Dance floors swoon.
While Clancy is finally starting to get some major label recognition with this most recent remix of Ellie Goulding, he has certainly remained the UK’s favorite secret weapon among many top bloggers. Clancy’s become one of the most exciting & prolific producers over the last twelve months & is always on point with his original production & his remix work. Clancy’s remix of “Tessellate” is another piece of quality deep house/deep disco, transforming the Ellie Goulding cover into a seductive dance floor track complete with a big Danny Daze-like pulsating bassline. Take a listen & get mesmerized…

A really funny video thats probably great for background visuals during sets, check it out above and look out for the release coming June 24th!
Last year, the Norwegian sultan of swing Todd Terje put out one of my favorite releases that was the euphoric behemoth Inspector Norse. Terje’s follow-up this year comes in the form of Strandbar, which in Norwegian translates to ‘beach bar’. Strandbar dropped today on his Olsen imprint with three versions – Samba, Disko, and Bonus. Stream the full ‘Disko Version’ below.

The clouds have finally broken as HARD maestro Destructo has finally dropped his much anticipated HIGHER EP today, being released on both OWSLA and Boysnoize Records (and making for one hell of a debut). CO-produced with U-Tern, The EP single features a special extended mix, along with 2 monstrous remixes from Tommy Trash and Brodinski, both flexing their styles respectively onto the already anthemic original. The package also includes the B side “2112″, which highlights Destructo’s obsession with technology and futuristic sounds as the bouncing bass ebbs and flows from beginning to end.
Listen below, and make sure to pick up the EP today on Beatport!

Since the inception of our site over four years ago, UK producer Foamo has maintained a spot atop our list of favorites due to his steadily maturing sound. He’s set to release a banging new EP that comes out next week on the 17th backed by the Rinse camp. The title track Release Me will surely be doing the rounds in clubs this summer due to the knocking bass and silky vocals of Lotti. Clearly drawing from his recent work on his Gorgon City project, the future of dance music looks bright with artists like Foamo pushing the envelope and blurring the boundaries of genres.
