Matchy & Bott inject mystic, slow-burning beauty into re:deep’s ‘One’

This post was originally published on this site

Germany’s re:deep creates “soulful-vocal-house.”

Through a most aptly-withheld moniker, re:deep burrows into the underground melodic house ecosystem. Comprised of DJ and producer Michael Schreiber, Patrick Lins, and singer-songwriter Claudia Fink, the group is becoming increasingly celebrated for their organic amalgamations of melodic house and ethereal electronica. One might say re:deep’s the embodiment of “going against the grain,” as they’re astonishingly distinct. They also branch out without using a single outside artist sample.

The mantra “quality music with depth and soul” is in the very fiber of their beings. re:deep’s most popular tune, “Walked-On Wood,” after all, is even vocally reminiscent of early Radiohead.

In 2013, re:deep dug deeper than ever before, when Schreiber created his Vordergrundmusik label in an effort to achieve audio-autonomy. Presently, he’s doing just that, as re:deep’s preparing to release a new album In Between. Before the new release, re:deep’s dropped off a remix EP for their track “One,” featuring Oh Sleep. The “One” remix EP exemplifies a singular beauty from its selected artists, in the same vein of how re:deep too creates. The group’s stamp of approval on the newly-minted reworks is a heightened display of their acute awareness of what makes a track recognizable in the first place.

The most notable rework of the track comes from the rising house duo Matchy & Bott, which consists of Björn Martin Bley and Yannik Bott. Although the two just recently started producing together, the producers both already have experience in the music scene spanning over the last eight years.

Matty & Bott’s near eight-minute rework of “One” is an aptly singular venture. It capitalizes on divine elements of euphoria in its emotive string orchestrations and progresses in a slow-burning, tribal house fashion that’s sure to be the one for quite a few after hours or sunrise/sunset sets.

Lane 8 compiles electrifying ‘2017 Winter Mixtape’

This post was originally published on this site

Lane 8 has released his winter 2017 installment of his seasonal mixtape series, enlivening even the frigid winter wind itself. The long-time Anjunadeep jewel has recently been releasing music via his own This Never Happened label, which made its debut with his own arresting deep house track “Fingerprint” just last year. With his impending Little By Little album set for release in January of 2018, the cult-like following Lane 8 has garnered over the past several years should expect to be soothed and grooved, if his recent releases, like “Atlas,” are any indication.

There is an air of overcoming and omnipotence running through this winter mixtape, urging the listener to not fall victim to the often immobilizing cold and ensuing complacence characteristic of the season. Lane 8 uses the two and a half hours to showcase some of his new music, and let the listener grow a bit more familiar with his wide-reaching tastes, implementing a house edit of Led Zeppelin‘s “Going Back to California.” The mix illuminates Lane 8’s unparalleled emblem of pensive, ethereal deep house/electronica, while also proving that he is one of the only men alive who can make a banjo sound atmospheric.

Kasbo – Snow In Gothenburg

This post was originally published on this site

Since his breakout with “World Away“—released in 2015 on ODESZA’s Foreign Family Collective—Swedish producer Kasbo has made quick work of developing a distinct sound. He’s since remixed artists from Big Gigantic to Vance Joy and spent time touring with the likes ofOdesza, San Holo, and Slow Magic. The producer’s spring touring schedule is still being fleshed out, but he has already been announced to play Hangout Festival and two weekends at Electric Forest.

On his newest single, “Snow In Gothenburg,” Kasbo showcases his artistically sensitive shadow, one that has lurked in the melodies of his tracks for years now. Drawing on influences in melancholic house, the song is an interpersonal journey full of atmospheric synths and waning vocals.

“The song itself is about loneliness and isolation, and the freedom of coming to terms with those feelings” says Kasbo of the track.  “Seeing the beauty of realizing that everyone has their own ways to go in life and that not everyone is supposed to have someone.”

GTA and Falcons connect on trapped out new collaboration ‘Buyaka’

This post was originally published on this site

GTA have always kept to a strict “death to genres” code, and generally, they’ve been able to disguise their production style around a wide variety of different sonics. There’s no doubt however that the Miami exports have a strong penchant for trap music, and when they deliver, it tends to go hard –– case and point, their newest piece alongside Falcons and Stush, “Buyaka.” LA’s Falcons, UK-based rapper Stush, and GTA all found their first pairing on a remix of 2015’s “What We Tell Dem,” and now the group has rejoined on a brand new original product that weaves Stush’s dubby spits through a turbulent trap beat that impressively complements the three producers’ bombastic styles.

