Disco is a guilty pleasure of many and the resurgence of the genre seems to be making its way back into modern sounds. Sean Glass takes a trip back to a time full of afros and lava lamps when crafting his inaugural track – a remix of Robert Delong’s “Long Way Back.” His disco influence isn’t as saturated as other producers, but he tastefully and intricately integrates it into a deep house backbone to really flaunt his past experience in the musical landscape. See for yourself with the stream above! Watch out for the remix to be released on Glassnote Records on March 31st.

Collectives are all the rage right now. Moving Castle has stood out among the rest as this group of Internet kids seem to have some serious creativity in the tank. Founding member AOBeats, Manila Killa, and Robokid started this project as a way to push each other to become better producers and they have now pulled in over 15 artists to build what Moving Castle is today. Their latest compilation, Volume 004, really steps up their love for bass-ridden genres and playful accents with the collective bringing in a couple newcomers to feature their tracks. One newcomer, Chet Porter, really shined with his track “Aluko River” that seems to take on a fantastical nature and really transport listeners into a dream-like world. Moving Castle Volume 004 is up for free download as usual so grab your copy now!

LA-based Justin Jay has just released his 3 track EP on Pets Recordings, Momentum, and the young producer really pulled out all the stops to show us that he can produce every kind of deep. Long-time fans of the rising artist will be ecstatic to hear “How I Knew” for its intricate funk and bass elements that are also present in “Momentum.” With the title track, Justin Jay and Kill Frenzy channel their inner dark sides to spawn a creation that is meant for those warehouse parties where you don’t know what time it is that resonates closely to their previous collaboration. Finally, “You Give Me Butterflies” makes us never want to grow up because Justin Jay uses his airy synths and wistful FXs to make us truly feel those butterflies inside. With Momentum being his fourth EP, you can bet that Justin Jay has just begun his reign of rhythm and will continue on to reach for the stars in the coming future. Grab the EP here and enjoy!

One of France’s finest producers, Tchami, has returned with the first release off his highly anticipated second EP, After Life. The title track of the EP, “After Life”, has an eerie introduction that haunts us with its echoing vocals and epic synth buildup before leading us to a classic Tchami drop, and who doesn’t love those dirty Tchami beats?
Accompanying the release of the original was the music video for “After Life,” which has a much different vibe from his last video for “Promesses.” The video takes a dark approach, putting you in the shoes of a man struggling with the concepts of life, death, and what is to come after. It’s something that we have all thought about at one point or another, which is why we’re really digging this vibe from the illustrious Frenchman. Our first taste of what the After Life EP will sound like is oh-so-sweet and we’re craving more. Listen to the track above and be sure to watch the music video after the jump. Enjoy!

Dare we say this is the best ‘Spring Break Mix’ yet?
