After the inaugural ‘A Summer Riot EP’ was released last year featuring monumental tracks from Coat Of Arms, Lukas and Behling, Futureboogie hit us once again right in time for summer sun with the ‘A Summer Riot (Part II)’. Excited?! Oh hell yeah!
Four tracks come with this release encompassing piano melodies, infectious vocals, big bouncing basslines and heaps of disco tinted groove. Exactly what we love here at Givafizz HQ! The first track is simply beautiful, a true summer groover and it comes from newcomer Thrilogy. We then have firm family favourites PBR Streetgang, Danielle Moore, Lukas and James Welsh making up the rest of this killer release.
We don’t need to point out that Monitor 66′s arrival onto the scene with last summers Triscuits track saw them get spread around the interweb and played by many DJs across Europe, including the likes of The Magician.
So after plenty of studio time, honing their production style, they bring us this summer EP. Vitae starts with the title track, which firmly re-enforces their manifesto of making music for sunsets. Next up is Virago, a slightly more sultry affair featuring some rebuilt but familiar vocals that progressively unfold throughout the track.
On the B Side we have two more house orientated tracks, entitled Nyx and Cur. Probably for when the sun finally sets ;-)
Hard to pick a favourite, as it is a pretty diverse release. Although I do like the house vibes delivered by Nyx. Have a listen and decide on a favourite for yourself. Out via HOD on July 1st.
We are delighted to bring you our third guestmix, this time from the king of boogie edits, Mr Touchsoul. We’ve been a fan of Touchsoul for a long time now, enjoying his numerous 70′s/80′s discofunk, soul and boogie reworks / remixes.

Our english pal, Shit Hot Soundsystem has a new EP coming out soon on Undercover Operations. The boy produces some delicious disco magic, and this EP is no different. Both tracks on the EP have a deep groovy bassline which you can’t help to tap your feet along with, mixed with some familiar vocals – it is sure to get the ladies on the dancefloor.
We’re going to go as far as saying this is our favourite release from SHS so far. Big uppssss!
Those notorious victims of session keep rolling on the steam train of succes with this brilliant Glow In The Dark EP, which is topping the Juno charts right now.
And it’s easy to see why, as Yes I Know delivers their own inimitable blend of raw house, disco, soul and funk all put in the pot and stewed to perfection. And the second track, Glow In The Dark, produces a classic SV-style filtering balearic beauty which unfolds over 7 minutes of pure lo-slung disco joy.
Out now via Delusions Of Grandeur. Grab your copy here. Enjoy!
Opting for quality over quantity, Round Table Knights seasonal mixes always set our hearts on fire. And this mix is no different – slow, groovy summer vibes. Pure disco joy, with tracks from the likes of Holy Ghost!, Dr Drunks & The Rhythm Odyssey, Pharaohs & many more. In fact, running a music blog, we usually recognise a few tracks in most mixes – this one however had lots of surprises for us.
Well done Biru Bee & Marc Hofweber, keep up the great work!
