Ah, major label obligations… oft at the helm of a musician’s frustration. But leave it to a man like Jesse Rose to channel his frustrations, whatever they may be, into something productive. Here we have “Play That” a brand new tune which the Brit-turned-LA resident has managed to turn over and release in under 24 hours. Says Jesse of the tune:
Yesterday at around 2pm I was getting so frustrated that I haven’t released a track in such a long time because of a major label deal being negotiated, that I thought “Fuck it, I’m going to the studio and making a track today just for my fans and then upload it in the morning.” I gotta say…. it was a lot of fun to do.
You can listen to and download the track on Soundcloud below, and be sure to follow him on Twitter and Instagram for any other cool stuff he might want to give away…

Another Miami duo in the house, today. Dude Skywalker has been makes a seriously groovy disco house record. They’ve packaged up their latest two for a slick EP release, appropriately titled the “I’m The Dude” EP. One side disco, one side funk — I have a feeling both of these tracks will be sneaking their way into many-a-laidback house sets over the coming months. Grab a cool White Russian and kick back to the sounds of Dude Skywalker.

Electronic music is an ever changing atmosphere. In a constant loop of evolving genres and more and more producers surfacing every day, what was once an underground genre, now requires true musicianship to make it. A perfect example, up-and-coming brother duo, Sailors, had been producing a long time as a hobby, but decided to take a chance dropping everything to make it a career. And we’re glad they did. With a clear vision of what they wanted their music to portray, the duo’s sound transports you far away from reality. Their latest original, “Feels So Good”, lives up to the title. Catching your attention from the start, the track travels through piano keys, mesmerizing vocals and a variety of soothing instrumentals. Out on Casual Jams Records, stream the track below. Enjoy!
Sluggers have bounced onto the scene as one of the best new booty-tech producers out. I haven’t heard a bad track out of this Miami-based duo, and they continue the hot streak with today’s release. They set their sights on Aaron Smith and his massive tune “Dancin.” Unlike other remixes we’ve seen that have been very happy-dancey, Sluggers take a harder approach by incorporating a hard bass arrangement and cool tech elements. Stream it below and be sure to grab your copy on iTunes.
