Echonomist

Simple minds part 1

The 6th installment of Quantized recordings, features one of the best contemporary Greek producers and two great remixes. Petros Manganaris, known as Echonomist, comes from Thessaloniki and have been working as a Dj and producer for almost ten years. His tunes were released in labels such as Upon You, Time Has Changed and Katchuli to name a few. He is also a member of the Greek band Info.

Simple minds is a great minimal tech-house track with tight production and beautifull rolling beats. Simple and straight, it can surely work on the right dancefloors. With a catchy vocal sample in the middle of the track and distint synth lines, it is a useful tool with the word cool written all over it.

The first remix comes from England and more specific from, man-of the-moment, Gavin Herlihy. The Irish-born DJ and producer has managed to have huge success after only five years from his first recordings. His tracks came out in labels as Cadenza, Cocoon and Get Physical Music. With this remix is showing us once again why is considered one of the best house/techno producers of his generation. Dark, melancholic and melodic techno with the right house drops – a small masterpiece for the after hours. Deepness, haunted atmosphere and a tremendous build up makes this tune one of the best Quantized has ever released.

Next in line is Yiannis Siopis with a remix worthy of his fame. Straight-forward, rolling beats, great production, moody feelings and nice melodies make this a very good and useful track, perfect for the late hours.
