Chicago based 2-piece supergroup band, Hey Champ, has released their new track Cliché for free. It’s pure synth-pop magic drizzled with catch hooks and plenty of pep. Don’t sleep on this one!
Following their chart-topping collaborative EP release Careless, the infamous slime of duo Jack Beats has teamed up with label collective OWSLA once again with an evolved sound (that we’re really happy to hear). Off their forthcoming EP Somebody To Love, their first single off the release “Just A Beat” is a deeper and minimally executed (almost garage-like) production that still rings true to the signature Jack Beats sound we’ve all grown to salivate over.
Jack Beats – Somebody To Love EP
Perspicacious and outspoken, bearded and idiosyncratic — Tommie Sunshine is a staple in today’s dance music community, living in quite possibly the most rapidly emerging “coolest” city in the US, Brooklyn. Not only does Tommie head up the Brooklyn Fire imprint, but he puts together some killer originals, remixes, and edits used by artists around the world.
Today, Tommie has sent over his latest mix, “Walking In A Raver Wonderland,” complete with an abundance of unreleased material including some new edits from the collaborative Fries & Shine, who, you guessed it, is Tommie and his pals, Disco Fries. Pick it up below and find the full tracklist after the jump.
Our friends at LA-based label, SMOG, have just sent over an exciting new release from Brooklyn’s Infuze, and the Far Away EP truly caught me off guard in the best way possible. A well-travelled producer, Eliot Leigh AKA Infuze has made music from an early age; starting out in the realm of Drum N Bass before dabbling in Hip Hop, R&B, and Pop while studying music production in school. Over the years, his initial passion for DnB and Bass music never left him, and his ability to integrate melody and Pop sensibilities within bass-heavy productions grew stronger. Far Away tells this story perfectly, and I hear the possibility of the next Magnetic Man within the 5 track release. For real. Pick up the EP on Beatport tomorrow 11/27 and let me know if you disagree.
Today, we get to premiere one of my favorite tracks from the release titled “Fever;” a lighter, more “I Need Air” side to Infuze. A must-listen.
Last week, Parisian producer Donovans announced the launch of his new label, 11Heads, and I posted his introduction mix which featured a multifarious tracklist including a new production, “Jackin Lovin,” from the newly crowned label boss. Turns out that “Jackin Lovin” makes up one half of the 000 Special Release EP for the launch of the label, and Donovans is giving away the two track EP, Jackin Lovin / Sneaky Charm, as a preemptive “Thank you” to his new label followers. Pick it up here and get jackin’.
UK mystery duo letthemusicplay commenced a new mixtape series in September; keeping with their approach to let the music do the talking rather than their personal statures and previous laurels. Since September, ltmp have made their live debut at SW4 and released their latest single, “& I Love You ft. L-W,” on Hed Kandi, and they’ve made serious headway with the mixtape project, already putting out 4 installments in 2 months. Today, we get to premiere Volume 5 — a short and sweet 30 minute mix featuring golden tracks from the likes of Hot Natured, Disclosure, Groove Armada, and more. Listen below and keep an eye on the ltmp Soundcloud for future additions to the mixtape series.
Brooklyn Fire label boss and GDD™ fav, Tommie Sunshine, is releasing a new EP titled Growth tomorrow via Scion A/V, and we get a jump on premiering the collaboration with Dutch duo, The Partysquad, from the release a day early. “Alright” is a multi-faceted production to say the least. From its downtempo Reggae introduction, the track slowly builds into a bouncy Big Room slammer while still incorporating an irie vibe throughout. All in all, a fun track. Stream above and check out the entire EP tomorrow over at Scion A/V.
After just being featured in our guest mix series last week, JackLNDN has given us a track from his private collection to give out to you lucky GDD™ readers. If you didn’t already hear his edit of Porter Robinson‘s “Language” in his guest mix, you can expect a chopped and screwed, funky fresh disco take on the progressive house hit. Jack always does an excellent job at putting tracks in his own context, and this edit is just more evidence proving that fact. This is the beginning of a JackLNDN‘s weekly track premiere schedule, so be on the look out for these exclusives on the next couple of Tuesdays to come. Show support with a ♥ on the Hype Machine!

French Horn Rebellion, Database, and Justin Faust all in one track, and it’s an amazing convergence. Happy, funky, and light-hearted, this remix from Justin Faust keeps the Pop vocals and jams it up into a nice dancefloor filler. Break out the rollerskates and cocaine!
Make sure to catch French Horn Rebellion tonight at Rockwood in NYC for the Imagem CMJ Showcase!
