Edited Press Release
Like a mirage on a foot high snow bank, Chus
(Chus pictured left) first ever mix compilation from house music
authority Nervous Records -- Back On Tracks -- is a delicious slice of
hypnotizing, warm, inviting tribal soundscapes laced with a brilliant
use of modern tech elements. This two-disc CD features tracks and
remixes from Danny Tenaglia, Steve
Lawler, Radio Slave, Umek
and many other contemporary house music artists.
Ceballos are known throughout the club world as one of the most
exciting, dazzling DJ/production duos. With their excellent production
works, their coveted remixes, and their marathon DJ sets, they capture
the genuine Iberican sound; a perfect marriage of House and Techno
whose common factor is the unmistakable beat of the percussion.

brooding prog style that was threatening to rule the scene. Chus &
Ceballos’ vision was, and continues to be a much welcomed breath of
fresh air. The Iberican sound is spread finely throughout the two discs
comprising Back On Tracks.

classic sound of The Heller & Farley Project featuring Cevin Fisher
"We Built This House (Fire Island Mix)"greets all who enter the C+C
kingdom of house music.
Things throb along until the midpoint when techno shades start coloring
the sonic frame with tracks including Paul Harris & Alex Tepper
"Terris (Original Mix)", the percussion heavy DJ Wady "Uganda(Robbie
Taylor Afrobeat Dub)" and a tribal remix of Steve Lawler’s "Koma
Koma"from Radio Slave. The sweaty, rainforest inspired tribal sounds
finish out the first disc with tracks from Danny Tenaglia and a pair
from Chus & Ceballos.
The second disc was composed with just half the number of tracks as the
first but it showcases Chus + Ceballos’ability to ride out the music
hard and for a long time. This is your proper peak time foray into the
Iberican sound and a disc that would be a perfect accompaniment to
A heavy disco influence coats the thumping bass of DJ Chus presents The
Groove Foundation "That Feeling (DJ Chus 2010 Revisited Mix)" while it
all shifts a bit tribal techno with Mikel Curcio & JamLimmat "Cha
Cha Cha (DJ Chus Muchodrums Mix)." The balance of the disc takes on a
more vocal house direction with tracks from Made By Monkeys, Richie
Santana & Rob Mirage and Murk’s Oscar G. before Deka & Dave
Rose kill it with the aptly titled "Lose Control (DJ Chus Iberican
Back On Tracks offers an up front look into a current Chus &
Ceballos DJ set. No BS or gimmicks -- just amazing house and techno for
the clubs... and now just for you, too.
