The Germany-based label, This Ain’t Bristol, has set out on a path less taken, as they’ve dedicated their curation to UK house music in a region where techno is king. In just a couple of days, they’ll be rounding out a trilogy of compilations with the release of Even More Selections, which features everyone from the label’s A&R Billy Kenny, to Mark Starr, to Fritz Carlton and several more up-and-coming artists who aim to help shape the future of dance music.
In celebration of the Even More Selections compilation release, we’ve been given the exclusive premiere of one of the tracks included – “Now” by Florida’s Mark Starr and Connecticut’s Lux Groove. Listen below to hear their beefy, ghetto-tech-esque stomper that we’ve been jammin’ to all week.
Check out the rest of Even More Selections after the jump, and pre-order it here, ahead of it’s Friday release.
Coming off of one of the hotter Tame Impala remixes to surface over the Summer, Rambo V is back with another balearic jam. This time, he’s gone after Jamie xx and the hypnotic “Sleep Sound” off of his latest album, In Colour. Rambo does well to incorporate the signature vox sample pattern that dances over the original track. This remix, however, features a whimsical synth barrage and a pumping bass line to cross over to the pool party dance floor weapon category. Grab the free download now and enjoy!
No one’s career has — arguably — progressed more rapidly in 2015 that Alison Wonderland. This Aussie future bass prodigy has been releasing track after track, strolling through festival after festival just dropping heat on everyones face. Miss Alison came out of left field with a Hodgy Beats collaboration for her remix of Hermitude. The Odd Future rapper adds that x-factor to the gripping remix that’s sure to rock some speakers near you.
Over the past couple of years, the San Francisco-based DJ/producer Atish has kept me captivated by his live sets and mixes. “Deep, emotive, [and] ecstatic” are all words that come to mind when trying to describe the aural journeys that he takes his fans on every time he plays. Today, Atish delivered his newest mix titled “Intuition,” which comes from his recent introspections. Much like his other mixes, this latest 1-hour offering features an on-point blend of deep and tech, moving between minimal, ethereal, and thought-provoking moments with optimistic and melancholic undertones. Enjoy and download the mix above. The tracklist and more insight into the creation of this mix from Atish himself can be found after the jump.

The homie Prince Fox has a super unique style, and always manages to impress. His first original tune, “Wait Until Tomorrow,” was a cheeky little indie-dance/house number, and he’s just released a VIP version. This future bass-y version of the tune comes in line with the announcement that he’s signed to Casablanca Records. Congrats!
Since first emerging last year, PRINCE FOX has become one of the industry’s hottest electronic dance music talents. He remixed 3lau’s “How You Love Me” [feat. Bright Lights], and it took off on Hype Machine, reaching #2 and receiving an “Honorable Mention” as part of a Wavo remix contest. He would soon be tapped for official remixes of Cazzette’s “Blind Heart,” a Beatport hit, and SNBRN’s “Raindrops” [feat. Kerli]. The latter went Top 5 on Beatport, #1 on Hype Machine, and racked up over 3 million Soundcloud plays. Meanwhile, his remix of Florence + the Machine’s “You Got The Love” is nearing 1 million Soundcloud plays.
Australian young gun Naderi is no stranger to the scene – the Sydney-based producer been making locked in the studio for years working behind-the-scenes engineering and mixing with huge fellow Aussie artists ranging from Flume to What So Not and Carmada. He burst onto the scene this year with official remixes of Daniel Johns’s “Aerial Love”, Fetty Wap’s “Trap Queen” and GRiZ & Talib Kweli’s single “For The Love” all garnering hundreds of thousands of plays and various press coverage including a feature from Billboard. His latest project takes on Canadian live-electronic act Keys N Krates’ most recent single “Save Me.” The Aussie talent manages to masterfully transform KNK’s hit into a more upbeat version while keeping Katy B’s vocals intact. Featuring bombastic synths and a delicate piano outro, the revamped track even further proves why he’s making the transition from behind-the-scenes collaborator to a true solo artist.
Chris Lake is no stranger to your ears, but his latest tune is just that. ‘Stranger’ dropped today via Ultra Music. It’s a favorite of ours already among his warpath this year, as he mentioned to WSJ that 2015 has been “one of the most inspiring years of my life,” not least because of ‘Stranger.’ “I’m in a headspace that’s taking my sound into new and exciting directions,” he says. “I think this record… fully represents what I like to achieve in a dance track, and it’s one of my favorite records to play in clubs.”
The Bixel Boys, BONES, and The Interns are storming SF early next month for the Gotta Dance Dirty Takeover at Harlot SF!

Full tracklist after the jump and don’t forget to RSVP if you’re comin’ out for this legendary evening of debauchery HERE.
London’s Floating Points, known for his underground hit “Nuits Sonores,” has begun unveiling new songs from his forthcoming album, Elaenia! The first of which, “Silhouettes (I, II & III),” was released just under a month ago, and it features an evocative, jazz-electronic fusion that’s as unique as it is inspiring. The second is the newest release, “Nespole,” and on this one, he’s opted for more of an ambient vibe as he leaves drums behind to keep a focus on intricately layered melodies, and dynamic changes that fill the rhythmic void. With his highly regarded live set, Floating Points seems to have shaped his album around elements that could seamlessly transfer into a live setting, so we can’t wait to see/hear what else he has in store. Check both tunes out below, and stay tuned for the November 6th album release.
