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.

The beginning of each month HNQO releases a new podcast through his soundcloud showcasing some of the best tracks in deep house. This months podcast titled “Lights of My City” is full of groovy house jams that are the perfect cure for the common frown.
Who is HNQO?
This past July Henrique Oliveira or better known as “HNQO” burst onto the international deep house scene with his release “Point of View” on Hot Creations records. “Point of View” hit number one on the beatport deep house chart and ever since the 22 year old from Brazil has been one to watch.
With an upcoming release on up and coming UK label Midnight Social Recordings & the launch of his own label Playperview, I expect big things from the young Brazilian producer in 2013.
With my nice leather jacket fresh of the closet for the season, as well as more beanies than I can unapologetically admit to owning and wearing, it’s official: it’s getting cold. Now, don’t get me wrong, I’m a huge fan of fall & the things that come with it: rosy cheeks, cozy fireplaces, pumpkin or apple EVERYTHING, and so on, but there’s something I’ll always miss about the kiss of summer that kind of comes with being a california girl (damn you, Katy Perry..)
As the winter chill nips at our heels, it’s nice to reminisce about the warm days of summer, where being out in the sun inevitably leads to a happier disposition, more dance parties, and from a chemical perspective, an increase in your body’s production of eumelanin. Pretty much the stuff that your skin creates to protect your cells from getting their DNA damaged by the sunlight, since it’s pigmented a higher level of melanin would mean a darkened skin color. Viola, a tan!
Below are what I can laughably call my very own musical tanning-bed, your own little reminder of summer. Put on your favorite pool party ensemble, bust out the Jimmy Buffet Margaritaville Margarita Maker, and shake your booty to these sun-lovin, summer-drippin tunes.

The deeper half of Dave Spoon aka Shadow Child has been on a warpath since his emergence in 2012. With an already incredible roster of production done this year, Shadow Child takes his new remixes for a ride: to the jungle for A-Trak & Zinc‘s “Stingray” and to the deep end for Miguel Campbell‘s new “Rockin’ Beats.” Both out on October 15th – do NOT sleep on these.
Good morning! Today’s news includes Bassnectar’s European Vacation, Lindstrøm’s New Album, the Eats Everything US Tour, and Miguel Campbell getting Back in Flight School. Please read on after the jump.
On July 30th, the spectacular Mexican duo, Climbers, released their most recent EP, 2 Come Back – the second release put out on the Los Angeles label, Culprit, after debuting their first EP back in May. “2 Come Back” is a great Deep House track and a product of an obvious industriousness in the studio from Jay Blakk and Kiko Deal. The EP features the original as well as 2 remixes from fellow South American up and comers, Fur Coat, and Hot Creations legend, Miguel Campbell, providing for one hell of a release. Today, the guys have put together a promo mix to accompany 2 Come Back, and it’s just the right temperature to get you through this Wednesday. Don’t sleep on these guys, folks. √+
I caught myself casually driving around Miami last weekend. The sun was out. The weather was warm. Girls were still walking around in bikinis and anywhere else in the world, you’d suspect it was summer. I had just burned the new Hot Waves compilation and had nothing to do. A Sean Roman track started to play, and I paused. Ever since the first email I got from him a few years ago, I knew his sound would eventually hit. I got home from my drive and summoned him to do a mix for us, and of course he obliged. His mix sounds so current, full of super compressed basslines and extremely swung hi-hats that fit so well and grooves that just go on and on. It really is a wonderful mix to drive to. He has an EP coming out on Miguel Campbell‘s label Outcross, as well as an EP for Neim Records. Sean Roman is going to have a great 2012.
