THE BEATANGERS & BOOGIE VICE: RIDE WITH ME [LOULOU RECORDS]

loulou records 50th release

Here’s a tune that has my click finger ready. Coming out on May 29 as part of the LouLou Records‘ 50th release THE BEATANGERS and BOOGIE VICE “Ride With Me” comes at you like a fast moving party bus. Everyone on this ride is full of smiles, funked up with a bassline smooth enough to roll over a monster truck.

Also worth checking out is the compilation mix from the label’s founders, Kolombo and LouLou Players.

TOOLROOM IBIZA 2014

toolroom ibiza 2014

It’s no understatement that Toolroom Records is one of the strongest independent labels pushing underground dance music and it’s culture. It goes without saying that the label plays a prominent role in breaking big names and accelerating the careers of the talented artists releasing material on the imprint. The label’s success has been proven time and time again.

Their latest compilation, Toolroom Ibiza 2014, showcases an unmistakable selection of Toolroom approved grooves that perfectly encapsulate the sound of the White Isle. In perfect time for the opening parties, it is an essential accompaniment to lazy days by the pool, hedonistic club nights, and hazy after parties spread over 65 tracks (yes 65!) and three lovingly crafted dj mixes. With the essential blend of new cuts and 28 exclusive tracks from the worlds finest producers, the compilation includes music from label boss MARK KNIGHT, Breach, Tensnake, MK, Route 94, Hot Since 82, Rene Amesz, Nice7, Prok & Fitch, Doorly, Ben Pearce, Tourist, Maya Jane Coles, My Digital Enemy, Hannah Wants, Bontan, UMEK, Jay Lumen, Chus & Ceballos, Beckwith, London Grammar and many many more.

The entire release runs over 10 and a half hours. Like, what!? You read that right. Over 10 hours of quality house music. This might just be the only musical purchase needed for the entire summer. Honestly, it’s kind of stupid how good this is. Below you’ll find a few previews but for the full tracklist, just click here and pre-order it from iTunes now.

The relatively new imprint Body Heat wants to spread some disco love. The Milan-based label captures the flared vibe from the 70s and tints it with a smidge of electro, creating a genre all its own. Turbo funk has been around a while and Body Heat are simply showcasing the Italian born energy. In doing so the label has four tracks for free download from Toxo, Rocoe & Umberto Lumber, The Couch Potatoes, and Msystem.

CHESHIRE & SLYNK: SNATCHING IT BACK

cheshire - simply lifted

CHESHIRE has been a go-to for mid-tempo swinging tunes and other oddities. His latest release dropped on Adapted Records on April 28 and features 10 cuts full of bass and glitch. The album runs heavy with funk, soul, swing, and blues – material that might not normally make it into many crates. The fact of the matter is, any crowd with a penchant for a good time who are willing to get down will appreciate the craft in this record.

One of the standouts is his collaboration with SLYNK. The bass tones rumble under a bed of funk and soul. Equal parts ghetto funk and glitch, this one will curl lips into a wide grin while getting feet off the ground.

It’s not fair just to point out a single tune so here are a few other standouts. Don’t stop here though, grab the long player (which also features some of mid-tempo bass all stars) on Beatport.
