MK Feat. Alana – Always (Route94 Remix)

August 1, 2014 Posted by admin at 9:00 am

The 1992 original undergoes a deep flavoured makeover via Defected Records, Ministry of Sound and is available now in Australia and New Zealand through etcetc. ‘Always’ manages to incite more dancefloor revelry than the vast majority of modern day house productions. Twenty years down the line and some of today’s most exciting producers are stepping up to add their own signature twists to the cut.

Remixes from Route94, Shiba San and MK himself have been backed by A-List additions on BBC Radio 1, Capital Xtra and Kiss Fresh with the Route94 remix hitting #1 on the Upfront Club and Cool Cuts Charts (UK) and #3 on the Shazam New Release chart.

Tourist feat. Lianne La Havas – Patterns

July 25, 2014 Posted by admin at 2:20 pm

Tourist is the latest addition to the burgeoning roster of Disclosure-affiliated label, Method Records.

After a string of high-profile indie remixes for HAIM, CHVRCHES, Sam Smith and London Grammar, Tourist unveils ‘Patterns’ from his sophomore EP. ‘Patterns’ features the vocals of British soul singer Lianne La Havas who was nominated in BBC’s Sound of 2012 poll and accredited iTunes Album of the Year in the same year.

Pitchfork professes: “It’s masterfully crafted, from the restrained fade-in and exhausted fade-out to the arpeggiated synths that take it to the bridge, quietly bow out, and then resurface for the final sprint to the finish line.”

Duke Dumont – Won’t Look Back

July 17, 2014 Posted by admin at 3:10 pm

Chart topping dance music maestro Duke Dumont returns with a new single ‘Won’t Look Back’, to be released in Australia via etcetc & Virgin EMI.

The last year has seen Duke perform an incredible feat with two consecutive UK number one singles, with ‘Need U (100%)’ picking up a Grammy nomination and latest single ‘I Got U’ following suit to become one of 2014’s biggest singles and club anthems. The latter sold over 2 million copies globally, topped the iTunes chart in 13 countries, went to #1 in the US Billboard Dance Chart, was on the BBC Radio 1 and Capital FM A-List, and accumulated well over 40 million plays online. Duke also toured Australia in 2013 as part of the Listen Out festival alongside fellow UK house stars Disclosure and AlunaGeorge.

‘Won’t Look Back’ is a glorious tour-de-force of soulful sun-kissed house, larger than life vocals and the elegance of Duke’s by now signature majestic piano chords, culminating in a simultaneously ecstatic and yearning refrain. Melding together contemporary UK garage with elements of timeless disco and French house, with ‘Won’t Look Back’ Duke Dumont delivers yet again an intelligent and sublime dance floor classic.

Currently putting the finishing touches on his debut album, Duke has a busy year head with festival slots including Lovebox, Lollapalooza and Creamfields, along with his own Blasé Boys Club residency at Sankey’s in Ibiza, plus another Australian tour in the works for late 2014.

Hatch Takes on a Roy Ayers Classic (FREE DOWNLOAD BTW)

June 6, 2014 Posted by admin at 9:09 am

A startling talent of virtuoso capabilities, producer/singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist Hatch is creating a new line of soul through the electronic landscape of Australia. His cover of the Roy Ayers classic, ‘Everybody Loves The Sunshine’, is an artist-defining moment for the young 24-year-old Sydneysider. With his raw neo-soul vocals accompanied by a mid-tempo bass groove, his cover is certainly a revision of this soul classic for a new generation.

Hatch articulates, “I take a lot of inspiration from 70s and 80s soul and funk artists. It was an amazing time for musical movements and Roy Ayers changed the game. For me it’s all about his passion and realness. ‘Everybody Loves the Sunshine’ is a classic and one that I wanted to share with a new generation”.

Multi-talented in the studio, Hatch also offers a live experience at his shows with synth, percussion, electric violin, sampler and turntable all in the mix. His Rehatched cover of RÜFÜS’ ‘Sundream’ is a perfect example of the young man’s focus, passion and ability which was introduced on stages shared by Disclosure, Rustie and DJ Shadow in 2014.

‘Hatch – Everybody Loves The Sunshine’ is available free via his Soundcloud so we recommend grabbing a copy as well as signing up to his Soundcloud and Facebook. It feels like he’ll have a big year ahead.

Follow Hatch on Facebook and Soundcloud now.

Dirtybird BBQ

April 4, 2014 Posted by admin at 10:32 am

With word that the dirtybird bbq is making its way to Australia in 2014, Claude Von Stroke’s first compilation in Australia comes off the grill cooked to perfection. See his words below.

The new dirtybird compilation is loaded with 11 great tunes I have been collecting for over 6 months. Most notably, the Shiba San “OKAY” record has absolutely been destroying every dance floor known to man. We have lots of big birds like Justin Martin, Catz ‘N Dogz & Justin Jay on this, plus a ton of great newcomers and friends making appearances.

The dirtybird BBQ was founded as a small get together in Golden Gate Park thirteen years ago. We’ve had the same core line-ups and even the same chef, Grillson, since the beginning. But three years ago, the free party in the park got too big and our permit was pulled. The city of San Francisco could no longer handle the amount of people showing up to the event.

Ever since then we have been trying to think of way to bring back the vibe of the BBQ park party. This year we finally put together a team that is able to take the BBQ party all across North America and Europe. We will be starting in Miami and ending in San Francisco so make sure to come grill and chill with us sometime this year. This compilation is a celebration of the O.G. dirtybird BBQ vibe. I hope you enjoy the music.

Love,
VonStroke
