We are pleased to welcome London's Congaloid label to the January That Mixmag Thing. The label is the new project from former Fabric resident Solo, and specialises in deep, percussive funk-fuelled house music. The first two releases on the label have found their way into the bags of many of the world's top house DJs, from Richie Hawtin to Claude von Stroke, and if you have a listen above, you'll understand why.
Solo (above) has made quite a name for himself in dance music circles with epic DJ sets and releases on esteemed house music labels like Dirtybird, Sound Pellegrino, Deadfish and most recently Kling Klong with the single 'Cringe'. He's also remixed huge names like Underworld and Depeche Mode. The former Fabric resident had this to say about starting his new label Congaloid:
“There are so many labels around that sometimes we miss great songs and ideas simply because they get lost in the big internet mess. It gives me great pleasure when I find some new producers out there and play their songs before anyone else, and I hope that Congaloid will give the same feeling to every listener and every avid DJ that wants the freshest stuff.
Label mate Seka (above) makes tunes laced with interesting percussion – a testament to his history as a drummer. From slow paced deep sounds to more racy tech-house, Seka injects varity and personality into all his productions. “Production and DJ sets of any singular style will eventually become dull,” he says, which is why you can expect a variety of top notch house sounds from his set at That Mixmag Thing January.
Over the coming months, look out for a wealth of fresh music from the expanding Congaloid family all imbued with Solo’s unshakeable passion and love for what he does. In the meantime, get down to the Queen of Hoxton on Friday Janurary 6 – it's the perfect start to the year. .
