Various (Halo Varga & DeWalta, Faster, Sublee, Dieru) – Profile Series 001 [Muted Noise]
American imprint Muted Noise announces a new vinyl-only material to arrive soon in the form of “Profile Series 001” VA featuring label-head Halo Varga in collaboration with DeWalta, Faster, Sublee and Dieru. Based in San Diego, California, the label is well-known in the underground scene for its activity and releases, so far having an amazing discography signed by Alex Piccini & Proudly People, Lisière Collectif, Herck and H-Foundation (Brian Varga & Eric Galavis/Halo & Hipp-E) alongside remixes by Livio & Roby, Roger Gerressen D’Julz, Per Hammar and Enzo Siragusa. This record provides a broad and varied selection of exquisite grooves from very talented artists who nevertheless share common interests in originality, attention to detail and passion for crafting dance music with a superb sense of sophistication.
“Each unique musical idea on our first Profile Series is a timeless expression of groove mastery and individual free-standing signature sounds. Each creative mind renders a solid dynamic range of dancefloor-filling drums from track to track accompanied with swing-heavy organic percussion patterns, funk-focused basslines, trademark synth design, atmospheric richness, astute arrangements and deep vocal melodies.”Muted Noise
Side A opens with the vocal version of “Willow” by Halo Varga and DeWalta, a deep and funky house cut perfect for peak-time moments in any selection of this particular genre, as the swinging sounds provide a burst of energy with each variation of the layers. Following, Faster drops a driving melancholic vibe with “Sin Phonic”, focusing on a rotating and hypnotic synth arrangment that steadily introduces warm background pads and engaging drumming patterns to the story.
On Side B we first find “Necunoscuti” by Sublee, a proper afterhours rider that elegantly switches gears from pumping to introspective as the track evolves, twists and turns, going from straight psychedelic vibes to dubby soundscapes. Closing, Dieru‘s “Flashback” unleashes a fully abstract and syncopated minimal rhythm carefully complemented by a spacious background ambience. A delightful VA right here for collectors and selectors looking for a wax that never leaves the bag.
