Futureboogie’s next release is a 4 track downtempo, chilled house number. It comes from Admin, which to be honest, we know very little about. He/she/they are from Bristol and we can’t seem to find much else online!

I’m sure all will be revealed in time, but it doesn’t matter really, because the music talks for itself. The two A side tracks are sizzling summer drifters. The tracks on the flip bring in a solid house bassline and some soulful vocal samples to add some pace to the release. Top notch once again coming from the Futureboogie camp. Digital release coming soon.


FRAMES & FORREST // DON’T MIND & LOSING YOU EP

Frames teams up with fellow Sydney-sider Nick Forrest on their double A-side of downtempo house music.

I love the sampled keys in “Dont Mind”, this coupled with an acid line which kicks in during the second half, makes this one hell of an opener! “Losing You” then picks up the pace, delivering a soulful vocal.Both quality tunes!

They are out now, but “Don’t Mind” is available for free download here. Get involved.

Squarehead is a son of the steel city a.k.a Sheffield. There’s been a real scene bubbling there for quite some time and if you’ve had chance to attend any house nights you will have almost certainly seen this guy playing or vibin’ in the crowd.

Squarehead has built up a strong following through his releases on Wolf Music and a bundle of remixes on the likes of Waze & Odyssey’s Street Tracks & many other great labels. He now joins Let’s Play House for a 4 track release entitled “Dead Reyt”.

On the A side, we’ve got two proper groovers. Powerful bass elements, classic percussion and vocal samples, make these lead tracks great peak time movers. On the flip, we see him take things down a notch. Check out those bright steel drums on the final track “Someday” – summer groovers right there! It’s out now, go grab your copy.

Rhythm Operator is back with a new release on Vicario Musique. The LA producer has had a string of successful releases on labels such as Let’s Play House, Dirt Crew, and Needwant to name a few.

This EP entitled, No More Games leads out with the original, which flows with organ good vibes and ideal for peak time. 3 remixes follow from heavy weights, Urulu, Sebastien Vorhaus & 4004 and a dub version from Casual Encounters. Nice!

Overall, a super release with a variation of tracks to choose from, whatever hour of the day or night! It’s out now and you can grab your copy here.

Sydney-based producer and Future Classic affiliate Touch Sensitive, aka Van She’s bassist/keyboardist Michael Di Francesco, the man behind the massive “Pizza Guy” single, returns with a lovely freebie for us called “Slowments”.

This is a delicious slow jam which has all Touch Sensitise’s style all over it. He also uses a sample of Art of Noise’s classic track “Moments In Love” for added magic. You can grab it free, below.

He will be working his moves around Australia and America over the next couple of months, as well as the Boiler Room in Melbourne next Friday – if you want to catch the live stream.


CASINO TIMES // WOLF EP23

WOLFEP023._6sLD3z_ 2

The Casino Times boys begin the new year with a full EP on Wolf Music. The London based duo have been going from strength to strength recently with the release of their first Casino edits as well as the big “I Wanna Know” EP on Need Want last year.

The four-track Wolf 23 EP leads out with a absolute monster of a tune entitled “Principles”. Simply massive! This leads into a rich sounding and piano sprinkled “AWD”, which sees the guys apply more restraint with great effect. Things become all the more low slung on the flip side with “High Hopes” and new-comer Damiano von Erckert steps in for remix duty.

Big ups to Casino Times & Wolf Music once again. Top quality stuff right here. Grab your copy on vinyl & digital.
