35 Graus', meaning 35 degrees, is the debut EP from new label Sol Recordings.
The label will focus on music which spans the house spectrum and launches with a four artist sampler including big hitters Moodymanc and Rick Wade alongside Lulu Gaultier and label boss AMarques.
The first promos have huge support by Danny Tenaglia, Laurent Garnier, Lovebirds, Charles Webster, DJ T, Giom, Johnny Fiasco, Hippie Torales + many more.
Moodymanc is also known as Dubble D and one quarter of Ralph Lawson's 2020 Soundsystem
project. His remix of New Orleans' is a laidback deep blend of tribal percussion, warm pads, keys and saxophone stabs. The Moodymanc alias was created back in 2007 for 2020 Vision and has since
appeared on Dessous, Tsuba, Hudd Traxx and Baker Street amongst other discerning labels. Under
his guise as Dubble D, Danny Ward released two albums and a string of EPs for 2020, as well as music for Grand Central, Winding Road and Third Ear. And as 2020 Soundsystem's resident drummer he has
released two critically acclaimed albums and graced the cover of DJ Mag.
One of Detroit's best kept secrets, Rick Wade has been producing late night tracks and tapping into
the essence of deepness since the '90's. Known for their universal appeal and appearing on several labels worldwide - such as Rush Hour, Deep Vibes, YORE and Spectral Sound - soulful, timeless grooves
are his signature. Deepnights' represents his sound perfectly with a blissful and spacey late night/early morning vibe underpinned by a slap bass. Rick runs two labels of his own - Harmonie Park Records which specialises in deep house and Bass Force Records which specialises in Booty/Ghetto-Tech. Growing up one hour outside of Chicago he was influenced by Chicago radio station WBMX and the Salsoul material and local stations that played the likes of Al Green and Isaac Hayes, before later moving to Detroit which he now calls home.
AMarques and Lulu Gaultier both appear on the label with their debut releases. The former lays down a
lush groove containing a big sub bass, skittering percussive elements, warm enveloping chords and a subtle organ lead line to pull things together, while the latter follows a similar path but injecting a little more drive.
