Los Angeles based label Sol Selectas had a stellar year in 2016 being one of Beatport’s Top 10 best selling deep house labels, with its consistent deep tribal output. The chart topping label continues here with release number 48, another sure fire hit on the impressive imprints catalogue.
The ‘Hidden Oasis’ EP coming from the land of Oz, is the result of a series of collaborations between Uone and Western in Sydney. These two grooving deep tech house jams are inspired by primitive sounds, but maintain a modern feeling with layerings of instrumentation juxtaposed with sizzling synths. By recording real percussion and capturing raw takes of late night analogue jams, the duo capture a unique electronic sound while maintaining an organic vibe.
Fellow Australian, and co-owner of Multi Culti Records, Dreems, delivers a psychedelic pitched down interpretation of ‘Tribal Paradise’. The infectious bubbling baseline carries the listener on a wild ride thru the dusty bush, fueled by analogue distortion and percussive madness.
Jonas Saalbach from Berlin, takes us further into the oasis delivering a beautiful uplifting remix of ‘Gold Sacks River’. Swirling arpeggios and lush pads expand and build over the hand clap beat climaxing into a deep acid groove. The artwork by Helia Jamali draws us a visual map of the music, guiding us to the elusive ‘Hidden Oasis’, a desert destination that can only be discovered after journeying down the ‘Gold Sacks River’ and arriving at the secret ‘Tribal Paradise’.
