Ontario producer Pavalon sizzles with ”Nothing’s True”

In life, it’s so hard to work out what is real and what isn’t. When you meet someone that you like you don’t want to give away too much. Being a bit mysterious is always a good way to go.

His home town is King City, Ontario in Canada. Marco-Attilio Ventresca-Clarino aka Pavalon is a new producer in the game and wow does he make good music. The beat flows in with a subtle intro at the start and we are fooled into thinking this is a folk singer-songwriter. Pavalon has different ideas and the beat soon reflects an electronic-pop summer hit for the ages. The vocals are so nicely done and I love the sax that just adds that sprinkle of lust that we needed. This is a good song and is all about not telling that future lover too much. A trap that a lot of us fall into. Giving the keys to our heart too fast gives off the wrong energy.

If this is the standard to come from this Canadian producer then we are witnessing a new star in the making. ”Nothing’s True” is a quality track.

Check out the Spotify link for the tightly made track for summer.

Cotola – Deep House tackles deep subject matter

Inspiration comes from all directions and whilst house music is probably best known for more throw away lyrics and instantly gratifying grooves, Cotola is an artist who really puts the “deep” into deep house. An instrumental which draws its inspiration from the figure of Mary Magdalene and which blends South American vibes and sensuous Afro-beat with the more usual slick urban sounds.

And that would be enough to whet the appetite of any discerning dance music lover but it gets much more interesting than this one track suggests. Taken from a suite of 7 tracks which explore more than just the interconnection of different strands of world music, woven into its music are themes such as sacred geometry,  sensuality, esoterica, balance, peace and love. Music for a whole new age? Perhaps, but it is safe to say that house music has rarely been this deep.
