[STREAM] Jimmy Edgar – Sex Drive (Scuba’s Dub of Doom)

Property of Gotta Dance Dirty

Monday will see the release of a two-pack of Hotflush goodies that have been staples in the label boss’ set for the past few months. One of these top tunes is Scuba‘s remix of Detroit-based Jimmy Edgar‘s ‘Sex Drive,’ and it is phenomenal. Starting out seemingly harmless, ‘Sex Drive’ builds for the first minute before you’re taken deep down into bouncy darkness. No lasers or flashes required for this one, just keep the lights down and the subs up. Pick it up along with SCB’s remix of Scuba’s ‘Hardbody’ on the 22nd. √+

Clement Meyer’s Got The Curse

Those not familiar with Parisian label Get The Curse would do well to get themselves acquainted. Of course, with tastemakers like Claude VonStroke and Ivan Smagghe singing the imprint’s praises, it’d be difficult not to take notice.

“Go to the past, but look to the future, don’t get bogged down in the present,” reads the tagline of Get The Curse, a nod to forward-thinking electronica that’s firmly rooted in techno’s foundations. Label boss Clement Meyer brings this vision of the dancefloor to his productions as well, with hypnotizingly understated electro elements that snake around vocal stutters and organ-shifting basslines. Try a taste of Meyer’s drugged-up disco with Hi Tek Snuff and his remix of More Animals, and head to the label’s SoundCloud to Get The Curse.

Tale Of Us Bring Us To Another Earth

After much anticipation, Berlin-based duo Tale of Us have released their newest masterpiece, the Another Earth EP on Richie Hawtin’s Min_s Records. Known for their deeply moving, psychedelic space-funk sound, each record tells a new tale.

Another Earth and Discochord venture into futuristic techno, while Lost City tells a resonant story of mystery and discovery. Said to be one of the stand out tracks of this year’s Miami Music Week, Another Earth’s outer-space symphony progresses through a series of distorted bass synths and the main piano D♯maj chord, each sequence more galactic than the last. A menacing organ, concise drum kick, and bevy of instrumental effects will make your temporal lobe pulsate. Discochord is darker and more tech sounding than earlier Tale of Us work; the deep bassline carries a series of drums and instrumental synth snippets, highlighting the A♯maj guitar chord on this terrestrial tune.

A gravitational shift takes place with Lost City, its deep bassline accompanied by oscillating guitar chords and a heavy kick. This track takes listeners on a journey of mystery, discovering new cosmic chords around every corner. All three tracks, very different in construction, magnetize to each other for another solid work by Italian duo Tale of Us. Pick up this EP now on Beatport and M_nus Records.

Exclusive: Nom De Strip Cloudy Mix

Nom De Strip is a name that has been floating around for a few years in the electro game with signings on labels like Rising and Dim Mak, but he recently has enjoyed a big boost in popularity from two consecutive EPs on mau5trapClouds Vol. 1 and Vol. 2. The EPs have shown a decidedly techy approach to the sound of electro by the man otherwise known as Chris Elliott, and it is certainly suiting him well, with recent support by the likes of Tiesto and David Guetta.

Snares and short synth stabs abound in this frenetic mix, with tracks from the likes of Peo de Pitte, Hot Mouth, Robbie Rivera, and of course, a few new Nom De Strip bangers. Like what you hear?

The Club – Week 46

This week on The Club I've got a hefty dose of techno to accompany the usual deep house that I've been sharing with you over the last few months. It seems the more I dig into a genre, the farther away I move from what The Club was originally founded on, which was big room progressive & electro house. Colin & Steph have taken over the task of bringing you more big room but every few weeks I'll come fully prepared with selections from the deeper shades of dance music and hopefully a new mix each time. Today's mix features 40 tracks and 2 hours of deep house into techno from the best of this week and Week 43. Thanks again to Julia Martineau, Dustin Kennedy & James Ledger for helping out on this week's post.


Jupiter Jazz
Booty Jazz
Ellum Audio 2013-03-11
ELL011


Recently underground heavyweights Maceo Plex and Danny Daze joined forces for Ellum Audio and this week released their first EP under the alias Jupiter Jazz, fittingly named "Booty Jazz". With this inaugural EP following up from their successful remix for Switchbox's "Pirates Poetry" earlier this year, the release is simple - three tracks and no remixes and is exactly what you would expect from producers of this calibre. The highlight of the record, "Technology" oozes trippy universal sounds that have been ingeniously integrated with typical Maceo Plex vocoders and Danny Daze basslines. The subtle vocals and perfect percussions really compliment each producer's own element and makes. This EP is up there with the best so far this year and will undoubtedly top charts and stir excitement amongst the deep house community. Grab your copy via Beatport if you're digging the vibes; it's Booty Jazz!

Dusky
Nobody Else EP
Aus Music 2013-03-18
AUS1345


Straight after being premiered in their recent Essential Mix, Dusky return to Will Saul's Aus Music imprint for the release of their Nobody Else EP. Available from March 18, the release is straight up 4/4 house. With beautiful vocal loops and deep chunky bass throughout, it's clear the British duo is coming up big time for their first transmission of 2013. With 2012 bringing them releases on School, Simple, Leofah and even Maya Jane Coles' Dogmatik Records, this four-track EP, complete with that signature low-slung garage percussion, long breakdowns and perfect vocal stabs is everything you want from a deep house record and has every ingredient to get a dancefloor moving. Although "Atone" smashes out tech-house percussion, the other three tracks on the release are full of those deep Dusky chords.

