Wankelmut is a subtle star. It’s not common for DJs who sell over 1.3 million copies for an official remix on Sony and garner 100 million plays on YouTube to be “behind the scenes” so to speak, but it appears that Berlin-based Wankelmut doesn’t need a Billboard cover or a headline festival slot to keep doing what he loves. Back in January, Wankelmut released “My Head Is A Jungle” featuring Emma Louise, which was championed by Pete Tong and Annie Mac vigorously on BBC Radio 1 in addition to strong DJ support around the world. 8 months later, the big tune will be seeing a re-release on Positiva, featuring the original accompanied by 6 mixes including remixes from MK, Friend Within, Gui Boratto, Solee, and Kasper Bjorke as well as an extended Vocal Mix from the original producer. The EP will be released on September 15th, but until then, stream the MK remix as well as the original below.
Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs released his first mix CD last week as the Get Lost VI compilation for Crosstown Rebels, featuring 2CDs, 32 tracks, and over 140 minutes of music. Debuting on this compilation is the new collaboration between Orlando (TEED) and Eats Everything titled “Lion, The Lion.” The new single, available only on Get Lost VI as of now, reaches into the Techno/Tech House world and is not immediately recognizable as something you’d usually hear from either of these UK producers. It’s gritty, spacey, and experimental; definitely an awesome synergy occurring here…

After a number of releases with support from names like Mikix the Cat, Angel Stoxx, Trockensaft, Umek, Dubfire and many more, Dark & stormy brings us a new EP. As suspected, he delivers full force with this new Ep Dance to This out on Metamimetic Records.
While sticking to his roots and maintaining his signature Tech House and Tropical sound, Dark & Stormy adds a more accessible element to the lead track “We’re Gonna’ Have a Good Time” which is a all out party tune for ANY occasion. Harkening back to the days of parachute pants and bad hair, this 90′s house stomper brings the heat with a great mixture of 90′s house, Tech House and Hip House.
