D-Malice – Phases [Atjazz Record Company]

After spending his career popping up the hottest spots you can find in clubland inbetween running his own label DM Recordings and producing quality vibes with such talents as Kid Fonque Jonny Miller and Rancido please join us in welcoming back our good friend and collaborator DMalice. Taking time out of his hectic schedule and following up the release of the All This Time & "All This Time Remixes" with Kid Fonque DMalice has brought his skills to the fore again with solo ARCo debut offering: Phases'. We start with #87 and the mood is set instantly. Kicking off with straight up beats and low melodic tones that evoke the feelings and groove of the legendary Lil Louis at his finest this pumping masterpiece reaches through your body and into your hips daring you not to dance. We can promise you wont be able to resist moving to this! 3 Then DMalice introduces his trademark low bass and deep afrobeats and steps up to the podium with Phases. Taking all things musical to a more interesting pitch with a soothing and smoothing soundscape that runs up and down your spine DMalice peppers an insistent and effortless melody over a thoroughly enjoyable dancefloor goto. We then return to Phases with a remix that is Expressive in more than just name. Stepping up another gear we are welcomed to a realm of low range tones and light percussive touches that brings DMalices musical odyssey to new heights and leaves us begging for more as he usually does with his ever popular 'Expressive Dubs'. A few words from Atjazz I have always been intrigued by the sounds of DMalice Ive also seen him perform on a few occasions and I have to put it out there that he is one of the best afrohouse DJs Ive seen play live. No tricks just honest hard work and you can hear it in his music he cares and that is the first block in his wall of sound which is standing very strong. Phases had to come out via ARCo. it really suits us down the ground Techy in parts afro of course & just very well crafted dancemusic.
