Our man Figgy is back at it with the smooth House track “Moments With You”, which beautifully blends chopped up Diana Ross vocals with crafty, live instrumentation. It’s the type of high quality + style we can always count on from a Figgy production. Figgy’s hard work in the studio always shines through in his production. He’s also been hard at work on a new live set which makes its debut at The Mezzanine in San Francisco on April 8th with Goldroom.
As expected, Figgy has exceptional taste in music & has been one of my favorite artists to follow on SoundCloud. His reposts are always on point (which surprisingly isn’t always the case with some artists). Unfortunately, the powers that be at SoundCloud have issued him a third strike & his original account is set to be terminated. Do yourself a major favor & follow his new account. You won’t be disappointed: https://soundcloud.com/figgymusic.
In the meantime, get down to this smooth new freebie…
Following up two smashing remixes of Tame Impala and Louis the Child, we’ve got another one from Rambo V. The LA-based DJ/producer has been experimenting with a variety of sounds over the past year, and he’s landed an official remix for Pat Lok to continue the trend. Balearic vibes run consistantly through the majority of his productions, and this track certainly isn’t lacking them. Bouncy bass and creative vocal stabs make this one suitable for any dance floor. Download it now.
LA dance music mainstay, Whiiite, has helped shape the scene in one of the most influential music cities in the world. With his eclectic bass-heavy sound, high-energy DJ sets, and comic book aesthetic, he’s built a legion of followers that have an affinity for harder styles, but he’s recently been showing a slight change of pace. On this remix of “Motley Crue” by the Mind of a Genius-signed duo, THEY., Whiiite fuses the originals catchy hooks with a slowed-down house groove, driven by airy atmospheres and moombahton-esque percussion for a summer-appropriate gem. Enjoy!
The LA based collective Gotta Dance Dirty is taking over Harlot once again! To celebrate, The Interns, have released their live set from last October featuring plenty of house party vibes to carry you through this weekend.

Toronto’s Loud Luxury are paving their way to the international stage with their groovy house sound that holds some serious weight. Following in the footsteps of acts like Gorgon City, Loud Luxury bring clubby vibes with accessibility that comes with an ear for great vocals, refined melodies, and chunky basslines. Inspired by the Netflix documentary, “What Happened, Miss Simone?,” the duo took a piece of Nina Simone’s truly timeless work, pitched it down, and created a hard-hitting groover fused with piano chords around it to stir up nostalgia. Enjoy/download!
Just before boarding Holy Ship! yesterday, Justin Jay dropped his addictive Fantastic Voyage House Party Mix, in celebration of his upcoming tour. With his tour announcement earlier this month, he unveiled his Fantastic Voyage brand/party concept, and filled us in on what we can expect – house party vibes, and a mix of forward-thinking music with songs too weird/quirky for festivals, and other tunes too cheesy for underground warehouses. Additionally, his “Friends,” vocalist Josh Taylor and guitarist Benny Bridges, will officially be joining him on select dates for live experimentation that you may have already gotten a taste of at Coachella, CRSSD, and more. We can’t wait for his LA date at The Roxy on Saturday, February 27th, especially after listening to this new mix. Listen above and head to his website for the full list of dates and tickets.
Insomniac’s Discovery Project project has been releasing some pretty slick tracks on the low. On top of giving budding producers the ultimate chance to play their events, they’re doing their due diligence in pushing the tunes. The latest is a club weapon from Grensta — simple yet effective. “Mistakes” offers an easy 4×4 intro and leads into an off-camber bass sequence that could crush any club. Stream now and grab the free download.
Bobby Nourmand has been not-so-silently releasing some slamming deep house productions on his own accord over the past two years. His smooth production style really sets him aside from alot of the talent coming out of LA, enough so that the Magician’s Potion label came knocking for a track. “S M O K I N J O E” is a midtempo animal of a tune, echoed vocals floating over deep bass and synth stabs. This is probobaly my favorite release from Bobby thus far. If you’re digging the track, you’re in luck. He’ll be playing alongside The Magician and The Aston Shuffle at Exhange LA on February 26th. You won’t want to miss it, so grab your tickets for the show here.
Coming off of their debut album last year, LA-based Nadastrom is picking up right where they left off. Known for pioneering Moombahton and more, this duo has a reputation for pushing boundaries, and in recent times, they’ve been moving deeper in the house music realm with a refined sense of style and cosmic inspiration. Their explorations have taken them to his two-track offering, “Jupiter” & “Chivas,” that brings a fusion of stripped-down, deep driving grooves, ethereal synth work, and a soulful, psychedelic feel that ties it all together. Much like the other releases on Sabo’s outstanding Sol Selectas label, these sounds have been tested and proven on desert dance floors and beyond (watch the Burning Man video after the jump), so have a listen above and pick up the release on Beatport.
It’s not very often I come across a song that makes my jaw hit the floor, but this monster from Billy Kenny & Wongo hits all the right spots. The sound design is to be rivaled by none as swirling sub bass envelops your ears and airy synth pads tantalize the mind. Minimal vocals scattered throughout tie a nice little bow on the formidable package that is sure to be one of the stand out house tunes of Winter 2016. So whatcha waitin’ for…head on over to BeatPort and cop this bad boy right this moment! Purchase HERE.
