Darko Milosevic & Darre - Dirty Symphony

     Darko Milosevic along with Darre are the next two Montenegrin producers that are signed to our label and bring us the 21st release, with their first track Dirty Symphony which was featured on our Miami WMC sampler and received very good feedback, a very powerful tech funky track, a mixture of a funky melody and a tech drive reinforced with a powerfull bass line aiming for that peak time on the dancefloor. 
    To make this release complete we asked our inhouse producer Freaky Funk to do a remix with his signature sound and he did just that and gave the track a new techier twist and prepared it for those late night parties. 
   Along those two tracks we have included two bonus tracks produced by Darko Milosevic, in which he shows a clever use of piano and trumpet samples, and gives the tracks a great deep feel and puts them into the more mature deep sound, but still maintains the funky vibe thru out the tracks.
     A great package for those summer late night beach parties.

Dean Mickoski - Dreamless

Dean Mickoski, Macedonian born living in USA debuts on Artefact, with his release called Dreamless including his original mix 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. To make this package complete we have included three remixes by Ramorae, LdM and F.North. LdM's remix is on the more deep relaxing chill sound side with a bit of dubtribe soundsystem feel in it and Ramorae's remix is more energetic tech house sound with a great beat as well as F. North's techier take on the original.

This is the second part of this year's WMC sampler, 6 tracker with tracks from four new artists signed to our label and two from our inhouse producers Freaky Funk and Me.N.U. Styles ranging from deep funky house to a bit of jackin and tech house sounds. 
We start the second part of the sampler with a track from very talented Slovenian producer Alexserra, called Freak Out, rolling bassline, beautiful female voice incorporated with a great beat, just enough to make you move on the dance floor and freak you out in the positive way of course... 
Second is another track from slovenian producers, the duo called Chulliano Lexias, great deep drive, with beautiful melodies and deep chords, with a funky sounding guitar riffs, laid over with a female vocal and a chunky bass line to give that deepness a beautiful drive called Chikas. 
Next is Dirty Symphony a track produced by two Montenegrin artists Darko Milosevic and Darre, powerful tech funky track, a mixture of a funky melody and a tech drive reinforced with a powerfull bass line aiming for that peak time on the dancefloor. 
The fourth track comes from our inhouse artist and one of the most successful ones on our label the Montenegrin Freaky Funk, who is still burning the dancefloors with his previous ep, but now he treats us with Goes Like This jackin hip housing funky sound that has become his trademark, male sporadic rap, funky flute, deep pulsating bass line and great chords that will not let you stay still. 
Next is another inhouse producer this time the Macedonian Me.N.U with his take on a great disco classic, mixing parts of the accapella with some innovative use of sampling, guitar riffs, live female vocals, My Bitches Take Me Higher a great sounding disco house track packed with energy. 
And to close this project comes a new name for Artefact a duo made of Macedonian producer and a DJ and an British female radio DJ for which we think you will hear more in the near future, the track is called Let Us All Unite, starting with an undeground feel, pulsating bass line, driving beat mixed with a powerfull accapella and occasional deep underground chords and a funky guitar riff that somewhere in the middle, right after the breakdown with the use of a live recorded female vocal the track progresses in a very club oriented sound with uplifting feel but still maintaining the underground touch.
