Casual Encounters & Honom – Robo Funk EPPosted: November 18, 2011
The best thing that can happen to me, is when i wake up in the morning and after checking out the new releases i instantly find good music to blog. This post is an example of this situation. This new Casual Encouters & Honom EP is exactly what i needed, before weekend!
Actually i have been following these guys for a while. I believe i’m not the only one! They have been spreading a lot of love in the last couple of months. They have been offering a lot of nice edits and remixes. This time we have an entire EP with gorgeous positive vibes. I just listened to the first track and i had to write this post…..
From the Boston, Casual Encounters is formed by Shaun Mac and Chas Bronz since 2010. Their music is mainly Funk, House and Nu Disco dedicated to the 70’s and 80’s revival resulting in some kind of recycled music made directly to the dance floor, but also to lazy days and chill moments. Besides these two, Honom also gave a hand on this fabulous EP. I mean, we have excellent material to listen and re-listen. There is a lot to tell about this release that i feel a bit lost here…
Just in case you didn’t know, Sebastian Uzieblo aka Honom comes from Sweden and he is also a name you can’t forget. He has also been quite active the last few months. He dropped an awesome EP, which is all over the blogosphere. He was the man of the moment for some time. All these ingredients mixed could just make of this EP something really big.
The work is very well balanced and smooth, giving the impression that it could have more tracks or maybe instead of an EP, it could become an album with more 8 or 9tracks… at least! Anyway, it comes with 2 originals and 4 awesome remixes. I don’t have any preference, and i could be a bit tendentious and say my favorite is from the Portuguese Bailearic Funsk!, but let’s face it, this is an excellent release. The other remixes are from unknown producers (at least for me) Silver City, In2Deep, phunktastike and Berlitz. All these new artists are going to stay under my “radar”. It’s really a pleasure to write about this great EP.
Unfortunately, you can only buy this release on November 25th on Juno. In the meanwhile you can visit all these new artists and check what they have been doing….♥
