A mysterious track has surfaced on Spinnin Records soundcloud – a live rip from the recent Glastonbury festival where BBC Radio 1 bosses Pete Tong and Annie Mac did a special b2b set. Who do you think it is? The title font looks familiar…
This is magic. One of the best sets I’ve heard in a while, and I categorically dislike DJ sets. Biggups Mija. Skrillex is the man. Listen.
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.
The young gun, Oliver Heldens, has quickly made a name for himself with his unmistakeable brand hard-hitting house music. With his UK #1, ”Gecko (Overdrive),” and a growing catalog of floor-filler tracks, he’s well on his way to becoming top-tier producer/DJ, and he’s not even old enough to legally drink in the U.S. Oliver Heldens just released a full-length preview of his next single, “Koala,” and it proves to strengthen his distinctive sound, while bringing the energy to move the masses.
A couple of years ago, some friends took me to the famed weekly party, Low End Theory, to see one of the LA beat scene’s emerging artists, Astronautica. Although it was a while back, I still vividly remember her fantastic set, and it was this memory that spurred me to enlist her for our guest mix series. Since dropping her vibey Waikiki EP on Alpha Pup a few months ago, she’s been quiet on the release front, but she’s been staying busy with studio sessions in between tour dates. Now Astronautica delivers a smooth and eclectic mix of jams to help you get through the day in a positive way. If you’re around in LA this Friday, catch her live at The Do LaB event with Dimond Saints!
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.
London production duo, BILLON, bring the pump in their latest release forthcoming on Rinse. The track features a driving kick and sexy spirited vocals from Ashley as the chorus ushers in a crunchy wobble and for a bit of a Gorgon City effect. With support from The Magician in his latest Magic Tape, this isn’t one to sleep on!
On the mellower side of house music, Free N Losh comes through with a wavy marimba filled jam to fill all your poolside needs. Off the new LA Imprint, Next Wave Records, the track features dreamy beach drenched vocals from Cat Lewis and a beat thrown in reverse for an intergalactic breakdown that tugs at the beat like the moon’s gravitational effect on the sea.
The mysterious parisian phenom Tchami has surfaced “a little gift” on his soundcloud today, releasing his tribute bootleg of ‘Move Your Body’ by Marshall Jefferson. An homage to the Chicago house classic, Tchami has sent it to festival fathoms with his punchy basslines and jackin spirit. Grab it below for FREE, and keep an eye on Tchami as he continues to conquer the rest of 2014.
The heat of summer is upon us and a plethora of new music has surfaced after the holiday weekend! Coming off a huge NIGHT BASS last Thursday night, we can’t help but hunger for bass heavy garage craze that’s sweeping DJ sets across the board. Thanks to the likes of Hannah Wants, AC Slater, and the dirtybird crew carrying the torch, we’ve discovered a gem of producers – such as Three Bar.
This EP has been rinsed around the globe as of late and its jacking energy can’t help but get things escalated quickly. I first heard ‘Movin’ when Shift K3Y opened with it @ NIGHT BASS, and the place went nuts. Listen to the full EP below, and be on the lookout for its release next week (July 14) on Huxley‘s label Saints & Sonnets.
