This standout from Trentemoller’s 'Lost Reworks EP' features a trippy and intense psychedelic interpretation from Pablo Clements and James Griffiths (UNKLE, Psychonauts etc). It's glam, but not as we know it!
The Prophet drops another fresh single on his Scantraxx label with this great simple vocal running throughout it, steering away from the big melodies or the rawstyle distorted sounds which are common on most hardstyle releases at the moment to produce this great club banger track. Written for club dancefloors rather than the big festival arenas, this is sure to pick up plays right across the board and adds a good bit of variety into DJ sets.
With a version apiece, there’s good artistic definition between Ruben and Louis Tan’s mixes. In both forms ‘Fernweh’ (Deutsch for ‘wanderlust’ apparently) is a suitably journeying, thermal trancer. Louis is the sleek melodic model; all phased pads, undulant bass and twinkling piano. With its timbale-like percussion, Ruben’s is looser and has more beachfront atmosphere. Which one is the DJ spinning? You probably only need check your watch.
Durag Dynasty's Tristate hooks up with the magnificent Rasco to drop this slow-burning banger, replete with lush '70s soul samples and a gorgeous beat, Tri & Ras letting the heat simmer nicely, with sharp rhymes and stream-of-aggravation anger. DD's next production project is called 'Gold Diggers'; by the sounds of this, it'll be an essential this autumn.
