Here are our top picks for March. These are the 5 tracks we've listened to a lot in the last couple of months and were handpicked for your listening pleasure. It's Wednesday, you've already had your cup of coffee and the weather outside looks utter shit. Press play and let's leave it to these absolute club gems to get your blood pumping. You're welcome!
Dinky - Casa (Axel Boman Dub Mix)
"Axel Boman delivers a stunning, emotive and epic nine and a half minute dub version, overlaid with spoken word samples referring to lost experiences (as in psychedelic drugs and sex). The Swedish born producer is much-lauded for his releases on DJ Koze’s Pampa, Permanent Vacation and his own imprint, Studio Barnhus, formed with Kornel Kovacs and Petter of Border Community. Released last year on Crosstown Rebels, this is still a definite go-to track."
FATIMA YAMAHA - ARAYA
"Dutch producer Bas Bron aka Fatima Yamaha has been hammering out quality releases under numerous aliases for more than a decade now. Nevertheless it wasn’t until the 2015 re-issuing of his fourteen-year-old track "What’s A Girl To Do" on Dekmantel Records, voted as RA's number one tune. He's back with the EP title track 'Araya' which is its worthy successor. Released on Dekmantel, on the 7th of February."
EMANUEL SATIE - ALL THE TIME FEAT. SERGY
"Last year proved very successful for the young Frenchman who is never short of proving us why he was picked as the 'Producer Of The Year Award' by Dj Awards. Out of his studio in Berlin he's successfully launched himself onto #1 on Beatport with his "I Get Deep" edit, continued with the big success of "Come As You Are" with a #2 on tech house charts and collecting numerous plays by the biggest names in the game. Building on that he's had his first Australia and Argentina tour and payed regularly in some of the best clubs like Space, Pacha and Watergate. "All The Time" was released as a 3-track EP on Moon Harbour in February."
HOBO - OBEY
“I wrote all these tracks on my mum's dining room table, one night in Canada two or three summers ago. I was inspired by the sights and sounds from out the window. A bit of wind, some crashing waves and darkness. I rerecorded some synths a week later in Berlin and they were good to go.” – Hobo After a good 2 years of absence, Hobo has fired himself right under our radar. ‘Peekaboo EP’ dropped on Sasha’s Last Night On Earth imprint in April which signalled his triumphant return. "Obey" is a bit more club-ready bass-heavy tech house track with hypnotic synth and smooth vocal chops. Released last year in late June on Steve Lawler's imprint Viva Warriors.
SANDBOARDS - VISA
"Visa" was the first and only EP dropping on Bicep's very successful own imprint Feel My Bicep which wasn't their own production. What more is there to say? Bicep boys loved it and so do we. Released last year in October, by young New Zealand Kiwi's called Sandboards this is the EP title track Visa. Looking forward to hearing more content from them!
