Wind Horse Records has made the names of its main producers, Hamza, Vipul, and Vinayak^A, internationally known through a high quality series of releases beloved by DJs worldwide. The label has exposed a house music scene in India that was not known to most, showing it to be vibrant and expressive, and capable of deep, flowing musical works.
As the house music movement in India grows, talented new producers are emerging and Wind Horse Records is pleased to showcase this newest crop with the compilation EP New Breed Sampler. All of the artists on this compilation are making their Wind Horse Records debut, with four of them revealing their very first tracks on New Breed Sampler. The sound throughout fits right in with the Wind Horse roster, as lush deep house anchored by tight rhythms, warm bass, and exotic elements typify all five tracks. The veteran Wind Horse artists interacted with the 'Nu Breed,' encouraging and giving feedback, with Vipul mixing down a few of the tracks himself. Within the listener will find Soulspace and his "How Long" featuring the expressive vocals of Scott Murray Moses; the driving deep house of "Stolen Love" by Audio Units; the spacious and rolling "Bits and Pieces" by Llewellyn Hil;; the lovely and atmospheric acoustic guitar-led track "Sky Cab" from OMA; and "Tropical Bitch" by Priyesh Patil which does indeed have the crisp, arpeggiated feel of a Balearic house track.
With their impressively mature sound it is hard to believe these artists are the 'New Breed, and it's certain that they will be heard from again on many future Wind Horse releases. Dig in, and discover the rising house music sound of India and Wind Horse Records.
