Meanwhile, the Nice & Smoove mix provides a deeper, headier cut bolstering a hypnotic groove and textured sound design capable of enveloping listeners from all angles. His ability to concoct pounding, infectious grooves is on full display with ‘Feel It / Circus Act,’ which finds him harkening back to ‘90s tradition of latching on a variety of mixes and VIPs onto a record. For good measure, there are two extra versions of “Circus Act” tossed into the rotation with the SP Retool Remix and ReRemix (yes, you read that right). Built around his extensive knowledge as a selector and his unmatched expertise in the studio, Stacey Pullen’s ‘Feel It / Circus Act’ is available everywhere via Factory 93 Records. They are, again, strong rollers designed for peak hours and are sure to move more than a few feet in the club. “The adlib vocal is fueled by a driven bassline and the bassline fuels the track with excitement and energy.”

“Circus Act” takes the framework of classic, loop-based house and furthers it with all of Stacey’s sonic trademarks. Follow us on socials As a venerated torchbearer of second-wave Detroit techno, the Black Flag label-boss has been crafting sleek and soulful dance music since many of today’s clubbers were merely a twinkle in their parent’s eye. These two reworks function as robust DJ tools that scatter the track’s original elements around seemingly endless layers of percussion. It’s built around squelchy bass, crunchy drums, and a soothing vocal that elegantly contrasts the track’s raw, roughed up tone. Stacey ramps up the energy on the Full Force Mix, employing a beefy bassline that will add finesse to both house and techno sets. On remix duty is the legendary Nic Fanciulli, stacking Stacey’s insistent formula alongside an insatiable bassline. Fanciulli teases the track’s original elements as he leads into a dizzying climax of crispy 909 snares, before dropping back into the track’s muscular beat. 

It doesn’t end there, folks. A relentless sample burrows itself deeper into your eardrums as it pounds along in half bar iterations, resulting in an effective and sophisticated roller perfect for building momentum on the floor. “Feel It” is high tech soul at its finest. “‘Circus Act’ has a disco sample from one of my favorite Italo Disco records from the ‘80s and has always inspired me when I heard it,” explains Pullen. Stacey Pullen

“‘Feel It’ is driven by the sensational vocal snippet of Mighty Real by Sylvester,” says Stacey Pullen. Seasoned veteran Stacey Pullen leverages his rhythmic persuasions on his debut outing with Factory 93 Records, ‘Feel It / Circus Act,’ a seven-track package including a remix from the mighty Nic Fanciulli.

Inaugurating the EP with the mind-bending opener, Voce, Ameli and Paul come together for one of their most absorbing sonic offerings to date, delivering a captivating amalgam of warped, atonal synthesizers, despondent vocal samples and chugging, syncopated bass guitar riffs. Setting a tone for the remainder of the package with organic beats and complex analog effects, the arresting starter is further complemented by a macabre, somewhat sinister music video, created by Stuttgart-based director and filmmaker Harry Delgas. Last but by no means least, capping off their most extensive body of work to date, Ameli Paul hand the reigns to close friends and compatriots, Brigade, for a funked-up, four-to-the-floor finale. Following the critically acclaimed release of their stunning three-part Beyond Reason EP on MEIOSIS back in February, the Berlin-based electronica duo now looks to end 2021 in emphatic fashion, pulling out all the stops with their remarkable new Mycelia EP. Under the veil of darkness words are not important anymore, our feelings will lead the way through doors of deception into a world that’s strangely parallel to the one we accepted as the real one for so long. The Berlin based duo has already made quite the name for themselves with their enchanting live performances and releases. Also based in Berlin, where they developed their unique brand of idiosyncratic electronica, they step up to the plate as only they know how, combining keytars, drum machines and slick riffs to close out the EP in style. But that’s not all. Well. Mycelia are interwoven with forest floors and provide a most subtle form of communication. First up on remix duties, adding his unique double-sided twist to the record, is none other than Italo-American artist Curses. When Ameli and Paul’s paths crossed in 2016, they immediately felt the urge to fuse their approaches of making music – the succinct and intricate productions of Paul, with Ameli’s sentimental voice and inherent songlike musicality. Constantly honing and evolving their live performance and studio output ever since, the duo now stands for a stirring electronic sound that ranges from abstract cinematic excursions all the way through to more pop-leaning song structures. Ebbing and flowing with deliberate juxtaposed intention, the package is then brought into another abstract, almost soporific state with Pilze, before Ameli Paul conclude their creative contribution with the spell-binding, ethereal ending, That’s The Problem. “Unbeknown to human eyes, it slowly spreads and spans across the soil. Featuring a satanic set of cameos from Ameli and Paul, inspired cinematography from Dan Trautwein and mind-altering art direction from set designer Angelina Häuser, you can check out the trippy four-minute audio-visual representation in its entirety here. Honestly we don’t know any more than you. Just like the universe, their catalogue and ours alike (and maybe soon even your vinyl collection) expands with Mycelia.”  – Drosssel

