This week I present you with another chart of music all across the house music spectrum. From the sun-kissed, funky vibes of Tippy Toes' "Heaven" to Dino Lenny's epic adventure "This Is Not The End 2", there really is something for everyone in here. Happy Valentine's Day my house music lovers!
1. “Heaven” Tippy Toes, Let's Play House
Not only is the Brooklyn duo Tippy Toes' "Heaven" my top tune of the week, it's also the feel-good tune of the year thus far! "Heaven" is taken from the forthcoming EP Love Reminder which is due out this coming Monday both digitally and on vinyl.
2. “This Is Not The End Part 2” Dino Lenny, Fine Human Records
Back in August of last year the Spanish imprint Suara unleashed what was arguably the top electronic music compilation of the Summer, Kitties Wanna Dance 4 and on there appeared the first edition of Dino Lenny's monster of a tune "This Is Not The End". Fast-forward to just this past Monday and he's back with part two of this opus on his own label, Fine Human Records. For this second edition the kick-drum was lightened up just a bit, however the tune is just as driving and an arp of epic proportions has given this second part a life of it's own. Crank this one up!
3. “Two 0 One” John Tejada, Kompakt
John Tejada is a Los Angeles techno stalwart who has been mastering his own brand of melodic Techno & Tech-House for the past 15 years and on February 2nd, he released his latest full length album via Kompakt. This spine-tingling beauty of an album has been a well-received one and the lead cut on the LP Two 0 One is featured here in my top ten of the week.
4. “Chicago” Apres, Annie Mac Presents
Rarely do I get to brag about a free download but this week's exception comes from a young new producer named Apres who's tune "Chicago" has been getting heavy play from Annie Mac as of late.
5. “Happy Valley” Dubspeeka & Visionz, Dext Recordings
The Floorshow EP from Dubspeeka & Visionz includes this punchy number entitled "Happy Valley" and it's out now exclusively for sale through Beatport.
6. “Bear Witness” Steve Huerta, Anjunadeep
Anjunadeep's latest offering comes from LA-born, Berlin-based producer Steve Huerta.
7. “Rain Over The Sea (Ben Gomori's Aquatic House Remix)” Darbinyan, Blossom Kollektiv
Darbinyan's Saint Elmo's Fire EP features this dreamy remix of "Rain Over The Sea" by Ben Gomori.
8. “The Weapon” Jacob B, Kase Kool
This hoover-heavy belter entitled "The Weapon" off of The Breslau Cuts EP is out now exclusively on vinyl for two weeks until it sees a digital release.
9. “State Of Mind” Nils Penner, Freerange Records
Nils Penner has a certain knack for drawing plenty of emotion into house music and he's done an ace of a job in doing so here with "State Of Mind" on Freerange Records.
10. “The Basement” Kub, On A Mission Records
The second ever release from the The Groove Brothers' vinyl-only imprint On A Mission Records features this old school Chicago style house jam entitled "The Basement" by Kub.
