This is the second single Hovelmann has released on 19BOX RECORDINGS. ‘Paradise’ is the follow-up to ‘In House We Trance’ and is a pumping piano anthem akin to early 1990s Italian house productions. Despite this, it’s not handbag house or rave-y. The whirling and driving timbres will surely have devas-tating effects on the dancefloor. Not content with just one Swedish mastermind, we have managed to call in another one of our favourite Scandinavians Bjorn Fogelberg on remix duties.
Hailing from Argentina, Julio Largente lays down four excellent ambient/chillout tracks for us on this EP. Fans of the label will already know him from already appearing on 19BOX RECORDINGS as a remixer and on PARK LIMITED MUZIK as a collaborator with DJ 19 using The Loony Tunes guise. First up is ‘Angel Holds’; which is a beautiful work of ambience that draws comparisons to the sounds Mike Oldfield during his ‘Tubular Bells’ and “The Exorcist” period. On remix duties of ‘Angel Holds’ is Dartek - a solo project of Mauricio Daniel Maranghello. Meanwhile, Julio has delivered several other tracks to round out this EP. They all lie within the realms of the deep and dark, whilst focusing on emotional melodies. While different to his usual style, the sounds are still definitely cutting edge electronica that gives you an idea of his wide ranging berth of musical capabilities and form.
