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.
Ah, here’s a track with some 808 put to good use. ZHU‘s “Faded,” a track that’s garnered nearly four million plays on his SoundCloud account, does a little strip show in the latest bootleg noodle, cooked up by one half of SLYDE. JASON LAIDBACK pulls out the satin sheets for a sultry bass and breaks re-rub. Grab the free download below.
Here’s Zhu’s original. I know you heard it, but it’s worth listening to again.
Erase Records have been holding down the deep house vibes for a little longer than a hot minute. The label and artists on it have a wondrous ability to draw on classic samples and work their production magic into pure dance floor joy. The latest from the label’s founder, WASABI is more of the same. Co-produced with HAWAIIAN BOY, the track takes Modjo’s “Lady” (which samples Chic) for a dive in the deep end of the pool. Summer’s here, let’s go for a swim.
Winnipeg ex-pat CYCLIST has been covering huge ground with his brand of disco. Working with the likes of Goldroom, Rogue Vogue, Anoraak, and a slew of others, he’s positioned himself well. What we’re saying is, wow, congrats. On top of this, he recently co-founded Mani / Pedi Records.
Most recently, Cyclist (aka Mark Penner) released an exclusive tune with Toolroom Records, on the imprint’s sun-kissed Poolside Ibiza compilation. As the second track in the collection, “Sunrise” sets the tune for a blissful journey. That’s not to say the track, which features the soulful vocals of MAIKO WATSON, doesn’t stand on its own. This is a summer jam, rich and deep, and easy to get lost in.
Here are a few more projects Cyclist has been working on, some for free download.
Back in February when we posted KIESZA‘s runaway chart topper, “Hideaway,” we had no idea the Canadian ex-pat would have skyrocketed to stardom like she did. Well, it happened and we’re not sorry. The tune is phenomenal and she deserves the credit.
Her latest single, “Giant In My Heart” is yet another 90s-tipped house tune. Kiesza’s vocals sit restlessly on round kicks. The matted cowbells, synth stabs, shakers, and hand claps lift the cut like her suspenders do to her acid wash jeans. Here’s a tune equally at home on the dancefloor as it is playing loudly in a convertible. Watch for it on Lokal Legend
