Julio Bashmore is feeling lovey today and we’re loving him for it! He just remixed this chilled version of Justin Timberlakes come back single ‘Suit & Tie’ and accompanies it with repetitive dreamy backing vocals. Absolutely loving this – its defintely a track to make you look forward to SUMMER!
Following its amazing reception as one of the best underground hits of 2012, Compuphonic re-releases his smash-hit ‘Sunset’ on the Get Physical label this February, along with an impressive line-up. Not only has Aeroplane delivered his own version of the track but Waze & Odyssey, Aashton & Swift, David Keno & Fabio Giannielli have all taken their turns of producing some amazing remixes.
From funk to electronic, house to a 90′s vibe – these mixes have got everything, appealing to each individual and their musical tastes. Keeping the original afloat, you can really hear the best of underground music & what is making people dance today. With so many to choose from, its hard to pick a favorite, however we’ll leave that one to you. One things for certain, these are all going to be HUGE
Hot on Waifs & Strays new Futureboogie release – Marco Bernardi gives them a run for their money with his new EP entitled ‘Motorways’. A three track production he fuses together sweet electronic melodies with beautifully placed synths. Motorways embraces the beat more than anything and selects dark vocals towards the end, this is a serious track and has the potential to be huge this year.
Space Coral & Cosmic Aroma are both amazing as well; Comic Aroma is a chilled track and compliments itself with is a heady mix of warm floating pads and lively electronic keys. Definitely a tune to get lost in.
The EP is released on February 15th 2013
Eats Everything & Justin Martin join forces to release an EP on DJ’s Magazine Label of the Year, Hypercolour. Easily two of the most prominent electronic music success stories of the past 12 months, the duo put their heads together to produce such an amazing 2 track EP entitled ‘Feather Fighter’.
Both ‘Feather Fight’ & ‘Harpy’ lead you into a false sense of security from the start. They’re stripped back of the elements at the beginning & both drop a massive basses. Such an easy track to dance to – we can imagine they were double the fun to make.
Soon after his praise from Pete Tong, his collaboration with Bicep and massive big ups for Waze & Odyssey, Ejeca features on Sasha’s London based Last Night On Earth Label with his new EP – ‘Frequency’. ‘Hi Rollin’ & ‘Neva 2 Far’ ooze that garage influence Ejeca is only too good at and samples some amazing vintage vocals.
Our favourite track on the EP has to be ‘Time for a change’ - absolute love Ejecas ability to sample a heavy garage vocal with such a slow tempo & still make it work incredibly. It seems to be one of those tracks you wind down to at the end of the night, perfection!
‘Nassau Storm’ brings a dubby side to the EP, embracing with a driving baseline and good effects alongside a subtle melodic line.
‘Frequency’ is out on Beatport now & you can watch the official video of Hi Rollin here
