Wax Worx- Party People EP

Wax Worx- Party People EP

If there are any active awards ceremonies for UK House labels in 2017, let us know because we want to nominate Swerve Digital. Why? because of 110% quality releases like this latest one from Wax Worx!

The title track to this EP blazes with electrifying old skool vocal samples and crisp sound design. ‘Schemin’ is bo no means a B Side, it’ every bit as good as the namesake of this EP, a blistering, frenetic tribal banger that heats up to radioactive levels.

Solo Tamas is a name we’re hearing for the first time and we are really impressed with their work. Solo does a great job of remixing ‘Party People’ into a deeper, darker framework with chilling 303 stabs. Fancy Inc & Hippocoon go for a pronounced rerub of ‘Party People’ with spatial riffs, thick weighty beats and lots of teasing of the lead hook. For bona fide lovers of Tech House, this EP is a crucial purchase and a perfect fit for your next mix.

We also have reputable and talented remixers, Craig Robinson & Martin Quadeli at hand to add variety and longevity. What we’re saying is.. this is another sterling outing on Swerve Digital, the underground House & Techno label that just keeps giving!!!

Swerve Digital Ibiza 2017 Sampler

Swerve Digital continue on the path of house music excellence with their Ibiza 2017 Sampler featuring first class tracks from Angelo Scalici and more

We open in style with Angelo Scalici’s ‘House Record’, expect big things from this funky/tech house track with an instant appeal not dissimilar to the classic Eddie Amador track of the same name.

GREG. ‘Solid Black’ just has it all, loads of really interesting sounds and super phat drums.

Jame Moorfield ‘The Opaque’ adds another welcome slice of funkiness to the Ibiza 2017 Sampler, one for the house heads who appreciate a great bassline

Lee Pearce‘s ‘Timed Out’ is deep and deeply addictive with a great build up of subtle elements, a sophisticated and tasteful track that rewards the listener even more as it progresses

Maxi Vega ‘Traumatized’ closes things out in a nice dark/progressive fashion, a track with that timeless euphoria perfect for switching up the mood or ending a set in emphatic, crowd pleasing fashion.

The Ibiza 2017 Sampler will be out on Swerve Digital from 18/08/17

Clouded Judgement – Countdown EP

Clouded Judgement - Countdown EP

Swerve Digital weaponises your Friday with Clouded Judgement’s new ‘Countdown EP’ The London duo bring their A game with three versatile and highly appealing Tech House productions.

The duo that brought you the massive ‘Give Us An E’ back in 2014 have been riding a wave of notoriety that has taken them to labels like Simma Red, Data Transmission’s Shanghaied, Freakin909 and countless more.Near 40 somethings like this blogger will recognise elements of a 91′ hardcore tune in ‘Give Us An E’, namely Skin Up’s ‘Blockbuster’ This strain of 90’s rave, Hip Hop, House & techno is a mainstay of the countless fierce and up-tempo productions in Clouded Judgement’s back cat.

The Countdown EP displays the diversity in this duo’s repertoire starting with the title track, a kind of ‘Klubhopping’ for 2017 with an intense and complex set of keys that dance across the slamming drums. ‘Maverick’ has a deep allure, a mysterious interplay of rumbling chords, spoken words and subtle single key stabs. ‘Small Step’ is the big euphoric climax of the EP with soaring chords and an oldskool feel accentuated by the 303s and timeless synths employed through out.

While many labels like to churn out the bangers but Swerve Digital releases are always exceptional. Here is another fine example of that adherence to high quality. One to add to the buy cart without delay.

Ben Read & Jacque Saravanté – Wanchu EP

Ben Read & Jacque Saravanté - Wanchu EP

The latest and hottest Tech House release from our favourite label, Swerve Digital comes from Ben Read & Jacque Saravanté. The ‘Wanchu EP’ features two fine tracks and remixes from  Lee Pearce & Simeon Belle.

‘Wanchu’ is a playful mix up of chopped vox, big drum builds and dreamy synths that go all in at the midpoint for a tidy chugger. This title track gets a remix from Lee Pearce who reminds us what a great sound he has crafted. A funky and rolling take on the original that get’s this blogger’s vote every time.

Next up is ‘Overdrive’, a tune this writer can’t get enough of. Those who like their drums tough and their House music with a Hip Hop feel and attitude will love ‘Overdrive’

More goodness awaits with the stunning Simeon Belle remix of ‘Overdrive.’ A nostalgic 90s style lead drives along this masterpiece of a refix that sits nicely between Tech House & techno. That’s another masterful release in the bag for Swerve Digital, be sure to get your copy.

Kwal- New York

Kwal- New York

Swerve Digital‘s latest free track comes from Kwal. ‘New York’ perfectly captures that bumping oldskool NYC House sound and will get you jackin’ wherever you are in the world

Kwal takes a brief interlude from their own Murk City Demos label to join Swerve Digital for a free tune. ‘New York’ has the feel of the ‘bumpin’ house’ sound made famous in the clubs of NYC during the mid-90s and currently enjoying a huge resurgence as House music grows by the day in regained popularity.

Regular readers know that this writer makes no secret about Swerve Digital being one of their favourite labels. The Swerve back catalogue of free and to buy releases is an enviable one for any aspiring new House music brand. Swerve has attracted some of the brightest and best producers to come on board for some truly incredible House & Techno output. Swerve also supports rising new talent, setting an example that really should be followed.

Incidentally, keen observers will note Kwal is from the windy city of Chicago, regarded as the birthplace of House music. He does a great job of capturing the more contemporary NYC House sound with this excellent track.

Jake Twell – Work EP

Jake Twell - Work EP

Jake Twell joins the ranks of one House/Techno’s best labels, we love the ‘Work EP’ on Swerve Digital and here’s why

While there is nothing wrong with the popular Tech House sound, it’s always nice when an artist digs deep to come up with something fresh which is what Jake Twell does with the ‘Work EP.’ 3 tracks driven by drums of  distinction and rhythmic vibrations that can be enjoyed at their fullest on a fortified and capable set of speakers.  Two major talents are on board for remixes, namely Rowen Clarke & Cause Of You and boy,  do they deliver!!!

Different drums but just as deadly, Jake Twell’s new EP more than amply ‘works’ for our ears!!!
