Corey James & David Pietras – Arlanda (Size)

Steve Angello‘s imprint ‘Size‘ is delivering 100% to music fans across the world. This new track from Liverpool born Corey James and Sweden’s latest talent David Pietras conjure up a delightful track called ‘Arlanda‘. This is in fact David Pietras‘ first release on Size and its amazing that it is the first Size release of 2018 too.

This time around on Size is an uplifting track with spectacular harmonies and melodies that blend effortlessly! The dramatic build up and tension it has gets the pulse racing, excited and happy.

The drop is crisp and fresh, with subtle, sweet synth chords which adds a bit of femininity to this harsh but beautiful track. It has a strong beat which flows so nicely throughout the entire track also, and so it really stands out a lot actually!

This beauty will be out on Size Records on the 26th January 2018!


Tobirush & Corg – Funky Skool (Eclypse Records)

Eclypse Records‘ is run by three Austrailian DJ and producers, Jason Forte and Feenixpawl, the latter releasing their breakthrough hit ‘In My Mind’ (Axtone). An eclectic Dance music label that has been around since April  2015 it has released a handful of stunning tracks such as ‘Ghosts’ (Feenixpawl), ‘Blue Sky’ and ‘Morning Sun’ (Corey James & Joakim Molitor), ‘Lyra’ (Paris & Simo) and so many more.

The labels first 2018 release is from Seoul based DJ/producer Tobirush and Italian based DJ/producer Corg called ‘Funky Skool‘. It is a very catchy Funky House track with Disco elements throughout. Infused with a danceable and 70s-esque melody, piano chords that are cute and bubbly, this is certainly a very happy track to brighten up ones day.

The whole track packs that little punch too and the percussion is to die for if you love your Funky House music from back in the day, this will take you back to Funky House school for sure!

Sebjak & David Pietras – Soleil (Release Records)

Third Party‘s imprint ‘Release Records‘ has been releasing outstanding music for a few years now and have done it again releasing its first track of 2018 with this one from the two Swedish producers Sebjak and David Pietras, the latter being a new talent to watch in my opinion.

It is infused with a Tribal beat with delicacy and charm. ‘Soleil’ (Meaning sun/sunlight in French) definitely lives up to its name. Oozing with Summery melodies that are graceful and flattering throughout it really makes ones ear feel happy and is a definate easy listening track at that.

The percussion is stunning also, flows greatly with the hypnotic beat. The same goes for everything in the track too, it all flows together nicely and the elegance really shines through the more you listen to it. Want a little bit of the Summer in your life during these cold Winter months, this is the track for you.

Ferreck Dawn ft. The Rise – Words (Spinnin Deep)

Something that really is going to be played through out winter/spring is this little beauty from Ferreck Dawn, the master of that sultry deep house we all know and love. Supported by Mike Williams, David Tort, Promise Land and many it really is something to dance to and support.

‘Words’ is a sultry deep house track with vocals coming from The Rise, this tracks oozes soul and passion that is really classy. The melody is very hypnotic and is really sweet but has plenty of the passion which is outstanding. A dark yet light techno percussion seeps through the melody and vocal and adds that smoking yet sultry beat that flows greatly with the track. The vocals provided by The Rise have that Massive Asttack or trip-hop vibe about them, but yet that could be the beat or melody too.

A truly remarkable deep house track that screams passion that will please any deep house or techno fanatic for sure.

Out on 11th Dec on Spinnin Deep.

Ejeca – Attack (EP) [UTTU]


Ejeca comes back with another EP containing some luscious techno infused beats and melodies that’ll make the heart sing.  Ejeca has been flawlessly releasing many EPs in 2017 and has gained huge air play from Pete Tong, B Traits, Mark Knight and many more!

The opening, self titled track is ‘Attack’. With a subtle vocal alongside a heart racing melody with a bizarre percussive beat that it really will send chills to the arms. It’s haunting yet light and is filled with gorgeous harmonies too!

‘Losty’ is a slightly more up-tempo track that has a beautiful, hard driven but edgy percussion and fluffy, rhythmic melodies intertwining with harmonic strings that are delicate and ear pleasing. Not your regular techno track.

We go dark with the third track, ‘Pintman’. This little beauty has something really special, with a sweet string melody and gorgeous synths intertwining with that  dark percussive beat and a heavy kick drum it really has something that makes it stand out for sure.

And lastly we come to Matrixxman’s remix of the delight that is Attack. It’s a lighter than the original with no vocals and it’s simple and heavenly. Up roaring melodies and a lot of reverb with fluttering filtering makes it something to listen to right now and then in the summer too.

Pre-order now on beatport! Out 8th Dec.

Promise Land – Papaya (Size)

Italian duo Promise Land have been around for a while (a little over a decade) releasing beast after beast on to labels like Spinnin, Doorn, Sosumi and once again onto Size! The biggest hits in my eyes they’ve possibly had the most success with are Memories Will Fade with Yves V (Smash The House) and X-Press (Doorn), both very catchy and still really fresh a few years on.

They come back onto Size with a real fruity, mellow track called Papaya. This track flows with elegance and class, a gorgeous short melody intertwining with a really nice foot tapping percussion also. The vocal is perfect too which flows effortlessly with the percussion and melody.

Its a fruity little beast that packs loads of tropical punch + spice. With it all, it still has a ton of class and elegance!

Out now Size!

Tim Mason – Aalto (Anjunabeats)

Tim Mason has been around for a fair amount of time now and has released beautiful music onto labels like Doorn, Size, Zerothree, Spinnin and now this marvellous circus like production has been released onto Anjunabeats!

