Traxsource Presents New Music Tuesday (13th, May 2014)
Whats Hot This Week
1. 6th Borough Project – Borough 2 Borough Remixes (Delusions Of Grandeur)
6th Borough Project have just dropped their second LP Borough To Borough to a great reaction with the vinyl holding pole position on the Juno LP chart (knocking Moodymann off the top spot) and garnering much praise from DJ’s and press alike. You know we like a good remix at Delusions Of grandeur and here we present not one but three very different takes on three of the LP tracks. Opening up the A side we have rising star Cuthead serving up his trademark scratchy, swinging MPC beats with clattering percussion and stabbing chords on his excellent remix of Back 2 Black. Perfect, leftfield house music with depth and flair and a perfect example of why the Uncanny Valley regular is picking up so much praise right now. Next up Fantastic Man gets to grips with Read My Mind, bringing a lovely bit of proto-house flavour to the release on this James Mason ‘Nightgruv’ inspired remix. Chiming DX7 synths and lush pads are the order of the day here, creating a lovely warm up vibe before going heads down and dubby for the final 3 minutes. Flipping over we’re treated to some lush, slo-mo-lo-slung vibes on the Ben La Desh remix of Walk Away, the Dutch producer teasing things out with a chugging 7 minute workout which will sound dreamy and creamy on a big system.

6. Armand Van Helden – A Track Called Jack / I Want Your Soul (Southern Fried Records)
7. Atjazz & Jullian Gomes – The Gift The Curse (Atjazz Record Company)
It’s one of the most interesting hook-ups in modern house music, and it’s yielded an album that will tickle ears and tease bodies for some time to come. They may live well over 10 000km apart, but the beat brotherhood between UK house legend Atjazz and SA’s most promising young producer, Jullian Gomes, is clear to hear. Their collaborative album ‘The Gift The Curse’, blends Martin “Atjazz” Iveson’s deft and experienced touch with the Gomes’s keen modern ear for soulful tech. Throw in vocal cameos from the likes of Osunlade, Robert Owens, Wumni, Zano and more and you have a forward-thinking, funky-as-hell long-player. Pretoria-born Jullian Gomes grew up alongside a record junkie of an older Cousin in Michael G (together they’ve recorded as G.Family – and picked up a SAMA nomination) and was absorbing the midtempo sounds of Tshwane’s vibrant club scene before he was a teenager. Little wonder he graduated to represent South Africa at the Red Bull Music Academy in London in 2011, had a subsequent smash hit with “Love Song 28” (also remixed by Ewan Pearson and Charles Webster) and ended up remixing Black Coffee, The Layabouts and Omar. But it was an unsolicited remix of Atjazz featuring Robert Owens “Love Someone” that caught the ear of Iveson. Anyone with a passing interest in house music has heard of Atjazz. The north-eastern Englander has been producing since the mid-90s, and is responsible for hundreds of remixes, including ones for Bob Sinclar, Jazzanova and SA’s own C.9ine. When he toured the country in 2011 he met Gomes at the infamous House 22 in Sunnyside, and the two struck up a relationship that’s been blossoming ever since. The two ended up collaborating on “Overshadowed” in 2012, and the working experience and success it achieved leads to this transcontinental hook-up. Gomes explains that the title of the album refers to the fact that with every setback, there’s an opening. It could also sum up the cross-continental span that the two have bridged to create something this special. Enthusiasm meets experience; Tshwane meets Derby; youthful endeavour meets well-honed aptitude. It’s a marriage made in heaven that makes for an album blessed with magical overtones. A landmark that sets the local beat bench extremely high.
