Perspectives is back with its 2nd annual WMC Sampler in preparation for this year’s Miami Winter Music Conference. Last year’s compilation was one of their most popular releases of 2014. The bar was set incredibly high but #TeamPD has managed to top themselves again with new selections by some of the industry’s brightest talents.

Label boss Darin Epsilon has been on a huge roll delivering excellent work on great labels such as Sudbeat and Perfecto. ‘Denpasar’ was inspired by his recent tour of Indonesia and is named after the capital of Bali, an island paradise known for its beautiful wildlife, sandy beaches, and sweltering heat. The layered sounds melt wondrously together here to create a subtle melodic gem.

Toronto based producer Dustin Nantais has been compiling an impressive catalog of music over the years that ranges from deep emotional house to energized big-room techno. ‘Rumours’ is a mysterious sounding production that oozes with elegance and class. He’s a welcome new addition to our roster after well received releases on Manual Music, Proton, and Sound Avenue.

Cali, Colombia is a city famous for salsa music and now soon-to-be Kamilo Sanclemente. ‘Galathea’ fuses sophisticated melodies with playful rhythms and one enormously funky bassline. Its heavy FX-laden speech during the breakdown conjures up feelings of nostalgia and timelessness. We were blown away by this demo and signed it immediately while attending Amsterdam Dance Event a few months ago.

Last but not least is Subandrio from Sri Lanka and Dubai, who was Pioneer’s ‘Middle East DJ of the Year’ in 2013. ‘Twisted Dimension’ is a superb contribution by him and comes after impressive EP’s on Replug and Lowbit Records. It’s a fine slab of musical warmth with refined intricate tones and sweltering pads that create tension and elegance to balance the track wonderfully.
