Brooklyn based record label Let’s Play House gives way to their second solo EP of Fantastic man aka Mic Newman on the label. Heartbreaker EP packs a lot of soul, combined with the smooth, soft atmosphere this makes a slow-burning deep house drop that eases the mind.

Free Download: The Whispers – And The Beat Goes On (Ejeca’s Wonderbeat Edit)

This dancehall groover sparks instant happiness and gets you right into the Christmas spirit.

How was our 1 Year Anniversary ?

On the 13th of April we celebrated our 1 Year Anniversary together with UK Sounds in Studio K, Amsterdam. We invited Ejeca, Jonny Cade, Kezla and Oli Furness from the UK to make it an extra special night and Ejeca even did a special 4 hour set for us. 3 from the 4 names never played in Amsterdam or The Netherlands before. The crowd was very enthusiastic and people repeatedly asked who ‘Ejeca’ was, as they loved his 4 hour set. A special night it certainly was and we wouldn’t be able to accomplish this party without the help from ... Read more

Review: Ejeca – Life in Flux

I doubt if there are many more UK house producers that understand the current needs of house lovers more than EJECA. Being at the top of his game, his ''Life In Flux'' EP is another one of his masterpieces. Starting of on the A side with the adequately named ''Jump'' party starter, EJECA makes it clear that energizing the dancefloor is one of his key features. But where most would suspect the other tracks to be of the same level, EJECA surprises with his other three tracks which have surprisingly calm vibe. First off there's ''Purnsley'' (a word I looked ... Read more
