Various – From The Bottom Of The Ocean Up To The Moon

December 17, 2014 in Albums

From The Bottom Of The Ocean Submarine VibesLast one for tonight, and the last ‘catch-up’ review before, tomorrow, we’ll finally crack on with THIS week’s releases.

So, what we have here is a 12-track compilation from Submarine Vibes, a fledgling label collective based in Sarajevo, Bosnia. Whether you’ll have heard of many of the artists involved is in doubt – certainly Ill Cows and Jelly For The Babies are the only names to have cropped up on TIWWD previously – but the quality of the music isn’t. Deep and tech house vibes are the general order of the day, with a couple of excursions into straight-up techno and more downtempo pastures, and while Carlos Francisco’s Jericoara with its layered percussion, understated bass wobbles and mission control dialogue samples is a clear stand-out, the calibre generally is impressively high for such a young imprint.

Out: Last week (but only on Friday so we’re not too far behind!)

About: Apart from this compilation, Submarine Vibes have put out just nine releases to date. Get the full skinny from their Soundcloud and Facebook pages or at their own website.
