Jacques Greene – FACT Mix 467 (Oct ’14)

What a treat of a Monday morning.

Ahead of his performance on Friday at London’s Roundhouse (where HD will be hugging the barriers down the front), all-time HD fave Jacques Greene has pulled together a FACT mix to start your week off on the right foot. Together with some J Greene unreleased stuff, there’s also a cracking Evian ‘Trance Lord’ Christ track to watch out for.

It kicks off with a graduation speech given by Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs at Howard University, that’s all you need to know really.

Ryan Hemsworth – Fact mix 352

Something a little lengthier for you today, might even take you through to elevenses. We’ve been big fans of the rather hunky Ryan Hemsworth for a while, from his early Main Attrakionz production work through to his genuinely excellent recent EP, ‘Last Words’. Our fellow Hemsworth fanboys over at FACT have now let him spread his wings with their latest FACT mix and he hasn’t let them down:

It sounds to us like the next evolutionary stage after crooners like Frank Ocean and How to Dress Well, brilliantly blending slow-jams with noisy electronica and growly trap-rap. We expect big things from this guy, starting with a European tour please…

Shura – White Light (Gabe Gurnsey Factory Floor Remix)

It’s a tough listen, but ultimately, a rewarding one. Factory Floor head honcho Gabe Gurnsey (FFHHGG) has taken Shura’s ‘White Light’ and ironed out any signs of the dreamy pop song that it once was, and created this seven-minute-long remix. It’s an arresting piece, yet strangely infectious.

Check out the vid to the original below. Shura’s twin brother plays the lead guy, apparently.

Artifact – Even (Huxley Remix)

Hitting “shops” (IRL versions of iTunes) yesterday, Bristolian Artifact’s new EP on Huxley’s Saints & Sonnets imprint contains this gem of a remix from label bossman himself:

A bit of accordion, some ratatat snare drums and Huxley’s house sensibilities make for an enjoyable four minutes. We’ll be keeping an eye on this fruitful partnership.

Desert Sound Colony – Signals (Casino Times Remix)

Ones-to-watch Desert Sound Colony have unveiled this roller of a remix from Casino Times to accompany their recent ‘Signals’ EP, released on This Is Music a couple of weeks back.

It comes just shortly after the three-piece featured on CT’s dreamy and evocative ‘Hope This Finds You Well’, one of ten tracks from their Wolf Music-released LP, ‘Familiar Circles’.

Grab a copy of that full-length here, and for more on the Factory Records-sounding DSC head to their SoundCloud or catch them at Found and Lovebox this summer, amongst others.

Bodhi – Satisfaction EP

Welsh duo Bodhi have recently dropped the final two cuts from their ‘Satisfaction’ EP, out now on the excellent Exploited label. They’ve chucked everything but the kitchen sink into the seven minutes that make up the funky ‘Truth’, and ‘Soul Music’ does what it says on the tin, with the added bonus of a thumping Bodhi beat. They join the excellent ‘Satisfaction’ on the EP, and we’re big fans of both:

If you’re after something a little longer, they’ve put together an uplifting and feel-good 30 minute mix for Outlook festival, ahead of their performance there this summer.

Daniel Avery & John Talabot Mixes

We’re going to take to the longer form for this post, with two mixes from two of our favourites.

Firstly, John Talabot’s closing set from Melt! 2014. Melt! has long been one of Human Drizzle’s favourite European festivals; great atmosphere, good size and a brilliant combination of crowd-pleasing bands, and cutting-edge DJs.

Talabot’s set is a departure from his usual sound – anyone expecting a load of this will be a touch disappointed. Instead, following on from Tale Of Us, the Catalonian produced two hours of hypnotic techno…

Yesterday also saw the emergence of Daniel Avery’s FACT mix. Released ahead of his first Divided Love night at Fabric on August 15, the mix is a trademark blend of soundscapes and thumping beats.

The official video for the brilliant ‘Knowing We’ll Be Here’ also appeared online yesterday – definitely worth checking out…

So, plenty here to get you through the remainder of Tuesday.

RÜFÜS DU SOL – Sundream (Classixx Remix)

Classixx are always an essential go to when the sun’s out. Their summery production is never amiss on any of their originals and they always add the feel-good factor to the work of others. No change here with their remix of Sydney-based Rufus Du Soul’s ‘Sundream’.

Appropriately titled, it may be just what the doctor ordered to settle into the week.

Sam Smith – Stay With Me (Wilfred Giroux Remix)

All sorts of hype surrounding this chap, Wilfred Giroux. Alongside Shy FX and Darkchild, he now makes an appearance on the team sheet for remix duties on Sam Smith’s upcoming ‘Stay With Me’ EP:

WG’s edit adds a killer 90s edge to the pop sensation’s next release – it’s sure to get multiple plays, especially after the success of his debut single, ‘Stronger’, which was released on March 24th on Polkadot Recordings.

Being the debut release for the label too, the future’s looking bright for the lot of them and we’re big fans of what they’re doing. Not only has the Black country label head Sam Bevan been producing himself for a while as Polkadot, but each release on the label will see a different artist designing a limited edition T-shirt to accompany the tune. And we must say, the design for ‘Stronger’ is looking very tasty indeed.

The clan also did a job on recruiting remixers for said release. You should all search out HD fave Clancy’s effort, alongside Zed Bias, Squarehead and Whitesquare. But it was new kid on the block Wilhelm’s efforts that caught our attention via Mixmag’s trustworthy exclusive feature just yesterday. All we’re really told is the fact that Wilhelm’s real name is Josh Scarbrow, he’s 18 years old and he’s from the countryside. One to watch, probs:

Disclosure – F For You (Eats Everything Remix)

It was only a matter of time before a collaboration like this came about. In fact it’s crazy it’s not been done before, but after both acts supported one another on tour dates recently at XOYO and Ally Pally, a remix has come to fruition. Eats Everything has taken Disclosure’s most recent version of ‘F For You’ featuring Mary J. Blige and given it the once over. Surely a match made in heaven.

Although it does contain Eats’ trademark infectious, punchy synth stabs, we were a little underwhelmed. Sure it’ll get a dancefloor shifting their feet when it’s dropped mid-set, but nothing to write home about here. Considering their gargantuan stature, it’s a shame 😦

On the plus side, Eats Everything is releasing some original material with Justin Martin in the form of his ‘Hello Mr. Jello’ EP at the end of March. It nicely coincides with the last few weeks of his residency at XOYO, check out who is playing alongside him here.
