Huxley – I Want You (Deetron Remix)

As premiered by Pete Tong last Friday night, here’s the beast of a remix of Huxley’s ‘I Want You’ by Deetron, due for release on the mighty Aus Music. For something a little more, light-hearted, feast your ears on the Swiss producer’s recent efforts on Todd Terje’s funky ‘Alfonso Muskedunder’:

For yet MORE Deetron, have a peak at his April residency shows on Rinse FM. They’re class.

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.

Huxley – Oil Spill

Gooooood morning! Wake up yeah?

Huxley’s back, and he’s got some exciting things lined up. Ahead of ‘The Machine’ EP on AUS in July he’s teased us with ‘Oil Spill’, a deep cut with some weighty basslines. And this EP is a taster in itself for his debut album in autumn. Such a tease!

If these releases are anything like ‘Oil Spill’, we’re up for them. As Soundcloud commentator ‘Jam Snax’ so eloquently puts it, “If only BP had released this after Deepwater Horizon; would have totally turned the public perception on oil spills”.

Huxley – Body Talk

Light up your life/Friday/bank holiday weekend with this from Huxley:

As part of the 2020Vision 20th anniversary compilation, ‘Content’ (which, by the way, is something you all need to watch out for – new stuff from Eats Everything, Maya Jane Coles, Simian Mobile Disco and Paul Woolford), Huxley has produced this deep house delight. WATCH for the piano coming in at 2:50, it’s a serious business.

Bonus tracks:

All this hits you 30th June on, you guessed it, 2020Vision.

Huxley – Creeper

Hot off the press – new one from Huxley.

‘Creeper’ is…well…a creeper. It’s got Huxley’s now easily identifiable banging garage-house beat, whilst being moody and atmospheric.

Huxley is playing a lot of UK gigs in the lead up to Christmas…which is very good of him.

Close – Wallflower Ft. Fink (Huxley Remix)

New Huxley remix for you.

And it’s an absolute gem, even if the big guy says so himself. He’s got all dark and moody on us by reworking Close feat. Fink – ‘Wallflower‘. Close is Will Saul‘s pet project, and Wallflower sees him team up with Aus Music compadre Fink. It’s taken from Close’s second album, ‘Getting Closer’, a fairly well received release from June this year.

Whilst Aus Music and Simple Records, Will’s other label, both promote the underground house and techno talent in the UK, Close is a more commercially focussed music project, with support from a number of big names like ScubaTanner Ross and Fat Freddie’s Drop singer, Joe Dukie. The clear aim of Close was to create an album, not just a selection of tracks, and give it a level of sophistication that required repeat listens, so says Will.

Whilst the original, like much of the album, is carefully paced, tidy and lushly textured, Huxley has taken the mood down a notch or two, building on the atmosphere that’s already present, resulting in a crisp but heavy deep house remix. We think it fits equally well with the early stages of a club set as it does with the late night bus ride down the Walworth road, as you repeatedly question whether or not treating yourself to a cheese and chips from Golden Grill would make your mother proud.

And it’s not the only top remixing being done off the back of ‘Getting Closer’. The Dusky and Midland remixes of ‘My Way’ feat. Joe Dukie are both excellent. Despite being based on the same original release, both produces create contrasting sounds, whilst also stamping their own easily-identifiable presence on the track. A good few things to go on here then, especially if you like your music a touch deeper than most.

Joel Compass – Fucked Up (Huxley Remix)

Huxley’s remix of Joel Compass’s soulful ‘Fucked Up’ is a proper naughty little house number. Complete with Huxley’s trademark garage touch, it will feature on South Londoner Joel’s forthcoming ‘Astronaut EP’ – also featuring Back to Me – a hugely anticipated release on Black Butter Records in June. Keep your eyes peeled for that, and your ears open for what is an absolute belter from Huxley. We bloody love it.

New one from Huxley, need we say more?

Rudimental – Not Giving In (Huxley remix)

Some fun on fun action for you this morning. Tring house supremo Huxley has done his thing on DnB troupe Rudimental‘s latest offering, ‘Not Giving In‘. It’s a fairly straight up and down house pick-me-up, but there’s absolutely nothing wrong with that. If anything, Huxley softens out the poppier edges of the Hackney quartet:

Huxley’s rework here comes hot on the heels of FACT’s premiere of his next single, ‘No Matter What’, due for release through Tsuba on November 20th:

We think both are GOOD SONGS.

Huxley – Let It Go

Wrap your ears around this stomper of a track from Huxley. Released on Hypercolour just last week, this is sure to be swirling around the airwaves for some time to come.

According to the myth and legend of Huxley strewn across the blogosphere, one of the label bosses Jamie Russell signed this release after he heard Huxley playing it to a few people out of an ice cream van at a festival. We can only pray this is true. Either way, it’s great stuff – soulful vocals accompany an unbelievably catchy journey into an instant house classic.

The artwork for the track is quite pleasant too.

If you’re at a loose end in London tonight, head on down to Corsica Studios to see him play with Artwork and Boddika to name a couple. Otherwise, keep your eyes peeled for more tour dates. Definitely one to watch this year.
