Rising LA house/indie-dance artist SNBRN makes his Ultra Music debut with the release of “Raindrops”. In “Raindrops”, the Southern California native carefully balances warm piano chords and Kerli’s infectious vocals with an undeniably catchy synth hook. This expertly crafted interplay of melody results in a sublime piece of house music.
“6 months ago I met Kerli at a small studio in Venice Beach, California. We shared our stories, really got to know each other and came up with a concept that would evolve into the song you hear today. We wanted to create a song that would be powerful and moving yet also something you could really groove to. The lyrics really hit home for me and I’m so excited to finally share it with you guys. It was such an unbelievable experience to work with Kerli and create something so beautiful from nothing. The best things always take time; the wait was definitely worth it. I present to you RAINDROPS.” – SNBRN
Roche Musique continues to lead the charge in cutting edge electronic music with their latest release from Luxembourg artist Cherokee. With a roster that already includes artists like FKJ & Darius, Roche Musique are no strangers to seductive funk. Cherokee’s new track (the title track from his upcoming EP) “Teenage Fantasy” is another lesson in the art of seductive funk. With vocals by Brooklyn artist GIBBZ, “Teenage Fantasy” is sexy, soulful & filled with groove. It’s another masterpiece coming out of the new wave of modern French House.
The always on-point Australian label, Future Classic, released their “Teen Idols” compilation earlier this week which features various of the label’s 2014 releases along with four exclusive tracks from Touch Sensitive, KOA, 123MRK and Hayden James. Hayden James delivers one of the compilation’s standout tracks with his song “Something About You”. The groove on “Something About You” is frisky & upbeat yet somehow manages to be equally hypnotic & seductive. It’s a unique blend of emotions that Hayden James seems to have mastered like few others are able to do. ”Something About You” has all the makings for a breakout 2015 by Mr. James.

The 90′s anthem that needs no introduction, Blackstreet’s infamous ‘No Diggity’ has claimed its Grammy award-winning spot among other R&B greats and since adopted countless remixes. There is always room for one more however, as the east coast bred Figgy has delivered the funkiest of them all. Sampling just enough of the vocal to stand on its own, Figgy pays homage to the original while creating a house driven hit that will have you bobbin like its 1996. Listen below and grab it for FREE download!
Every element and feeling we’ve grown to be extremely fond of by the works of Parisian legend, Zimmer, have found a way to collectively coexist in his newest remix for Brooke Fraser, entitled ‘Kings & Queens‘. In my opinion, this is his best production to date, it’s been on repeat, and keeps getting more infectious! He was able to transform Brooke’s voice into a spacey, yet majestic tone that seems to echo in our souls while longing for something of a future’s past. You can expect Baptiste’s signature horizontal disco touch, however slowed down a bit, with a deeper futuristic sound. Turn on & float away.
We’re excited to have Zimmer moving to LA in January just short of 2 months to write an All-New EP! See you soon bud!
[Bonus]: His latest prior work was for Aussie Psychedelic pop outfit Wunder Wunder (of Miami Horror descent), entitled ‘Midnight Hours‘ is also something quite special, and shouldn’t go missed. Wash it down as dessert.
American Horror Story fans rejoice as you listen to SNBRN’s inventive take on Melanie Martinez’s eerie hit “Carousel.” SNBRN displays a darker side of his infectious brand by effortlessly uniting theatrical instrumentation with a thumping deep bassline. This club-ready official remix is sure to keep you grooving all the way through the night.
“Been a huge fan of American Horror Story, so when I got asked to remix Carousel I couldn’t resist. With dark vibes and a deep baseline I wanted to take this remix to the grave and back. Hope you guys enjoy this tune because there’s no turning back now.” – SNBRN
Amsterdam based Mike Mago has been making serious waves in the house realm, finding unison in deep basslines and future driven leads. His productions have caught the ear of vocal phenom AlunaGeorge, who’s got him on the official remix of her single ‘Supernatural’… here’s what he had to say about the opportunity:
“I was really honored when Aluna George asked me to do a remix. Been fan a AG for ages! I tried to keep the strength and smoothness of the original and to switch it into the style I’m known for. I know this is a really cliche thing to say, but when your remixing musicians you’re a big fan of, it really comes down to that accurate balance.” – Mike Mago
