DEEKLINE takes influence from his own roots in the UK Garage scene on this one, putting a fresh spin on that classic 2 step sound. Crisp synths, bouncy bass line, ethereal vocal stabs and slight ragga undertones. In this free download, Deekline offer this sexy 2 step number “Unplugged” as a taste of what to expect from his new label Hot Roxx.

Swiss duo, FAT SUSHI, are increasingly becoming a go-to source for those deep vibes that straddle the lighter side of garage. The huge, bubbling basslines reflect a clear throwback to warehouse parties of the 90s, combined with soothing sonics for my aging state of mind. In their latest, a remix for MANUEL SAHAGUN, on NHAN SOLO‘s Mother Recordings Fat Sushi give us more of those lush textures with enough wumph to keep me dancing like I was 19 again.
To celebrate their sixth consecutive beatport top 100 release, they’re also giving away ROLAND CLARK‘s a cappella from their single on Suara. Go say hi, and thank them via the links below.

Originally made only as a one off for JAMIE GEORGE and HANNA WANTS, Four40 Records founder, HYBRID THEORY, reworked “Butterflies” into smooth garage-tinged floor filler. The vocals have been pitched down, creating a bit of a soulful feel. The four-four and deep bassline, combined with some delicious key stabs are all stomp-worthy though. Hard not to get down to this.

PLUMP DJs are one of those acts I’ve thankfully crossed off my bucket list. Their sets are legendary and their ability to flow between genres is practically unmatched. While playing in Manchester at Lowdown & Dirty‘s fourth birthday, they did what was expected…and more. Thankfully they recorded the set. Listen and grab the free download below.

FAT SUSHI‘s are absolutely on point with this free download. Big and round, garage-tinged bassline under a tight vocal sample makes it very conducive for dancefloor workouts. The Swiss pair have a cool story behind it too, check it after the jump.

Denver’s OPTION4 hit us up with a few freebees a few months ago and we’ve been hooked on his output since. He dropped some hints that he was working on something special for Nurvous / Nervous Records and we’ve been waiting anxiously for to taste what he had cooking.
My dad always tells me, “hunger is the best cook.” Well dad, I’ve been snacking on tunes all morning but this two-track EP is absolutely delicious. “Love Like No Other” hit me with its lush sweeps and sultry vocals from FLASH/LIGHTS where the deepness of the bassline harmonizes in perfect balance.
“Black Cat” is built on similar sumptuous garage-influenced basslines, contrasted slightly with jacking drums and shuffling rhythms. Both tracks are keepers so grab them on beatport.

Black Butter Records has been churning out some of the richest and deep garage and house tunes on the planet. On December 30 they’re releasing a 23 track compilation, Spread Love Vol. 3, of showcasing all of the best talent from the roster as well as some new material straight from the cutting room floor.
