If you’re a tech house dj and haven’t played something from the Snatch camp in the past few years then are you really a dj??!!
Here’s a fresh 4-track release, all from different artists. All four tracks are getting a huge amount of backing from the industries biggest players, and rightly so as they are all dancefloor monsters! Tech house at it’s very best. I’ll stop rabbiting on, go check ’em out!
Ok, so here’s something that I was sent recently by the lovely people over at Kling Klong Records. A huge 3-part release by Sid Vaga & Herald and a first release on this credible label for them.
The title track features the legendary Roy Davis Jr and comes packaged with a beautiful remix by Nathan Barato. Both versions are really powerful and would stand up to any dancefloor. The second track is called Dissident, and is yet another strong track for any tech house and techno set.
All round great release for Kling Klong and gets a huge thumbs up from me! This one is currently only available exclusively to Beatport. Grab your copy now!
Recently I (Lawrence Friend) have formed a new dj/production duo with my long term friend Tommy Heron (Pornostar Recordings, Funk Me) called ‘None The Wiser’. Our first project was this cheeky little remix of an old skool garage classic. We decided to completely re-play every element from the original and added a dark twist on the bassline.
This is available for a free download by clicking HERE or click onto the Soundcloud link below. All feedback welcome…
I’m not going to say much about this as I believe it speaks for itself, but it’s a 21 track release from one of my favourite labels and pretty much every one is a dancefloor banger! You need this in your life…. available now!
Here’s a lovely two-track EP by Spanish producer ‘Pablo Say’ recently released on the label ‘Truesoul’. Both tracks have that big room and festival vibe. The title track ‘Green Melody’ has some weird breakdowns consisting of random keynotes, but somehow it just works! The second track is called ‘Reencuentro’ which is a bouncy tech house number that has some really nice old school chord patterns.
All round a great EP, can’t wait to play it out! Available now!
This is something I came across recently whilst track searching for upcoming gigs, this one stands out to me purely for it’s melodic chord pattern, it’s filter break and sketchy hats on the drop. This is the dub version from a 3-part release consisting of an original, a Noir remix and a Noir Dub. If I’m being completely honest, I wasn’t too fond of the vocal in the other two mixes, hence me picking out the dub remix version only.
Amazing track by Hayze and beautifully remixed by Noir, out now on Noir Music… Go get it!
So, recently whilst digging around for new music I came across this little gem; a new 4-track EP on the 100% Pure label from ‘Man With No Shadow’ containing 3 original tracks and one hefty remix of the title track.
Kicking things off with the title track ‘Drumfeld’, this starts off with some old skool sounding synth chord stabs before dropping into a nice deep bass groove. Very well constructed, the track takes you on a journey as elements kick in and drop out continuously keeping the track fresh. The second track on the EP is called ‘Asteriks’, the main riff is created by a delayed chime pattern which sits perfectly over some nice swinging hats and greats little snare fills. This is definitely getting some play time in my upcoming sets, big track! Next up is the Copy Paste Soul remix of ‘Drumfeld’. This one uses the same old skool chords but with a much bigger ‘big room’ feel to them. They have completely reworked the breakdowns and drops and made it into a club banger, another one for the gig bag. So, finally we have the track ‘Double Dub’ which makes use of a nice little repetitive vocal stab sat over some nice techy drums and a huge sub bass groove. It’s quite a hard track to review as there is so much going on, worth having a listen for yourself, great track!
An all round great EP from 100% Pure, check it out…
Another absolute weapon from one of my favourite producers ‘Dosem’ and yet another credit to the mighty Toolroom Records. This one has it all, the main riff consists of a big brassy sounding synth pattern sat over the top of a punchy bass pattern. So many elements in this track kicking in and dropping out, from little vocal stabs to percussion hats and shakers. A perfectly crafted masterpiece, love it!
Recently featured and supported on Radio 1 by Pete Tong, here is that recording..
Now for those of you who are fans of Kaskade, we would like to offer you the opportunity for you and a friend to see
the Electronic superstar and house music pioneer arrive in the capital as part of his extensive 2016 European tour for his only UK show of the year. Taking place at London’s favourite auditorium Electric Brixton on Saturday 12th November, this special one-off date will see the US sensation showcase his trademark brilliance in ways we’ve never seen before.
This follows Kaskade’s previous London visit back in December which resulted in a spectacular sold out date at The Steelyard. With anticipation growing for his return ever since that unforgettable night, we’re extremely excited to bring him back to the capital city for another non-stop session of his incredible sounds. Kaskade will also be joined on the night by some very special guests yet to be announced.
If you would you like to be in with a chance of winning, all you have to do is answer the following question:
Now when it comes to ATFC, his tracks have been in my record box since the ‘vinyl days’! As Seamus Haji States “ATFC is not a football team, in fact it’s one man who stands alone in his quest for keeping the funk alive & kickin and he’s been doing so for over a decade. He is Aydin The Funki Chile! Big Love”
So it is very exciting to see the release of ‘Turok’. A little jackin, a touch hip house, a wee bit Techy and most certainly floor friendly. The track also includes a chanting vocal sample i think everyone will be trying to remember & then track i.d on the dance floor!
‘Turok’ is now already sitting nicely at number 10 on the Traxsource top 10, as did his previous release ‘Git Yo Hands Up’ out on Defected.
The release’s predictions suggest it will make quite the imprint on Ibiza this year, I agree. With Support already from Bob Sinclar, Mark Knight, The Shapeshifters, Seamus Haji.
