HMWL Premiere: Mollono.Bass – Furaha Ya Kucheza (Monkey Safari Remix)

The bittersweet essence of melancholia which Gorge extracts from The Story of the Sad Clown floods our dancing bodies with an organic intensity that is as compelling as the embryonic warmth of some carefully locked-away painkiller. Monkey Safari engage with the sounds and samples of Furaha Ya Kucheza in a playful and slightly inebriated mood, using euphoric rhythms and a full-bodied bassline to transform them into the counterpart of that first day in spring when just a t-shirt is enough, Timo Maas strips down Flamingobuletten to those elements that make Techno so good and right. As a result, the scene veteran serves us a hard, intoxicating, excessive and sweaty dancefloor delight with subtle notes of trippy hum.

Premiere: Matthias Meyer – Touch Of Magic [Strangely Enough]

Release date: Jan.28/22

Berlin-based electronic icon Matthias Meyer returns with the second release on his Strangely Enough label, the sumptuous two track EP, ’The Choir’ and it’s a pleasure to welcome him to Getting Deeper with today’s special 80s inspired glitchy uplifter – a premiere of Touch of Magic.

Strangely Enough

Getting Deeper

Following Matthias Meyer’s hugely acclaimed ‘Sweet Ease’ / ‘Hybrid Society’ collaboration with Budakid on Watergate Records which reached No.1 on Beatport Indie Dance and was accompanied by Matthias Meyer touring worldwide, ’The Choir’ EP showcases the Berlin-based artist’s trademark diverse and eclectic sound, whilst brimming full of emotion and energy.

The deep and stirring title track ’The Choir’ is a highly original and mesmeric opener whose centrepiece is a euphoric, yet poignant church choir refrain which shimmers and pulsates throughout, beautifully deployed alongside the tougher edged beats which drive the hypnotic cut. This truly remarkable track is certain to become a highlight of DJ sets over the coming months, whether played at a beach party in Mexico, or in a stadium arena concert.

’Touch Of Magic’ complements ‘The Choir’ perfectly, as ‘80s inspired synths and glitchy beats move up a tempo, whilst the choral elements are softened alongside addictive stabbing percussion and sparkling, cascading chords.

Meyer’s debut label release, ‘Strangely Enough’, was released in Spring 2021 and included support from RÜFÜS DU SOL, Solomun, Sasha, Adriatique, Rampa, and James Grant, amongst others.

Gabriel Ananda & Michael Walken – Peace Agreement

Hello Soulful Techno lovers I am UK based artist Michael Walken.

I first started getting into the minimal techno and electro from places like Germany properly around 2004/2005 I believe, Gabriel Ananda was incidentally one of the very first artists I remember really loving the sound of. I believe Ihre Personliche Glucksmelodie was one of the first I heard. I had been moving through genres of dance music since being around 11 after hearing The Prodigy. But when I first heard Gabriel and this blend of minimalist techno and electro I immediately loved the playful hooks and upbeat melodies and electronic sounds. The techno I had heard before was mainly through big bands such as Underworld and The Prodigy but really got excited by this fresh upbeat melodic european sound.

So getting speaking to Gabriel last year, being one of my favourite and first techno artists I heard was very exciting. Gabriel liked the first track I sent, which spurred me on too make more. Firstly I had a middle eastern riff that I jammed which went on to be Peace In The Middle East. Definitely my finest solo work to date. I am no Bob Dylan but I always loved the protest song so Peace In The Middle East really just became a subtle protest song I suppose. I think it has drama and beauty, and the silence and undisturbed music that peace can bring in the interlude in the main breakdown.

The second track Peace Agreement leads on from Peace In The Middle East. Imagining there has been a long standing Peace Agreement which sticks. I was lucky enough and completely bowled over when Gabriel said he would collaborate on this track. I have had some great feedback in the past from some big names such as Hernan Cattaneo, SLAM, Orbital, BIllie Ray Martin but being able too actually throw ideas round and collaborate on the same track as someone of Gabriels calibre and a favourite artist of mine was a dream come true! This led to it being much deeper and warmer in its ambience with a much better structure and a track I will be immensely proud of.

Lastly I already had a very dreamy electronica folky track that I remixed for a friend J.Perkins which Gabriel liked the vibe of immediately. And in corona times I think some warm optimism like this would be welcome. I think it leads on nicely on the ep, starting with drama imagining peace and by the end in a warm daydream in an almost perfect world.

Thanks Gabriel and Soulful Techno for giving me the chance to showcase myself. I hope people enjoy!
