Baaz – Two (For You) [OFFICE011]

Baaz from Berlin gives us further insight into his diverse musical interests with his ‘Two (For You)’ EP on Office. As the title suggests the talented producer splits his musical activity into two genres on this record: One is deep and moody Techno with a knack for strong sub bass and soft pads. And the other one is striking Ambient with a wonderful appreciation of moving melodies and mellow chords combined with touching vocal parts. What is remarkable how well these four carefully building tracks go together and how effortless they further underline Baaz’ artistic vision of reduced and understated electronic music which unfolds slowly but emphatically. A respectable new record which is well worth opening yourself to.

Baaz – What About Talk About #2 [OFFICE002]

https://i0.wp.com/imagescdn.juno.co.uk/300/CS474892-01A-MED.jpg

The second part of the “What About Talk About” series by Baaz starts with “Owl’s Night”. A deep house tool with a vigorous bassline, some classic 909 elements, weird vocals and a pumpin’ piano chord. “Those Things” the second Track on the A, infects you with positive vibrations and the magic mood. The B side enters with a remix by the highly skilled producer Michel Bauman under his moniker Soulphiction. He turned the track called K.M.S. into an emotional and strong kicking house tune. The Original is produced by Iron Curtis & Baaz . 90 Bpm, a dippy pipe organ, wooden beats and shaky percussions. The last track ”Whatabouttalkabout” is a lush experimental listening slice, prober for the dark and chilly winterdays.

Bazz – What About Talk About #1 [OFFICE001]

The debut release on Office Recordings is the first part of a series produced by label founder Baaz. “In My Mind” is a subtle, shiny piece of jazzyfied house music with a steady rolling groove and dirty kickdrum. “Glim” bangs the box with deep dubs and a sexy vigorous groove. The flip starts with two mind-bending downbeat cuts with a stumbling beat. Last but not least a slowburning remix of “Way Out Citti” by Matthias Reiling (Session Victim, Giegling Recordings) and Björn Astrup who did a brilliant job twisting the original into a soulful homage to the slow side of house
music.

On side A, Steffi, the Panoramabar resident, is uniting forces with Baaz and delivers a perfect balance between the old and the new, the rough and the clean, at home or at the club. Completing side A is Ivel Tax, a 22 years old producer from Romania. He makes steady grooves that are bound to shake any dancefloor. Side B is welcoming the dutch masters,  Dimi Angelis & Jeroen Search, to the Soulrock label. For this trippy track they plunge into the deep blue sea of dreamy chords and mesmerizing percussion, creating a mood that will set even the most grounded listener adrift. Duijn & Douglas provide a sensual deep house track, the perfect closing for this warm EP.

Baaz – Woodland Drive EP [SAEP024]

Baaz comes back home at Sthlmaudio Recordings for a rich and surprise full new EP called Woodland Drive. The 12 inches start right off with Sink, a very Baaz styled house track which is dance appealing and yet refined and subtle. A raw bassy groove monster track. The next one might surprise the Baaz fans out there, yes it’s a Hip-Hop track featuring the soul vocals of Katrina Marie. We figured out that it might be fresh to provide some other point of view in the repeating herself dance scene. The B side strikes hard on the House side again, It s Gone is one of those pure shining and rolling tracks. Once to you uplift it you’d just let it go. A bass heavy subtle and groovy house cut, Baaz trademark?! Essential. And again the B2 and closing track is an lush and low key hip-hop science out of Baaz most retired places.
