With Julian Rodriguez’s ‘Nobody Knows’ (in collaboration with White Resonance) out this week on Clinique Recordings, we take a look at his favourite tracks of the moment in the latest edition of What’s In Your Box?
1. RY X – Only (Stevie R & The Acid Beast Edition) [Chapter 24]
This is one of those tracks that attracts people to the dancefloor, ideal set beginner or opener to leave the crowd expectant. Good melody and beautiful vocals, this is without doubt the best track I’ve heard in the past few months and never fails.
2. Scotty.A – Lost in Translation (Nicholas Van Orton Remix) [Soundteller Records]
Been listening to Scotty’s and Nicholas’ production work individually for many years. They both are excellent musicians and what could be better than one remixing the other? Perfect Fusion. A must have track, with the quality than only Nicholas could give.
3. Julian Rodriguez & White Resonance – Momo’s Garden (Artfaq Remix) [PHW Elements]
With Alberto, my mexican friend with which I’ve worked on several collab projects and it has always been a pleasure to work with, we’ve been able to finish this track a few months ago…
On remix duties, what better than these guys, who conform one of the duos who I like the most at the time, with an enormous future but, beyond that, a fantastic present. I love this remix, and it’s one of the best ones, to my criterion, that has been done of one of my tracks.
4. Porra – Put The World On Track (Original Mix) [Massive Harmony Records]
Rodrigo Martin Lopez aka Porra is one of those artists in constant growth, and never disappoint. If there’s anything to like, is the good and well developed melodies, and this track has all of it. I could listen to this 10 times without getting bored. Very proud to say that this one has been released on my own label.
5. MNR – Anathem (Robert R. Hardy Remix) [Balkan Connection]
What can I say about Robert that we don’t know already? This guy is growing big and fast, and this remix proves it one more time. Great sound, one of those tracks that will make you feel like you’re flying while on the dancefloor, in your home or wherever you are.
6. Contribute Translation – Fax (Sebastian Busto Remix) [Hydrogen]
I love Sebastian’s production work, he is a great friend of mine and an excelent musician. This remix couldn’t be any better, perfect for those moments in which the crowd needs a good dose of melodies. Great breakdown, and sounds that only Sebastian could craft, together with a groove that won’t let you stay still for a moment.
7. Becky Becky – Tigers Are Better-Looking (Echo Babylon Remix) [Personal Theatre Records]
To be honest, this is the first remix I’ve heard of Echo Babylon duo, and I must say they’ve given me quite a tremendous surprise. A very elaborated track, with good taste and fineness. I think this is another must have!
8. Traveltech – Dubweiser (Erdi Irmak Remix) [Massive Harmony Records]
When Bálint Bendegúz Bakos aka Traveltech sent me the original mix as a demo for Massive Harmony, I instantly thought that a remix from Erdi could’ve been fabulous, and I wasn’t wrong about it. His version has an incomparable groove, with his own signature sound that characterizes him. One of those tracks that you can’t forget that easily when you go out of the party, and will def be on your mind for a couple of days.
9. iio – Rapture (German Angeleri & Mariano Montori Bootleg) [CDR]
On my teenage years I’ve heard lots of tracks from this American band, and this is one of those classics that are timeless. German and Mariano have done a beautiful bootleg, as usual, and we just can’t get enough of their great quality and musical taste. They’ve added their own quote of groove that go along perfectly well with the voices and melodies of the original track.. You should have this one on your “In Your Box”.
10. Memory (Arg) – Flying Children (Gebio & Guido Elordi Rainy Day Remix) [Massive Harmony Records]
Maybe only a few know that one of my favorite styles is the Progressive Breakbeat, with low tempo and laidback grooves, with which I usually play as openers for a set. A track with such fineness, tranquility and that starts unleashing so harmoniously as perfect. Gebio and Guido have done an outstanding remix of this track, and they gave the whole release a great personality.
Bonus. Julian Rodriguez & White Resonance – Nobody Knows EP [Clinique Recordings]
A new collab track with White Resonance that has been released on Clinique Recordings this week, with a great remix from Mo’ Funk. Mandatory and even infallible on the dancefloor, ideal to set up a great start to a good night. You just cannot miss this!
