As we start to enter winter, the musical climate of house music is getting noticeably deeper & darker but no less beautiful.
Sit down & warm up to my top 10 releases in the world of House Music.
1. "Free" (Maya Jane Coles Remix) - Rudimental ft. Emeli Sande & Nas
The unofficial new queen of house music strikes again. This time remixing Rudimental's new song "Free" and placing Emeli Sande's gorgeous vocal in all the right places.
2. "Rival Dealer" (TALKTOME's Trans Club Mix)- Burial
Relatively unknown artist named TALKTOME does an absolute magical remix of Burial's latest single Available now to download for free through his soundcloud page.
3. "Set It Off" - Tube & Berger Feat. Juliet Sikora
Riding high on the beatport charts, this Essential New Tune caned by Pete Tong is looking to be Tube & Berger's biggest hit yet and deservably so. Originally an electro-funk cult hit by the band Strafe in 1984, the label bosses of Kittball Records turn in a modern take with a pitched down vocal provided by Juliet Sikora.
4. "Inkwell" -Huxley
Just released last week on Will Saul's Aus Music imprint, this track is strictly made for the dancefloor and meant to keep you there
5. "Concor" - Tale Of Us & Vaal
Just released on Monday ahead of a scheduled vinyl release in February means that this track is going to be around for a while. "Concor" is strangely melodic and slightly psychedelic. Certainly one that cannot be pigeon-holed.
6. "Sunset Madness" (Junktion Remix) - Domestic Technology
Relax, unwind, and turn this one up very loud. Junktion's remix takes "Sunset Madness" into very deep & sexy territory. Out now exclusively on Beatport.
7. "Show Me (Dub)" - QuestionmarQ
The latest offering from Ireland's Vision Collective Recordings is another one just as deep as the prior with warm keys and a female voice that will easily hypnotize your mind into house music bliss.
8. "Peep Talk" - Facing Odds
Out next Monday on Facing Odds' "Peep Talk EP, this garage tune has a bassline that won't quit along with a mellow spoken word over the top. If you like your garage deep and hypnotic then look no further.
9. "Omar" - (Thefft Remix) Ill Blu
Just re-released on the compilation en-titled "001-010" on Kerri Chandler's MadTech Records. This is one tough house cut that touches on a little bit of Future Bass & UK Garage.
10. "White Light" - (Jimmy Edgar Remix) My Favorite Robot
Jimmy Edgar outdoes himself once again by remixing My Favorite Robot's "White Light". Newly released and highly essential!!
