Played in festival sets and house mixes ubiquitously over the past year, Dom Dolla’s track “San Frandisco” now has a remix from Beatport dominator Eli Brown. The UK-based house producer and DJ takes the BPM up in the chart-topping single, which talks about San Francisco’s house scene and how it stems from its ’60s and ’70s roots back in the day.
The track adds a darker warehouse vibe to the already energetic track. With stomping percussion, undulating risers, and old school rave stabs, Brown’s remix plays nicely into any sets looking to take house fans further into the night.
On why he asked Brown to remix the track, Dolla states, “Eli’s sense of groove is relentless and this remix is no exception. I’ve been playing his weapons for years so it’s great to finally get his take on one of my own records and he has put such a nasty late night feel to it. Great bloke too, thanks for smashing it mate.”
Brown is currently wrapping up his Come Together World Tour, with upcoming dates throughout the UK and Spain. With releases on Repopulate Mars and Toolroom and artists like Carl Cox, Green Velvet and Claude VonStroke backing him to name a few, expect more stompers to come from the Bristol producer.

In 2019 as tech-house enjoys its place as the current “it” genre—the number of releases folding into the genre’s typical tropes of bouncing bass lines and edgy vocal samples has skyrocketed as of late. No complaints of course, especially with fresh cuts landing on a weekly basis from a wide variety of producers.
With so many new releases though, it becomes statistically more difficult to find a track that really stands out; with those one or two extra details that separate it from the rest. LondonBridge, who co-founded Space Yacht and has been a producer and DJ in his own right for years, accomplished this task with his latest, “What Goes Up Must Come Down.”
On his latest cut, the listener can hear both the love LondonBridge has for the genre now and the how that appreciation has evolved over time. The bass line is funky and smooth, the vocals are simple and and they show up only when they need to, making “What Goes Up Must Come Down” a worthy new setlist addition.
