Can’t end the year without a little more sweat! Our aussie brethren label Sweat It Out has dished out the Club Sweat Workout Series Volume 2, the follow up compilation featuring some young guns from our side of the planet – a devilish medley of bass driven belters and upfront house music. Here’s what the Sweat crew had to say about the release:
Hard to believe Sweat It Out began nearly 9 years ago (feeling old – ouch). At the time, we debated whether the origin of the name was because we used to eat hot thai food on a Tuesday with the goal of sweating out the weekend (weird that we didn’t think this should have been done on a Monday but I digress), or whether it was because of the amount of sweat AJAX would let out whilst dj’ing.
What we did agree on was a love of sweaty basements and music for such surrounds. Our WORKOUT SERIES epitimises exactly that.
Here we present 5 tunes that are made for clubs of around 200 people, with sweat dripping off the ceiling and heads turned slightly sideways. Shall we say, where we feel most at home.
Big love to SMALLTOWN DJs, RUMPUS, J.WORRA, COSELLA, FROM DROP TILL DAWN, LYNDON KIDD, and last but not least, BRILLSTEIN – you all killed it!

A couple months ago I happened to catch a ridiculous set by Felix Da Housecat at one of Bang On NYC‘s legendary parties. As a budding DJ and self proclaimed tech geek I wanted to know what he was using to mix with and was pleasantly surprised to find that Felix has taken up Traktor. So when Native Instruments reached out to offer me a chance to check out some of their gear, you bet I said yes!
The British duo, Audiojack just dropped their newest EP, Stay Glued and it’s quite strong. The Ep features two brand new tracks, Stay Glued ft. Kevin Knapp and Bad Influence as well as remixes from FCL, Waifs & Strays and Gorge. Each track is unique but still holds true to the EP’s overall dark and techy feel. I personally love each track, however, I am really vibing to Bad Influence at the moment. Which track do you think is strongest?
Check out the tracks and the EP after the jump!
