    It is that time of the year again, everyone is preparing for some sunshine and great new music and we are proud to present you the first part of this year's Artefact's WMC sampler, consisting of 6 tracks with styles ranging from classic house sound to the more subtile deep and tech sounds with some flavors of disco and funk in between as our mission statement says we believe in artistic freedom, never limited to one genre, always reflecting the current movements of the clubbing scene while praising the roots & origins of today's electronic music.
    We have four producers included on the first part of the sampler that are brand new additions to our artists roster and two well established producers that have already released some material for our label, Angel Rize and X Twins.
    To start things of we have “Rize Up” a t rack by Angel Rize and his original production style using a great groove along beautiful melodies, piano sounds and strings mixed with female vocal to deliver a great sounding classic house feel.
    Next is Dean Mickoski, Macedonian born living in USA first time on Artefact, with his track “Dreamless” that has a great vibe, beautiful deep driving melody and piano sounds and all incorporated with sporadic male vocal to form a package that reminds us on some great times for the house music not so long ago.
  Next is JayCeel, a Danish born producer with great potential that has brought to Artefact his disco flavored sound very simple but very powerful and ready for the dance floor with his track “Back To Disco”.
   The fourth track on this sampler is a remix done by the bulgarian producer Artone who has few of his works on our label, and this time he has done his remix work on a track called “Waterfall” from the bulgarian band Nova Generacia, the track has his very well know signature of deep melodies and beautiful bass line mixed with the great female vocal to get a sound that reminds us of the sexy sounding productions of the very well know label Naked music.
   Fifth track “It Never Stops” is from yet another first appearance on our label Soul Equation, a producer that is yet to show his talent, with his great production skills across few very different styles of music, but this time he is exploring the deep and funky sounds, with clever use of piano sounds as well as guitar sample and spiced with some strings all packaged with driving bass line.
   Last but not least is our friend from Montenegro X Twins, with his “Innovators” one of his best works so far, very modern sound with unbelievably powerful bass line along with liquid melody that puts you in a great mood, deep sound filled with so much soul and at titude, a track for a dance floor as well as the comfort of your home.

Preview of the forthcoming EP "Lost Circus" by James Silk on Artefact Records

James Silk - Lost Circus EP  [arte017]
1.Friend Of Mine
2.Hazy Dayz
3.Trail To Buda

Liverpool born James Silk, is the newest addition to the Artefact records artist roster.
Relatively new producer on the House scene, James is far from inexperienced when it comes to music. Already released tracks for Open Bar Music, She/It Records, Cimelde Records and few other labels, debuts on Artefact with the three tracker called “Lost Circus EP” that is set straight for to the dance floor.

Starting with “Friend Of Mine” where James's clever usage of the vocal snippet from Incognito's Still Friend of Mine softly filtering thru the break down, and the mix with a deep bass line and modern tech sounds, shows his ability to connect the old with the modern in a great balance.

Hazy Dayz carries a lighter bounce with the funky influenced bass line, along with a creamy funky soulful vocal riding on a chunky rolling grooves, and a sweet disco riff filtering thru the grooves, a minimalistic approach with a great vibe.

Rounding off this flawless package, James takes us on a Trail To Buda, with the deep and crisp bass line and old school male vocal sublimed with an old school melody and an eastern male vocal that gives the atmospheric feel to the whole groove and right in the middle a rolling piano takes the whole track to a different level, whilst the vibe stays intact and delivers a joyfully emotional ride.

Fusing old school sounds with current dancefloor sensibilities James Silk is a new name that we are proud to have onboard at Artefact Records and a name that we are sure you will be hearing a lot more in the near future.
