Adriano Mattioli, Elias Funes – Beauty EP (The Purr Music)

Adriano Mattioli, Elias Funes, Beauty , the purr music

This week sees the long awaited debut of a brand new label imprint from Jelly For The Babies. The Serbian producer has been a staple of both the deep house and progressive communities in recent years and his new The Purr imprint promises to be exceptional. The labels debut release entitled ‘Beauty’ comes from Adriano Mattioli and Elias Funes.

The Argentinean duo have been regular studio collaborators since their debut release on Heavenly Bodies back in October of 2013. Adriano and Elias have a unique studio output which always borders on the deep and exotic. ‘Beauty’ showcases more of the same but with a lighter, airier touch. The funky, well shaped bass tones lay down a nice foundation while the delicate atmospheric top end flows through a variety of cool themes. The smooth, rhythmic stabs which run through the piece really come to life during the main break and set up a nice run of chord changes throughout the second half. Solid stuff from Adriano and Elias.

The first remix is provided by Thomas Stoffer who has been a regular contributor to Balkan Connection’s Tech division and also Happy Days Records. The Hungarian producer has been pushing his cool blend of progressive and deep house for well over a year now and his interpretation of ‘Beauty’ proves to be a nice alternative to the original. Opting for a deeper and even groovier approach Thomas’ version seems ideal for late night, back room action but it could also be perfect warm-up material for the more contemporary progressive house DJs out there as well.

The second and final remix on the release is provided by Nina Hudej who has also appeared a few times on Balkan Connection Tech as well as Modu Records. The Slovenian producer has closed the release out with a great interpretation of ‘Beauty’ which brings the groovy bass stabs to forefront of the mix along with a nice complement of iridescent tones and strong claps. It rounds out an exceptional first release for The Purr and we expect there will be many more of similar quality in the not too distant future.