With its glorious melody and those circus like chords and a strong yet magical, hypnotic drum beat, it sends those feels right to the ears. The break is soft and then dramatised with a drop that escalates to that gorgeous rhythmic drum beat!

Something truly unique and fresh with a modern yet old melody that revived from the ground.

Out now on Anjunabeats!

Melè – Atlantic (Edible)

The boy from the Wirral is back with a tribal house infused track that has a gorgeous 90s vibe to it!

Melè has been well supported by many DJs with his music being played from Annie Mac, Eats Everything, Kryder, Tough Love, Danny Howard, Solardo and many more. This track is also plenty of support from the mentioned above.

With a 90s drum beat at the beginning intertwines with subtle percussion that leads to a very tribal / Latino infused drop. The small vocal FX is well suited within the beat and chord progression. It has altogether, a really nice spring in its step and is truly flawless.

The catchiness of the melody with the heavy snare drum is classic and that the production is clean and crisp!

Out now on Edible records!

Kölsch – 1989 (Kompakt)

Danish born DJ and producer Kölsch has been creating gorgeous pieces of music for a very long time, and also gained his own residency on BBC Radio One every Thursday. Having already released two albums from specific years in life, it was right to release another, this time we to 1989, the last of his autobiographal albums. This is an album that shows light of his turbulent teen hood, turning these hard times into something happier.

Kölsch’s new album ‘1989’ is pure and enticing, 12 tracks to indulge in, it’s the perfect album to be filed under  easy listening. Album opens up with a short orchestral sound check which adds to this album’s pureness. ‘Serij‘ is the first track to be heard, it also features his ‘1983’ collaborator Gregor Schwellenbach. With its strong acid influence to the beautiful strings intertwined in this beauty, it is surely a work of art.
Grå‘ is next and this is more of subtle, hard kick driven track with a gorgeous melody and a catchy percussion flowing straight into some alluring chords that will make your heart tingle and flutter. The break is full of brass and unique melodies that are breathtaking.
In Bottles‘ is a fluttery, high percussive track that had gorgeous vocals from Aurora, lyrics are really satisfying, strings with that high percussive beat always shines throughout this track and it all flows perfectly together.

Grey‘, does it really need an introduction? It’s something that has been a staple to any Kölsch or techno fans worldwide. A truly remarkable, unforgettable beauty that I have no words for. It’s fluttery once again and beckons with enticing  strings, wind sounds it’s something that anyone needs to love and adore forever.
The happy, melodic, percussive beats stay with us in ‘Grau‘. This heavenly track has though grand melodies which are harmonic and also contains alluring and stunning strings once again. The intertwining melodies with the percussion is something unique and it’s perfect.
PUSH‘ is a harder techno gem on ‘1989‘, finesse is the key word for this track. With that really hard pushing, percussive beat and exquisite, harmonic chords it’s something that needs to be in a techno fans collection. It’s something that truly defines techno.
There must be something with Kolsch and the letter G, we next have ‘Gris‘ to indulge in. Cute, sassy, lighter track has major alluring strings and melodies that will put you in a trance. Percussion has more of a stronger edge to it than most of the tracks on the album, but it’s stunning, with a flow that is perfect. Very 90s.

We go to ‘14‘, this intriguing, mystery track is something that will make you think of how to perceive this track. With its piano chords and flowing beat into a little techno bleep and then strings, it’s a track that is heart warming, moving and touching. Truly unique.
Khairo‘, possibly one of my favorites on the album, sounds a little like ‘Grey’ but has its own identity and is a little deeper than its sister. With its 90s beat and repetitive string progression into a wow factor melody, its sister will be proud.
We have the 10th track up next called ‘YKPI‘. A light techno beauty with hypnotic chords and a percussive heart warming beat it separates itself from the album for sure. Gorgeous flowing melodies bring this track alive and its enticing charm throughout will be stuck in anyone’s heart.
Liath‘… It’s the sister to PUSH, with a more lighter, uplifting string melodies which you will hear a solo of in last few minutes of the track. It’s the intertwining of all the instruments used and that percussion is certainly well suited to this track for certain.

We now, very sadly end with ‘Goodbye‘, a 7 minute track that is the best goodbye you’ll listen to. A more angelic track this time, something that glistens and delights the ears of any of its listeners. The whole album comes together in this track which is perfection. Harmonic, soothing melody will make a heart flutter and a boy cry, it’s a heart breaker. Alien, space sounds make it very intergalactic also… Could be the message of the track that the Kolsch space ship is ready to depart back into heaven.

This album, is a MUST for any one who adores Techno, Tech House, House, Melodic tracks, Eric Prydz, Joris Voorn, Dusky and many more. An album that is perfect for anyone really who adores this music or Grey. The whole album is a heart warmer which will make you forget the world around you.

Sebjak – Fellas (Bibliotheque)

Sebjak and his label Bibliotheque have been raising the stakes high for a year already now, cooking up some really alluring and enticing tracks for everyone to adore. He has releases on other big labels such as Fonk, Sosumi, Doorn, Size and Ultra Records too. Sebjak comes back this beauty called ‘Fellas’ on his imprint, Bibliotheque records.

‘Fellas’ has such a bouncy percussion with charming vocals and catchy melody that’ll be something to tap your foot to, this is just something that is truly mesmerizing throughout. The whole track has stunning breaks and drops also, with the drops being somewhat very organic and minimalistic yet satisfying for the ears. Breaks are indeed very pulsating and have a touch of class to them.

It is something of a remarkable beauty that has the charming brass in between enticing melodies and very subtle tribal percussion too, its perfection and its melodies are just very unique and pure, I doubt there is anything out there right now that sounds like this. The bass is at a nice volume so you can hear everything in the track and that it’s not to overpowering, very pretty and sultry altogether really.
