ETML

19 year old Londoner ETML burst onto the scene last year with his UK smash “Bind Me”.  Since then he’s gone on to work with dance legends Basement Jaxx on one of 2014′s biggest dance tracks, “Never Say Never”.  And today ETML is back with another smashing original titled “Too Late”.  ”Too Late” is classic orchestral Disco with a modern UK kick.  It’s sexy, souful + uplifting…the perfect weekend track.

say lou lou

Alex Metric.  Such a well rounded chap.  In 2014 alone, he’s given us bounce House bangers like “Hope” & “My Heart Weighs A Ton”, he’s made us feel the groove with Oliver on “Galaxy” and he’s taken us intergalactic on his Electro/Disco/House collaborations with Yuksek (under their moniker The Alexanders).  Today he’s back, building up some of that old Indie street cred with a brand new remix of “Games for Girls” by Say Lou Lou.  It’s fun times on the dance floor on this Indie Electro remix & proof that when it comes to genres, Alex Metric knows no limits.  A well round chap, indeed.

Dornik
The glossy sounds of Summer are slowly starting to fade, making way for the moodier temperament of Fall.  And “On My Mind”, the brand new track from Dornik, is the perfect bridge for this seasonal change.  ”On My Mind” captures both the playfulness of Summer and the seductiveness of Fall.  Dornik’s brand of cosmic R&B will have you melting upon first listen.  It’s a dreamy, alluring sound that points toward the future while never forgetting its R&B influences from the past.  The obsession is real on this one.  Listen for yourself…

Forthcoming on PMR Records.

here we go
“Here We Go” is the aptly titled new track by our good friend Betatraxx.  With its cheer punk chants & festival style energy, “Here We Go” is the perfect track to get your rave revved up & ready to go.  As a producer’s producer, Betatraxx is always testing the boundaries of genre, never afraid to add droplets of Bass, Acid, Trance & House whenever & wherever he so chooses and just as he does here on his new original track.  ”Here We Go” is a refreshing blast of genre bending future Electro.

sirma

Whether he’s dropping down the bpm on a broken beat/Hip Hop remix or he’s amping things up on a power House remix, Pat Lok always keeps his listeners on their toes.  And here again that diversity shines through on his latest remix of the song “Trigger” by New York-by-way-of-Istanbul songwriter Sirma.  Pat Lok’s exquisite remix is filled with plenty of deep bass & driving piano licks to get you moving on the dance floor but also filled with enough sensuality & elegance to get you lost out on that same dance floor.  Time to get lost…

cinderella girls

As a kid, I grew up on hair metal, so when I heard that ROOM8 did a cover of Cinderella’s 1986 ballad “Nobody’s Fool”, excitement (and curiosity) levels were high.  ROOM8 did not disappoint with their daring remix featuring the stylish vocals of Jesika Miller and much welcomed guitar work of Giorgio Moroder guitarist Richie Zito.  The collaboration hits on all levels, taking the glam rock classic & turning it into a modern piece of sci-fi electrofunk that Mr. Moroder himself would be damn proud of.

GLAM HOUSE!

Auxiliary tha Masterfader’s new remix of “Hey Baby” by That Girl With Dark Eyes is modern Electrofunk with a throwback feel, harking back to the Sheila E./Prince glory days (although the backing male vocal seems more The Revolution than Prince).  The remix collaboration of Dutch producer Auxiliary tha Masterfader and San Francisco producer That Girl With Dark Eyes came to fruition after the pair bonded over a love of analog equipment.  This intercontinental love fest proves that funk knows no boundaries.  Oh hey baby…

clancy

It’s another tight & crispy dark raver from our man Clancy on his remix of “Float Away” by Yousef and The Angel.  Nobody does a big, deep, rumbling bass better than Clancy.  Ominous vocals cascading over a pulsating, trance-like beat, this one has all the makings of a throwback rave in the middle of a forest.  Rave away.

Out now via FFRR.
