Premiere: Auggië – Distrikcat [Borders Of Light]

Auggië delivers a stunning 4-tracker EP on Toto Chiavetta’s label ‘Borders Of Lights’. Auggië is a DJ and producer from Milan. With his eclectic and experimental approach, he creates warm harmonies using his first love, the guitar, and other analog instruments. He also implements metallic and acid high-pitched sounds to diversify and keep things fresh. His curiosity leads him to the search for continuous palpable emotions to transmit, which he certainly does on this EP for Borders Of Light. The track we are premiering today ‘Distrikcat’ has been highly supported by Trikk. Label boss Toto also included it in his stream for ... Read more

DHA FM Mix #461 by Marcel Vogel

Marcel Vogel is a German DJ and Producer living in Amsterdam, widely known for his labels Lumberjacks in Hell and Intimate Friends. You will no doubt have spotted Marcel Vogel’s handiwork steering the good ship Lumberjacks In Hell, or perhaps even his choice edits under the Em Vee banner, but increasingly the Dutch artist is turning to his own name to get some fine records laid down outside the realms of pure edit territory. Amsterdam’s Lumberjacks In Hell celebrates its 10th anniversary with a star-studded, heat packing 2×12″ compilation, that sits amongst the highpoints of the label’s releases over the ... Read more

Premiere: Psycho Radio feat. Klin – Screen Sinking (Adana Twins Remix) [Multinotes]

Psycho Radio was born in 2002 from an idea of the Italian producer Daniele Tignino with the support of several collaborators such as Pat Legato, Da Lukas and british singer LC Anderson. They burst in the music scene with an innovative sound that took inspiration from the 80’s new wave, funk and electro grooves. Tracks like ‘In The Underground’ (record of the year in UK 2002) and ‘Right Stuff’ brought a breath of fresh air in those years, and they still sound very actual today. Psycho Radio is back and brings his “dark punk discoish” mood to Multinotes by presenting ... Read more

Premiere: Santiago Garcia & Upercent – Sowell [Interpret]

Buenos Aires’ Santiago Garcia joins Upercent in his native Valencia, candidly integrating their own unique approaches to music and harmonizing artistries to render an unpretentious glimpse into the process of building a home, both literally and figuratively. Unveiling the birth of their new label, Interpret, the talented DJ/Producers draw on their personal and artistic connection, versatility on and off decks, and penchant for metaphors to foster a safe space for interpretation and canvas for symphonic expression. INT01 is storytelling in its fine, sincere, and genuine form, segmented into four distinctive and equally compelling tracks that naturally occurred upon graciously pushing ... Read more

Premiere: Yes Father – 1969 (Dino Lenny & Francesco Farfa Mix) [Roam Recordings]

After the success of ‘Everything You Say’, Yes Father (aka Dino Lenny and Francesco Farfa) returns to Roam Recordings with another big single ‘1969’, backed by Italian cohorts Marvin & Guy. The Dino Lenny and Francesco Farfa mix is a full powered belter with a melodic twist and turns to balance out the gritty interludes through the track. The Marvin & Guy Dub mix is a trippy take on the original with hypnotic synths and congas floating over a quirky bassline. Yes Father – 1969 EP [Roam Recordings] 1. Yes Father – 1969 (Dino Lenny & Francesco Farfa Mix) 2. ... Read more

Premiere: Rose Ringed – What We Do For Love [Closed Eyes Recordings]

Rose Ringed’s 10th EP on Closed Eyes Recordings named “from the Heart” tells a personal story. This EP is all about love and its infinite scope of feelings it triggers. The first track named: What We Do For Love starts out with a dreamy 8 chord progression followed by classic Rose Ringed 16th note baseline and hi-hats. The track is all about the huge break which builds down slowly and then explodes into an ’80s like melody which makes you feel both euphoric and nostalgic at the same time. This is some fist-pumping main stage material and also Rose’s favorite track ... Read more
