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.
Kaskade is without a doubt, a living legend. In every possible way he has influenced dance music for the better. His music is so damn positive. And when he goes and does stuff like playing a super deep, emotional set for a tiny crowd in NYC, or making a track like “Atmosphere,” he reminds you why we all love him. Out today on Ultra Records. Enjoy the passion and go love somebody. It’s the right thing to do. Now I’m gonna go put this on repeat and cry a little bit. Peace.
The multiple sub labels of Silk have been on fire lately. So many great young talents with huge tunes. You can be sure of one thing from all these guys. Silky smooth progressive house. I mean…it just feels right. Be honest with yourself. Shingo Nakamura‘s latest release is a track called “There For Me” with remixes from KIWAMU and Monojoke. These remixers are new to me but won’t be for long. They have done some gorgeous work here. If I had to pick a favorite, it’s the one that sounds most like he and Eric Prydz found each other in the studio and became friends. Yea, I’m talking about the Monojoke remix. If you didn’t get that from listening you need to listen to more Pryda. But overall, I think the original is right on point. Purchase this EP and melt with us.
The wait it over. Daft Punk‘s long awaited comeback album…actually, fuck that. The weren’t ever gone in my opinion. I’ve heard their influence in dance music for the past 8 years. Think about it… Ayways, here is the album. Don’t buy it on iTunes, used Beatport. It’s better quality. Especially for you DJs out there. Come on, step your game up. What do you think? Was it worth all the hype? I happen to like 6/10. I’d say that’s solid. However, that said, I will definitely give it some time to grow on me. We’ve got a long three months of summer ahead of us.
Here is one of my favorites off the record.
Bonus remix from one of our “Spotlight” artists, Theater of Delays. Guess a couple people found out who they are cause this track made it to #1 on the Hypem remix chart this past weekend….piiiiimp. Played it live the other night on a roof…it works.
As if the original track wasn’t good enough, The Knocks had to go and do this…A remix package featuring a couple silky smooth, funky fraiche, nu disco remixes from Treasure Fingers, Goldroom and Amtrac, who are three of our favorites here at AYNE, and then a pretty stellar progressive house remix from Fareoh. The other remixes are from NAPT (breaks) and The Aston Shuffle (electro house). The first four are all mint. The others aren’t my favorite styles but take them for a spin cause the producers deserve it. Previews and purchase links below (couldn’t find an Amtrac preview, which makes me sad…but oh well…it’s not like you won’t download it anyway). Make sure you support all the artists and buy via Beatport. Original is below as well. Didn’t post it before…tisk tisk.
For those who like to get down on the floor and groove a bit.
That fun big room shit. You know you love it.
We at AYNE have been waiting for this release for a really long time. Anabel Englund‘s deliciously haunting vocals are just the sexy surface of this instant classic. The original lives in the deeper level of your soul and takes you into a nice daydream-like state. But you already knew that. Now the remixes. The first is from the always dope, Deetron. He brings in some extremely deep, modulated bass, speeds the track up a bit, and utilizes some nightmarish piano melodies. Both the remix and the dub version are quite dark. Next we have the deep but extremely funky Shadow Child version that is perfect for getting your jack on. Robert James keeps it nice and dreamy with some fresh baselines and crazy echo effects on the vocals in his dark and terrace mixes. Definitely gives you that yearning sensation. One for ze club and one for ze groovy pool parties. Pick your poison. Buy all via the link below.
This one is a bonus remix that is not yet available for purchase or download, but it is easily by favorite of all the remixes. Props to Benoit & Sergio. Been following these gentlemen for quite some time. Basically ever since I heard there “New Ships” EP…which is real solid. If you don’t know…now you know. Ya know.
Oh and one more thing. Hot Natured is playing an insane show in NYC on July 6th at Terminal 5 with additional DJ sets from group members, Jamie Jones and Lee Foss, as well as support from Infinity Ink. And why the fuck not…an appearance from Anabel wouldn’t upset me. This one is essential. Surprised its not sold out already. If you don’t have a ticket, I strongly suggest purchasing one.
These 4 are legends in the making. We are all witnesses.
“Into The Night” is one of the most sensational big room progressive anthems of 2013. The track combines talents of Sander Van Doorn, Dubivison and Mako and of course the beautiful vocals from Mariana Bell. This will be in the Beatport Top 10 in no time. Spinnin’ has the release and Beatport is where you’ll find the download. Preview below. Get to it.
