Philippe Aubin-Dionne is house producer Jacques Greene from Montreal. One year after dropping his debut full-length album Feel Infinite, he’s back with another gem entitled “Nordschleife” for the Adult Swim Singles series.
From the layers of breaks and sprinkles of jungle on the new track, it appears that Greene is expanding his electronic palette once again. The music video seems to magnify the song’s hypnotic vocals and shuffles by showing a reel of highlights from the 1984 Mercedes Cup.
Shanti Celeste is an up and coming house producer from Bristol, England. Her latest 2-track EP features the jungle healer ‘Make Time,' combining a rich collection of synths and electronic breaks. A real treat — add it to the bag.
DJ Rum is UK electronic producer Felix Manuel. His latest drop the Forgetting EP blends a melange of vibes including jazz, juke, and breakbeat rhythms. The track ‘Projection' sounds like a Cinematic Orchestra piece.
It's hard to nail down the best track from the genre-hopping EP; all tracks are tasty in their own right. But the shifty pace of ‘Induction' which made it debut on the Gilles Peterson show may delight your ears as well.
Be sure to check out the crunchy bass on the 2016 B-side release of ‘Abandon Me' as well:
Doms & Deykers is a collaboration between Dutch electronic producers (Steffi-e) Doms & (Martyn) Deykers. Their new album Evidence From A Good Source contains a slew of rolling techno gems and broken beats.
“The Doms & Deykers sound is a mix of new and old music we love, but more importantly is that it's focused on melody rather than on soundscape type stuff. Good melodies make a song last a lot longer and we both love lush pads and sharp riffs! My personal favorite from the record is ‘Sweet Sanctuary'.”
The Maghreban is a beatmaker and so-called ‘outsider' based outside of London. He apparently came into house music on an open minded whim, after crawling through other genres like drum n bass and hip hop, and old jazz and movie soundtracks. His new single ‘Brooklyn' is named after his dead cat.
