“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!
LA – Don’t miss Chris Lorenzo on May 15th @ NIGHT BASS and Hannah Wants on August 3rd @ HARD Summer!
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.

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.
