As you may of already known, Berlin based Chambray is one of our favorite new producers this year. His Rub EP off the mighty ULTRAMAJIC imprint was a success with monster tracks such as “Untitled” and “Ghetto Giants,” and gained support from the likes of Richie Hawtin, Danny Daze and many more. Lucky for us, ULTRAMAJIC is set to release a remix EP with four reworks that are just as great as the originals.

First up is The Hacker, heavy on the bleeps and bloops he takes “Ghetto Giants” to a more industrial level, while Len Faki’s rework of “Untitled” rattles with heavy percussion and extended breakdown. In Bodyjack’s hands, the same track turns into high energy house tune with elements of acid and techno whirling below quick vocal cuts. Finishing it off strong is the Unknown label boss DJ Haus, bringing hypnotic stabs and a rubbery and dry pounding bassline to “Rub.”

The EP will see a digital release on Nov 24th and vinyl release on Dec 1st, until then you can listen down below.

Shir Khan always brings all things deep and funky when it comes to his extraordinary imprint, Exploited. The Sercret Gold series has given us some of the best underground tracks from the likes of Piemont, Huxley and Claptone, the sixth and latest installment is no different.

Secret Gold 6 starts out with my personal favorite, “Give It To Me” by PJU which features Josh Caffe & Robert Owens on the vocals. A soulful yet modern house track, it’s heavy on the horns and synths while hyper-sexed vocal cuts take the track to new heights. The rest of the EP is solid until the very end, Belgium’s very own Antilope’s dreamy concoction “Body Trouble” comes in next and is smooth mixture of deep house and dream pop. Finishing it off Kevin McKay (from Glasgow Underground) gives us a tribal tech house jam with “Everythings A Dream”, and newcomer Will Clarke’s wobbly “Gunna Give U” is a floor focused stomper.

You can purchase Secret Gold 6 now on Beatport, so what are you waiting for?! Go on and get down!

This week we’ve got Berlin’s very own Chambray on mix duty, and to say I’m excited is a bit of an understatement. I first heard Chambray’s “Yuu EP” earlier this year and was immediately hooked with the heavy pounding techno bassline, it made perfect sense for him to be the first exclusively signed artist on Jimmy Edgar’s imprint Ultramajic. His “Rub EP” features monster tracks such as “Ghetto Giants” and “Ease” which have been championed by the likes of Aden and Richie Hawtin. One of the most exciting up-and-coming producers out there today, you’re in for a real musical treat.

“This mix reflects exactly the kind of music that I love as well as showcases inspirational tracks that have helped me develop my own sound. This selection of music includes my current originals, remixes, and some of my all time favorites that I could listen to on repeat for hours. I strive to balance groovy rhythms with stomping percussion throughout the entirety of this set. Having a good mix of both of these elements is very important to me as a musician as well as for my own personal taste. Enjoy!”

Night Drive‘s latest track “Young Rivals” is a lovely piece of polished synth pop. Sounding like a modern version of 80′s electro, the track is fueled by retro vocals over a clean mixture of swirling guitars and pounding drums. Released in collaboration with Sound Control Records, “Young Rivals” is available for purchase on iTunes now.
