Hailing from its mothership label Circus Recordings, Yousef resurfaces his supplementary outlet Carioca Records with a much more musical approach. Unlike Circus, Carioca is designed to be less of a reflection of Yousefs dj sets, but rather opening up a wider musical latitude, offering an opportunity to release more hypnotic house and techno, not always aimed the djs, but instead the music enthusiast.
A new project produced by August Artièr (who's previously recorded as Sydney). He was born in Australia and now lives in Italy. In the last few years he's played the United Kingdom, Italy, USA, Slovenia, Croatia, Brasil, Czech Republic, Australia, Poland, Georgia, Turkey, Spain and Ibiza. He's produced for labels that include King Street, Voltaire, Prison Entertainment, Body Music and Tokyo Red that he runs with label partner Lukez. The duo also present a weekly radio show on Ibiza Global Radio.
August provides us with a multi dexterous three track EP:
'August Sunset'- A heady mix of swirling effects, pulsing synths and a warm melodic analog bass line, this track takes its influence from the likes of AME and Dixon and encompasses the sound of this new artist perfectly. Its music to soundtrack a Berlin sunset a true fusion of techno and house.
'Encantado' - This track mixes a disco inspired drum track with the depth and atmosphere thats present in all of Artier's tracks. The signature analog synths rub shoulders with the Detroit flavoured top line. The result is unique driving slice of electronica
'Montag' - This track explores the straight up dance floor side of August Artier's music. An hypnotic synth line is layered with a fat analog bass line that builds the tension until and twisted lead delivers the killer blow. Its dark, driving music made for dark rooms and basements.
