HarmonikElektronik’s track “Feel the Music” has taken a dive into the deep end with the touch of Mexican maestro Louie Fresco. This tune is already doing the rounds at clubs like DC10 and Pacha, and it definitely rides that 3am vibe. HKEK’s Chris Long, the producer of the original track as well as label boss of Furtive Music, is set to release the track on October 7th with additional remixes from MANIK and Climbers. Louie Fresco, who just recently put out his first full length album on Art Department‘s label N0.19 Music, is making waves of his own after having a solid go this summer at clubs and festivals worldwide. Hopefully this won’t be the last collaboration between the HKEK and Louie because this one left us wanting more.
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
From the vibe-heavy deep house to the anonymous black & white branding, TÂCHES has become easily recognizable as an artist, both aurally and visually.

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.”)
