Jonas Rathsman – Skepparkrans

First unveiled in his Boiler Room set last year, we’re finally treated to Jonas Rathsman’s ‘Skepparkrans’, or ‘Skipper Wreath’ for the non-Swedes amongst you.

This toe-tapping affair is all high-hats and looped vocals and serves to be the 41st release from French Express, it’s a real grower.

While we’re on it, fellow French Express templar Isaac Tichauer has recently dropped his July mixtape, may be worth a visit:

Isaac Tichauer – Questions

One to get lost in, there’s a decent drive behind Isaac Tichauer’s new one, ‘Questions’. It’s the (slightly darker) B-side to the summer jam ‘Changes’, that we featured the other day. As always with the Australian producer, French Express are behind this one and you can get your hands on the release April 15th.

Isaac Tichauer – Changes

They’re always so crisp.

The 39th release from French Express comes in the form of Isaac Tichauer’s first single of 2014, and as expected it’s a real delight. It’s the kind of smooth house we’ve come to love from the US label and this one ain’t any different – a controlled tempo and soulful atmos make it a sure-fire winner in sunnier climes to come.

Out April 15th.

Isaac Tichauer & The Magician Mixtapes

Two top mixes for the longer listen. Isaac Tichauer from the highly praised French Express family is first up with his March 2013 mix, there aren’t many bad moments in there. A particular stand out is the irresistible ‘It’s You’ by FCL which clocks in within the first quarter. If you’ve not already, go check out his French Express peers’ Jonas Rathsman and Perseus’ Essential Mix from back in Jan for some more feel good beats.

Secondly The Magician’s released his Magic Tape 31. It kicks off with Duke Dumont’s stunning new remix and look out for Clancy’s new one ‘All Just In My Mind’ a little over the half way point, super excited for this one to be released.

Radio 1 Essential Mix – Future Stars of 2013

A little tip of the cap to Pete Tong and his team for their special Future Stars of 2013 series of the Essential Mix. Thus far they’ve entertained some real delights. Spawning from the really quite excellent French Express label, they kicked the year off with American DJ Perseus and Sweden’s Jonas Rathsman, who collectively provided a snapshot mix of what French Express are about. Go no further than Chris Malinchak’s ‘You’re So Good To Me’ to see how feel-good it is. The kind people at the super-hot label have crafted a non-BBC version, click here for the free download.

They’ve also invited two heavyweights from the UK bass scene down to partake, Duke Dumont and George Fitzgerald. Both continuing their rise to superstardom, their mixes are littered with names that are making waves in the underground electronic scene, and both are quite simply, essential listening.

Tomorrow night is the fourth and final part of the series and will feature Friction’s one-to-watch in the world of drum and bass, Metrik.
