Mad Villians ‘Hit The Club’ from 27/02/17 with their new EP on Regression Sessions. Starting with the title track, a dreamy gangster style bass house bomb with cool breakbeats and synths that will cause major vibrations in the near vicinity. DJOKO, a producer we just love to hear, gets hold of that title track and kicks the drum out of dem’ drums!!!! The additional track ‘West Coast’ is a weighty chugger with cool vox and swirly head bending sounds to throw your hands up and strut!!!
Magma, the stuff you find in volcanoes or this bangin’ new EP by Copy Paste Soul on Detone featuring the volcanic eruption that is the title track with synths that push their way up through the earth like molten rocks. ‘State Of Mind’ also sounds like the title suggests with a melody like those thoughts you have at night time, racing, mystical, deep and pleasurable. What else would you expect from these fine exponents of quality Techno!!!
Put on your ravin’ shoes and jack to Theo Nasa’s ‘Gloves & Glowsticks EP’ coming to Alien Sound Trax on 6/3/17. Everything from the smiley face cover art of this release to the tunes themselves holds instant appeal with us oldskool lovin’ folks here at Free Breaks Blog!!!
The title track revives the analogue sound of the late 80s acid house sound with a fresh 2017 Tech House re-imagining. Acid Kids pitch things down a touch for some meaty chunk underground groovin’
‘Jack & Jill Had Acid’ gets really dark and demented, a twisted take on the sound of Trax Records, Armando and the acid pioneers of 88′
‘Nostalgia 4 Life’ hops into a ride down the M6 for some UK warehouse rave action complete with proto-breakbeat hardcore/jungle tekno breaks and spooky synths. The gloves and glowsticks are back out of the box again ‘cos you just can’t keep a good thing down as Theo Nasa clearly attests to!!
Somebody very kindly put this massive 7GB collection of Breaks up for a LTD DL. You can read the original Facebook post below and you might be interested in the subscription service they are starting up, take a look and grab the goodies before its too late!!!
Casey Spillman, Harry Raynor, and Max Casebolt make production outfit Allatura. They debut on Disco Kicks with two impressive instaurations of the 4×4 House music variety. ‘No Concern’ chugs along a cogent path of stripped back drums and burrowing bass. ‘With You’ remoulds the US/UK Garage sound into something new and highly palatable to the ears. Promising starts that will surely continue
A techno advisory from Elia De Biase who urges us to ‘Dress Casual.’ Actually, this is a Techno slammer on the Phunk Traxx imprint and it comes with a chunkier than a Kit Kat Chunky remix by Drumbeat. More pounding drums for your ears!!!
Dirtybird present a fresh remix album of Justin Martin ‘Hello Clouds’ A crack team of artist get hold of the massive tracks on this LP. Walker & Royce put a squelchy stamp on ‘The Feels’ while Brummie badman Low Steppa puts his signature Bass/House/Grage shine on it. Ardalan manipulates the 303 box into exciting new shapes for his remix of ‘Hello Clouds’ whereas Jakwob goes for a UK Bass House take with touches of Future R&B and even a bit of Techno with his rework. Redlight gives ‘Wet Cat’ a dark edged bubbling rinse out before we move on to Kyle Watson’s deep n’ durty refix of ‘Odyssey.’
‘Midnight’ gets the quirky treatment from Doorly and a busy and uplifting going over by Soul Clap. Lenny Kiser delivers a bass rich weapon of remix for ‘Rabbit Hole’ veering into breaks territory. Little By Little go for a bit of Defected style House stylings on their ‘Rabbit Hole’ remix. This leaves us with two remixes of ‘Back To The Jungle’, one, a DnB reworking of exceptional classiness by DJ Marky with a little nod to Gat Decor ‘Passion’ and Chris Lorenzo’s hybrid Breaks/Bass/House monster of a remix. Need to have tunes right here!!!
Darshan Jesrani takes House music back to its origins with just over 7min of lush string arrangements, spatial grooves and 80’s Electro inspired keys. ‘Mirror Test’ sounds like a heartfelt tribute to the pioneers of the sound. Between the subtle sounds and minimal design of this track is the sound of hope, positivity and rebirth. Listening to this track, we are reminded of simpler, happier times. ‘Replace Yourself’ moves further along the House music timeline to the early 90s and its transformative effects. A breezy disco/soul style drifts in and out of the uptempo beats akin to that period of time but sounding 110% in 2017. Much needed fresh air from Darshan Jesrani, breath it in deep!!!
