Arches 'There's A Place' - STREAM debut single!
Having burst onto the scene with 2013’s pumping rework of Whitney Houston’s classic ‘It’s Okay’, Arches return in 2014 with their debut single ‘There’s A Place’, which is out 7th April via Columbia.

Fusing a forward thinking electronic sound with their love for old school house, Arches is Seba (Moonlight Matters) and Jochen (Sound of Stereo). Hailing from Belgium, the duo take inspiration from ‘New Beat’, a genre of dance music that was popularised throughout the late 80’s and originated from their homeland. ‘There’s A Place’ is an absorbing fusion of genres comprising an electronic soundscape built to shake dancefloors.

Arches live set-up includes the honey-coated vocals of Gustaph (Hercules And The Love Affair), who features on ‘There’s A Place’s’ B-side, ‘Move On’, a driving club anthem complete with euphoric drops and grooving bass melodies. Throw in remixes from Sinden and Russ Chimes and ‘There’s A Place’ is set to be an enthralling debut from newcomers Arches.

Forrest. – ‘Shiny Suit Man’ EP

Beverly Hills (Original Mix) - Forrest.
Since his first single ‘Masquerade’ dropped on vinyl just over a year ago, Forrest’s profile has continued to rise, with releases on Noir Music and Mobilee and forthcoming on Visionquest.

Forrest’s latest release, his debut for Midnight Vision, demonstrates his intense and versatile sound. The lead track ‘Shiny Suit Man’ blends hypnotic, cheeky vocals with dusty drums to create a roller, which sounds great both in the headphones and on the dancefloor. ‘My Factory’ continues on the deep tip and mixes vocal samples and modulating synth lines to create a smokey atmosphere. ‘My Factory’s’ slinky bassline drives the track along and will get any floor moving… ‘Beverly Hills’ teases us with an uncomplicated arrangement of slick house with sustained strings providing the tension and a great use of a female vocal sample. Closing the EP, new kids on the block Bodhi bring a garage swing to their remix of Shiny Suit Man kicks, their introduction of heavy syncopated 808’s paired with shuffling synths bring a new flavour to the EP.

Track List: 
 1. Shiny Suit Man 2. My Factory 3. Beverly Hills 4. Shiny Suit Man (Bodhi Remix)

Mike Mago ‘The Show’ (Stream)

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on July 25, 2013 by E.N.


Ministry of Sound has led the return of house music to the top of the UK singles charts in 2013 with hits from Duke Dumont feat A*M*E (No.1) and Chris Malinchak (No.2), and with summer finally here, Mike Mago’s ‘The Show’looks set to continue their run.

One of the biggest tracks of the moment, Mike Mago’s ‘The Show’ has become a staple for the likes of Zane Lowe, B Traits, Pete Tong, Toddla T and Danny Howard on Radio 1, with further support from 1Xtra’s Trevor Nelson, Cameo, DJ Target and Semtex, and Kiss’s Steve Smart.

‘The Show’s upscaled Chicago house vibe and sparkling piano break has ensured wide club appeal, with DJ’s such as Rudimental, The Magician, Crookers, Josh Wink, Tensnake and beyond making it an anthem across a thriving global club scene – from Ibiza to Croatia, and LA to Sydney.

Michiel Thomassen, aka Mike Mago, heads up Amsterdam-based BMKLTSCH RCRDS and has been curating what’s hot from Dutch soil and beyond for several years. His own tracks such as ‘The Power’ and ‘The Soul’ quickly brought him attention from the world’s leading blogs, which then became plays on specialist shows on Radio 1 and beyond.

Mago’s DJ schedule takes him all across Europe with shows in London, Amsterdam, Brussels, Dublin, Lyon, Hamburg and Ibiza, playing festivals like Tomorrowland and clubs like Ministry of Sound. He’s currently busy in the studio working on a string of remixes for A-list artists as well as more original music.

Remixes for ‘The Show’ come from Friction, Friend Within, Louis La Roche and Patrick Hagenaar.

Tensnake – Mainline(preview)

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , on September 29, 2012 by E.N.

The stunning new record from the Hamburg producer that’s getting everyone all hot under the collar.

Tensnake first burst onto the scene with the explosive, Technicolor eruption that was ‘Coma Cat’ a few years back; a record that was as inescapable as it was irrepressible. Since that point he’s given us a few teasers of what we know he’s capable of, but has been relatively quiet on the release front… until now.

‘Mainline’ is the latest record from Tensnake and once again bears all the marks of an uplifting club classic in the making. With his trademark, old-school production aesthetic and featuring the vocals of Syron – last seen appearing on Rudimnental’s underground hit ‘Spoon’ – ‘Mainline’ is the realisation of many months hard work in the studio and further proof that Tensnake is one of the most exciting producers of a generation.

Check out the teaser clip now and stay tuned for further news about its forthcoming release on Defected Records.

Lone “Galaxy Garden” on R&S Records,May 7th

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on February 23, 2012 by E.N.

Over the past couple of years, Manchester-based producer Lone (a.k.a. Matt Cutler) has become a fully fledged reinvention of his former self. Leaving behind the hip-hop seasoned abstraction and hazy beatscapes of his notable Ecstasy & Friends and Lemurian albums for a quicker-paced sound that draws on a much heavier Chicago house / Detroit Techno and early 90’s London rave/hardcore sound. With his last album proper Emerald Fantasy Tracks & last year’s R&S debut Coreshine Voodoo, we saw a honing of these styles. Continuing his ethereal journey through space and time where these previous two outings left off, new album Galaxy Garden – that you will hopefully have in your ears right now – is without doubt his most complete body of work to date.

