Canadian Carlo Lio 's career has blossomed exponentially every year since his Mindshake debut and he now returns again to Mindshake with his new My Thang EP. His signature style is driven by a relentless, sexy, deep, pulsing, groove, which can be found in his Mindshake productions and for his own Rawthentic Music label. Mindshake continues to deliver on its promise to cultivate the most innovative of artists while providing the world with a first-class experience in contemporary electronic music culture.
>>> Straddling the divide between house and techno, My Thang is a dark and raw, dancefloor destroyer. Saturated with dissonant piano stabs, a propulsive base of kicks and snares, the visceral groove is pushed over the top with the repeating my thang vocal mantra.
>>> Pepitos Groove is dense and hypnotic with sublime layers of echoing soundscapes and vocals. The tracks focus is on constant tension and the interplay of the smoke-filled jazzy counterpoints.
A moody groove tailor made for dark and sweaty environments.
>>> Exclusive Mindshake artist, Colombian DJ and producer Juan Alejandro Usma R aka Sean Random, delivers a stunning rework of My Thang by twisting the vocal sample into a funky new shape and introducing uncompromising massive new build ups and releases. With a slightly more punchy and snappy feel, Seans version is primed for the peak time dancefloor.
>>> Pepitos Groove (Fer BR Remix) (7:28)
Fer BR is the second Spanish artist to join the core ranks of the Mindshake roster next to label boss Paco Osuna himself and delivers the goods on his remix of Pepitos Groove. By adding
some ethnic percussive elements to the originals sound palette, Fer BRs signature sound takes the track in a trippy new direction. Promisingly futuristic and space age, yet grounded by organic detailing, his remix sounds fresh and exciting.
