Holding a regular residency in Treehouse Miami, ADRIANZA certainly knows what brings the dance floor alive and he proves this in his extensive debut album, ‘Algo Distinto’ meaning ‘Something Different’ when translated to English. Releasing on his own label, ADRIANZA Records, the work exhibits his craftsmanship as a producer (notably at a very young age) as he experiments with the tech house sound by adding his own unusual twists and elements, spaced out minimal funk, with depth and emotion. A sure nod of approval for what this young producer is set to achieve, with remixers he has on board including, REME, Ray Mono, Daniel Meister, Freddy Bello, Mano Andrei, Azteca. Also joining the positive ride that is ‘Algo Distinto’ are companions Moig & Demenz.
‘No Games No More’ makes a compelling opener with its metallic percussive groove paving the way for dreamy pads, a popping bass and ghost ware vocals. A remix by REME stays very much in this sound world created in the original mix with the drum groove rumbling a bit more whilst sticking solidly to the tech house groove.
‘22 Jams’ follows with an alluring pad introducing the track whilst a drum beat slowly layers underneath, eventually coming to the forefront of the picture. As soon as we are settled into this easy listening track, an array of dissonant synth sounds splutter around wondrously. A remix by Ray Mono gives the listener a more house feel of the track, with it’s strong kick beat and hi-hat groove laying more of the foundations. This remix really mashes up the original whilst keeping to the dreamy world Adrianza gave us.
ADRIANZA takes us on an expansive journey onto another world with his ethereal-ridden ‘Algo Distinto’. An essential release from a young label and producer expanding across multiple flavours for different moods, sure to be something here for everyone. A jam packed selection of dance floor heaters from a rising star, accompanied by some household names of modern dance music. A seemingly bright future, set to be a figure of the next generation of club room producers.
