We always had this dream of creating a Warung cd series. For the first album we decided that 16 Bit Lolitas were the perfect artists, considering their history at the club and their amazing tracks and remixes. But above all is the friendship and respect between us and Ariaan and Peter. When we heard their idea for the album, we knew we were right about this feeling.” – Gustavo Rassi (Warung Beach Club, Brazil)

It’s not very often that magical music and a magical venue combine to create something more than just special, where the end result is something ultimately joyous, memorable and timeless. Ariaan “Aad” Olieroock and Peter Kriek (aka 16 Bit Lolitas) the future house heroes from Amsterdam, have been patiently waiting for the right magical moment to showcase their first ultimate collection – a bold combination of DJ mix compilation and artist album – in one cohesive package. Now they have been asked to launch the “Warung, Brazil” mix series, celebrating and capturing the magic of Brazil’s ultimate beach club, they’ve put together an exceptional representation of just what makes them the hottest act there.

Every year, thousands of tourists and summer lovers from every corner of Brazil and from all over the world arrive at the well preserved paradise called Brava Beach, in Santa Catarina State, a place blessed with white sand, green forests and crystal clear seas. A perfectly harmonic blend of music, nature and a gathering of very special people may be the best explanation of Warung Beach Club´s magic. But magic is a mysterious thing, and the 16 Bit Lolitas have captured the indefinable essence across these two discs with their exotic musical alchemy.

DISC 1 is a master-class of poise and elegance, oozing with sexiness, as upfront genre-blurring underground sounds, handpicked from across the globe shimmer and shine, creating the most exotic atmosphere, and capturing the essence and ambience of a night at Warung Beach. From the mind enveloping mellow sonic textures of Australia’s Lewie Day, to the deep melodic minimalist groove of Warbgasm, the stage is set with subtlety and charm. Martin Buttrich’s exceptional reworking of Sharam Jey’s “Don’t Lie” picks up the pace perfectly leading the listener up to the next plateau, where one of Toronto’s best kept secrets (Myers Briggs) sets the scene with his trademark emotional intensity, hypnotic funk, and the sublime synth-driven sound of “Red Cooler”.

When the spine-tingling voice of Jennifer Horne emerges through the mix on “Nobody Seems To Care”, it’s one of those instantly transported to the centre of the dancefloor moments, with 16 Bit Lolitas teasing the atmosphere ever upwards with their own production prowess. The pace continues to rise through the flawless selections and tech-edged groovadelic productions of 20:20 Vison’s Spirit Catcher (linking up superbly with the hot young Belgian producer Maxime Firket aka Compuphonic), and Edinburgh’s own emerging star, Stallos.

By the time Sumatra born NYC resident Astrid Suryanto graces the mix, as 16 Bit Lolita’s select the deeply infectious Gutterstylz remix ahead of their own version of “Distant Bar”, the temperature on the dancefloor is rising higher and higher with every impeccable DJ selection. As they turn up the pressure with Dave Robertson’s take on “The Music”, their own exclusive euphoric hands-in-the-air Warung remake of “Wave Controls”, and the deeply joyous pure sunshine music of “E-Love”, it becomes clear exactly why this Dutch duo are the hottest act at Warung. This is the DJ as an artist, a patient craftsman building the perfect set with emotion and care, selecting music that creates atmospheres as well as delivering well-timed killer blows without the need to resort to the overused and the obvious.

As the finale of DISC 1 approaches with Berlin’s D-Nox & Beckers a clue to the magical musical alchemy of 16 Bit Lolitas emerges, as “Toronto” flourishes in it’s minimalist progressive tech house style, joining with signature elements of techno and trance. It is the blending of all these electronic elements and styles in the perfect formula that makes this DJ duo so special. As the lush piano house finale of their Warung remake of Amsterdam’s Johan Vermeulen’s (aka Interplay) “High Love” washes over with it’s pure sexiness, you just know you are at the perfect party, with the perfect DJ, in the perfect club, at the most perfect place on the planet, and the 16 Bit Lolitas have just taken you there.

 DISC 2 But the wondrous electronic carnival has only just begun, as 16 Bit Lolitas now continue raise the temperature, and showcase an entire artist album’s worth of their own exclusive material in the mix. They often write material just for their own DJ sets, more than able to nail the mood required in the studio that translates perfectly in the club. Many DJs will play some of their own productions but not whole sets made up of their own music. Welcome to the second part of the 16 Bit Lolitas master-class, as they once more show exactly why they are the perfect production and DJ unit.

As the seductive feel-good mellow vibes of exotic opener “Sunrise At Warung” blend effortlessly into the brilliant bass heavy deep tranced-out attitude of “Karmageddon”, and as the sexiness and groove factor are turned up with the gorgeous “4 to 12”, there can be no doubt that 16 Bit Lolitas are amongst the finest electronic producers in the world right now. Their unique skill is in their subtle energy building, as the mix soars, swoops and drops through their genre-blurring productions, capturing the beauty and blissed-out joy of a perfect party at the most perfect club in the world.

They are masters at work. Every track is a unique highlight in it’s own right. As the euphoric rush of “Cabardi Loca” rises and takes the mix to another level, and “More Horizons” adds more bounce and a pure hands in the air moment, it’s easy to see just why the 16 Bit Lolitas are perfect for Warung, and why global superstardom beckons. But they don’t stop there. The intensity of the mix rises once more through the twisted technoid sounds of “Starfish Prime”, the euphoric chords of “The Heartbreak Files”, and the deep throb of “5 to 12”, before dropping effortlessly into the double climactic finale that is “Murder Weapon” linking with “Ceres”.

If you haven’t got Warung Beach Club on your “places to visit before I die list”, you really should add it now. Make sure it’s a party when 16 Bit Lolitas are playing, and it just might be the recipe for the one of the best club nights of your life.
