Fehrplay puts on deep groove masterclass with latest EP, ‘Zeitgeist’Fehrplay Zeigeist Ep

Fehrplay is back with a fresh dose of analog cinema from his Zeitgeist EP. The two-track effort the latest from the techno and deep house mastermind’s own Mood of Mind imprint. The producer’s already turned in a busy 2018, splitting EP and single releases across his own label and Above & Beyond‘s mighty Anjunabeats. Fehrplay’s latest two-track sees him unleash his creativity with two unique compositions, each one a dark and twisting journey.

The EP’s title track kicks thing off with a bang, as a wall of buzzing synths collapses into a driving bassline. Synthwave-esque pads fade in and out as the breakdown arrives. A majestic, brassy lead rises behind bright strings and carries the energy over the kick before that secret agent soundtrack bassline returns. “Fantome” abandons the driving four-to-the-floor feel, opting instead for a thundering breakbeat while signature Fehrplay plucks and atmospherics tie it all together. Zeitgeist’s world is futuristic and dystopian, but its grooves are powerful enough to uplift listeners in any environment.

The most important day of every week: New Music Friday. As each week brings a succession of new music from some of electronic music’s biggest artists, here’s a selection of tracks that shouldn’t be missed.



Knapsack had to overcome his personal dissatisfaction with “Matrix,” which he pointed to as having been a deeply personal work. The rolling bass tune slides down warm hills of string and synth for a pleasing effect.


“Born At Night” has been an unreleased ID for over three years now. It’s finally arrived, with Dimitri Vangelis & Wyman pairing with Sirena to create a feel-good commercial house composition for the main stage.


DallasK adds his own cheery spin to the infectious Tritonal single “Luv U Right,” which draws its appeal largely from Lourdiz’ vocals. The original is twisted into a whistful pop house jam that summons carefree memories.


Newcomer Kevin Courtois joins forces with twerking extraordinaire Lexy Panterra for a mellow number called “Uncertainty” that certainly feels heavily influenced by The xx — from the warm guitar riffs, to the ethereal vocals and bittersweet atmosphere. They’ve done well in instilling a sense of calm into their record, much like the band that inspired them.


“Supercool” feels like the sonic equivalent of consuming an ice cream cone on a hot day. Olwik & Raie tap Felix Adebe for vocal duties, resulting in a funk-influenced number whose nostalgia is balance with a modern edge.


There’s no going wrong with a bubbly festival house track that coats its listeners in a sweet glaze of catchy vocals and euphoria-inducing saw synths. METAFO4R gets the job done effortlessly in, “The Best Part Of Me,” sparking the urge to happily bounce around to its galloping drop.


Haitian wonder Michael Brun brings the heat in the appropriately-dubbed “Spice,” whose pitched-down, but invigorating house underlay is transformed into a tougher number with the assistance of Kah-Lo’s verses.


This song is definitely NSFW, but a fantastic listen for feeling vengeful outside the office. TeaMarr’s fiery vocals speak to many, and the swing-based production beneath is wildly infectious.


Coyu‘s Suara imprint changed directions from its original tech house aesthetic in 2017, building up its portfolio in various other shades of house and techno since. Its newest EP showcases the melodic variety currently sweeping the underground, with “Pulsar” by Oliver Winters and GNTN serving as a standout.


It’s difficult not to want to funk out to Krafty Kuts and Dynamic MC’s, “Impact.” Funk-influenced guitar and bass are accented by other nostalgic elements, creating a retro scene in the mind filled with block parties and underground hip-hop clubs.


Fehrplay‘s newest EP on his Mood Of Mind imprint is filled with uplifting sentiment and blissful melodies that feel like a warm breeze or a fresh cup of coffee. Its title track is particularly tasteful, with chaotic riffs of synthesizer leading into a chunky drop that makes listeners want to stomp on the floor.


Up-and-coming Netherlands-based duo Silque offer up an infectious new original work titled “Chasing Love” on Martin Garrix’s own STMPD RCRDS. Striking piano chords and strong vocal loops power this easy listening house gem that’s worth multiple repeated listens.


Kaskade’s most recent delivery, “Fun,” with BROHUG and Mr. Tape has proven to be a versatile canvas for some solid remix work. AC Slater and Phlegmatic Dogs recently took on the Arkade label head’s newest original piece and now King Arthur is giving “Fun” another set-primed rework effort.


Kryteria Records helmer, Kryder comes through with a spicy new original work, “La Cumbiambera” alongside Columbian powerhouse collaborator, Cato Anaya. Be wary of starting this one though — once you turn it on you won’t be able to get yourself to turn it off. You’ve been warned.


Armada Records recruit Funkin Matt takes on “Twilight vs. Breathe” with a bouncy new remix treatment that’s primed for heavy club play. Reach for this one when looking for a smooth house cruiser — Funkin Matt won’t disappoint.


Tujamo and Salvatore Ganacci have a new weekend shuffler in the bag on their new joint effort. The collaboration, titled, “Jook It,” is a fist-pumping house thumper with Kingston’s Richie Loop providing his signature dubby vocals. “Jook It” is out now via Spinnin’ Records.


