Moguai had a phenominal start of 2012 with his critically acclaimed ‘MPIRE’. The self titled, second track from Mpire topped the charts of beatport and forced people to take notice. Already a quarter of the way into the year, Moguai has given us a preview of a much euphoric update for the original track ‘Lyme’. The German producer packs a much welcoming big room feel while still keeping with the breaks and dynamics from the original with two exception: LONGER BUILD UPS and HEAVIER DROPS. And for that we thank you Moguai. Stream a preview of the track below.

As if that wasn’t enough, there is still one more thing. For most of last year during his live shows, Moguai has put in rotation a sexy bootleg remix combining Tiga’s You Gonna Want Me and “Knas” from Steve Angello.

With our new layout, we are gonna do a better job at reorganizing all the genres. We never really had a Drum&Bass category but that will soon change, we promise. To kick things out we have one of the most exhilarating drum&bass remixes of the brand new track from Flux Pavilion “Daydreamer”. Danny Byrd is producer/musician from Bath in the South West of England. The facelift he gave to Daydreamer was much more than just cosmetic. The elevated quick passed with the original vocals from Example really make this a strong contender against the original itself.

Can’t say we are a huge fan of mashups, and quite honestly we love Avicii and Levels but we think it is time to move on now. However we couldnt help ourselves going “WTF IS THIS” after listening to Cyptex latest reglitched, supercharged mashups. Perhaps not a song you can dance to, yet worth listening because it is one of the trippiest things we have heard in 2012. Pitch playing, glitch play, BPM play and while at times completely chaotic, it still feel elegant and fluid. Try to stomach it below:

The up and coming LA-based duo Electric Guest, generating hype for their bright harmonies and rock forward rhythm have just released debut LP, Mondo. With a rich production and gorgeous instrumentation on tracks like “Awake” and “American Daydream”, it is hard to believe that we are still talking about two people. The two tracks we have decided to feature below are “Awake”, a funky and lively song with a lot of soul. And “American Daydream”, a much laid back but still sensational track with retro vocals and a prominent use of melodic bass guitar. Enjoy and please support the release here.
Dntel, better recognized as Jimmy Tamborello, (who is better recognize as beatmaking half of Postal Service) will be releasing his long awaited Aimlessness EP this summer on 6/5 through Pampa Records. This will be his second single release, with the previously blogged ‘Bright Night‘ being the first. “Still” feels similar from some of his previous work with mystique and hazy over layered sounds to produce a cacophony of elegant chaos.
Aimlessness is out 6/5 on Pampa Records.
Kid Cudi is back. And not the guy that attempted to go the rock route with WZRD. “Dennis, Hook Me Up With Some Of That Whiskey” is a self produced tracks that takes inspiration from most of his earlier work yet still showing us maturity in both lyricism and production.

Savoy, the Brooklyn-based electro trio have turned the original “When the Night Falls” by Chromeo into a fast and gritty electro-house remix. From the use of the Dave 1′s vocals intertwined with the a renewed progressive bassline, Savoy yet again leaves us wanting more. Please check more of their song son their soundcloud.
