As you enter the “Higher Cognitive Process,” you are immediately hit with a sense of wonder as to what you are about to hear, to feel, to experience. The layered synth melodies combined with the pulsating baselines of “Paracas” grip you firmly and never lets go. “Golden Ratio” begins with a greater emphasis on percussion. As it dives into another series of complimentary primary and secondary melodies, my head is immediately bobbing up and down in line with the powerful driving baseline. The breakdown is as smooth as a newborn’s fanny, and the primary melody is infectious and becomes entangled with a series of secondary synths that come in and out of the aural environment with great fluidity. If you can’t tell this is one of my choice selections off the album. The flawless production aside, the entrancing vibe is what makes this track a highlight for me as a listener and a set staple as a DJ.
Sonic Future is a duo from Brazil consisting of Cesar Funck and VJ Leo and these guys have become a staple in my sets as of late. Always equipped with funky baselines and warm grooves, their tracks have received huge support from the industry from the likes of Maceo Plex, Tube & Berger, Noir, and many more! This new EP on Suara consists of a four sensational tracks. The title track, “L.O.V.E.” absolutely dominates dance floors with an a sexy baseline melody and vocals that seem to chant as the groove penetrates you. The next track is a collaboration with Do Santos called “About The Summer,” and this one has one clear message that can be found in pretty much every aspect of the production: the thick, dark, sensual baseline and synth melodies give the track a real dope vibe and the vocals employ a mellow kind of confidence that takes me poolside behind a pair of shades. “Numb” takes you deeper into a land of ambient noises, strong emotion, and warm pads, but then brings you back with a nice diving rhythm. The last track is called “Bring it On” and features a really soulful piano melody, some haunting vocal sampling, and a very powerful drop into an undeniable baseline that invites us to get close and dance closer.
Epic new EP from one of my favorite Anjunabeats artists, Ilan Bluestone. Fresh off of his latest hit single “Spheres” he drops a huge 3 track EP featuring entrancing melodies and euphoric synths. Huge support across the industry including legends, Above & Beyond. Been playing “Waves of LA” a lot and really dig the vibes. What’s your favorite?

Avicii really hit it big with the original of “You Make Me.” It is definitely one of the best tracks on his new album…regardless of what all those haters out there may say about the album as a whole. But this remix…whoa. Throttle is a young producer out of Melbourne who has burst onto the scene over the past few months with his impressive brand of “dirty disco.” Not only does he do wonders with a mashup, but his originals are quite impressive as well. He has some extremely catchy piano/synth melodies and combines them with high-energy disco/electro drops that will have any crowd on its feet in seconds. I like to think of his sound as a cross between Dada Life and Madeon. He has certainly caught my attention and just may have restored by faith in that electro sound.
I heard this in a mix the other day in my car and when I got home I made sure to find it. When I did, I was very pleased to find out that the WhiteNoize homies were behind it. So money, so 90’s. Been getting real into the g-house movement, and this bad boy fits in quite nicely. Currently sitting #3 on the Beatport House chart, it’d be very fraiche to help these guys up to #1. I got a feeling we’re gonna be seeing a changing of the tides this year in electronic music. House music has been living in the underground for a decade, but after a few Aoki shows it should click, nobody likes jumping up and down for an hour. Dusky is still sitting pretty at #1 overall. That’s what I call progress.
As you know, we here at AYNE have jumped in the deep end (pun intended) and thrown 100% support to the darker, more sensual side of house music as of late. Here is new EP out this week on Exploited and comes from female producer, Joyce Muniz. Before this EP, she was virtually unknown to me, but I can say with confidence that she is now firmly on my radar and you will be hearing a couple of these tracks in my sets for months to come. Loving the deep, funky baselines and warm grooves that emanate from her smooth productions. By the sound of it, she knows exactly how I like to get down. Cheers girl. We see you killin em out there. Keep it up. Purchase the whole EP via Beatport today.
