Straight off of DNB heavyweight Hospital Records, the UK native Metrik delivers “Want my Love” – featuring the anthemic vocals of Elisabeth Troy atop an energetic lead and rolling bassine. With a minimal drop, the vocals soar over the beats creating a sing along anthem and dance floor smasher.
The single just dropped yesterday and has been receiving support across the board – not to mention it’s recent exclusive debut on Annie Macs BBC Radio 1 show. With Metrik’s debut album nearing completion, this is a strong taste of whats to come ahead of release later this year. Listen below and pick it up today on iTunes and Beatport!

The remix legend has struck gold once more with Sam Smith‘s “Money On My Mind” premiering today by the lovely Annie Mac on BBC Radio 1, chopping up the angelic vocals from Smith and laying them atop big piano chords, a multitude of hi hats, and solid, padded basslines. If you’re heading down to BPM next week, make sure to catch Marc next Friday for The Modern Love Affair event! √+
Wankelmut is a subtle star. It’s not common for DJs who sell over 1.3 million copies for an official remix on Sony and garner 100 million plays on YouTube to be “behind the scenes” so to speak, but it appears that Berlin-based Wankelmut doesn’t need a Billboard cover or a headline festival slot to keep doing what he loves. Back in January, Wankelmut released “My Head Is A Jungle” featuring Emma Louise, which was championed by Pete Tong and Annie Mac vigorously on BBC Radio 1 in addition to strong DJ support around the world. 8 months later, the big tune will be seeing a re-release on Positiva, featuring the original accompanied by 6 mixes including remixes from MK, Friend Within, Gui Boratto, Solee, and Kasper Bjorke as well as an extended Vocal Mix from the original producer. The EP will be released on September 15th, but until then, stream the MK remix as well as the original below.
It’s no secret that Hotflush label boss, Scuba, has an adroit sense for tasteful tunes, as evident in his consistent music production and the ongoing A&R of his imprint where artists like Mount Kimbie, Joy Orbison, and Jimmy Edgar have been featured. Last Friday, the lovely Annie Mac let Scuba take over the reins of her radio show on BBC Radio 1, and Scuba handpicked 7 tracks from previous Hotflush Recordings releases and compiled them into a beautiful Hotflush Classics mix. Get dancing to this one. √+
Riding much deserved hype from his widely supported tracks “The Giver” and “Street Walker”, the UK-based Duke Dumont gave the world a taste of his newest single “Need U” recently on Annie Mac’s BBC Radio 1 show. Featuring anthemic vocals from A*M*E, this tune is on course to be a staple in DJ sets to come and another breakthrough for the Duke. Listen below and get busy!
Cyril Hahn has been massively circling the realms of the internet these past few weeks, and with his ultra-sexy takes on R&B tunes and his compelling and slow-driven mixes, it comes as no surprise. After Annie Mac dropped his remix of Destiny’s Child’s “Say My Name” on BBC1, the fire quickly spread, with well over 400,000 plays currently on his SoundCloud link for that track alone. With the surge of steamy and provocative sounds being pushed by plenty of artists these days, Cyril Hahn is geared for a very promising future.
So here we are. For this week’s GDD™ mix series, I decided to nab the young Canadian producer for a nice little mix & interview. With an air of mystery and a scarily-good stream of remixes out, I am both intrigued and excited for what’s to come from Cyril. As the days start to get colder, I can only hope things get steamier But for now, I hope you all enjoy the s-l-o-w-e-d and sensual mix as much as I am, sip slow baby, sip slow.
