T-204 is a new podcast series showcasing the oustanding techno talent in the prairie city. I was very pleased to be asked to be the fourth featured artist, following Andre Bisseck, Sanctuary Resident Justin Kace, and MEMETIC Director Nathan Zahn.
At its core T_204 is about two things: techno and Winnipeg. T_204 is not a war cry for purists, rather it is an homage to Winnipeg’s electronic music origins. Manitoba is a cold dark place for more than half of year, which is why it pairs perfectly with techno.
My mix is 75 minutes of brooding techno, and includes a preview of my next two releases signed to the legendary Detroit Techno label KMS Records, along with tunes on Stripped Recordings, Drumcode, Tronic, Deeperfect, Suara, Bitten & More. I hope you enjoy this, and strongly recommend you give the T-204 Soundcloud and Facebook a follow for more tasty audio treats.
Taking disco to new heights, the latest from DCUP has me burning up inside. The single, “Someone Told Me,” comes with remixes from La Felix, Flexcop, Space Jump Salute and Backstroke. Listening to the original, it’s hard to imagine anything wrong with the world – the tune is like the soundtrack to smiles and sunshined.
So, ROUTE94 have been on everyone’s hit list, including breakbeat vetrans, FREESTYLERS. Despite the fact that the original hasn’t been released yet, Freestylers took it upon themselves to tweak out a breaky refix. We’re so glad they did because it’s just plain wonderful. Also, it’s a free download.
If you haven’t heard the original yet, you better fix that. After all, it’s only been played over 2 million times. That’s not hyperbole. That’s fact.
Originally made only as a one off for JAMIE GEORGE and HANNA WANTS, Four40 Records founder, HYBRID THEORY, reworked “Butterflies” into smooth garage-tinged floor filler.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.
OFF Recordings label boss ANDRE CROM and long time friend CHI THANH come together on this remix of Jakatta’s legendary track “American Dream” released on JOEY NEGRO‘s label, Z Records.The promo text says the tune is one for the chilled out summer moments by the pool or on the beach, which could be the case, but the low end is so submersive it would also work when the sun has been drowned by the darkness of night.
It’s been hard to keep up with ROB MADE and his latest project, Sleazy G, the g-house sub-label under the Sleazy Deep umbrella. Releases have been coming rapid fire, like the rat-tat-tat-tat from an automatic weapon. Beats boom more like canons though. Take for instance Bangerz Vol. 1, a little compilation featuring house music gangstas running deep in thug life. Boom.
