Midnight To Monaco – Suicide (Adesse Versions Remix)

The total earworm that was Midnight To Monaco’s Suicide gets a ravey makeover, courtesy of UK-born, Barcelona-based Adesse Versions.

Future Classic behind this.

Duke Dumont – Robert Talking

And we thought he’d gone off the boil.

Duke Dumont is back with four track EP ‘Blasé Boys Club, Pt. 1’, the first instalment of a three-part series. ‘Robert Talking’ is by far our favourite cut. Channelling disco house and guest starring Robert Owens on vocals, it’s an infectious number. Check the rest of the EP here.


Eric Prydz – Opus (Four Tet remix)

On Friday evening, an excited Kieran Hebdon announced that BBC Radio 1 would be premiering his Four Tet remix of Eric Prydz’ barnstorming stadium-shaker ‘Opus’.

We usually, but not always, have other things to look forward to on a Friday night besides listening to the radio, so we missed it. However, and much to the chagrin of the hyper-loyal Pryda fanbase who can’t even contemplate one of Eric’s tracks being improved by another, the remix was uploaded to Youtube, Facebook et al.

So here it is:

Fairly monstrous. Perhaps avoid an immediate listen if you’re reading this first thing Monday morning.

Four Tet is no stranger to dipping into Prydz’ back catalogue – he played ‘Muranyi’ at Dekmantel earlier this year, during a sensational set we were lucky enough to witness.

No word as of yet on the ‘Opus’ remix getting a release.

Thrupence – New Light

Slight change of pace here:

Thrupence is the artist and he’s from Melbourne. We say artist, he actually is an artist. Jack Vanzet’s his name and he specialises in graphic design, typography, illustration and the like. It’s all colourful stuff. A quick scan down his work and you’ll be able to sniff out the Future Classic affiliation rightaway.

So he draws for FC and he writes music for FC. And good music too. ‘New Light’ (that pensive GEM above) has been on repeat at HD HQ for days now. A little digging into his repertoire shows he’s been doing it for years and he’s got a wealth of talent too. ‘Synchronous Bloom’ is another stand-out:

You can download ‘New Lines’ as part of Future Classic’s 2015 Sampler here. And for yet more on the Australian label, check out the tasty teaser vid to their US tour. If you’re reading this from the other side of the pond, do the right thing. Details on their site.

George Fitzgerald – Call it Love ft Lawrence Hart (Scuba Remix)

While we were putting the final touches on a glorious night of dance music at Basing House last Friday (pics to follow), Scuba was busy remixing his ol’ buddy George.

George Fitzgerald’s first full-length back in April signified a shift away from the dancefloor, swapping the big-room basslines of ‘Child’ for the impassioned crooning of Lawrence Hart. Scuba reaches out to all the disenfranchised tech-house heads with this one, ensuring his mate’s by-the-beach cut stands the test of the warehouse session ahead.

We like both, check out the original below.

Moodroom Presents: Peter Pardeike (Innervisions)

Alright folks. This Saturday 3rd October, the Courtyard Theatre is the place to be. Preferably between the hours of 5pm and midnight.


Wherefore, we hear you ask. Well. Our pals who make up the Moodroom Collective are finally having their first London launch party having run parties all the way oop narth for the last five years.

This excellent mix from one of the ‘MC’-heads is a good taster of what to expect from the collective – with a tracklisting featuring the likes of Frankey & Sandrino, Edu Imbernon and Tale Of Us we were drawn in immediately:

This Saturday they’re taking over the intimate, Grade II-listed theatre space over on Hoxton square and filling it with a Funktion One soundsytem, a shed load of intimate lights and a killer booking in Peter Pardeike of Innervisions fame.

He’s a star on the rise and you’ll rarely be able to catch him again in such surroundings. A particular favourite of ours was his work with Marcus Worgull on the Lenoix EP:

Tickets for this unique event can be bought on RA here. If you wanna tell your pals, have a look at the event on Facebook here too. The lads have teamed up with Avant Garde’s night at Oval Space featuring Weval and Trentemoller. That one should be just starting as the Moodroom Collective finish up shop. Details on the deal on tickets for that on the RA site too.

Aaand finally, check out Peter Pardeike’s recent Muting The Noise podcast to give you an idea of the kind sets he throws down:

Watermat – All My Love (TCTS Remix)

We love a TCTS remix, we do.

Sam O’Neill adds feel-good flavours to this piano house track from German producer Watermät. Similar vibe to what he did to Bondax’s ‘All I See’, another one to perk up your Mondays:

Human Drizzle Presents @ Basing House – 25.09.15

HD_September_2015_fb_coverHaving recently announced the excellent Wolf Music as headliners joining NVOY, Ben Gomori and Hot Karl for our party this Friday night, we’re limbering up for what is promising to be a night to remember.

Basing House, 10pm on Friday 25th. Get your tickets here.

Although we’ve already featured Wolf Music’s top tunes of the summer, you need look no further than this mix they did for Tim Sweeney’s Beats In Space back in April for the kind of music they like to throw together. You can see the tracklisting here, but highlights would have to come from their own label’s exports, Medlar and Frits Wentink. Not to mention the superb K.98 remix of Thrilogy’s ‘Heaven’, also released on Wolf.

NVOY recently dropped the above infectious piece of future house on Black Butter Records. For the longer listen, check the mix they’ve done for the label’s London’s forthcoming parties below:

Penultimately, check out HD fave Ben Gomori’s exclusive recording of his Bestival set this year. He’s played for us twice before and we can’t wait to have him playing again.

Last but not least. Hot Karl rustled this one up a few weeks ago. A selection of his favourite tracks from the year to get you going.

See you Friday.

Frida – I Know There’s Something Going On (Lindstrøm Remix)

HD fave Lindstrom’s got his hands on Frida’s ‘There’s Something Going On’, adding his usual dose of disco to the wonderfully eighties track and bringing it right up to the present. The ABBA member’s original track is being re-released by Polar Music on 23rd October. Check out some of her moves in the original below:

Auden – Hunger

Mysterious producer Auden returns to Hotflush for his third EP Hunger. 

The title track picks up where previous EPs ‘Wall to Wall’ and ‘Trip to Fade’ left off, revolving around yearning vocal samples, persistent kick-drums and pulsating synths. Channelling everything from breakbeat to acid, the track can have a disjointed feel but the mysterious producer successfully brings it all together under one techno-shaped roof.

For those partial to something a little darker, Alan Fitzpatrick does his thing on the B-Side. It’s stripped back, combustible techno which builds to a serious bomb around the 3:50 mark.

Cop these two, along with doses of ambience and rolling techno in ‘Simmer Down’ and ‘Sewer System’, here.
