DescriptionCucumbers, the Russian duo, are in-charge of our eighth reference. Unquestionably, they are going in a revolutionary direction where soul and electronic music join together. Already with a bunch of dance-floor killers edited in different and distinctive imprints, Cucumbers is a name that you will be hearing more often.
They bring us "Keep It Down", a unique blend of Soul and Deep House. The recipe comes with two additional remixes from, Toucan, haling from Brazil and a very special debut for the Vicey camp, The Switchers.
The original cut, Keep It Down, is a priceless brooch in the Vicey catalog. The true sound of Soul synchronized in perfect harmony with percussive elements, synths and entrancing vocals. All perfectly balanced in the right groove, flowing into an ideal progression of a fresh tune; making it a masterpiece.
Olliver Mach and Bernardo Campos are Toucan. Born, raised and based in Sao Paulo, Brazil, these guys are definitely a constant reference for great tracks. Without doubt all their releases have their own Toucan touch and this remix is a clear example of what we're talking about. Monster bass track, full of groove and intensity are the ingredients for this Toucan mix. Expressing their own unique type of Nu-Disco, combined with the right amount of Deep House to keep it bouncing.
The Switchers is the moniker for, label boss, Alberto Santizzo and Mickey Franco, both born in Guatemala and both with a multi-cultural twist. The duo are Central America's best representatives in the scene, having become regulars in the area's most renowned festivals. These guys are the perfect example of what Central America can deliver in Advanced-House Music. The Switchers have been playing music together since roughly 8 years ago. It's no coincidence that these two brains started putting beats together in the studio. Dynamic arrangements, wicked drumming and original vocal-arrangements create a very harmonic remix.
B-side "The Music" is another representation from Cucumbers, delivering that exquisite fusion between melodic synth strings, banging percussions and a new set of vocals. This tune is perfect for closing any kind of set in any kind of moment.
