House | NVOY feat. Youngman – Sky High (Sonny Wharton Remix)

Posted by on August 1, 2014

Every track the Oxford-duo NVOY has released has been bigger than the last – and that most certainly goes for one of their most recent singles, “Sky High.” (Heck, it’s in the name)

But in this remix, fellow Brit Sonny Wharton injects the original with a shot of adrenaline, turning it into an whirlwind dancefloor smash. Press play and take flight.

Alternative, Indie | Painted Zeros – SVALBARD EP (Free Download)

Posted by on July 24, 2014

Painted Zeros

The debut EP from Brooklyn-based Painted Zeros is, for lack of a better word, awesome. The five tracks comprising SVALBARD are an assertive and creatively varied journey through the psyche of singer/songwriter/guitar player/producer/jack of all trades Katie Lau. No fillers here, unless you count 30 seconds of tight experimental wandering halfway through — the EP ranges from deceptively fragile and New Order-tinged (“This American Life”) to ecstatic and garage rock-y (“Jaime”) to moody-yet-hopeful-yet-delicate-yet-steely (“Too Drunk”). It manages to feel at once retro and searingly modern — a tricky balance attempted by many but achieved by few. Check out SVALBARD in full below and hit the free download, because free download.

Listen, I’m not going to act like we’re not late on this. We are, but that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t post it. Released on Black Butter Reords, and included in Tchami’s recent “Pete Tong All Gone” essential mix today, “Lately” is a UK garage masterpiece. Sampling Aluna George’s vocals on Disclosure’s “White Noise” Jade Blue and Frequency have come with an absolutely killer track. The vibes on this are too good.

Deep House | Disclosure x Friend Within – The Mechanism

If you were to ask Disclosure if their music is “deep house” they would tell you it isn’t. Which is fair I guess, because if we’re being technical, you’d call it “UK garage.” The fact still remains, Disclosure has pretty much popularized a “pop” version of deep house that has sparked a movement that’s combating the progressive house nonsense that you hear regularly on the Beatport charts. Deep house is in, progressive house is out. I’m not wild about this new Disclosure track, but we’re always willing to take it von deeper. Disclosure. Friend Within. The Mechanism. April 15th.

Bass, Deep House | NVOY – Don’t Ever

Posted by on March 30, 2014

With the arrival of springtime and summer a moment away on the horizon, it seemed inevitable that the UK house duo NVOY would provide us with something to cater to those vibes. While their previous releases have all been deep, club-appropriate bangers, this track is a much airier one that I envision myself hearing at some chic, rooftop, poolside day party in the upcoming months, full of trendy socialites with good taste in music and bottomless Aperol Spritz. But I mean, even if I still don’t get an invite to the party, I’m confident in the growing hype of NVOY, this track will still be spinning. Hold your breath for their first official release here soon!

I cannot even begin to express how much I feel everyone needs to jump on the Stwo wagon – like right now. As one of the keystone pioneers of  a new realm of sound design, in addition to being a visionary of the future garage vibe, this Paris-based musician can not and will not stop throwing down quality track, after quality track. Check out his newest release, up for free download, a remix of producer Sango and vocalist SPZRKT’s chilled-out “Middle of Things.” If at any point you need a slightly funky, down-tempo track to spin on this fine, Friday night, you’ve found it. Like this guy on Facebook or something: you’ll want to stay updated.
