Gesaffelstein has put thousands of dollars into the music video for his new single “Pursuit” out today on Bromance, and it really shows. The video accompaniment to Gesa’s Techno tune is done impeccably well, creating an interest matched by a simultaneous uneasiness — making it difficult to look away until the very end. Watch it here and pick up “Pursuit” on iTunes.
The belgian dynamic duo Mumbai Science are back on the scene with another forthcoming 1975 EP on Lektroluv, this time creating a hilarious karaoke like video for the B-side single “Models.” Smiley face censored human beings dance atop uptempo light-hearted techno while an auto-type esque woman’s voice chants out the names of super models from around the world. A really funny video thats probably great for background visuals during sets, check it out above and look out for the release coming June 24th!
The clouds have finally broken as HARD maestro Destructo has finally dropped his much anticipated HIGHER EP today, being released on both OWSLA and Boysnoize Records (and making for one hell of a debut). CO-produced with U-Tern, The EP single features a special extended mix, along with 2 monstrous remixes from Tommy Trash and Brodinski, both flexing their styles respectively onto the already anthemic original. The package also includes the B side “2112″, which highlights Destructo’s obsession with technology and futuristic sounds as the bouncing bass ebbs and flows from beginning to end.
Listen below, and make sure to pick up the EP today on Beatport!
It would appear Random Access Memories and Settle are vying for which album can get remixed the most times after both their respective debut’s. Amongst all the chaos, though, you find remixes like that of SLDGHMR that are different enough to hold your attention. Known for their edgy disco sound, they break away a little to create a sensual techno breakdown during Disclosure’s “F is For You.” After the release of their latest EP Reset it would appear SLDGHMR is hitting the production front hard, and if pieces like this become the product, who can complain!

Out now is the latest from Le Castle Vania’s label Always Never Records, an amazing and multi-faceted six track EP from Miami based producers SLDGHMR. I’m really impressed – there’s not a whole lot of young American producers that have finesse and versatility in delivering an EP that progresses from barreling techno to indie/nu-disco type stylings whilst maintaining a sound true to their artistry.
The recent release of Dim Mak Record’s freshman class compilation NEW NOISE VOL. 4 featured many new faces on the scene, one of which being our LA Aussie mate Craig Williams leading the brigade with his single “So Shake”.

The title track of the Resistance EP that we’re premiering today fuses a love of Detroit Techno fundamentals with a new age French twist, providing for a uniquely indefatigable production.
