A tune that’s instantly stuck in your head upon first breakdown, “I Only Have Eyes For You” tows a heavy chugging techno beat coupled with a soulful barbershop breakdown courtesy of The Flamingo’s smash single by the same name. It’s a paradoxical tune from Panic Bomber that is sure to grab the attention of any dance floor, free download to compliment.

The Soul Clap duo have been up to no good lately – in the best way possible. With the release of this highly anticipated original, a track you might recognize from their recent sets, the two have weaponized the DJ community with an instant classic. Featuring vocals from Robert Owens, of Fingers Inc. fame, the tune carries a bass driven melody to accompany the soulful Owens harmony. Get ready for some feels, this track is for real.

It might be the end of Summer but things are just starting to heat up. Literally, and metaphorically, as the Bixel Boys share their best tunes to beat this sweltering heat wave. It features some of the sexiest sultriest cuts around – from RnB to Hip-Hop to Future Bass to that signature Bixel Bounce. Curated for the fine folks at Boomrat – this ain’t one to sleep on!

Listen Here.

Ferdinand Weber has established quite the name for himself in the SoundCloud realm with his silky smooth remixes that glisten in the internet soundscape. Atlantic records and their signee Francesco Yates have summoned the budding talent from Berlin to tackle the new tune from Yates – who saw some studio time with Pharrell earlier this summer. It’s feel good vibes all around as a kick drum backbone accentuates the syncopated synths and a classy hi-hat drives the beat home. Slated for a 9/29 release – we’re happy to bring you the exclusive first listen!
