It’s time to get a little weird. I’m going to introduce you to a man who really changed the game for me in 2013 as I subscribed to a little bit of Group Therapy with Above & Beyond at ABGT50. Guy Judah (Guy J) brings us a rendition of the finest in techno and tribal with his latest mix. Now if you’re hesitant to expand your musical horizons into a zone unknown, I suggest downloading the mix either way. When you wake up tomorrow, add this to your electrolyte filled diet, as Guy J is merely extending his hand to facilitate your path to recovery.

Generally when artists give away tunes for social media milestones, it is for reaching a certain amount of fans or followers on Facebook and Twitter respectively. Well Eric Prydz with his outlandish wealth of unreleased tracks, has decided to give away two Cirez D tunes for his 10,000th tweet. Both tunes are vintage Ciriez D with driving bass lines, emphatic acid influences and sophistication you know to expect from Prydz. I will repeat that these are free, so you will be adding these to your library.

2013 was a year of many momentous things. Including the insanely awesome above shot, which was taken by yours truly with a cracked iPhone (and it’s frankly still a mystery as to how I managed to pull it off. I mean, look at that thing. That thing is next level. Eat your heart out, Rukes). In keeping with all the seasonal nostalgia, here are my picks for the best tracks of the year.

Tech house lovers, consider yourself served, NYC producer Vecs who recently signed to Waste of Time Records just released his two track EP with the titled track “I Was” and “It Goes.” DJing since the age of 9, Vecs sure does know how to get you to move with these 2 tracks, and has even been getting the support of veteran DJs Roger Sanchez, Scumfrog, and Richie Santana, among others. If you like what you hear, also check out Mr. Vecs’ 2013 mix filled with techno and tech-house goodies to get you to Friday night which you can stream here. This is a must listen!

It’s a commonly held belief among the underground that Berlin is the ultimate vanguard when it comes to electronic music. “The shit coming out of Germany these days is way more innovative and experimental and compelling than anything in the US, man! Have you even been to Berghain?”
But when you spend 2013 listening to Disclosure, and then you’re suddenly confronted by a track like “Magnetic,” it becomes increasingly difficult to discount the UK as one of the biggest breeding grounds for #FutureGarageSpacetronica talent. With his latest, George FitzGerald (recently named one of the top 50 DJs in the world by none less than Resident Advisor) delivers a deliciously spacey listening experience that seems tailor made for late nights and early mornings alike. Dark, deep synths drive the melody, while eerie vocals and a pounding bassline add another heady layer to the vibe. Stream below and head to Beatport for the DL.
And if you’re in the US (you east coast dogs), be sure to catch this rising star’s upcoming live dates; he’ll be at the legendary Output in Brooklyn tomorrow and the equally legendary U Street Music Hall in DC on Friday. Get it while it’s hot — he’s swinging back to Switzerland and the UK after these two brief but epic US stops. More details can be found here.

Our favorite genre-hating French duo dropped their debut EP yesterday via Skrillex’s OWSLA, and genres be damned, this is not one to miss. Chock full of chilling industrial vibes that don’t skimp on the punches or energy level, Andrea is a fast paced and relentless ride that may lead you wonder what, exactly, is going on in Alesia’s head. Some of the tracks will be familiar to those of you who have been following the duo/team OWSLA — the clanging, eerily-pitched “Otho” was released as a single earlier this year and the techy, titular “Andrea” has been making the live set rounds. The electro-tinged “Jezabel” is a dark, hard-hitting banger best suited for the kind of deranged dance floors typically found in basement clubs and warehouses, while “Industriae” slows it down, packing a wallop with some truly guttural, metallic synths that would make even Gesaffelstein salivate. Stream it below in full and head to Beatport for the download if you’re dark and twisty like we are.
