Serialism Records founder and curator Cesare vs Disorder together with partner in crime and co-owner Quenum are shining at this episode of the “Before Everything Else” mixtape series. The Vol4 is again an elegant selection of 16 exclusive tracks that sit somewhere between Deep and Minimal House and Techno with an hint of Jazz and Funk with an avant-garde soul. Feat tunes by Javier Carballo, Franco y Gael, Red Pig Flower, Wilian Celuppi, YSC, Denis Bonotto, Weg & Carone, Valian, Andre Buljat, Rods Novaes & Nik Ros, Jack Cheler, Nazt, Cali Lanauze and Guilherme VAC + Cesare and Quenum themselves..all tunes presented first as a mixtape/podcast and CD, then sold separately as single tunes in this complete compilation piece. All those gems have been played all over by our honchos and partners and now finally see their release here.
Ukrainian duo Orbit & Belogurov have long been responsible for crafting out some subtle and expert minimal house wares, and it’s a trick they repeat with distinction here – this time courtesy of Cesare vs Disorder’s and Quenum’s always on-point Serialism label. Backed by a remix of rising star Stephan Bazbaz (who teams up here with Asael Weiss), the Issue EP features three originals as well as the aforementioned remix, with each track on show most definitely worthy of your attention. Coming back to classic dub house on this release and also featuring some a flourish of minimal swing on the remix, ‘The Issue’ follows much-appreciated releases by The Mole and with a Cesare vs Disorder original on its way (will one will come backed with a remix by Dan Andrei) and a Quenum also (with a remix by Luciano) these are heady times indeed for the São Paulo/London based imprint.
Yet another exciting year has flown by and the sound of Serialism has grown from strength to strength. We have hosted label nights in clubs, warehouses and festivals all over the world, and we are very proud to have gained more fans everywhere we go. Taking the label into 2016 we have initiated a new compilation series welcoming some fresh and exciting talents to the Serialism roster. Compiled by head honcho Cesare vs Disorder, he merges gems from existing label stalwarts and new comers alike. Before Everything Else Vol1 is a sublime mix of underground music which reflects the quality and diversity of Serialism. This is the genesis of something that Cesare has been planning for while, we hope you enjoy this exclusive package like we do.
