Amsterdam based Mike Mago has been making serious waves in the house realm, finding unison in deep basslines and future driven leads. His productions have caught the ear of vocal phenom AlunaGeorge, who’s got him on the official remix of her single ‘Supernatural’… here’s what he had to say about the opportunity:

“I was really honored when Aluna George asked me to do a remix. Been fan a AG for ages! I tried to keep the strength and smoothness of the original and to switch it into the style I’m known for. I know this is a really cliche thing to say, but when your remixing musicians you’re a big fan of, it really comes down to that accurate balance.” – Mike Mago

The BMKLTSCH RCRDS boss, Mike Mago, has delivered this new collaboration with Dragonette entitled “Outlines.” With support from artists such as The Magician, Tensnake, Josh Wink, and more, Mago has been seeing his international recognition grow with each of his well-received releases. This latest production takes on a stripped down four-on-the-floor vibe with a punchy bassline and synth chords that accent the radio-friendly Dragonette vocals.

Many people know the line “I’ve Got the Power!” from Snap’s 1990 hit “The Power” but the original track the sample was taken from was the 1985 Jocelyn Brown dance hit “Love’s Gonna Get You”.  Brown’s track was not only sampled on Snap’s worldwide hit, it was also used on Bizarre Inc’s “I’m Gonna Get You” and on Moby’s classic tune “Go”.  Its latest reincarnation comes courtesy of Dutch techno/electro/disco-meister Mike Mago, founder of BMKLTSCH RCRDS.  The track was recently featured on The Magician’s Magic Tape Twenty Two.  “The Power” is a deep, dark, energetic electro disco stormer that’ll keep you movin’ and shakin’ and handclappin’ till the sun comes up.

Out in May on BMKLTSCH RCRDS.

So we took last week off of The Dirt and we sincerely apologize for it, but what better way to come back this week than with a mouthwatering, user-submitted buttshot and a terrific 11-pack of tunes to get you ready for the weekend! As usual, we have a bit of everything in here, so either take our word for it and download everything via the zip files, or pick and choose which ones sound good to you. Happy Dirt day people.

JACKIN’ TECH HOUSE
Riva Starr, Major Lazer – Jump (The Martin Brothers Remix) √+ [Beatport]
Out last month on the Snatch! subsidiary label, Snatch! Special, this remix of Jump by Christian and Justin blends the familiar sounds of Snatch! and DirtyBird and is deservedly the first track on the compilation release.

VOCAL INDIE NU DISCO
Metronomy – Everything Goes My Way (Ewan Pearson Remix) √+ [Beatport]
I first heard this remix on Danny Daze‘s guest mix for Nic Fanciulli‘s Worldwide Sounds podcast. I love the original from Metronomy and Ewan Pearson sticks to the main elements while incorporating a great Nu Disco feel.

TECHNO + HOUSE
Lazy Ants & Rob Threezy – Chi to Rome (Mike Mago Remix) √+
Set for release next Monday the 19th, the Chi to Rome EP from Lazy Ants and Rob Threezy incorporates some of my favorite genres: Acid House, Chicago House, and Techno. This remix from BMKLTSCH Records head honcho, Mike Mago, delivers a bit of a Chicago House vibe while incorporating the repetition of a solid Techno tune.

EPIC DREAMWAVE
Cut Copy – Sun God (Andrew Weatherall Remix) √+
Cut Copy received a Grammy nod for Best Dance/Electronica Album a couple weeks ago for their fantastic Zonoscope LP, and in celebration they’ve released this nearly 9-minute epic remix from the legendary Brit, Andrew Weatherall. It’s a must have.

LUVSTEP
Traveler – Phantom (Original Mix) √+
I just posted on these guys earlier this week, but I felt like I needed to include this track in The Dirt this week because it’s been on such heavy rotation since I downloaded it on Monday. Keep a serious eye out for Traveler in 2012.

DISCO

Gigamesh - Burnin’

Gigamesh is heating up the Winter by bringing back the classic “Disco Inferno” with great taste and extra grooves. It’s just another gem to add to the quality Gigamesh catalog.

HEAVY ELECTRO

 Uppermost – Positive [Beatport]

Uppermost displays his refined production skills with a harder hitting, Justice type sound in “Positive,” a track of off his latest release, Action.

DRUM ‘N’ BASS

Sigma – Do You Love [Beatport]

This round of the Dirt calls for a tune from the always dependable Sigma. I find it necessary to have a little up-tempo energy and this easily gets the job done.

BASS FUSION

 Rustie – All Nite

I’m sure you could relate on how good it feels to come across a great artist and my latest discovery is Glasgow’s Rustie. With a unique and distinct style, he’s definitely one to look out for, especially with support from BBC’s Annie Mac.

DUBSTEP

Metric – Collect Call (Adventure Club Remix)

They’re known for their remixes, and it’s to no surprise that Adventure Club has put together a great arrangement of Metric’s “Collect Call.” Having the foundation of great vocals to work with facilitates the production process, but they certainly take it a step further.

DOWNTEMPO

 Emancipator – Elephant Survival

Emancipator is one of my favorite producers to chill to and with his laidback, flowing vibe, there’s not much else I could ask for. If you don’t already “like” his Facebook, I suggest you do so as he gave this track out for free today after reaching 30,000 fans!
