Last week we featured the funkier side of the new single from The Aston Shuffle, compliments of fellow Aussie Plastic Plates. Today we shine the spotlight on a darker side of the release, brought to you by our LA friends VCO. Coming off huge remixes for Azari & III and Tommy Trash, the duo take on The Aston Shuffle and deliver a stabbing house track carried by the melodic vocals of the original. Check it out below, and be on the lookout for its release next month!
GDD homies and Dim Mak-ians VCO have been very true-to-form studio rats as of late, churning out music left and right. Adding another pot to their busy stove, the duo have decided to launch a bi-weekly podcast more than aptly titled “Bitch Don’t Kill My Vibe”. In true VCO style the mix contains a variety of hollowed, dark techno sprinkled throughout with just a tinge of weirdness. By compiling a rather special selection of artists together, VCO provides an excellent showcase into their style which anyone who’s a fan of the darker side of the electronic spectrum will be more than pleased with and ready for more.
Toronto’s deepest duo Art Department has transcended the spirit of Burning Man’s ‘Robot Heart’ into an original production with the help of Blud, Shaun Reeves (VisionQuest) and Damian Lazarus. The deep house kingpins are celebrating the infamous Burning Man camp – with a remix competition on hosted on beatport! Riding off an official remix for Azari & III, our Dim Mak friends VCO have stepped up to the task and have delivered a wave of techno atop a rolling basslin driving their version. Check it out below and VOTE for their remix! Plus, since VCO are veteran-burners, they figured “joining in this contest would be fairly fitting.”
