Premiere: Oliver Dollar and Daniel Steinberg – Another Gal (Original Mix)

This post was originally published on this site

Long-time friends and Berlin house mainstays Oliver Dollar and Daniel Steinberg have teamed up to deliver four energetic, club-ready cuts for Steinberg’s Arms & Legs imprint. Complementing each other’s strengths in the studio, the two German producers seamlessly blend together catchy house grooves with harder techno sensibilities to create a stand-out sound distinct from their own individual output.

The EP’s lead track, “Another Gal,” is ready for both big festival stages and tiny packed clubs. Starting off with bold thudding kicks, fuzzy hats swirl away in the background while a filtered vocal snip works up a sweat and slowly unfurls with a swinging groove underneath. The torqued up kicks delight the ear and propel the track endlessly forward as the bright vocal sample plays off backing distortion. With early support from heavy hitters across the board such as The Black Madonna, Skream, and A-Trak, it’s safe to say that “Another Gal” will be pleasing crowds all throughout the summer.

Stream “Another Gal” below, ahead of its May 26 release.

Stream Shiba San and Will Clarke’s new collaboration, ‘Don’t Hate Me’ [Exclusive]

This post was originally published on this site

French producer Shiba San is one the few producers who backs up his vast reserves of talent with a mysterious back story, adding a layer of depth to his alluring persona. The experienced producer toured the global underground dance music circuit for fifteen years, before finally bringing his well-rounded hip-hop and house fusion style to North America back in 2014.

Claude VonStroke welcomed Shiba San into his Dirtybird imprint began back in 2014 with his hit single “Okay,” which propelled the producer to an international audience. Working with the label ever since, Shiba San has released a large number of hits over the past few years.

His latest track with Will Clarke, “Don’t Hate Me,” reprises their yearly partnership for the annual Dirtybird BBQ compilation album. The unfussy, club oriented single has a distinct tech house influence on each of its crisp elements, ranging from the thumping drum samples to minimalist bass lines. This allows the track to achieve a fine balance between house, minimal techno and the “tech funk” sounds that Dirtybird has pioneered over the last twelve years.

The track is a part of the Dirtybird BBQ: Secret Ingredients compilation, out on May 19.

The compilation is currently available for preorder. Tickets for Dirtybird BBQ are available here.

Boys Noize purveys a thrilling, warehouse-appropriate mix for ‘The Ransom Note’

This post was originally published on this site

With rampant overdrive and reverb, the warehouse music Alex Ridha pulls into yet another Boys Noize mix grabs its listeners by the chest and throws them into a dark dance floor filled with sonic booms, thuds, and hisses. In the culture surrounding this music one can find leather-clad punks bouncing from dusk to dawn to repetitive acid-synth arpeggios in clubs around the globe. A complex melting pot of techno, punk rock, and disco house gives Boys Noize the unique sounds and image many associate with the project.

There is something beautifully sinister to be found in the sweaty incantations that a mix like this places over its listeners. In this featured mix for The Ransom Note, Ridha teases out samples from and remixes of tracks in Mayday, his latest feature length album. Listeners can hear vocals from “Overthrow,” “Euphoria,” and “Midnight” cutting in and out between hypnotic kick drums and erratic breaks.

In an interview with The Ransom Note that accompanies the release of the mix, Ridha opens up about the inspiration, motivation, and history behind his music. Tracing his roots back to the 1980s house with names like Farley Jackmaster Funk, Steve Silk Hurley, Marshall Jefferson, and DJ Pierre, Ridha accounts his early days in DJing as a 15-year-old in Berlin gay and house clubs.

The atypical culture surrounding Boys Noize mentioned above seems rooted in Rihda’s 1990s experiences, such as seeing 2manyDJs mixing techno with punk-rock by Iggy & the Stooges. Ridha ends the mix by mixing punk rock with techno, enigmatic of the Boys Noize project, but also historically ironic because Iggy Pop hated techno. When interviewers ask, “what does your music sound like,” Ridha responds appropriately: it’s like “punching into a sunny side up egg.” Ridha’s jovial attitude brings to mind the yellow smiley face symbol iconic to acid house and adopted under the Boys Noize name for nostaligic merchandise. The interview is full of comical remarks by Ridha, and the mix features a transformed vocal with his unique “drink more water” introduction, which is a recurrent trope throughout many of his mixes.

Nora En Pure releases soothing new EP, ‘Conquer Yosemite’

This post was originally published on this site

Deep house sensation Nora En Pure has hit the ground running in 2017 with an outstanding new EP, Conquer Yosemite. Despite the titular challenge, the release is a collection of free-flowing tracks from multitalented producer Daniela Niederer.

