Ministry of Sound has teamed up with Defected Records to re-release Oliver $ & Jimi Jules‘ spring smash, “Pushing On,” which has been ubiquitous since its March release — sitting snugly in Beatport’s #1 spot for a nice while in addition to massive Radio 1 support and a proper rinsing at clubs everywhere in Ibiza and beyond.
And speaking of Ibiza, Made To Play/Play It Down boss, Jesse Rose, has put together a lovely “Live from the Villa” remix to coincide with MoS’ August 31st release, equipped with a dramatic intro and a classic piano-based groove that easily transports the listener poolside on some sunny Balearic island. Have a listen to Jesse’s top notch remix below. √+
We kick off your Tuesday with an exclusive premiere to a newer face of Tittwsorth. The DC to LA transplant takes things into deeper territory, casting a remix for Killa Theory’s single ‘Tatum’ on his own imprint T&A Records. This one sends you straight into after hours, perfect for your late nights and/or early mornings. Listen below and get lost in this one…
After just hitting #1 on the Hype Machine charts earlier this week, Australian 2-man outfit, Indian Summer, are back at it with a remix for the soulful club record, “Protect,” from Modular People signee and GDD™ fav, Beni. Taking Beni’s original into dark, Techno-infused territory, Indian Summer create an engaging creepiness with their remix equipped with menacing stabs, pitched down vocals, and a half-time breakdown that sets up a dynamic second half of the tune.
Listen first below, and if you’re in Australia you can pick it up today, if you’re in the US, snag it next week.
Our buddy Doorly has been on another tear this summer — whipping up a GREAT new EP with the legend, Cajmere, for Cajual Records along with 5 new originals included in a new Toolroom Knights compilation, all while maintaining his annual summer residency at Ibiza Rocks. This week, the multifaceted producer continues his streak as we hear an exclusive preview of his new remix of Harry Romero‘s Ibiza anthem, “Tania.” Drifting the Balearic classic a little bit towards the deep end, Doorly creates a reimagined version that evokes a sense of late night/early morning play while preserving the original vibe of the early 00s House mover. This remix, along with two others from Taras Van De Voorde and Romero himself, will be available via Toolroom Records on July 28th.
Catch Doorly play alongside dirtybird boss, Claude VonStroke, this Saturday in Los Angeles at Exchange LA!
Los Angeles-based collective, RIS Labs, returns after a year hiatus with a vibey new EP from multi-instrumentalist, Give In, who we initially heard on our good bud, Eric Sharp‘s, Sharp Cuts Vol. I released on Win Records last fall. Entitled Slow Moves, Give In’s new release boasts 2 smooth, techy originals balancing incisive stabs with loungy atmospherics, creating a distinct soundscape that toes the light vs. dark line.
The EP also comes along with 2 remixes — one from Eric Sharp and the other from mysterious project, Beati Paoli, who leans far to the light side with sun-soaked synth chords and happy-hearted hum alongs. Listen to the latter remix below and snag Slow Moves next Tuesday, July 15th.
Last week, Treasure Fingers dropped a wobbly, club monster in the form of Honey Dip. While he reigned supreme for years at that top of the ‘nu-disco’ field, it appears he’s since disavowed his affiliation with the glazed genre and shifted efforts to making some manic house tracks, and we really couldn’t be any happier. Today, we’re premiering the Sluggers remix of said track. After gaining a bit of momentum with releases on OWSLA and Fools Gold, the Miami duo are quickly carving out a name for themselves. Enjoy their free download of Honey Dip below, and get hyped to hear more from these new kids on the block.
I’m heaps keen on the mysterious and effortlessly stylish act known simply as YNGCULT. Introspective, soulful, and ever-so-funky… what more could you ask for here? Oh, they play live. And they just remixed this atmospheric, futuristic little beast originally by funk outfit Lettuce. Keep your ears peeled, I expect very cool things, the situation is dripping with potential.
Check out the original after the jump!
I always do love a funky acid house groove squelching out of a 303, today is no exception. Sex Panther and FYOR have teamed up to breathe some new life into acid for the mainstage, the likes of which we haven’t seen since Afrojack’s classic “Pacha On Acid.” With a nice amount of support already, it looks to be quite the secret weapon timed for the biggest festival stages– went pretty well when MAKJ dropped it into his Coachella sets, of course. Look to hear plenty more of this one this season, and be sure to look good and wear it well while you do so in the latest by Sex Panther Apparel. Oh, and +10 if you can guess where that sample’s from. ;)
Happy hump day kids!
We have a huge exclusive for you today, as we’re proud to bring you the premiere of AC Slater‘s remix to Motez “Own Up” – coming soon on Aussie imprint Sweat It Out. The already stellar original boasted jackin piano house with melodic chords and soulful vocals – but AC took it the club and gave it the “NIGHT BASS” treatment. The product is a bass heavy roller that perfectly executes its beefy overhaul while still delivering the uplifting tones of the original. Don’t just take our word for it – the remix already has gained support from the likes of Tchami, Annie Mac and the Bixel Boys… listen below!
AC Slater on
Aussie outfit, The Aston Shuffle, self-released their Photographs album back in March which featured a host of solid vocal collaborations with the likes of Mayer Hawthorne, Joel Compass, and Kaelyn Behr along with their Australian summer Big Room smash, “Tear It Down.” Also featured on the record was a vibey vocal number titled “Back & Forth” featuring the lovely pipes of Elizabeth Rose, which has now been set up for a remix EP due out June 27th.
On the remix roster are GDD™ favs, Playmode, who complement TAS’ original with a cavernous bassline built for club play. Have a listen below.
