring this time teamed up and not only together but with singer Noenoe too, and Cooler shows us how to hypnotize a plate of corn flakes. Nice Words come from the likes of Mr Velcro Fastener, Espion, Keltec and...

Janette Slack: "Awesome quality production, amazing attention to detail, can't wait to hear what these dudes do next."
DJ Tamsin: "Wikkid glitchy funkstuff. More pleasure from Hungary...lovin it :-)"
Neil @ PhantomBeats: "Excellent, interesting stuff as usual. Lovely production again! :)"
Jason Sparks: "Hypnotised Cornflakes rocks my bowl."
Laurent Garnier:
"really like the DST track lovely electro number"
Habersham
: "Wow this is one of my fave Chi releases in ages! Every track is superb, and different from one another so that I will love playing them ALL!!! EXCELLENT WORK!"
Kickflip: "All round, a wicked EP! "
Brian Ffar: "I really like We Are Robots - nice proper electro with a twist!"
Dov: "Otherworldly sounds on this EP from Chi Recordings, the quality rising with each new release, both the track by 'Cooler' and the one by 'DST' work well for me and will receive many plays."
Nils Noa: "chi rec is becoming one of my fave labels at the moment. :)"
Kriece: "these are all amazing - very original - will play especially Cornflakes & Robots"
Cass @ DeadSet: "Loving the robots. Almost like Aphex Twin, but actually playable. - really nice work."
Jesse Somfay: "Nice work, really mental. My favorite is DST's 'We Are Robots'. Nice and mellow."
Ben Mono: "yummie flakes!"

- Cooler: Hypnotised Cornflakes

We've already had records featuring our in-house medical-student-music-manipulator, Cooler. Now he's back with his new house number that in fact, does give the impression sometimes of your average morning plate of hypnotized corn flakes.

- DST: We Are Robots

Heavily influenced by the works of Tipper, Si Begg and Aphex Twin, DST delivers this glitchy piece of breaks that creates a perfect harmony between the nasty, cold environment of robotic noises and rich, warm textures.

- Asthring + Franklin Deluxe: Mom (featuring Noenoe)

Like a bunch of glitchy musical garbage - sounds are going crazy, nasty, and very bad here but it makes absolute sense with some vocals and keyboard elements brought to role. FD and Asthring teamed up with vocalist Noenoe for this occasion only.
