Whether you're in the U.S. or in Europe, the weather is definitely getting colder so say goodbye to the bright and Summery tunes and welcome in the creative and melancholy side of electronic music.
1. “Independence” - Agoria [Ellum]
Little did I know that French wonder producer, Agoria was responsible for this beauty when I first heard Maceo Plex spin it on the Amnesia terrace this past September. However, it's out on now on Maceo's imprint Ellum both digitally and on vinyl as well.
2. “Black Hole” - Meta.83 [Pastamusik]
Producer and Liebe*Detail co-founder, Meta.83 dishes out an ominous and minimal acid growler entitled "Black Hole".
3. “Air (Gui Boratto Remix)” - Melon [D.O.C.]
Melon's latest single, "AIR" stands quite nicely on its own, but D.O.C. head-honcho Gui Boratto puts his own spectacular spin on it complete with swirling melodies and progressive rhythms.
4. “Forever (Tanzlife Remix)” - Astro Buhloone [Astropical]
Vinyl-only alert! On Astropical's premiere release called "Forever", Polish producer Tanzlife steps in and provides his signature quirky touch.
5. “Stay True” - Rhythm&Soul [djebali]
Excuse the short 90 second sample but this vinyl only four-track release from Spanish producer Rhythm&Soul is a serious dance floor filler!
6. “Colours” - Mulder [rejected]
In 2012, Dutch producer Mulder absolutely smashed it with "Natural High" and after a thre year hiatus he's back again on the rejected imprint with another one strictly for the floor called "Colours".
7. “Urge” - Man With No Shadow [ALiVE Recordings]
Another Dutchman on the chart with this week yet another dancefloor stormer!
8. “This Is Music” - Denney [VIVa Music]
The title/lead track on this one may be "On & On" but I simply couldn't resist the acid lines on "This Is Music."
9. “Leaf” - Modular Project [OFF Recordings]
OFF Recordings is generally associated with more garage and tech-house but with their latest from the Italian duo Modular Project, they take a step in a new direction with a bit more melody.
10. “Secret Crystal (Siopis Remix)” - 12 Tones [Tenampa Recordings]
At about 10 a.m. in a dark room at the Get Lost party in Miami this past March, I managed to catch a really cool DJ set by this artist known as Siopis and it brings me great pleasure to hear a fantastic production from his as well. This is Tenampa Recordings' 50th release and it is available for purchase now.
