BY awake-06-Cover-Matchy&Bott

German production duo, Matchy & Bott are responsible for the latest release on BY Awake, a young imprint helmed by none other than Rey & Kjavik.

The lads have been making waves with heavily lauded releases on Suara and Kattermukke and their latest release here sees them in fine form. Lead cut, ‘No One Like U’ is a bouncy affair that bumps in all the right places while b-side, ‘Heating Up’ has a hypnotic bass-line and layered strings that build the energy to a peak-time frenzy. Quality stuff here!

The upstart Manchester imprint, Love Dose Records is back with their second release and it’s first from an anonymous group of writers, producers and singers known as ‘Rabbithole.’

Soulful vocals, intricate melodies and pop sensibilities permeate three original cuts as Rabbithole takes us thru a wonderland of house grooves that channel a vintage, Chicago flavor. Available as a vinyl only release, due to hit shops 8/26/14, stay up with the lads by following them on your favorite social media:

Belgian duo, Arches burst on to the scene not too long ago with heavy lauded tunes that grabbed the attention of fellow countryman and global tastemaker, The Magician. These days, being featured on an installment of the hugely successful, ‘Magic Tape’ series is sure to get you noticed and in the case of Arches, that’s exactly how I discovered them.

The pair of Jochen Sablon (1/2 of Electro-House duo, Sound Of Stereo) and Sebastiaan Vandevoorde (aka Moonlight Matters) forged a musical partnership in the collective fires of their diverse and shared backgrounds. Simultaneously synthesizing a sound that is both current, yet honors the past; is deep and emotional, but incorporates an edge of darkness and brooding energy that can hardly be contained by the rich grooves of their productions.

With their debut single release of ‘There’s A Place’ on Colombia Records which featured remixes from Russ Chimes and Sinden, Arches have shot for the moon and landed amongst the stars. Coupled with not one, but two official videos: one featuring a man in technicolored Knights armor skateboarding and breakdancing at the local discotheque and a second video of the producers and their vocalist, Billie Kawenda performing live in a junk yard of flashing lights; the aesthetic of Arches is clearly defined in their mixture of glitter, dirt and good times… all while enjoying a Gin & Tonic.

Recently announced is the stunning b-side for their debut release, ‘Move On,’ which features the vocal talents of Gustaph, of Hercules & Love Affair fame. Additionally, Arches compiled this fantastic , Spotify playlist to expose a bit more of their musical influences.

A few months back, I had my buddy Cyclist stop in Austin to do a gig and he dropped this remix. At the breakdown, I figured he was playing the original, which brought up so much for me, I was instantly engaged. But then, when the beat dropped in and this awesomeness unfolded, I just lost it!

German based producer, OHYEAH takes on this classic joint from a one of collaboration between Alan Braxe and Romuald Lauverjon originally released on Braxe’s own, Vulture Music.

Free download to boot!
