ABOUT

Carlos Mendes‘ Passion for Music began a long time ago he was only 17 when he started taping the „Top Ten“ of the week on Fridays Radio podcast Bayern 3, a local Radiostation in Munich, just to pass them on at Birthday parties or other events.
Back then without helpful technical devise – no mixing desk, no turntables – he grabbed his HiFi tower with 300 W output line and winding the tapes to the right place to start playing music without mixing the single tracks with each other.

In 1995 the artist was captured by the classical DJMixing or as you say „ BeatMixing“ when there were enough records in his Privat collection. At this time Funk-Artist and Bands like Cameo, Yarbrough & Peoples, Prinz, Cool and the
Gang, Marvin Gaye, Micheal Jackson and the Jackson Five played an important roll in his musical development.

The music inspired Carlos more then 24 years, the Portuguese artist is devoted now exclusively to Electronic Dancefloor Music in their broad facets.First producer experiences he made in 2001. The skilled interior designer, was ask by a friend to decorate a studio for a music video. Immediately the 26 year old was exited about the multiple possibilities and different Instruments to create music.

According to numerous reams of hours trying this and that at the studio fascinated by the options to create music he found himself in trance, completely lost in music. Tireless he worked on the miscellaneous sounds and beats until everything matched together„… but they will never be finished! he says …

From 2001 until 2003 Carlos lived on the Island of Mallorca, where he and a friend (Very known but he doesn’t want to be mentioned) had the idea to launch the label called „ Disko Massaka Recordings“. Which predominant releases styles like Tech-House, House, and Progressive House.In spring 2003 he went back to Munich and took over the label 100%. Today „ Disko Massaka“ is the Mother-Label a total of three Labels.In 2007 Living Room and Carlos introduces the second Label „ GoodMoodMusic“ which includes the styles Chill out, New Jazz, Acid Jazz, as well as Drum and Bass.

Only one year later in 2008 followed his 3. label called „ Diskoton“ back then with the idea of releasing Techno music, but as the market requires a more deep melodic tracks, the main focus of the Label went on in a Deep & Deep/Tech direction.

Coming up next on DM is this very well done track called Solano! As they say in Spain Solano is an south-east blowing wind effected in the south cost of Spain which exactly describes the energy of this sophisticated tech house bomb ! As we know already Papi Chulo & Carlos Mendes caused as a dream team quite a few times for Incredibly good Music with us, but now having an equal studio wizard Esteban Ortega involved on their very first debut single gives the Music another dimension! Very well done and confidant that more of the 3 Musketeers will follow.

THU kicks off 2013 with German Tech House guru Carlos Mendes is a well seasoned DJ/Producer who is motivated by his love of dance music, his flavor and inspirations span several genres and is just crazy for those jumpin' tech beats with a side order of progressive house.

We have gone for the most expensive thing on the menu and it tastes real good. This also meant the remixes had to stand tall so in stepped Gokhan Guneyli, Mkdj and Kimeko who all bring some individual spice. Serious grooves guaranteed heads down movement on the dancefloor.

When old friends meet, they talk about things that really matter. If these friends happen to be the German-Liberian singer / songwriter Zoe Mazah and the DJ & producer Carlos Mendes, these kind of conversations can easily turn into a song. Their recent collaboration BE AND LET BE is a driving vocal techhouse track at its best for dance animals. Zoe's warm and hypnotic voice wraps around Mendes' typical deep impulsive beats in lyrics, that offer a political message of two old friends talking. THIS RELEASE IS ALSO AS STEMS FORMAT AVAILABLE !
