Power duo, Arches, came onto the scene strong last year with their powerful Whitney Houston remix, and the collaborative project from Seba (Moonlight Matters) and Jochen (Sound of Stereo) is set for blast off in 2014 with a signing to Columbia Records for their debut single, “There’s A Place,” which was just premiered to the world via the lovely Annie Mac on BBC Radio 1 this morning.

Taking inspiration from the earlier days of House music, Arches find a pleasant equilibrium between the classic sounds of dance music from their native Belgium along with a new age bounce that is unquestionably catchy. The big debut single will be accompanied by a B-side featuring the talents of vocalist Gustaph (of Hercules and Love Affair fame), making for one exciting introduction. Listen to “There’s A Place” below. √+

Chloe Howl

Fresh on the heels of their storming remix for The Magician’s ‘When The Night Is Over’ Arches are back again with an effortless revamp of 18-year old songstress Chlöe Howl‘s forthcoming single, ‘Paper Heart.’ Nothing unassuming about this one, you know you’re in for it when that first kick steadily beats in, meaty and driving. Not surprising given the pedigree of this supergroup.

No release details as of yet, but the original will be out December 9th, so have a listen below and ask Santa for it to surface sometime after that! And if you’re not up on Arches, get on up.

Arches is the new conglomerate project featuring members of Moonlight Matters, Sound of Stereo, and Hercules and Love Affair — combining analogue sounds with contemporary House influences. The supergroup’s first two original productions, “Higher” and “Hurting,” were debuted on The Magician’s famous Magic Tapes (Thirty-Three and Thirty-Four) last month, creating a buzz around the newly formed collaboration. Today, Arches have given us the premiere for their first mix, featuring one of the aforementioned originals in addition to new ones from Isaac Tichauer, Peter & The Magician, Cyril Hahn, and more. Keep an eye on these guys!

Every year countless business and personal relationships are born at WMC/MMW in Miami and this year that was certainly the case for MAKJ. Through the course of a few booze-fueled parties MAKJ met and befriended Belgian electro/techno duo Sound of Stereo, and after confessing to them that “Zipper” is still one of his favorite tracks to this day, the lads decided to relinquish the stems to MAKJ so that he could put his own twist on the track. The results are an uber-bouncy Melbourne House electro monster! Already supported by Hardwell on his HOA radio show, this one is ready for the weekend!

This week marked the official start of summer, and what better way to welcome my next mix – dedicated the almighty festival season and of course the infamous 3 month vacation that all you people know and love. I’m sure most of you will be hitting the road to Las Vegas this weekend for the big one, so this is your goto firestarter for the road trip ahead. For all those otherwise, pump this at work, while you’re pre-gaming before going to the Avalon (or our VERSUS party), stuck in not cool traffic, or when the DJ you booked for your ‘glow’ party just ain’t bringin it. Welcome to summer my dirty dancers, get after it.

Today I feel like bringing you some uplifting tracks to get you in the holiday spirit. And no, I’m not talking about your mom’s Mariah Carey’s Merry Christmas album (although if various producers wanted to get together and throw together a remix compilation of that record I wouldn’t be opposed. Mariah Carey – All I Want for Christmas Is You (Erol Alkan’s I’d Rather Get You for Hanukkah So I Can Have You Eight Times Rework) anyone?) Below I present to you a collection of tracks both old and new, upbeat and relaxed, but all sprinked with a bit of holiday cheer.
As stated above, what an uplifting track! Actually everything that Michael Cassette (actually 3 dudes) releases is absolute quality. The “90’s Piano Mix” should give you a clue as to what to expect but don’t get too comfy in that office chair. Put this tune on after a holiday dinner if the fam is nice and sauced and throw yourself a little holiday dance party.
No formal introductions necessary here I hope. You very well may have A-Trak’s original cut of this track complete with Robyn’s vocals, but this stripped down dub mix is what really does the trick for me. So sue me for not hopping on the darling of post-summer 2010’s bandwagon like everyone else. It’s the thought that counts, right?
A great extended version of an absolute classic from 1988 (best year ever by the way, Lakers/Dodgers winning rings AND my birth) Heard this on the radio the other day during the torrential downpour that has been haunting The City of Angels and was reminded of how much I love this track.
While we’re at it with the 1980’s bangerade might as well throw in my favorite New Order song. I could probably get away with saying this is a brand new track and most people wouldn’t think twice. You might actually recognize this from its little cameo in a movie about a certain time machine that doubles as a jacuzzi. Like a fine wine …
The usually boisterous Belgian’s take a restrained approach this time on their ‘Hypnotize U’ bootleg, deciding to just spike the eggnog a bit as opposed to drinking whiskey straight from the bottle at the dinner table like they normally would. Cheers.
I can’t help but smile during all eleven minutes and eleven seconds of this tune. If you’re familiar with the Knife and Fever Ray then get acquainted with Oni Ayhun, aka Karin’s brother Olof, the other half of the iconic and enigmatic electronica duo. Last year Coachella got the gift of Fever Ray, maybe this year we’ll get the Knife and some Oni Ayhun to boot?
Happy Chrismahanukwanzakah to everybody out there.
Could Mumbai Science be coming on any stronger right now? Ladies who spend most of their nights out constantly fending off overly aggressive, creepy dudes … I now feel your pain. First the Belgian duo commandeered Halloween’s biggest sound system, as seemingly every DJ at HARD Haunted Mansion in LA dropped ‘Ancova,’ and now their new release ‘Gold’ off Lektroluv apparently stole the biggest global event of last weekend too, I Love Techno 2010. Find out why everyone (Erol Alkan, Boys Noize, Crookers, Sound of Stereo, Djedjotronic and Fake Blood, to name a few) have been banging their tracks out recently.
• Mumbai Science – Gold [Buy on Beatport]
Check out their latest mix out on Lektroluv Records on their Soundcloud.
The NOOB and NT89 remixes meet the gold standard as well, so pass on that cheeseburger combo tomorrow, and grab this EP off iTunes/Beatport instead. Or better yet grab the GOLD VINYL* from the Lektroluv Shop!
*Seriously, the vinyl is fucking gold!
You stay classy, internet …
I’m Matt Black?
