Whiskey Pickle, the small digital imprint out of Austin, Texas have made themselves known with the A&R that the label has done this year. As we wrap up this 2014 calendar year, next up for the budding label is a few tracks from Playless. Spanish native and otherwise know as Alex Ferrer, this is not his first rodeo when it comes to the global music scene; releasing tracks on Toolroom, Moda, Sweat It Out, Ministry of Sound and Hed Kandi with his alias Sidechains as well as holding down a residency at Barcelona’s Razzmatazz. Alex brings us his second release as Playless with two monster tunes and some impressive remixes to boot. “How Much” starts off the gate with an alluring piano melody, sly saxophone synths and some shuffling high hats that coupled with a well blended bass line, give this track an uplifting feel that brings us back to some of dance music roots: disco.”Juno” is no less stellar with a kick drum setting the tone early along with a catchy bass line riff and addictive vocal hook makes this a no-brainer for a peak time DJ set. Xander Milne, Vulture Music label admin, has used this opportunity as his second showing on Whisky Pickle to transform the sultry “How Much” into a club banger while keeping the original piano riff gives real credence to his advance knowledge and understanding of melding genres to produce quality tunage. The remix for “Juno”. Oh wow. Taken down a notch and given a deep and dark warehouse re-rub from Whiskey Pickle powerhouse Abstrakt Audio, you can’t help but be transported to sometime back when house music started in Chicago. With this only being the second release with his alias Playless and it already receiving hype from option4, Vanilla Ace, Just Kiddin and countless others, you can expect more hit gems from the gentleman in the coming months. One final thought: out of all the writing I have done this year, this release is the most complete from back to front when it comes to versatility in being played out in all types of settings.
