  • Description India's Wind Horse Records peers southward to Australia for the discovery of Melbourne-based duo Mink, made up of Matthew Doyle and Kostas Andreadis. The two have released music individually but it's their collaboration as Mink, begun in 2006, that has gotten the global house music scene to pay attention. Mink's track "The Deep Era" reached all the way to New Delhi where Vipul heard it and its Funkform Remix, snatching them up for Wind Horse Records. For the label's fourteenth release, Mink, in fact, will be the first non-Indian artist to have a full single on Wind Horse, representing the start of a new chapter in the Wind Horse story.
    "The Deep Era" fits keenly into the Wind Horse Records discography with its sweeping, panoramic house music sound. Mink has crafted a sublime, groovy track with an understated, hypnotic rhythm driven by a slinky and warm bass line. Emotive strings and bright, pulsating chords creatively add to the track's musical weight. The highlight of "The Deep Era" is its extended breakdown, eschewing the beats in favor of layers of yearning synth pads, atmospheric sounds, and a mysterious, methodical voice. As the bass and beats slowly crawl back into the mix a blissful synergy is reached, and the dance floor is sure to respond.
    FunkForm also resides in Australia, in the "tropical paradise" of Cairns, to be exact. This project, led by one Maddy Hughes, specializes in sophisticated, deep, tech-influenced house music and has become an integral part of Cairns house label Open Records. The FunkForm Remix of "The Deep Era" compliments the original beautifully, approaching a dreamy 'lost in space' vibe that should resonate within more expressive DJ sets. There's more accent on the rhythm here, as a lonely, almost Blade Runner-esque synth line plays the melody while rich pads echo about the stereo field. It's a fine accomplishment from FunkForm, indeed.Look for more exciting things to come as Wind Horse takes flight in 2012, adding more international artists to the roster as well as expanding the efforts of its founders Hamza and Vipul.
