Dirtybird player Justin Jay recently remixed a track by Disciples that is forthcoming on Pete Tong’s Full Frequency Range Recordings. Justin is often known for creating booty-shaking beats, but this time he went a bit deeper. The track has a bit of an ominous feel, somewhat resemblant of a Maceo Plex production. He used a huge sounding synth bass that has you swimming in sound along with a catchy melody that sounds like some sort of plucked string instrument. This one is due out on the 22nd of February so be sure to pick it up then!
Lxury‘s latest EP just dropped on Greco Roman, and to celebrate, he’s dropped the video for what’s arguably the most intriguing track on the record. Enlisting Deptford Goth on vocals, “Square 1″ is as trippy and caffeinated as the video, working light synth stabs over a high energy breakbeat. It fits just as well alongside future bass sounds as it does with his previous UK dance leanings, and gets stuck in your head almost immediately.
Jamie Prado‘s talent is something to behold. Having only been on the scene for a short while, Prado leaves an indelible mark through his pop-infused, lounge ready brand of house music. This is made even clearer in his newest EP, ‘Songs to Dream In,’ which came out today via indie label Vibewithit.
Featuring 5 all-star tracks including Hold You, which we wrote about in October, the EP brilliantly breathes life into a jam-packed indie dance and house marketplace. Following the opening track is Don’t Wanna Wait, an old school, groovy, funky organ ridden number with a bassline that bops like a kid without Adderall. The next song, the deeper Work It Out, is a flashy, 90′s house-inspired piece that is smooth, suave, and ready for the “skinny tie/club” types. After Work It Out is the track which inspired the title of the EP. Prado’s A Song to Dream In is without a doubt the lightest track in this release showcasing a flirty conga groove combined with arpeggiated synth lines that scream Ibiza beach party. The finale, Extrasoular, is reminiscent of some of the lesser known tracks on Disclosure’s debut ‘Settle’: piano stabs matched with tight, percussive kicks and hi-hats on a consistent level that is on trend and exhilarating.
On the whole, Jamie Prado’s steady stream of persistently high quality content has been a blessing and his latest EP is no exception. Balanced, fun, and concise, ‘Songs to Dream In’ is admirably entertaining and further proof that post-EDM house is vibrant and stronger than ever.

Erik Morillo and Harry Romero have teamed up for a new EP titled “Devotion” featuring vocals from the talented Shawnee Taylor – just released on Subliminal and Ultra. The title track is a fun electro club rocker from the duo, but the standout cut on the EP comes in the form of Amine Edge and DANCE’s remix.
The traditional G House producers put their own spin on the soulful vocals from the original, creating a remix that takes us back to the basics. Crisp clean techy drums combined with a simple, but tough bassline. Add in the haunting pads that gleam in the background, drawn out transitions, and well placed vocals and they’ve given us a real smasher.
Also worth checking out are the Oliver Dollar and Simon Fields’ remixes included on the EP. Happy listening…
