Cajmere , Dyed Soundorom - 1+1+1 (Cajual)
It's weird, and that's why we like it, like partying in space. It's tech-housey magic with a fantastic bassline that's energetic, unusual and fun. Cool stuff. You might recognise slight similarities to Dyed Soundorom's remix of Maya Jane Coles "What They Say". It has the same slightly awkward syncopated groove.
Dusky - Mr Man (Ajunadeep)
London duo Dusky are known for their ability to consistently churn out deep-house bangers. Although extremely good at what they do, we were beginning to feel their sounds were becoming a bit samey. That's why we love Mr.Man. It's less predictable, more sophisticated, and so much love for the piano sample.
Peven Everett - Baby Momma With Sense
"I wanna baby momma with sense". Don't we all Peven. Nobody does it like the Chicago man any more, knocking out consistently great tracks which straddle that often under appreciated area between soul and house. His latest LP, 'King of Hearts' is up there with the albums of the year so far.
Roska - Desire feat Vanya (Rinse)
More slick production biz-ness from Rinse. After BIG releases just gone from Krystal Klear and Foamo, Kicks n Snares label head Roska comes correct with a big radio friendly vocal party time tune. Gonna be big carnival vibes on this one over the weekend.
Future Brown - Wanna Party ft Tink
Anything Fatima Al Qadiri has done over the past few months has been off the scale. The Fade To Mind signing is one of a new breed of producers going down into the depths, we're talking the dark corners of the fucking cupboard under the stairs where Timbaland put a box marked 'that dark shit', and making beautiful music with what they find, be it hip-hop, house or otherwise.
