UK house legend T. Williams has been creating quite a bit of buzz for his forthcoming EP. Today, he released a single with another legend, MJ Cole. Featuring a big bounce from Cole’s technical prowess on piano, this track is absolutely brilliant. Near perfect in it’s arrangement and percussive elements, you’ll be hard pressed to find a better representation of piano-driven UK house greatness. Keep your eyes pealed for the official ’Acoustic Treatment’ EP release on 4/12.

“Put You On”, the new track by London mystery duo PERPLEXUS, is already garnering massive support in the UK and could very well become a world wide smash this upcoming Summer season. ”Put You On” has that missing ingredient that every Summer pool party could use a little more of: 2-Step. One can certainly envision “Put You On” being a staple during pool party season out here on the West Coast. PERPLEXUS add a modern gloss to the throwback sound of 90s 2-Step…it may only a matter of time before the shimmering hi-hats & smooth, soulful vocals of “Put You On” come cascading down from every Hollywood hotel rooftop pool and out onto the streets of LA. The UKG sound is sleek & sexy and one we hope makes its way across the pond this Summer. PERPLEXUS, show us the way…
“Put You On” is out July 6th via Sonus Music Ltd. Pre-order your copy HERE.
The menacing low ends of Hannah Wants and Chris Lorenzo have made their way into Disclosure territory, their remix for “Confess To Me” surfacing today on soundcloud. The original was already one of the harder tracks on Settle but this is just BEAST MODE. Make sure to grab it May 4th on the official remix package!
Here’s how to absolutely nail it: take everyone’s favorite Outkast songs, cover them (beautifully) over a a beat that sounds more Disclosure than Disclosure themselves, throw in plenty of pitch play, blast out, set blogs aflame.
Z, you hereby have my co-sign. Whoever you are.
Is it Disclosure trolling us by putting out something so Disclosurey? Does this mean that they will be performing with not only Mary J. Blige but also with Outkast at Coachella? In The Pyramid? Do I know who Z is?
Druid Cloak‘s record label, Apothecary Compositions, has launched a digitally exclusive imprint, Apothecary Digital Reserve, with the Tail Snap EP release crafted by the Tuff Wax-affiliated T_A_M from Aberdeen, Britain. Running through an avant-garde fusion of grime, garage, and even juke, T_A_M delivers a strong, original offering fit for dark warehouse parties tucked away in an industrial district. Rounding out the EP, the Mixpak/Glacial Sound member, Murlo, and Bad Taste Records’ own Timbah both work their studio magic for stunning remixes. Hear the full tracks on the Tail Snap EP below and purchase on iTunes or Beatport.
There are countries that are known to breed promising dance music talent, but there are few that come close to the quality output of the UK, and the High Wycombe/Leeds-based producer, Kiri, is a prime example of this. With releases on Symbols Recordings and Crown Duel‘s impressive new label, Bear Fresh, he has been making waves in the underground. Now Kiri takes on this week’s guest mix featuring a hefty load of UK garage/bass-styled tracks and new material for a peak-time vibe. Check it out below and keep Kiri on your radar.
A few days ago young UK producer Tourist uploaded a new track for download on his Soundcloud, and it is e m o t i o n a l. Almost painfully simple, with cords that sink right into the deepest parts of your heart and mind, barely-there vocals, and a very UK-sounding piano melody that tugs at you to dance, ‘Stay’ is beautiful and sombre, a true testament to this combo that Tourist has made a name for himself in.
The track is a preview to Tourist’s upcoming EP on Method Records, out sometime before the end of the year. With the backing from Disclosure (who he is playing with at their curated Warehouse Project on Nov 22), and big guns TMWRK and AM Only representing him, it seems as though Tourist is geared to bring his charismatic yet melancholic sound to prominent places in the near future. I gotta say, I’m excited to see it happen.
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!
It’s been a torrid 2013 for our LA compadres, Bixel Boys. Their short but sweet list of remixes/reworks/edits over the last several months reads like a who’s who of pop/R&B icons, both current and past. From Michael Jackson to Robin Thicke, Bixel Boys have put their own modernized stamp on popular (but not obvious) crowd favorites. This time around it’s the 1991 jam “Crazy” by Seal receiving the remix treatment. The remix fuses together sunny West Coast disco & house with deeper, soulful garage giving it a California UK vibe perfect for the upcoming Summer season. POOL PARTY APPROVED.
