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!
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.

Indie dance group and Future Classic favorites, Panama, are gearing up for their European tour. Lucky for us that means their giving us a free download of their new track “Stay Forever.” The song is a lush synth pop take reminiscent of groups like M83 and Future Cop. Lead singer, Jarrah McCleary’s sleepy vocals are set against a warm backdrop of glistening synths and retro sounds, all played over a driving 80s tinged beat.

A little behind on this house gem, but Vic Mensa brings the heat with this superb mix of fluid poetry with deep beats. Its combination of enlightened lyrics overtop a rapid and absorbing dance beat brings out the very best in electronic vibes. This flow is so amazing, and its ability to resonate on this heavy bassline makes you want to drop everything and dance. Enjoy this one.
