Biggup to these ladies on their debut; we can’t wait to hear what’s next. Buy “So High” on Beatport.
With the start of a new year, we’re excited to watch the emergence of young producers on the rise. The LA grown Kevin Chapman aka FYOR (of former duo NO BODY) has hit the ground running in 2013 with a big room monster that sounds as nasty as its name. His track “Chupacabra” takes an anthemic ride into the bowels of sinister synths that grind over a massive bass kick. Expect to hear this one across the festival circuit this year.
Seems everyone is in the giving mood this month – our LA friend & familiar Hot Mouth has just given away Peacetreaty’s remix of the big room electro monster “Totally Worth It” on his soundcloud. The PT boys put a sinister twist on their version with piping stabs that slap both the electro and techno categories in the face. Tis the season?

Kindergarten Recordings is quickly turning into one of my favorite labels to watch. With past releases from Popeska and Tom Staar, Wolfgang Gartner’s team continues to find the best and the brightest rising talent around, and they made no exception with the young Charlie Darker. “Pacific” has an anthem feel to it with its melodic, yet punchy synth lines; and “Atlantic” starts with the same kind of vibes but is slightly darker and brings out some funky bass. Perhaps they reflect the different, yet similar, feel of the party scene on the opposing coasts? You tell me:
Brooklyn Fire label boss and GDD™ fav, Tommie Sunshine, is releasing a new EP titled Growth tomorrow via Scion A/V, and we get a jump on premiering the collaboration with Dutch duo, The Partysquad, from the release a day early. “Alright” is a multi-faceted production to say the least. From its downtempo Reggae introduction, the track slowly builds into a bouncy Big Room slammer while still incorporating an irie vibe throughout. All in all, a fun track. Stream above and check out the entire EP tomorrow over at Scion A/V.
