Yippee kiyay Mr. Falcon! There’s some sweet Deep House in town! Just released on Nurvous Records is the début single from Mr. Falcon, a duo consisting of French Express co-founder Blueshift and fellow Philadelphia resident Ily. The single is called Landing Lights which, once you hear the track, seems quite fitting and comes equipped with a reMix from Rhythm Operator.
Landing Lights deftly mixes in some slick 80s lead lines into an undulating Deep House groove. Pulsating, almost Italo, synths craft out a Sci-Fi warehouse vibe from punchy bass and haunting pads. Riding a booming kick drum, the robotic dance hits hard, infecting your brain with a Euro meets Chicago collision will leave you wanting more. We are already eagerly awaiting Mr. Falcon’s next work.
Brooklyn’s AIMES seems determined to bring a little warmth and summery vibe to these cold winter months with his last few releases. The latest in his series of free singles is Time For Us, and like the others, shows off AIMES’ ability to perfectly blend influences from number of styles that are hot right now, and make them all sound personally unique.
“Vibe Huse” as AIMES calls it, presents us with a heady cocktail of Deep House and Tropical Disco, with just the tiniest hint of Chicago in the mix. A thundering beat provides the backbone for a dazzling array of swing fuelled synths. Blissful arpeggios chug along in the background while the tracks focus is taken by a demon bassline and some sweet island keys. Just sink into this one.
With Tropical vibes merging with the UK Deep House sound these days, it looks like we’re set for a summer of blissful, dreamy tunes. New York’s Disco don Chris Malinchak kicks things off with his new tune, Forever, which he’s dropping as a freebie ahead of the release of his next proper single. Malinchak surprised everyone last year with two UK chart topping singles, So Good To Me peaking at number two and it looks like he’s going to be continuing that trend into 2014.
Forever leans on subby basses to get a hypnotic club vibe going. Laying down an easy going House groove, Malinchak peppers the track with Tropical purcussion and infuses a drifting, soulful, vocal sample into a carefree beach party tune. Listen up peeps, this is the sound of the summer right here.
Bring the summertime to your winter months with the new single from Canadian Disco Chillwaver Box Of Wolves. Bringing you the sequel to his critically acclaimed début single, Boy, Box Of Wolves once again lets the voice of Christa Vi glide over his smooth keys and warm beach-bound beats as he delivers Let’s Start Again.
Stepping up for reMix duties on this carefree release are UK Producer Meloder, who’s intricate Deep House treatment is both nostalgic and forward thinking, Brooklyn’s AIMES, who delivers one of the biggest Tropical Disco tunes of the year and DeltaFoxx, who has the big ElectroPop arena covered.
With something for every dancefloor, the Let’s Start Again single is on target to be packing underground dancefloors this summer with the likes of Jerry Bouthier (JBAG), Ben Macklin (Cassette Club), P A U L I E, Rüfüs, Ali Jaimeson, Polar Sun and Jowie Schulner showing early support.
Belgian drum machine master ATTAR!’s latest reMix is released this week. As part of the reMix package for Coma Coast1989/The Ritual double A-side, Renaud Deru injects a little strobe-light vibe into the ElectroPop release. Get ready for a hypnotic club stormer.
Going deep into the roots of House, ATTAR! serves up a little Chicago and a little Detroit in this warehouse collision. the machine beauty of early Techno meets the hedonistic groove of early House, replete with pulsating Bleep House basslines and doomy vocals. Taking the tunes title literally, this reMix perfectly conjures an underground late 80s mood, when the beats were raw and the bass heavy.
Hold tight for something Deep and Funky right now from new British producer Dots Per Inch. He’s gearing up for the release of his début EP, Don’t Stop on Tiefblau, next month, but until then has given away an array of storming House beats to keep you going. Check out his latest tune, This Girl, and Get Up from last month below.
This Girl mixes up a bit of Chicago, a bit of Garage and a bit of UK Deep House into one synth heavy floorfiller. A nice balance between retro and contemporary This Girl delivers big time on driving Garage-y beats, killer basslines and a pitched Usher vocal line that flows perfectly with the warehouse groove. Get Up is more of the same strobe light madness, this time a bit darker and deeper, reminiscent somewhat of early Warp Records Bleep House, with Dubby bass and Sci-Fi keys creating an intoxicating soundtrack. Two pure dancefloor jams that bode interesting things for Dots Per Inch’s EP.
Blueshift – Winter ‘14 Promo. = Here’s a pretty slick selection from Philly DJ Blueshift who’s about to release his latest track on Nurvous Records. There’s a ton of cutting edge House of all varieties up in here, so get involved.
Mexican producer Bronx has delivered and absolute stormer of a track in the form of his new release for Nervous Records. A double A-side single, the tracks What You Want and U&I bring some Deep House vibes to his Disco sound and cement the mans reputation as one of the finest producers to emerge in the last twelve months. U&I is our pick of the single, pure club gold.
The track does occasionally serve up some Inner City style old school House vibes, but mainly the groove concentrates of a powerful Deep House tirade that is as funky as it is hypnotic. This one is unashamedly for the dancefloor, and nowhere else. But drop it on the dancefloor and you’ll have the crowd eating out of your hand. Thick bass, relentless beats, bouncing stabs and a low vocal to keep things soulful; this one has it all.
Deep warehouse vibes right here from the new single from AeroPop supergroup €urocrats, a collaboration between Vito Aeroplane and Dimitri From Paris. Getting twisted and dark, as opposed to their more Boogie laden previous single Follow Me, this single comes in two flavours, 606 and 909, and we bet you can imagine what to expect from either.
Whilst the 909 version is pure Acid tinged Chicago House madness, it;s the 606 version that caught or eye. Stripped of the occasionally harsh 909 beats, this version relies on a more synthetic feel courtesy of the 606 purcussion. Coupled with pulsating vintage synths and a voice of doom, this one is a hypnotic, Acid fuelled, jam for dark backrooms and seedy after-parties. Retro floorfilling goodness.
German deep and soulful House producer Arcadis is back with a brand new EP. A storming collection of tunes from a guy who is fast becoming one of our favourite Deep/Garage-y/UK-ish/Bass House artists. Arcadis mixes up a load of Old School 90s House, Chicago vibes, UK Bass and Deep House with shuffling Garage beats.
In Your Eyes, the lead track of the similarly titled EP, is one of his finest to date. Exactly the kind of tune we’d love to hear right in the middle of a dancefloor session. Hypnotic to the fullest, the track growls along on the strength of 909 beats and deep, rumbling, bass. A deftly used vocal line ties the tune together nicely, especially in the surprisingly euphoric builds. We’d say this was a House crate essential.
