The versatile producer/DJ, MOTSA, from Vienna, Austria, has been delivering world-class original tracks and remixes since his first release just eleven months ago. Already supported by luminaries such as Sasha, Steve Lawler, and John Digweed, this gifted rising star is seeing success with his deep, soulful brand of bass heavy house that’s uniquely his own. MOTSA has now come through with this flawless mix that brings back the vibes from some of my favorite warehouse parties and the like. Feel free to download the mix for safe keeping, and expect a new remix from MOTSA coming out on the Vienna-based label, Jhruza Records, in mid-June.

Kastle’s newest remix on Minds On Fire Records takes on UK’s Youan and his single “Your Trust” released on the Your Trust EP. Youan is someone Annie Mac featured in her FMM segment the other week, now this Kastle edit flips the original upside down adding a heavier lead synth and bassline that brings about more balance to the piece. Originality makes this house edit uncharacteristic of Kastle’s normal downtempo sound, but nonetheless he delivers the same fashionable vibes to get your freak on. The killer combination of Youan’s vocals shows what happens when two budding UK producers pair up to get you vibin’ on the dance floor.


In true-to-form fashion, I went a little ham on the R&B influences and remixes… there’s a lot of good stuff circulating right now and whilst still full of summer-driven high serotonin levels I’m basically only listening to stuff that I can sing/rap along to or dance to… or both. There’s a good sprinkling of emotion and a touch of acid just to round it off. Can’t be on one all the time you know. Also I think the median age for the remixers/producers on these tracks is around 20 which means A. I’m getting old and B. college-level guys are way more into Amerie and Ciara (publicly) than I remember.

My good bud Burn Unit really vibing off the British & American producers and vibes, lots of feel-good stuff in his picks from quite a few budding producers.

You can of course download each individual track via Soundcloud but each of us have zipped our selections up for you for easy download purposes. Trust us. – Laura

UK’s Youan crept onto my radar last month with his latest single, “Nightwalker,” which incorporates elements of Tech and Deep that I was immediately drawn to. Upon doing some research, I found that the relatively green producer has a couple of remixes done for Kastle and Empire of the Sun; the latter of which has been played on BBC and hosted on Mixmag in recent weeks. Additionally, Youan will be playing Fabric Room 1 in London this Friday along with Jack Beats, Zane Lowe, Mixhell, and others, and he’s put together a warm-up mix for us featuring some top producers like Breach, Huxley, Toyboy & Robin, as well as a few original tunes toward the end. Download below.
