Shcuro - Ignis Fatuus EP OUT SOON!

Shcuro - Ignis Fatuus EP (CM003)
Release date: May 20th, 2013
Label: Circus Maximus
Cat. Number: CM003

Format: Digital

01. Shcuro - Ignis Fatuus
02. Shcuro - Ignis Fatuus (Headbirds Remix)
03. Shcuro - Ignis Fatuus (Volatil Remix)
04. Shcuro - Chromohidrosis
05. Shcuro - Chromohidrosis (Daino Remix)

In the hills of Linda-a-Velha where Shcuro inhabits, you have a tremendous view of the entire city of Lisbon and the south-side.

We can only imagine that was the source of inspiration for Shcuro to create Ignis Fatuus, an amazing track that simultaneously summon the futuristic detroit of the 90s and the current deep dubstep sound.

On the remix duties for the title track we have two Barcelona heroes: Headbirds and Volatil. Headbirds turns the track into a 4x4 slow motion flight over sunny Spain, while on the other hand Volatil creates a tense landcaspe with a broken swing beat and a dark bassline.

Then comes Chromohidrosis with broken dubby techno vibes that suddenly turn into groove, always with a cloudy edge hovering above. At last we have the remix that comes by the hand of Daino, that further dramatizes the original into a more steady 4x4 version.

Audiopath - King of Kings EP (CM002) OUT NOW!

Audiopath - King of Kings EP (CM002)
Release date: February 18th, 2013
Label: Circus Maximus
Cat. Number: CM002

Format: Digital

01. Audiopath - King of Kings
02. Audiopath - King of Kings (Infestus Remix)
03. Audiopath - King of Kings (Trikk Remix)
04. Audiopath - Candidate for Heaven
05. Audiopath - Candidate for Heaven (Madji'k Remix)

The Lisbon and Oporto based collective Circus Maximus is back with a new jam that's going to put House heads salivating. We present you Audiopath, a new name, but not a newcomer.

After years spent producing and playing Techno as Luxer (and even having one of his tunes being played by none other than Richie Hawtin himself!) he now switches to a more soulful sound with a new name. Audiopath brings us two originals backed by three different remixers:

First up we have King of Kings, a funky tribute to “The King of Style”, the graffiti legend Kase.
It's a wild stylish number with punchy electric piano stabs and a thunderous sub bass-line that keeps the groove simple, yet effective!

On the remix duties we have Circus Maximus head Infestus, bringing us a Speed-Garage
influenced take on the original. Stompy kicks, reecey bass, cut up stabs and ferocious tempo!
Somewhere between London, New York, and of course Setúbal in after-hours mode.

Up next there's Trikk, the bass music prodigy, originally from Oporto and now residing in London. His version takes the original into slow motion mode, including a melodic TB-303 riff and a broken beat. Perfect for warming up the floor!

Then we have the second original, Candidate for Heaven. A deep house cut with black gospel shouts and soulful chord progessions, Chicago style, but still packing enough punch for the peak time! This one is already a classic.

The last track is a Candidate for Heaven remix by the hands of the legendary French producer,
Madji'k, flipping the original idea into a balearic synth-pop cut with quasi-ravey stabs. Yes, now it feels complete.

From Oporto to New York, then to Chicago and London, ending in Paris. This one has something for everyone!
