Ferreck Dawn & Robosonic - In My Arms (Extended Mix)
Ferreck Dawn and Robosonic supply us with house music bliss with “In My Arms” on Defected Records. There’s something about the production of this track that separates it from the crowd generic house music tracks. Whether it’s the vocal sample in conjunction with the subtle piano riff, or the rotund bass line, this tracks’ elements have been brought beautifully together leaving DJ’s with a must play as they warm up the dance floors.
Todd Terry, Gypsymen - Babarabatiri (David Penn Remix)
David Penn lays down the groovy house beats once again with a Capetown/Latin feel on the Babarabatiri Remix. You can play this groovy weapon while things are things are still chill, but be sure to notice the dirty riser at 4:20 which let’s the crowd know things are about to take off soon. Happy grooving =)

Holy Ghost! - I Will Come Back (Drop The Lime Remix)
I don’t really know much about Drop The Lime. I know he was peaking around 2010, 2011 by the looks of his facebook, but it seems his career is somewhat defunct at this point. If you want to undoubtedly surprise your crowd with some absolute tech bliss, look no further than this remix of Holy Ghost!’s ‘I Will Come Back”.
What you’ll get: A tribal-tech beat with some sub-bass, ripping vocals with some reverb and an overall “chune”. This next part might be dissapointing… I unfortunetly have no idea where you’ll be able to purchase or even download this song. It streams on Spotify – you can’t even find it on YouTube. It’s all very peculiar. Anyway, enjoy and good luck DJ’s 😄

WH0 - Sound Bomb (Original Mix) - Preview
This track is not out yet. We heard it on Danny Howard’s Nothing Else Matters Podcast (episode 139) and it blew us away. This is what WE.ARE.ALL.ABOUT when it comes to the world of tech house. Kinda brought us back to the days of Nic Fanciulli’s ‘Hey Big Girl’. This piece of vinyl is straight fiyaaaaa. I wish I had some animated emoji’s like those Russian blogs lmao.

Danny Howard - The Body
My Friend - My Heart Burns There Too (Original Mix)
This new duo originated as strictly a passion project until their track got picked up by Danny Howard’s ‘Nothing Else Matters’ podcast in the ‘Future Fire’ segment. Equipped with a rumbling and growly low end and balanced with delicate arpeggiated synths, My Heart Burns There Too boasts that Anjunadeep feel that will have you grooving right away. Check it out.
Virtual Self - Ghost Voices (Original Mix)
Danny Howard - Cosmic Girl (Original Mix)
Tech Banger from Danny Howard. Check out the other release on his EP titled Havwest as well. This one brings high energy to the dance floors and is great for peaktime as well as longer opening sets, just as long as you bring it back down of course ;). Danny really brings the thunder on this one and its nice to see this guy getting the respect of the bigger labels. He has a weekly podcast airing on BBC Radio 1 as well as Sirius XM that we closely follow titled “Nothing Else Matters”.

Dirty South - Night Walks
Dirty South just put out a beautiful album simply titled “XV” signifying his 15 years in the industry. It’s on the EDM Mogul’s own label, Phazing allowing him free reign on the entire project. It’s definitely got an Anjunadeep with it’s own twist to it. The whole album is worth a listen although I’m not sure how much you’re gonna get out of it playing in the clubs on your own.
