The first weekend of July is here and what better way to kick of mid Summer with ten absolutely brand new, explosive techno tracks from the likes of Tale Of Us, Jimmy Edgar, and of course the electronic music god we often refer to as Sasha!
1. 'PONTIAC (CLUB MIX)' - SASHA [LAST NIGHT ON EARTH]
It's been over three months since I first heard the god of electronic music himself spin his own dance floor edit of 'Pontiac' in the wee hours of the morning at the fabled Get Lost party in Miami and it was well worth the wait.
2. 'DUCATI' - STEVE MULDER VS. FULL FUNKTION [1605 MUSIC THERAPY]
This big room techno stormer from Steve Mulder & co. features an unbelievably tight groove along with a devastating kick drum that is bound to destroy any dance floor.
3. 'RUNNING (TALE OF US REMIX)' - MODERAT [FREE DOWNLOAD]
Head over to the Facebook page of either Moderat or Tale Of Us in order to grab an exclusive free download of this exquisite re-rub.
4. 'LONDON RAVE' - CLIO & YVAN GENKINS [TRUESOUL]
Adam Beyer's Truesoul imprint continues its domination in the tech house sector of electronic music as Clio & Yvan Genkins team up for an unbelievably tight three track E.P.
5. 'QUINTANA ROO' - DARIN EPSILON [PERSPECTIVES DIGITAL]
Perspectives label boss, Darin Epsilon just unleashed his latest E.P. entitled Thousand Winds and it boasts four highly impressive productions that all stand firmly own their own but the final ethereal tune, 'Quintana Roo' is the one that gets my vote.
6. 'IPHONE' - JIMMY EDGAR [ULTRAMAJIC]
Detroit producer, Jimmy Edgar has come to notoriety with his slick yet jacking booty house productions and his latest track of the jacking variety simply called 'iPhone' may just be his biggest one to date. Stay tuned.
7. 'DISTANCE' - RAFAEL CERATO & THE WHITE SHADOW [CHAPTER 24 RECORDS]
British producer, Rafael Cerato & French producer, The White Shadow team up for a hypnotic, forward-thinking journey called 'Distance'
8. 'PULSAR' - JUHEUN [OCTOPUS BLACK LABEL]
Phoenix based techno producer, Juheun absolutely slays his premiere release on Octopus with four solid stompers. Have a sliver of a listen to my personal favorite of the four, 'Pulsar.'
9. 'ODYSSEY (PIG&DAN REMIX)' - BORIS [TRANSMIT RECORDINGS]
Pig&Dan are on pace to take honors for techno producers of the year if they keep up their domination within the techno universe.
10. 'CONVERGENCE' - STEFAN WEISE [WOLF TRAP]
Long gone are the days when 130 plus BPM was the norm in techno but every now and then a techno wind of fresh air consumes me. Exhibit A: This latest frenetic, mind-bending track from American based producer, Stefan Weise!
