Only just a year old, and the Amadeus imprint has quickly risen above the fray in the ever evolving world of underground dance music. The Canadian powerhouse duo Prince Club teamed up with LA resident Steve Huerta on a wonderful two track EP called Can’t Let Go. The title track has a very clear sound design, with reverbed vocals floating around precise percussion and a thick, growling bassline before finally giving way to a euphoric breakdown. It’s a top track, and has been getting the nod from Catz N Dogz, Waze & Odyssey, as well as finding a place in my latest Kurtz & Bomber promo mix. You can pick up a free download over at XLR8R.
I’m sure many could relate to feeling that Seven Lions was something truly extraordinary upon first listen. With his self-titled EP due out on OWSLA next Tuesday (10/16), he certainly won the heart of Skrillex and has received both support and collaboration requests from some of the most influential artists in dance music such as Above & Beyond, Armin Van Buuren, Ferry Corsten, and Paul Van Dyk, among others. We have the pleasure of premiering this Seven Lions mix that is a proper display of his visionary talent and unconventional style that is simply unparalleled. In just under one hour, he takes you through his multifarious selections which include his signature bass music tracks, blistering electro-house, and euphoric trance. We’ve also included a brand new track off of the EP, “She was ft. Birds of Paradise,” that is another showcase of his versatility as he ventures into the glitch-hop realm without diminishing his distinct vibe. Enjoy all of this music and spread the word, Seven Lions is just getting started.
Mix tracklist, full EP teaser, and “Days to Come ft. Fiora” stream after the jump.
Coming off the massive release ‘Pari’ with Bart B More, the newly LA-settled Harvard Bass wastes no time in dropping a huge new EP teaser on us to start the weekend. The PLEX EP is forthcoming on Teenage Riot Records (headed by JFK of MSTRKRFT), and features the new original along with three incredibly eclectic versions provided by Ego Troopers, St. Mandrew and John Roman. Ringing true to his sound, the EP title track ‘Plex’ is a whirlwind of techno, driven by HB’s signature buzzing leads and stabbing kicks. The remixes, however, make it ‘something for everyone’ – from Ego Troopers’ dutch house, the chainsaw electro of St. Mandrew and the deeper bass and staggering tribal sounds of John Roman. Check it out below, and grab it on July 31st.
After the release of Peter & The Magician‘s “Memory,” Pierre-Alexandre Busson is back at it under the Yuksek name. The Edge EP contains all of the great french disco flavor that we have come to expect from such a high-caliber artist. If that wasn’t enough, there are also a handful of awesome remixes from Panteros666, Aeroplane, Beni, and KIM to keep it a well-rounded release. Check out the previews after the jump.
To celebrate this week’s release of Autoerotique‘s EKG EP, Dim Mak Records is giving away the special JFK (of MSTRKRFT) Edit of the massive single ‘Roll The Drums.’ Cutting down the melodic breakdown and relieving the vocals from Marissa Jack, JFK sends this one into rave mode focusing on the enormous drum lines, epic build ups and synth leads. Listen and grab it below for FREE!
Not for the faint of heart – watch the subliminally eratic visuals of the “Roll The Drums” music video!
Mexican producer Bufi is quickly rising as one of my favorite artists of 2012. With a distinct disco tinge to all of his tunes, they’re clearly made with the dancefloor in mind. The extended mix of ‘Will Be’ has been a secret weapon in my sets for the last few weeks, and he’s giving away 100 copies for those lucky few that are quick on the draw. The rest will have to head over to Juno and pick up the EP there that was released today on Electrique Music. For those of you living in New York, he has a few dates this month. Check those and the EP after the drop.
UK bass monger Hostage has been a GDD favorite since our inception. From 4 am warehouse anthems to growling sub-bass monsters, he’s produced a wide variety of tunes that speaks of his talent. He has a forthcoming release called the Creep EP on Herve‘s new label named ‘Deep Thrills’. While they might appear more subdued than some of his other releases, they all pack that fat square bassline that’s distinctively UK and also incorporate 2-step/garage influenced percussion lines that have me itching for it to drop next month.
