The One Records crew are immovably positioning themselves at the forefront of their game, with the celebration of the tenth release on the label, which comes as a two part digital series that demonstrates the increasingly thrilling mark that One Records is imprinting on underground house music. The now Berlin based label, driven by Subb-an and Adam Shelton, clearly gets to the point in part one with five solid tracks from Alex Arnout, Jordan Peak, Jef K & Gwen Maze, Julien Sandre and John Dimas.
London based Alex Arnout provides the first track on the compilation and easily sets the standard.
Alexs previous release on the label was nothing short of genius and dominated dance floors around the world with support from the likes of Seth Troxler and Shaun Reeves. His next contribution Move On echoes a similar feel to Vanishing Point, as a solid deep club track that emits smoothness, with a deep rounded bass, underlying atmospheric building keys that rise into a prominent old school string.
The next track comes from Jef K & Gwen Maze who are part of the powerful and unstoppable, French crew. Girl Meets Boy lures you in with deep, warm pads, while the simple but effective vocal drives the track over the solid groove and rolling keys.
You Dont See by John Dimas is the most dance floor driven on the compilation, packed with perfect late night grooves. Key synths create a prominent element to the track that contrast perfectly with the dubby beats.
Jordan Peaks second release on the label, Wisdom of Words will undoubtedly make you move but exposes an effortless, deeper side to Jordans production skills, compared to the straight up dance floor house we have previously seen from the young producer. The chugging base, old Detroit sounding keys, and subtle classic vocal demonstrate solid house at its best.
Julien Sandres Vibrationist steals the ear with a full and rounded bass line groove. The pitched down, deep and echoing vocal creates a dimension in the track that rolls over the synths that
surface as the track develops.
This release fully confirms that One Records mean business, with this seamless selection of enigmatic, sturdy dance floor classics. The label is clearly leaping from strength to strength. Look
out for part two of the release coming very soon.
