Fresh off its premiere on The Magician’s Magic Tape mix series, Belgian duo Arches has released their new single “Want You” for FREE download!

Following the single “There’s A Place” and their recent remix for Kiesza’s “Giant In My Heart”, the boys wanted to give back to their fans a club tool inspired by their first set of shows across Europe. The Magician debuted “Want You” in his latest Magic Tape and again on his guest mix for BBC Radio 1 this past weekend.

It’s bass-laden piano driven melodies provide the perfect bed for the plaintive vocal. The breakdown brings a truly epic moment, bringing together darker synths and bass notes before the percussion welcomes back the compulsive groove.

To get you ready for their headline show tomorrow night 9/12 in Los Angeles @ Exchange, we caught up with the LA-based duo Oliver, who’s techno driven yet disco spirited sound has catapulted them to wide spread support and made them a household name along the festival circuit.

GDD: Your Light Years Away EP just dropped this week on Fool’s Gold. Both ‘Light Years Away’ and ‘Fast Forward’ boast massive techno driven bass lines that reconcile with disco and funk chords and vocals throughout. What was the inspiration behind the 2 tracks?

OLIVER: If I remember correctly, Vaughn had the idea for the main bassline in Light Years Away and we just started building the track around that. We wrote the section that ended up becoming the bridge on piano and the lyric/melody with our friend Ryland. A lot of the time we aren’t really sure what parts are going to end up in the finished song so we like to try a bunch of ideas and see what sticks.

For Fast Forward, we had that little vocal part from some other song that ended up not going anywhere. We always liked the idea and actually tried to use it a couple times but it never went anywhere. This is a great example of having a vocal idea or song title and letting that dictate the direction of the track. We actually used the iPad a bunch on this song. And the final bassline that you hear was like one of 10 that we ended up settling on minutes before having to hand the song in.

GDD: Your production has evolved over the past few years, as you guys have played bigger shows and festivals? Has that had any effect on the productions?How would you describe what makes it an “Oliver” track?

OLIVER: We try our best to play out tracks that will translate well to crowds while at the same time be something we can stand behind. I think that has become something that is a motivator in the studio, to make songs that can translate in a live setting but not sound like everybody else. I think these two tracks are prime examples of us just having come off the road and wanting to have something original to play.

GDD: You’ve become really close with Destructo and the HARD family, both in the studio and on stage… how did that all come to be?

OLIVER: We work with a company called Pulse who manages us and Gary is a close friend of the Pulse team. That’s how we all met and started to collaborate on music in the studio.

GDD: This Friday you guys play Exchange in downtown Los Angeles. What’s your favorite thing about performing in LA and are you excited for such a big headline show?

OLIVER: Yeah! It’s gonna be a fun one. Definitely feels good having all our friends and team there who have been so supportive since day one. We are really excited to have some new material out and also working on a lot more of it. Hopefully we will be able to test out some demos on the night.

GDD: It BONES birthday party on Friday… what’s the worst/most embarrassing birthday memory you guys (each) have?

OLIVER: Oh man, I’m pretty sure every birthday of mine ends in embarrassment. I’m pretty sure we’ve all had those birthdays where people wont stop buying you shots. I mean, it would be rude not to take them right? Haha

The Melbourne native Hey Sam is back with a gangster house heater called ‘Tap That’ due out on his own imprint Jump To This. Here’s what he had to say:

If you use the internet you probably saw the #findheysam campaign that ran earlier this year, in which Hey Sam fought the devastating oppression of having his SoundCloud account deleted. He was in a shamble, he died his hair and went on a quest to find not only his SoundCloud, but himself. The Jump To This label boss went missing for a while, but has now returned, with a healthy SoundCloud, and a fresh EP. Although he has always had his finger right on the pulse, his Short Sighted mixtapes have become something of Ghetto Gospel, showcasing not only the quality of JTT releases but the high calibre of music coming out of the g-house movement. Tap That is no different. It’s a bass heavy, hook heavy PANTY DROPPER!

Something must be in the water over in Australia. The Sweat It Out! boys are always nailing it with not only the originals but incredible remix packages to boot. We’re proud to bring you the exclusive Dom Dolla remix of Benson’s new jam “Hot Mess.” The original (as the Sweat promo dictates): “It’s wonky. It’s swampy. And yet somehow, kinda poppy. And Lex Famous kills it on vox.” Dom Dolla takes the pop driven original and creates a jackin bass heavy trip thats fit for the club. His remix is our fav by far and we’re lucky enough to be rolling out the premiere… fans of Gorgon City, Motez and Duke Dumont will be all over this one.

Welcome back to another edition of the Quick-hitter! We’ve been seeing a lot of UK dj/producer Vanilla Ace here in the States this summer, and wanted to catch up with him amidst his US tour and headlining Afternoon Delight this Sunday @ The Standard Hotel rooftop in downtown LA… we’ll keep this short and sweet!

GDD: Vanilla Ace! You’ve been on a huge US summer tour, most notable just playing HARD Summer and Splash House… whats been some of your favorite shows on the tour so far?
VA: All the shows have been great so far, HARD and Splash house were fun and messy! I also had a great time playing Bardot in Miami and Audio in San Francisco.

GDD: You’ve been hard at work in the studio w/ remixes for Moon Boots, Destructo, and originals with Sharam Jey, Adam Banks and Lora… what else do you have in the pipeline that you can hint us about?
VA: I have two original releases on the way, ‘What you need’ single on Incorrect and the in demand ‘I’m hot’ EP on LouLou players. Both are out in the next few weeks.

GDD: Speaking of, your production is known in the “gangster house” category… whats one thing you do in the studio thats a signature to make it Vanilla Ace?
VA: Only some of the music I make is ‘G-House’, the Moon Boots remix I just did with Barber is definitely more on the proper ‘deep house’ vibe. But to answer the question a signature Vanilla Ace production usually has a killer bass line and spooky/unusual synths/pads.

GDD: You play the “Afternoon Delight” @ The Standard Hotel rooftop this Sunday… whats your favorite thing about playing in LA? And are you afraid of heights?
VA: I’m not afraid of heights but you wouldn’t catch me bungee jumping or sky diving anytime soon! I love LA, one of my favourite places in the world.

GDD: THINK FAST! What’s the last song you’d ever wanna listen to before you die?
VA: Roachford – ‘Cuddly Toy’ , lol

Don’t miss Vanilla Ace alongside Adam Auburn and our very own BONES this Sunday, August 17th @ The Standard Hotel rooftop in downtown LA for Afternoon Delight!
