We’re in the last shivering days of 2011 and one of our favorite finds this year, Amsterdam based producer/dj Mike Mago and his Boemklatsch crew just dropped a new release. It comes in the form of an EP from hard hitting pair Lazy Ants & Rob Threezy. “Chi To Rome” is a jacking and groovey house number but Mike decides to flip it with a synthbased, repetive stomper of a remix that evokes a technoish taste. Other remixes on the EP comes from Discobelle friends NT89 and Broke One.
BONUS: Mike’s remix of fellow Dutch producers Bart B More & Rubix, “Ari” is the music equivalent of an animalistic roar but with an added housey synth and a subbass to rattle your ribcages on the dancefloor.
PS. Mike handed in a smashing remix for the upcoming Disco Of Doom “Shake And Bake” EP on Discobelle Records, coming in January 2012 so stay tuned.
With the holidays approaching quickly, the inevitable dirge of terrible club reworkings is in full effect (drum & bass reworking of ‘Good King Wenceslas’, anyone?) – but that doesn’t mean that amongst the turds there aren’t some genuinely enjoyable Christmas themed jams that you can play out maybe twice a year, every year.
Enter Horsepower, the union of Bart B More, Tommie Sunshine & RipTide. Wisely recruiting Teki Latex to drop some of his signature humor and pathos on the vocals, the track advocates you to skip eating frozen dinners alone at home and spend it rammed in a dark, sweaty room with lots of other people waving their hands around in the air.
Stream it on soundcloud below, and download it here:
And if you like the track (or, even if you hate it) Horsepower advocates taking a minute to check out Dance4Life and Unicef’s charity pages, and maybe even opening up your miserly heart to donate something to them.
