Fur Coat step up for Balance Presents
“We had a very clear idea of what we wanted to do,” say the duo, whose Balance Presents mix follows previous efforts from Kölsch, Guy J and jozif. “We wanted a timeless mix that you can put in your car, listen at home, or any place that you want, having a story being told in an hour or so. It’s that kind of music that has no expiry date. We mixed the compilation live in Barcelona, at Israel’s house, with Traktor and an Allen & Heath mixer. We really wanted to have that DJ feeling, the actual feeling of it being mixed, not just dropping the tracks on Ableton and mapping automations.”
The 18-track selection features tunes and remixes from the likes of Âme, Mathew Jonson & The Mole, Luke Slater, DJ Koze,Michael Mayer, Barnt, Efdemin and Slam. There are also three exclusive tracks: one from Francesca Lombardo, another from Fur Coat themselves and an Agoria remix of Metronomy.

Late Night Alumni “Runaway” with Second Release Off Eclipse
With the release of “The This This” a little over a month ago, Late Night Alumni gave the first taste of their forthcoming album Eclipse. The track was quickly gobbled up by fans and remixed by prominent artists including KillaGraham, and Arkade label boss himself, Kaskade.
The second bite off Eclipse, “Runaway”, continues to push Late Night Alumni’s renewed style, showcasing the album’s evolution in the process. The track opens with light bell chimes pulsing vibrantly and Becky’s airy vocals cooing “I know you’re a runaway”. The build up seamlessly breaks down into a jumpy, deep house influenced beat. Remaining faithful to their timeless sound, “Runaway” adds a new dimension to Late Night Alumni that will have fans bouncing across the most prominent festivals, dance clubs and stages like never before. All of this reinforcing Becky & John’s mantra that “we are no one thing”.
The music video for “The This This” took viewers on a meditative journey, transporting Becky & John through dozens of exquisite locations around the world, reflective of the universal appeal and connection to their music. Stay tuned for the music video for “Runaway”, which promises to have fans invigorated for what is to come.
Stream “Runaway” on Spotify.
Eclipse is set to be released via Kaskade’s Arkade imprint. Stay tuned for more as June 2nd approaches.