Artist: Lone
Title: Galaxy Garden
Label: R&S Records
Release: 07.05.2012

01 New Colour
02 The Animal Pattern
03 As A Child (With Machinedrum)
04 Lying In The Reeds
05 Dragon Blue Eyes
06 Crystal Caverns 1991
07 Raindance
08 Dream Girl / Sky Surfer
09 Earth’s Lungs
10 Cthulhu (With Machinedrum)
11 Stands Tidal Waves
12 Spirals (With Anneka)

The varied excursions on display unearth new corners to the wunderkind, whilst maintaining his signature sound and cinematic overtones. Opener New Colour lays down the album’s mandate with layers of symbiotic sound-scapes. On into The Animal Pattern, a rolling 8-bit bastardisation where visions of Out Run’s Splash Wave come flooding back again. Nomrex label head machine drum makes an appearance on two tracks adding his hazy vocals to As A Child & Cthulhu. The latter evolving into a mid tempo broken roller with key stabs which wouldn’t sound out of place on a Japan record.

Thing of beauty, Lying in the Reeds finds Cutler in one of his more melodic, melancholic and reflective moods. This gives way to the ambient drone of Dragon Blue Eyes and through to Crystal Caverns 91; revival stabs, hardcore remnants, a frenetic cadence and we’re already half way through the album. Two uptempo, blissed out stuttered motion bangers – proceed in the form of Raindance & Dream & Girl/Sky Surfer. It’s Raindance and the incredible Earth’s Lungs where he wears his love of Aphex Twin and Warp most prominently, all the time maintaining a very Lone take on it. The album closes this Lone chapter with vocalist Anneka – who’s worked with the likes of Falty DL, Starkey, Ital Tek, Vex’d - and the track Spirals, which is the closest you’ll get to Cutler writing a pop song.

A rollercoaster ride of playful nods to a plethora of scenes and influences past, present and future, a residency at Manchester hot-spot Hoya:Hoya, upcoming shows all over the place, support for his tracks from the likes of Caribou, Diplo, Kode 9, Dark Sky, Rustie, James Holden, Martyn, Joy Orbison – to name just a few – remixes for Radiohead, Tensnake & Underworld already under his belt; it’s going to be quite a year for Lone. Cutler ended 2010 with his tracks Pineapple Crush and Once In A While featured in every respectable ‘Best of 2010’ roundup (Resident Advisor, Phonica, Juno & Fact Magazine). This an album to be treasured and one that will no doubt, end up in even more polls come the end of twenty twelve.

Future Disco Volume 5 Downtown Express Compiled & Mixed by Sean Brosnan

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on December 22, 2011 by E.N.

Marking the year where disco reached the masses and bore many new offshoots and fusions, the award-winning Future Disco series celebrates with its fifth episode ‘Downtown Express’ carefully crafted by Sean Brosnan.

In 2011 disco became yet more engulfed into its musical siblings. Its intrinsic sounds were in a constant state of flux, typical of the ever-changing beast dance music. The new breed of disco brought the arrival of basslines from artists such as Maxxi Soundsystem and Maceo Plex and further merged it with contemporary house music.

‘Downtown Express’ is a celebration of this that goes the distance to champion the best releases from a sea of new talent to embrace the genre such as David August, Benoit & Sergio and Tiger & Woods, who were all equally as likely to break records on traditional disco labels as they were techno imprints such as Visionquest, Crosstown Rebels and Hot Creations in 2011. These records broke the existing rules, bringing samples and elements from disco roots with their own current interpretation, in line with the Future Disco established vision.

The Future Disco series is a barometer for new and future sounds, mapping connections and hinting at where the key artists are headed in relation to the wider musical movement. Joining the dots between the year’s biggest pop stars Metronomy, to new faces such as Mano Le Tough, and established artists alongside those are reaching fever pitch includingMaceo Plex.  

‘Downtown Express’ is a powerful 80s boogie electronic trip engulfing all on a non stop late night party vibe. As ever, Future Disco brings together key tracks and future hits such as Miguel Campbell Something Special’ (Best Track DJ Mag Best Of British Awards), alongside unheard cuts from Maxxi Soundsystem ‘There’s No Love’ and his remix of Bonar Bradberry.

The mix revisits staple artists that the series gave early recognition to and have gone on to become big talents including Crazy P and Tensnake, as well as young burgeoning talent from the Needwant family, Bonar Bradberry and Mario Basanov in his epic Metronomy remix.

Now a global brand synonymous with style and substance, the Future Disco residencies continue to grow at Space in Ibiza and Ministry Of Sound in London while their one off events are gaining momentum across Asia, America and Europe. Their monthly radio show is still perceived as a voice for breaking new records to its expanding diverse audience.

Future Disco is spearheaded by Sean Brosnan, who adds an element of delicacy and intricate craftsmanship to each episode, resulting in a discerning fusion that is indistinguishable in style and nods to the past while hinting at the future. Available in mixed and unmixed format, this episode is suitable for novices as much as avid collectors.

Future Disco has mapped the reemergence of the disco phenomena over its five year history. Garnering titles such as iTunes compilation of the year, it is a voice for anyone seeking knowledge, comfort and pleasure from a genre that has come to eclipse not only a style, but also a desire to dance.
