French Horn Rebellion – Girls (Rogue Vogue remix)

Posted in Tracks by on Mar 7, 2013

Two weeks ago, a good friend recommended I check out French Horn Rebellion. Sure enough, they pack some serious, heated Brooklyn funk. AND THEN I caught wind that another friend of mine, Chicago’s own Rogue Vogue, would be putting out a dancier, more club-friendly remix of Girls for free. You see where this is going, yeah? We’ve been huge supporters of Rogue Vogue in the past and...

Just Kiddin – Intimacy EP

Posted in Tracks by on Feb 19, 2013

Just Kiddin hyped up their most recent release on Nurvous Records with every damn right to do so.  This UK duo truly represents forward-thinking dance house producers. Harmonic, melodic, and downright groovy are incredibly generic identifiers for their Intimacy EP, but this collection of tunes itself stands as a testament to their talent. They’ve had me hooked in since last spring...

Jonas Rathsman – February 2013 Mix

Posted in Playlists by on Feb 18, 2013

This one’s fairly straightforward – if you’ve been following anything I’ve written over the past year or even listened to Rathsman’s Essential Mix last month, you’ve likely caught on that I’m a fan of his work. It’s one hour of pure house grooves, with a track list coming shortly. Oh, and he’s due out for a new (and what we can only assume,...

Eli Escobar to Release Drifting EP on Nurvous Records

Posted in Tracks by on Feb 11, 2013

Here’s my big news of the day: NYC’s “Quintessential DJ” Eli Escobar will finally be releasing a few tracks that’ve been highly sought after for the past year or so. Drifting has popped up on too many DJ’s setlists to count, and its Dark Mix counterpart has quite a bit of soul to it. Currently relistening to these samples for the 4th time and I couldn’t...

Mano Le Tough – Please

Posted in Tracks by on Jan 30, 2013

News out of Berlin – Mano Le Tough to release his single Please on February 22nd. Mano has already made smooth groove house his signature for years – sometimes more on the nu disco/indie dance side of the spectrum and in other times a bass-happy track like Baby, Let’s Love. This one’s definitely not up for a danceclub venue (unless you have the nuts to play it), but it...

EJECA – Frequency EP

Posted in Tracks by on Jan 30, 2013

Rising UK producer Ejeca released his Frequency EP earlier this week on Sasha‘s label Last Night on Earth. In comparison with some of his earlier releases, this EP vibes out a bit more and implies a cooler, more relaxing listening environment. A particular favorite of mine, Time For A Change, stands out from the rest as a dedicated rhythm to breakbeat, rather than the housey sounds...

Hannes Fischer releases original “Deep Field”

Posted in Tracks by on Jan 28, 2013

We’ve mostly gotten to know Hannes Fischer for his brilliant remixes of high profile artists like Major Lazer, Bon Iver, Adele, Moon Boots and more. Most of them unofficial, but still magnificent in their own element. Hannes marks this Friday as a milestone in his career, releasing Deep Field as a vinyl and one helluva down and dirty groove. This slice of deep space house will be released...
