It’s Miami season once again, and that only means one thing: funky track edits catered for late night dance parties. My Digital Enemy has done the honor of dropping a nasty edit of Missy Elliot and their original tune “Bassline Soundz.” That string melody you know all too well is sampled seemlessly in the melodic arrangement. The big bass drops brings in the mashed vox and make for a sick party tune. Grab this one for free and keep your eye on My Digital Enemy.
Next Wave Records has been somewhat quiet for the past weeks, after a slurry of releases from Price Fox, Manilla Killa, Taches – to name a few. The latest is an hour-long mix from the label poster boy Jerry Folk. Titled his “Underground Favorites,” this mix features a selection of some mid-to-uptempo groovy house tracks. Very on point with his own productions, this one has Jerry Folk written all over it. It’s available for free download, so snag this one right now. Tracklist after the jump.
I’ve always spoken of Amtrac’s ability to release killer tracks at an alarming rate, but this is just getting ridiculous. Coming off of a track for Acura and the official release of his “Those Days VIP” mix, we’re now getting this rewokring of “Paradigm.” Amtrac’s “Temptation” mix is certainly that, featuring an absolutely infectious-yet-simple melody, perfect vox sampling and that upbeat house vibe we’ve come to expect from the producer. Stream this one now, and prepare for whatever comes next from this guy.
Los Angeles-based producer Lonely Boy has blasted onto the scene with some ridiculous heaters over the past months. His previous EP coming from Desert Hearts Records, he opted to go with Armada Deep for his latest — “Everything.” And this track literally does have everything — dreamy vocals, infectious melody, and a brain rattling bass arrangement. Everything you’ve come to know and love from Lonely Boy is packed up in this tune, so go grab your copy now.
Last year, France’s Watermät broke through with his hit, “Bullit,” that was one of the biggest tracks of the summer, and now he’s back with a new collaboration with Germany’s TAI as a follow up. Each of them have their own individual sounds, but when they’re fused together, the result is this firing new tune, “Frequency.” Combining driving grooves with big-room appropriate elements, the pair seem to have created a versatile house tune that can crush a festival, just as hard as a club. Have a listen to “Frequency” here – it’ll be released next Monday, March 30th via Spinnin’ Records.
Pretty much everyone is familiar with the soulful stylings of MNEK at this point. The vocalist has taken strides to take over the futuristic R&B game over the past year, and his lyrics are slowly but surely permeating the electronic music-sphere. Sebastian Carter, our bud from across the pond, did us the honor of letting us premeire his take on one of MNEK’s recent bombs. This edition of “The Rhythm” features some sick UK flair and a huge bouncing bass line that would have Gorgon City‘s eyes wobbling. Keep Sebastian Carter in your sights, this guy is the real deal.

With new festivals spawning in all corners of the United States and abroad, it’s easy for an event to fly under the radar, but San Diego’s CRSSD Festival harnessed our attention with its outstanding music programming, gorgeous venue, and more. After an anxious few months, the long-awaited festival finally descended upon the bay front park, and thousands upon thousands attended to experience a summery soirée helmed by some of the world’s finest producer/DJs and musicians like Maceo Plex, Chromeo, Hot Natured, Robert Delong, GDD™ homies Thomas Jack, Viceroy, Bixel Boys, and SNBRN, amongst others. By now, you’ve probably heard that CRSSD Festival was a great success, but in our minds, it was the perfect way to kick off festival season.

Music industry mogul Sean Glass has released his debut production in the form of a Robert Delong remix. While this is Sean’s first dip into music released under his own musical brand he is no stranger to the electronic music community. Sean is the brains behind Win Music whose debut release of Duke Dumont’s “Need U 100%” last year earned a Grammy nomination and chart topping positions across the globe. His disco infused remix of “Long Way Down” is an impressive start to a series of self-branded tracks coming this spring. Stream the tune below and be on the lookout for the full remix package coming March 31st on Glassnote Records.
Over the past three months, we’ve seen quite the hand of remixes dealt by the mysterious guise known as Foreign & Domestic. Blending elements of g-house and ghetto tech, this new project is definitely keeping things fresh. Today, the track in question is a remix of “Bubblegum” done to grimy ghetto perfection. Some haunting vox-pitching and a tough bassline are the main attraction, so I’m guessing you’ll be hearing this played out in Miami quite a few times. Grab the free DL now and look out for more Foreign & Domestic.
