Around this time last year, we premiered the first mix from the Belgium-based house music duo known as Arches. Since then, we’ve continued our support while they’ve released top-quality music like their new There’s A Place EP on Columbia Records, and their fresh remix of Keisza’s “Giant In My Heart.” We though it was about time for an Arches guest mix feature, so they’ve delivered a stand out mix featuring the latest and greatest house music of their own, as well as tunes from Duke Dumont, Redlight, Just Kiddin, Friend Within, Moon Boots, and more.

After paying their dues behind-the-scenes in the underground, the impassioned and well-intentioned Desert Hearts (DH) crew has recently been gaining the clout that they deserve, yet they still remain as humble and focused as ever. Known for their vibe-heavy, community-oriented gatherings where the House, Techno, and love doesn’t stop, Desert Hearts is now widening its musical footprint as a record label with its first successful release from one of the DH masterminds, Mikey Lion, and his friend, Jonjo Williams. The pair have offered up a funky, groove-driven 2-track EP that highlights Wu-Tang Clan and James Brown influences in a modern dance floor-ready manner. Enjoy below and the EP can be purchased on Beatport.
