'King Tide' - NEED FOR MIRRORS - Horizons

"'King Tide' has been a work-in-progress, but a staple for most of my sets over the last six months. A ragga vocal, deep pads and deadline-inspired breaks, make it a stand-out groove."

Sticky Fingers (Lane 8 Remix) - Above & Beyond feat Alex Vargas - Anjunadeep

Lane 8 completely remakes Above & Beyond’s vocal trance anthem into a seductive deep house record with some gorgeous melodic flourishes. It’s perfect for those summer vibes, though some DJs might want to remove the questionable vocals altogether with a dub version. 

My Style - The Others - Dub Police

Alex from The Others has been in the game for a few years now. His first release on DP was in 2007 with a couple of great little tunes, 'Africa' and 'Ganja Man'. Now solo and still loyal to the Dub Police crew, his sound is a lot more polished, and this EP shows it. 'Voyager' keeps things bang up-to-date with trap influences that segue into a metallic dubstepper. 'Amazonia VIP' is all darkside swagger.

The Touch (Solaris Heights Remix) - Grum - Heartbeats

Scottish producer Grum continues the quick ascent of his second coming, recently turning in his debut entry for the Essential Mix pantheon. For the opening record he selected this rogue remix of his latest single from UK veteran Solaris Heights; and with its moody charms, it’s not hard to understand why. Building the remix around the bassline of the original, and then taking it a few notches deeper, our remixer summons a particular melancholy that packs a proper emotional punch. While he only teases the original’s vocal, he eventually lets the melody take centre stage, bringing it all together for a complete package that really resonates.
