ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Ready Mix Records is pleased to present the release of its first full length artist album. Stan Kolev explodes on the scene with this 12-track delight entitled 'Emotional Content'

Based in Miami, Kolev has made his mark producing as Future Mode, Casa Flava, Casa Bulga, Sonic Vibe as well as under his own name receiving wide support from the globally recognized likes of Paul Oakenfold, Hernan Cattaneo, David Morales, DJ Chus, Behrouz, Danny Howells and Luca Ricci amongst many others. In addition to tracks 'Don't Be' and his remix of Moonbeam's 'Sunset' already out on Ready Mix and receiving strong support and charting worldwide, he now puts forth an impressive repertoire of original tracks that are delivered with maturity, confidence, and production excellence.

The album kicks off on a deep and dubby note emerging with sparse and subtle touches of eastern flavor, thanks to the graceful Bulgarian vocals and samples that are to remain prominent elements in the album's entirety.

'Routts' eases you in the mood and signals the theme of a well rounded and audibly delicious adventure. The unveiling of his most recent material on the album unleashes the captivating bounce and synthesized frequencies of 'Suspended Memories', 'Inner Sense' and ‘Deep This’ announcing an undeniable musical tour de force.

The selection continues to remain a step ahead with freshly sequenced productions hitting on all cylinders with their rhythmic thumping kicks, offset shakers, full-bodied basslines and intense melodic prowess, as we drive through sounds in high gear with accuracy and precision. Stan's accomplished talent is at the forefront in top form as the second half of the album showcases 'F-substance', 'Flashback' and 'New Beginning' with fanfares of multi-layered musical complexity offered as treats for all to enjoy

Closing out with the title track, the delivery of 'Emotional Content' is justifiably perfect and proves that our love for all music is a timeless endeavor. As any enthusiast would come to expect, this album is best enjoyed ambiently or loud, early or late, before or after, at home or on the go.

You can expect HOT remixes by (Eelke Kleijn, Add2Basket, Bart Van Wissen, Faces & more) to follow the album shortly…Keep Listening!

Stan Kolev - Emotional Content (Album) (Ready Mix Records)
Ready Mix Records first solo artist album “Emotional Content by Stan Kolev” is also the first solo album from Stan Kolev, with previous releases such as “Gobsmacked” and a joint release with DJ Lion entitled “Stan Kolev & DJ Lion – Foldback” I was not sure what to expect from this release.

So, here i am, knowing I had to make a review today, as I haven’t done one so far this week, I grabbed the new album from Stan Kolev that has been sent in, turned up my new amp and speakers to number 7, I then proceeded to sit back in my chair, coffee in hand, looking out the window at the blue skies and rolling fields, and take in this beautiful aural portrait of soothing, deep, melodic progressive house that warms the cockles of my soul one track at a time.

To describe this in a very british way, the album has a lovely, completeness about it, reminiscent of the vibe at renaissance pre ‘98 with sasha and digweed.

The album starts with Routs (Intro Dub) making use of Bulgarian vocal edits blissfully creating the middle eastern vibe that is carried out through the rest of the album.

I listen to the album and think, ahh yes, “New Beginning” that stands out with its melodic grooving sound, then think well actually “Get There” uses the cut up vocals really well and the jacking bassline makes that stand out, then “Substance” the way it kicks in from the break, that stands out, then “Suspended Memories” that could be the track that stands out most with its lush harmonious intro that draws out, without beats, for over 3 mins, then I’m thinking the title track, “Emotional Content” stands out with its relaxed melodic and very cool overall feeling, then I’m thinking “Flashback” with its slightly more active sounding overall feeling with great cut up vocals, then I think “Even Flow” stands out with its chilled but euphoric eastern chant and old school esq tambourine, then I gave up, normally you buy an album for one or two of the tracks, because they are worth buying the album for, if you use this ethos with the Stan Kolev album your getting about 6 albums for the price of one and not getting the filler tracks as practically every track on this album is worth buying the album for because now I’m thinking there is hardly a track on this album that isn’t just lush.

Stan Kolev’s track Gobsmacked has had a fair amount of airing in the Werbisky household but I think this album has a slightly different sound and feeling to Gobsmacked, it is similar in the grooving bassline and chilled, deep progressive sound but if you have heard Gobsmacked or “Stan Kolev & DJ Lion – Foldback”, you shouldn’t really judge this album on those previous releases.

The album as a whole takes you on a beautiful melodic soothing journey with clever vocal cuts not really ever saying much but adding to the flow and elevating the refreshing sound.

In an age where everyone wants to play minimal and call it progressive house, Stan Kolev puts things back into perspective with the timeless sound that is real, deep, progressive house.

The accompanying press release states this album is “Audibly Delicious” and ill agree with that 100% the sound is gorgeous and definitely music for good looking people, if there was ever any such thing . . . . . . hold on, why am I listening to this then ? ;)

Nowadays everyone has a label, meaning there is A LOT more tracks to choose from and its also fair to say a lot more decent quality track available to buy, so far this year there have been a couple of stand out albums for me and this is now one of them.
