Now, listen and let go of all chill.
Highly Sedated – Burn (Brennen Grey Remix)
Rising producer Brennen Grey is becoming a master at the craft of techno. This is evident the minute you hear one of his 2017 productions, like Get Down EP or his unforgettable set at Carl Cox’s PLAYGROUND stage at Burning Man. Now, he’s back with a heart-stopping remix of the single “Burn” from Swedish electronica band Highly Sedated. Out now on Size Records, it’s a dark and high-tempo rendition, boasting a rumbling bassline and brooding build, before launching into an explosive breakdown. This one is flawless.
Yotam Avni – Midas Touch
Hailing from Tel-Aviv, producer Yotam Avni is known for productions that beautifully infuse soul, house, and techno music, making you think and feel outside the box. His latest Mabruk EP is yet another prime example of this skill, with our favorite being “Midas Touch.” Out now on Innervisions, the track is made up of gorgeous middle eastern influences, magnetic vocals, and a heavy energy that will burn up the dance floor.
Melody’s Enemy – Dead 2nite EP
London duo Al Jones and Andy Haeffele, aka Melody’s Enemy, return with more killer music that continues their quest to bring techno to the jungle generation. Their latest tracks come in the form of Dead 2nite EP, out now on Skream’s Of Unsound Mind label. Speaking of Skream, if you had the chance to catch any of his recent open to close sets, then you’ll 100% be familiar with the high energy and rumbling rave vibes of this EP’s title-track and its runner up, “Redlights.”
ODD010 : ODDyssey Vol 1 – Spektre, Balthazar & JackRock, The Southern
Ramiro Lopez and Arjun Vagale’s ODD Recordings has been one of our favorite new labels of the year. Launched at the beginning of 2017, they’ve already rolled out handfuls of heavy hitters like the head honcho collab “Oddball,” and Ramiro Lopez and Andres Campo’s “Pachamama.” Now, the label wraps up this massive year with their 10th release. It’s the first volume of their new ODDyssey series and it’s pure fire. Featuring DJ and producers Spektre, Balthazar & JackRock, and The Southern, we promise you’re going to love every second of ODDyssey, Volume 1.
