Please excuse the month-long absence of Magnetic Magazine's house music chart, but its author (yours truly) took a much needed pilgrimage over to the White Isle in order to help close some very necessary events. However, I'm back now and thrilled to present you with yet another exciting week of brand-spanking-new house music.
1. "GOT DUB" - KEVIN OVER [NOFITSTATE]
German producer Kevin Over has one of the hottest hands in the tech house genre at the moment, and it's no wonder why given the absolute class and quality of his latest EP which features this fittingly titled tune, "Got Dub."
2. "LOST IN THE STORM" - RALPH LAWSON [2020 VISION]
After putting out a vinyl-only release over a year ago and getting rinsed by everyone from the likes of Seth Troxler, DJ Harvey, and Jamie Jones, the dub-heavy bomb "Lost In The Storm" finally gets a proper digital release on Lawson's own long-running 2020 Vision imprint!
3. "PLAYING THE GAME" - DACHSHUND [UPON.YOU RECORDS]
On Dachshund's newest EP, Playing The Game, he strays away from modern minimalism and draws upon '90's inspiration to execute a synth/sample-heavy four-tracker. This title track is guaranteed to rouse the crowd!
4. "SUGAR SUGAR" - DETROIT SWINDLE [HEIST RECORDINGS]
5. "BOUNCE IT" - K.A.M.A. [PISTON RECORDINGS]
Italian producer K.A.M.A.'s "Bounce It" is what tech house should sound like. It packs enough groove to make you dance and enough punch to make you fist pump. Crank this one up!
6. "MAMAN" - LEWIS BOARDMAN [PLAY IT DOWN]
Liverpool house music stalwart Lewis Boardman makes a long-awaited return to Jesse Rose's Play It Down imprint with stellar dance floor cuts - including this particular one curiously titled "Maman."
7. "REFLECTION (HYENAH REMIX)" - YOUANDME & THE ANALOG ROLAND ORCHESTRA FEAT. BLACK SODA [POKER FLAT RECORDINGS]
The elusive and mysterious producer known as Hyenah pushes youANDme's "Reflection" deep into a xylophone wonderland that is sure to take any party to the next level.
8. "GOLIATH" - SÉBASTIEN LÉGER [EINMUSIKA RECORDINGS]
Sébastien Léger's "Goliath" may fall on the more progressive side of house music, but it's wondrous, melodic beauty simply cannot be ignored and must be recognized.
9. "DANCEMOTIVE" - UNER [CULPRIT]
One of my favorite Spanish producers, UNER, makes a splashing debut on L.A.-based record label, Culprit. The EP is titled From The Other Side and the lead track featured here on the chart is the hypnotically deep "Dancemotive."
10. "ROLLIN HARD (HECTOR COUTO REMIX)" - ARADO [ROUSH LABEL]
Hector Couto follows up his fellow #9 compatriot with something that's a bit more straightforward - yet still deep in its own right.
