Dm (Mx) – Nature (Organic House 2023) [Happy Camper Records]

Happy Camper Records is a Dutch organic house record label founded by Unders, Noraj Cue and Britta Arnold. Its latest release features a mystical original track from Dm (Mx) alongside remixes by The Soul Brothers, Ape Chimba and Unders.

Dm (Mx) is the solo production alias of Mexican artist, Dani Muñoz, who is best known for being one-half of The Soul Brothers duo. His style is a unique blend of organic sounds and analogue music equipment and along with releasing via his own Talavera Records, he has also featured tracks on Cafe De Anatolia and Lump Records.

Along with providing the original music as a solo artist, Dani Muñoz has also provided a rework under his alias The Soul Brothers, which is a collaborative project with fellow Mexican artist Tomás Encorrada. The Soul Brothers tracks have been released via the likes of Sol Selectas, Abracadabra Music, and Magician On Duty. This remix is true to their style, which blends traditional instruments from their Mexican heritage with modern electronic sounds.

Unders provides two remixes on this release, one is a solo dub rework, and the other is a collaborative remix with Ape Chimba. Unders is well-known for his DJ sets at places like Burning Man and for his top-selling productions on prestigious record labels ranging from Sol Selectas to Katermukke.

Ape Chimba is a Spanish artist from Ibiza whose spellbinding style of downtempo and organic house can be heard on labels such as Resueno, Chill Mountain and Pino Music. He is a respected DJ in Ibiza’s thriving organic house scene and this is his first time collaborating on music with Unders.

The original mix of “Nature” opens the release with hypnotic percussion that’s infused with psychedelic sounds that give its techy groove a trippy atmosphere. The track builds with intensity as it unfolds with the steady momentum of tribal rhythms.

Unders & Ape Chimba remix of Nature restructures the original while also adding a vocal chant that creates a new dimension to the track. They also bulk out the percussion to add extra drama that lifts the intensity to the next level.

Third on the release is Unders’ dub which is very similar to his rework with Ape Chimba, but he removes the vocal elements to let the percussion take full control.

Closing out the release is The Soul Brothers remix, which lessens the groove to add shuffling percussion and a funky bassline that brings an uplifting vibe to the intensity of the original.
