Out in May is the new release from dancefloor renaissance man Ben Mono on MadTech. It’s taken from MadTech’s MadTech 02: Ibiza compilation alongside the likes of Human Life, Bontan, Celsius, Leftwing & Kody, Josh Butler and Alexis Raphael. The track, Gamma, sees Mono in Deep House mode but giving it a twist of something close to our hearts, Bleep House. Check it out.
The lead lines or hooks of Gamma could have been taken directly from a release in the brief golden ear of the Warp Records cantered Bleep House scene. The Sci-Fi stabs and synthetic House robo-riffs could easily slide onto any number of records from that period; but here Mono layers them over a booming, festival ready, UK Deep House rhythm section. This is machine funk at it’s finest. Whether you came for the bass or to jack, this one’s got it all.

Ben Mono’s Gamma is taken from the MadTech 02: Ibiza compilation; released 11th May.
Check out Maya Jane Coles’ reMix of Tiga Vs. Audition (Matthew Dear)’s hype inducing Let’s Go Dancing. Tiga’s most explosive track for al long while, Let’s Go Dancing caused a bit of a stir when it was released a couple of months ago, now with the release of the reMix EP looming we can wrap out ears around this, the one we were most looking forward to.
Maya takes things Deep and Techy with this one. Six minutes of hypnotic warehouse sounds with a fantasy twist. With a seeming nod to early Warp Bleep House Maya playfully skims magical melodies and psychedelic synths over to surface of a pounding House groove. The growling vocal refrain only adds to the enigmatic flavour of Maya’s mix. This one is going to get a serious club pounding, expect to be looing all sense of time on the dancefloor to this one very soon.
♫ Tiga Vs. Audion – Let’s Go Dancing (Maya Jane Coles Dancing In The Dark reMix)
Tiga Vs. Audion’s Let’s Go Dancing reMix package is coming 10th November and includes remixes from Maya Jane Coles, Breach, Solomun and joeFarr.

Here’s the video, directed by Bo Mirosseni. It’s testifying madness.
While you’re here, get on-board with ElectroPop artist Patrick Baker’s funky vocal edit of the track, layering the original with a few choice snatches of his own talented vocal. Adding a subtle new dimension to the track, Patrick drags When A Fire Starts To Burn even further into the 90s.

Disclosure’s début album Settle is released 3rd June.
This is White Noise. It’s a collaboration between awesome House duo Disclosure and even awesomer Electro R&B duo AlunaGeorge. It reader it head last night. It broke the internet.
And you can see why, the amount of talent featured in this track isn’t wasted. Disclosure create the perfect, otherworldly, soundtrack. Part Acid House, part Bleep House, all warehouse, White Noise is a nostalgic trip for anyone who was raving in 1990, but the addition of Aluna’s vocals give the whole affair a soulful Pop twist. No-one really thought of ElectroPop Bleep House back in 1990, maybe if they had the scene would have lasted for longer than a year. this is the prefect melding of deep Dance Music vibes and Pop sheen. amazing. (P.S. I refuse to call Bleep House ‘Yorkshire Bleep & Bass’, we called it Bleep House at the time, and I’m sticking with that!)
