Carlos Sanchez

Stability the remixes

After receiving large support from top tier DJs like Seth Troxler, Maceo Plex, Slam, and John Digweed, Carlos Sanchez’s Stability EP releases once more with an array of viable remixes from Unike’s impressive roster. This, their fourth release to date, is probably the biggest one yet packing in big name collaborations and remixes from the likes of DJ W!ld, Leo Leal, Markus Homm, Terence:Terry, and Martin Aquino. Expect a selection of vibes carried through each mix as Sanchez’s previous work is manipulated into four outstanding marks of musical pleasure.

Starting things off in a big way, DJ W!ld is first up on the remix deck, most notable for his Cocoon and Circo Loco residencies, this superstar talent has made quite the mark in today’s market. His dark vibes and flawless swinging productions have graced labels like ViVa Music and Robsoul Recordings, generating tracks that are deep, dark, acid, and a little bit W!ld. Expect much of the same in his mix of Sanchez’s Claim and Think as he pours on thriving bass and light chords giving way to a scene of perfect groove and swinging percussion. Next up, already seen in past Unike releases, Markus Homm teams up with label boss Leo Leal to give Let’s Make It Happen a proper house treatment. Excellent for warming up eager floors, Homm and Leal’s mix is an undeniable deep gem with snappy drums and a lazy bassline punching through softer layered melodies.

Frenchman Terence:Terry is the next big name to welcome to the Unike family. As a largely supported producer with tracks on Real Tone, 1trax, and 20:20 vision, Terry’s uncanny ability to provide a sophisticated deep sound has given him the keys to a largely successful career. His Waiting4theRevolution mix of Claim and Think supplies nothing short of sexy beats. Steamy atmosphere of timeless motion carries this revolutionary mix into a sloping display of smooth resonance. Reverberating pads and on point bits of blocks and claps lend hand to the mix’s overall theme of dark to bright energies.

Last but not least, Leo Leal teams up once again with another impressive talent from Unike’s bag of on hand producers. With past releases on One Records, District Raw, and Resopal, California based producer Martin Aquino brings yet another elegant take on Keyboard Is Not a Crime. Melodic bass and dubby elements make this mix a cosmic delight of deeper sounds. Thriving towards a more modern sound, Aquino and Leal’s pairing is one that effortlessly creates a noteworthy fill of sensory pleasures. As more and more listeners feel Unike’s musical campaign, the group thrives to provide excellent music to DJs and also to fans. This year marks the beginning of Unike’s live events with large talent crawling all over the world. The first event kicks off on October 20th in Minnesota with Visionquest master Lee Curtiss among other top talented DJs to showcase what a truly remarkable new imprint can bring to our dance floors.
