French disco project Venice Beach starts 2014 with a big one!
After being really involved with loops and samples the parisian bandhas taken the high road of production and composition. Working with
Lavinia Claws known for very diverse disco projects with Bottin or Thelonius, they put up together a sexy disco song with strong chorus ready to be whistled and heavy kicks and bass for the dance floor.
The original track comes with a Dub for those who are not feeling vocals and three remix versions visiting other universes. Futurewife (Seattle, PYT) has done a house mix with new violin arrangement. Dj Apt One (Philadelphia, Young Robots) has worked on glorious italo - moroderish version, and Miami based Lazaro Casanova famous for his productions on DFA/Nervous has taken the track in a heavy Murk-ish low deep house tempo.
German DJ duo Andhim brought us The Wizard of Us last year, making their debut on Get Physical Music with the 2 track EP. While the title track was a small hit in its own right, it was the b-side, ‘Hausch’ that stole the stage with its sunny vibes and feel-good atmosphere. Now the boys have given the track to fellow Cologne artist Dürerstuben, Denmark’s Kölsch and American techno-legend George Morel for a highly anticipated remix treatment.
With his latest album „Horsley Park“, released in late 2012, Rivera Rotation put himself back on the map, presenting a grown-up collection of well-crafted songs, produced in a tasteful electronic and deep house environment. Now Rivera Rotation returns with a selection of instrumentals, dub versions and remixes from the „Horsley Park“ sessions. An album with 16 songs for special club moments, coming out on a Lounge Records, which is first of all, well-known for their funk, soul & jazz artits like The New Mastersounds or Torpedo Boyz.
Pre-drawing the cherry on top, this single will be enhanced by H.O.S.H.‘s remix of “Sing Our Song”, already a Beatport Electronica #1 a few months ago. Founding member and figurehead of the Diynamic Music family and long time companion of Rivera Rotation, Holger pushed this song up to one rather strong club hymn.
But the virtual single-track, “Make It”, in a remix by Martin Den Hollander, upcoming producer and DJ from Münster/Germany and organizer of the renowned Wapelbeats festival, is the first single from „Horsley Park Revisited“. Little Trooper, the new project of Mojo Club resident and globally active producer of Renegades Of Jazz comes up with a rousing version of “Make it“. Let first summer feeling come in!
When OFF Recording member and prolific DJ/producer Chi Thanh steps up in line with Vienna based G-Stone Rec.member Rodney Hunter to do their magic on a remix you know it´s about killer dirty house grooves. This time it is the stunning Berlin based Anna F. who is strongly upcoming as one of the big new singer/songwriter hopes, receiving the remix treatment on her dreamy song „Too Far“ which at the same time is an delicious taster for Anna’s soon to be released debut album “King In The Mirror” (due Febr. 28th 2014).
Chi Thanh most notably did remixes for artists such as Miriam Bryant, Wankelmut, Booka Shade, Gossip. His own EP “Let’s Play” (OFF Recordings) recently went to top40 on Beatport and was also featured by legendary Pete Tong in his BBC Radio1 Show. For his Anna F. Remix Chi Thanh built a deep club atmosphere with an epic breakdown, where Anna’s angelic vocals shine and create an emotional counterfeeling to the throbbing and pulsating house beats.
Rodney Hunter delivers a more uplifting version with hypnotic synth work while still keeping it deep and using Anna F.s haunting voice to a perfect club song.

On 10th March, Tensnake – AKA German DJ and producer Marco Niemerski – will be releasing his highly anticipated debut album ‘Glow’ on Virgin. Featuring an impressive range of collaborations which include three time Grammy-winning Stuart Price (AKA Jacques Lu Cont), MNEK and the almighty Nile Rodgers, ‘Glow’ is a new milestone in a career which has travelled the world’s greatest dance floors.
After sumptuous house cut See Right Through reached Beatport top 5, ‘Love Sublime’ is the new single from ‘Glow’ – a delicious slice of disco pop adorned with the unmistakable guitar groove of Nile Rodgers and the beguiling vocals of Fiora. The single was premiered byAnnie Mac on Zane Lowe’s Radio 1 show as Hottest Record In The World. Love Sublime is accompanied by remixes from Duke Dumont, Ewan Pearson and Le Youth and released on March 09th worldwide. So there should be the perfect version for nearly anyone…
Tensnake earned his towering reputation as one of house and disco’s leading producers after Coma Cat smashed dancefloors worldwide, and earned him his name as a game changing dance pioneer.
After a summer of Ibiza sets including Pacha alongside deep house master Solomun as well as Defected shows at Booom, plus a US tour, Tensnake was finishing off 2013 with a bang. Recently he headlined the Boiler Room enlisting fellow house and disco enthusiasts Skream, Krystal Klear and Medlar.
