Our man Le Youth is one of our favorite music makers. He’s an old soul with modern flair. He’s developed a sound that always manages to simultaneously sound classic AND fresh. And he always pulls it off with miles of style. Le Youth is back at it again with his latest track, “T O U C H”, a track that House heads, Disco lovers & pretty much any dance floor freak out there will no doubt fall in love with. With a vocal to die for & a beat that sounds good in any era, “T O U C H” will most certainly touch you in all the right places.
“Ain’t nobody gonna T O U C H you better”
Royal is a D.C. based producer who has been on the come up over the past year. His beautifully melodic yet hard hitting tunes just keep getting better, one after the next. In preparation for his freshman EP, Royal released “Passenger” and “Round Two,” both of which are rapidly approaching half a million streams a piece. The full EP includes three more tracks, all vocally and melodically stunning. This guy’s ability to produce and curate a project of this magnitude bodes extremely well for his future.

In response to THUMP’s bash of G-House via the production quality of youtube viral star Sophia Grace, our aussie brethren Wax Motif has squashed all the animosity in the most epic way possible: taking the tweeny-bopper’s song and making a club ready weapon out of it. Wax Motif has been a solid rep of the G-house movement along with HARD chief Destructo, so we love that he took the Ellen Degeneres backed pop single and made it into a very playable DJ version… Listen below and grab it for FREE download!

I’m very excited to premiere a huge track from London based producer Weiss, today. ”The Light” comes as a b-side addition to “Our Love” — premiered by Mixmag just last week. Released via Toolroom Records, these two tracks make up the “Our Love” EP, and both carry a certain classic house vibe and appeal. The beauty of “The Light” is it’s simplicity, in which the vocal samples play nicely with a full, dance floor friendly bass line. Stream the track below, and read more to check out our exclusive interview with Weiss after the jump.
You’ve probably heard some of tech-house remixes this Los Angeles-based producer has released over the past months. Modus has been on a tear with extremely well-received remixes of Flight Facilities‘ “Two Bodies” and Zhu‘s “Faded,” and just released another original today. Via Funk’n Deep Records in volume 5 of their “Syndication” series, “Volume Up” is a late night club killer — featuring an eerie sound arrangement and absolutely massive bass-driven sections. If you’re looking for a bright young light in a new wave of tech-house production, look no further than Modus.

Legendary East London producer Zinc is already making waves in 2015. His past couple releases have gone really well, and he follows them up nicely today with a remix of The Prodigy. The track in question is “Nasty,” and Zinc does well to infuse some huge warehouse vibes into the edit. A touch of acid peaks through the intricate percussion arrangements, making for a dance floor killer. Then, Spor adds his own flair, sticking to a more classic drum & bass arrangement. Never expect a dull moment in this track, as he conjures some of the most wicked bass and percussion sections you’ve heard this year. Stream them both below!

Over the past year, the gifted vocalist, Mark Johns, has been making quite a name for herself, showcasing her pipes on handful of jams from her Moving Castle squad and more. For her latest effort, she’s teamed up with Australia’s bass music specialist, Sable, for a chilled-out cover of “Ni**as In Paris” by Jay-Z and Kanye West. If her music thus far is any indication, Mark Johns is set for future success, so have a listen and keep her locked.
Possibly the greatest love story of 2014 detailed O.T. Genasis and his love for the coco. Needless to say, there wasn’t a nightclub in the world that hasn’t this track or any of it’s adaptations. Thankfully for us, Aussie legends Torren Foot and Hey Sam whipped up an edit thats more suited for the dancefloor. The original arrangement leads up to a quick BPM switch and a head pounding bass line. These guys are doing g-house like no one else right now, so make sure to check out both of their extensive Soundcloud reserves for more big tunes. Oh, and say thanks for a free download.
