One of the best releases of 2012 was without a doubt from Sydney based producer “Light Year“. The Moderation EP swept many people of their feets. Really looking forward to what he will bring in 2013 and to get everybody interested he’s sharing an interesting edit of “Tame Impala – Be Above It”. It comes over a bit rough at the beginning but it’s probably hard to find the right balance between a electronic rave track and alterantive rock music like this (I also think the mastering of the track could have been better, but I’m not an expert on that area). Extra bonus, a full length mixtape as well!
Doing some regular “shopping” on Beatport and thought it would be usefull for some of you all to see which tracks I buy for my djsets and such. I’ll try giving regular updates of my future purchases!
- Verlenen – I Thought I Told Ya’ll (Craig Hamilton Remix)
Cool old school sounding french house track. Very funky as well!
- Boris Dlugosch – Keep Pushin (Joel Alter Remix)
Another old school sounding house track, but this one goes much deeper! Something completely different as the original. Perfect track to get your groove going.
- Azari & III – Into The Night (Prince Language Remix)
Such a big fan of Azari & III. Real laidback remix keeping the orignal vocal work as the main part of the track as it should be.
- Asykan – Des Errus
Sick release on the BNR TRAX label. This tracks seems to be endless which is perfect as I don’t want it to stop! Only finding trouble mixing this in long, because the BPM seems to be fluctuating constantly.
- Baskerville – Priam
Another cool release on the BNR TRAX label and if I’m not mistaking Baskerville is a duo from the Netherlands. I’ve posted something about them way back, but it seems they are still doing very good! Jumpy electro rave, makes me want to jump around every single time.
- D.IM. – Dragon
The return of D.I.M. nothing more to add. Quality track as usual from this guy.
- Dog Blood – Next Order
Was rather curious about Boys Noize and Skrillex teaming up and it actually isn’t sounding bad at all. When you see your crowd (or yourself) getting tired, drop this one. Instant energy refiller this one.
- Duke Dumont – Giver
Duke Dumont, my hero of this year. Part 1 of this EP series was spot on, bringing us Streetwalker, now part 2 is released and it’s maybe not as good as Streetwalker (hard to match), but again soooo goood.
- Duke Dumont – No Money Blues ft. Extra Curricular
- Jacques Lu Cont – In The Night
Latest release on the Bromance label. It’s not a “dark sounding” release like previous ones on Bromance. But it’s very uplifting electro rave! Dig it! Disco! Disco!
- Light Year – Moderation (Jori Hulkkonen Remix – The Finger Prince Edit)
The original was awesome and it’s now getting a lot of remix treatments. This one is my favorit as it uses the most sounds from the original with some awesome sounding hi-hats added to it.
So, that’s my list of tracks I bought last week. If you have some cool tracks to add which are similar to above, don’t hold back!
I can’t get enough of Light Year and I can’t get enough of Acid, bring the two together and you got this next remix they did for Jaymo & Andy George! Not sure if there is more to add except Light Year should get that new EP on it’s way. Acid at Midnight, simple but effective.
