Since his recent emergence, the rising tropical house specialist, Bearson, has been racking up SoundCloud plays, reaching over 2 million on his assortment of chilled-out remixes. Clearly, this 19-year-old is carving out his own place on an international stage as he follows in the footsteps of his fellow Norwegian, Kygo. After dropping his remix of The Lighthouse and the Whaler’s “Venice” last week, Bearson is quick to the draw, delivering a refreshing guest mix of sun-kissed house that’ll keep the Fall season at bay, as long as you’re listening.

Figgy eases us back into the Fall season with “You Were Mine”, the first track off of his new EP “Missing You”. ”You Were Mine” has that special kind of mysterious energy that somehow manages to keep you moving while still making you feel completely laid back. This slow burner House/soulful Disco tune is sure to ignite your spark…it’s the perfect lead track to get your fire going for Figgy’s new EP.
The “Missing You” EP will be out later this Fall on Cut And Dry.
The young homie, Durante, has released his incredible piano-laden smash, “Slow Burn,” today on free-release imprint Nest, blowing us away with his soulful groove and spot-on vocals from Chuck Ellis. The new tune is something straight off of UK radio, finding that perfect balance between popular accessibility and driving dancefloor vibes. Download it for free below. √+
19 year old Londoner ETML burst onto the scene last year with his UK smash “Bind Me”. Since then he’s gone on to work with dance legends Basement Jaxx on one of 2014′s biggest dance tracks, “Never Say Never”. And today ETML is back with another smashing original titled “Too Late”. ”Too Late” is classic orchestral Disco with a modern UK kick. It’s sexy, souful + uplifting…the perfect weekend track.
Our good bud, SNBRN, has been on a remix tear as of late, putting his sun-drenched steez on everything from Mark Morrison to 50 Cent to Ace of Base, and today he caps off his string of summertime tunes with a beautiful remix for Indiana’s “Heart On Fire.” He incorporates a lovely chord progression matched with dance-y, shuffling hi hats for a remix that feels equally accessible and (poolside) dancefloor ready.

Miami Horror will be releasing the Wild Motion EP ahead of their sophomore album due out late this year, equipped with remixes from Pete Herbert, RAC, and this retro-vibe take from Chicago’s Rogue Vogue. Strapped with an energetic lead synth and a 90s house hi hat shuffle, Rogue Vogue’s remix highlights the singalong vocals from Miami Horror while incorporating his signature Chicago-infused style.
The Bag Raiders have been on a hot one lately with their latest EP “Nairobi / Savannah” on Modular People receiving major critical acclaim from artists and bloggers alike. After offering up the stems for Nairobi via their SoundCloud, the Drop Out Orchestra have turned it into a fiesta via waveform. With flaring trumpets battling guitar riffs front and center they twist the chugging tune into a late night bonfire with your closest comrades. Offered up as a free download and supported by the Bag Raiders themselves, it’s safe to say this one’s going in the bag.
After being named as one of Boomrat’s Top 50 Emerging artists, Amtrac is well on his way to becoming one of this year’s most consistent producers. His take on RAC’s Cheap Sunglasses, which features the catchy vocal licks of Matthew Koma, sees him skimming the waters of a progressive landscape, tipping the hat to early Kaskade and deadmau5 productions. There are euphoric moments driven by his classy chord progression and energetic arps, but they’re laced with a bit of melancholy from waning strings and moody pads. It’s no wonder that he’s gearing up to provide support for Kygo on tour this Fall, and I don’t think it’ll be long before we see him headlining tours of his own.
If you use the internet you probably saw the #findheysam campaign that ran earlier this year, in which Hey Sam fought the devastating oppression of having his SoundCloud account deleted. He was in a shamble, he died his hair and went on a quest to find not only his SoundCloud, but himself. The Jump To This label boss went missing for a while, but has now returned, with a healthy SoundCloud, and a fresh EP. Although he has always had his finger right on the pulse, his Short Sighted mixtapes have become something of Ghetto Gospel, showcasing not only the quality of JTT releases but the high calibre of music coming out of the g-house movement. Tap That is no different. It’s a bass heavy, hook heavy PANTY DROPPER!
