Are you a fan of Emancipator or other like-minded downtempo artists? Look no further than this outstanding new release from the Southern California native, Randy Seidman, and Infected Mushroom‘s guitarist, Tommy Cunningham. After being release last week, the Sunset Honey EP has already made its way up Beatport’s Chill-out chart to reach the #2 position. With the EP’s two tracks, “Sunset Honey” and “Dream Express,” generating a blissful, ethereal atmosphere accented with intricately woven organic sounds and exquisite electronic production, it is to no surprise that it has been a well-received offering. Check out the Sunset Honey EP below.

Last month the good people at Dirtybird uploaded a preview of a monstrous EP by Breach. Since then the tracks have received major support from BBC Radio 1/1xtra DJ’s, and have been argued (by us of course) as the hottest tunes from Miami. Take a listen and go grab yourself a copy!

C2C is a four member deep french turntable group that has been around since ’98, winning everything from the World DJ Championships for Disco, to the European Border Breakers award in 2013 for best new European music act. With only one official album out in 2012, they have remained relatively quiet on the production front. This remix is for Vitalic’s “Fade Away” EP coming out on March 25th and it features their signature disco bounce and electro edge that creates a sublime environment to let loose and dance to. For those unfamiliar with this group, you might know them best from their track that’s being used on a Dr. Pepper ad running right now, or their name as featured on the Coachella lineup this year.
For a guy from Kentucky by way of Miami, Amtrac surely has an impeccably tight grasp on modern day dance music. Adding to his discography which already includes an album, some EPs, and about 30 remixes comes a four track EP titled The Scheme via Super Music Group. What really sticks out on this EP is Amtrac’s close attention to detail in the looping and pitch shifting of his vocals, which are very reminiscent to the legend MK‘s. If you’re going to be in Miami for WMC in March, Amtrac will be playing our party at Bardot alongside Alex Metric, Oliver, Aeroplane, UZ, and Destructo. You can pick up pre-sale tickets for that event here.
If you’re unfamiliar with Ali Love, then before diving further into this post, I’d suggest first listening to Benediction, last year’s unofficial feel-good anthem of the year. Ali switches over from the Hot Creations camp to the equally reputed Crosstown Rebels imprint for ‘Emperor’. The package includes a dub and two remixes, my favorite of which comes from Ellum front man Maceo Plex, who takes an otherwise good track and catapults it into the ‘timeless’ category. The release is slated for early March, just in time for many a WMC arsenal.
Last week, the Toronto-based live trap maestros, Keys N Krates, released their well-crafted Lucid Dreams EP presented by Dim Mak and Trap-A-Holics. The trio never fails to impress with perfect musical execution showcasing their distinctive style that features a bass heavy, melody-driven sound that is typically accented with an unforgettable vocal hook. Check out Lucid Dreams EP to hear some new KNK material, “Dreamyness” and “You’re So Good,” and also to revisit some older gems. Additionally, have a listen to their “Clique” remix after the jump and keep your eyes peeled for their “Treat Me Right” single to be released via Dim Mak Records.

Los Angeles producer/DJ Steve Huerta is back again with an impressive two track EP that just came out on the petFood imprint. Drawing from where he left off after his collaboration with Prince Club, ‘Do Good To Me’ follows a similar suit with tight percussion, swirling pads, nifty vocal stabs and a punchy square bassline. The second track on the EP ‘Revenge’ has all the characteristics you’d want for a set-starter, roof-top pool party, or a sunrise serenade. You can pick up the EP on Beatport.
A sure rising star out of New York’s underground dance music scene, Figgy, has come through with an impassioned effort on his 4-track For The One EP released via Symbols Recordings.
