Premiere: HOKI – The PushHoki Press Shot Courtesy Artist

HOKI seemed to appear out of nowhere. The newly minted, relatively enigmatic duo comprised of Varti Deuchoghlian and Brent McCormick clearly had their proverbial ducks in a row when getting their start, utilizing connections gained from their respective musical pasts and coming out the gate with strong remixers in Clarian, Matthias Meyer, and Facundo Mohrr. Their team, network, and knack for melodic house production in place, they soon announced that the run of singles they’ve been releasing would become an album—an intriguing way to make an entrance, indeed.

The latest single from the upcoming LP comes in the form of ‘The Push.’ Per their established aesthetic, the track is a euphoric track assisted by McCormick’s vocal touch. Its thick bassline, sweeping strings lacing the background, and twinkling synth melodies are universally appealing, and primed to do well on the dancefloor. Given their large support system in the melodic house arena, which includes Lee Burridge and the aforementioned remixers among it, we’re sure this one will be rinsed plenty in the coming months.

Premiere: Justin Jay – Rave ToolFlauntMagazine JustinJay BenGlasser 3

Justin Jay has had a robust 2019. The prodigious producer, DIRTYBIRD top player, and label owner released his third album, Everything Will Come Together, in May to critical acclaim. At the end of September, he commenced an expansive tour across the US in celebration of reaching the third anniversary of his now-iconic LP, Fantastic Voyage. In the meantime, however, he made a connection with the Desert Hearts crew—and it’s with the California collective label that he’s housed his latest creation.

Future feels is a groove-fueled EP whose tracks build off one another in a groove-heavy fashion. We’ve taken the more extended cut, “Rave Tool,” whose centerpiece is its robust, funk-infused bassline that moves the piece forward at a spry pace. The low-end really shines in “Rave Tool,” which is notably lacking in melody and sparse in its vocal usage; and it’s this aspect that makes it particularly hypnotic.
