Good Morning Mix: Gorgon City dishes out house beats on new Cookout mix [Exclusive]Gorgon City 1

Following a groovy disco mix from The Knocks, Sirius XM’s The Cookout enlists Gorgon City to go a bit deeper on the newest episode of its famed weekly mix series. With past episodes including Tchami, Malaa, Whethan, and more, things are set to literally “heat up” as the newly launched Diplo’s Revolution continues to develop its feature content.

The English duo is sure to include some of their latest jams, including select “Terrace Dub” reworks from their recently released Escape album and a remix of Weiss’ 2018 hit, “Feel My Needs.” They maintain the house-heavy vibes with a Lane 8 remix, Karma Kid & Fono’s recent collaboration “Clap Your Hands,” Rampa’s two-year-old “Necessity,” and other prime selections.

Gorgon City is currently on their Escape Live tour, with stops in Chicago, Toronto, Brooklyn, and more, rolling the train through February 2019. Head here for tickets and more info.

Tchami drops a double dose of house with ‘Aurra / Shades’ EP

Tchami is never far off with a fresh helping of top-shelf house tunes. The star’s latest work brings the heat from beat one with Aurra / Shades, a new two-track EP arriving on his own CONFESSION imprint.

The release is the first multi-song project from the producer since No Redemption: a collaborative EP with fellow house heavyweight, Malaa. The duo delivered a deliciously dark and slinky array of tunes. However, it’s clear Tchami was looking to lighten things up with his latest release.

“Aurra” leads it off with crisp piano stabs and an ultra-slick bass line. Pitch-switching vocals chop and splash over the driving groove, pushing the song’s energy in an expertly executed ebb and flow. “Shades” takes the EP deeper and warmer, maintaining peak-hour percussion intertwined with gooey synth chords and a surging vocal hook. Both tracks are bright and joyful, with “Shades” especially packing enough sunshine to make the listener wonder if Tchami is striving to soak up the last remnants of summer 2018.

Tchami is the latest to join Siriux XM’s The Cookout for over an hour’s worth of house music. Launched in 2016, the series has brought everyone from JAUZ to Luttrell for exclusive mixes, and their latest showcase is the Confession label head himself. Known for his groovy, futuristic, soulful take on underground house, Tchami tagged onto The Cookout’s decks with an impressive array in track choices. Starting out with jackin’ house from Wax Motif, the mix hits everything, traversing from tech house out of Chris Lake and Chris Lorenzo’s Anti Up project into to the rabbit hole blog haus era Chromeo remix from Carte Blanche. All in all this is an impressively strong showing for a radio show guest mix, demonstrating Tchami’s knowledge of his craft and his contemporaries in weaving uplifting beats and surprises together in one motion.

Malaa keeps things dark with sleek new underground club cut ‘Cash Money’

Malaa keeps things dark with sleek new underground club cut ‘Cash Money’Malaa Charly Chivteam

Malaa is back with new music, just ahead of the anonymous producer’s North American Illegal tour kickoff this fall. The masked beatmaker’s latest deliver comes by way of “Cash Money” building the anticipation for his forthcoming Illegal Mixtape Vol. 2. The new original work is the second single from the impending compilation, following the project’s first infectious teaser, “Bling Bling.” Pair both singles side by side, and the new mixtape’s aesthetic really begins to take shape.

Whirling, ominous tech house layers are juxtaposed with tightly wound kicks stringing together the track’s propelling warehouse-primed energy. Designed as an underground club cut, “Cash Money” pushes Malaa’s signature dark, G-house-inspired sound. The track is out now via Tchami‘s CONFESSION imprint, and is a worthy addition to Malaa’s continually-growing catalogue of dangerous, club-ready sonics.
