Blond:ish have been attracting the masses with their multi-dimensional productions and equally impressive DJ skills. This week, Matt Tolfrey and Christian Maiden’s Leftroom imprint has commissioned the London-based duo to offer up their intricate production styling on Kate Simko’s “Go On Then.” The remix transforms the chart-topping track into a gloomy deep house cut — using spacey chord sequences around Kate Simko’s powerful vocals to make somewhat of a cosmic offset.
What we first thought may have been a joke, is probably still a joke. Both yesterday and today, Beatport “First charts” started popping up all over the site – some more believable than others. While it’s feasible to us that Johnny Depp would be into a playlist that features appearances from underground stars like Kate Simko and Nina Kraviz, it’s less likely that good ol’ Mittens listened to Cedric Gervais’s “Molly” on the campaign trail or that Obama is a huge Ben Gomori fan. What do you guys think? Is it all a ruse from our friends over at Beatport? Check out all of the “charts” after the break.
Israeli producer Guy Gerber pleased American techno fans this week with the announcement of a seven date US tour as well as the release of his latest productions, Steady EP. “Steady” is a tightly produced and groovy release; another pleasant surprise from the man who most recently delivered on his Fabric mix back in late June. The EP includes the title track, a Midland remix, and a killer production called “The Golden Sun and The Silver Moon” with support from newcomer Clarian. Gerber will be joined by Carl Craig, Shaun Reeves, and Kate Simko to kick off his US tour at the Highline Ballroom in New York on November 21. You can hear his brand new EP and find the full list of tour dates after the break.
