Big tune out this week from the Anjunadeep camp! Lauded by many as one to watch this year, Sydney’s Lancelot has teamed up with vocal duo Antony & Cleopatra for “Givin’ It Up,” a monster, feel-good House track sure to be a mainstay in deep circles this year. Accompanying its exclusive release on Beatport this week, Anjunadeep has commissioned an amazing video from director, Jonathon Lim, for the single, shooting a father/daughter acrobatic team in a sketchy suburb of Shanghai. Amazing track, amazing video. Get into it. √+
These videos of Above & Beyond‘s live acoustic performance from their Porchester Hall performance keep surfacing and I keep melting. Witness the supreme musicianship from the trio and their talented orchestra in this video for “Sun & Moon.”
Topping our ‘Ones To Watch in 2014′, the Bixel Boys jump into the new year with a intensely edited highlight-esque video for their recent release Black December on Sweat It Out! Music. If this doesn’t hype you up for sports and techno I don’t know what will….

We featured Saol Álainn‘s debut single “Nostroke” last month, and I’ve probably listened to it 100 more times since then. The delicate, downtempo tune seems to open itself up with every listen, and now it has a very creative, artistic visual element to go along with it. Check the video above and pick up the 7″ single via No Recordings.
I wasn’t there, and I only have the theme from L-Vis 1990′s SoundCloud and a snippet of a video posted by the NY Times to bring this testament to life, regardless, there was an explosion of artistry the other weekend at Art Basel in Miami as London’s Matthew Stone & Co. took to the stage in a display of gender bending spirituality. The theme from L-Vis 1990 that was featured in the opera is a dark meticulously composed piece that grips you for it’s entirety as an electronic symphony comes to life inside your head. In a world where DJ’s get a pretty bad rap for their one dimensional performances, it’s artists like L-Vis 1990 that breathe life back into the word, artist. Catch the short recap video of the performance and L-Vis 1990′s soundtrack after the jump and see if you can make some sense of the art. Continue Reading

Our friend, Christian Karlsson of Miike Snow, and more importantly Galantis, just dropped off the brand new official video for the smashing single, ‘Smile’ produced by himself & Linus Eklow AKA Style of Eye. The video is clean in simplicity, yet suggestive, and builds in tension, matching the energy of the tune perfectly. We can’t wait to see where this project heads next, but we know it will be out of this world.
