Even though we’ve been a fan of TACHES for years now, but we still have no idea who he is. When a little birdie told me he had a new song coming out this week, I decided to do some digging to see what I could find out ahead of the release, but it wasn’t much. We’ve only got a few tracks on his SoundCloud, but just looking at the names can give you an idea of who TACHES is – a sarcastic and witty European whose wit and humor shines through in his music. His last track was “Prints of Whales,” a clever wordplay on the Prince of Wales, and the track he released today is titled “Eat Your Friends,” and features vocals from Shoffy. On “Eat Your Friends,” TACHES has a serious deep house brew going on, as he starts with a scratchy melody and slowly adds more and more elements, finally turning it into a full blown deep house jam.

Bass, Drum & Bass | Alex Metric – Heart Weighs A Ton (Mat Zo Remix)

Posted by on November 5, 2014

Mat Zo  - Alex Metric Remix
As usual, you really have no idea what you’re about to get into when pressing play on a brand new Mat Zo track – and that’s exactly why we have a bit of a broner for the dude. His bi-weekly Mat Zo Mixes (see Soundcloud) are the epitome of “Doin It Live” – this track confirms that Mat Zo isn’t about genre restrictions. Damage Control quite possibly was one of the best albums to put EDM onto its ass in the last decade and the producer/dj is showing no signs of exhaustion. He’s getting ready to hit the road and break-in his brand new label, Mad Zoo in the coming months – here’s an exquisite taste of what to expect.

Progressive House | Sander van Doorn – Right Here Right Now (Neon)

Sander van Doorn - Right Here Right Now (Neon)
The vocal mix of his tune stunning tune from last year “Neon”, Sander van Doorn releases “Right Here Right Now”. It can be dicey to do vocal mixes of well established instrumentals and we have seen this happen to mixed success in the past couple years with the vocal mixes of “Spaceman” and “Tsunami” (you had no idea they did one) decided failures and the vocal mix of “I Could Be The One” working out quite well. This should turn out to be one of those successes, reviving the tune and giving it the potential for more commercial appeal without sacrificing the integrity of the tune. This song has become quite the hit that even one of the top soccer (football) clubs in the Netherlands PSV Eindhoven has decided to use it as its anthem.

Chill | ID – Moves Like Ms Jackson

With nothing more than an mp3 file and a cover art, this is how this track was submitted to me from an unknown email address. Too good to pass on, I uploaded it up on my personal SoundCloud to share with ya’ll. “Moves Like Ms Jackson” is a smooth tech house, deep house record incorporating samples from Outkast’s many classics over the years! If you have any idea who is behind this, hollar at me, I need to know! This is hands down a must listen!

**Update: this track is making its rounds on the blogosphere and made its way up on Hypem

Hip-Hop, Rap | GoldLink – The Heart

Posted by on January 7, 2014

Goldlink-TheHeart

GoldLink is really pressing his luck with his most recent release entitled, “The Heart”. Anyone with a halfway decent taste in music knows that Kendrick Lamar absolutely annihilated this beat on his mixtape Overly Dedicated a few years back. That being said, GoldLink absolutely held his own, and spit some introspective bars that give us a much better idea of the street life and family struggles that he was going through.

Although “The Heart” will not be featured on GoldLink’s upcoming project The God Complex it will surely keep us on our knees begging for more. Enjoy.
