2017 is an important year. It’s been ten years since Discotexas was formed by Moullinex and Xinobi. It may sound surprising now but the reality is that none of us could image that 10 years later Discotexas would still be running, let alone everything that’s been achieved.

It all started is a very simple way in 2007. Both Moullinex and Xinobi, felt the need to get their music released and heard, so in good old DIY way, they just started Discotexas. They had to.

A decade went by. It’s been a rollercoaster of achievements and disappointments, but most importantly, we managed to get both our music and that of others released and heard and played and enjoyed. That’s the beauty of doing Discotexas.

We can’t find a better way to celebrate a decade of Discotexas than putting out a very special record. “10cotexas” is a compilation that captures our history and our eternal passion for music. It’s a memorable gathering of our artists and some of their most important tracks. We’re proud of it. It contains iconic originals and remixes by Moullinex, Xinobi, Da Chick, Kamp!, Rebeka, Mirror People, Zimmer, Justin Faust, Bufi, Miami Horror or Psychemagik, alongside a “hidden-for-ages-treasure” by Double Damage and the first original track by the Discotexas Band, an in-house band comprising Moullinex, Xinobi and Da Chick.

German based Paredes, aka Florian Meyer began his career in the late 80's in the Kumite in Hong Kong. After round 2, he suffered a broken leg and reconsidered his career being a natural badass. After a long exile in a hidden temple in the lower Karakoram, an inner voice led him to the art of producing electronic music.

“Without Intermission” is a melodic house track that grows into a pop-feel tune with abstract chopped vocal arp. All these elements are built above a huge and effective bass sound that will unglue your feet out of the bar. 

“Bullet Proof” reveals itself as a dance floor filler made of synthetic tropical sounds that Paredes mixed so well with Garage elements, summing everything into an irresistible groove. 

With “Gold Rush” Paredes teams up with his friend Hannes Rasmus and get a little bit more gloomy. It’s dark house music with an introspective mellow appeal and stab sounds. Something really special for your mind.

“Love Love Love”, the sunshine-infused call to arms by Moullinex gets remix treatments from Larse, Switchdance and Les Loups.

From Larse we can expect the finest and honest deep house punctuated by an hypnotic bassline. This remix is a lesson in elegance, combining a tight groove with an earth-shaking bassline, climaxing in an euphoria-inducing breakdown.

The new Innervisions star and Lux Lisbon resident DJ, Switchdance, takes “Love Love Love” on a dark and spiritual journey. Where the original has the sun, this remix has the moon, and those flutes are guaranteed to extract howls even from the most blasé audiences.

Les Loups stay on the sunny side of life and skilfully place the original’s elements in the irresistible intersection of House and Jazz. Groove is king.
