APRIL'S HIGH FIVE

EASTER IS UPON US! BUNNY HOP DOWN TO ONE OF THESE...
Swinger - Nick Karsten - Always Alive

The Always Alive stable explodes here with a record that’s a near-perfect fusion of trance energy, electro toughness and mainstage appeal. ‘Swinger’ launches quickly into its dirty electro bassline, which packs sufficient quantities of stomp and swagger, until its breakdown where Slovenian newcomer Nick Karsten teases out a synth riff that could have been plucked straight from an '80s Van Halen radio anthem. Questionable as this might sound, ‘Swinger’ is executed so well that its charms are impossible to resist. A versatile, crowd-pleasing stomper that comes frontloaded with fistpump.

I’m Your Boogie Man (Todd Terje Edit) - K.C. & The Sunshine Band - TK Disco

Scandisco prince Todd Terje gets to work on this classic, early disco nugget from ‘77 on the legendary TK Disco label.

Bodied EP - Gunkst - Terrorhythm

Never a label to churn out the same old stuff, Terrorhythm releases material that often exists on the fringes. Denver resident, Gunkst, personifies this perfectly, delivering a kinetic blend of classic American EDM with plenty of trap and footwork notes, but with blurs of dubstep and some nicely leftfield vibrations.

'Blockbuster Night Pt. 1' - RUN THE JEWELS - Mass Appeal Records

"This tune sounds like it’s up to no good.  Real rude beat and lyrics. Love it."
