You know I love me some Floating Points!
This right here is "Nespole", a song taken from the brand new Floating Points album "Elaenia", to be released on November 6th 2015. Beautiful sounds, sans beat, complimented by an amazing contemporary dance choreography.
Jazzuelle, originally from Cape Town, South Africa is currently making waves which have reached international shores by way of his recent DJ sets at Sonar and his releases on Atjazz Record Company, Phat Elephant, DeepStitched and just recently Germany's Get Physical record label. Deepavenue, self described as an online documentation of electronic and dance music culture in South Africa, caught up with him to find out about his motivation, background and more.
DJ Mag from the UK created a documentary series on game changing tracks in the industry, some of the most played tracks ever, tracks which changed how dance music is today.
One of these tunes is indisputable "I'll House You" by the Jungle Brothers, based on the "Can You Party" House Music hit by Royal House aka Todd Terry. Watch this video to learn more about Todd Terry's musical background, his early days of DJing and the creation of one of my favorite House Music Classics.
When I first received the promo for this 6 track release by Irish producer The Cyclist, I wasn't sure if the track "Hot House" was meant to sound the way it does. It comes with heavy background noise, a lot of distortion and a 'distant' feel.
However, after I kept listening it became clear everything in this production happens on purpose. The 'technique' if you will, transported me into a time of oversaturated tape recordings of unforgettable underground parties and club nights.
