SPOTLIGHT: TÂCHES

taches_040414

If you don’t know…now you know. TÂCHES is blowing (excuse my french) the fuck up. Can’t wait to experience his potent, original sound live. If you’re looking for beautiful vocal sampling and hauntingly deep vibes, look no further. The latest production is called “Malindi” and features Jessica Sophie on the vocals. The synth melodies and deep sub bass take you into a dream world full of flickering lights and sexual suggestion. I’m certainly feeling this one in all the right places. Just a warning, you may get an urge to be very very naughty. Give into the vibes. I will leave you with a description from the anonymous UK-based producer himself…

“Hello. These are some sounds I made late at night. I can’t say I was tired but I was certainly dreaming.”

Can’t get enough? Though that might happen…Here is real nice groovy remix of Naughty Boy‘s track with Wiz Khalifa called “Think About It.” TÂCHES simply makes something good into something great, and this is just exhibit A…

I will leave you with this mix for Pulse Radio. It features some unreleased gems, some recently released original tracks, and some really tasteful selections from the likes of Andhim and Miguel Puente, oh and not to mention, the powerful rendition of Marvin Gaye‘s “Heard It Through The Grapevine” by Romanian producer Sllash. It’s strong to quite strong…trust me. Press play and thank me later. The vibes don’t lie.

RELEASE: Sonic Future – Chameleon EP [Suara]

artworks-000074548727-qs83ur-t500x500

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 & BergerNoir, 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.

RELEASE: Avicii – You Make Me (Throttle Remix) [PRMD]

avatars-000037820142-eb51qw-t500x500

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.
