So Good To Me was easily considered one of the top tracks of 2012 and a prominent force that brought Chris Malinchak new fans across the globe. Since its first release back in October (official release was May 5th), not many producers have attempted to reconstruct this classic into their own. This notion changed though when the UK up-and-comer, Ejeca, dropped his free remix earlier this week. His version reworks the original vocals into a chopped up, jackin house club remix. Don’t sleep on this one or any tunes from Ejeca!

Duke Dumont stormed onto the radars of the entire dance community towards the back half of last year with his chart topping hit ‘The Giver‘ and has not stopped in 2013. He rifled back with a banging Essential Mix on BBC1 as well as reaching the #1 spot on iTunes in the UK with a massive bomb ‘Need U 100%.’ Next Tuesday, he graces the carpet at Bardot in Miami for our weekly Slap & Tickle party alongside residents Troy Kurtz, Santiago Caballero, Panic Bomber, and Pirate Stereo.

Our favorite lost boy alien (babe) PennyBirdRabbit has just released her follow up SAFER EP and we are so happy to hear the new funky house vibe. Penny is infamous for her angelic vocals lent to the sounds of powerhouses Skrillex and The M Machine, but the energy and soul reflected in her own production is amplified with every track included in this EP – fans of Disclosure and Bondax will love the vibes on these (Our fav is RUN – see video below)… Get your hands on Penny’s SAFER EP!

This year our favorite festival has a very special addition that we are all very excited to experience. The Yuma Stage is a new feature at Coachella that is stacked with some of the top DJs and legends of the deep house scene. To some this is probably everything you have dreamed of; while to others the names and the music might be unfamiliar. Not to worry though because I have crafted a mix that hopes to encapsulate the vibes played throughout the Yuma the next two weekends. Take a listen to prepare yourself for Coachella’s newest stage. It’s going to be a glorious two weeks!
Tis the season to get sprung, and I present you an hour’s worth of tunes to usher in this lascivious vibe. My selections hop across genres and delve deep into my musical collection, ranging from Skream to !!! to Classixx.
Best wishes & happy hunting.
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.
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. For The One boasts an old school house vibe with a modernistic flare that maintains originality and an unconventional appeal that shines through on each club ready track. Figgy and the rest of the Broke City crew are quickly making a name for themselves with a keen sense of style that is not found elsewhere. Be on the look out for them in 2013. Preview the For The One EP below and purchase on Beatport or iTunes.

When the idea of the GDD Advent Calendar first began circling a few weeks ago, Canadian artist Sean Roman was one of the first producers who I was itching to find out what goodies he had hiding. Just as I presumed, he immediately shot over four massive tracks, and after a quick listen, the DJ side of me wanted to hoard them all as secret weapons.
I’m still on the fence about giving away Stutter.
We start off this week with our 10th day of the GDD advent calendar, bringing you a the video premiere of Mike Mago‘s new single “Galactic.” Directed by creative duo Ine & Sanne, the black & white film visualizes the haunting tones of the song itself, while shedding light on the soul of its groove with imagery of 2 lovers displaying mirrors and design. The EP is out tomorrow on BMKLTSCH RCRDS, featuring also 2 incredibly groovy remixes from Broke One and Behling & Simpson.
The Galactic EP is out tomorrow, but in the spirit of the season we’ve teamed up with Mike Mago to give you the extended mix version (not included in the EP) TODAY!
