Bradock, Pepe - Synthese Label: Versatile

Pepe Bradock is a legend in electronic music who regularly plays to tens of thousands in Europe. He's a world-reknowned DJ/producer whose records are an essential part of any DJ's collection. He is mentioned in the same breath as folks like Derrick Carter, Danny Tenaglia, and Laurent Garnier. Pepe is based in Paris but DJs all over the world, even on the Big Love Show in 2010. This album is a reissue from 1998, but most people (you) are hearing it for the first time ever on CD. There's house, disco, funk, acid-jazz, dub. The entire album is great, but try especially: 3,6,7,9,11,13.

1) exotic downtempo w/ some turntablism at the end
2) funky acid-jazz/trip-hop, snappy breakbeats and groovy synths
3) disco-infused funky house, wanky guitars in middle, a club fave for 10 yrs
4) funky house w/ fem vocal samples, jazzy melodies
5) spacey dub-funk w/ vocal bit that says "I am"
6) exotic spaced-out chill house with echo-ey synths & male vox sample
7) sexy acid-jazz, snappy breakbeats & funky groove
8) ambient track, reverberating synths & organ noodling, weird & cool
9) delicious deep-house, sexy fem vox loops, lovely synth melodies gettin' down
10) dub-ambient track, neat little effects and analog bass noodling
11) lovely straight-up house with catchy little synth loop, some disco flavors
12) echo-ey dub with fem vocals
13) funky! starts house-y but 2nd half is awash with funky vox samples & bass-heavy breaks
