Cassette Club’s Ben Macklin just isn’t letting up this year! Becoming one of the scene’s mote prolific producers, Ben continues his journey into Tropical Disco with this new tune, Physical. Depending on whether you’re a glass half full, or glass half empty, type of person this will either carry you away from these cold winter months to a warmer vibe, or remind you just how must it isn’t summer anymore. Either way, get involved.
Macklin drives things home with a solid House backing, a pumping, tight groove that makes a rock solid base for layers of hazy, almost Chillwavey, synths and samples to dance around the track. Keeping the vibes in check is a hypnotic Island lead line that shines down on the track, bringing the sunshine. This is top-down crusin’ music, although maybe you should wait a few months to act on that. Unless you;re in Australia, in which case go for it.

The Chicago producer who lives and breathes Chicago House Rogue Vogue has turned in another of his storming reMixes. This time he’s featured on the new single from San Francisco outfit Slaptop, who’s Sunrise is released later this month as a Beatport exclusive. Rogue Vogue channels a little Old School Trax on this one, putting his heritage at the fore.
Claps and 909 kicks greet you as you hit play before a barrage of vintage synth stabs. The bass is thick and crisp and shakes the speakers as tight keys dance around the track. Rogue Vogue inject the tune with a little Funk courtesy of a deft organ groove to create contrast with the retro-future sound pallet. Grabbing vocal snatches and depositing them liberally, Rogue Vogue keeps the energy high and spins every element into a enigmatic floorfiller for the warehouse crowd.

Slaptop’s Sunrise is released 20th October.

Black Magic Disco is back in effect with this new slice of House goodness. It’s a reMix of one of the new tunes from US project Glass Slipper; put together by Lisa Cork-Twiss, formerly of Real McCoy, and San Francisco DJ BradElectro. Their new release, the Universal Love Vibe EP, features the track, Caught Up, and BMD’s monster rework of it.
Black Magic Disco comes on string with the early 90s Chicago vibes on this one. The vocal here mixes up big diva moments with a particularly 90s soulful sound, and BMD works them to their dancefloor friendly fullest. Pairing them up with a deep filtered organ and punchy bassline, he hits the House nail on the head and serves up a modern club track that plays to nostalgic bliss in the best way possible. It’s got a nice Poppy sheen too, this could easily be a classic tune; and maybe it’s desisted to be.

Here’s the video for the The Inevitable End version of Röyksopp & Robyn’s Monument. The Inevitable End being Röyksopp’s forthcoming final album release. This album seriously can’t come soon enough.
The clip is mostly footage from Röyksopp & Robyn’s Do It Again tour, which pretty much leaves us pissed that they largely snubbed the UK. Looks like fun.
Röyksopp’s The Inevitable End is released on November.

Final DJs as a solo act still makes my brain hurt something chronic. I absolutely hate writing it, he really should drop it down to ‘Final DJ’ at least, having to write “Final DJs is” is a crime. Well, at least the music is still coming, and still pretty awesome. Check out his new tune, All That Matters for some sunshine bliss on these increasingly cold evenings.
Final DJs delivers a buoyant House tune here with a touch of a SynthWave sheen over the top. Chirpy beats, think synth bass and a euphoric sample bounce around the track with a carefree glee; awaiting the moment those lush, warm synths slide into serve up their solo. Add in some sweet vintage chimes and you’ve got a nice slice of contemporary retro. It’s a free download too.

Route94 delivers possible his best tune to date with his new stormer. It’s an exclusive for Mixmag and Rowan Jones has serves up a wonderful Sci-Di Disco House tune that contains everything we love about both club music and synth music. This is the reason Route94 is fast becoming one of the most sought after in the country.
There’s hints of Boogie and Italo in Shards Of Glass, the cutting digital bassline has got a definite 80s swing to it, and the sparking keys leant toward the Jarre end of the synthesizer scale. Pairing that up with some ridiculously heavy bass and a pounding dancefloor beat Route94 delivers something both retro and contemporary, and ties it all up nicely in a House groove. Awesome stuff!

As if House newcomer SecondCity and ElectroPop/House legend Ali Love’s What Can I Do? wasn’t awesome enough already; along comes a shiny new reMix package courtesy of Ministry Of Sound. Sat on the single is this massive reMix from Grum. Grum’s having an amazing year with a string of slammin’ reMixes alongside his own acclaimed second album; looks like he’s planning to end the year on a high.
You know what to expect from Grum reMix; emotional synths, big sound, driving dancefloor grooves. All present and correct on his mix for SecondCity. Ali Love’s vocals belt out over a slick combination of House Piano and Progressive synths, rising and evolving as the track pounds toward it’s finale. Euphoric and uplifting, Grum deliver another big room killer with this one.

Seattle’s resident groove master Futurewife and ElectroPop three piece Sister Girlfriend seem like the most nightmarish match made in heaven, yet the results are a pure dream. These guys have teamed fellow local resident Tiffany Wan to deliver this tricked out Funk jam, Summer’s End. So sit back, put your feet up and your headphones on, and sink into some of the smoothest sounds around.
Futurewife serves up some infectious rolling bass hooks and Old School Hip Hop beats for his slick vintage Disco to flow over. Thick synth stabs and retro sweeps form a neat package that allows Futurewife and Tiffany Wan to roll out a sweet duet over the top. It’s an interesting combination of influences, but this time too many cooks certainly don’t spoil anything. This melting pot definitely works.
