The unique productions of Berlin’s David August are difficult to classify. No matter the BPM or style, he always manages to create something balanced and beautiful. Having only released a handful of remixes over the past year since his “TIMES” album release, August decided to throw us a freebie. ”Her Myth” is an ambient-yet-melodic piece that probably shouldn’t be available for free. This gorgeous track is simple, elegant, groovy at times. Enjoy as the bass line and percussion elements get sprinkle in one by one, then grab the free download.
One of our favorite dirtybirds, Justin Jay, is currently finishing his last semester at University of Southern California, but that isn’t stopping him from releasing outstanding productions. His latest effort is a brooding remix of Disciples’ hit record, “They Don’t Know,” that takes a dive into the shadowy realms of deep house that were never fully explored by this gifted 22-year-old. With this remix release on February 22nd via Pete Tong’s FFRR imprint on top of a forthcoming EP on Catz ‘n Dogz’ Pets Recordings, major upcoming gigs like Holy Ship!, and more, Justin Jay is prepping for an enviable last semester and a massive 2015.

Royal is a D.C. based producer who has been on the come up over the past year. His beautifully melodic yet hard hitting tunes just keep getting better, one after the next. In preparation for his freshman EP, Royal released “Passenger” and “Round Two,” both of which are rapidly approaching half a million streams a piece. The full EP includes three more tracks, all vocally and melodically stunning. This guy’s ability to produce and curate a project of this magnitude bodes extremely well for his future.
In response to THUMP’s bash of G-House via the production quality of youtube viral star Sophia Grace, our aussie brethren Wax Motif has squashed all the animosity in the most epic way possible: taking the tweeny-bopper’s song and making a club ready weapon out of it. Wax Motif has been a solid rep of the G-house movement along with HARD chief Destructo, so we love that he took the Ellen Degeneres backed pop single and made it into a very playable DJ version… Listen below and grab it for FREE download!
