Partyfine is just full of collaborations, isn’t it? most of them involving label boss Yuksek. So it’s no surprise that the imprint’s latest release, the forthcoming Don’t Miss, sees the man himself teaming-up with the one and only Alex Metric and Aussie producer-of-the-moment Anna Lunoe. Yuksek and Metric bill themselves as The Alexanders and the track broken ground on Annie Mac’ show this past weekend.
Don’t Miss is a cheeky House juggernaut. Driven by a mind-bendingly infectious Italo flavour bassline, the track is a full-on Electro-House stomper the like of which you don’t see so much these days, making us feel nostalgic for the Electro-House boom days of 2007/2008. Spikey synths and abrasive burbles rub shoulders with comfortable retro stabs and Anna’s mantra vocals to deliver one of those peak time anthems.

Get Myself Together is taken from the forthcoming new EP from London noisenik Fake Blood. The Waiting EP is out next month hold three tracks including this monster. It’s the first we’ve heard from Theo Keating in a while, but the EP proves he’s lost none of his eclectic dancefloor flair.
Get Myself Together hits the ground running with stomping House beats and building drones before catapulting itself into a funky cacophony of string stabs and brooding basslines, all kept soulful with a big vocal sample. The Garage-y flavour to the beats gives the track a floorfilling swing, giving the track a nice complexity underneath the mantra synths.

Fahrenheit 32 is the new tune from acclaimed German duo Digitalism, and according to them the start of a new era. “‘Fahrenheit 32’ marks a new direction for us both musically and creatively. It’s not just a milestone on a long journey of ours, but also a peace offering for what’s about to come.” they say, which kinda’ mean ‘we’re making House now’, and if this new tune is anything to go by it’s gonna’ be an awesome time for new music from Digitalism.
Just check out that bassline! Infectious as hell. Fahrenheit 32 is a pretty progressive tune that is well suited to the big room, despite lacking the big lead builds. It’s be more accurate to call it an ‘intelligent big room tune’. Fun and carefree, but with a serious concentration on sound design, the tune will win you over with it’s catchy hooks and kinetic House beats. More like this please guys!

Reset!’s I Need You was one of the big songs of the summer, big grinding Electro-House with a Disco soul. It occasionally veered a little too far of the Turbofunk path into American ‘EDM’ territory, but on the whole was a slamming tune. So, a few months later here’s London bass jockey DiscoSocks to smooth over the tracks rough edges and reel it back into a dancefloor fun arena. It’s part of the official reMix package that was released this weekend. Get on-board.
DiscoSocks morphs the aggressive growl of the original into a Chromeo-esque slice of slick Disco. Leaning heavily, of course, of the Sock’s awesome bass playing, the track revels in the irresistible bassline running throughout. Layering that with slick Disco licks and heavyweight vintage synths DiscoSocks makes everything, from the hook to the vocals, just that little bit groovier. We just can’t imagine a situation that would prevent you for moving to this one, not even if your dead. If you can’t dance to this one then it may be time to reassess what you’re doing with your life. DiscoSocks really is rising to the top of the London Disco scene.

We’ve alluded to it before, but we now think it’s about time that someone sat down with the current crop of post-Electro Techno producers and explained to them, that they are just making EBM. The only difference between a lot of modern EBM and Eleccy Teccy producers is the publications they get written about in and the venues they are booked to play. Case in point, Belgian Electroheads Goose, who, admittedly, have always had Electro-Rock leanings and always been more than a little EBM anyway, but who now are primed to jump on board with the likes of Gesaffelstein in gruff arpeggio world-domination.
Check out their latest single, released next week. Falling’s open-hi-hat-on–beat 4/4 rhythm is pure Industrial stomp and it’s juggernaut arpeggiated hook is dancefloor twisted 242 magic. The track was mixed by French legend Alex Gopher and sets it’s self apart from the crowd not in it’s beats or basslines, but in it’s mastery of energy. The gradually rising, simplistic, vocals become a mantra guiding you through the highs and depths of the track. It’s a deceptively minimal tune that is always in complete control. More sophisticated than 99.9% of modern EBM? Yes definitely, but sonically right in the same boat.

OK kids, pencils down and pay attention, there’s a new reMix from Mr. Grum on the scene. This time around Grum’s subject matter is young Dutch producer Martin Garrix, who in suitably Dutch producer fashion is a purveyor of all things big room, Prog Housey, Trancey, and cheese filled. Taking Garrix’s ‘hit’, Animals, Grum proceeds to make things a bit slicker, a bit more sophisticated, without loosing any of the dancefloor euphoria.
Grum loads up on big swirling synths for this one. By this time Grum has amassed enough experience with a wide variety of dancefloor styles that he can effortlessly meld them into one monster whole. Crisp lead lines, burbling basses, and the perfect build, all lead into a 303 tweaking finale that sees Grum in new Acid-Techno territories. A massive floor destroyer that we fully expect is going to get caned over the coming months.

It’s been a good old while since Australian producer Airwolf graced these pages. Over a year in fact, and even longer since his last release. Well, it’s good to know he hasn’t been waiting his time, the man is about to drop a huge new single on Onelove. Keeping in mind that Australia is upside down and it’s heading toward summer there, Hanging On is the perfect poolside party starter.
Hanging On is an undulating Disco-House tune that revolves around a dirty synth Funk bassline. A chunky, filtered, Disco hook permeates the track, which is peppered worth modulated vocal snatches and horn flourishes. Hanging On delivers elastic grooves and full on summery good-time vibes. A secret weapon in your crate? Check out the Radio Edit, which is pretty weird if we’re honest, it’s only two and a half minutes long, which is tiny even for radio edits (which usually knock around the 3m30s mark) and never really sells the song as much as it should. Hold out for the slamming club mix.
Edit: It seems that since posting this Onelove have swapped out the Radio Edit for the full Club Mix, so enjoy.
