NYC’s Mister Saturday Night is at it again, this time with an EP from the UK’s Nebraska. The “Look What You’ve Done To Me” EP consists of three tracks, all of which provide a different vibe. The title track is a super slow-house groover, with big chords that fill up the track and a tantalizing vocal sample. The other two tracks are a bit faster and deeper at the same time.
Berlin’s Adam Port recently came out with a remix of Jimpster’s “Eel Pie Island,” turning it into a late-night chiller. This slow-burning track is filled with great soundscapes and textures, and made good use of an interesting spoken-word vocal sample. Also, be sure to check out the other remix on the B-side of this release by Hyenah.
Chicago’s Maria Goetz teamed up with North Carolina based artist Virulent for their March release of “A Final Solitaire” on DEAD CERT. Records. “A Final Solitaire” is a techno heater with plenty of distortion and automated effects. Play “A Final Solitaire” here:
Ruede Hagelstein’s remix of Marc Romboy’s “Counting Comets” is an uplifting cosmic tech house jam. “Counting Comets (Ruede Hagelstein Remix)” features a palpable reverberated percussive element, a synthesized ostinato bass line, and enchanting pads that come straight from the heavens. Hagelstein is a Berlin based artist who has held a residency at Watergate since 2006.
Berlin based Keinemusik artist Rampa uploaded the eccentric and beautifully crafted “Human” to his Soundcloud a month ago. “Human” revolves around complex percussive rhythms and a bizarre vocal sample. Rampa’s “Human” is easily one of the more compositionally innovative dance music tracks I’ve heard this year. Listen to and download “Human” for free:
