House legend Erick Morillo refuses to make a bad tune. “The Restorer” is the latest release on Subliminal Records, and this one will take you to church. Haunting synths take background to sampled preachings, creating kind of an eerie vibe. A huge bassline cuts in and reminds you that this is a massive house track. Think about Ibiza while you blast this one, and go grab it on Beatport.

Whether you refer to these boys as RÜFÜS DU SOL or RÜFÜS, man do they make a triumphant return. There has been a bit of radio silence from this Aussie trio since have released some of their biggest, more defining tracks like “Take Me” and “Desert Night.” Thus, the release of the first single off their sophomore album comes into open arms. “You Were Right” is a beaute of a track, with some wonderfully ear-piercing synths and a charming melody. If this is any indication of the rest of the album, we’re in for a treat from RÜFÜS DU SOL.

From the radio waves to the festival stages, Fono‘s house anthem “Real Joy” has been rinsed far and wide this year. The single finally got it’s highly anticipated remix package, flexing a club edit from Duke Dumont, a junglist loving take from TC, and our favorite – a chunky jackin flip from house mogul Chris Lake and mysterious collaborator Rrotik. Lake & Rrotik take the cake on this one, giving the original a fat low end and dicing the vocal into its own instrument. Early support for their remix already comes from Gorgon City, Treasure Fingers, Pete Tong, Annie Mac, Moguai, Danny Howard, EDX, Max Vangeli, Paul Oakenfold, and Fono himself.

Figgy is no stranger to the GottaDanceDirty feed. This producers dreamy tunes have a tendency to float just nice through the airwaves, perfect Summer jams. His latest remix is one of the official sort, for none other than ASTR. “Activate Me” has seen some noteable remix attention from the likes of Darkchild and LEFTI, but this one is something else. Super smooth synths dance atop the vocals, get ready for a nice ride.

Our favorite Parisian, Zimmer, worked with Norwegian singer Emilie Adams for “Escape”. It’s the first track of his “Coming of Age” EP to be released July 10 on Roche Musique. Escape is deep, with warm tones and ethereal vocals, backed by a catchy piano line, before the drop speeds things up. We’re looking forward to hear the rest of the EP.
SIVIK‘s bass-forward vocal piece “U Got” has been getting some pretty nice remix support. First edited by XXYYXX, the track has now been transformed by the ever-groovy JackLNDN. The R&B influened tune gets a little tempo boost accompanied by a rolling bassline. Ghostly vocal sampling carries the house tune lightly over said bass stabs. A really nice remix effort without seeming forced, this track already has accrued well over 100K streams in under a week. Check out the track now, and throw it a heart on Hypem while you’re at it.

Eekkoo has one of my new favorite producers ever since I laid ears on his Jamie xx remix. His unique style fuses house and techno elements, for a warm-yet-dark, bass heavy result. His latest is a collaboration with Flowers and Sea Creatures called “4th Bell.” Likely named because of the sampled bell chimes at the end of each measure, this track is a killer. Vocals, melody, bass, vibe, all on point. Leaps & bounds above the rest of my Soundcloud feed right now. Buy it on Beatport.
