The Soul Clap duo have been up to no good lately – in the best way possible. With the release of this highly anticipated original, a track you might recognize from their recent sets, the two have weaponized the DJ community with an instant classic. Featuring vocals from Robert Owens, of Fingers Inc. fame, the tune carries a bass driven melody to accompany the soulful Owens harmony. Get ready for some feels, this track is for real.
Ferdinand Weber has established quite the name for himself in the SoundCloud realm with his silky smooth remixes that glisten in the internet soundscape. Atlantic records and their signee Francesco Yates have summoned the budding talent from Berlin to tackle the new tune from Yates – who saw some studio time with Pharrell earlier this summer. It’s feel good vibes all around as a kick drum backbone accentuates the syncopated synths and a classy hi-hat drives the beat home. Slated for a 9/29 release – we’re happy to bring you the exclusive first listen!
Dr. Fresch is back with a club ready rework of Nelly Furtado and Timbaland’s classic “Promiscuous.” Dr. Fresch’s injects his unique blend of deep, trap, and bass into this remix to bring the pop hit into the context of contemporary future music:
“It’s been way too long since I heard ‘Promiscuous’ played out in the club – I had to give the track a facelift so I could start dropping it in my sets and bring the heat back. The project clicked for me instantly, because of how the vocals lent themselves to be remixed from both a deep approach and a future approach as well. I’m excited to hear this one played out!” – Dr. Fresch

Listen for new and forthcoming exclusives from the likes of Motez, Tube & Berger, Disclosure, ZHU, Moon Boots, Lxury, Billon and many more.
The 16 Bit Lolitas are truly one of a kind, on the block since 2012 – they maintain their individualism in their artistry through the Ajunadeep label, premiering masterful EP’s like their most recent, “Deep In My Soul.” Jazzy, with flairs of trance like chord progressions, and a deep kick to compliment, this music resonates on a different plane. Rare are the times you listen to each note in a song, consumed with wonder for where the next might go, and amazed at where it’s already been. The title track brings enough pump to make 8 minutes feel like nothing but it’s “Higher State” that takes the cake for me. The bright trumpet beckoning is pure wizardry along with the echo drenched synth chords that answer its call. Out now on Ajunadeep, feel free to purchase HERE (not embedded, “” title=”Premium Emo” target=”_blank”>Premium Emo.”)
Whether he’s dropping down the bpm on a broken beat/Hip Hop remix or he’s amping things up on a power House remix, Pat Lok always keeps his listeners on their toes. And here again that diversity shines through on his latest remix of the song “Trigger” by New York-by-way-of-Istanbul songwriter Sirma. Pat Lok’s exquisite remix is filled with plenty of deep bass & driving piano licks to get you moving on the dance floor but also filled with enough sensuality & elegance to get you lost out on that same dance floor. Time to get lost…
Last week, I embarked on a journey to Cabo San Lucas, and the timing couldn’t have been better as I had just received this vibey guest mix from our homie, SNBRN aka Kevin Chapman. With a slew of remixes recently topping the Hype Machine charts, this LA native is enjoying a breakout Summer, and he’s expected to continue on his ascent as he performs alongside other world-class artists at events like Splash House, while producing more crowd-favorite tracks. Now SNBRN has delivered a fantastic mix featuring a plethora of poolside jams that are to be enjoyed well-chilled, whether you’re in a place like Cabo or not.
It’s another tight & crispy dark raver from our man Clancy on his remix of “Float Away” by Yousef and The Angel. Nobody does a big, deep, rumbling bass better than Clancy. Ominous vocals cascading over a pulsating, trance-like beat, this one has all the makings of a throwback rave in the middle of a forest. Rave away.
