You must not be a superstar to make very good electronic music. I love this genre because there are so many artists that have a chance of expressing themselves. And when recognition comes from guys like Luciano, Richie Hawtin and Paco Osuna, you know you're on the right path.

From the first Body Workout, released at the beginning of 2005, it was clear that this compilation is a must for every fan of true electronica, bringing big names together and creating a feast for the ears. The latest instalment comes half a year after Volume 8, and brings just under 80 minutes of pure joy.

Tracklist:



01. We Are
02. Up There
03. Piesa 3


Opinion:


When the best Argentinian producer meets the best Romanian producers, what to expect more than some good music? This is their first collaboration, and it does not occur, as some might expect it, on Desolat (where they released many acclaimed tracks), but on London based Saved Records, belonging to Nic and Mark Fanciulli.

[digital] Pablo Bolivar - Three Ways To Move EP

Artist(s): Pablo Bolivar
Name: Three Ways To Move
Genre: deep-house
Label: Desolat
Catalog: DESOLAT021
No. of tracks: 6
Type: unmixed


Tracklist:


01. Frequency
02. Take Off
03. You Too
04. Addicted

Spanish producer Pablo Bolivar takes Desolat on a radical new path, that of deep-house, the label being known for its (sometimes minimalistic) tech-house and techno. But, as we get good music in the end, it does not matter.
