MK is one of the biggest names in house music, rolling out hit after hit throughout the 90s. So I was pretty happy to hear a new track of his was getting released, with a string of releases. It comes in the form of the Return To Me EP, released on a collaboration between Scion A/V and Rhonda International. The whole EP is full of goodnessm and you can grab a free 320 of the Goddollars remix over on xlr8r, but the standout remix for me is the Art of Tones Returning Dub. Look out for it on the EP.
Mowgli never seems to disappoint, so as you can imagine, his new EP is 2 big room bouncy house numbers. Straddling the sound between tech-house and the Deadfish pseudo-Electrohouse style perfectly, he delivers a huge EP, with the b-side as good, if not better than the A!
So I haven’t been posting a lot lately, I apologise. The WordPress Audio Uploader has been really wack for me lately, meaning any chance I do get to blog I wait for ages for it to upload, and then it crashes and I don’t have time to do it again. I do have loads of great new and old music to show you though, so I’m going to try and get through it as much as possible…
First up is the big Lightworks debut EP from Ossie, Tarantula/Creepy Crawlies. Big bass vibes down at 125, giving you that perfect dubstep/house fusion that is killing it at the moment.
This is probably my favourite version of the infamous b-more club ‘every freaking night’ vocal sample. So, when I went to buy it on iTunes, and realised it was up as a free download, it made me pretty happy. So, I thought I’d share it with the rest of you. Enjoy.
Dublin’s freshest 4-piece headline this week’s Forward/Slash. With support gigs for The Mightly Atomics, House of Dolls, and The Mighty Stef (to name a few) behind them, they’re being hyped as the next band to watch. Check their promo video below for a taste of what’s to come.
Cloud Castle Lake (DJ Set)
Dublin’s most handsome band? Four of the faces of 2011? I’m pretty sure State.ie have called these guys both of these things, and more. Either way, here’s a chance to see what a handsome band listen to at home, as Cloud Castle Lake do a DJ set. Listen below to see what all this music listening and face grooming has churned out.
Forward/Slash Frankie Grimes resident will as ever be playing everything from hip-hop and dub, to house and techno. He might play some of his own tracks, which have recently gotten international support from names like Screendeath, NT89, Munchi, Louis Louis, Two Charming Men and Beataucue to name a few.
Next up is a track from Riva Starr’s 2010 album If Life Gives You Lemons, Make Lemonade on Made To Play. It’s quite unlike Riva Starr’s other stuff in my opinion, stripped down, with a big 808 kick, and contains a big sample from Lafayette Afro Rock Band’s Darkest Light.
