Now that the Summer months are long gone, House Music gets a chance to spread its wings by focusing on the deeper and more eclectic side of the genre. Kiasmos goes prolific as usual, Seth Troxler gets deep and dark, and a brand new, relatively unknown Polish duo produce a balearic one that will make you reminisce about 1989's "Sueno Latino."
1. "VAPOUR TRAILS (KIASMOS REMIX)" - SASHA [LATE NIGHT TALES]
Sasha's brilliant, ambient full length "Scene Delete" was heavily influenced by the Icelandic duo Kiasmos, so it's only fitting that the pair assist on the first edition of the album's remixes.
2. "MIST" - KIDNAP KID [BIRDS THAT FLY]
Very few artists within the the confines of house and techno are able to really establish a sound of their own but it appears that Birds That Fly label boss Kidnap Kid is doing just that. Take, for example, his latest release, The Brokenhearted EP which features this b-side, "Mist." An emotive yet up-front house track that triggers strong feelings of melancholy in an ostensibly progressive manner.
3. "THE GREAT AMAEL (MOFFA X TROXLER LSOS LOVE_GOD REMIX)" - LUCIANO [CADENZA MUSIC]
Luciano's "The Great Amael" is indeed a deep cut from the Cadenza imprint and it's one that's worth being unearthed for a couple of fresh remixes - including this deep and dark tribal beast from the production partnership consisting of Phil Moffa and the one and only Seth Troxler!
4. "MOVE ONE" - RAMON TAPIA [TOOLROOM TRAX]
Historically speaking, winter dance anthems haven't been the status quo but Ramon Tapia appears to be changing that - first with last year's ultra-massive "Yellow Submarine" and possibly again with this chunky dance floor monster he's calling "Move One."
5. "INTENTIONS" - TACHES [DESERT HEARTS RECORDS]
Head over to Desert Hearts' SoundCloud page to grab a free download of TÂCHES' premiere release on the label, Notes On Grains, which features this ethereal chugger simply called, "Intentions."
6. "NOIR" - LEVEL GROOVE [TIME HAS CHANGED]
The producer known as Level Groove nearly sets his drum kit on fire with "Noir" on French house music label Time Has Changed.
7. "ANZAHL 222 (UNDERQUOTE REMIX)" - BARBADOS [EXOTIC REFRESHMENT LTD]
Argentinian duo Underquote provide an extremely euphoric rendition of Barbados' "Anzahl 222."
8. "ORBITAL" - MOONWALK [DIYNAMIC MUSIC]
9. "ENVOLVER (GAB RHOME REMIX)" - DOUBTINGTHOMAS [AKBAL MUSIC]
The Akbal Music imprint based out of Tulum sees a release from the producer known as Doubtingthomas and it features a very earthy remix from Gab Rhome that includes audio samples of rain and thunder cleverly mixed with various sorts of percussion.
10. "SAX TRACK" - EARTH TRAX x NEWBORN JR. [RHYTHM SECTION INTERNATIONAL]
Two Polish producers come together for an outstandingly eclectic two-tracker that features the gorgeously euphoric "Sax Track."
