Nashville Indie Dance duo, Cherub, will be releasing a 4-track collection titled Antipasto next Tuesday, December 10th, via Columbia Records, with 3 originals including the guys’ huge viral hit, “Doses & Mimosas,” which has recently been remixed by GDD™ favs, The Knocks. Undoubtedly already a party anthem, “Doses & Mimosas” gets a nice Indie Electro re-vibe from the NYC duo — a perfect addition to the trio of Cherub originals on the release. “Doses & mimosas, champagne & cocaine help get me through…” Enjoy the premiere below.

Our friends at LED, Topshelf, AM Only, SMOG, and Massiv are putting on a 3-date mini-tour of Southern California in a couple of weeks, with Los Angeles residents 12th Planet, AC Slater and Clicks&Whistles providing the bass-heavy tunage in Pomona, Los Angeles, and San Diego. Massiv has promised special guests for the tour, and today, they’ve announced that DMC champ, DJ Craze, will be joining the boys for the show at the Fonda Theater December 1st. To celebrate the announcement, Craze has put together a killer mix that has gotten us genuinely excited for the show, with everything from Barrington Levy to Sub Focus getting thrown in the mix. Make sure to get tickets to these shows (Pomona, LA, SD) before they sell out, and have a listen to the wonders of Craze below.
It’s almost Halloween! To get the festivities going, our friends over @ Prep School Recordings just released the LA-based Wilks ‘Bring Me Home’ EP. The haunting vocals of Bria park are accompanied by Wilks deep basslines that turn sinister and sawlike (fans of Soulwax and Disclosure will enjoy). The B-side ‘Get It Poppin’ is a G house track in every sense of the term – Funky and deep, but ghetto and gangster. Listen to them both below, and pick up the EP today on Beatport!
PRIVATE LABEL – NOV 1
This Friday, don’t miss Wilks perform @ Private Label alongside Thomas Jack and Purity Ring (dj set)!

Nashville newcomers, Basecamp, burst onto the scene late this summer with the R&B infused single, “Emmanuel,” which saw widespread support from artists and press alike. Outlets across the board compared the profound, fervent vocals and glitchy, percussive production to that of SBTRKT and Sampha — rightly so as “Emmanuel,” and the other 3 tracks on the debut self-titled EP, scream out to be played live in every way.
As with any great release come great remix packages, and today, we’re happy to premiere our friend Them Jeans‘ deep, dancefloor-ready remix of the breakout single. He’s found a beautiful balance of utilizing the blissful vocals from the original while kicking up the tempo to a nice, grooving 124BPM. Give it a listen below.
Chicago’s Rogue Vogue returns with yet another groovy House cut; this time featuring Nashville vocalist Patrick Baker whose passionate delivery is reminiscent of the legendary Todd Edwards. This is the first time Rogue Vogue has collaborated on an original production with a vocalist — his past offerings have been mostly sample based — but the outcome is a success without question. It’s always nice to be able to sing along to a House track, and Rogue Vogue serves it up nicely with “Until The Dawn.” Download it here. √+
Mr. Billy Scher has embarked on a solo career to complement his budding future with his incredible psyche-rock band, American Royalty. He just dropped off his new tune ‘U.C.Me’ — extremely diverse in its musical genre with hints of Garage that I attribute to his move to Brooklyn about a year ago. If you’re in NY this thursday, be sure to swing by his CMJ Showcase at The Flat in Brooklyn for Doom Dab, the label he runs with Aha Raw. I’m sure it will be smashing good times.
There has truly been some magic coming out of HeavyRoc studios lately. Our friends, Follow Me, gave Equal’s new track ‘Lost In The Evening’ a deep & disco take that is quite infectious. To top that combo off, the vocals are from Gary Jules, the voice behind ‘Mad World’ in Donnie Darko. Quite the special tune and perfect for a cruise.
After a huge response from the premiere of their single “Cold Nights” earlier this year, the Brooklyn-based duo Chordashian have been hard at work with forthcoming productions set to release from now into the new year. We have for you today their follow-up original entitled “Skyscraper Souls”, which takes the beautifully melodic vocals of Marie Seyrat from Freedom Fry and carries them along playfully deeper house chords all the way through. Fans of Tensnake and the French Express crew will be all over this one, so listen below and grab it for FREE!
