Hot Tracks - January 2014

Well come to a new feature of our blog... Hot Tracks is exactly what it says it is, awesome tracks that we just can't stop playing... be it an old gem that we have only just discovered or a new dance floor smasher.

So with out further ado, here is what we are loving at the moment...




Artist : Loverdose
Track : Tabula Rasa (Slow Edit)
Label : Prison Entertainment UK
Release Date : 01 / 06 / 2011

The London based duo, Loverdose, have over 10 years experience in dance music production and DJing around the world.

This is a beautifully crafted track, almost a faultless debut release. The track posses a relaxing and floaty melody whilst maintaining a driving beat and bass line that just keeps you dancing. The production combined with a psychedelic vocal rich in vocoder modulation gives the whole track a bitter sweet vibe... Truly beautiful piece of electronic. Hope you like it to.

Artist : Saso Recyd 
Track : The Pilot
Label : Rawthentic Music
Release Date : 31 / 10 / 2011

Heard Dubfire play this back in September 2013 and it just hooked me right away. 

Produced by a budding producer from Bitola, Macedonia. The track is kicking and percussively driven track that features a minimal amount of melody. The production features a delightfully industrial feel whilst remaining reserved (not an all out smashing techno record), there's a brief spoken vocal that gives a slightly disturbing vibe that truly complements the over all aura and sound of the record.

Artist: Debruit
Track : Nigeria What?
Label : Civil Music
Release Date : 11 / 01 / 2010

It seems like we are mainly unearthing old and hidden gems at the moment. I didn't realise how old some of these tracks is. I accidentally discovered this through a new spinning buddy that you may meet on the Lazy Tom label soon. 

This is such a lively record full of cleverly arranged African percussion and instrument sounds. Debruit was having an awesome year in 2013 playing his live and odd flavored show all over the world, I haven't experienced his live shows until he was invited to play a Boiler Room set. Nigeria What? is one of the very few tech-house friendly tracks that I have heard from Debruit, a uniquely awesome track that really lends it self to mashing up during live sets as well.

Artist : Gabriel Ananda
Track : Miracle Whop
Label : Platzhirsch Schallplatten
Release Date : 22 / 05 / 2006

The oldest track to be featured this month. Miracle Whop is so well layered, every time I hear it I pick up on a new element within the track. I would love to produce some thing like this my self (watch this space).

The German based Grabriel Ananda is an old hand in the techno music scene. His tracks has aged very well indeed, the progression is sublime and he sound design is second to none. This record is techno at its best, minimal yet industrial and full of audible sonic treats, I would recommend this album over Daniel Avery any day. Trust me, check it out.

And that concludes the first edition of Hot Tunes, hope you all enjoyed the sounds. I will try to feature a few more current releases next month. 

Much love... Nate
