House | Select Tracks from Nicolas Matar ‘Cielo: Sunrise’ EP

Now that I’m finally 21 and actually have reliable transportation, I can finally start getting out to D.C. and Baltimore for a lot of house music events. I shouldn’t be missing any more Deep Sugar nights at the Paradox, because now I can actually drive to Baltimore instead of having to freak out and attempt to find a ride.

I’m looking forward to going to Deep Sugar next weekend, but this weekend I’m going to check out this house event in D.C. called Motions. This is my first time hearing about it, but I’m going to check it out Saturday night and see what it’s all about. You know that I’m a house junkie, so whenever there is house playing, I try to be there.

Typically I find good house on iTunes podcasts and soundcloud, but the other day Music Choice actually played a really nice house mix by Nicolas Matar. I’ve listened to Nicolas Matar’s Cielo:Paradise EP in the past, and I truly loved his ability to mix together deep house, nu-house, jazz, and a little afro house.

Nicolas Matar’s Cielo: Paradise was quite a compilation, and that same vibe of seamless house can be found on his latest release, Cielo: Sunrise. It wasn’t until listening to Music Choice’s Dance/Electronica channel that I heard some delightful tracks off Nicolas Matar’s EP, and I knew that I immediately had to blog about it.

The CD contains some delightful house mixes, so I thought it would be cool to show y’all some of my favorite tracks from the EP. Have a listen below.

Deniz Kurtel feat JADA – “The L Word” (Guy Gerber’s Countryside Remix)

I really like this track, especially because it’s got this nice organic vibe and the lyrics are beautiful too. You can never go wrong when talking about love.

DJ T. featuring Cari Golden – “City Life” (Maceo Plex Remix)

Um, Maceo Plex remix. Need I say more? Golden.

Parker_Pooley – “Feel the Same”

Let’s go a little deeper.

Layo & Bushwacka – “Summer Gone”

A little more ethnic, hints of tribal. Nice track!

Steffi – “Sadness”
