Leo Portela returns to Onethirty Recordings with "All About Love," his third release on the label (previously: "Feel Right" in 2006 and "Get In The Action" in 2008). Based in Buenos Aires, Portela is a rising name in house music with many splendored releases for labels such as Foundsound, Transport, and Unlock Recordings. Collaborating with the gorgeous vocals of Prisi yields "All About Love," a bouncy groover filled with warm house vibes. Melodic yet tough synths revolve around Prisi's processed voice over a tight rhythmic foundation, resulting in an ear-catching tune suitable for feel-good deepness in a discerning DJ's set.

The first remix treatment comes from Moscow's Elastic Sound (Aquamarine, Deepology) adding a deep European flavor to the proceedings. Floor-inspiring horn and guitar parts are added alongside stubby synth pads and percussive vocal cut-ups. The remix was featured in the new Onethirty Mixed 002 (mixed by Atnarko Feat: Jevne on live Bass Guitar), the label's recent 50th release.

Next up we return to the house sound of South America with Uruguay's Marcelo Castelli (Soulman Music, Musik XPress). A heavy, rolling bass line leads the way as rhythmic pads, shuffled hats, and looped vocal phrases combine to make this a nightclub winner.
