- Various Artists - Hand Out, Chapter 2 - AMAMEXTRA017
After the successful Chapter One released earlier this year, now it's time to grab Hand Out – Chapter Two. As opposed to that edition, comprising mostly familiar names from the AMAM roster, this one brings in some fresh blood, with six tracks to soundtrack your nocturnal adventures on the dancefloor.
First up is Dhaze & Sabe, with their first official release as a duo. That's not to say that these two Italian DJ/producers are newbies, and they're not strangers, either. Aside from their solo releases, Dhaze recently remixed Sabe's “Lobe Night”, released on Uber Tech Recordings. “Hope Dope” is a slice of sci-fi tech-house, stomping and buzzing, marked by mutant voices and electro flourishes, while “Absolute” has a deeper current with hypnotic whispers.
Nadia Popoff has been steadily building a name for herself outside her native Argentina, where she's already proven herself a force as both DJ and producer. Here she offers the kinetic “Trust Somebody” and the smoother, more subtle “Life Creations”.
Mr. Leman & Thomas Dieckmann are already familiar to fans of Gartenhaus, the label that this double Danish duo runs together. Their contributions are the contemplative “Brighter Day”, graced with somber piano touches, followed by the dubby, synthetic soul of “My Love”, showing the breadth of sounds that AMAM is capturing at this moment...
