Last month, local producer Wave Age had a track featured on Perfect Driver’s Swerve Vol. 2 compilation with one of the best song titles ever: “Nintendo 69″. Now, Perfect Driver has a forthcoming “Nintendo 69″ remix pack from 4 of their frequented artists.
First up is a wacky jackin’ remix from Landis LaPace, a producer out of Florida who has been popping up more and more with releases on Psycho Disco, Night Bass, and This Ain’t Bristol. Danish producer Alex Index also tried his hand at it, showing us a mixture of house and breaks with some fun, bouncy synths. Third we have the 219 Boys out of San Francisco with a heavy house remix featuring some traditional bass stabs, but cuts through that with a diving bass synth that is not so traditional. Finally, Grensta (also out of SF) rounds out the remix pack with a booming four-to-the-floor house track.
Make sure you grab all of these when they come out on December 4th!
G-house is a crowded market littered with blasé future house remixes marketed towards blasé top 40 dance parties. But there are a few in the game who aim to be better than that nonsense. Julius Jetson is one of those people. Julius Jetson’s G-house antics are on point.
His newest dancefloor heater, a collaboration with P.Keys titled “Richard,” is a bizarrely delectable tech house groove that dabbles in eccentricity much like the recent releases on Redlight’s Lobster Boy label or Tiga’s “Bugatti.” With a vocal hook that will have ravers shouting in unison with the edit’s four-on-the-floor rhythm, “Richard” is a bass heavy, fun, insane detour into Jetson and P.Keys’ twisted little playground of synths and booty pops.
You can stream “Richard” below and pick it up for free on SoundCloud.
DC based DJ Lisa Frank (a.k.a. Morgan Tepper) is at again with another spectacular mix. Since we did a Spotlight feature on her in April, Morgan was able to go to the iconic Berlin club, Berghain. Morgan had this to say about Berghain:
“It changed the way I viewed techno, and dance music culture as a whole. It helped me gain a deeper love and understanding for something I already felt so passionately about.”
The sounds Morgan heard at Berghain were the inspiration for the “DC HOUSE GROOVES MEET THE LOCALS #21″ mix. The mix gives the listener an aural journey they will not forget, building energy as many good mixes do. DJ Lisa Frank guides the listener through the netherworld of techno effortlessly, imparting her knowledge of the music to them. Solid through the finish line, “DC HOUSE GROOVES MEET THE LOCALS #21″ will not disappoint. Listen here:
The Berlin duo Brame & Hamo got old school with this remix out now on Heist Recordings. With releases on Heist, Splendor & Squalor, and Dirt Crew, these guys have an affinity for that vinyl-crackling, deep sound. Their remix of “Lefty’s Bar” is one for those that are into deep house that has its roots in funk and disco. This is a track that deserves a vinyl release, and that’s just what it got. Grab it on wax along with some other tracks from Detroit Swindle, Nachtbraker, and more right here.
Featuring an eerie vocal sample, beautiful synth strikes, and a grounding bass, DE$IGNATED’s new track on Undr The Radr will please any listener’s ears. The London/Hampshire based duo composed of Nima Bazrcar and Rory Bowyer made “Cyrus The Great” solid all the way through. Expect shivers when you press play on this one:
