Porsches

May 15th, 2015

PorshesSmokeSq

Its still very early days for Sydney electronic duo Porsches, who snuck out a tune very early this year titled HORSES which very quickly garnered some major acclaim from BBC Radio One, FBi Click, Triple J, Pilerats, Stoney Roads, In The Mix to name a few. The act soon found a home on visionary dance label Sweat It Out! leading HORSES to receive a huge remix package from french DJ/tastemakers Lifelike and Kulkid as well as local dance legends Yolanda Be Cool and Luke Million.

Porsches have recently teamed up with local beat maker Kilter on a new single WANT2, which will be launched live at Vivid Festival. Porsches live show is still currently under wraps, but beyond their June 19 Sydney “Undergound Party” Showcase the duo will be announcing their first tour, bringing the Porsches dancefloor with live band nation wide.

HORSES and the remix package is available now from all good music retailers through Sweat It Out!

WANT2 will be available early June through ETCETC, keep an ear out.

Motez – Vancouver EP

May 14th, 2015

I could try and sell you this EP by telling you how good Motez is. How he’s become a favorite of Disclosure. How he just toured with Destructo round the US.

I could probably get you really excited by telling you this EP is made for the clubs. How it doesn’t have any toplines looking for radio affection. How it’s kinda on the same tip as those initial tunes that slungshot him to the very top tier of house producers, attracting fans along the way such as Eats Everything, Claude Von Stroke, What So Not and Shadow Child.

It might help for you to know that this EP is tried and tested, and goes off. Or that based on the number of trainspotters when both tracks get played, they would be shazam hits (if shazam had any idea what the tracks were).

Or you could not believe any of the above, but follow Annie Mac‘s show and know that last Friday, Tryna Shake It got the worldwide premiere and both tracks got a huge thumbs up from Annie ( as well as early support from Tchami, Disclosure and Justin Martin).

I could drop a cool little bit of sentimental trivia and let you know that Tez added his own flavor with a nod to his original homeland with the use of some traditional Iraqi percussion on Tryna Shake It.

Or I could just be confident that when you take a listen to this EP, you gunna froth harder than a grommet out at 2 foot snapper on a school day (which means a lot).

Cassian – Takeover

May 14th, 2015

Let’s not beat around the bush here. Cassian is one of the BEST producers in the game. And I don’t mean on Sweat, or in Aus, i mean, worldwide, his productions stand up tall.

So, when he sends you something and says you could play it out, but it’s just a rough mix, u know it’s probably going to sound amazing. And work. That was Takeover a couple of months ago and the lucky few that got that email have been absolutely smashing it (and it’s been smashing it for them).

Add Everyday to this, add mastering and final mix and you have in your hands the next EP from Cassian. 2 absolute weapons that rock deep rooms as much as they do in bigger rooms.

With support on his last release from peeps such as Motez, Oliver Helden, Alex Metric, Sinden, Aston Shuffle and Go Freek, this one is def not going to lose fans.

Much love

Yolanda Be Cool & DCUP – Soul Makossa (Money)

May 14th, 2015

Ever drunk Baileys from a shoe? Ever played an African horn house tune after some deep tech?

Ever walked with the devil by the pale moonlight? Ever played 2015 Paradise Garage after some banging future bass?

Ever dated your exes mum? Ever played Cameroon future disco after some indie-nu-disco?

Yolanda Be Cool and DCUP have done half of these things, and each time, their new jammy jam, Soul Makossa (Money), has been the vehicle.

Whatever you want to call it, it’s the money shot and looks set to keep the boys on their roll after their last collab, Sugar Man, went platinum.

And remixes – round one comes with our best bud Sharam Jey who nails it as expected and say whaaat!!! someone call Chicago because Avon Stringer is in the house with their jacking tribute to all things windy city (we see u Mr Carter).

Much love

Tim Panalley – ‘Mixed Bag’ EP

May 14th, 2015

Remember Tim Panalley, the quiet achiever and the very popular Feels Good EP. Well, he’s back with another dose of the good times, this time with The Mixed Bag EP.

With support from peeps like Plastic Plates, Playmode and Jad & The Ladyboy, it’s easy to see why we so happy to have this man of few words but many skills, releasing tunes on our beloved Club Sweat. Tim teaches ableton so you better believe these tunes sound good. If you have a penchant for feel good funk, hot creations soul and moroder moments, this EP gotchu.

Get on them.

Much love

Motez drops ‘Vancouver’ EP

May 14th, 2015

Motez is to Adelaide like the Opera House is to Sydney: iconic.

There’s a reason he’s at the top of the house game in Australia (and lets face it, around the globe) – his shit makes you move. Like, seriously – when you can safely call legends like Disclosure, Justin Martin, Annie Mac, Shadow Child, Claude VonStroke & Eats Everything not only friends but fans you must be putting out some seriously quality output.

Enter the ‘Vancouver’ EP; the latest offering from Camp Motez™. It’s a two tracker that stands tall amongst the noise; a highly-focussed and expertly-executed club EP, unashamed to shake subwoofers all the way down to to 20Hz.

In addition, ‘Tez has announced tour dates across both Australia (in support of Alison Wonderland‘s warehouse project tour) & North America. Check the dates below, stream the track above and get your fill by grabbing it May 29.

Cassian continues to Takeover

May 14th, 2015

cassian

Cassian is simply one of the premiere producers in Australia.

There’s no other way to say it – the man knows his shit inside & out and bloody well gets it done, time and time again.

Double A-side release ‘Takeover’ ‘Everyday’ are no exception; they do everything they need to do to get a crowd shaking and they’re some of the best sounding tunes you’re going to hear all year.

Cassian’s back in full control – check them below and nab them here.

Terace – Let Me Know

May 7th, 2015

I just spent a week in the Maldives. Was nice. I tried really hard not to listen to dance music or answer emails. But as hard as I tried, the HOOK in this newie from Terace kept ringing in my ears.

“Let me know, Let me know how you like it baby.”

Makes me think it’s pretty damn hooky. Like really really hooky.

And when you have the production skills of these 2, with remix credits including Rüfüs, Flume & Chet Faker, Peking Duk, Motez and dj support from names such as Pete Tong, Tchami, What So Not, Golden Features and you got a hot lil hook like this one (shout out to KLP for the beautiful words), then i think we have a gem in our hands right here.

Big ups Terace.

And remixes. Black Butter homie Taiki Nulight gives us some wonky bass tech, Odd Mob give us some ethereal funk trap while Mike Metro, who just keeps getting better, drops us a tropical house jam that will sound equally as good in the club as by the pool.

We hope you dig “Let Me Know” by Terace as much as we do.

What So Not – Gemini

May 7th, 2015

It’s been a long while between drinks and the fans are thirsty.

What So Not (aka Flume & Emoh Instead, aka Chris & Harley, aka your m8s, aka Skrillex’s m8s, aka Coachella killas aka WSN) are finally back with the first track off their forthcoming EP, ‘Gemini’.

It happens to also be called ‘Gemini’, features the deluxe vocal stylings of George Maple and despite the star sign’s traditional dates has dropped in April for your listening pleasure.

Have a listen below, grab it for your sets here and see it in action as What So Not heads around the country on a triumphant homecoming tour – details here.

Jad & The Ladyboy – On Guard

May 7th, 2015

If you look up heavenly house in wikipedia, the first thing that comes up is a discussion of how velvety smooth, soothing, effortless, and expertly polished such music is. The second thing is an example. And that example be On Guard feat Blair De Milo by the angelic darling(s) of the Sunshine coast, Jad & The Ladyboy.

Or could it just be that when i listen to this celestial slice of holy house, I imagine myself on a clouded (see what i did there) dance floor, eyes closed, with angels fanning me as I sip a watermelon cocktail and receive a thousand head massages?

Either way, this is silk for zee ears.

But wait, Cut Snake, not satisfied with dropping Jungle Shrimp earlier in the week, drop what could be described as the Happy Jungle Shrimp mix, Vhyce goes for the late night crowd, Charles Murdoch gives Jad’s silk some rough electronica edges, Jawgoh gets a lil techno and we round this pack off with a very classy dub.

I could tell you about all the cool labels Jad releases on, like Exploited or Retrofit or Toy Tonics, or you could just put your trust in sweat, for heaven’s sake ;)
