Dekmantel Selectors is an intimate festival, limited to a capacity of 2000, to keep the vibe pure throughout the whole week and this can be seen once you get to the bay from The Garden, next to the small fishing village of Tisno.

Gaussian Curve – The Distance [MFM018]

New LP from Gigi Masin, Jonny Nash and Young Marco. Although their methodology remained the same, the inspirations were different. Whereas Clouds was intimate by design, The Distance reflects more on spaciousness, distance and time. It is instantly recognizable as a Gaussian Curve record, but feels different in scope and tone.

VA – Welcome To Paradise: Italian Dream House 89-93 Vol.1 [ST003-2]

Safe Trip releases Welcome To Paradise, an expansive retrospective of the Italian dream house sound co-compiled by label founder Young Marco. At the tail end of the 1980s, a new take on deep house began to emerge from Italian studios. ‘Dream house’ drew inspiration from key U.S deep house records of the period – the spacey melodiousness of Larry Heard’s productions, and the rich jazziness of tracks originating in New Jersey in particular – but sounded distinctly different. Its’ ‘head-in-the-clouds’ feel – all rich chords, tactile basslines, fluid piano lines and starry electronics – made ‘dream house’ a uniquely Italian proposition.

Michael Ozone – Perfect Systems Remixed [ESP006B]

Michael Ozone, the character who’s just dropped his debut offering for the ESP Institute this July, is back with a remixed version of his jungle-tuff “Perfect Systems” EP. On Side A, Steve Summers has taken Perfect Systems for an imperfect ride, jacking it up as expected while keeping the somewhat sinister mood of the original. On the flip, Young Marco strips down Hetrotopia to its core, letting you realize how a well-programmed track can maintain its melodic and hypnotic sense, even when all that’s left is percussion.
