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.
In celebration of dropping his Execution EP on Skrillex’s free release imprint, Nest, earlier this week, the future star, Champion, has given us a proper guest mix that would make his fellow UK brethren proud. Hailing from East London, this producer/DJ flexes his refined taste with an on point selection of the pumping, bassline-driven House that has been infiltrating America. With his stand out productions, DJ expertise, and new label, Formula Records, Champion is quickly gaining the trust of many around the world, and major players in the scene are taking notice.
Over the course of the last month, UK producer Hostage has given away a free track every week. As a consumer of dance music, that’s one hell of a great deal. We’ve been longstanding fans and supporters of Hostage for years, harking back to the golden era of banging bloghaus. He’s since shifted his focus to making tidy house cuts, all the while keeping faithful to his roots in bass music. Grab all four tracks below, and keep an eye out for the man because you never know when he’ll give away an EP’s worth of tunes away for free.
UK House frontrunner, Huxley, did us all a favor this past week and premiered the lead single from his forthcoming EP, The Machine, due out this month on Aus Music. The track, “Oil Spill,” showcases a fresh combination of a deep, pumping bassline entangled in hauntingly vibey builds and stabbing samples. Driving and dark, “Oil Spill” is primed for late night play — I can hear this rippling off the walls of underground parties near and far already. Looking forward to hearing more from The Machine before its release on the 21st.
House music champion Jesse Rose has unleashed his first single of the year (after releasing a full length album + remix album back in February and March), and in true-to-form fashion its a very cheeky and catchy tune – this time an ode to the honorable French house scene. Out now on his label Play It Down, “Fly Tonight” is filter house in its unadulterated glory, its charm and melodies happily bonded with a stomping bassline and drums. The song, along with the super-filtered lyrics, are quite simple in their intent: let go and have fun.
“Fly Tonight” along with a dub version are available now on Beatport, everywhere digitally July 21, and on a very limited vinyl I’m sure you’re going to get your hands on if you’re an in-the-know collector of French house records. If you know, you know…

UK Bass/House frontrunner, Champion, has released his anticipated Execution EP today on Skrillex’s free release imprint, Nest, with two original tracks that feature an all new breed of bassline.

Download both √+ tunes below and keep an eye out on Wednesday for a brand new Guest Mix from Champion.
