I might possibly go as far as to say this is the best EP I’ve heard so far this year. Leftwing & Kody have been faves of mine for a while and Lost Records are consistently releasing quality music, so this is a perfect artist / label combo. This 4 track EP consists of three originals and a remix from Luca Cazal and all four tracks are seriously pumping, high energy Jackin’ house, perfect peak set fodder. Out on May 11th well worth the wait. Here’s a little EP teaser for now.
HOT TIP TUESDAY
Every Tuesday we bring you our Hot Tip track or artists that we think is going to explode.
Vouloir first submitted a track to us back in December last year, proclaiming he’d not been producing long, a delicate future house / future beats style laid back track of excellent quality production, he really could have fooled us. His first track beautifully chopped up the vocals of Florence and the Machine, as did his second and third and by the fourth it was beginning to be a little too much Florence and far too much machine, despite each track being of consistently excellent quality, I was waiting to hear something that didn’t feature Ms Welch.. and here it is. Vouloir has remixed The Tropics ‘Home & Consonance’ and it’s delicately brilliant. There’s little background on him, no biog not even a facebook page, but owing to the fact that the only description on his soundcloud is ’95 and his twitter merely says 19 i’d say this 19 year old could be heading for success if he keeps up the quality he’s shown so far. I’m looking forward to seeing what else he brings to the table. Keep a watchful eye on this lad.
Three track EP from Manchester based Havana Dub coming out on Nasty Funk Records in May. ‘Go To Chicago’ is aptly named for it’s Chicago influenced vibe, the title track ‘Need To Know’ is a stripped back Tech-house jam, with a soulful choppy vocal sample while ticking over just delves a little deeper into the bass. Three bangers.
We’re excited to share some new music from Arthur Younger who just released this super catchy remix of Aquilo’s “It All Comes Down To This”. The London based producer and DJ is making some big waves of late and this is no exception. Arthur turns the original into house and disco fueled track while maintaining the key elements of the original song. He tells us that he’s been busy working on new material so keep an eye on him for upcoming releases. Free download here.

I only recently discovered Dutch producer Die Grote and I’m instantly a fan, soulful garage house vibes of pure quality and his latest EP is as the title states ‘Cool’. Out on Criminal Hype, this 4 track EP includes an original and 3 remixes from Andy Lee, Jeremy Juno and Brian Morse, all three remixes are pretty similar to the original but Andy Lee takes it a little deeper and more Bass driven, Jeremy Juno strips it back but accentuates the shuffling Garage beats, while Brian Morse goes for a more laid back soulful version, each remix truly outstanding though.
I highly recommend heading to Die Grotes soundcloud to grab yourself some free Downloads. Here’s a little taster.
SLOW JAM SUNDAY #005
We bring you a Slow Jam to help you wind down on a Sunday after a hectic weekend, breathe deep and enjoy.
We’ve been enjoying the musical etchings of Lucian, since he first sent over his remix of Black Coast - TRNDSTTR which we posted on our musical advent calender back in December. His latest offering is perfect Sunday chill vibes, future beats meats R&B, the seductive vocals of London songstress RAYE with Lucians broken R&B beats, sit back and enjoy.
FIVE FOR FRIDAY
blogged by Michelle Manetti
It was not too long ago we heard from New York City’s Lefti (aka Alex Suarez), who took off with official remixes for Solidisco and Avan Lava. Now he’s back with a rework of Big Data’s ”The Business of Emotion” that’s got some funky house vibes getting us through the rest of the week. With a hint of Justice’s feel good energy, this track will definitely get you up out of your seat and dancing without a care in the world. ”I am really excited that I got to take a shot at remixing this song – it’s one of my favorites on the album,” Lefti says. “I’m not really used to remixing down in the 111 bpm range but I had fun playing around with the vocals and live bass.”
So I’ve been a HUGE fan of cleavage since their very first free upload over a year ago, the musical offerings have been sporadic but all entirely worth the wait, these guys are all about quality not quantity and what they deliver is one million percent quality every time. The guys behind cleavage have remained somewhat a mystery, but with the release of the third in their Dressed / Naked mixtape series, they’ve finally revealed their identity, two rather handsome blonde dutch boys. The new mixtapes are as expected, a delightfully perfect blend of soulful garage house.
And here’s a Free download of theirs I missed from a couple of months ago, a remix of St. Germain – So Flute.
