Sweet FA’s picks:

Kicking things off with two slow burners, the first by a rising Chicago house producer Savile, who’s set to release his next EP via Urulu‘s new Amadeus imprint. Here’s a remix of Monarchy that Savile’s giving away on his soundcloud:

Monarchy – Gold In The Fire (Savile’s Falling Up Mix)

UK’s Halls of Classic is another young up and coming producer, set to release his ‘Freedom/Failure To Launch’ double A-side on Metamimetic in 2 weeks time. In the lead up to the release, our pals at Meta are giving away B-side ’201′ for free via their soundcloud:

Halls Of Classic – 201 

GDD Exclusive:
Today The Magician sent over his new remix for London indie-popster Wolf Gang. The track will feature on Wolf Gang’s new EP entitled ‘Stay and Defend’, and sees the original pared back and given a tropical makeover. The track kicks in proper around 1.40 and if like me, you’re in a wet and windy London apartment, it’ll alleviate those Autumn blues by transporting you to a beach paradise, if only for 4 minutes:

Moving on to something quite a bit harder, the new Crackboy EP on Cliche is definitely worth a look. ‘Something For’ is a dirty slab of sample driven electro-house that is guaranteed to go off on the dancefloor:

Crackboy – Something For  [Buy it on Beatport]

KiNK‘s most recent remix for Gingy & Bordello is a frenetic piece of 303-driven electro-house and one of the biggest tunes I’ve heard all year. This is a guaranteed destroyer of minds and dancefloors, and is out now on Turbo sub-label, Twin Turbo:

Gingy & Bordello – Body Acid (KiNK’s on Acid Remix) [Buy it on Beatport]

Since Troy Kurtz threw up ‘Surph’ in last week’s Dirt 54, I’ve been giving a lot of play to Rustie‘s new album. Huge fan of the record as a whole, and can’t get enough of this:
