Here’s a deep and sexy jam from TÂCHES. Exploring the boundaries of RnB, TÂCHES redirects WET‘s “Move Me” into the sonic territory of house music. The time is right, let those hips sway and feet wander.
Catching the end rays of summer, NYC-based duo SAVA & RAZZ, bring the beach vibes with their bootleg of the “Wonderwall.” Clearly the duo aren’t shy to introduce new friends either. Their shimmering twist on a classic Oasis tune brings together a little moombah shuffle, sax, and calypso rhythms.
Here is quite simply, the meanest and darkest track of 2014. The sonics are huge, while the track itself isn’t exactly. In his latest single for Black Butter Records, the Bristol producer, WOZ, hammers out a massively sinister, minimal, bass-saturated cut. When this one drops, it’s all serious business. Grab it from Beatport or order it from the label direct.
We posted the b-side, “Trust Meh” a few weeks back. It’s no walk in the park either.
Prairie techno lovers unite! We are just a few short days away from the MEME Festival, which will feature sets from techno originator Kevin Saunderson, Montreal duo Blond:ish, Phil Western, Addison Groove, & more. The Cube and Old Market Square will be transformed by dark techno beats for 3 full days, on top of after parties at some of the hottest venues in the city.
I myself will be hitting the stage Saturday August 16th at 8:50pm at the Cube – Check out the Facebook event here.
To help get you excited, I have teamed up with MEME in my role as Ambassador Artist, Manitoba Music, and UNT Records to provide a limited-time free download of one of my original tunes, Tunnel Vision.
Check it out via Manitoba Music’s site. It is only available until August 15th, so don’t wait.
If you need some tunes to help keep you patient until the fest, I strongly recommend these mixes:
John Norman live at MEME 2013:
Kevin Saunderson live at Boooom Ibiza on the Tronic Podcast:
Tropical Heat has the the sample-based house music locked down. Their output is always lush and the release from VANILLA ACE and THEE COOL CATS is no different. If you’re after the summer vibes, the collaborative double single is exactly what you need. Grab the Beatport exclusive here.
Born out of one of the most delightfully greasy and lavishly indulgent features ever to grace a music blog, Scour Records has become a staple for anyone looking for the ghetto-influenced funky breaks. SPINFORTH and FAT HARRY‘s dedication to unearthing dance floor protein via ghettofunk.co.uk‘s SoundCloud Scour has quashed the appetite for free tunes of thousands of djs and music fans alike. They’ve tapped that market and bottled it into yet another go-to source for the funky funk. While the freebees may have dwindled, they certainly haven’t disappeared and their latest offering is a generous five-tracks to get those feet moving. Watch for the free download, it’s available as of August 14.
