Here’s a pair of tracks from 12-3 Recordings founder, RUBEN BRUNDELL. One, deep with a garage tinge, and the other a tribute to summer, or as Brundell describes it, “a track that felt like drinking a Corona in the sun, dancing.” Grab a cold one, then head to iTunes or Beatport for the cuts.
Following the success of the Get Up Everybody EP with “What’s That Sound” topping the Beatport Top 100 Indie Dance / Nu Disco for more than two months, THE BEATANGERS are happy to introduce BOOGIE VICE by offering you tidy bootleg of The Chemical Brothers’ “The Salmon Dance.” The free download works the vocals from the original into a chugging house tune with an addictive bassline, nicely complimented with muted claps. Once again, ace dancefloor material from the homeboys from France.
If you missed the above mentioned track, now’s your chance. Don’t sleep on this.
Here’s an unreleased track (but watch for it soon I’m sure) from STANTON WARRIORS. While some might not expect the Warriors to veer in the direction this track takes, rest assured, it’s all Dom and Mark. It shows some of their roots and the influence they’ve had on dance and dj culture, while casting a bright light on the future of it.
Following their releases on OFF Recordings, Suara & Light my Fire, FAT SUSHI deliver a glistening single on Sex Panda White. “Send Me” is deeply influenced by 80s shimmer, topped with sweeping synths and layered with moody kicks.
The single gets some massive remix treatment from Moonwalk who replaces some of the 80s gloss of the original with a more sinister and dark vibe, taking the track nearly into the depths of techno. Watch for the release to drop on April 28.
Oh, and here’s Fat Sushi’s latest free download if you missed it too!
KRUSE & NURENBERG are back with a two-track release on Berlin’s OFF Recordings. On the a-side, “Boom Boom Ciao” opens with a classic house stomp. It escalates rather quickly, booming with a driving bassline and filtered keys. On the flip, “Two Stories” is a bit more chilled. If the title track is peak hour material, then the b-side might do well to give the dance floor a bit of a breather. This track remains a deep affair however, perfect to get lost in while dancing with your eyes closed in dimly lit spaces.
What place comes to mind when you think of Techno? Berlin? Detroit? How about small town Italy? If this sounds strange, you may be forgiven in forgetting that much of Techno’s roots owes itself in part to Italo Disco of the late 70′s and early 80′s. In contrast to the upbeat, pop-y Italo Disco, today’s Italian Techno is characteristically quite deep and dark by comparison, even when compared to its contemporaries from Germany and the USA. The latest release by the duo LABBRATEK is no exception.
“Water Ice On Mercury 8.7″ features remixes by SCAM and EXILE. While the former is a classic Techno thumper and the later is a nice little spacey Electro number (not to be confused with Electro House), the deep, dubby, atmospheric elements of the original really sets the tone for the entire release. Perfect for dark basements or headphone listening alike.
