Mirror Maru (Melvv Bootleg)
There’s something truly enticing about this bootleg of Cashmere Cat’s “Mirror Maru” from Milwaukee producer, Melvv. We don’t see too many solid edits/remixes/bootlegs of Cashmere’s infectious productions, however, that changed when Melvv popped up into our lives. His take on “Mirror Maru” left us in a much happier, peppy state of mind; flooded with catchy beats, jivey piano melodies, and those oh so tasty Cashmere Cat elements, Melvv sends us to heaven and back in this bouncy bootleg. This might be the tune of the day, but we’ll leave that up to you to decide. Grab your free download and saturate your Saturday with some Cashmere and Melvv because we’re off to go hunt for more music to feed you.
Woah, ninjas. As we continue to dig a little bit deeper into the sea of Soundcloud, we came across a track we put off for the past 2 weeks. Boy are we not doing our job in getting you the latest and greatest tunes to stay ahead of the game. As we dust the cob webs off these wonderful tunes, we have one track from up and coming artist, Karen Harding, that has us stopped dead in our tracks. Harding’s one and only song on her Soundcloud, “Say Something”, is undeniably the most under-rated song to have show up on our radar. With the help of 19-year-old singer, songwriter, and producer, MNEK, Karent Harding steers this impeccable debut straight through the roof. We are highly impressed by both MNEK’s flawless craftsmanship along with Karen’s stunning voice – the sky is the limit for both of these talented artists and we can’t wait to see what’s next in line for them.
Love Blind (Original '4AM' Mix)
Hate it or love it, there’s no denying that deep house is here to stay, at least for the time being. The best we as bloggers can do is sift through the noise to find quality sounds for our wonderful readers. Matt Zanardo is an up-and-comer from the Great White North that has started to establish himself as a big room producer. Luckily for us, he is a jack of trades and decided to switch things up on us this round with “Love Blind”, a deep cut that, as he describes in the title, is perfect for all those 4AM activities whether it be driving, drinking, dancing, or spending some quality time with that special someone. Come find me later tonight after I field test this bad boy out.
After going through the endless amount of reposts on Soundcloud, we happened to come across a track from awhile back (completely forgetting how unbelievably perfect it was) and were reminded why we reposted this song in the first place. Los Angeles producer, Nico Stadi revived our news feed with easily one of the most hard-hitting House anthems to rattle the faults of Southern California. Stadi’s new tune, “Break” welcomes us with some heavy chopped synths (reverb on the side), a massive build full of fiery tension, and an aggressive breakdown that sends us straight into overdrive. So if you’re just now getting ready to hit the streets with your friends, then you better be blasting this as loud as your speakers can go because Nico Stadi is about to make you break a sweat.
Holding Hands (Original Mix) FREE DOWNLOAD
Let’s face it, ninjas. It’s Friday night. Over the course of the day, we’ve been posting all types of different songs, but what the majority of you out there want is house. You need a steady four-to-the-floor beat to get you up off your couch and into the dancefloor. Luckily for you, and us, KlangTherapeuten just dropped this gorgeous, string-based house tune, “Holding Hands”
Released just a day ago, “Holding Hands” showcases differentiating layers of string work, culminating into a whirlwind of dance pleasure. Created by this German DJ/Producer duo, this original tune has us wanting to drop the blogging act and just go dance. However, since we’re in the midst of a blogathon, we’ll happily opt for both.
Liberate (Lane 8 Remix)
Here’s where we stand: Eric Prydz is one of the best in the business. While we’ve always been fans of this Stockholm based musician, we were even more sold when we saw him close out Coachella ’13. We had spent an entire weekend hearing nothing but build up, drop, build up, drop, build up, drop, and hearing a progressive set from Mr. Prydz was nothing short of spectacular. In our honest opinion, his show was one of the best we saw all weekend long.
Taking on a track from this progressive house legend is nothing short of daunting, but we have faith in San Fran-based producer Lane 8. Having previously stolen our hearts with “I Got What You Want,” we were equally enammoured with his interpretation of “Liberate.”
This slow, encapsulating remix provides a delicious soundscape worthy of a fine glass of bourbon and a rare cigar. Ok, maybe that’s the old man in me talking. Regardless of which, the soundscape created by Lane 8 in this remix is second to none, focusing highly on a gorgeous chord progression and heavy claps from the cymbals.
Shake I Full Track Preview
The deep house genre plays a great part in the revival movement of house music. While some of the new deep house artists make their way to appeal to more people by converging to a progressive style of music, Australian trio Human Movement stay true to the subgenre. They create sounds that define deep house, and it’s no BS that they don’t sway away from mass appeal.
This debut track titled “Shake” will go down as one of their signature works. For all the true house lovers, Human Movement uses a minimal approach to the melody and formality of this song. The deeeeep bass, the futuristic synths and the classic house beats make this an exceptional example of a good club banger.
We are definitely putting this up and coming group to our to-watch-list. In hopes of getting more exposure in the US and the UK, Human Movement would become a dominant force in the house music scene in the near future.
