I ask that you take a moment just for yourself to listen to these tunes as loud as possible because there are a ton of banging tech-house tunes in the chart this week. Included in the chart are some prolific remixes by Maceo Plex, Alan Fitzpatrick, & King Unique. There’s even a fresh re-work of Orbital’s classic “Impact”!
1. “Head’s Above (Maceo Plex Remix)” WhoMadeWho, Ellum
Denmark’s indie-pop trio, WhoMadeWho released their full-length album “Dreams” back in March and included on that that album was “Heads Above”. Five months later, Maceo’s own imprint Ellum has picked up “Head’s Above” for remixing duties provided by some of the best in the biz at the moment. The one we profile though is yet another beautifully epic rework by none other than the Ellum boss himself, Maceo Plex.
2. “I Want You (Alan Fitzpatrick Remix)” Trus’me, Prime Numbers
Trus’me’s “I Want You” gets an absolute stomper of a remix from the techno warrior himself Alan Fitzpatrick!
3. “Dawnbreaker (King Unique Remix)” John Digweed & Nick Muir Vs Ian O’Donovan, Bedrock Records
King Unique takes on the prolific “Dawnbreaker” and beefs it up in all the right places.
4. “Orbytelle” Vagrant, ALiVE Recordings
Producers, Psycatron & Jordan come together as a newly formed duo named Vagrant here on ALiVE Recordings. The Orbytelle EP is the result of this pairing and we feature the title cut which is a quasi-breaks, bass-heavy house tune that properly samples the epic breakdown of Orbital’s “Impact”.
5. “Rouge (Aguila’s Warehouse Mix)” Sharooz, Club Mod
More early 90s vibes on the chart this week as the label Club Mod gets a re-launch with the Astre EP by London based producer Sharooz. The featured track on the EP here is Aguila’s Warehouse Mix of “Rouge”.
6. “Gluk” Gardens Of God , Boso
The Lithuanian producer known as Gardens Of God follows up his prolific release on Ellum from not too long ago with a new EP on Ten Walls’ newly formed Boso imprint.
7. “Medizin Frau” Emanate, Mioli Music
Alliance Part 1 from the American duo known as Emanate is the first in a two part EP series off their own imprint Mioli Music. Featured here off of the EP is “Medizin Frau”, which is a deep tech-house affair that is expertly crafted with hypnotizing bongos & reverberating voices throughout.
8. “The Reality (Enrico Caruso Remix)” Emanuele Rada, Waldliebe Familien
This absolute tech-house banger out now exclusively on Beatport.
9. “909” ALBERTO SANTANA, Undertechnical Recordings
Spanish producer, Alberto Santana turns in a drum-heavy tech-house jam called “909” off the UK label Undertechnical Recordings. Turn this one all the way up!
10. “You Said (GMGN & Dusty Digital Remix)” Nightriders, Kid Recordings
Rounding off the top ten nicely this week is a disco-house tune by the duo Nightriders entitled “You Said”. The featured remix on this package is a charming one by GMGN & Dusty Digital.