Fantasy (Kele Remix)
MS MR


I received a few emails recently about tracks featuring two of my all time favourites; Futurecop! (We premiered the Lifelike remix of their latest single today) & Kele from Bloc Party, who's recent remix for MS MR is a full on bass driven deep house track with that round deep bass that Kele, like many others at the moment, have taken a fondness for. Admittedly I haven't been really keeping up to date with Bloc Party but when Kele first split off from the group his sound wasn't too far off from the original, however obviously more dance infused. This latest remix takes him into another realm altogether, deep and dark and hinting at what might lie ahead for the UK vocalist/lead guitarist turned producer.

Copy Paste Soul
Look At Me
Exploited 2013-02-18
EXPDIGITAL30


Thanks to several past EPs, London-based producer Copy Paste Soul gained recognition in 2012 and the support of notable artists such as Homework and Tensnake. Recently signed to Berlin label Exploited, we can expect great things to come from this young producer, whose release "Look at Me" was premiered on BBC Radio 1 by Annie Mac and Skream & Benga. "Look at Me" is upbeat deep house with a grimier touch of wobble to it, and a sound reminiscent of fellow UK producers Disclosure. Break beat and vintage chord give this track an old school feel that is highly danceable.

Various Artists
Azari & III Remixed
Dim Mak / Turbo 2013-02-25
TURBODX011


With the release of their debut album last year, Toronto's eccentric "house band" Azari & III exploded onto the underground scene. With the likes of Jamie Jones, Disclosure, Tiga and Maceo Plex remixing their tracks, this compilation album carries more weight than most. On this edition of The Club, we've included a few of our favourite remixes, but strongly suggest you give the rest a listen as well. Maceo Plex's version of "Manic" has a slower, bass heavy tempo and is much smoother than the original upbeat version. With a grumbling and distorted intone in the background, and reverberating vocals in the foreground, this remix has an undeniably deep house sound. The lesser known track "Indigo" takes on a more light-hearted feel that is jauntier than its original, thanks to a remix by Voyeur. Finally, Locked Groove's take on "Manhooker" gives a far more techno feel to the original track, dominated by singer Starving Yet Full's sultry vocals. Whatever your preferences are, this album's diversity in sound can be truly appreciated by anyone who loves electronic music.

Adana Twins
Strange
Exploited 2013-02-25
EXPDIGITAL31


It can be a challenge for producers who attempt to morph a classic rock hit into an electronic remix worthy of a spot on dance floors, as expectations are oftentimes kept higher. The bonus track, “Strange”, by Adana Twins is a cover of The Doors’ “People Are Strange” we think deserves a chance to sooth your musical curiosities. The Hamburg duo consisting of Take It Easy and Friso (surprisingly they aren’t related) have been catching a lot of attention these days and their hot streak continues with their Everyday EP featuring the cover track we speak of. Soothing and eerie, it’s a beautiful track laid down with piano that’s perfect for bringing the crowd’s energy downwards as the night comes to a close.

Butch
Highbeams EP
Hot Creations 2013-02-25
HOTC030


Thank the house gods that Hot Creation exists. Honestly, it’s hard to find a bad track on that record label, as it’s constantly spewing out quality deep house and continues to sign on outstanding artists such as Benoit & Sergio, Digitaria, Danny Daze, Miguel Cambell, and Infinity Ink. The PBR Streetgang remix of Butch’s “Faith” is another one of those songs the label can add to its list of delectable hits. Appearing on the Highbeams EP, the track features hypnotic vocals by Benjamin Franklin that have been chopped from the original and a strong reverberating base line. Inspired by Radiohead’s “My Iron Lung”, this track along with the original on this EP attest once again to the creativeness that makes this label so damn good! Throw in the Maceo Plex & Miguel Campbell remixes and you've got one of the biggest releases this year.

1605 Label Night @ Sound Academy featuring Umek, Pleasurekraft and Stefano Noferini [Event Preview]

Earmilk is excited to present the 1605 Label Night, featuring sets from tech house masterminds Umek, Pleasurekraft and Stefano Noferini, this Friday, March 8 at Sound Academy. With a total of 18 DJs on the bill, including some of Toronto's top local talent, this is one night you don't want to miss out on. Here's a little teaser video to get you excited for Friday's festivities.

Having spent decades now at the top of the techno charts, Slovenia's Umek is a tech house legend, and one of the pioneers of the electronic music scene in the country. He is also arguably one of the hardest working DJs in the world, playing more than 100 shows a year. Though he travels constantly, Umek's involvement in the arty 1605 Label has helped hundreds of talented young artists find a place in the global electronic music scene, as the label has become a world renowned resource for any club DJ. 

Pleasurekraft is the self-proclaimed hedonist duo of Kaveh and Kalle, hailing from Washington DC and Stockholm, Sweden. They describe themselves as "a simultaneously visceral and cerebral experience induced only by the seductive, deep, groove heavy, underground techno inspired music that you hear the kids listening to", but you might just have to find out for yourself. 

Italy's Stefano Noferini is one of the nation's most respected producers, and his years of experience have cemented his status at the top of the dance music food chain. Stefano has the ability to tap right into our primal need to dance, and while you may miss the subtle expertise filling your mind with proper house grooves, but your body will hail the call, understand, and you’ll be dancing like you’ve never danced before.

With Umek, Pleasurekraft, Stefano Noferini and supporting acts SubplotSam Haze and Earmilk's own Jamie Gone among others, this is definitely going to be a night you don't want to miss. Tickets are $35.00 and you can email events@earmilk.com to arrange to pickup a hard ticket and save the online servicing fees. See you there!
