Review: Carpet & Snares is a label and record store based in Lisbon and managed by Jorge Caiado. It is the result of a plural vision of house and techno, with a desire to develop and express that vision - providing fans, artists and DJs with a physical space and an editorial platform. Following up the inaugural release by local lad Andre Leira, label head honcho Caiado steps up next for four lush excursions through the deep and evocative. Starting off on the A side with the the soulfully upbeat "AP135", an emotive groove with Motor City influences, as is "Tarradas". But it's the remix by Slow Life's S. Moreira that really owns it, featuring his trademark broken beats, emotive chord progressions and classic Detroit bleep melody - it's simply off the chain! Elsewhere, the smooth and sexy deepness of "Choices" calls to mind classic Nick Holder or Moodymann.
