It’s kinda great when someone new catches our ear. This track from New York based, Canadian ex-pat, KIESZA does just that. There’s a tinge of a 90s vibe in this house tune and despite its overt pop sensibilities, I think I’m going to play this a lot. The video below was shot in one take too. Outstanding.
OFF Recordings are celebrating their fifth birthday with a smashing EP, featuring a number of core artists on their roster. Proving that OFF Recordings is much more than just a label, they gathered some of the closest members of the OFF family for the release as well as for a series of parties world wide, all in celebration of the milestone.
The first track on the EP comes in the form of a three-way collaboration from ANDRE CROM, CHI THANH, and KEVIN KNAPP. This is a big house stomper, loaded in the low end with smooth vocals for something of a hip-house vibes.
ROBOSONIC and MAT.JOE get back together for yet another fantastic bass-house inspired tune. The epic breakdown in this one provides some much needed dancefloor relief during a deep and stompy set. It would be nearly impossible not to get the heart rate back up once the bassline starts swinging again.
Finally, PURPLE DISCO MACHINE and TEENAGE MUTANTS pair up once again for a funky journey. Loads of tension and release here with the tune’s resonating low end and truncated vocal samples.
Hitting the streets roughly two months ago with their first release, G-Mafia Records have made a run of it. The Brazilian label’s latest, from DOGREEN, captures the essence of the g-house movement – low slung kicks pounding over simple vocal samples. The standout is the DASH GROOVE mix but the original and JUAN KPAUL remix stand on their own as well. Peep below and grab the EP on beatport.
Swiss duo, FAT SUSHI, made their mark within underground clubland by signing their debut EPs on one of our favourite labels, OFF Recordings. Their rich production caught our ear as well as those in the know.
The latest from the pair is a five track EP (three originals and two remixes) on Oliver Koletzki’s label Light My Fire. Lightly dusted with 80s shimmer and glitter, the shine from the EP comes from the luxurious depth of the both “Problems” and “What You Need,” two sun-soaked tracks longing for dim dancefloors in the black of night.
Edit: Ralph and Dan uploaded full-length previews of the tracks after we published this so we’ve updated the post accordingly.
The title track of the EP finds comfort in the shadows. Tinted with a slight sense of melancholy, the techy elements combined with its buoyant bassline just might pinch a few eyelids shut on the dancefloor.
Kyrill & Redford’s edit of “Problems” is lush too. This one just might be my favourite from the release. Really love how the tune changes gears after the breakdown (sorry for the small snippet) capturing everything from the original and twisting it with a garage bassline that would keep me bouncing for hours.
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.
