Portuguese DJ and producer Ramboiage notches up an impressive Piston Recordings debut with the superb This EP. Resident DJ at Lux Fragil until 2016, year in which abandons the most famous club of Lisbon to become Artistic Director of the Brunch Electronik, in the same city. Regular presence in the best clubs and festivals in Portugal, and in several summer festivals (NOS Alive, MEO Sudoeste, Super Bock Super Rock, Rock in Rio Lisboa), Ramboiage was invited to act in Dimensions Festival in Croatia in 2017. The musician and producer also has exercised the art of DJing around the world – New York, Berlin, Los Angeles, Mexico City, Bali, Munich, Strasbourg, Luanda, Madrid, London, Barcelona, Amsterdam, Paris, Lyon, just to name a few cities where already played. As producer he already edited several music and remixes, and this year we will hear an EP of originals on Get Physical signed by Ramboiage. In parallel, he is collaborating with Luis Carvalho, one of the more promising Portuguese fashion designers on the production of the soundtrack of his shows.
This delivers a solid deep house groove that will keep feet on the floors. Thick chunky beats and a shuffling hi hat arrangement keep the rhythm flowing nicely as an upbeat bassline is matched with sexy chords. Cool vocal effects mesmerize while subtle melodic keys bring in an air of sophistication. A very nice deep house joint that will not disappoint.
I’m Going To NY takes things into the more funkier echelons of deep house with a sublime rendition featuring mesmeric chords that melt into the sound beautifully. Chunky kick drums are joined by tight rhythmic hi hats and percussions to get the hips swaying. A quirky bassline pops up alongside melodic bells bringing a sparkle to the groove making this an absolute must for the late night groovers.
