Traxsource Presents New Music Tuesday (June 10th, 2014)
We kick off the proceedings with the #1 selection from Detroit Swindle & Dirt Crew. A full release taken from their Boxed Out Album including some ope Kerri Chandler Mixes. Definitely deserves it’s place at the top.
Whats Hot This Week
1. Detroit Swindle feat. Mayer Hawthorne – 64 Ways (Dirt Crew Recordings)
Following the great success of Detroit Swindle’s “Boxed Out” Album we present you the second single take out. Their collaboration with Mayer Hawthorne on “64 Ways” already gained massive support from DJ’s and radio stations around the globe in the past weeks and we’re proud to present you this remix pack with none other than Kerri Chandler, Kraak & Smaak and Detroit Swindle’s remix of Detroit Swindle (Inception anyone?).
It’s an honor to have one of the godfathers of House: Kerri Chandler on remix duties. He has been a great supporter of the guys over the past years, often showing off his piano skill over “Guess What” and generally supporting a lot of The Swindlers tunes. He turned the original version of “64 Ways” in a true Kerri “Kaoz” Chandler tune with the use of his trademark key progressions and drums. Don’t miss out on the instrumental if vocals aren’t really your thing.
The second remix is done by the guys themselves and oh boy what a monster tune it is! Stripped down to just a few basics from the original, adding a lovely filtered key loop, they made a deep dance floor burner in true Swindle style: “swing, drop, and everything else”.
As a final to this fine remix pack we asked fellow Dutch house heads Kraak & Smaak to return the favor on the remix tip after Detroit Swindle remixed their track “The future is yours” with Ben Westbeech. They came up with a full on Disco House stomper, with a bass line that will stick with you for the rest of the day and an irresistible disco feel.
Have fun dancing to these great cuts! we for sure can’t sit still :)
2. Dropouts – Dropped Out (Intent Recordings)
Gene Siewing – the St Louis DJ and producer now making serious waves in Berlin – kicks off the first release on his new label in fine style. Intent Recordings looks set to be a buy-on-sight operation, prizing quality over quantity, and on a mission to provide music aimed firmly at the dance-floor, whatever the genre. As such, it’s the perfect outlet for Gene’s own productions – a conduit for the grooving, funk ‘ n’ disco infused house sound that he is fast becoming known for.
Intent 01 introduces us to the mouthwatering new Dropouts project- a collaboration between Gene and man-of-the-moment Max Graef – the young Berliner on everyone’s radar after a string of exceptional releases. The streak continues on the Dropped Out EP – Gene and Max clearly had fun in the studio, riffing on their shared love of deep, grooving house music.
Cool-Track 42 sets out the tone – lush chords, a bouncy bassline, and crisp, rolling drums, offset perfectly with Gene’s occasional vocals and Max’s innate sense of dancefloor know-how. A true deep burner that will stay rooted in the bag for a long time.
The AA track is equally impressive – a mid tempo (108BPM) chugger that highlights Dropouts’ true essence – a love for music with integrity and soul. A sweet vocal sample combines with Detroit-deep chords, firing percussion and a massive bassline. Raw and funky, soulful and uplifting, this is house music with intent.
Early support and play from Ed Davenport (Counterchange), Siriusmo ( Monkeytown) & Jan Driver (Grand Petrol)
3. Dave Mayer – Someday EP (Bobbin Head Music)
We’re stoked to have a solo EP from the always in form Dutch producer Dave Mayer. Best known for his chart topping EP’s and remixes on labels like Strictly Rhythm, Salted, Soulfuric and OM.
Dave has forged 2 club cuts for us, ‘Someday’ and ‘Get Down’ which both offer dope vocal hooks, hypnotic chord riffs, and deep rolling basslines. Underground by nature but accessible to anyone, these tracks are ready to get the dance floor moving.
Rounding out the EP, label boss Husky offers up a slice of disco infused boogie to make this one tasty and diverse release.
4. The Company – Superstar (Reel People Music)

5. Bobby Blanco, Miki Moto – 3am Supernova 10 Years Later Mix (Lapsus Music)
We are really proud to release the remix of one of our fav House Anthem in the form of “3am”.
