One of our most dedicated 19BOX artists, Genuine Fakes AKA Sota S., graces us with his presence once again with three loungey tracks. Along with his original work, he remixed artists such as DJ 19, Oscar Gs & Albert Ballart and Tony Kosa recently. 'B4 The Daybreak' delivers a smooth female vocals mixed together with Asian elements. 'Shadow' takes a cue from Japanese pop, using emotional vocals to great effect while backed by a nice and simple tribal groove. 'We Have To Hold On' is a little bit different from other tracks, insomuch that it takes influences from the B-52's and the big beat sound that was popular with Fatboy Slim in the late 1990s. This is a new direction for Genuine Fakes. He's been actively seeking different types of genres of music to combine with his well-known downtempo sound.
As always, we've got you primed for the dancefloor from raising star Eddie Cuesta from New York City. As a result of his Dominican roots, he was influenced by hip-hop, house, Latin, reggae, freestyle and reggeaton during the 1990s. That soon evolved into a love for house music from NYC-based DJ/producers like David Morales, Danny Tenaglia, Erick Morillo, Armand Van Heldan and so on. His style is deeply based on the NYC tribal sound, which in turn has seen him release tracks on labels such as STEREO PRODUCTIONS, IBERICAN ENCODINGS, NERVOUS RECORDS, JUNGLE FUNK and many more.
