Alex Dimou makes his second appearance following his remix of Tiger Stripe’s ‘Runaways’ on Get Physical with a fantastically classic sounding EP ‘Sweet Berries’. The Greek-born producer and DJ has been making crowds move in the south scene for quite a while, now his works and influence are starting to spread north.
The title track is a smooth house number with a disco vibe. The heavy bass line drives the track home while it pulls you into the groove. The percussion, while simple, is masterfully executed here – adding to the long list of reason why you’ll be hearing this one often.
“The Pickle” feeds on the same vibe as “Sweet Berries” minus the disco-house but packs a deep and contagious bass line just as well. Just as with the title track, it’s hard to escape the tracks pull to the dance floor with its energetic-yet-mellow vibe.
Simon Baker takes ‘Sweet Berries’ and adds an elegant touch to it before throwing down a kick and a very raw-feeling percussion. He takes the bass line in a new direction, opting for a rolling, thunderous feel rather than heavy stabs.
Fur Coat takes thing even deeper with his remix, adding a distorted synth to accent the eerie tones he creates. A dark piece, which takes the original in a totally new direction.
Lastly, we’ve got a remix from new-comer Janvanvau, who takes the original and piles on even more energy, keeping the vibe while adding a tech-house touch.
This is the guest (source) podcast i did for Cadenza Music,on September 2015. The "source" refers to the music that the artist gets inspired by. You can find the "cycle" podcast (the music that the artist actually plays) also here,in my soundcloud page.
After a very sweet ‚"Sweet Berries EP" released earlier this year, we've called upon rising Greek star Alex Dimou to compose and mix Get Physical's ‚"Tracks Volume 6". Featuring brand-new artwork and comprised of a special 60-minute set created especially for the release -and then cut into 10 DJ-friendly tidbits-, the mix showcases Dimou's ability to go from the deepest of house to darker, dance floor-worthy tech sounds, with enough time to stop by acid and even jazzy territory. It's also the first of Get Physical's "Tracks" compilations to focus on one artist behind the mixing instead of featuring tracks by numerous up-and-comers, giving the single featured artist the chance to communicate ideas more freely through an entire mix.
And boy, has Dimou stepped up to the challenge. The Greek producer says: " Get Physical is a label I have been following since my early days. Their taste in music, their history and their attitude really made my decision to release music with them very easy. I think that the "Tracks 6" project is a great opportunity to show my perspective of music. I wanted to make a mix of cinematic elements, minimal sounds and hypnotic structure. That's why I didn't make each track separately, but instead made a 60-minute project."
From laid-back to epic, morning-epiphany material, this is one musical search that leaves no stone unturned. Perfect to press play and forget about.