UK electronic outfit Vessels have enlisted Max Cooper for a remix of “Everyone is Falling,” from the band’s 2017 LP, The Great Distraction. Complementing the original with his personal touch, Max Cooper offers an extended electronic rework with a distinct experimental appeal.


Toronto mainstay DJ and producer Ryan Shepherd drops off a feel-good dance piece titled “Blue Monday” marked by addicting pitch bending vocal loops and effects. Bold keystrokes, snappy percussion, and tightly wound builds carry the tune through, coming together as an aced original work from Shepherd.


Shaun Frank grabs vocalist YA-LE for a sensual house joint on Ultra Records called, “Bon Appétit” that rides plucky synthwork and infectious verses with an ear worm hook that is perfect the tail end of pool party season.

Fehrplay releases expansive ‘The Walk’ EP

Fehrplay has returned with new music on a wide-reaching EP entitled The Walk.

The Norwegian artist has been making progressive music since 2011, and this latest EP sees him go further with his classically branded sound. After establishing his MOOD OF MIND imprint in 2017, Fehrplay has been consistently churning out music for the fans of prog and tech, with The Walk being the latest pillar in this expansion.

The EP begins with its title track, creating an immediate rabbit hole to get lost in — one that has different notions of synth work together in the same song. Underlying in a swirling and scintillating set of melodies is an ocean of calm that together tells a whole new story. Continuing with “Stranded,” Fehrplay creates futuristic soundscape grounded in expertly layered synths and an entrancing top line. “Roma” begins in ordinary fashion, but builds into something unexpected in deeper, more tech-oriented execution. All around, The Walk has something for everyone.

The most important day of every week: New Music Friday. As each week brings a succession of new music from some of electronic music’s biggest artists, here’s a selection of tracks that shouldn’t be missed.


Kyle Watson adds a low-toned, mystery-filled house beat to ZHU and Tame Impala‘s seminal “My Life.”

Swedish producers Dimitri Vangelis & Wyman know festival season is in full force as they deliver anthemic-feeling “Phantom.”

The Aston Shuffle give ‘everything they’ve got’ on piano driven house heater, “Everything I Got.”

Inverted alien embellishments make for an eerie take on house, as Malaa returns with new single, “Bling Bling.”

Airy synth work leads to a saxophone climax on Spencer Brown‘s “waves.wav,” taken from Brown’s Illusion of Perfection EP pt. III.

Mandy Jiroux effects rhythmic bliss on vocal-centric new single, “Running Out Of You.”

Autograf add an electronic vibe to Family of the Year’s “Hold Me Down” with their laidback rendition of the original.

Bondax tap vocalist Andreya Triana for this soulful, groove-filled original.

Fabian Mazur leans into future bass-style production in this smooth offering, featuring Nevve on the vocals.

The remixers got the message, and now, on this New Music Friday, they’ve met Zedd, Grey, and Maren Morris in “The Middle.” The remix pack for “The Middle” sees revamps from Maliboux, Curbi, and more.

Spinnin’ Records heavyweights Merk & Kremont add a layer of infectious funk and a heightened bpm count to Addal’s original, “Lies,” making for a spirited rework.

Pucker up, Benny Benassi and Sofi Tukker fans: the two dance music dynamos link up on new single “Everybody Needs A Kiss.”

This Birdfeed Exclusive will have all streamers wondering “Who’s That?” The same-titled EP arrives courtesy of Floridian producer and long time Dirtybird fan, C.H.A.Y.

It’s a good week to be a progressive house fan as Grum and Fehrplay co-release “Spirit” on Anjunabeats, an atmospheric tune that melts from one second into the next.

Diplo, Lil Yachty, and Santigold‘s viscous collaboration “Worry No More” gets the Keys N Krates treatment as the Canadian electronic trio release a chilled-out take on Diplo’s original. Keys N Krates hit sonic sweet spots with a beat swap and the occasional yet effective percussive addition.

Stripped down sonic seduction materializes in mellifluous form on smle‘s debut EP, Love Notes, released on Lowly Palace.

House music fans will find J. Worra‘s Mark The Beast collaboration, “Hourglass” to be a tasty, groovy treat.

As part of Afterlife Recordings’ latest vinyl and digital offering, Italian trio Agents Of Time have crafted “Paradigm,” an ethereal techno original.

Re-envisioning a Markus Schulz production is a formidable feat, but Giuseppe Ottaviani rises to the challenge in his “Safe from Harm” remix, a take that plays the original’s soaring vocal off of the track’s quintessential trance beat.

Vulpey gets electronically experimental on “Recovery Quest,” a track defined by its disjointed construction and resulting edge.

Funky Craig puts forth a trippy take on psytrance in aptly titled new release, “WestPSYde.”

 

Ramon Tapia puts a dark, driving spin on Midmood’s “Sely Ho,” transforming the original into a certified techno thumper with rumbling percussive accents.
