As the highly anticipated release of Russ Chimes’ “Turn Me Out” awaits, another remix to the package has surfaced on his Soundcloud page. Earlier this month we showcased Ejeca’s rendition — which transforms the upbeat nu-disco cut into a deep house gem. This time around, newcomer Annie Starlight offers up a proper remix that centers around an abiding downbeat with almost a calming effect to it. The package, originally set to release on Deconstruction/Columbia Records on April 29th, has been pushed back to May 6th. With a track this good, the wait is well worth it.Posted by
Russ Chimes‘ “Turn Me Out” is already one of the most anticipated songs of the year and to follow the release, there will be quite the remix package in tow. The track initially earned Special Delivery status on Annie Mac’s Radio 1 show, and last Friday, her DJ cohort Pete Tong debuted the first remix of the bunch. Belfast native Ejeca takes on the soulful nu-disco cut and adds his rolling and deep touch to the already feel-good original. In stripping the track down, Ejeca loops the vocal over a set of organic house undertones, using a driving chord sequence to create an all-around dance floor masterpiece. “Turn Me Out” is set to release April 29th.Posted by
Ok so it’s not quite as impressive as Madeon‘s 95 track minimix, but we were nonetheless very pleased to discover Russ Chimes released a free download of his 29 track, five-minute minimix he crafted for Annie Mac last week. Chimes highlights his penchant for the classic — throwing in more than enough soul, lusty piano riffs, and dirty groove-based samples for the adoring vintage house fan. Dare we call this…perfect? Download below and tracklist after the break.
Well, as predicated by the Mesoamerican Long Count calendar, it’s the end of the world as we know it. Unfortunately, only one of us is John Cusack, so the rest of us have no choice but to party into oblivion. At least we can thank the Mayans for conceding doomsday to a Friday. To accompany Armageddon, we have provided a list of tunes that will add appropriate theme music to the backdrop of imminent annihilation. Hopefully, you can find consolation in their uplifting message. Godspeed.
Last week, Annie Mac debuted Russ Chimes‘ brand new original track on her weekly radio show as the Special Delivery tune. From the start, the infectious lead play fools you into thinking that a dreamy progressive cut is on our hands; but its not until the vocals hit that you notice the complete house anthem Chimes has created. Fresh off the release of “Back 2 You,” we’ve basically come to expect consistent hit-making out of him. Release date is unknown, but according to his Soundcloud page, it’s “coming soon.”Posted by
Whether it’s a preview, release, or in this case, a mixtape, everything that has come from the Russ Chimes camp has gotten our attention. His “Expressway Mix” — which we wish he would out on a more consistent basis — is the perfect selection of songs to start off your day with. Featuring tracks like Sasha’s remix to Hot Chip’s “Flutes” — which was our #1 rated song for September and is currently crowned as the #1 track on the Beatport overall top 10 — and plenty of other melodically infused gems, this hour-long mix showcases the groovier and funkier side of the surging deep house genre.

Featured on Pete Tong’s Radio 1 back in May, “Back 2 You” has been floating around the ether of the internet for months as a radio rip, teasing us with it’s punchy bass and nu-disco atmosphere. In his usual fashion, Russ drops a pulsating deep house bass line amidst a floaty disco groove, merging the two together in an artfully subtle way. The intricately crafted synthwork, vocal samples and bouncy percussion work perfectly together to create a track that’s impossible not to enjoy.
Go ahead and delete those ill-begotten radio rips, we will finally see an official Beatport release on July 30th.Posted by
