The Knocks are on fire. Their newest single ft. Connie Mitchell of Sneaky Sound System is an electro pop hit we’re dying to see live. Filled with infectious hooks, driving basslines, and of course Connie’s signature sexy vocals, we’re quite mesmerized. Out February 18th on Neon Gold Records.
The newcomers on the OWSLA block Sluggers just premiered their video for the EP single ‘Turbo Fade’, and it is not for the faint of rave. The heart-racing blend of techno and stabbing house is complimented with an equally edgy visual story thats suggestive and intense… But we love that. Fans of Boys Noize, Mumbai Science and Destructo will be on point with this one. Check the video out above, and pick up their ‘Phantom Fade EP’ out now on OWSLA!
This Monday, Finnish feel-good tunesmith, Lenno, will be releasing a remix EP for Never Stop — the 4-track EP that came out in early November on NYC-based imprint, Heavy Roc Music, run by The Knocks‘ B-Roc. On board for the remix release is the young gun and GDD™ homie, Durante, who has completely flipped the title track from Lenno, adding in thick, snarling Electro synth stabs to complement Lenno’s vibey Nu Disco style for a rework that highlights the inherent abilities of Durante while not fully giving up the mojo of Lenno’s original mix. Listen first below and look out Monday for the full release.
Our Manchester man Clancy is back with a brand new EP entitlted “Overdue”. An aptly titled EP – regardless of how prolific a producer Clancy has become, it always feels like we’re due for more. The title track along with another original, “Can’t You See Me”, are exactly what we’ve come to expect from Clancy: dark pulsating Deep Electro/Deep House that will rattle the foundation & the melt the dance floor of any club they’re played in. Toss in a Deep House pumper from GDD homeboy URULU and you’ve got yourself one fantastic EP.
After his recent tour during Big Day Out Australia with Steve Angello, everyone’s favorite wild card Dillon Francis created a monster of a bootleg remix to Angello’s hit KNAS. Only being debuted on his Triple J Radio mix, this gem is a free giveaway also in celebration of his new single “Get Low” with DJ Snake. Festival season is just around the corner, so practice going ham with this one!
Electro/Techno brethren Bart B More & TAI have hit us with some huge releases over the past couple years, and are back in 2014 with a monster of a track called Alkaline. Resembling the high energy and ripping synths of their last collab “Spezi”, their follow up “Alkaline” is a roaring techno ride that will grace this year’s festival circuit from the likes of Boys Noize, Zombie Nation, Steve Aoki and more. We’ve been lucky enough to get the exclusive release, grab it below and hold on tight!
Also, be on the look out for TAI’s new EP called “Just Smile” coming out on Dim Mak February 11th!
Our good homies the Bixel Boys have had a huge breakout year and cap it off with their follow up original EP Bring It On on the legendary NYC based Nervous Records. The title track ‘Bring It On’ is a marching band inspired monster – massive snares and cheer vocal chops tidal wave into a heavy drop of sinister brass band stabs and a bouncing bass line. The B-side ‘CPR’ carries a slower rate (113bpm and literally samples a cardiac monitor) with a warehouse feel of grinding techno/electro. The EP already has received support from the likes of Congorock, Kastle, LA Riots, Tittsworth, Jillionaire of Major Lazer, Harvard Bass, Adrian Lux, 3LAU and many more.

Our friend, Christian Karlsson of Miike Snow, and more importantly Galantis, just dropped off the brand new official video for the smashing single, ‘Smile’ produced by himself & Linus Eklow AKA Style of Eye. The video is clean in simplicity, yet suggestive, and builds in tension, matching the energy of the tune perfectly. We can’t wait to see where this project heads next, but we know it will be out of this world.
It’s friday and we’re getting the weekend on the up turn. Our Miami familiar Damaged Goods has created a monster of an original alongside friends Ruen & Cosmo. The title “Turn’t Up Apocalypse” really rings true to what this production encompasses – taking you on a big room ride of anthemic builds, thunderous drums and menacing drops all the way through. Fans of GTA, Deorro and Laidback Luke will be all over this one, grab it below!
