„When the vocal part of Bon Iver’s Re: Stacks was sent our way, we didn’t have a slightest doubt what to do with it. Up and coming British singer and songwriter James ‘Barbarossa’ Mathé gave it a unique vocal treatment, which inspired us to produce a cover version of a different kind. Comes with remixes from Âme and dOP.”
First Single from Vidis' freshly released album 'Silence Please!'
‘Warung’ is the first single release, and the first taste of what Vidis has been cooking up for the past few months. An album ‘Silence Please!’ just released on Get Physical.
“The name of the track goes after the famous Brazilian club, ‘Warung’. We played there at the end of June, 2012. The track was freshly made and we didn’t have a name for it. It worked so well on the main floor and on the huge sound system of this mega club that we played it two times and afterward decided to name the track ‘Warung’. Good dance floor tracks and good party memories go well together! ”
‘Warung’ is an uneasy mix of sinister bass buzz and kick stomp. Various synth elements add to the malevolent ambience, and then the groove hits. A relaxing vibe washes over and mixes with the heavy bass, creating a conflict of interest that pushes the tension higher – and holds until the last drop.
Downtown Party Network’s remix operates on a smooth 4/4 groove, taking the wild bass, turning it down and letting it loose in the subterranean. The synth elements are used to great effect there, achieving quite a deep and dark atmosphere.
Lopazz & Casio Casino take their sound and rework the original into a deep and heavy ‘Beatdown Remix’, favouring a funky vibe and thick bass, while still managing to keep a dark corner in the mix. The addition of a low vocal keeps the pressure on and the tension thick.

Nacho Marco Let s Go Silly feat. Sais & Fabiani (Including Mario & Vidis Redo)
Released January 13 on Roberto Rodriguez's Serenades
We are super excited and proud to have Nacho Marco join the Serenades family with this fantastic new balearic rock disco track called ‘Let’s Go Silly’. Nacho Marco is a Spanish dj / producer from the lovely city of Valencia who started his career already in the late 80′s. He is best known for his work on labels such as Freerange, Pacha and his own Loudeast Records, releasing a constant stream of quality music. For Serenades Nacho has joined forces with two friends of his Vicente Sais and Fabiani to bring us something really special.‚ Let’s Go Silly’ in all seriousness is a really cool mid-tempo burner that grows on you slowly but surely. Funky guitar licks, balearic pad atmospheres and a great piano as the backbone. This track has it all.
For this special song we have also hired some very talented people to give us their own interpretations. Firstly we have the lithuanian masterminds Mario & Vidis with their slick and cool redo ready for the floor. Secondly we have the Serenades head honcho Roberto Rodriguez staying very true to the original yet still moving it towards the floor. Thirdly we have the elegant remix from the Helsinki based balearic masterminds Aihki which transforms the track in a lovely mood piece for those late night drives on a high altitude mountain road.
Mario & Vidis, the top Lithuanian House duo, is back with a real treat. A solid remix package to follow up the original release of their perfect-set-closing track of summer 2012. Even though all ticking at the same tempo four different remixes and remixers on the plate represent a wide spectrum of moods and styles. From Garage and Bass infected sounds of up and coming Lithuanian producer Darius Vaikas, via Miami Bass rooted Dub version of steady groovin’ American Danny Daze, to golden French Touch era reminiscent slick grooves of German combo Trickski, and summery New Disco vibes of two Lithuanian comrades from Downtown Party Network.
