Jesse Rose releases a LOT of music. Between his 12×12 series of last year, an LP and remix LP in early 2014, he’s pushed through the summer (pun about to be intended) with his summer single “Fly Tonight” as well as viral remixes of Rufus, The Acid, and of course, Oliver Dollar’s hit of the season, “Pushing On.”
Well, he’s back with another single this time, where he’s joined forces with the new and somewhat mysterious identity that is Trozé. It comes as very little of a shock that Jesse jumped on this tune – an infectiously simple and extraordinarily tongue-in-cheek rap about chocolate? How could one resist? Jesse lends his finely-tuned knowledge of bumping house vibes to the catchy vocal and there you have it. An absolute smash and a real stand-out house tune amongst the masses and masses of bassline house tunes that you can’t tell apart.
I dare you to not get this stuck in your head. It’s out on Monday on Jesse’s label Play It Down – which recently did a takeover of Radio1 (you can listen HERE) and just launched their DripFM channel “Community” which you can likely access the full download of “Chocolate” and other upcoming label gems.
Stockholm’s HNNY has been a favorite for quite sometime now, and he has yet to disappoint. With his chilled-out, soulful house style, he’s been garnering the attention of the masses, and now he’s really taking off after creating this outstanding remix of Flight Facilities’ “Two Bodies” featuring Emma Louise. HNNY always brings a specific vibe to his productions, and this remix is no exception. He has crafted a silky house number around the gorgeous Emma Louise vocals to induce an immersive dream-like state in the listener, so check it out to see what it’s all about.

Now they add to their catalog by taking on Nico & Vinz’ “Am I Wrong.” The Rooftop Boys have applied their own touch to the recognizable tune for yet another crowd-pleasing remix with a strong groove and feel-good vibe.
The Venezuelan duo Fur Coat have spent the last few years climbing the rungs of the underground ladder and are firmly planted at the top. Since the release of their 2012 anthem ‘You & I‘, the duo has shifted gears from sing-along deep house tunes to chugging, techno burners as reflected by their most recent Crosstown Rebels release, U Turn. After a strong summer touring clubs like DC10 in Ibiza and Treehouse in Miami, Fur Coat gave our friends over at Boomrat an inside look into their secret weapons. Stream the entire playlist below.
