Vulture Music stalwart, Xander Milne has been a bit quite on the Western front here for the last couple months… thankfully he’s re-emerged with this lovely, double a-side featuring the vocal talents of Kristy Marie. The pair craft some beautifully written pop tracks that just happen to stand confidently in the realm of quality, crossover club music (think Gorgon City).

‘So True’ is as warm as it is frigid with cascading piano stabs and melodic arpeggios while Marie demonstrates her fantastic range and lamenting lyrics. ‘Stay Heavy’ brings the mood deeper, drenched in a bucket load of swagger and a vibe that would make Crystal Waters’ proud. It’s hypnotic, M1 bassline and 909 snare rolls display the pair’s influences proudly on it’s sleeve… and who could blame them? I’m sure your dancefloor won’t!

Denver young-blood, Sylent EFX has established himself as a reliable source for bumpy house joints and unique flavors… his latest cut, ‘Wonder’ is no exception. A saccharine-sweet, piano/vocal sample filters up during the intro as shuffling hats splutter towards a melodic, subby bassline.

Available for free via Denver’s premiere, house collective, Night Supply, helmed by big-boy mastermind, option4. Check out our previous coverage of Night Supply releases HERE, HERE and HERE.

Montreal based duo, Blue Hawaii, put their signature stamp on the latest from New York songstress, Sirma. Blue Hawaii’s sparse, hypnotic, almost tribal production provides a perfect framework for Sirma’s lilting vocals to flutter about in the ethers… this remix seems far more appropriate for her voice than the original arrangement and I’d be curious to see a full on collaboration between the two burgeoning acts.

Check out her “Instincts EP” to get a taste of authentic Sirma.

Brighton, UK based producer, Peter O drops a tasty four-tracker on Nordic Trax, brilliantly showcasing his classic house pedigree. The titular track, ‘Colours’ opens the EP with a sneaky bass-line and dubby percussion while ‘Keep It Up’ follows a similar formula, its bouncier attitude makes it perfect for the steppers. Enlisting the vocal talents of J-Felix, ‘Touch’ comes straight out of left-field with it’s decidedly disco leanings, a real winner right here. Closing tune, ‘Tea Time’ wraps things up nicely in a very ‘full circle’ manner as filtered chord stabs punctuate bubbly synth lines and tinkling piano riffs.

A bit late to the game on this one, but good music never has an expiration date. Enter UK house duo, Siente. They’ve been on may radar for a moment now with a string of high quality tunes and a couple free downloads, just like this one here. ‘I Remember’ is a silky-smooth, R&B flavored house joint with lots of dubby samples and goregeousness by the spoonful. Show the lads some love and cop it at their Facebook page.
