[GRAN 029] Tripmann & Sandrobianchi - The Lament

Los Grandes is back presenting a new collaboration from Tripmann and Sandrobianchi. Two brilliant tracks comfortably positioned somewhere between the most elegant slomo and effective deep house.

‘The Lament’ is about nostalgia riding over a perfect soulful groove. Elegant guitars, sleazy rhodes and midnight trumpets match as perfect companion for the mellow but strong vocals.

Fingerman’s mix speed up the tempo giving the track a full disco house treatment. The track becomes a total latin fiesta madness after the Brighton’s disco don refurbishment. Dancefloor heater.

‘Girl’ keeps the melancholy by using smart sampling, a cold but playful synth arpeggio, epic pads and strings; all that layered over a tremendous heavy bass and perc.

Dynamicron’s mix is about slowing things and turn the track into a more dark and electronic side. Somewhere among Nu Disco, Coldwave and Italo is this mix kicking around.

We hope you enjoy!

Juno Download review: "There's something deliciously laidback and sultry about "The Lament", the first collaborative single from Madrid-based producers Tripmann and Sandrobianchi. The track is built around a head-nodding, midtempo deep house groove, but it's the variety of sweet, sensual samples - think eyes-closed jazz guitar solos, bluesy vocals and hazy trumpets - that stand out. Fingerman's impressive remix injects a little extra energy via a sub-heavy bassline, sample cut-ups and heavy, bongo-laden disco percussion. The EP's undisputed highlight, though, is Dynamicron's remix of "Girl", which turns the woozy, sun-kissed original into a stylish, slightly intense chunk of Balearic disco crossed with exotic, new wave-era middle Eastern synth-pop."

[GRAN 028] Futurewife - Slash Fiction EP

Los Grandes produly presents the 4th EP from Seattle-born Futurewife brings a whole host of world genres into the proverbial kitchen for one lovely disco-mash. The three original tracks are taken constructed from the loop-laden meandering of his live sets and carefully arranged into 6 minute house jams. Sink your teeth into the one of America's most abstract & confusing house producers. All this with three fantastic remixes aside crafted by DynamicronHeion & Ali Jamieson.

We hope you enjoy!

Juno Download review:  "Here he delivers the belated follow-up, an expansive six-track set featuring three original productions and a trio of tasty remixes. His style - cut-up, eccentric and funky, with curious instrumentation and an unfussy joviality - is arguably best showcased by the wonky funk of "As Luck Would Have It", though the filter-heavy disco-house blast of "Come To Love" runs it close. Remix-wise, there are particularly good versions of "As Luck Would Have It" by Heion (baggy Balearic nu-disco) and Dynamicron, whose slowed-down interpretation sounds both strangely druggy and intensely sober. Either way, it's delightfully exotic and pleasingly humid."

[GRAN 027] The Two Mamarrachos - Edits

Juno Download review:  "It's hard to establish who here (label or artist) is luckier to be associated with the other. Los Grandes is one of the hottest nu-disco labels of the moment, but new signings The Two Mamarrachos have some serious weight behind them too. Based in San Sebastian, T2MM consist of veteran Balearic DJ Dr Beat - a former resident at Ku Ibiza and Amnesia, who counts the likes of DJ Harvey and Eskimo Recordings as fans, and Borja Campion: owner of 10,000 records and self-proclaimed "stage animal". They're known for their exquisite edits and here they deliver four more quality disco-rock beauties."

[GRAN 025] Mosaik - We Found


Los Grandes comes to 2014 with bearing a shiny EP from Macedonia, Mosaik 'We Found'.

The first track, 'We Found', is a silky deep disco beauty in where grooveness, analogic bass sound, soft vibes and an angelical voice match perfectly while riding over a bumping house percussion. A blissful, head nodding, daydreaming, sunset anthem.

Alexander Robotnick reshapes the main track into a massive club hitter using wisefuly plenty his analogue weaponry. An exciting electronic house acid disco journey contrived by the legend himself.

Dynamicron reworks 'We Found' driving the track to a even more emotional dimension helping himself with pianos and dramatic arragement.

Vladislav Mousteache Love brings the last version of 'We Found'. Reshaping the percussion, widing the space through delays, reverbs and filters, Vladislav, delivers a beutiful slowmo disco biscuit.

The last track, 'Hey Boogie', it's a pure slomo grooveness heater of the highest order. Hypnotic voodoo boogie spell.

The artwork has been designed by Maci Meow Chillkova.

Tracks 1,2,3 and 5 mastered by Roland Schwarz.

We'll be back to you soon with a new volume from the Black Lace compilations serie.

Juno Download review:  "Macedonian duo Mosaik hit it hard by releasing "We Found" on the mighty Los Grandes and roping in some heavyweights on remix duties. The original recalls that deep 80s silky smooth sound - all shiny chrome guitar licks, glowing neon Don't Look Any Further synths and added dreamy vocals. Italo disco hero Alexander Robotnik keeps the deep vibe but adds some light 303 attitude to the mix, label boss Dynamicron adds some electro-disco beats and Vladislav Moustache slows things right down for a great mong-out version. "Hey Boogie" slips vintage Janet Jackson some ketamine for some slo-mo funk results. Hot!"

[GRAN 024] Trujillo - Believe In Luv EP


Los Grandes proudly presents a new release from the great Trujillo. 'Believe In Luv EP' is about sensitivenes and emotional slomo disco house. Two gems slowly baked to make your body move elegantly to their deep groove. Believe in music, believe in love.

Juno Download review: "It's Joropo dances all round as acclaimed Venezuelan producer Trujillo finally follows up 2012's hugely popular Acapulco Gold with 'Believe In Luv". With a sleeve like this he's already made believers of most of us, but he doesn't stop there; the title track is a seductive electro-houser with gentle chords, ascending guitar licks and soulful male & female vocals - in other words, the music of love. The smoochy vibes continue on his blissed-out, reggae-lite swirly version of Marvin Gaye's "Sexual Healing". Hot!"
