GALAKTIKA RECORDS – the Barcelona based imprint with roots in Venezuela, celebrates its 5 Year milestone at last with a fresh new compilation of classy and smooth party jams, expertly presented by DJs Maetrik & Garnica! Enlisted by label boss Maurice Aymard, the trio present many of their own productions across this double CD along with gems from the Galaktika back catalog and other selected favorites.
On CD 1 Maetrik leads listeners on a journey through the deeper realms of techno and house, kicking off slow and sexy with some disco-splashed deep house from Michael J. Collins. CD 1 features exquisite music from Pezzner, Dixie Yure, Himan, Cosmic Cowboys, Pablo Bolivar and Mikael Stavöstrand & Cesare vs Disorder. Maetrik’s own aptly named techno burner “Bottom Heavy” is another highlight of the mix, and exclusive to the CD is an absolutely blissful track from his Maceo Plex pseudonym, “Her Security”. On CD 2 Garnica brings a slightly cosmic and definitely funky vibe to the celebration as he effortlessly blends together house and techhouse selections from Gui Boratto, Kruse & Nuernberg, Chopstick & Till Von Sein, Gorge and newcomers Iron Curtis and Paulo Olarte – full of groove to keep music lovers moving.
Culled from five years of record releases amounting to over 100 tracks and 40 unique artist collaborations, Maurice Aymard, Garnica and Maetrik have created a genuinely warm, timeless and spirited vibe on this compilation that makes it an essential album for dance music fans.
