From the vibe-heavy deep house to the anonymous black & white branding, TÂCHES has become easily recognizable as an artist, both aurally and visually. With a steady flow of originals and eclectic remixes like the latest for Wet (listen after the jump!), TÂCHES seems to consistently hold a place in the internet’s spotlight, always gaining support across the blogosphere and beyond. Without further ado, we’re proud to present this blissful guest mix that features everything from Teen Daze to Dixon.

Over the weekend of September 26th, one of the states’ most exciting new dance festivals, TomorrowWorld, will be descending upon Chattahoochee Hills, Georgia for three nights of revelry.

We roll into a warm September and a very special guest mix to cool us down. Sweat It Out’s newest mystery POOLCLVB put in time-and-a-half to bring you 90 minutes of the house vibes and delivers more than we could ever have asked for. 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.
Todd Terje‘s Inspector Norse is one of the most fun dance records we’ve heard in recent years, and Little Boots is back to bring this track back into the limelight with her sugary vocal rendition. The UK darling reigned supreme in the glory days of
bloghaus, and after releasing an album called Nocturnes in May this year, it would appear that we can hope to hear her velvet vocal chords to cut through some more tracks in the back half of 2014.
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.
