From the farthest reaches of humanoid computation comes the production team and DJ duo of Android Cartel. Based out of Los Angeles, robot masters Reagan Denius and Christopher Mohn are responsible for crafting the sound of West Coast tech-house and have exploded onto the scene with a ravenous force. In a short period of time these Androids were picked up by Steve Lawler for the VIVa MUSIC roster and have released work on such labels as EQ Recordings, Fade Records, Tekfunk and Railyard.
For remix duties we turn to another of VIVa Music's most talented up & coming duo's, Strict Border. In only a short period of time these Canadian-based drum crazy producers have released a stream of main-floor stormers for such labels as VIVa Music, Kling Klong Records, Starter Records, Rawthentic, F*** House Music and Bosphorus Underground. On this outing they showcase their love of heavy percussion as their meticulous drum programming propels the dancefloor into a world of hypnotic tribalism.
Railyard co-owner Matt Xavier ended the summer in style riding a wave of deep house flavor with Reality Therapy EP on Railyard. He followed that up with a smooth progressive tech remix of Android Cartel on Chloe Harris' Further Records that turned heads. Keeping pace with the flow Matt churns out a huge early-morning psychedelic burner built upon mangled resonant drums, twisted percussion and chopped vocals in perfect syncopation.
These days the Sean Palm studio is a firehouse of creative energy. Still riding high from his first full length album Day On End, Sean returned with classic trance sounds of the Fundamentals EP and garnered huge reviews from likes of Danny Tenaglia, Timo Maas, John Digweed, James Zabiela and Peter Kruder to name a few. On this remix Sean presents a clean and fresh percussive soundscape encapsulated by huge space-pad influences reminiscent of Oliver Lieb's late 90's LSG project.
