Listen. Can you feel it? It's getting closer. The music is getting hotter, the parties are getting bigger, and Summer is just on the horizon. So in honor of the festivities looming, I've picked out ten of the newest, biggest, and baddest four on the floor choons that are guaranteed to get you through these long monotonous work weeks that sit between our end of the week fiestas.
1. 'QUEEN OF EUROPE (SOLOMUN REMIX)' - OST & KJEX FEAT ANNE-LIESE FROKEDAL [DIYNAMIC]
Ost & Kjex have unleashed a remix EP from their own LP, Freedom Wig which features some scorching remixes from Keinemusik's Rampa, Christian Loffler, Johannes Brecht, and of course as featured here, Diynamic's own head honcho Solomun.
2. 'GET IT ON' - HECTOR COUTO [20/20 VISION]
I may be getting a little nostalgic here. Not just for 80's inspired house music as expertly produced here by Hector Couto but also for when Marco Carola hammered it just a couple weeks back inside Coachella's dance music haven, The Yuma Tent.
3. 'BADDIE' - PATRICK TOPPING [REPOPULATE MARS]
Patrick Topping returns to form with yet another wonky, dance-floor filler.
4. 'FANTASMA' - TENSNAKE [TRUE ROMANCE]
I don't always go for the b-sides but when I do, the tune is usually rather outstanding and Tensnake's b-side to his newest single 'Desire' is no exception. The track curiously called 'Fantasma' is a steady ride through a little bit of disco, a little bit of acid, and a whole lot of euphoria.
5. 'CRY WOLF' - FELKON [SOULFOOLED]
While everyone is desperately trying to manufacture the newest contemporary brand of electronic music, Alex Niggemann and his Soulfooled camp, including German producer Felkon, are effortlessly churning out future-thinking music that stands above the rest.
6. 'REWIND' - BONTAN [MADTECH]
UK Northerner, Bontan has put together a serious dancefloor weapon on Kerri Chandler's MadTech imprint.
7. 'SEEING THINGS' - m.O.N.R.O.E. [GET PHYSICAL MUSIC]
Hot on the heels of a Miami mix album for Get Physical, Miami's own Jordan Postrel aka m.O.N.RO.E is turning heads once again with yet another forward thinking tune designed not only for the floor but the mind as well.
8. 'BAILET (ANTWON FAULKNER REMIX)' - GEORGE PRIVATTI, GUILLE PLACENCIA, & MARIO BIANI [KMS RECORDS]
Detroit's Antwon Faulkner remixes 'Bailet' and the result is a devastatingly high energy re-rub that is guaranteed to set the stage for the peak of the night.
9. 'EARLY BIRD' - MONOSOUL [TOOMAN RECORDS]
This deep groover by Monosoul features on the third ever release from Berlin's own vinyl-only imprint Tooman Records
10. 'AVIATE' - YOTTO [ANJUNADEEP]
Yotto's "Aviate" was recently crowned as the essential new tune on BBC Radio 1 and it's now exclusively on Anjunadeep.
