On the heels of EDC, Glastonbury, or even Electric Forest I thought I would present you all with tunes that I think could make you nostalgic for those great memories you created and if not, just relax and enjoy what house music has to offer at the moment. At the top of the chart I present you an Ame remix of what is certainly another contender for the song of the summer and rounding out the chart is Rufus Du Sol’s debut release here in the US!
1. “Turn Around (Ame Remix)” Sailor & I, Life and Death
Just when you thought every single epic masterpiece of the summer had been released, Tale Of Us' Life and Death imprint let loose a great little track by the name of "Turn Around". To complement this already great track, Ame turns up and extends it to an amazing eight minutes of *hands in the air* joy that is sorely missed in a world of very minimal underground house music.
2. “Hoodlum” Traumer, Desolat
Next up this week we dig into a vinyl-only release that leads of with "Hoodlum" which was hammered by Loco Dice at his killer set at EDC Vegas!
3. “51 Degrees Nord" Eelke Kleijn, Suara
Lately it has been nearly impossible to get away from charting a Suara release every week and of course this week is no exception as Eelke Kleijn provides us with a peak time tech house choon!
4. “Lovers' Eyes (Mohe Pi Ki Najariya) (Instrumental)” Damian Lazarus & The Ancient Moons, Crosstown Rebels
When I first heard this played at Damian Lazarus' Day Zero party at BPM back in January, I knew that he was onto something special and spiritual as he has held onto it until now by letting it build the buzz it deserves.
5. “Nans et Moots (Oliver Schories Remix)” Jules & Moss, Kittball
The Nans et Moots EP by Jules & Moss is out today exclusively on Beatport and we recommend heading straight for the mind-bending remix by Oliver Schories. It is utterly hypnotic and slightly melodic in the best way!
6. “China Tree” Stimming feat Piper Davis, Pampa Records
Another mind-bending track on our chart this week and this one comes from none other than Martin Stimming who goes simply by Stimming. Piper Davis provides an eerily haunting vocal over an already equally haunting track.
7. “Flight” Pazul, Cat For Lunch
One of our favorite record labels out of Berlin, “Cat For Lunch” present us with their 15th release. This time Pazul steps in and provides a smooth tech-house EP that leads off with an eclectic house tune by the name of “Flight”.
8. "Disco Ball Drama" Downtown Party Network, Futureboogie
Bristol based Futureboogie crank out a proper disco pumper courtesy of Lithuanian duo Downtown Party Network. Expect to see this on record shelves only as this will be coming out on July 7th, exclusively on vinyl.
9. “Groove On” Secondcity, DFTD
The Defected camp mark another notch on their belt by signing on London based Secondcity to execute a proper three course tech house EP that leads off with the fiercely hypnotic “Groove On”. Turn this one all the way up!
10. “Sundream" RUFUS, Columbia
The Australian band Rufus, who sometimes go by the name of Rufus Du Sol see their debut single “Sundream” see the light of day here in the U.S. ahead of their album release titled “Atlas” which is expected to be out soon. Enjoy this sun-drenched beauty of a song accompanied by a great little music video.
