Premiere: Sam Shure & Cioz – Kamala Bani [Stil vor Talent]

A natural for stirring melodies, Berlin-based Sam Shure channels his all-around manifold array of talents into his new EP, Mirage, taken from his forthcoming debut album Laconia. “Mirage is a collaboration with my father who plays the Oud lines in it. I had the main groove of the track ready in my Berlin studio and felt like it needed some acoustic element. Kamala Bani was the first collaboration with amazing producer Cioz. We had the most fun working together in the studio and really enjoyed making the track. The track Encanto is for sure a nighttime track with a mystical atmosphere. ... Read more

Premiere: Portland – Expectations (Cellini Remix) [PIAS]

Cellini is a Belgian techno young gun who now serves up more of his genre-blurring, immersive sounds. He takes you on a journey through the deepest parts of the techno spectrum and translates infinite-depth into audible sounds right from the off here. Spine-tingling releases filled with musical character and storytelling emotions. He is an artist who has risen above the crowd in quick time, has his own night at Belgian techno temple Fuse and played four times at Tomorrowland (of which one is hosting his own stage and the other opening the well-known Afterlife stage). He has played all over from Beirut to Amsterdam and also ... Read more

Premiere: Kieran Apter – For Those Who Dream Big [Sol Eterno]

UK-based Kieran Apter graces Berlin’s up and coming Sol Eterno label with a wistful two-tracker ‘For Those Who Dream Big’, which is lush and percussion savvy, melodic and simply feelgood. SOL008 draws strength of character from Edinburgh’s Tweak Resident DJ’s adept balancing of organic and electronic sound structures, as well as his ability to translate inspiration into music that moves and grooves. The title track on the A-side jaunts from earthy to intergalactic and Apter makes that okay – marrying vocal samples that are, literally, from out of space, with the grounding and mundane essence of House. To reimagine that ... Read more

Premiere: Edu Imbernon & Los Suruba – Mehari (Fell Reis Remix) [Last Night On Earth]

Hyenah and Fell Reis then offer their hand remixing EP title track ‘Balear’ and ‘Mahari’ respectively, to perfectly complete the package. The Brazilian producer Fell Reis, from whom we’re premiering his remix, has been playing more and more gigs around ... Read more

Premiere: Akiine – Once (BAILE Remix) [Color Station]

The story behind it is great too, as “Once” is a single off of Akiine’s Red EP, which was released June 7th on Color Station. It was her first release she produced all on her own. BAILE (real name Reed Kackley) helped mix the EP and delivered this stunning remix. Akiine on her ‘Red EP’: “To me, Red means strength, creativity and believing in yourself.

Premiere: Drown – Mount Circeo [Just This]

Just This presents a trippy EP from Drown featuring remixes by Locked Groove and label regulars Hunter/Game. Drown‘s Mount Circeo EP is a spiraling dose of schizophrenic vocals and tense atmospherics. The title track is a somber march through an unnerving monologue and stripped back machinery, gradually building an alluring tension with little respite. For the remixes, Hunter/Game offers a rhythmic reshaping of the original, whilst Locked Groove lowers the framework into a murky, ominous sea of sustained dissonances and mutating acid. Mount Circeo EP is a dizzying package offering just the right doses of peculiarity and warmth. The Mount ... Read more

Premiere: Matchy – Irreversible [Katermukke]

Katermukke’s newest release comes from Matchy and Kostakis, who share a split EP named ‘Conjunction Anto’. The combination of the four pieces behaves like the four elements of fire, air, earth, and water. The fierce ‘Conjunction’ resembles fire with its drive, the trance flavoured synths and the pinch of acid. Air is represented by ‘Irreversible’ as the slowly in and out fading sounds and effects feel loose like the wind. ‘Joyce Stick’ is such a pulsating and choppy piece that it hits your ears like a severe earthquake showing what energy earth can carry on. Finally, ‘Anto’ is left, which has ... Read more

Premiere: Gardens of God – Zero One [Sodai]

Starting his career at Maceo Plex’s Ellum, Gardens of God his second mainstay is his own ‘SODAI’ imprint.  ‘El Zero’ is his upcoming EP on SODAI with three originals cuts, where earlier in 2019 we’ve seen releases from Gardens of God on one of Maceo’s most recent labels ‘Ellum Black‘ with his ‘Ken‘ EP and his ‘Rau‘ EP on SODAI. As tension and seduction overlap in “Zero One”, the sound and the build-up is just enough to suck the listener in before the slight shift of style in “Zero Two”. The track gains the rhythmic flow of its own and grapples ... Read more
