House heavyweights Ivan Cappello & Raul Mendes team up for an infectious club banger ‘Lost & Found’
Sicilian House heavyweight Ivan Cappello touches down on Kaisen Records on the back of an action packed couple of years that has seen the production whizz land support from a legion of the most influential spinners in the business including Tiesto, Kryder, Blasterjaxx and many more. With a signature sound that bends groove-heavy and upfront House productions with a bouncy backdrop – the Italian beat-maker has whipped up a back-catalogue of stunning work that’s earning him a reputation as a serious distributor of potent dance-floor weapons.
Production partner on this release Raul Mendez brings his powerful Brazilian influence into the record adding his distinct South American flavor to proceedings. Having already locked down the House scene in his home nation with appearances at Tomorrowland and UltraBrazil, it’s nothing out of the ordinary to see Raul lining up alongside industry kings such as Hardwell, SteveAoki and SteveAngello on a long line of heavy-duty shows. A regular in the Beatport charts via some of the world’s leading House imprints, Raul turns his attention to the Kaisen imprint for this impending drop with Ivan Cappello.
‘Lost & Found’ kicks off with a jacked groove and percussion arrangement that rolls along underneath the airy vocal sprays creating uplifting main-room moments that will send crowds into action without hesitation. The brass hits and risers make way for a contrasting offbeat rubbery bass-line that hammers in-between the main kick drums like a sub frequency piston. The stacked bass kick-drums and bass tones ensure that ‘Lost & Found’ will without doubt do the damage on a bigger system.
The central breaks drop the low end content, switching the direction into a flurry of eastern-inspired woodwinds, brass and heavily filtered and warped vocals which snap back into the main dance for a grand finale. The sharp production work and clear focus on reactive fills and pre-drops makes ‘Lost & Found’ a dead cert for House crowds across the board.
Kaisen Records have planted their flag firmly into the grounds of the House music world over the last year and with their roster and catalogue ceaselessly growing in size and quality, 2018 is looking like a year of serious development for one of the year’s most exciting emerging imprints.
