Tom Flynn is an expert when it comes to House music. The UK producer has pumped out releases on some of the best labels in the game, including Hypercolour, Deleted, and of course dirtybird, where he released his superb Be Yourself EP late last summer. To add to his growing repertoire, Flynn has just released an unbelievable 4-track EP titled Everything I Am for Nick Curly‘s 8 Bit imprint, and it’s honestly hard to choose my favorite of the 4. Each are sexy, well-produced, and just straight-up solid dancefloor House music. Can’t get enough of this dude. √+
The long-awaited Hypercolour release from Justin Martin and Eats Everything is finally right around the corner, with the digital release on Monday the 11th. Eats has said that this is the first of many collaboration EPs between the jolly duo, and based on the sound from this EP, we can’t wait. With many collaborations, it’s easy to tell who does most of the legwork, but with Feather Fight, the talent from both producers truly shines through individually as well as synergistically. Preview below and pick it up on Monday. √+
All representatives of the French Express imprint had an amazing year in 2012 — constantly producing jam after groovy jam as well as hitting the road across the globe. This month, 2 of the label’s stalwart producers, Perseus and Jonas Rathsman, were called upon by BBC’s Pete Tong for their hand at an Essential Mix, and the pair took the opportunity full on and curated a tracklist of pure gold. Tons of goodies from French Express, Future Classic, HyperColour, Futureboogie, and a healthy amount from their secret CDR stash. Download below. √+
On June 11th, UK producer Mosca will be releasing his newest EP, Eva Mendes, via Hypercolour. Eva Mendes is Mosca’s first release this year, which is not surprising for a producer well known to take his sweet time mastering every aspect of his productions. The EP marks a transition away from his 2-step and garage influences as Mosca begins to experiment with four-to-the-floor house beats. Mosca was kind enough to preview the entire EP on his Soundcloud before the release date, so grab your headphones, and prepare for another flawless EP from Mosca.
Quick, go find a Maya Jane Coles release that wasn’t entirely awesome and I’ll hand over my GDD account and password and I’ll be banishéd to a land where there is no music, only hissing white-noise and cacophonous feedback. OK, maybe a bit melodramatic, but Maya’s newest EPDon’t Put Me In Your Box, which came out today on the Hypercolour imprint, is just another wonderfully moody and hypnotic four track dazzler that adds to her blossoming discography. She must hate sunny days, because this is the music you want to be playing as you make your lover a warm cup of tea on a dreadfully rainy Sunday. She has an album coming out next year, sometime around May or June. I know it will be great, because she knows no wrong.
UK’s Queen of House: Maya Jane Coles has been the latest artist to deliver an Essential Mix for Pete Tong‘s legendary show on Radio 1. At 23 years old, Maya’s already developed a name for herself as one of the hardest working producers in dance music today, racking up releases on Hypercolour, Defected, 20:20 Vision, and Anja Schneider‘s Mobilee label to name a few. Last week she released a brilliant remix as part of Little Dragon‘s new EP, which is definitely worth checking out. In the meantime though, bliss out to two hours of mellow groovers courtesy of Maya Jane Coles and the Beeb:
