German vibe master, Tensnake, released his most recent EP, 58BPM/See Right Through, back in August featuring the lovely vocals of Fiora on both the A and B side of the Astralwerks release. A couple of months later, Astralwerks has recruited a great cast of remixers for each track, with Londoners Medlar and Toyboy & Robin each delivering excellent House renditions ready for the floor, while Tensnake pays an homage to the legend, Todd Edwards, with his own “Toddsnake” remix, using the innovator’s signature chopped arrangement for a great uptempo remake of his original.

While the commercial dance music sound seems to still be sweeping across the United States like a swarm of locusts, there is an unbelievable amount of tasteful House, Garage, and Bass coming out of the UK, more specifically London, at the moment.

With a solid foot in the House realm, another foot in Bass, and an elbow in R&B, Toyboy & Robin have created a perfect equilibrium of their sound — catchy, grooving, and undeniably danceable. On that note, the gents have put together an impeccable mix for us today, featuring the aforementioned Londoners as well as Nicolas Jaar, Toro y Moi, Todd Edwards, and many more.
