Sweet LA secure the summer house music anthem 2017 spot with ‘Freak’

‘Freak’ with vocals by Kayleigh Gibson bears all the hallmarks of a classic 90’s house track with the addition of the production skills that Sweet LA bring to all their tracks

Remixes come from DeFunkt bossman Jay Kay, Carl Price and the remix that gets our definitive thumbs up-once again Rhythm 4 Reason take that honour and rightly so with an uptempo oldskool rave fueled banger of a rework with a massive amen break breakdown, we’re freakin’ to this one!!!

NYR – 743

NYR - 743

 

Buy Here

NYR dusts off the pianos for some 90’s style House on De-Funkt Recordings. The original ‘743’ is a power packed slice of uplifting House, the kind that was a staple in the North of England in the good ‘ol days!!! Jay Kay toughens things up with a teasing lead and an overall deeper vibe. Stayin’ Low & Chinooq keep to the quality traits of the original adding some subtle filters and Future House esque stabs. Alphadisco gets chunky with the beats for a slamming disco influenced rerub. The vibes on this tune are off the scale!!!

We catch up with a recent batch of House & Techno bangers on De-Funkt Recordings/Traxx

 

Jay Kay & NYR – Choices

To quote the Futurama Police-Bot ‘Aawwwww Yeeeeeeaaaah!!!’. This Jay Kay & NYR track is supah saxxy, features tingling pianos, it has all the ingredients that make a perfect House anthem ‘Damn!!!’

 

Sound Out – Feeling Good EP

The Sound Out boys are back with a frsh round of their 90’s Rave infused House. ‘Feeling Good’ could make grown men cry with the euphoric pianos, rave breaks and hands in the air beats n’ bass, no need for drugs, just feel the rush!!!  Jay Kay offers a tougher techy take on the original.

‘Hot One’ is chuggin’ good with weighty stabs, slappin’ beats and hoover riffs. Subjektive rework ‘Hot One; into a Ibiza piano anthem. This is a hot one that will leave you feeling good fo sho!

 

Massïme – Dark Water EP

Thump Thump Thump, oh yes!!!! We love a bit of pumpin’ Techno here at the blog and pumpin’ Techno is what Massïme does with the ‘Dark Water EP’. We enjoy the dark funky stomp of ‘Vudu’ plus Hoodrat’s late night sojourn of a remix. ‘Dark Water’ is a bump in the night monster of a Techno track with a nice Drumcode style rerub by Ripkhord. Nice!!!

 

Jonas Blake – Control

Jonas Blake lays the sonic smackdown with Skapes style bassy roller ‘Control’. The excitement level gets further amped up with remixes from Jay Kay, Buka! & X Amp. Booom!!!

Time for a Sunday round of big beats!!! For your Funky Breaks fix Rory Hoy Vs Kitten & The Hip have just the medicine with ‘Dirty Little Secret’ on Super Hi Fi Recordings. The Fort Knox Five remix of ‘Dirty Little Secret’ is No1 on our playlist.

And for the lovers of House Music we have plenty of goodies for your ears. The rising talent that is Chris Sammarco dazzles us with a dreamy slice of oldskool US House on the Kidology imprint, it’s called ‘I’m A Fool’ and we love it!

Black Tantra ‘Big Trouble’ on the We Jack imprint is a delightful number with summery pianos and husky vocals. Tough Love have a suitably tough number out with big whomps and twisted vocals called ‘Friday Night’. Rhythm Staircase ‘Let’s Go Dancing’ out on motion has a mid 90’s Tribal House thing going on with a hypnotic thud, Garage style beats and hypnotic horns.

When Skapes is in the joint you know the ‘Music’s Pumpin’ and it most certainly is on this nice thumping roller. And to get the warehouse party heaving is Glen Coombs on the excellent Criminal Hype imprint with the essential ‘Warehouse Jams EP’ featuring remixes from Leon & Vibe Killers.

Next up on our playlist is another great warehouse jam, namely Eyes Everywhere‘s ‘FiveO’ taken from the ‘Family & Friends Vol One’ compilation on Desert Hearts Records. Then from the warehouse to the Garage we go with Kindred Soul ‘She’s Got It’, quality classic UKG sounds out on Highly Swung Records.

Simma Black have some of their signature chugging Tech House out, this time Maur take the reigns with their ‘Nocturnal Volume EP. W.H.A.T.A.M.I spread the feelgood grooves with some bright and warm piano house called ‘Domino’ out on MVMT. On a deeper tip is the wonderful sounds of Black Coffee with ‘Buya’ remixed by Loco Dice out on Get Physical.

On DeFunkt Recordings, Stayin’ Low & Chinooq go in with big euphoric pianos just the way we love ‘em. Check out their ‘Al Fresco EP’, it’s a gem.  Kryder whip up a ravey storm with a stomping remix of Bob Sinclair ‘Someone Who Needs Me’ on Spinin‘. Fat! Records provide some ‘Late Night Chill’ with their new compilation featuring material of a laid back nature from their back cat plus some fresh new tracks too.

Staying in more of a chilled mood we have Oxen Butcher with their melodic ‘Chills EP’. and from chilled to Funky, Karmic Power Records funks us up with FunkyOne‘s ‘Behind The Love’. No18 on our top picks playlist is a huge collab between Lupe Fuentes & Todd Terry ‘Jack In The House’ out via In The Loop.

Our House Music picks draw to a close with some choice cuts from Project Soul on Exhilarated Recordings, the sparkling soulful vocal house of ‘Question My Love’ is a must for your ears. Layout & Maverik‘s ‘Hot For You’ buzzes with electrifying synths and tough beats. It’s out now on Substance.  Hoodrat‘s ‘Come Back EP’ on DeFunkt Recordings features the gorgeous Garagey groove ‘Love Me Because’ featured at No21 in our playlist.

JONO dons some shiny Techno boots for the dark pumping ‘Knocking On The Sky EP’ on DualOrbit Recordings, get your stomp on for this one!!!  Raveskool Recordings have only gone and released the best NuSkool Hardcore track of 2016. You can thank the talented duo of Monks & Mort for the rushin’ ‘ardcore of ‘Don’t You Want’, it’s massive!

Another incredibly talented artist, one we have tons of love for is Motivbreaks. He has a new EP out on VIM containing two lush tracks that combine 92 Rave, Breaks, House & Garage all in his signature haunting yet euphoric style.

On the mellow mid-tempo bass tip is Eliphante whose ‘Catching On’ gives Major Lazer a serious run for the money when it comes to downright catchy sounds. The Art aud imprint has the second of it’s ‘Secret Rave EPs’ out featuring oldskool hardcore style tracks by Anybody Anytime,  G-23 + RivetMylerTextasy who clearly loves the classic video game ‘Streets Of Rage’

Gradual & Impak have a huge EP for free up on Technique Recording‘s Soundcloud page. Beat Assassins ‘Deny’ opens with a striking intro leading into organ driven vocal DnB plus a remix from DJ Rap!