2013 was a phenomenal year for Booka Shade, having returned with their fifth artist album ‘EVE‘ and toured the world with their incredible live shows. Stand out gigs from 2013 included their live set at London’s Oval Space and their live performance at the 20th Anniversary of BBC Radio 1′s Essential Mix at The Warehouse Project.
‘Crossing Borders’ was co-written with fellow Berliner and vocalist Fritz Kalkbrenner, most notably for his vocals on ‘Sky & Sand’ with his brother, Paul. Booka Shade first met Fritz when he asked them to remix one of his songs, “as we´re fans of his voice, we thought it would be a great idea if he would sing a vocal for one of our demos for the new album. He came to our studio with the lyrics of ´Crossing Borders´ and within 1 hour, the song was recorded.”
‘Crossing Borders’ provoked a huge reaction with the fans and has resulted in artists lining up to make their mark on the track. In the coming months you can expect to hear remixes from the likes of Kolombo, Chopstick & Johnjon, Mathias Kaden, Pleasurekraft, Chi Thanh as well as Booka Shade themselves. Featuring Andy Cato from Groove Armada on the trombone, ‘Crossing Borders’ is enriched with acoustic and chilling electronic tones and demonstrates the trials and tribulations of the every day struggle “we’ve got to go on, even if we stray, crossing borders to another side”. Let’s celebrate the Booka Sound!
Good things take time, and the time the young up and comers from Hamburg 90sechzig90 have taken to go back to their roots and publish this brand new banger EP “Changes” on Exposure Music was most definitely worth it. After debuting on Exposure Music with the label’s first ever release “Europa EP” (supported by names like Claude VonStroke, Mr. Statik, Amine Edge, Oliver Schories, Treasure Fingers, Etienne de Crécy and more) almost exactly a year ago, both 90sechzig90 and Exposure Music made their ways through the music industry on parallel courses, only to find themselves rejoining again now for this new release.
With a smashing new EP featuring an exclusive remix by label mate BENSEN and two further incredible tracks, 90sechzig90 is sure to take off even higher than they already have this past year. The EP shows off the process of time following the first release and how Exposure Music and 90sechzig90 have transformed in this past year.
“Changes” depicts the back and forths that inspired the duo. A driving bassline serves as a great underline to the switching of deep melodic inserts and high pitched sirens. The extreme ups und downs really get your blood flowing and put you in the perfect place to look forward to what is coming next on this great EP!
“Not Good For You” starts off with a mysterious and haunting build up, leading up to the point when the chilling deep vocals begin. Fast paced percussions get you right into a dancing and grooving mood and won’t leave anyone not nodding their heads to the beat. The message may be ” too much of it, is not good for you baby”, but don’t worry, you won’t ever get enough of this track!
With its spooky cineastic Rhodisch intro the BENSEN Remix leaves one curious of what’s next. While thinking of somewhat moody or deep shit, a whisteling builds up and a dark voice announces the snappy strong kick and bassline, that will push you through this piece of groovy driving work and leaves you with the message: to much of it.. is not good for you, baby.
Now, supported by the biggest names like Kenny ‘Dope’ Gonzales, Mark Knight, Monika Kruse, Claude VonStroke, Animal Trainer, Wildkats, The Glitz, Benno Blome, Digitalism and many more, the story of Let’s Go Dancing goes further.
While the “One Yeah” EP, supported by names like Armin Edge, Dcup, Luetzenkirchen, Monte, The Mekanism, Peter Kruder, Nick Maurer and Oliver Schories, came with some slow-mo house & soulful oriented tracks, latter point will be widen up to more uplifting summery vibes.
Coming out right on time, Karera Record‘s new “Hit Me” EP is not only for those playing – more or less – on the colder north side of the hemisphere, but for all jogs wishing some faster push on the floor.
Hit me, hit you, hit whatever you want. Unless you feel it, this personal, unconscious touch of emotion, passionate the dancing crowd and give them an unmistakeable smile on their faces. Is it a heartbeat, is it clap or funky a plugged guitar? – You name it!
HiFi Brown has fished out a vast assortment of samples from his pop-filled ocean that take you on a flying carpet ride of (metallic!) sounds. Recorded in Vancouver, mixed and mastered in Berlin, „Chrome Orphan EP“ sends the listener on a hypnotic ride in the bat mobile through a sinisterly blissful comic universe. Manically cackling super villains tip toe down acoustic fire escapes, glowing synth comets illuminate the night’s sky above, shattering echoes accumulate into card houses of dizzying heights. From the depths of the catacombs, beats and basses reverberate, emulating the dark lure of endless Berlin techno nights.
HiFi Brown‘s ‘Chrome Orphan EP’ is an iconoclast collage – dense, personal, grinning cunningly and glimmering with nostalgia – meanwhile interlaced with the melancholy one may feel on an early morning dance floor, when all those bodies have been danced to exhaustion and heads hang longingly in far away galaxies.
