Most of the usual suspects found their way into July's best-of chart but a few other inconspicuous tunes are in here as well. Dive in and listen because you will more than likely find a few surprises.
1. "LONELY TRIBE" - MACEO PLEX [AFTERLIFE]
2. "OUT OF ORBIT (ANASTASIA KRISTENSEN REMIX)" - LOCKED GROOVE [HOTFLUSH RECORDINGS]
In the midst of all the deep and dark techno out there, along comes this ray of sunshine in the form of a tune titled, "Out Of Orbit" which was released earlier this on Locked Groove's LP, Sunset Service. Five months later, it's back on the virtual shelves with this delightful remix courtesy of Danish producer, Anastasia Kristensen.
3. "GOLDEN" - MARK REEVE [TERMINAL M]
The third edition of Terminal M's Bangers compilation features this shimmering banger which should be deserving of its own individual release but it seems to be doing just fine according to its high chart position on Beatport.
4. "WHISPER" - CJ BOLLAND & TOM WAX [FILTH ON ACID]
It's almost frustrating trying to pick the best of the three totally massive tracks from CJ Bolland and Tom Wax on their new EP via Filth On Acid. Track #1 is fairly prolific and #2 is some wicked acid which stands in a league of its own but track #3, "Whisper" is the big one for me. It stands up as a track that I can picture a whole arena jumping in unison to. Total big room business!
5. "POLARIZE" - BART SKILS & WESKA [DRUMCODE]
Just when you think you're listening to yet another carbon copy of hypnotic techno, a blissful breakdown drops in and drenches the tune in euphoria. A moment the night just might need after being pummeled with aggressive techno.
6. "EUPHORIC DREAMS (KINK REMIX)" - KRYSTAL KLEAR [RUNNING BACK]
7. "ELECTRICITY" - CAMELPHAT, RIVA STARR FEAT. MIKEY V. [SNATCH!]
The flip side of "Crystal Clear" is this rugged choon which will get you double fist-pumping in the wee hours of the morning.
8. "PROMISED" - PIG&DAN [TRUESOUL]
Arguably, one of techno's finest duos, Pig&Dan explore the smooth and melodic side of the genre here on "Promised" via Truseoul.
9. "BURY" - SWARM INTELLIGENCE [NEW YORK TRAX IMPORTS]
For the fourth issue on New York Trax Imports, Berlin producer, Swarm Intelligence drops four equally heavy-hitting tunes all led off by this soul-destroyer titled, "Bury."
10. "LOOK WHAT YOUR LOVE HAS DONE TO ME (AMELIE LENS REMIX)" - PERC [PERC TRAX]
11. "UNICORNS AND OTHER BEAUTIFUL THINGS" - THE MODEL [INTEGRITY RECORDS]
For the third and final edition of Integrity Records' We Are Friends EP series, Romanian producer, The Model along with the rising young star, David Jackson got in the driver's seat together and dished out some quality chuggers. Including this driving underground number wonderfully titled, "Unicorns And Other Beautiful Things."
12. "RAVE ON" - A*S*Y*S [SUARA]
13. "SENSES (ALEXANDER TECHNIQUE REMIX)" - ALI GHANAVI, CHAKA & MARTY [FINE MODE]
Strap yourself in for this frenetic interpretation of "Senses" courtesy of NYC's own, Alexander Technique.
14. "DAYS GO BY" - DYSART [INTEC]
With it's earth-pounding, kick-drum, DYSART's "Days Go By" is that perfect foundation tune to let the ravers know that things are about to go down.
15. "ARC (BENJAMIN DAMAGE REMIX)" - JAMES SHINRA [FEEL MY BICEP]
