From the looks of it, The Interns will be filing all of their TPS reports in a timely manner. The LA-based duo kicked off the project a month ago with the release of their first mix, “The Interns Present: Day Off,” which marked the launch of their bi-monthly mix series and amassed over 40,000 Soundcloud streams. Their newest feature is their monthly “Industry Analysis” playlist series, in which they have gathered 20 essential tracks that the average music consumer may have skipped over. The first edition contains gems from the likes of Booka Shade, Kidnap Kid, Lindsay Lowend, 16 Bit Lolitas, Tom Misch, Overjoy and more. Ranging from the realms of house music to future bass, “Industry Analysis 001″ has a little something for everyone. Enjoy above and if you haven’t already, have a listen to The Interns Present: Day Off below. The second installment of their mix series, “The Interns Present: Black Christmas,” will be released on Tuesday, December 16th, so stay tuned.

Hearing about a new record from Booka Shade will always put a big smile on my face. It’s been three years since the duo from Frankfurt released their last album, More!, but Walter and Arno are back with a dozen new tracks for their 5th studio album, Eve, due out digitally November 1st via Berlin-based Embassy One Records.
Today, we’ve been given the first single from the new record, and it’s gotten me truly excited and energized for what Eve has to offer. “Love Inc” is a delicate, precise club jam. Not overbearing and perfectly balanced, the single displays the genius that Booka Shade has always delivered over the years. As if that wasn’t enough, “Love Inc” will be released as an EP October 4th ahead of the album release, featuring 4 remixes from Hot Since 82, Emperor Machine, Richie G, and Booka Shade themselves. √++
It’s been a journey. Since its inception in the summer of 2010, our longest lasting weekly feature, The Dirt, has brought a staggering amount of free music to the masses, and we’re proud to still be here 100 editions and 100 Dirt Babes in the books. It’s a tough feat to get these tracks together each week (probably why we have some gaps in the mix here and there, apologies), but it’s been an amazing experience sharing music with all of you, which, of course, is the main reason why we’re here.
We wanted to put together something special for the centennial episode, so 11 of our writers have included 2 songs each — one from one of the 99 past Dirts that we’ve posted and any other song that we felt was exceptional enough to make the cut of such an outstanding post. We hope you enjoy these as much as we enjoyed putting them together. Here’s to another 100. Continue Reading

Two of my favorites have come together once again to create yet another masterpiece. When these Berliners converge in the studio to collaborate, it seems as if they can’t help but make magic happen. Founders of the famed Get Physical imprint, Booka Shade and M.A.N.D.Y haven’t worked together on a collaborative single since they released ‘Donut’ last year, but the guys have somehow found time amidst their global touring schedules to put ‘Home’ together. In honor of this release, Booka Shade will be playing their first ever DJ show in Berlin at Weekend this Saturday, December 10th, so if you’re in the area, head over to Booka Shade’s Facebook to enter to win spots on their VIP guestlist!

Pan-Pot‘s most recent endeavor, Captain My Captain (Mobilee Records) was no doubt a tech-house head’s dream come true. Yesterday, the remixes of the EP’s title track Captain My Captain were dropped with impressive names ranging from Booka Shade, Daniel Stefanik and Rodriguez Jr. Each artist gives us their own take on the November 2010 smash hit, from Booka Shade’s dark, driving and sinister remix to Rodriguez Jr.’s melodic, mellow and groovy take.
This EP has something for everybody. So don’t miss this one folks!

Today, Booka Shade are kicking off their North America tour, starting in Montreal and culminating in a mammoth show at LA’s Hard Haunted Mansion.