Ameli Paul – Mycelia EP (including remixes from Curses and Brigade) is out now via Drosssel. Released via Drosssel, the seven-track opus features four brand new original productions from the in-form duo, together with a dark, trippy music video and a selection of remixes from two Berlin-based outfits – Curses and Brigade. Entering an altogether different dimension with the second original, Dry Cough, Ameli Paul’s sophomore offering on the package pulsates with a more affirmative midnight disco energy, as throbbing basslines, stripped-back percussion and retro synth-lines come together in perfect accord, to bring the listener into a more lucid realm of consciousness. But what’s definitely real is the feels we get from this beautiful collage of sounds, carefully crafted to perfection by Ameli Paul. Well guarded from sunlight it grows inside until it comes to fruition in its whole glory.

Arriving with much anticipation on December 3, LUCID THEORY is the debut album from fast-rising Namibian electronic music producer, DJ and creative GINA JEANZ, which comes on the back of her releasing three EPs in the last two years that have garnered rave reviews and critical acclaim from the likes of BBC 1Xtra, Glamour, Red Bull Music, Soulection, Resident Advisor, GQ South Africa and Afropunk. Whether it’s future bass or deep house, progressive R&B or alternative soul, UK garage or funky house, the wide-ranging sonic soundscapes on Lucid Theory not only take listeners on an immersive musical journey, but they also showcase the immense talent and creative prowess of Gina Jeanz, who produced and composed all the songs on the album. It’s really the kind of space where I can just be my true authentic self without thinking about it. Born and raised in Namibia, and now based in South Africa, Gina Jeanz has established that she is more than capable of rising to the occasion. Follow us on socials However, this has been threatened by my inner saboteur, fuelled by the many ideas people had for my career, and it was discouraging that this led me to question who I wanted to be in music. Lucid Theory sees Gina Jeanz delivering an electronic music masterclass for listeners to get lost in, with a stellar supporting cast of African vocalists such as Sio, MOONGA K., Brad Knight, Jordan Baker and AliThatDude. Being able to produce my own music during this period of uncertainty brought me so much healing. Counting the likes of Wonderland, Notion, GQ, Glamour, BBC 1Xtra and Soulection as fans, Gina Jeanz is not only flying the flag for electronic music in Africa, but she is also one of the few women producers across the African music scene – the fact of which drives her passion to uplift and empower more women in the industry. I felt that I wasn’t paying attention to the signs, but with everything that happened, there was a lesson and each lesson forced me to understand my purpose clearly. Thematically, the album sees Gina and her co-stars channeling and unpacking their emotions through these songs, from the anxiety she experienced before creating the album on ‘Overstimulated’, ‘Sun Spot’, which speaks to tumultuousness in relationships, and getting lost in the moment with ‘After Hours’, to feelings of unrequited love on ‘All Of Me’, being willing to commit to love on ‘Can’t Pretend’, and the album’s final track ‘100ml’, which was inspired by Gina being able to get through her days without anxiety attacks and finding joy in creating again. She collaborated with Red Bull on their ‘Made In 72 Hours’ project last summer, before ending 2020 with two EPs of her own, ‘Rhythm Chronicles’ and ‘Motion’. In that time, the producer, DJ and composer produced and recorded her debut album Lucid Theory, which arrives on December 3. Revered for her skills on the decks as well as her production and music-making dexterities, Gina has also captivated audiences the world over with her DJ sets, from Afropunk Festival to Boiler Room to Red Bull Music Festival, just to mention a few. This is my story, this is my healing, this is my theory”. I had been fighting my own battles, particularly after the passing of my mother in 2017, and I was severely anxious and could barely create music without running into creative blocks and worse, doubting my ability to bring my ideas to life. For the first time in a long time, with this album, I knew if I truly wanted to enjoy making music again, I had to freely and fearlessly just do it. While she and the rest of the world retreated into lockdown during the pandemic, Gina also took that time to apply herself more creatively as well. Speaking about the inspiration behind her Lucid Theory album, Gina says, “There were series of events that led me to create this album and set the foundation for the entire project. Her new album is backed by lead singles ‘Sun Spot’, ‘We Move’ and ‘Dopamine’, which have garnered support from Wonderland, Notion, Earmilk and Rolling Stone India, among others.

