After Tiga uploaded a short preview of “Let’s Go Dancing,” his in-studio collaboration with Matthew Dear’s Audion alter-ego, it both quickly became viral on online outlets and gained the attention of dance music titans like Adam Beyer, Sasha, Loco Dice, and dozens of others making their way around the global club circuit. Earlier today, Annie Mac was the first to play the mastered track in its entirety and now soon after, the Turbo Recordings boss has uploaded the masterpiece in full to his SoundCloud. Tiga’s full album is due out in 2014, but this record, along with remixes from Solomun, Maya Jane Coles, and Breach will see the light of day on November 10th.Posted by
Paul Woolford is the first announced to remix George FitzGerald’s late summer jam “I Can Tell (By The Way You Move)” and in the midst of thriving off his “Untitled” success, the multi-genre mainstay extends the original’s 90s house groove a healthy dose of impossibly catchy piano riffs and claps. The original and the remix are due out on October 21st and the package will include a contribution from The Cyclist as well.Posted by
Urban Animal (recently highlighted as one of our most anticipated albums of the fall) is Claude VonStroke‘s third original album and release number 100 for his own dirtybird Records and before its release later this month, the jolly giant is giving fans a sneak preview of all ten productions. “The Clapping Track” and “Can’t Wait” are already out on Beatport, and you can also grab “Dood” as a free download. With some of the tracks steeped in traditional dirtybird bass and others drawing from worldly influences (both inside and outside of the electronic music realm), CVS’s newest effort is going to be worth your ears both now and when you can grab the album in full.

The toxicology reports for the two deaths from this year’s Electric Zoo are not yet complete, but authorities are now fingering the drug methylone as the potential untimely killer of the young festival attendees. Methylone has a similar chemical structure to MDMA, but it also has a similar chemical structure to bath salts. Bath salts are outlawed in New York State, but methylone is not yet covered under that ban (even though it is classified as a Schedule 1 drug). Because MDMA and methylone both commonly come in crystal forms, it is near impossible to tell the difference between the two drugs by sight.
In a move that may surprise fans expecting an indie dance or nu disco delight, The Magician‘s first production for Parlophone Records is a bit of a harder-hitting single, complete with breathy male vocals, rock elements, and even a flair of techno bass line.

In a new mini-documentary directed by Dan Wilde, Four Tet discusses the work he did on his career-defining Rounds album as a bit of a celebration of its 10 year anniversary. The video is made entirely of animated stills, in a pseud0-Ken Burns effect, and includes the artist reflecting upon his personal inspirations, specific moments tied to specific records he produced, and some of the trials and tribulations of a electronic music producer.Posted by
Several weeks before Sir Bob Cornelius Rifo, better known as The Bloody Beetroots, is due to release his second studio LP, HIDE, the album is available for a full stream on Rolling Stone’s website. With guest appearances from talkbox legend Peter Frampton on “The Beat,” Sir Paul McCartney on “Out of Sight,” and Mötley Crüe drummer Tommy Lee, the album serves as a symbol of not only rip-roaring electro house of the day, but also its ability to cross generations and genres. Listen to the full stream below.

In our EDM world filled with disposable live sets and predictable synth builds, it is refreshing to take some time to listen to those who came before us. This morning, take 75 minutes to indulge in a Boiler Room set from last year by one of the founding fathers of acid house, DJ Pierre. If Pierre would not have spent time fooling around on a Roland 303 bass machine all those years ago, an entire subgenre of house music likely would not exist. In this set, he shows not only his acid house tendencies and historical leanings, but also his knowledge of more contemporary records. He doesn’t waste much time getting the crowd riled up — five minutes into the set the Boiler Room is already more lively than most peak time moments.Posted by
