So far three tracks off James Blake‘s second album, Overgrown, have snuck their way onto the Internet. Now it’s time for remixes and bootlegs. First up: the Norwegian Finnebassen (as Finn Pilly) takes on Blake’s “Retrograde;” turning the minimal track into a buoyant and classic deep house tune. It’s hard to improve on the beautiful simplicity of James Blake, but Finnebassen does well in adopting the original to his sound. Even better, it’s available for download for you on Soundcloud.Posted by
Manchester’s Marco Darko may not have many releases under his belt, but what he has shared with the dance music community sure is exciting. A fan of Hot Creations may recognize his name from the recent fourth volume of the Hot Waves Sampler and his solid “Computer Love” with Mykel Haze. Back now to offer his hand on another compilation of sorts, Sleazy Deep’s Future Tease, Marco doesn’t hold back.
Dance music’s resident tastemaker Pete Tong and Cadenza darling Reboot have teamed up to deliver a lovely compilation album for those of us impatient for next summer’s Ibiza season to begin. With Tongy taking on the first side of All Gone Future Sounds and Reboot following second, the two have chosen a wide variety of house and techno tracks that have either already caught on in our community or deserve a bit more attention (thus the “future sounds” label).
If you’re a regular listener of the Essential Selection or Cadenza podcasts, many of these choices should come as no surprise. In addition to his own recent productions like his remix of Alt-J’s “Something Good” and Hot Since 82‘s remix of his “Dawn,” Tong features tracks from Justin Martin, Finnebassen, Fauvrelle, and Eats Everything — to name a few. Reboot keeps it tropical with choices from Behrouz, Carlo Lio, Sascha Dive, and Nic Fanciulli. We only have a teaser for you this time, but click through the break to check it out with a tracklist.
