Something about European/British accent rapping gets me fired up. Vato Gonzalez dropped “Baseline Riddim” back in April of 2017. If you have not heard it, it comes highly recommended from DJ’s across the globe. The track took over festival and club stages all summer and through the new year. The original was released on the
Danny Avila cemented his status as a multi-genre guru via Style Sessions, an eight-week engagement that situated the Spanish sensation behind the decks to spin an alternate genre each week. Flitting from future big room to disco house to moombahton in a weekly commitment that would likewise canvass trap/bass, drum & bass, deep & tech, trance, and g-house, Avila let his technical talent do the talking during the Style Sessions, but the conversation centered around Avila’s astonishing versatility does not, and did not halt there — it rather continues at a fluid rate, Avila’s “DJsounds Show 2017” mix at Ministry of Sound furthering the discussion. Avila’s “DJSounds Show 2017” mix melds the auditory with the visual, training a camera on Avila’s deck to allow listeners to observe Avila live spin the set in what emerges as yet another awe inspiring product from the producer.
“Moving Pieces” is a standout in sonic nostalgic for the summer of 2017. Its beauty begins with Kyle Reynolds‘ stunning and welcoming vocals with cunning guitar licks. The drop introduces a deep bass that sits nicely alongside the percussion. The silky synth pads enhance a warm, rosy nostalgia throughout.

About Ministry of Sound:
A brand that is synonymous with everything dance music since first established in the UK in 1991, Ministry of Sound is the world’s biggest dance music brand. Home to a world renowned nightclub, and globally recognized record label with international events, Ministry of Sound is behind the biggest, genre-defining hits of the last 25 years of dance music with releases from Todd Terry, Wolfgang Gartner, MK, Eric Prydz, Duke Dumont, and many more.
Martin Bresso, better known by Tchami, has released the official music video of his “World To Me” (feat. Luke James). This release comes as a precursor to Tchami’s Revelations EP, slated for an August 25th, 2017 release.
The French producer is most certainly one of the many pioneers in the future house genre. Tchami began using the term “future house” as a tag on SoundCloud, and it was eventually picked up by the electronic music industry and its leaders. His unique sound has led to remixes and collaborations with iconic electronic music producers like DJ Snake, AlunaGeorge, Martin Garrix, and Jack Ü.
The “World To Me” music video takes a step back and looks at a wide range of the diversity and beauty in humanity. Everyone’s different in their own ways, and that’s why people mean the world to other people.
In partnership with Ministry of Sound, Jenaux breaks out with “I Want Your Love,” a funk-filled production featuring the vocals of Bryn Christopher. Marking the followup to “Get It On,” “I Want Your Love” displays Jenaux’s talent, proving he is a seasoned veteran of the trade. Jenaux’s sound is the one we have been waiting for — he pushes past the tempting confines of the generic “future” sound and adds a new dimension to the topline to create an entirely new genre. The New York native tears through the three-and-a-half minute song with excellent vocal cuts and highly impressive synth construction. Though his productions are few and far between, it’s not often that you see a talent as promising as Jenaux — and it’s exciting.
