This post was originally published on this site

British DJ/producer duo CamelPhat are a creative match made in heaven for deep house enthusiasts. When the long-running duo of Dave Whelan and Mike Di Scala met while indulging their shared youthful obsession over vinyl at Liverpool’s 3B Records, little did the pair know that a Grammy nod was in the cards for their rare pop crossover club hit, “Cola” — which has now gone platinum after dominating the charts in 2017.

Following their b2b set with Solardo at EDC Las Vegas recently, the duo now brings their impressive BBC Radio 1 Essential Mix to fans for repeated listening pleasure. The two-hour mix stands as a testimony to Camelphat’s expert curation and penchant for vibrant house music, as the duo moves through Adriatique‘s “Voices From The Dawn,” Catz ‘N Dogz‘s remix of Claptone‘s “Under The Moon,” and, of course, a handful of their own singles in “Dopamine Machine” and “The Solution.”

Lane 8 is without a doubt one of my favorite artists in all of electronic music. I have followed him in the very beginning when he was releasing off of French Express as well as Anunadeep. His productions always had an etheral, if not otherworldly quality to them. Lane 8’s innate talent of injecting introspection

Lane 8 reveals horde of new music in his debut BBC Essential Mix

This post was originally published on this site

Daniel Goldstein, better known as Lane 8, took to BBC’s Radio 1 Essential Mix to heighten an already watershed year in the producer’s career.

The two hour deep/melodic house mix is nothing short of a transcendent expedition through Lane 8’s past, present, and future. Despite his recent album release, Lane 8 showers the listener with unreleased tracks, starting with “Bluebird” a delicate, yet rousing collaboration with fellow This Never Happened artist, Anderholm. Lane 8’s Anjunadeep days seep into the folds via an acapella version of his 2014 “Diamonds” which he mashes with his own delicious rework of deadmau5‘s “Not Exactly.” Selections from his recent LP Little By Little not only makes frequent appearances, but are heavily remixed by the likes of Dirty South, Khaen, and Anjunadeep up-and-comer, Ben Böhmer.

Earlier this year, Goldstein released his Little By Little album via his very own, This Never Happened label. The imprint is predicated on its creator’s desire to deliver raw, authentic human experience and interaction. He is currently in the midst of his international Little By Little Tour, in which no cameras and/or phones are permitted to ensure fans “connect with each other and the music in the purest way possible.”

A legendary debut: Relive Avicii’s incredible first Essential Mix

This post was originally published on this site

The electronic music world was blindsided April 20 upon learning that Tim Bergling, better known as Avicii, was found dead in Muscat, Oman at just 28-years-old. Winner of two MTV Music Awards and recipient of multiple Grammy nominations, the Swedish DJ and producer left an indelible mark on dance music.

In 2010, as a 21-year-old wunderkind, Avicii appeared on BBC‘s Radio 1 for a debut Essential Mix to remember. The poignantly nostalgic mix is highlighted by his then brand new, “Penguin,” a stunningly melodic, piano-centric house track, which chimes in at around the 32-minute mark. “Levels,” of course, makes an appearance, along with emotive offerings via Swedish House Mafia, Armin van Buuren, and Alesso. The 120 minute journey is downright inundated with tracks emblematic of the fallen legend and his cardinal legacy, and serves as the best way to honor his incredible legacy.

Four Tet Essential Mix 2018

Following the release of his ninth studio album, New Energy, Kieran Hebden — aka Four Tet — has reworked the likes of Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith, Madvillain, Bicep and released a string of tracks under a mysterious symbol moniker, in addition to being added to a plethora of festival bills worldwide.

Now, Four Tet has unveiled his first BBC Radio 1 Essential Mix since the London producer debuted on the program in 2010.

The mix features an expansive array of tracks including Four Tet staples such as “Lush” and “Planet,” as well as a number of releases from such genre pioneers as Basement Jaxx, Ben Klock and Bicep. The mix also includes a number of deep cuts, unreleased tracks and the off kilter (yet strikingly tasteful) inclusions of tracks from Stephen Brown, Destiny’s Child, Selena Gomez and the queen of pop herself, Britney Spears.

Closing with Visible Cloaks’s galvanizing orchestral track, “Wheel,” the mix serves to be a triumphant return to the Essential Mix platform for Four Tet, one that sees the seasoned artist continue to reinvent the constructs of intelligent dance music.

Berlin-based Korean DJ Peggy Gou wanted to the be the first female Korean DJ to play Berghain. Now, having more than exceeded her goal, Gou’s become the first female Korean DJ to play BBC Radio 1‘s Essential Mix, and she’s not showing any signs of stalling her meteoric rise to stardom anytime soon.

A dynamic testament to her compelling curation and outpouring love for music, Gou moves from Arthur Russel’s “See-Through,” South Korean composer Yoon Sang’s “The Dawn,” and J Dilla’s “U and Ur Smile” with ease. If possessing cool and collected poise were a contest, Gou would indisputably win every time, and her Essential Mix may as well serve as the perpetual soundtrack.

Premiere: Yotto – Chemicals

Yotto, real name Otto Yliperttula, continues to build on his impressive list of achievements.

He’s made a return to Joris Voorn’s Green imprint to release the double A-side Chemicals / Second Life EP.  Though the artist debuted on Green last year with “Marisa” — named an Essential New Tune on BBC Radio 1 by the emotive dance virtuoso Kölsch — he continues to demonstrate his bona fide ascension. As “Chemicals” traverses texturized soundscapes, its melodic expansiveness takes on a life of its own, where rousing oscillations flourish like the swelling ripples of the ocean’s morning tide.

Though listeners of Yotto’s Essential Mix may recognize the number from the mix, “Chemicals’” tenacious melodic riffs and propulsive grooves ultimately leave them with no choice but to press “repeat.”

Undeniably, “Chemicals’” intoxicating affect washes over listeners, but as Yotto’s discernable big room kick drums and billowing synths become a defining feature of his art, it’s tracks like these that’ll ensure Yotto leaves an impact throughout the new year and beyond.

Chemicals / Second Life is out via Green March 2. Pre-order a copy here.

Charlotte de Witte solidifies meteoric rise in rousing Essential Mix debut

The quickly ascending Belgian stalwart and Fuse resident Charlotte de Witte made her rousing Essential Mix debut February 10.

De Witte’s imbued her signature deep and meandering melancholy into the mix, where she dives deep into the bellows of the most uncompromising techno trenches.

The mix is a steady, galvanizing slow-burn. As its energy snakes beneath minimal beats and between its sweltering pads, de Witte incorporates new music from herself as well as tracks from some of the underground’s finest acts like Cleric, Ambivalent, and Amotik.

The mix is an earnest testament to de Witte’s looming domination of the underground circuits. Considering her 2018 touring schedule is beginning to fill and her name is popping up all over the global festival circuit, it’s likely that we’ll be seeing much more of her in the months to come. Last year, DA named De Witte as one of 15 artists that rocked the underground in 2017, a decision backed up by her impressive Essential Mix debut.
