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…

The original track’s pumping back beat is toned down by the sultry ethereal house vibes of Rathsman, transforming it into more of a day dream than its pulsing predecessor. Check the whole package, out soon on iTunes, featuring remixes by MK, Tensnake, Bondax, and High Contrast.

Xander Milne’s debut EP “Let Me Fuse” is a House music lesson well taught. The “Let Me Fuse” EP covers various House subgenres, blending classic sounds with modern new ones. The A-side, “I Know You”, features Whiskey Pickle artist Abstrakt Audio. The Xander Milne/Abstrakt Audio combo deliver a PROPER House track that’ll make you wish it was the 90s all over again. Proper club tune.
If “I Know You” is the peak time club track, then the title track, “Let Me Fuse”, is its 4am counterpart. It’s the late night track that will make you think twice about leaving the club & heading home. ”Let Me Fuse” serves up jolts of Acid and flashes of Deep Electro, an excellent recipe for a late night energy boost.
***“LET ME FUSE” EP IS OUT FEBRUARY 25TH VIA WHISKEY PICKLE***
