Molotov21 Showcase Review

The label’s third year party was celebrated on august 9th and chosen place had to be Rio’s club of the moment: CAVE.

For the line up, artists from the label Smutty and Funky, Carrot Green, Olliver Mach and the Molotov21 directors Bernardo Campos and Pedro Mezzonato were the ones in charge of picking the grooves.

Smutty began warming up with his mix of disco soulful house. Showcasing a variety of groove tunes and reworks from classic tunes such as “Shakedown – At Night”.

By 1 am the floor was starting to happen (note: People in Rio tend to go to clubs very late). By then, tunes like “Joyce Muniz – Back in the Days feat. Bam” fit perfectly as the vibe was getting better by the minute.

For the closing he took us back to The 70″s with a big reedit from funk master “Rick James – Superfreak”. A perfect start for a promising night ahead.

Then it was time for Carrot Green who started with some hypnotic but forward house music, showing that in spite of his recent more slow disco productions he can still deliver great club music.

By that time the floor was almost completely packed and going wild through Carrot”s selections.

A Big moment was when he dropped “Dapayk Solo – Oobax” mixing with Alan Fitzpatrick’s remix from “Trus”me – I Want You” getting screams out of the dancefloor.

His final choice was Todd Terje’s anthem “Delorean Dynamite” closing a perfect set with a completely packed Cave Club.

The peak hour was reserved to Mr. Olliver Mach (one half of Toucan) and his twisted garage grooves. His very second track was “Toucan – Trouble You” upcoming on Zero Eleven Records getting the dancefloor on full party mode.

The edit of Gas Pedal from Motez was also a smart choice. By this time the party was completely out of control with the crowd freaking to every song played.

His reedit for the Classic “Rockin’ To The Rhythm” From Trinere was the big weapon of his set getting a lot of hands in the air. Pure celebration!

For the closing Molotov21’s bosses Bernardo Campos and Pedro Mezzonato stepped up to the decks and embarked in a 3:30 journey of music.

The duo is back to the classic back2back that made history on Rio’s underground scene with perfect tuning between then.

They played a variety of grooves including some of the label’s classics like “Thomaz Krauze – If You Hate Me (Touchtalk Remix)” and “Rockerr – Let Your Love Surround Me“.

It was the perfect end for a perfect night. The lights came in at 8:30 AM with a still crowded floor hungry for more. The party had to end there but by the looks of it, this is just the beginning…
