Featuring the vocals of Alanna Stuart of Bonjay, this ep from SMALLTOWN DJs is jam packed with club tunes ranging from dancehall rhythms to house versions. If your ears work, you can’t not have fun at a Smalltown DJs gig. That’s a scientific fact. Look it up. Remixes come from SO SHIFTY, OLIVER, TOP BILLIN, EMYND, JUBILEE & MOMAZING.
Preview in SoundCloud or Bandcamp, both are below.
The Canadian duo’s uncanny ability to make crowds feel like schoolkids at recess stems naturally from their focus on maximizing fun for themselves. On the production side, the duo has in the past also released several blends, remixes and re-edits that have been getting play all over the world. They’re focused on making fun dance music with a sense of humour. Not surprisingly, Smalltown DJs production style resembles the squad’s approach to deejaying – polymorphous, party-focused and pretension free. Smalltown DJs’ quest to maximize fun for themselves and others is an ongoing saga.
I never thought I’d like moombahton, but this compilation from TOP BILLIN has changed that. There’s some serious heat and enough bass to fill dump truck. There’s a quick SoundCloud stream below. If you want to explore a bit further, check out the bandcamp widget below that.
Here’s one special club version for you. The remix of Beyonce’s ‘Countdown’ by Jack Beats is a major one but it needed a little Top Billin touch with some island horns, drums and whatnot. Here then is the party version from Finland’s TOP BILLIN.
EMPERATRON is a three-piece dj/producer collective formed in early 2009 in Helsinki, Finland. The trio consists of Duponddupont, Juden and Plus de Massiff who saturate house music with bass and they’re credited with some of the craziest parties in Helsinki for doing just that. Never mind the venues were over capacity, people came to party and Emperatron simply provided the appropriate answer. They’ve since been played massive gigs in Paris, an intense parties in Berlin, St. Petersburg so expect more to come from these bass monsters.
King Riddim is their first EP and features remixes from SHARKSLAYER and a Parisian new-comer, Pressure. I’m all about the original mix though.
STICKY NOODLES, a brand new project by 2 of NYC’s finest, DJ KRAMES & DJ MORSY. If you know anything about dj culture in the US, you’ve heard the names Krames and Morsy, and you even might play their world famous (and very useful) edits and remixes. Both have been providing useful tools for dj use for years, and now it’s time to unleash their ep together, combining ghetto flavoured club music that flirts with Dutch house and bass heavy. This ep contains 4 tracks crafted especially the dj in mind and produced in a way they will bang the club, no doubt about that.
It’s difficult to pick the standout cut, but in my mind, “Kimbo” gets the nod for its sweeping bassline and keys. So here it is folks, enjoy, courtesy of TOP BILLIN.
THEM JEANS unified the east and west. As a DJ and promoter in L.A. he’s thrown massive parties but is also affiliated with PLANT MUSIC, one of the best labels to sprout up over the last few years. Maybe that’s presumptuous to say, but you can’t disagree with his output.
About seven months ago, he dropped his remix of of MUNK‘s “Down in L.A.” which is rich with robotdisco hooks and a bassline so sweet you want to lick it off the floor. This one’s a mover, especially for the ladies. This week though, Plant released the smash single from Munich’s Munk (aka Mathias Modica). The track was released on GOMMA last year but Plant has a whole new set of remixes including Fantastadon, Them Jeans, Grand Theft and Dan-OH.
We are happy to offer the all new and superb Them Jeans remix for to post for download
Also signed to Finland’s TOP BILLIN’ Them Jeans’ “Balloons” is his first EP with them. It’s a funky-styled house number that has a lead weird enough to make you scrunch up your nose and think, what? Nevermind that though, this single pounds. Remixes come from fellow LA boys CAMO UFOS (Mike B & Nate Day), Mad Decent’s own (and Diplo’s studio engineer) DJA and the next big thing in tropical beats, LOL BOYS (don’t let that name fool you, these dudes are for real for real).
