Whats Hot This Week
1. Zepherin Saint & Mr V – Dance Release – The Remixes (Tribe Records)
We were thrilled with the floor-filling club stomper that Dean Zepherin and Mr V produced which became our 50th release on Tribe Records, as well as the remix by the legendary David Morales, but we also knew from playing ‘Dance Release’ in clubs (and beach parties) across Europe, and reading the DJ reports from around the world, that this was a record whose appeal could be enhanced by a couple of new interpretations. Zepherin Saint gave the original a khalegi rhythm and a fabulous Afro-house vibe, David Morales pumped it up with a very percussive, driving version and now we’ve got these!
Based in Essen in Germany’s Ruhr region Manuel Tur has been producing since the early noughties when he was influenced by the likes of Sebastian Leger and Ian Pooley. He’s been releasing ever-more accomplished deep, atmospheric, underground house, while also starting his own label, Smokestack Recordings. His 2009 debut album ‘0201’ (Freerange) avoided the minimalism its name may suggest, featuring filtered French disco house, soulful US-style songs, lush deep house and even broken beats, earning it 10/10 in IDJ. His ‘Dance Release’ remix is a subtle beast, boasting a lovely synth melody that builds slowly and erupts suddenly midway through the track. We love it. His biography on Facebook notes happily that Msashi Roski is a ‘KZN BANG IT BOY’ with intoxicating mixing skills and he doesn’t hold back on this remix, with a fierce ‘handclap’ propelling it along from the get-go. KZN is KwaZulu Natal in South Africa, where Msashi grew up in a township called Kwandengezi and worked his way into the music industry after participating in youth development music projects, then discovering DJing, creating a series of mixtapes, joining the Dustinity Jockerz DJ crew and moving into production. Forget any notions about South African house being all about tribal beats and sweetly soulful balladry, Msashi drops trancey stabs and rumbles that build into an expansive, string-soaked orchestral section followed by breathless beats and those handclaps. It’s a journey, alright, and one we hope you enjoy taking as much as we do.
2. Kevin Kind – Never Forget EP (Beatdown)
3. 86deep – Slave To The Rhythm (Freeze Dried)
Neil Rumney, one half of the original Smokin Beats production team launches his new alias concentrating on all things deep. The Original mix is a slick groove with some lovely chord work while the Paradise Dub is set to destroy the dance with it’s flinging beats and bassline. 86deep has arrived!
4. Darque feat Black Coffee & Kaylow – Ready For The World (DeepForestSA)
Born and raised in the eden of South Africa (Limpopo) Darque delivers one of the most powerful song to heat up the dance floor . Ready for the world is a song taken from his debut album titled ‘Rare Earth Elements’. In this particular song he teams with artist that are the peak of their musical career which are Black Coffee & Kaylow . Black Coffee needs no introduction he is a world icon of house music and leads the troops of house music producers in South Africa , here we see him adding his signature sound which had the world dancing and broke into the world scene with heis massive hit Turn Me On ft. Bucie . Kaylow broke into the scene ironically with Darque when they introduced the now club anthem in South Africa titled Diifference. this is the first single of the album enjoy it .
5. D-Pulse – Keep On Running (Teardrop Music)
‘It was one of those long journeys to somewhere in russia, bit of a weird club but then u meet some friends from St Petersburg and they give you a cd. with one track. Nothing special. But this time it was! On the way back I’ll give it a listen on the plane and I’m instantly blown away by this deephouse funk monster’, so Teardrop Music label head Basti Döhring better known as Lovebirds telling us and there aren’t any more words to add to this from our side. D-Pulse – the live electronic trio from St. Petersburg – have released their music on such established labels as british Tirk, german Gomma, american OM, russian Theomatic and most recently Island Records with their remix for british rock-musican Paul Weller.
‘Keep On Running’ is an outstanding tune in every way – it’s full of analogue synthlines, drumgrooves, live instruments, vocoders and vocal bits. 3 remixes complete this package and should have something for everybody.
6. Ralf GUM feat Jon Pierce & Kafele – Never (incl. Louie Vega Remixes) (GOGO Music)
GOGO Music keeps at it with this stunning and real heartfelt song titled Never, which gave Ralf GUM’s album ‘Never Leaves You’ its name. Featuring Chicagoan crooner Jon Pierce and Kafele on trumpet and background vocals, the song received much praise since the long-player was released. Finally it receives its single release with remixes by no one less than the legendary Louie Vega.
7. J Paul Getto – Handle Your Scandal (Guesthouse)
8. Shur-I-Kan – Right Now EP (Lazy Days Recordings)
It’s with great pleasure that we welcome back Shur-I-Kan with his 3rd outing for Lazy Days. Once again, Tom Szirtes delivers a strong versatile EP. Right Now is the main one here. It’s been a life saver and a great opener in my sets lately with its catchy hook and vocals. It works at any time of the night.! DoggGoan changes the vibe and goes into a more jacking territory. A bit more unusual for Shur-I-Kan’s fans but nevertheless quite effective. We close the EP with I Like It, a collaboration between Tom and Dan D’Nell, which was a highlight on our recent Summer Daze compilation.
9. Vidaloca, Piem – When She Dances EP (Nirvana Recordings)
As Nirvana hits its 25th release, we happily welcome a duo that has been notably impressing the industry lately with their talents. With tracks on great labels such as Witty Tunes, Stereo Productions and Los Banditos, these guys are building up a catalog set to impress the competition.
10. G.Logan – How Did We (Defected)
London-based solo artist G.Logan continues to establish himself as an artist of superior quality. Boasting previous production credits for the likes of Kelis, Jay Sean and Craig David, his latest release on Defected acts as further evidence of his talents. First heard on his self-produced 2012 mixtape ‘Almost Gave Up’, ‘How Did We’ combines deep and atmospheric house vibes with warm vocals testifying to the artist’s soul and R&B background. The synergy is a beautiful and melodic narrative focusing on two people’s coming to terms with their relationship. First up on the remix front is Jovonn’s Mix which is led by a fuzzy bassline and Logan’s now chopped vocals before introducing his emotive chorus topped with freshly introduced piano chords and warm synths. Friend Within’s version utilises heavily swung percussion which complements the stuttered vocals before gradually building into a mammoth drop and what will surely be one of the bassline records of the year. Jovonn makes a second outing on the release with his Deeper Deep Mix, and finally there is the Club Edit of Logan’s original, soul-heavy mix completes the package.
