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.
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.
Dutch dj/producer QUINTEN 909 has been getting into the g-house game lately. His latest, a collaboration with fellow Dutchman DONAGRANDI, cuts one of the most iconic vocal samples into a flanged-disco jam. Get on the free download then.
Here’s one from a few months back. Also worth the click and free download.
If you like house music in the twilight hours, KEVIN KNAPP‘s latest for OFF Recordings is exactly what you’re after. Brooding and sinsister, the two originals and a remix from EINMUSIK, have a firm grasp on the dark corners of the dance floor and they’re not letting go.
Pure summer vibes on this deep jam from JUST KIDDIN. The single is released by hot-tipped crew at Eton Messy with a full release coming soon in collaboration with FFRR. In the mean time, snap it up over at Beatport.
In honour of my latest release “313″ on KMS Records, here’s my July Chart which features tunes from Detroit Artists and Labels, as well as tunes heavily influenced by the Detroit sound.
John Norman – 313 [KMS]
My latest release for Kevin Saunderson’s legendary label, and a tune I am extremely proud of. Check out this past week’s Drumcode podcast for support from Karotte for one of the remixes, too!
The Yellowheads – Submerged [Alleanza]
This is easily one of my favourite tunes right now. A great old school synth line atop a sharp snare and great percussion, and great vocal. What more could you want?
Sasha Carassi – Old Fashioned Lover [Phobiq]
Starting out with a nice hard drum kick and a piano line that just grows and grows, and again a solid house-inspired vocal, this is a solid party tune.
Inner City – Big Fun (Kevin’s E-Dancer Dub) [KMS]
The original is such an inspiring tune, and this version is just the perfect dark and dirty update. There isn’t a preview link to be found, so you’ll just have to head over to buy it.
Buy on Beatport
Derrick May – Strings of Life [R&S]
This tune! Synths, piano, ticky-tack drums. An absolute classic and a tune you should be familiar with. Derrick is a legend.

Dykkon - Repulse [Drumcode]
Dirty and relentless, with a great acid line running through it, this is a fantastic late-night tune.
Infiniti aka Juan Atkins & Orlando Voorn – Game One [Tresor]
Juan Atkins & Orlando Voorn team up to give us this scorcher under the “Infiniti” alter ego for Tresor. It was a tough cal for me between the fantastic original, and the brooding Rennie Foster remix – both classic tunes re-released digitally in 2013.
Ray Kajioka – Strike [Kanzleramt]
I really love the space in this track, it feels like it fills many parts of your mind, and sounds killer on a big system. Sweet, dark and sexy techno.
Eddie Amador & Alex Costa – New Sound [KMS]
Alex Costa is an artist I’ve respected for awhile, so I was thrilled to see this promo come through my mailbox. A relentless detroit “new world sound from the underground” it just screams 4am warehouse business.
Petter B – Imitate [H-Productions]
There is such forward propulsion in this tune, from the high hats, to the movement of the melodic line. Such energy!