The new track, which found its debut earlier this year in Falcons’ Diplo & Friends mix, stacks up multi-layered percussion behind patois-laced versework before dropping into a knocking break with a punchy hook. Stush’s heavy rhyme format grinds over Falcons’ and GTA’s stomping beat, blurring the gaps between trap, dancehall and hip-hop. “Buyaka” comes with a fitting A-Trak cosign, landing by way of Falcons’ longtime home imprint, Fool’s Gold Records.

Claude VonStroke delights in exclusive Club Space Miami mix, kicking off the Get Real tour

This post was originally published on this site

It’s hard to believe that Claude VonStroke and Green Velvet‘s Get Real collaborative project began as a mere accident. But with their seamlessly integrated sets and similar midwestern backgrounds in mind, the real mystery is why this institution’s inception hadn’t happened earlier on.

Each artist propels their penchant for deep and tech house in the Get Real project. Presently, the two are taking Get Real on a tour of the U.S. Ahead of their performance at Art Basel, which officially kicks off the Get Real tour, VonStroke’s released an exclusive Club Space Miami mix. Surely, the mix is a delightful testament to the mastermind and in the hour-long journey, it’s music that’s plenty easy to get real lost in.

Rihanna & SZA – consideration (MK remix)

This post was originally published on this site

Mark Kinchen, known better as MK, has released his remix of Rihanna and SZA’s “consideration.” With hundreds of releases under his belt, a career spanning three decades, and a hands on education in Detroit techno, Kinchen brings his expert production to the table, injecting his own Chicago house influenced synths and signature textures to the track.

At its core, the track is an amalgamation of contemporary hip hop and underground dance music. Synthesizing contemporary vocals from such legendary vocalists as Rihanna and SZA with prodding, deep house drums and atmospheric synths is no easy feat, yet Kinchen certainly seems up to the task. Kinchen showcase an impressive ability to draw out Rihanna’s latent dancehall influence; a testament to his quicksilver production M.O. Kinchen seems to turn everything he touches into dance-floor gold.

Premiere: Jeremy Olander – Crossed (Original Mix)

This post was originally published on this site

Jeremy Olander has found himself at the helm of a flourishing progressive house scene, much of it thanks to the work of his growing independent imprint, Vivrant. For his latest release however, the Swedish producer is leaving his home base to join the Anjunadeep family.

It’s not the first time he’s stepped out from Vivrant this year; back in May he landed on John Digweed’s Bedrock alongside Cristoph for their Last Dance EP.

For Olander’s Anjunadeep debut, he brings two tracks to the table: “Crossed” and “Araoz.” The former track, “Crossed,” which Dancing Astronaut is exclusively premiering, is a delightfully deep offering, making brilliant use of its percussion and lead progression. The track notably sustains its relentless groove across its entire seven-and-a-half minute arrangement, making it sure to go over well across dancefloors.

It’s a worthy addition to the Anjunadeep catalogue, and a stellar way to close out the year for Olander.

Pre-order Jeremy Olander’s new Anjunadeep EP here, which drops on December 8.

Jeremy Olander is currently embarking on a new Vivrant tour. Check out all his upcoming dates here.

Lane 8 releases ‘Atlas’ rework from upcoming sophomore album [MUST WATCH]

This post was originally published on this site

A mere one week after Lane 8 released the second single off his forthcoming album, Little By Little, comes a live rework of the same track, “Atlas.” Composed by Daniel Gold in his home studio in Denver, Colorado, the rework provides a visual window into a track that was deemed a stunning aural adventure by DA upon it’s initial release. The rework itself provides a more vibrantly-textured take on a nostalgic, more subdued original — complete with uplifting bass lines and electric guitar riffs that are both classy and quirky.

Lane 8’s sophomore album, Little By Little, is out Jan. 19, 2018 on his own imprint, This Never Happened

Gorgon City end the year with another jaw-dropping EP, ‘Groove On The Vinyl’

This post was originally published on this site

Between launching their very own imprint REALM, announcing their expansive 22-date “Kingdom Tour,” and taking time to talk with DA on their ubiquitous sound, Gorgon City continues to develop masterpieces in the studio. Their latest creative endeavor comes as their fourth EP project, dubbed Grooves on The Vinyl, out now on REALM.

Totaling four tracks in length, the EP taps into the Detroit tech-house underground to bring these musical tastes into commercial club spaces. Minimalistic builds, rugged bass lines, and steely beats continue to make up Gorgon City’s signature sound stamp. From the 80s electronica inspired synth patterns of “Trouble” to the euphoric releases of “Get Together,” Grooves on The Vinyl does well to remind listeners of Gorgon City’s passionate mission for future-forward house.
