Inspired by music from an early age, Filizola has more than two decades producing and djing. The Mexican artist describes his style as a fusion of his time in electronics, rock, jazz and blues. What has led him to produce as he does today is due, in large part, to artists who have influenced him throughout his career.
Filizola has shared 10 summer tracks that inspired his latest releases ‘Road to the Stars Feat. Roberta Howett’ via Young Society Records and New Soul on Soviett Records.
1. Martin Badder – I Got Get It
“I really like the intro with disco base, violins, and a very funky bass”
2. Shawn Christopher – You Can Make It (Alaia & Gallo Extended Remix)
“I love the voice with that touch of soul. Also, the bass after the breaks really turns me on”
3. Groove Armada – House Musique (Ben Sterling Remix)
“In this particular track, I love the bass line and the use of the filter that gives it that old school house style that makes anyone dance”
4. Claptone – Good Sense (Extended Version)
“I really dig the vibes of the synths and pianos, always keeping the listener alert”
5. Mattei & Omich – Dancer
“It’s all about the funky guitars. I can listen to this one on and on”
6. Detroit Swindle – Cut U Loose (Adryiano Remix)
“The piano melodies at the break make my mind travel to very special places. It really inspires me”
7. Seamus Haji – Give You Love
“For me, this is one of the best tracks of the summer. The tribal percussion fuses perfectly with all that ‘James Brown’ funk”
8. Crazibia , House of Players – Jazz Klassz
