Now that the holidays and BPM are over, the entire House music industry is back to work and ready to unleash all the amazing unreleased tunes it has to offer, including tracks from some of the best in the biz like Low Steppa's Simma Black, Sante's Avotre, AFFKT's Sincopat, and of course, my top tune of the week on Adam Beyer's Tech-House imprint, Truesoul!
1. 'Cold Summer' - Paride Saraceni [Truesoul]
London-based producer Paride Saraceni first caught my attention in 2014 with his underground goody, "Dissolute" which Maya Jane Coles smashed to bits in many of her sets. Now two years later, he's drawn my attention yet again with another stormer for the dancefloor entitled, "Cold Summer" which is out now on his Burning EP via Adam Beyer's Truesoul imprint. This is deep & hard tech house at its finest.
2. 'Mike The Swamp' - Russ Yallop & wAFF [Avotre]
Banger alert!!! Hot Creations mainstays Russ Yallop & wAFF team up for an uber-funky tech house jam mysteriously entitled "Mike The Swamp" which is out now on Sante's imprint Avotre.
3. 'Fast Close' - Lower & OSp [Hopeless Label]
This lovely one called "Fast Close" on the Hopeless Label is a radiant yet ominous tune that is sure to keep the body moving.
4. 'On The Estate' - Low Steppa [Simma Black]
Will Bailey aka Low Steppa is back again with his latest EP, Tales From The Loft and it features this no-nonsense house stomper entitled "On The Estate."
5. 'Calabrena' - NTFO [20/20 Editions]
Ralph Lawson's long-running house music imprint, 20:20 Vision starts an offshoot called 20/20 Editions and the premiere edition called the Represent EP comes from the Romanian duo known as NTFO.
6. 'Jas' - Tim Deluxe [Strictly Rhythm]
Tim Deluxe's "JAS" may be the lead track from his critically acclaimed full-length, The Radicle which was released just a few months ago but here it gets a full remix package featuring Eli Escobar and a few other versions of it from Tim himself.
7. 'Control One' - Frag Maddin [Definition:Music]
Frag Maddin's Dark Hush EP is brimming with four high-quality tunes that are all uniquely outstanding in their own way but "Control One" is the tune that does it for me thanks to some light disco undertones that are complimented by a semi-fuzzy bassline.
8. 'Urbanica' - Audio Junkies [Sincopat]
The Valencia-based Sincopat imprint pushes the boundaries yet again with their latest forward thinking release from the Tel Aviv duo known as Audio Junkies.
9. 'Big Discs' - Eats Everything [Pets Recordings]
Eats Everything's newest playfully titled tune, "Big Discs" is also his debut release on Catz 'N Dogz' imprint, Pets Recordings.
10. 'Midnight' - Lane 8 [Suara]
Lane 8 continues to produce prolific dance music that refuses to adhere to any genre's rules and his debut on Suara entitled "Midnight" is obviously no exception.
