Brazil's definitely on fire. There's tons of amazing music coming from there. Apart from consense bands like CSS or Bono do Role or veterans like Sepultura or Bebel Gilberto there's a new generation of electronic musicians getting ready to conquer the world. Looks like Gui Boratto is just the tip of the iceberg. Fresh from Sao Paulo's impeccable THE EDGE club we're happy to present you DUBSHAPE. The project consists of DJ Joao Lee and his production partner Ale Reis. Joao earned himself an excellent reputation as a hell of a good DJ. Someone who knows how to play deep. This wisdom certainly helped to forge the sound of DUBSHAPE which is simple but tremendously classy. „Droplets“ sounds like a distilled essence of the past two decades of house music. It sounds like it's always been there. Like a good friend. It's impossible to detect a direct link to something you've heard before but at the same time soem truly great moments come back to your mind: Mr Fingers, Marshal Jefferson, Carl Craig, Ray Castoldi, die Burell brothers and even Dixons contemporary Innervisions cosmos. It's all in there. „Droplets“ is like a great bottle of red wine unless you shouldn't put this record in your basement. It should be played out loud.
