As the Movement brand continues to grow the dawn of 2014 finds Movement embarking on a new label project. A new Dutch sub-division entitled ‘Just Movement’ has been created and is ready to unleash a strong release schedule for the new year. The labels first release sees the much loved Argentinean producer Marcelo Vasami delivering a brand new two track EP entitled ‘Billy Mandy / Blow’.

The sultry hypnotic vibes of ‘Billy Mandy’ get the EP underway. It’s a creation full of dark undertones that really sucks you in. Marcelo’s mesmerizing rhythms are as infectious as ever with a wide array of tones bouncing off each other for the ultimate groove. The break provides the restrained tension and subtle atmospheric shifts that an educated dance floor are sure eat up. This sets up the perfect conclusion will all the pulsating rhythms working in perfect union for a momentous wall of energy. The companion piece ‘Blow’ slowly develops another one of Marcelo’s irresistible grooves. A riveting vocal sample runs through the piece and quickly peaks your attention while the smooth beats and warm foundation continue to build rhythm. A trippy, washed out atmosphere soon reveals the main break where a set of broken beats and wobbly hypnotic themes brings the groove back. The mesmerizing tendencies of the record are even stronger over the second act with cool harmonic shifts adding an unexpected emotional component. Two great productions from Marcelo that gets Just Movement off to a very strong start.
