Joakuim – Desire

Joakuim is an electronic producer from Marseille, France. He apparently spent some time in Mexico City where some friends introduced him to the liquid drum n bass sounds of Alix Perez and Lenzman. The influence is evident, while he’s personalized his vibe with smooth-house touches. Check out his newest track ‘Desires,’ now a free download via […]

Greymatter – Clocks

Greymatter is Brighton-based electronic producer Graham Luckhurst. After a two-year hiatus of being “pigeonholed into deep house,” he’s back with his new album No Blood Without on his very own label Unique Uncut. You can cop the broken beat single ‘Clocks’ now on Bandcamp. Expect to hear more of these beat-breaking skills.

Todd Modes – Knossos

Todd Modes is a house producer from Detroit. ‘Knossos’ is one of the standout tracks from his newest record Native Visions. The song pairs a saxophone and faint echoes to a continental Balearic rhythm. If you dig this, be sure to check out the Kiwi brothers from Chaos in the CBD.

I closed out my Best of last year with his magical track ‘York.’ As he describes on his Bandcamp page: “All my music is connected by a gloomy spirit, which is minted by a warm sincerity. I try to merge all kinds of […]

Leron Carson – Lemonline

‘Lemonline’ is not a new production. Chicago House producer Leron Carson (RIP) made the track in 1987. But it’s finally getting a proper release roughly two decades later thanks to Theo Parrish’s Sound Signature label. It’s a proper old school groove. Also be sure to check out ‘China Trax’ from the classic 1987 EP. Cop […]

Chaos In The CBD – Subterranean Storm

New Zealand brothers Ben & Louis Helliker-Hales are Chaos In The CBD. Their newest EP dropped earlier this week on the Japanese imprint Mule Music. The track ‘Subterranean Storm,’ also the name of the record, continues to showcase the group’s mastery of producing soothing and restrained deep house music. I highly recommend digging through the duo’s Soundcloud […]
