The last EP by Sound Of Stereo ‘Mineral’ didn’t really got me going wild, apart from the Opal track the EP didn’t give me the wow feeling I had with their previous release. Totally different story now for the remix EP. A very nice remix line-up with my favourite remixes being Opal TWR72 remix, Diamond Van Toth Remix and my biggest favourite by Belgian duo Errorism, who won a spot on the EP by winning the Diamon remix competition. Love love looooove the vocals on that remix. Check it out below, EP is being released tomorrow on Lektroluv Records!

Remember Bobble? A couple of months ago he released “Zefix” with remixes by Jan Driver and Shameboy. Now six months later he will release another pounding, pounding techno EP called “Zacharias” (28/10 on GND Records). This time Ado and Blitzkid got the honor to produce their own version of the original. The Original Bavarian Mix, which is my favourite, has an awesome old school techno sound to it. Don’t hesitate in checking out the rest of the EP.
On 12 November Ghent will be ready again for Techno madness! Well … techno? There’s been a lot of complaints by die hard fans that there isn’t enough techno music at I Love Techno these days. But hey, music is constantly evolving and that’s what’s great about it! And if you know a thing or two about music you can see some pretty good techno names if you want too. Looking forward to this one, be sure to check back after the event, I’m hoping to do some coverage afterwards!
The Glitch Mob is back with another glorious hour-long mixtape. It’s packed with a bunch of unreleased stuff and older stuff that you just can’t get enough of (I’m talking about their “Derezzed” remix). The Glitch Mob are playing a show tonight in Brussels, be quick if you want to check it out!
Catch the tracklist after the drop.
Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs (aka T.E.E.D.) needed some remixes for their single “Garden”, and they’ve received some great ones from Donae’o, Hackman, Calibre, Joe Goddard (Hot Chip), Soul Clap and MYNC. For those of you who forgot what the original track sounds like, here’s the accompanying video clip:
The remix I like the most is the one by Calibre. This Northern Irish drum & bass legend has made numerous liquid d&b classics and apparently he hasn’t forgotten how to make them.
The beautiful vocals by Luisa (the singer of a band called ‘Lulu & The Lampshades’) blend it perfectly with Calibre’s laidback production. The track has been stuck in my head since the first time I heard his version! Listen to the tune below and buy the full quality version here.
Here’s a free 320 of the UK Funky-style remix by the one and only Donae’o!
This sick compilation by Shogun Audio got released yesterday and it’s definitely a big one! Just take a look at that tracklist. With artists like Friction, dBridge, Rockwell and Spectrasoul, you just can’t go wrong with this one. Check the tunes out below and grab yourself a copy at the Shogun Audio Store.
I don’t like leaving you guys empty-handed, so here’s a fresh drum & bass track for you. In fact it’s a drumstep tune by The Prototypes, remixing Friction’s “Someone”.
Requake again? Yes yes, and this time they’re giving away 4 FREE TUNES! They’re celebrating the fact that they received 4,000 likes on facebook. Check out these sweet tunes and go thank them on their FB page!

Florence and the Machine have a new single out called “Shake It Out”. I was very excited about this release because Florence’s vocal work, like in “You’ve Got the Love” (which was brilliantly remixed by Mark Knight!), always gives me a good mood. Next artist to remix her is Benny Benassi, I had high expectations of this remix and he really succeeded in filling them in. The track builds up rather slow with the vocals perfectly matching a happy melody, as the track progresses a bassline kicks in making the track an instant hit!
