It's getting colder but the music is only getting hotter as this week sees a solid top 10 that spreads across the different realms of house music. Scuba's Hotflush imprint gets epic with a new one from Locked Groove and Super Flu go classical by collaborating with their local philharmonic. Plus, there's a couple of re-issues from electronic music stars, Solomun & Maya Jane Coles. Not to mention, there is a vinyl exclusive in here as well from rising star, John Dimas.
1. “West Coast (Solomun Remix)” Lana Del Rey, 2DIY4
Solomun’s remix of Lana Del Rey’s “West Coast” was first released back in July but only to a European audience. Now Diynamic’s sublabel 2DIY4 has made Solomun’s fantastic revision available to the rest of the world via Beatport.
2. “Enigma” Locked Groove, Hotflush
Belgian producer Locked Groove returns to Hotflush for his first release on the label since early 2013 with a dark and ominous tune that is fittingly titled “Enigma”.
