For 2016, Junior Sanchez’s “Brobot Records” imprint has already churned out hits from artists including Matthew Warren, Blaqwell and Bäcksvart & Simon Kiisk. Now, on the 24th of June, Two One Two, an all-new collaboration from the minds of MING, Blaqwell, and Misha D! join the infamous #BrobotArmy by conjuring a 2-track EP consisting of ‘Make It’ and ‘DOS’.
The musical focus is on fun, gritty, and dirty tech house with a future forward flare. This is immediately evident on “DOS”, track one on the groups double A-sided debut. Bass and kick combine to form a serious groove. Those elements are joined by an attack of futuristic tech synth lines, hits and vocal stabs crafted to make the track a creative and fresh entry in the genre.
“Make It” Brings the same jacking dancefloor power to the table with its driving kick and bassline combo, but has a more steady and hypnotic feel. Sweeping pads, keys, and vocal elements give the track a deeper haunting tone. Definitely on heavy rotation with our FNT team!

Taking one from the playbook of artists the likes of Robin Schulz and Lost Frequencies, Toito’s “Fool” is catchy and easy listening at its finest.

I want to live in Kav’s world, anytime I hear a sound of his, it’s all sunshine and daisies, or if it’s a shot or a clip of him, he always has a smile on his face, we should all take note. His latest “In My Arms” a collaboration with Dutch duo Palm Trees, has retro feel good written all over it, and gives room for live instrumentation, cue saxophone. It’s about 90 Degrees where I’m at, and I know there’s a heat wave hitting the planet, so get your shades on, throw a bikini on, and imagine yourself in a Coca Cola commercial, this is what I hear from this ditty. Happy tuesday, this is a must listen!

LA based Bricks is starting fresh.”Get Down” is his first release, showcasing a unique balance of electronic music elements that are new as well as familiar aesthetics layered. My favorite part of the experience is the light horn melody. Before you know it, the Diplo-style vocal sample takes over and the drop hits.
The style is different, kind of like a chill bass house with trap-like elements, hard to pinpoint exactly, but a unique feeling is delivered.
Rumor has it Bricks has many more tracks under his belt and will be release some soon. Keep your eye out for him as we get deeper in 2016.

There’s no denying that Justin Jay is killing it. He’s already unveiled the first three parts of his debut album, and now, we’ve got a glimpse of the fourth courtesy of Lee Foss’ Repopulate Mars label. “Climbing Trees” has been making the rounds on the Internet for a while now, ever since Justin debuted it in his live sets on his “Fantastic Voyage” tour – and for good reason. The record is undeniably huge, as it expertly toes the line between dark, brooding warehouse heater and lighthearted summer jam. Josh Taylor’s airy vocals offer a noticeable counterpart to Benny Bridges’ heavy guitar licks and Justin’s expertly crafted basslines.

Mosimann caught me off guard when I stumbled upon his lyric video for “The Gifted One”. He comes from France and has built his career within the city and in surrounding areas. One element I found particularly exciting was the sheer amount Mosimann has accomplished in a short amount of time. He has been a judge on The Voice Belgium, completely won the French show Star Academy, and has soared into the DJMag Top 100 in 2016. That’s alot.
It’s clear Mosimann’s promotion is as diverse as his background. His SoundCloud focuses on both the banger and chill side of electronic music.
His latest work is most definitely far from heavy. “The Gifted One”, is an innovative twist on the chill house you are hearing. It’s less deep house / tech house influenced, which is sort of the norm in America at the moment, and focuses on a poppier vibe, most so when the drop comes.
Mosimann’s “The Gifted One” is well-produced and easy to enjoy multiple times over, click the YouTube link above to learn more about this artist.
