After releasing “Thinking of You” as an exclusive single on Beatport via Scuba‘s Hotflush Recordings back in March, London’s George Fitzgerald has combined the well-received tune (over 130K plays on Soundcloud!) with yet another emotive, ardent club mover, “Nighttide Lover.” The two singles are joined by a “Re-Dub” from Portugal’s Trikk, creating a trifecta ready for the Ibiza season. The EP is available today on Beatport.
After providing a √+ closing set on the GDD™ x Insomniac WIDE AWAKE Art Car last Friday night at Electric Daisy Carnival in New York, MANIK has teamed up with Culprit newcomer, Burnski for the YJG EP — a solid package from the LA-based imprint featuring remixes from Laura Jones and Maxxi Soundsystem (my personal fav), which the collaborators handpicked themselves for the May 27th release. Preview the set below.
Hit up LA’s golden child & poseidon’s schooner navigating legend, Goldroom, to combine forces with on this weeks dirt duty. I can promise funky feel-good tunes perfect for this amazing weather we’ve been graced with on the west coast. Get the sand beneath your toes and a michelada dock-side, because we’ve got 10 hand-selected jams for your listening pleasure.
Not much else needs to be said about Clancy that we haven’t already said before. We love his sound & how he always seems to find the perfect balance between deep disco & deep house. Clancy elevates his game on each new track he puts out. His latest track, “The Way You Dance”, is a hypnotizing deep track with a repetitive groove. Even if you found yourself alone on the dance floor, “The Way You Dance” has the kind of infectious, repetitive groove that makes you just not give a damn, as long as you’re dancing.
“Reverse Skydiving” by Hot Natured (featuring deep house vixen Anabel Englund) has been burning up dance floors this festival & conference season. And, with a recent batch of top notch remixes (featured HERE last month), “Reverse Skydiving” shows no signs of slowing down. While the original & early remixes offered up a sultry, more noir-ish tone, the hot-off-the-press Benoit & Sergio remix offers up a much more playful feel. If there’s one version of “Reverse Skydiving” that can carry the tune right into Summer, it’s the Benoit & Sergio remix. This one’s got rooftop pool party written all over it.
Plunging once again to the pools of the undiscovered, I present to you BONES third installment of THE DEEP END, an exploration into the fathoms of house, garage, funky, tech, booty, and beyond – So dive into this mix and get lost for an hour into the depths of a deeper vibe… Enjoy

Have you heard of Curses! yet? Because if not, you really really need to….As the latest project from a big underground bass name (just try and guess who…), Curses can only be described as delectably dark deep house. I’ve seen him a few times around the NYC underground and he is easily one of my new favorites for 2013. Just check out his latest mix for French music platform, Marble, below and try not to dance…
Hot Natured fans rejoice! Breaking from their tradition of not really doing remixes, the talent quartet recently released this stream of their take on Phoenix’s “Entertainment” and it couldn’t be more delicious. Turning the indie-dance hit into more of a sultry deep groove, this one is definitely going to be a summer staple.
“We’re all big fans of Phoenix. We had kind of decided that Hot Natured wouldn’t do remixes but we couldn’t turn this down. We broke off finishing the album and all got it involved. Our first proper Hot Natured remix.” – Hot Natured
In the spirit of the festival weekend in Indio and the debut of the Yuma tent, I thought it would be more than appropriate then to feature the incredible new remixes of Hot Natured‘s anthemic Reverse Skydiving” with the melodic siren known as Anabel Englund. The original track was a bomb across this year’s WMC, and with the help of Shadow Child, Robert James, and Deetron – it’s on course to be a staple in sets all summer long. The product is (3) great versions that cover the house spectrum immensely (Shadow Child for us takes the cake). Set the vibe for your weekend…

Will Saul and Fink’s London-based imprint, Aus Music, is absolutely on fire in 2013. After pumping out EPs from rising UK producers Dusky and Midland, the label goes 3 for 3 with the new Stash EP from Belfast-born, London-based duo, Bicep. Perhaps I overly use the term ‘vibey‘ while writing about good House music, but this is the only word on my mind while listening to the lead track ‘Stash’ from the 4-track EP. A very obvious 90s House influence shines through in much of this release, joined by a broader, deeper sound reflective of the tastes that they’ve always supported in their own blog, Feel My Bicep. Pick it up on Beatport now. √+
