DELUSIONS OF GRANDEUR

Brothers Gerardo and Emanuel Cedillo aka Soul Of Hex are making serious waves right now. Born and raised in Mexico’s infamous border city Tijuana the duo have been immersed in the underground house and techno scene DJing, promoting events, performing live sets on their trusty Elektron hard- ware and releasing underground floor fillers for labels such as Quintessen- tials, Secret Crunch, CVMR and Dirt Crew as well as running their own Vicario imprint. Most recently, they have not only established a new venue Marko Disco in TJ, but also a new moniker Mano De Fuego and release dropping in April on Underground Resistance no less!

Here on the "Mystic EP" we find a little bit of that UR electro inspiration rubbing up against classic late 80’s US vocal house, crunchy disco grooves and driving feel-good Italo. "Love Is In Control" features the vocals of Steve Lucas of Fusion Groove Orchestra / If Only I Could fame and elsewhere we have vocal features from More Lotion and Temporal Wangan. 


STAFF COMMENTS

Matt says: Worth checking for the "Heliocentrico" track alone, which I imagine could do plenty of damage deployed at the right time. Elsewhere the nods to piano house and the housey jams of Underground Resistance tick all the right boxes.

Superb, cosmic-leaning house music from Lex on the newly invigored Delusions Of Grandeur. The Greek DJ, producer and Radical Soundz shop owner has been immersed in dance music for over 20 years and considered one of the key figures in the Athens underground house scene. Fellow Greek artist Locke joins proceedings for this EP bringing his own psychedelic influences to the table..

Title track "7 Day Path" is both spacious and driving. Rooted to a deep bassline, Lex unpacks funky leads deep in the mix whilst a lively percussion template keeps hands and heads aloft; preventing that hypnotic b-line cementing too much grip.

Cosmic royalty DJ Rocca is on hand for a remix. Here he adds his trademark dubby disco wiggle, pushing the original in a jazzy direction with live flute. Definitely one to be heard under the stars on a Croatian beach for maximum Adriatica effect!

Flipping over, things head into nocturnal territories on "See No Ball" featuring Locomotives, a more stripped back club jam with a repeated vocal, funky guitar chops and a smattering of improvised synth and Hammond B3 keeping things jazzy and musical while that percolated beat keeps the dancefloor on tenterhooks.

Closing out this brilliant EP we have "Catch Up With The Sun" which drops the BPM’s for a low-slung cosmic jam loaded with good vibes. Killer! 


STAFF COMMENTS

Matt says: Delusions Of Grandeur enlist Lex & Locke for sparkly midnight excursion into cosmic house and future disco. Sure to appeal to lovers of Future Boogie and destined to be a massive hit at Barbarellas in Croatia this Summer!
