The 12 NEW & hottest releases of the week, right here.
Whats Hot This Week
1. Rancido – Thief (Atjazz Record Company)
Rancido is quickly making his mark in the world of house music and its many sliding genres. Thief is a little more of the chain with its rolling and forceful attitude, it also delivers a sonically stunning sound-scape and drives dance-floors effortlessly. Backing this up is an amazing peice of laidback house music in the form of ‘104’, a string and rhodes layden peice of music for late night chilling, some amazing work from Rancido on this incredible release. Atjazz comes through to fill up the release with his remix of the title song, taking it alittle more astral and electronic but retaining the guts from the original. We’re sure you’re gunna love this one.
2. Lovebirds, Lisa Shaw – Holdin On (Defected)
Having recently produced a stunning remix of Chasing Kurt’s ‘From The Inside’, German producer and DJ Sebastian Doering – AKA Lovebirds – is back with a new 80s synth driven single on Defected Records. Built around luscious vocals from Canadian songstress Lisa Shaw, ‘Holdin On’ (Lovebirds 808ies Matrix) does exactly as its title suggests: Doering plays director for an orchestra of popping 808 percussive melodies and bright, 80s inspired analogue synth work. Lovebirds’ carefully constructed production prowess and the track’s excellent song writing is sure to be a winning combination for this house cross-over gem.
3. Eric Ericksson – The Chi (Local Talk)
Its time for Local Talk to go local again with another Swedish producer, Eric Ericsson. With numerous releases out on labels like Planet E, Fragile and Freerange he’s one of those producers with one foot in the techno scene and another in the more soulful house scene. Basically, he’s not a one trick pony! For his release on Local Talk we would say he lands somewhere between classic Chi-Town house and thumping NYC house groove but without sounding too retro or washed out. Its simply real house music! We begin with Love It, a real bumpy house track with analogue basslines and swinging fender grooves that will work both stateside and in the european house clubs. The second track The Chi is as the title suggest a homage to Chicago with a slight old school Boo Williams feel…dope! But thats not all, to give the release a broader twist we got man of the moment Oskar Offerman (Berlin) to remix Love It for us. Oskar goes more deep with his trademark sound and gives us a dark mix that will sound amazing in your favorite Berlin club of choice.
4. DJ Pierre, Supernova – The Beat (Lapsus Music)
After the success of “Come Together” (Supernova 2013 Remix), House classic DJ Pierre is back on Lapsus Music. This time the Chicago acid house father join forces with italian house masters and label owners Supernova to present a brand new original old school infused tech house gem. The italian producers have worked out Pierre’s vocal creating an hypnotic vocal loop the rolls all over their unique sound and groove while on the breakdown the remarkable spoken words hit the ground. Tested over the past month with always amazing dancefloor feedbacks this track will find for sure place in many sets.
5. ATFC – The Blues (ATFC Music)
6. DJ Sneak – Moody Warehouse Music Volume 1 (Magnetic Recordings)
‘Moody Warehouse Music’is the brand new series from original House GangsterDJ Sneak, primed to set dance-floors(and fields!)ablaze this Summer season and heralds the 50th release for Sneak’s Magnetic Recordings! Armed and dangerous with4 giant bullets,‘Moody Warehouse Music Vol 1’opens with the steamy Latin house flavoured’Going Get Got’, featuring an infectious“Gonna make you hot%u2026“vocal hook over a feel good filtered groove. Turning up the thermostat, the tribal edged’Gone Gong’pulsates with mad, driving percussive beat science and a haunting tribal chant.‘Jam Hot’is a slice of jackinpower-house, giving a nod toBeats International’s classic ‘Dub Be Good To Me’, with a vocal sample riding over an insane hi-hat driven groove, dirty bass stabs and topped with an eerie breakdown. Closing this this mighty package with a bang,‘Jaqc Da Bass’rides through the gates of dawn fully loaded with an incessant jackin’ groove and takes no prisoners, as Sneak toys with beats and acoustics, shooting the energy levels off the scale!
7. Nightrhymes, Miss Autumn Leaves – Keep It Up (King Street)
Nightrhymes are hands down one of the most influential DJ trios to ever come out of Italy! With a catalogue spanning from 1999 till the present, this dance music trio has graced some of the biggest clubs, stages, and labels out there. Teaming up with vocalist Miss Autumn Leaves, Nightrhymes delivers Keep It Up, a King Street Sounds single for the ages! An incredible synth progression combines with some serious bass and percussion writing to comprise the club mix for Keep It Up. Closing the release, Nightrhymes also includes a deep indie dance Subway Mix that is a MUST for your music collection!
8. Satoshi Tomiie, Matthias Vogt – Love Unlimited EP (Lazy Days Recordings)
Two legends unite on this very special collaboration for Lazy Days. In 2009, Matthias did a project for Satoshi’s label, Saw and kept in touch since. He played for their party in Tokyo and more recently, Satoshi played with him in Frankfurt. It was then that they decided to take the next step into the studio. So finally here it is, the first dialogue of this odd brand new duo.
The result is a 2 track ep, true to their musical heritage as both trained pianist, borrowing moods from the Motor City in a modern, yet timeless way.
This is Matthias Vogt third EP for us, ‘Under The Radar’ and ‘Barrique & Shrulliver’ with Ian Pooley as MVIP. He is a former founding member of Motorcity Soul and also performs and record as Re:Jazz and with his Matthias Vogt trio. All of that while keeping a busy worldwide DJ schedule.
Satoshi Tomiie needs little introduction. A pioneer of the New York sound. Known for his 1989 timeless classic ‘Tears’ with the sadly recently departed Frankie Knuckles and co-owner of Saw Recordings. He also toured as a keyboard player for Ryuichi Sakamoto (of Yellow Magic Orchestra) and has remixed U2, Mariah Carey, Simply Red and David Bowie to name but a few.
9. City Soul Project – CSR003 (City Soul Recordings)
The City Soul Project continue with their releases on their own imprint, this time delivering CSR003, a summery joint consisting of ‘Carnivalé’ and ‘The Jam’.

11. Louis Benedetti, Selan – Getaway (Soulshine)
Soushine presents a brand new instrumental house jam project from Louis Benedetti & Selan recorded live with legendary Bass Master Gene Perez. Those of you who enjoyed “Bottom’s Up” from a few years back will definitely appreciate the musicality captured in these recordings, which took 30 minutes from creation until completion. Three versions are featured on this E.P. the original version, an alternate mix with additional overdubs and a slow tempo mix.
