Last month, we got an exclusive taste of Cosella from Thump via an interview and first-listen feature. Today, we’re proud to bring you the exclusive world premiere of the Canadian producer’s debut EP “In My Roots.” Released on Sleazy G, this three-track collection of is a welcome addition to any g-house catalogue. Each track delivers a powerful punch of that big bass Cosella has become known for, yet each brings a little something different to the table. Enjoy the “In My Roots” EP and keep a lookout for more from this up-and-comer in the near future.
Quality not quantity. That’s been the subtle motto of 21-year-old producer, Durante, who defined his sound in 2014 with the original production, “Slow Burn,” racking up over a million listens after premiering on YouTube giant, The Sound You Need. He followed that with an official remix for London songstress, Laurel, once again laying down his pleasantly delicate touch for a beachy, House take on the original that became an instant favorite of 2014.
Now, in his third outing, Durante goes for a perfect 3/3 with new original, “Full Moon.” Snagging inspiration from House legend Kerri Chandler, the youthful producer puts his old soul on display in the club-ready record. Where “Slow Burn” and his remix of “Shells” exhibited Durante’s ability to make tunes for the sunshine, “Full Moon” highlights the nocturnal side of his skillful production and is fully aimed at dimly lit, peak time play.

We’ve seen many remixes of Flight Facilities thrown around in the past weeks. Guys like Lido and HNNY have both put their stamp on “Two Bodies” to the delight of listeners everywhere. Today, we’re stoked to bring you the missing link in the remix spectrum. Our good buddy and Los Angeles native Modus has graced us with an exclusive download of his take on the aforementioned “Two Bodies.” He repurposes the simple, yet beautiful melody into a churning tech-house piece, incorporating the ethereal vocals in the ladder half to tie everything together.
This one truly is made for the club, so expect to be hearing it at one near you. Speaking of which, you can catch Modus at one of his upcoming Los Angeles shows:
- (1/2/15) Frenzy Afterhours at Avalon
- (1/21/15) Clinic at Couture with Anthony Attalla

Option4 is man of many hats, but he’s proved to us this year that he wears the remix cap on tight – we’re excited to bring you the exclusive premiere of his latest flip on Norwegian band Kid Astray‘s new single “Back To The Ordinary”. Keeping the integrity of the indie pop driven original, Option4 delivers just enough deep end and the result is a subtly jackin bassline and haunting lead. This has winter vibes written all over it, so listen below and bundle up to this one!
Tis’ the season for giving thanks, and that’s just what Dirtybird veteran Worthy wants to do for all you web surfers out there. Staying true to his camp’s sound, he’s taken Odesza‘s future thinking single “Sun Models” and flipped it into a bass heavy house track fit for the club. The melodic vocals of Madelyn Grant now get a jackin appeal, but Worthy keeps just enough of the dreaminess in the original to carry all the way through. Fans of Hannah Wants, Gorgon City and of course the entire Dirtybird brigade will be all over this one. Grab it below for FREE DOWNLOAD!

What better way to start off the week than with a serving of French techno. The Fake Music label boss Yoann Feynman has teamed up with Monomotion to give us the banging ”Gaza”. Driven by a sinister bassline that would have fellow countryman Gesaffelstein proud, it takes a cinematic approach with a tension-building breakdown that begs for a Ryan Gosling car chase a la ‘Drive’. The Parisian based artists are crossing the pond to set up shop in LA in 2015, so expect to see a lot more from the Fake imprint.
2014 has been a busy year for Ghosts of Venice. After a string of releases as well as remixes for Mystery Skulls, French Horn Rebellion and even a very special Valentine’s Day guest mix for us – he’s back with “Make Your Move”: A track that reworks the 80′s original for the modern dance floor, backed with a music video that pays homage to his new home, Los Angeles.
