Last week, Treasure Fingers dropped a wobbly, club monster in the form of Honey Dip. While he reigned supreme for years at that top of the ‘nu-disco’ field, it appears he’s since disavowed his affiliation with the glazed genre and shifted efforts to making some manic house tracks, and we really couldn’t be any happier. Today, we’re premiering the Sluggers remix of said track. After gaining a bit of momentum with releases on OWSLA and Fools Gold, the Miami duo are quickly carving out a name for themselves. Enjoy their free download of Honey Dip below, and get hyped to hear more from these new kids on the block.

Over the course of the last month, UK producer Hostage has given away a free track every week. As a consumer of dance music, that’s one hell of a great deal. We’ve been longstanding fans and supporters of Hostage for years, harking back to the golden era of banging bloghaus. He’s since shifted his focus to making tidy house cuts, all the while keeping faithful to his roots in bass music. Grab all four tracks below, and keep an eye out for the man because you never know when he’ll give away an EP’s worth of tunes away for free.
Right in time for the weekend is 71 minutes of pure vibes, cooked up fresh by Poupon. He’s recently relocated to Amsterdam, and the warmer Summer months must be treating him nicely. This mix is packed full of goodies, and it also includes a couple unreleased tracks by the man himself. Grab the free download & full tracklist below.
It’s an all Aussie affair today with this knocking club edit of Iggy Azalea, courtesy of Adelaide’s
Man of The Moment Motez. In preparation of a US tour that he’s announcing tomorrow, he’s giving away this ace edit of Azalea’s Fancy. In similar fashion to his ‘Gas Pedal‘ re-work, he relies heavily on his prowess of thumping basslines and jacking drums. There’s a nifty little half-time section in the intro that he re-introduces again in the second breakdown, and he even sneaks in a couple of air horns on the second drop just for good measure. Be on the lookout for Motez to be coming to a city near you this summer.
After a brief hiatus, the Kurtz & Bomber duo is back with the second installment of their Berlin Breeze mixtape series. Drawing from their influences that range from soulful house to banging techno, the hour long mixtape is a cosmic journey through a dynamic field of auditory bliss. With all cylinders currently firing, expect to hear the follow-up EP to their last acclaimed Work On Me EP that was released on the legendary Bedrock imprint.
Riding the success of his last EP for Armada Records, Amtrac is back on remix duty for Australia’s Client Liason. His euphoric take on the track is complete with a cheeky amount of saxophone, uplifting strings and powerful vocals from the Melbourne outfit. Neatly placed chord stabs and a knocking bassline have this one jacking from start to finish, however it doesn’t lend itself to being overbearing. Expect the full digital release to be out soon, along with remixes from Com Truise and Knightlife. For those heading out to Las Vegas this weekend, you can catch Amtrac playing at EDC.
The picturesque and often sleepy city of Santa Barbara has recently produced some prominent acts in the likes of Seven Lions and Traveler. Shying away from the typical 4×4 house pattern, they’ve carved out their own unique styles of electronica. Justin Kleiner, another rising producer from Santa Barbara, has just released his Along The Way EP, and the ambient package is an impressive mixture of dramatic soundscapes and thematic drums that were prevalent in early M83 or Sigur Ros tracks. Kleiner has also drawn up a fine collection of artwork that’s tied in with the release that can be found on his site called Auxin. Grab the entire EP for free download below.
While Amtrac tends to find himself on remix duty for most of the year, it goes without saying that he also sneaks in a couple original tracks all his own. His forthcoming release is a two piece EP on the esteemed Armada imprint. Possibly his best work to date, he’s really falling into his own and it’s quite a pleasure to hear him hone his craft. Locked in grooves complimented with some ace sound design make this an extremely well polished package that drops on June 2nd. For those heading out to Palm Springs for Splash House, be on the look out for Amtrac’s poolside set.
