NU ERA: GIVE IT ALL [FOUR40 RECORDS]

nu era - give it all

NU ERA and Four40 Records are back this time with Give It All an addictive new single which will shine through to the summer months. Capturing the warm vibes of garage, wrapped in glimmering piano house, the original sits well poolside and on shaking dancefloors.

The package also comes with a bass heavy mix of “Give It All” which rumbles as well as the original shines. Seriously big tune here.

Two additional originals “Source” and “Came Into My Life” round out the release with the former capable of lifting more heavy weight while the latter fairs much lighter with a slight disco flare.

Grab all four cuts on Juno.

GORGON CITY: HERE FOR YOU FEAT. LAURA WELSH

gorgon city here for you feat laura welsh

GORGON CITY‘s recent successes is tantamount of the duo’s quality production and quite possibly influenced by a cultural shift in people’s taste in music. The London boys, Matt and Kye (who you may know as RackNRuin and Foamo), continue with their rich garage-influenced production on their latest effort “‘Here For You’” featuring the sultry vocals of LAURA WELSH. Once again, they use their skills to perfectly encapsulate everything that is so exciting and vital about British dance music in 2014. “‘Here For You’” further establishes the pair as one of the most exciting and talented new acts in the ever-flourishing landscape of British club savvy pop and paves the way for the duo’s forthcoming debut album due later in the year.

Gorgon City instantly became a favourite of mine upon hearing them a year ago. Check these, including a pair of free downloads, if you haven’t already.

MIGHTY DUB KATZ: IT’S JUST ANOTHER GROOVE (STANTON WARRIORS REBOUNCE) [FREE DOWNLOAD]

stanton warriors just another groove

Really loving the swell of classic tunes making their way into the minds and (digital) crates of producers lately. The latest free download from STANTON WARRIORS flashes back to the mid 90s with their rebounce of the seminal house tune from the MIGHTY DUB KATZ. The original was built on a certified disco hit (Cloud One’s “Disco Juice”). The linkage doesn’t stop there though. The Mighty Dub Katz is another alias of FATBOY SLIM and the production is credited to The Pizzaman, another of Mr. Cook’s aliases.

Long story short though, the Warriors double-stack the drums in this edit, “to make people dance.”

B-SIDE & DETTA: 3 IS THE MAGIC NUMBER [EP2]

b-side detta - 3 is the magic number ep2

B-SIDE and DETTA have more than a good thing going with their latest project. The pair are delivering three, three-track EPs for free. In their second installment they use a classic sample from Jurassic 5, cut up for a heavy dose of mid-tempo bass.

The second track on this EP samples both Pink Floyd and Mary J Blige combined with a massive drum n bass influence in the form of Ray Keith’s “Sing Time,” for yet another mid-tempo track.

 

B-Side and Detta up the tempo and push out more basslines, twisting Caro Emerald’s swing tune into a drum n bass stomper to keep the crowds jumpin’.
