On one rainy day in Birmingham, Chris Lake (Rising/Mau5trap) and Chris Lorenzo (dirtybird/food music) met in the studio and produced this edit of Chris Isaak’s classic jam Wicked Games. Once they got a hold of the acapella, they knew they had to build a track around it. Everything was recorded using live instruments and they used no samples except the acapella of course. The result is this “Lush” “vacant but absorbent” edit that is something even your mother could dance too. Grab it below for FREE DL!

FM011-2000

What better way to start off the week than with a serving of French techno. The Fake Music label boss Yoann Feynman has teamed up with Monomotion to give us the banging ”Gaza”. Driven by a sinister bassline that would have fellow countryman Gesaffelstein proud, it takes a cinematic approach with a tension-building breakdown that begs for a Ryan Gosling car chase a la ‘Drive’. The Parisian based artists are crossing the pond to set up shop in LA in 2015, so expect to see a lot more from the Fake imprint.

 

pomo

Pomo’s new EP, “The Other Day”, is comprised of eight beautifully crafted tracks, making the EP one of 2014′s finest.  There are no throwaways here.  The entire EP, from start to finish, is nothing short of an electronic masterpiece.  Heart melting melodies that’ll have you slow dancing in front of the fireplace.  Seductive funk paired with your favorite bottle of wine or whiskey.  And deep, dirty Disco to get the blood flowing & the asses shaking.  Stock up on firewood & spirits, lock yourselves inside for the weekend & keep the Pomo EP on repeat…it’s a house party for two.

Pomo – “The Other Day” EP is out now via HW&W Recordings.

GDDemos460

​We’re stoked to announce GDD Demos, a feature dedicated to presenting original music from new and unexposed producers.

We know that getting noticed on the blogosphere is incredibly challenging for any musician new to the scene. Trust us, we get hundreds of promo mails a day from artists and label who are already established.

We can’t promise we’ll feature your music, however it won’t be a crapshoot either. We will go through every submission and pick the best ones and feature them on our SoundCloud and in a weekly post every Friday afternoon (starting next week).

Please note: This is only for serious applicants. We don’t want your WIPs or bootlegs, we want your best original tracks.

To submit, head over to our  submissions page and follow the on-screen directions.

Best of luck!

Prep School Recordings and Ardency are proud to present: Kavsinky – Nightcall (Ardency Remix), released for free in anticipation of Ardency’s “Gradience” EP, forthcoming on Prep School Recordings in December 2014.

“A lot of the music that we grew up listening to focused almost exclusively on conveying emotion. The musicians that inspired us to produce our own records were those that created well constructed musical arrangements and provoked raw emotion. Kavinsky’s record “Nightcall” is a prime example of this. The song is simple but thought out and meaningful. Every part of it was made to convey the brooding emotion of his character. We wanted to stay true to our style while making a remix that did the original justice. Ultimately, the goal of our music is to stimulate emotion within our listeners; we want to make people feel.” – Ardency
