Stle of Eye Website

I have been seeing a lot of remixes by Swedish producer Linus Eklow, aka. Style of Eye, in the blogosphere lately. Which normally would be great thing. However, I have been disappointed by the quality of them. So far, my favorite track by Style of Eye continues to be “Last Song” from the Duck Cover and Hold album released on Ultra. Enjoy

Style of Eye – Last Song

2Raumwohnung

The Berlin based duo started in the vivid club scene of Germanys new capital and consists of Tommi Eckart and Inga Humpe. I never knew about them until I heard this amazing remix by Solomun Vox that was on John Digweed’s Beatport chart. I couldn’t find this track anywhere for awhile. I don’t know why because it is great stuff. Love the vocals. One of my favorite tracks of the Summer. Enjoy

Kompakt, the label for electronic big whigs like SuperMayer, SuperPitcher, and my personal favorite, Gui Boratto, has just released their 9th mix compilation titled Total 9. The tracks on this album seem to bit slower than some of their past compilations. Too slow for the big dance floors. Why expect that in the first place? Kompakt always give off a darker vibe than other popular labels. But, isn’t that what separates them from the more dance floor friendly labels, such as, Ed Banger and Kitsune. Whether  Kompakt is better than the other two? That depends on what you are judging them on. If it is by the quality of their most recent mix compilations, then, Kompakt is clearly the winner. So, if you’re looking for an album to chill out to, this is it. Everyone needs some good night music to crash to every now and then. Peace & Beats

Maxime Dangles – Tulipa [Kompakt] Zshare

Great song. I used to listen to it when his EP was released earlier this year. Along with his other song “Firewire.”

 RATING: 4 STARS

 

Matias Aguayo – Minimal (DJ Koze Remix) [Kompakt] Zshare

The DJ Koze version of “Minimal” isn’t on Kompakt’s Total 9 but it is a stellar remix and I could easily see it becoming huge on the Indie dancefloors across the globe. Check it out. If you don’t like it I will be amazed. The vocals are insanely catchy.

 RATING: 5 STARS

Christian Burkhard – Doubledub [Raum…Musik]

German producer releases 2nd LP. “Doubledub” is the best track from Christian Burkhardt‘s LP, also titled, Doubledub. It starts off with a smooth rolling bass and only gets better once the looped and filtered vocals enter. It has a cool French feel to it. It reminds me of the Briggtte Bardot song “Contact”, which can be found on Booka Shade’s DJ Kicks album. Check it out.

Simian Mobile Disco – Sleep Deprevation (Simon Baker Remix) [Wichita Recordings]

SMD recently released Sample and Hold (Attack Sustain Decay Remixes). Continuing with a tech-house theme; I am posting the Simon Baker remix of “Sleep Deprivation.” The song doesn’t overwhelm you or progress too much, but has an enjoyable, and what I like to call upbeat minimal, feel to it. If you have the spare cash, I would also recommend purchasing Pinch’s dubstep remix of I believe. If you dig Pinch then give his album Underwater Dancehall a listen, or Burial’s Untrue.  

GENRE: TECH-HOUSE

Probspot – Stalker (Fine Taste Remix) [Curvve]

Fine Taste, a duo from the Netherlands, have only been working together for about two years apparently have already developed the skill to make good tunes. That is exactly what Fine Taste did with their remix of “Stalker.” I can’t wait to hear what kind of tunes they will be making two years from now.

GENRE: PROGRESSIVE HOUSE

  RATING: 4 STARS

Well I have noticed the music I have been posting recently has been in a new direction than what I have been posting in the past. Hopefully there are a growing number of German bloggers because I don’t think the majority of American electronic music fans fancy the minimal and Tech-House genres too much. German artist Stimming (Stimming is a jargon term for a particular form of stereotypy, a repetitive body movement (often done unconsciously) that self-stimulates one or more senses in a regulated manner. There are many theories about the function of stimming, and the reasons for its increased incidence in autistic people. For hyposensitive people, it may provide needed nervous system arousal, releasing beta-endorphins) has a some good Tech-House stuff out there. I haven’t heard it all but “Funkworm” should give you a nice taste of his work. Peace & Beats

Stimming – Funkworm [Diynamic] Zshare

Stimming – Getting Out of Something [Diynamic] Zshare

Booka Shade is one of my favorite groups of all time. I was so exited to finally see them live at Coachella. Its too bad they had to play so damn early. Especially when guys like Danny Tenaglia get two hour long sets right afterwards! I am sorry Tenaglia fans, but I just don’t think he is anything great. Booka Shade’s new song “Charlotte” is great however. I challenge everyone to name a song coming out this month that can beat it. Just like Movements and their DJ Kicks album, I am sure their upcoming album The Sun & The Neon Light (Get Physical) is going to be an instant classic as well. I think it is. You must check out this song! Peace & Beats

Jam out to “Charlotte” Here

Riva Starr‘s EP was released a little over two months ago, a long time to many bloggers, but not me. Scratch N’ Itch is still one of the freshest Electro/Tech-House albums I have heard in a long time. Listening to it has encouraged me to check out more from Southern Fried Records. Riva Starr is right up there with Dusty Kid when it comes to my favorite artists from the label. I still think Crookers are overrated though. Im exited for Starr’s new EP War Drums which is scheduled to drop in June. Peace & Beat
