Mike Molina – 30 Minutes (GRML035)
It will be released late November 2021 on the usual digital download and streaming portals such as Traxsource, Beatport, Spotify or Applemusic.
An ep produced by Matt Correa, who brings his wisdom to the genre. Matt feels confortable around funk, disco and downtempo, being these conducting cables that usually link all of his productions.
In addition to technical and musical production, Matt dares with the electric bass and keyboards, giving that organic touch that blends the whole set.
The original version of «30 Minutes» we find Mike Molina in the foreground shining with his own light. His voice conveys security and confidence and he hovers freely over a background at 116 bpm. A selection of instruments and drum sounds that catch you from the first measure. Electric bass by Matt Correa as well as the keyboards and other arrangements.
An elegant theme suitable for select settings on the beach or at a summer cocktail by the pool. Suitable to kick off that first-drink vibe and steer it toward something more serious.30 MINUTES (Superfunk Remix Remix)
A much more energetic and daring version is the one that accompanies in the number two position of this release. Broken Beats, Modern Funk or NuJazz are some of the tags that we could use to define this version but we believe, without a doubt, that the most appropriate is Temazo!
A super-powerful, twisted, syncopated, sampled acoustic drum beat gives way to the rest of the rhythmic instrumentation. Funk at its best and a bit more speed to provide continuity to an infinite and hypnotic groove.
For a future reference we have prepared an ep with several remixes of “30 Minutes”, by Alberto Segador and Rubén Zurita, among others. A dancefloor focused release with remixes around House and Tech House.
