First they had a feather fight. Then they did what’s known in the industry as ‘the gettup’ and proceeded to tear a hole into 2013… Now San Fran / Bristol’s finest dynamic duo Justin Martin & Eats Everything return with two more beastly jams:
“Steven Jello” takes us on a deep journey into the groove space continuum. Boasting a strutting cosmic bassline, hypnotic percussion, weeping synth flurries and a timeless house vocal shot, it’s Justin and Eats at their most contemplative. Heads down, feet to the floor, get busy… We have no idea who Steven Jello is, but as he’s inspired a tribute like this, we’re already in love with the man.
“Kong” is so monstrous it’ll have you climbing the nearest skyscraper for safety. You’ll be ducking from the groaning, moaning airplanes overhead. You’ll be air drumming to the gargantuan tub-thumping fills. You’ll be shaking your hairy booty to the snake-like percussion. You’ll be pounding your chest to the rusty organ flourishes. You’ll be asking yourself… Where has this tune been all my life?!
Few co-lab projects resonate with such distinctive shared spirit and sonic camaraderie. It’s a shame Justin and Eats don’t live closer together or we’d have an entire album of this high calibre material by now.
LOS ANGELES – Don’t miss Justin Martin & Eats Everything playing a very special 8-hour b2b set on Saturday, April 5th @ EXCHANGE LA!
The once mysterious, now not so mysterious, Route 94 is back on that production grind with a new release on Defected Records that follows suit to its predecessor, “My Love.” Less anthemic, but equally as club ready, “Tell You Why,” features a bassline that can hold its own on the dance floor as pitched up vocals set a sultry tone for the production. With his “Fly 4 Life” EP out soon on Defected, you can be sure to find this tune alongside other Route 94 originals at the end of this month.
The rising Los Angeles-based duo, Casino Gold, has released the excellent remix pack for their feel-good house anthem, “All I Need,” via Perfect Driver Music. Kicking off the package, our own Troy Kurtz gives us a striking deep house floor filler led by a huge, driving bassline paired with percussive/vocal accents. Ruff Hauser follows suit with a stand-out bass-heavy remix that incorporates an unexpected half-time breakdown, while Evil Twin offers up a piano-laden house groover. The Perfect Driver label head, Matthew Anthony, then closes out the pack in proper form with a more experimental interpretation that features unique synth work over up-tempo tribal rhythms. With these brilliant renditions, Casino Gold successfully revitalizes “All I Need,” just in time for Miami. Purchase the remix pack on Beatport.

Crookers‘ “Heavy” has been on serious rotation since Phra unleashed it last month. Aptly named, the single due out March 23rd hits some lower than low spots, with an undeniable, eclectic Crookers bounce and NSFW second build. Prior to the release, Crookers has called upon Parisian producer, Donovans, for a remix of the bass-heavy tune, and he’s stuck with the #HEAVY vibe while adding some new flavor in as well. This isn’t the first time Crookers and Donovans have linked up either, as you might remember Donovans reworked Crookers’ “Hummus” back in 2011 for the Mad Decent release. Have a listen to the new one below. √+

My personal one to watch for this year is on a warpath of production and his newest creation doesn’t stray from that truth.

Today he dropped a preview to his forthcoming original “Untrue” and it is on another level of feels. I’ll just stop talking and you can just listen below…
