Catz ‘n Dogz and KiNK’s long awaited release of “Good Love” is finally here. If you’ve been to an underground show or festival in the past weeks, you’ve probably heard it’s catchy looped vocal segment played out by a cast of top-tier acts. The track sees its release on Claude VonStroke’s dirtybird records — the imprint that has been setting the standard for bass-centric tech house. These two acts have brought to fruition a bouncy summertime jam set for the peak-time hours.
Pete Tong is back this week with his weekly Essential Selection, featuring a flurry of new music that spans the dance music spectrum. We are treated to two world premieres this week; one from Ibiza royalty Solomun, and the other from Hot Natured vocalist/producer Ali Love.
Last week’s Essential New Tune, Calrian & Guy Gerber’s remix of “Claire,” was succeeded by Ali Love’s “Emperor,” which will be released on underground label Crosstown on April 1st, complete with remixes from Maceo Plex and Waze & Odyssey. Progressive lovers were treated to Tiesto’s remix of Zedd’s “Clarity,” W&W and Ummet Ozzcan’s “The Code,” and Tim Mason’s “Swoon” among others.
Belfasts’ old school house extraordinaire, Ejeca, stole his 15 minutes of fame, where he discussed dance music influences growing up and how his journey to success began. To top it all off, Bulgaria’s Kink showcased the best in techno in this week’s Goodie Goodies while Pete Tong ended with an Essential Hot Mix not to be missed. Full tracklist after the break.

Matthew Dear’s “Fighting is Futile” is out today with a hefty remix package; critical favorites like Seth Troxler, KiNK, and Benoit & Sergio have all bestowed remixes upon the Brooklyn-based DJ’s latest single off his stunning 2012 album Beams. Dear has always done well straddling the gap between house and indie rock, and with many productions indebted to the likes of Talking Heads or Brian Eno, his work on Beams was no different.
