One year of Envloop Records: A reason to celebrate for us, but also an opportunity to thank you, our audience. Since Envloop began, we have come a long way, having built up the label as a haven for artists from around the globe and for electronic tunes from all different styles and genres. Artists such as TC Izlam, Soul Slinger, I-Cue, Kooky, Frozen Smoke, just to name a few… Envloop stays true to it’s basic concept to be open not only to top artists, but also to encourage musical experiments. The 2000’s, so we were told, would only leave space for labels strictly specialized in their specific genres. We chose a different path: Tracks and artists from across the spectrum of genres, just as it was when electronic music imprints first started. The only standard across the label’s releases is the high quality.
A trip through time and space: In 1996 US-Drum&Bass legend Soul Slinger together with Supa MC TC Izlam (aka T-Frequency To The Love Degree) released “Zulu Music Pt.1 and 2” on his legendary label “Jungle Sky Records”, having been a platform for so many artists who made their ways into the world´s artist-elite such as A Guy Called Gerald, Afrika Bambaataa, DJ Spooky and Air Liquide, just to name a few. On envloop 005 “Zulu Music 2011 EP” this true jewel of New Yorican Underground found it´s way into the present decade, given a treatment by it´s creator Soul Slinger and Austrian artist Hillberg. What had been anticipating “Dubstep” decades before this genre was born, now comes along as a trippy Hip Hop tune reminiscent of the sound of Stereo MC´s or Gary Clail.
Struboskop feat. Violetta Parisini: Dont Stop Robot EP genre: electrohouse | electrobreaks | drum&bass “Don´t Stop, Robot!” is a groovy, catchy Italo-Discohouse/Synthpop tune. The warm jazzy vocal bring this hypnotic tune up to epic heights, and soon you’ll be singing “Don´t Stop, Robot! Just sayin´ yes and no and yes and…”. Track two, “Roboskop” furthers the Italo feeling on your turntable, getting you “pazzo” over it, as does track three, “Roboterotic”. Alberto Terzi´s Clubmix of “Don’t Stop, Robot” is a superb re-interpretation of the original. It´s Italo Synthpop grooves will have you doing “the robot” in no time. Why we are so sure about it? Well, because it’s worked like this on dancefloors from Shanghai to Vienna where the tune has already been tried and tested. On all those dancefloors, it didn’t take a minute to turn the “dance”floors into “Robot”floors…
Der Cube: Analogue Activity E.P. genre: electrohouse | electrobreaks Analogue Activity by the Austrian producer Der Cube is a hypnotic Electro tune, starting off mean and moody, winding up to a unique and epic sound-experience. With it’s addictive groove, the tune finds its way to a winding distorted piano melody, which will hook you further into it – either on the dancefloor or through your headphones. New York artist I-Cue adds an “old school-breaky” Electrobreaks mix. Bremen based producer Rauschhaus completes it with a massive Electrohouse mix making it impossible to stand still. Liverpool based artists Kooky and Frozen Smoke contribute two “in your face” UK-Style Electrohouse mixes, getting it to the real thing.
Hillberg: MetaAmphetaMine E.P. genre: electrohouse | electrobreaks | drum&bass | dubstep MetaAmphetaMine, Envloop Records release 002, is a massive indie-club tunes release, again following Envloop’s philosophy to present a wide range of electronic music styles to the audience. The Original is a hypnotic ElectroHouse/ElectroPop tune, as addictive through headphones as it is on the dancefloor. The range of remixes goes from Mightiness´ massive Drum&Bass Remix over to DJ Odyssey’s Retro-Old School NYC-Breaks Rework, bringing back the early 1990’s, when House and ElectroBreaks in the style of Afrika Bambaattaa ruled the streets of New York.
Mightiness: extraprotected genre: drum&bass | electrohouse | electrobreaks | dubstep So here is, how envloop records say their first “hello!” to the world: “Extraprotected” is a boosting and rocking d&b tune by Bremen, Germany based artist Mightiness aka Ralph Klenke. Fresh and juicy, this tune is meant to rock dancefloors around the globe. But envloop wouldn´t be envloop, if this tune hadn´t undergone some reworks by various artists from around the world, amongst them electronic music-pioneers as NYC based DJ I-Cue, well known as Hipstep-pioneer and one of the most reputed artists of Zulu Nation NYC and Jungle Sky Rec.
