Junior & Baumon releases a new original single “Don’t Listen Much” via European label Gomma Records. Consisting of Swiss producer Simone Bauman and German songwriter Fabian Kalker, Junior & Buamon’s “Don’t Listen Much” features vocals from American folk singer Ian Fisher whose Southern charm provides some blussgrass style to the techno pop tune.

Italian singer Caroline Koch recently released her single “Timeless” on Dutch label Dirty Soul Records and today reveals the full remix package for the tune, including a rework by one of our favorite producers Tchami. Here the original deep pop tune gets a beautiful chill house rework.

Toda we’re excited to premiere Mike Mago’s thumping remix of Shift K3Y’s “Name & Number.” The track comes as part of a remix package with additional reworks by Wax Motif, Cause & Affect, and Chloe Martini.

It’s been a gradual growth in skills that culminated last month with Shift K3Y’s first live show as the frontman of his own band. What started off as a high school kid making dubstep influenced beats in his bedroom has over the years garnered the support of Annie Mac, Diplo, and Skrillex. UKs’ favourite radio stations began supporting him then and haven’t let up, paying particular attention to the glittering garage pop of “Touch,” a top three hit in spring 2014. This evolution from bedroom producer to a fully formed live show for Shift K3Y proves that he’s an artist with a vision and this year that vision has finally been realized.

Message Home Cover

It’s been too long since we’ve heard from our man, Xander Milne… he was a staple around the DB office just a year ago but we lost touch. Well, fear not because the man is back and he comes baring gifts!

First up, we get a bit of a curve ball, a downbeat EP with three, exceptionally head-nod-able, boom-bap styled tunes. The “Message Home EP” sees Milne channel some Dam-Funk-esque electro-boogie on the title cut while he blesses the mic with some deep rhymes on “Rugged Child.” Closing cut, “Beyond The Stars,” is a bittersweet ode to perseverance and staying the course, no matter what obstacles may stray you… if I had to guess, I’d assume we’d have to thank the one and only Bald Head Slick aka Guru for the words of wisdom and encouragement. #rip

Shout out to MARGAUX SOLAND for the collaborative artwork!

As an added bonus, Mr. Milne keeps all the house heads happy with his latest joint, “Troubles feat. Vera Hall.” This uptempo, deep-house cut utilizes the instantly recognizable hook popularized by Moby in his timeless classic, “Natural Blues.” Here, we get and irresistible revision that features a bouncy, 808 bass line and some slick, filtered chord stabs. Proper dance floor biznezz on this one…. show the man some love for all of his generosity!

I was invited to like David Hasselhoff’s Facebook page a week or so ago by a friend for what I thought was a practical joke but that has proven to be wrong today. I’m not quite sure what’s going on in this video except that it’s a mixture of ridiculous and awesome. Think Sharknado meets Grindhouse with “Ryan Gosling in the movie Drive” dressed Hasselhoff sporting a jacket that says “Kung Fury” on the back. Comments are welcome.

Kill Paris ft. Royal

Kill Paris (aka Corey Baker) has been working towards this moment for over three years and today he finally releases his debut album “Galaxies Between Us” via his own label imprint Sexy Electric. The 10-track LP showcases Kill Paris’ genre-bending sound and affinity for glitchy bass, disco grooves, and funky synths.

Our personal favorite off the record is a single featuring heartfelt vocals from Royal, who first blew us away with his original track “Passenger.” Take a listen below to “Operate” and be sure to grab Kill Paris’ “Galaxies Between Us” is out now on iTunes.