Stereoclip reflects on ten years as a producer with third artist album: “Echoes”!

This album is inspired by ten years of failures and successes. And in this case, ten examples of excellent music too. But with a decade of ups, down and musical reverie also comes reflection and inner conversation, of deconstructing past events and accepting the blur and general chaos between the past and the present. Looking within has ever been vital to becoming a better version of one’s self, and that’s exactly where his third album comes in. Stereoclip

More so than merely sending out sounds in hopes of call and response, the concept of ‘Echoes’ is about soaking up the feedback to use as new input for the ever-evolving cycle. It’s full of nostalgia, hope and honesty.”

Follow us on socials And it is within that cycle where personal growth can be found. “With this album, I wanted to push myself beyond my own limits and wanted my music to be a better version of itself. With singles such as ‘Moonlight Drive’, ‘Sunset Drive’ and ‘Inner City Angels’ taking a leading role, the ten-track album mirrors the drive to look beyond the limits, all the while demonstrating the impeccable inter-song synergy the world has come to expect from every Stereoclip product. Colored by nostalgia, hope and honesty, ‘Echoes’ reflects on ten years of frustration and joy, headaches and abandonment, accomplishments and determination, love and hate, and travels and encounters. “It’s been ten years since the Stereoclip project started, and I felt it was time to reflect on some of the choices I made, both good and wrong”, Stereoclip says. Ten years have passed since Belgium’s Maxime Merkpoel launched his Stereoclip project and started turning heads within the dance music space.

Giuseppe Ottaviani is delivering a massive trance hybrid “The Wind In Your Face”!

Hovering inside a stylistic connection, the track plays with trance, progressive and techno themes, never though tipping its balance fully one way or the other.Elaborate in production, it has a wide-open-space feel to it, which – going into 2022 – is precisely where Ottaviani wants to be. Whilst still speaking in the most powerful of production manners, it sees him cool the 138 pace and click over into the solo & instrumental space. Giuseppe Ottaviani

Backed by a raft of ear-catching FX, attention-to-production-detail and astute studio sleight of hand, he hooks ‘The Wind In Your Face’ around one elemental, yet devastating effective superstring. Having just last month notched a new vocal high with his and Monika Santucci’s heart-stealing ‘With You’, the Italian now expands that envelope again with another stylistically-open-world single. Change is in ‘The Wind’ for Giuseppe; the track touches down on streaming and sales sites this week ( Follow us on socials We ask in all seriousness, is there any producer in the trance realm as all-out dependable as Giuseppe Ottaviani!!?

Sunnery James & Ryan Marciano are the archetypal mainstays of the dance music scene. Sunnery James & Ryan Marciano have recently been getting a lot of plaudits for giving talent a chance via their ‘The Tribe’ compilation series, and that recognition only motivated the Dutchmen to do more for the next generation of dance music.
