Lucidflow make a ninth journey onto wax with label co-owner Nadja Lind's 'Tribe Dub', and no punches have been pulled with the array of top drawer remixers on board featuring Brendon Moeller, Tigerskin & Jack Jenson, and Terry Lee Brown Junior - plus an additional digital only remix from Brendon Moeller in Beat Pharmacy guise.
Nadja's original fires on all cylinders with a frantic sub-bass assault that isn't going to be happy unless your lungs have been thoroughly bruised by a main room's speaker stack. As the bass tumbles, phasing dub stabs gracefully arc into the stratosphere and back again.
Production veteran Brendon Moeller steps up first on the mix with an interpretation that plays on the dancing dub elements of the original. A bare percussive anchor runs through the track allowing the rest of the elements to waltz around it in a shimmying and synchronised display. As Beat Pharmacy, Brendon goes straight for the techno jugular, rolling out crackling hi-hats and a straighter groove that stretches out like taut elastic.
Usually present under the Dub Taylor guise, Tigerskin adopts his main identity in tandem with Jack Jenson to bring a bit of dreaminess to the dance floor thunder of the original. Here, the elements are whispered, like the hush of walking out on a first light and frost covered morning. As the frozen pads thaw out, you emerge from the countryside into the hustle and bustle of the city, with apt field samples layering over the subtle and insistent groove.
Plastic City head honcho Terry Lee Brown Jnr is given the task of tackling Nadja's stellar 'Ignore And Block'. Like Tigerskin & Jack Jenson before it, the theme here is frozen melodies over precisely deployed percussion. Anyone familiar with his work will immediately find them at home in the deep-but-tech groove laid out over the track.
Coming out in 22nd Feb. 2017, the release will surface on smouldering orange marbled vinyl.

The beauty of “ONE OF THOSE NIGHTS” can be found in the blend of simplicity and functionality. Both tunes are outlined by an almost brutal reduction to the core elements. carefully selected sounds that are arranged in a highly effective sequence of patterns - that is the definition of FABIO PAPA's music. His long time experience as a live performer is reflected directly in his productions. “it doesn't take a lot of elements to get a perfect groove” he states, “but without groove, there is no fire on the dancefloor”.
The record gets topped off by two powerful remixes by ANDER and the F.E.M ENSEMBLE.

Rick Wade‘s name has transmitted far and wide from his Detroit home base, garnering heaps of global acclaim for his prolific, high quality output and mercilessly deep and underground DJ sets. In 1998 Rick graced the Viva Recordings catalog with The Harmonie Project EP, a still sought-after classic for the label. Now Rick makes a welcome return to the Viva family with his Heads Only two-tracker, featuring the warm, layered house music that this legendary producer is known for.
“Heads Only” starts things off with a bouncy four-on-the-floor and a strong vocal exclamation that is the track’s cornerstone. Moody strings and pads flow over the rhythm as an ascending bass line pleasingly rattles the speakers. There’s also a perfect ‘lose yourself in the music’-style breakdown to experience. The release’s b-side, “Anger Component”, lowers the tempo just a tad as it raises the funk level. Chiming chords ring over skippy beats, and ambiguous melody transforms into string sample stabs and a gentle horn riff. This cut is reminiscent of some of the finest moments on Rick’s own Harmonie Park label, and intersects nicely with Viva Recordings’ own trademark sound. This single delivers the goods.

We are proud to present the next in the compilation series with Sonic Sounds Vol. 4 featuring four hot original mixes from Deep Active Sound, Alexander Saykov & La Rose, Campaner and Gurhan.
The compilation kicks off with a super deep track from veteran deep house producers Alexander Saykov & La Rose called 'Old Fashion'. The track is sumptuous and sensual featuring beautiful stabs, and pads creating a large ambient deep house cut. Spacious and deep, this track will please all connoisseurs of the deep house genre.
Next up is a slightly more driving track from the well-established deep house producer Deep Active Sound with 'Speedway'. In traditional Deep Active Sound style, the track features a driving bassline, tripped out percussion, chopped vocals, and large super deep filter stabs. As always Deep Active Sound does not disappoint and the production is top notch with details certain to please anyone with a discerning ear.
The third track in the pack is from Turkish deep house producer Gurhan. With great releases on labels such as DeepClass Records and Itom Records, Gurhan is doing a wonderful job of contributing top quality production to the underground deep house scene. This track is no exception, and with its expansive house chords, vast percussions, beautiful vocals and progressive melody, will get you grooving.
The fourth and final cut on this compilation comes from a collaboration between Spanish artists Campaner and Gaol. 'Pink Box' is a carefully crafted tune with a pumping beat and bassline great for bringing the energy level up a notch on the dance floor. Halfway through the track, super trippy chords make a welcome appearance alongside chopped vocals bringing the track to a crescendo of deepness.