Opening track, “Diving with Whales”, has asserted itself as a fan favorite since it’s premiere on Pete Tong’s BBC Radio 1 show in December and sets the atmospheric tone for the rest of this stellar release. The ensuing tracks “Caught in the Act” and “Make Me Love You” gleam at every turn with thumping basslines and gentle piano chords, while “Freedom Lives Within” is laced with a relaxing tropical percussion.

“The Conquer Yosemite EP is a reflection of places you would want to go to experience overwhelming calm & peace,” Niederer told Dancing Astronaut.  “‘Freedom Lives Within’ is the core of that feeling. When I am on the road I try to take in as many atmospheres and like to grasp places on a deeper level than the obvious, which I tried to incorporate into this EP.”

Between her immaculate attention to detail and indomitable spirit, Conquer Yosemite is Niederer’s greatest feat yet and is sure to light up festival dance floors–including her Coachella debut–all summer long.

 Stream “Conquer Yosmite” below.

Snø – Sunrise (Dear David Remix)

This post was originally published on this site

2016 was the year that Swedish tech house tedium buster Dear David stepped out of the shadows and made with a stunning run of new material. In the wake of debut Sony Music single ‘Fever’ and a standout remix of Roby’s ‘Waterfals,’ the Stockholm native kickstarts 2017 with an indicator of the shape and stamina to come for the year ahead. With a longer, moodier and more patience requesting take on his signature fusion of progressive and tech house sounds, ‘Sunrise’ benefits for a steady building and delicately layered dose of well-oiled club music. With a second single anticipated for the first quarter of 2017, there appears to be a less-trodden middle ground ready to be championed in Dear David’s capable hands.

Dave Clarke Protests Trump, Refuses To Play In US While He’s President

This post was originally published on this site

It was recently announced that “The Baron of Techno,” Dave Clarke, will not be performing in the US for the next four years. This comes after our 45th president was sworn into office this month and a subsequent uproar from the masses occurred. Clarke announced this news on his Facebook last week stating, “I simply cannot consider coming to the US professionally when there is a Misogonyst Narcissist Racist President in office.”

Considering Clarke has been an influential member of the techno community for over three decades now, this might come as a shock to many. This will inevitably stir up some conflict from both Trump supporters and Trump haters that are members of Clarke’s fan base. Clarke states that even if he wanted to, he most likely would not be able to renew his work visa anyway due to Trump’s “‘Hire American’ policy.”

We will be missing something in our clubs for the next four years to say the least. However, I hope more influential artists take a stand like Clarke did in the coming months. You can see the entire Facebook post below:

Premiere: Sebjak – My Love (Radio Edit)

This post was originally published on this site

Sebjak’s latest release on BiblioTheque Records pairs pristine progressive house elements with a driven techno layer for an added bit of edge. “My Love” bustles with stirring pads and arpeggiators that swim and submerge in a sea of buzzing synthesis. The unique combination is navigated effortlessly by the Swedish producer — nothing feels out of place here in this strange brew of dancefloor decadence.

Guy Gerber & Deniz Kurtel – Here Comes The Rain (Original Mix)

This post was originally published on this site

Guy Gerber told Huffington Post that music should be “strong and painful” when discussing his new collaborative project with LED designer and fellow musician Deniz Kurtel, titled “Here Comes The Rain.” The song exudes melancholic overtones thanks to a haunting piano progression and rattly sound effects in the background that do indeed speak to dreary, rainy days. Despite these aspects, “Here Comes The Rain” manages to maintain a dreamy atmosphere as well, peppered with rhythmic drums and moving vocal samples that give off a hopeful undertone which balances out its more sorrowful counterparts.

The track is slated for a January 27 release on Rumors, after circulating for roughly two years. Its long-awaited release comes at an opportune time, emulating emotions the dance world experienced around excessive violence that has struck the community as of late while and allowing a peaceful and moving foundation to work through them.

DA Premiere: SHADED & Harvard Bass – Time Wasting ft. Rossirock (Kenny Glasgow Remix)

This post was originally published on this site

SHADED and Havard Bass are two artists whose distinctive styles caught Tiga’s attention enough to become regulars on his imprint, Turbo Recordings. The two acts have successfully combined their talents into a scintillating EP, entitled Time Wasting. The titular opening track kicks the EP off on a high note, which exudes Harvard Bass’ heavy influence, SHADED’s finesse, and is aided by Rossirock’s MC skills.

The above artists astutely chose Kenny Glasgow as a remixer, who strips the collaboration down to its core and reforms it into a deeper, hypnotic mix. Nuanced synths and eclectic samples take the place of more powerful elements present in the original, allowing its rhythmic underlay to play a more prominent role. The polished tone and enduring nature of the remix make Kenny Glasgow’s rendition of “Time Wasting” a good listen in multiple settings.

Time Wasting will be released on January 20. Preorder the EP, which includes Kenny Glasgow’s remix, here.
