With a decade of original productions under their belt, including multiple renditions of the famed DJ Kicks series, and a host of LP’s and EP’s released across esteemed House labels (including their own), this Boston duo have been steadily preparing for this seminal moment. Locked and loaded for the 93rd edition of the fabric live mix series, the two span across an unconventional mix of house, funk, disco, and hip-hop, blending genres the way they’ve so famously become known for. In paradoxical form, Soul Clap harness high energy selections but keep the reigns tight making for an exhilarating journey clocking in at just over one hour. Soul Clap will be playing alongside No Regular Play, Scott Grooves, Terry Francis, Egyptian Lover + MORE on Saturday April 13th at fabric London to celebrate fabric93. You can purchase Soul Clap’s fabric93 mix HERE! Read below on what this mix means to the duo in their own words:
“It’s a huge honor to do a fabric mix and we wanted to make it special, and paint a picture of our eclectic musical world, but stay rooted in house music. We have so many memories at fabric and this mix represents the music that we play there, faster tempo, more electronic drums, deep and trippy sounds. But we still believe that mixes should be appropriate to listen to at home, on your headphones, or at an afterparty getting silly with friends; energetic, but always gentle.”
Fred Falke‘s latest release is getting a proper remix package and we’ve got a taste of what’s to come with the premiere of Amtrac‘s take on the iconic producer’s latest original. Featuring LA indie mainstays, Elohim and Mansions On The Moon, the remix from Amtrac channels their ebullient vocals and haunts them with his brooding synth lines. Ripe for the late night, this essential tech house tune will be available on February 26th via Pantheon Musique and will include remixes from Chrome Sparks, Oliver, Ferdinand Weber, FDVM and Wielki.
I don’t know what it is about this song, but ever since I heard it I can’t stop playing it. It’s infectious in all the right ways. The energy is optimistic with guitar driven melodies living in coordination with warm synth chords as the effervescent four on the floor brings the tune home. With early support from Matthias Tanzmann, Jamie Jones, Pete Tong, Annie Mac, Claude Vonstroke, and Davide Squillace, it’s safe to say this is not one to sleep on.

One of the biggest treats on this years HSMF15 lineup was the venerable Chemical Brothers and the return of their live show, so imagine the excitement that ensued when HARD announced it’s one off lineup for a special evening in San Francisco. Accentuated by the vivacious and lively Brodinski (+ more TBA) it gets harder and HARDer to pass on the short trip up North. The event itself is being held at a hollowed out Military Armory now owned by the porn behemoth kink.com (click if you dare #NSFW) and is outfitted for a wild evening with friends in the Mission.
Tickets go on sale Thursday 6/4 at 10 AM and can be purchased HERE.
Don’t sleep on this one of a kind show, who know’s when you will get the chance again!
At the tender age of 19, XO has begun a budding career as a multi-faceted producer, songwriter, and DJ out of the UK. His sound, forward; his lyrics, relateable; vibes, on point. It’s exactly what I’ve come to expect out of the UK at the moment, illustrious coupled basslines with diverse percussive arrangements that accentuate the featured vocalist. For his debut EP, “Through The Night,” a three track feature takes place with a credible range of tunes from sultry sub-soul to to hustling UK garage that is reassuring for his Freshmen release. We got the chance to exchange words with XO after “Through The Night” was released on December 1st where his affinity for Justin Timberlake comes to life, his highlights from the year as a newcomer are revealed, and some possible projects for 2015 divulged.. dig in!

Xinobi, for me, was/is the master of synthesized sounds strung together in unusual and masterful fashions. No two songs really ever sound the same with him, a testament to his creative will at work. All of the above come together in full force for his first ever full length LP, 1975, with one added element: a bit of live instrumentation. Prolific guitar strums, punchy drum kits, and wandering vocals, fused with the familiar warps and wonks that make Xinobi the master of other worldly vibes, make this one of my stand out LP’s of the year. Personal standouts for me were “1975” and it’s vivacious guitar vibes, “Radio Radio” and it’s electronic arpeggio explosions, and “People” for it’s sonic oddities that stay true to the Xinobi way. A lot of western vibes emanate from this project as well as a bit of MGMT peeking in and out of hooks. It’s weird and wonderful and a major accomplishment for the Portuguese producer.. stream after the jump! Continue Reading
