Festival season is in full bloom and for sure one of the most popular and the most interesting festival of the summer season is infamous Sonar in Barcelona.
A few weeks ago we wrote about the parties you should attend at Sonar this year, and now we have highlights of some of those parties for you.
Nautiluss is one of those artists that is pretty difficult to categorize. We like him because he’s well, Canadian, and who doesn’t like Canadians? Maple leaves aside, he’s also a total genius when it comes to sample and sound production. ‘Sample wizard’ is a name that often gets thrown around when trying to describe his body of work, and we definitely agree he’s a pro in this department.
Kalabrese - 'Is This' (Ripperton's Mix n' Remix) [Rumpelmusiq]
Following an impressive string of successful EPs and stellar remixes including his most recent contribution to Chapter 24's "Flow Of Tears" EP, Swiss maestro continues his relationship with the inimitable Rumpelmusiq

Urban Homes — Tropical Jam (Map.ache Remix)
You know the feeling when, on a warm sunny spring day, you wake up rested and full of energy, shuffle lazily towards a window, open it and a gentle gust of warm wind swirls into your room and whispers "hello!"...and suddenly you just want to dance, dance, dance and embrace the world.
Here are the 20 mixes we enjoy the most in April. From ambient to peak time techno and everything in between. Prepare yourself for a beautiful journey.
Spring has sprung and along with it a cavalcade of fantastic releases from Denis Horvat, Olderic, Rampa, Laurent Garnier, SBTH, Hammer, Benjamin Fröhlich, Patrice Bäumel, Abstraxion & Kasper Bjørke.
SBTH - Moritzplatz (Jupiter Mix)
SBTH is the musical partnership of Lossless label founders, Thomas Herb and Mathias Schober (also know as Show-B or SB). The duo debuted under their SBTH moniker last year on their own label with the impressive re-edit of King Britt’s 2002 house classic ‘Uzomaka’ and innovative exploration of avant-garde groovy and melodic deep house magi
Chris Luzz is one of a handful of super talented DJs and producers commandeering the New York underground nightlife scene. Currently co-label head at Little Giant with Anna Cavazos, Luzz is on the brink of releasing his solo EP in time for the North American summer.

It’s officially springtime! The sun-drenched vibe keeps on flowing with the amazing releases, stunning albums, and impressive remixes coming from Jimi Jules, Talaboman, Davis, TD, Eagles & Butterflies, Nuno Dos Santos, Cologne Tape, Map.ache, Cleveland, Pixilife released via Innervisions, R&S Records, Altin Village & Mine, Permanent Vacation, Something Happening Somewhere, Magazine, Engrave Ltd., Equation Recordings, Art Imitating Life, and Samo Records.
Creative Belfast producer Lunar Orbit Rendevouz or simply LOR is a name we’ll be watching closely throughout 2017. Equally focused on twisted grooves and intricate melodic structures, the versatile producer has been consistently stamping his authority on underground electronic music with his multiple perspectives on sound, and his innovative approach to production.
Mathew Jonson & Sebastian Mullaert - Pollen 4 Life
Sebastian Mullaert has yet to meet a long production he doesn't like. His tracks often clock over ten minutes: an eternity in the ADHD world of dance music and a great way to ensure that your track is labeled "unusable" by an average DJ. But then again, when one is talking about Sebastian Mullaert one is rarely talking about anything average.
After hosting Nuno Dos Santos and his label showcase Something Happening Somewhere North America premiere in Brooklyn last week, we were absolutely thrilled to get our hands on a preview copy of his stunning new EP. ’Trigonometry of Love’ is set to be released on March 24th and features four incredible tracks.
Being a driving force in the electronic music scene for more than a decade Something Happening Something (short: SoHaSo) label head Nuno Dos Sontos has built up quite a reputation for himself with releases and remixes on labels such as Kompakt, Compost or SohaSo. With a new EP called ‘Trigonometry of Love‘ in the pipe and his return to Brooklyn for the first SoHaSo label showcase presented by Fiction, Nuno took his time to give us a detailed insight of the past and present of the label as well as personal preferences

These are our favorites for the month of February. Pick yours, put your headphones on and enjoy the ride

In a collaboration with our friends with our friends from Torture The Artist we sat down with one of our favorite producers, Love Over Entropy who will have his US debut at our upcoming party - SoHaSo showcase on March 11th.
New Jackson - Electric Blue
After a blazing 2016, Fort Romeau and Ali Tillett’s Cin Cin label kicked off the new year with its flame burning bright. The spritely taste-making label exploded onto the scene last year with a philosophy of bringing established and new artists together on split EP format releases.
Joakim - On The Beach (Superpitcher Remix)
Through a small window cracked open, a sliver of gray gloomy sky is seeping through, illuminating a man, sprawled out on his bed, asleep but tossing and turning as about to wake up.
A few weeks ago our friends from Torture the Artist made this impressive interview with the man of the moment - Hyenah. We have the honor to host Hyenah this Friday 02/17/17 at the most popular club in Brooklyn, House of Yes. Grab your tickets here
We continue with the same pace in the new year. 20 carefully picked mixes from super talented DJ's from around the world.
If we can take anything away from 2016, is that it was a pretty awesome year for music. A lot of very talented producers really accelerated their careers and put out some amazing releases, EP’s and took on some seriously hectic touring schedules around the globe. Things look to only be speeding up these producers of deep house and techno and we couldn’t be more excited to see the journey they take us on in 2017.
The new year has brought so many fresh albums, exciting releases, and impressive remixes that cover a wide range of underground house and techno music.
