Dani Casarano & Felipe Valenzuela – You Say Me EP

April 24, 2010 in Singles

This would be fairly me-too shuffly tech-house were it not for the killer organ line on the lead track You Say Me, which is paired with some kiddy-chorus vocals à la Joubert Singers buried quite subtly in the mix, for what ends up as an altogether more soulful-sounding affair than it sounds like it’s going to be at first. The UES Remix is a slightly bumpier/jerkier affair, but while I’m preferring this one rhythmically you lose the organ-and-choir effect, which is a bit of a shame.

And then finally there’s bonus track Tony-Sonny, which is a pleasant if somewhat throwaway little deep/soulful houser with a very prominent classical-sounding piano line and some more nice chorused vox.

Out: This week
About: This is the first release on Casarano & Valenzuela’s own Melisma Label, er, label. Which might actually just be called Melisma Records after all… anyway here’s their MySpace, where you can currently HEAR Tony-Sonny on the player.
Dani Caserano is Swiss, Felipe Valenzeula is from Chile, which might explain the slight Latin tinge to the above cuts. Apparently they’ve been working together for 10 years, and according to Disco G’s, both have had releases out on UK label Metroline Limited, but I think this is the first I’ve heard from them. I’d like to hear more though…
