From Copenhagen comes Theodor Zox debut now for Flumo Recordings. His career is full of acclaimed works for labels such as Morris Audio CS, Tic Tac Toe, Trenton, 3rd Floor, Cray1 Labworks or Neopren.
‘Shine’ is the central track which gives name to this EP. A superb production where the futurist sensuality and that old flavour of west coast deep house that dazzle more that simply shine. The perfect excuse to put on our sunglasses and jive with its stimulating rhythmic flows.
‘Slick Slider’ is a piece as twisting as gliding, as haunting as intimate, a real jewel that enriches this catalogue with its beats and that hypnotism captivatingly chromatic.
V-Sexion signs an incredible ‘Shine’ remix where a carefully introduced crescendo leads us right to the top of the dance floor. His voice treatment and that powerful groove line result in an irresistible instrument of seduction.
Ezequiel Sánchez is a young promise whom we must follow his footsteps for sure. In his remake of ‘Shine’ the touch of minimal house let us enjoy from its precise simplicity.

Shine (V-Sexion Remix)
Shine (Ezequiel Sánchez Remix)
Seville's label Flumo celebrates its first five years with reference number 20. A very special reference, which closes a really productive stage for the label and many artists, some of them a sure commitment for Flumo, having produced excellent stuff with the label, and they had now become referents in electronic music worldwide – Glimpse, Tom Demac, El_Txef_A, Dave DK, Dixie Yure, Ekkohaus, Chris Lattner, Ezequiel Sanchez, Alland Byallo, V.Sexion.
To feast this anniversary, Flumo brings a compilation containing 18 tracks from all its catalogue, embodying a monograph of club music as it is understood by this sevillian label.
"FLUMO 5 YEARS COMPILATION" contains brushstrokes of various styles and genres, chosen with care and concern from over dozens of references published by the label so far. Sometimes, Chicago's legacy blossoms –tracks by Tom Demac, El Txef A, Daniel Kyo, or Nicson- or render a jazzie character, as it is shown in works by V.Rotz, Ekkohaus, Ezequiel Sanchez, Jazzler, TWICE,or V.Sexion.
There is also room for newest acid house –Chris Lattner-, deeptechno –Dave DK & Holger Ziske, Ntanos , Glimpse, Alex Jones or -Ludwig Coenen- and pure delicious electronic, Dixie Yure.
A compendium which ends a cycle stating in the same way: with a compilatory work defining the bases and objectives of a label always looking for challenges to offer. And this is precisely what has maintained Flumo in the limelight these years.
Flumo’s recordings reference 003 is this time signed by Wego a.k.a Jordi Aragón, a guy from Valencia. He collaborates in one of the tracks with Notch (a.k.a. Jaime Romero) Lontano association forming member.
In ‘Brak’, Wego and Notch make a simple and devious techno example perfectly balanced among its melodic hypnotism, a powerful bassline and its synthetic percussions.
Theodor Zox signs his ‘Brak’ remix endowing it with a different pulse, where a mininal house is combined with a soft and very addictive groove with a high dose of soul. With ‘El Swing Virtual’ Wego invites us to wander into a space where the subtleness of sonic textures in his composition pushes us towards a delicious in crescendo with deep tech as a main host in this spectacular piece. Holger Zilske & Dave Dk elaborate a great reinterpretation of ‘El Swing Virtual’ (Virtual Swing) much more essentialist, near the vanguardist sort of dub. To cap it all, and as special present we find a ‘Brak’ remix from Wego, a free bonus trac
From Flumo, after two years as a net label and informative platform working with artists of different nationalities, have compiled this double CD with 24 unreleased tracks to further develop musical creativity in our wide but personal vision of electronic music.
In the Cd 1, Infinite Deep, we find the reflection of an extensive stylistic vision shared asthread depth projected into deep contemporary modernism from the assimilation of the classics.
Future Groove is the name of Cd 2. On this record the coordinates in that frame, butvariable in terms of nuances and interpretations are directed towards the sounds that are developed properly in the dance floor.

Neues Label, neues Glück. Und das unterstützen wir doch gern. Theodore Zox ist dagegen schon öfters auf anderen Imprints aufgetaucht. Und seine Musik fasziniert hier ungemein. Ich mag diesen House, in dem unterschwellig gebounced wird, was das Zeug hält. Dazu schmissige HiHats, die Spaß bringen und dann so nette Trompeten Snippets, die den Fun noch steigern. Alle Stücke inklusive der Remixe haben eine ganz eigene Stimmung, daß es sich wirklich lohnt eine neue Plattform dafür aufzumachen. Hoffen wir mal, daß dies fortsetzbar ist. Alles Gute!
