Benson’s latest for Sweat It Out is an addicting cut of pop fueled, bass heavy house, centering around the addicting vocals of Lex Famous. It holds your attention the whole way through, whether it’s being wrapped up in the warm synths and irresistible voice of Famous or being called to the get down by the instantly danceable groove that kicks in as soon as the beat drops. This is one of our favorite tracks from the Australian imprint yet, and it comes packaged with some equally choice remixes from the likes of Yolanda Be Cool, Dom Dolla, and Jad and the Ladyboy. Take a listen below:
Budapest’s very own Monkeyneck is taking a turn at bringing a new level to the house game, and this remix of Chet Faker is spot on. It’s vivid lyrics are spotlighted by a synthed-out, slowed down, deep dance track that makes you melt away. It’s simple cuts and subtle yet generous bass hits you for a nice summer cool down track especially as we head into fall. Take a listen!
Australia is cranking out new talent non stop! The latest export is beatmaker, Kilter, who’s Shades EP was released recently on etcetc. The stand out track “When You Walked In” is a highly caffeinated cut of driving electronica built around tropical stabs and playful synths, interrupted by the occasional vocal snippet, that makes for one of the more enjoyable songs of the summer. Take a listen below and keep an eye out for Kilter who’s been crushing it on the remix front as well:
OK…so the original for this song is likely one of my favorite tracks of 2014, and I’m really reluctant to say this remix is better BUT it does one helluva job giving it a totally different, and equally awesome, vibe! Sydney-native ADAPT OR DIE is a bit of an underground name but if they continue to produce at this level, I’m sure it won’t be long before they create a name for themselves. This tracks a hard dance sound that reeks of late night dancefests and dirty disco house. Take a listen to this filtered, buttshakin monster of a remix!
Augustine V is next up as our favorite new anonymous producer of the moment. Having no information available outside of his music, he managed to sell us pretty instantly. Both tracks up on his Soundcloud are tough deep house cuts with catchy vocal lines, rubbery bass lines and driving beats. “Every Minute Every Hour” has a great late night beach side feel to it, wrapping the bouncy low end in lush synth pads and delayed leads, and “Rule The World” takes a spacier approach, leading off a vocoder hook and a laid back groove.
