Apollo Music Group is a new audio venture between Chicago’s Dirty Sole, DJ Heather and Bristol’s Lil’ Mark.
With DJ Heather having mixed multiple compilation CD’s for OM Records along with her seminal Fabric 21 mix CD, Lil’ Mark has released music on Hot Creations and Leftroom and Dirty Sole having music on both Robsoul and Classic Music Company, the label owners have a proven musical pedigree which bleeds into the veins of Apollo Music.
Now on its fourth release, the label presents an EP from Hector Moralez and Katal who have collaborated on the original tracks.
American born Hector Moralez is an international DJ who often jet sets between gigs in Europe and America. He also boasts an impressive back catalogue of releases on Robsoul, Circus Recordings, Hudd Traxx, Lost Records and DJ Sneak‘s label I’m A House Gangster along with a long list of others.
Having recently worked together for a release on the Sanity label, Hector joins forces with Italian producer Katal, who has made a number of solo releases on labels including Mile End Records, Roush, Organic Music and Oblack.
Deep and jacking, this release features three cuts of timeless House music tailor-made for the dancefloor.
The first track titled “Mood” has an infectious groove centred around a twisted vocal loop that’s been tightly sequenced. Energised by a bassline and full of raw funk, the tracks rising pads and spaced out vocals combine to create a unique and dancefloor focused masterpiece.
Finishing off the release are the muffled vocals and tense lead synth of “Nightcrawler.” The darkest of the three track’s it’s understated with a rolling groove filled with a variety of textures, providing the perfect contrast to “Dancing” and “Mood” it’s the cherry that tops off this perfectly crafted EP.
