After giving us a fantastic guest mix and releasing a new edit of Just A Gent, Vindata comes through with their stand-out debut EP, …For One To Follow, out now on Symbols. From the catchy, goose-bump-inducing beginnings with “All I Really Need” featuring Kenzie May, to the pumping club-ready tune, “Exposé,” that closes out the 4-track release, the rising LA duo has produced this EP to perfection, proving that they are more than worthy of the acclaim that they have been receiving from around the world. With this being one of Vindata‘s first releases, you can expect a lot more of their forward-thinking music to come.

Get familiar with Graff. Once sharing the same moniker as Steffi Graf, past world rank number 1 in tennis singles for a record 377 weeks, the German might be sad a name change has taken place. Not many know about this duo, and they might like to keep it that way; at least for a little. über agent and super sober world explorer, Sir Latane Hughes, teamed up with his best, yet mysterious & sheik mate, Antone Proler, embarking on a journey gracing the lands with their electrifying house sets. Anyone who has seen them live know how special this tandem really is. Flawless transitions, vast creativity, and only the hottest new tracks from their secret vault guarded by sloth from the goonies, always makes for something special.
We know big things are coming from these boys, so we jumped on asking them to make a tape now before they are number 1. They did not disappoint. Clocking in at just over 2 and a half hours chocked full of amazing samples and a very eclectic track-listing, the creativity is unmatched, and you’ll be on grooving’ anywhere. Take this one for a long ride and let the the future legendary beats fill your soul. Be on the lookout for a full original EP in the next few months.
