New Jersey’s emerging producer/DJ, Bender, has been building a catalog of fresh deep house remixes, and in celebration of hitting 10K “Likes” on Facebook this week, he has brought us his take on Zhu’s “Cocaine Model.” He’s taken elements of the original chilled-out house track, and crafted his own piano-laden groove around them for a more of a daytime vibe fit for rooftop pool parties and the like. Listen/download below!
The deep sounds of Copenhagen’s KANT have landed our favorite remix on Blonde‘s new Higher Ground EP. The uplifting melodic original has summer written all over it, but KANT’s version unleashes all the feels – so much that it landed ‘Pete Tong’s Essential New Tune’ this month on BBC Radio 1. If you don’t already know his production, this track is like the the lovechild of Mark Knight and The Magician. Listen below, and grab it when itdrops on August 3rd.
After releasing his outstanding single, “Questions,” and performing at The Hudson Project earlier this month, the NYC transplant, Panic Bomber, continues to build upon his budding career as he readies a slew of releases across house-related genres, while focusing on a new hybrid DJ/live performance incorporating live production. As a collaborator with our own Troy Kurtz on the Kurtz & Bomber project, and resident for the famed Slap & Tickle party in Miami, this dance music aficionado flexes his refined taste for a captivating hour of deep grooves on this week’s guest mix. Keep an eye on Panic Bomber as he makes his ascent in the dance music world.
We kick off your Tuesday with an exclusive premiere to a newer face of Tittwsorth. The DC to LA transplant takes things into deeper territory, casting a remix for Killa Theory’s single ‘Tatum’ on his own imprint T&A Records. This one sends you straight into after hours, perfect for your late nights and/or early mornings. Listen below and get lost in this one…
11 11 rules. We’ve eagerly anticipated (read: tried hard not to give up on ever hearing) more from the duo that is Guy Gerber and Diddy. We’ll never forget their groundbreaking first “Tourist Trap“, and of course, the Jamie Jones ‘Miss X’ remix of it. This little diddy is currently trending its way up the Boomrat charts right up to the top.
Beautiful, haunting electronic music for “demented after hours minds” as Diddy once affectionately stated. At one point he wanted to name the album Ketamine. Never do ketamine. The full length debut is slated for free release this summer.
At once a meeting of two worlds, and yet also a dismissal of those signifiers, 11 11 inverts the recent dialogue between the worlds of hip-hop and electronic music, eschewing simple radio friendly factory fare, for darker, richer, deeper soundscapes. 11 11 is not a project aimed at main-stages and masses, but outliers and after-hours.
Deep and garagey, but still funky with all the feels – the easiest way to describe the production of the Denver based Option4. Following up remixes for Elizabeth Rose, Donell Jones and releases on Nurvous and Night Suppy, Option4 delivers a stellar take on James Curd & Luke Million’s new single with Nah Man! (of Parachute Youth) ‘Say The Words To You’. With accompaniment from Yolanda Be Cool and DCUP on the remix duty, our Denver boy held is own in delivering vibes fit for 2am. Listen below and pick it up today on Beatport!
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.
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.
Better late than never! The Mexicali boys Thee Cool Cats have been on a warpath of releases in 2014 – this month dropping the massive ZIGZAGS EP on Rob Made’s UK imprint Sleazy G Recordings. The tracks on the EP are already supported by the likes of Amine Edge & Dance, Miguel Campbell, Tough Love and Destructo, while featuring a collab with diamn, edits by Sirus Hood, and the cats themselves… listen below and grab it today on Beatport!
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.
