LET'S GO OUTSIDE

Diynamic announces alternative residency at Cova Santa
Persistence of Vision - Rodriguez Jr - Mobilee

Olivier Mateu’s transition from hammering techno madness as one half of F-Com stalwarts The Youngsters into the slinky Rodriguez Jr has been a captivating one, never more so than on this subtly substantial four-tracker for Anja Schneider and Ralf Kollmann’s Mobilee, the home of his Latin alter-ego. 'Persistence of Vision' oozes class, all arpeggios and a dirty bassline to die for. The percussive 'Aldebaran' is a joy too, but opt for the rolling thunder of 'Mustang', its Detroit stabs rhythmic and roundly irresistible. Good show.

How You Love Me (Panda Remix) - 3LAU feat Bright Lights - Island

Tempers down the brash vocal EDM vibes of the original single from 3LAU and Bright Lights, exchanging it for some summery electro grooves. Smooth, silky and fun.  

'Little Brown Dog' - MO KOLOURS - One-Handed Music

"One of the most creative and individual performers on the scene at the moment. Every time Mo plays me a beat it makes me want to write, and seeing him perform live is a glimpse into how in the moment his creative process is."

 

'Bellamee' - CALIBRE - Signature
Calibre's 'Shelf Life 3' has so many classics on it, but this track has become 'The Tune' of my club night Soul in Motion at Basement. When it drops everybody's dancing.
