After the success of his well-received single “Tonight” which received praise from the likes of Worthy, Markus Schulz, TJR, Joachim Garraud, Eddie Richards, Chrissy Murderbot and many more, Eddie Hoey returns from his madcap experimentation with a spooky techno scorcher entitled “Nightmares.” The original mix is pure grit, destined to shock people awake from their dance floor dream states. The track features a classic hip hop sample re-made by NYC rapper Mojo of Dujeous. (Bonus points to anyone who knows where the hook is from originally!) Wongo represents on the remix properly with a crunchy, chopped up tech house romp. Finally our Lithuanian ambassador Boyfriend brings us a very creative Moombahton take with a spaced out acid house vibe.
Easily one of the best dance music labels of all time, Get Physical, releases the next in their series of Body Language mixes.. this time the selectors being Catz ‘N Dogz.
Greg and Voitek have been extremely busy lately, establishing themselves on a global scale as artists with somethin’ to prove. Originally from Poland, the two began as ’3 Channels’, playing the polish scene, and growing artistically and musically with each passing moment. They eventually departed from their homeland and set up base in Berlin. A name change came with their new surroundings and ’Catz ‘N Dogz’ was born. read more…

About This Release: Traversing the galaxy to bring you the freshest in new sounds, we proudly present OMFG, an enormous banger from Swedish producer Svidden. As 1/2 of AudioStalkers, Svidden is no stranger to the world of making huge sounds for the festival crowds, which he does an amazing job of here. OMFG is a wild ride of big drums, hard hitting synths, drama, and an unforgettable madcap vocal. On the remix tip Chicago’s Willy Joy (Trouble & Bass, Plant Music) delivers a very impressive moombahcore version that is destined to shake the walls of clubs across the globe. Willy manages to cram even more sublime sounds and textures into the mix to great effect in his very forward-thinking bass heavy monster. Last but not least a dubstep rework comes courtesy of the prodigious Boltcutter. Hope your big floors this summer are ready for a beating!
Stoked to kick off our summer with some great new music from far and wide!
ABOUT THIS RELEASE
RIS Labs begins its summer by unveiling The Chirps Remixed. After tearing up the Juno Records charts with his debut EP “Challenger,” we are proud to present a highlight remix by the fast-breaking Reilly Steel. Reilly’s work here is a superb example of his forward thinking take on bass music: dark, brooding, and filled with subtle, nuanced textures. The remaining remixers – Alen Bajd, RiMiNiO, and Jamieboy respectively, were each winners of a remix competition that we partnered with Reverbnation on. All of these producers were a head above the rest and we look forward to hearing more from them. Hailing from Croatia, Alen Bajd brings us a techy, driving house rub. Poland’s best kept secret RiMiNiO swims through deep warm bass tones, stabs, and bells. Jamieboy adds guitars and flips the tune into dubstep and hip hop territory.
ABOUT THE ARTISTS:
Simply put, DJ Fame & Eric Sharp are making a lot of noise. Their first collaborative release, Wiggle Room, was featured on Beatport, licensed to CSI: Miami, and crushed many a dance floor. Their latest project “Rave In The Key Of C” was released by Tommie Sunshine on his Brooklyn Fire label to much acclaim. DJ Fame is best known for his “Name It X” EP on Dubsided, Switch’s seminal label, which spring-boarded his international career in 2006 after holding down NYC since the 1990s. Eric Sharp is working the production game from the city of San Francisco, having recent released his debut solo EP to massive praise in addition to a slew of collaborations and remixes.
Honduran artist Dano Cube returns to New York’s esteemed NOSI Music for his third release and first full length, bringing his skilled techno touch to the masses for his new album Central Connection. NOSI Music has developing the young artist for the past seven years and Central Connection is his big breakout release. The album moves beyond the standard collection of dance floor tracks, rather, it is a complete artistic expression that touches on every element of house and techno music from funky to austere. Overall, the album serves as an excellent introduction to this talented emerging artist and a roadmap to a deep, sultry vibe that verges on romanticism – a rarity for this genre and also a way to distinguish this talented young producer from the sea of competitors out there. Dano is also part of a vanguard of talented young musicians emerging for the new dance music hotspot of Central America that is rising to prominence in 2012, due in part to labels such as NOSI Music who have known for years that Central America is the place for quality dance music.
Support from: Richie Hawtin, Sasha Funke, Noah Pred, Andrew Grant, Andrea Ferlin, Daniel Mehes, Holosound, Nicolas van Orten, Flash Brothers, and more.

Just in time for what seems to be the early start to summer comes this fresh new tune from our boys over at Quarterlife Records in NYC. Cuatro Tacos give a funky nu disco take to the single that just came out a few weeks ago for purchase. You can grab the remix free below, and grab the full EP at Beatport HERE.
Beatport release: March 22, 2012. Brooklyn bad-girl Heather M brings it home with this slammajamma release. The original features vocals by Sophia Urista and is co-produced by Jan van Lier and Nayan Lassiter. It’s got a great minor progressive groove and floorshaking bass elements. NYC techno legend Agent Orange gives it that ride-heavy bangin’ treatment you would expect, with some peaky builders thrown in for the berzerk party. Tampa’s Brady Stone rocks an underground UK-style afterhours monster with jackin’ hats and a filtered murky bassline and plenty of hypnotic elements a-la Bedrock. Hungary’s Narcotic Ninjas zap back into the Quarterlife roster with an inventive proggy track that borrows elements from techno and even Goa, slammin’ bassline programming and use of textured delays. Cuatro Tacos drops the indietronic nu-disco remix with dark basslines married with floaty patterns, and a 80-s style synthpeggio and stabby fabric to take you back to the skating rink.
Genres: UK Funky, 808 Bass, Dubstep, Grime, House, Downtempo
Early DJ Support: Danny Tenaglia, AC Slater, Canblaster, Top Billin, Luckybeard, Mumdance, Cousin Cole, Peo De Pitte, Addison Groove, Distal, MikeQ
ABOUT THE RELEASE:
Rock It Science Laboratories returns with a future-focused offering appropriately entitled “Challenger,” the third release in the label’s chronological space-ship themed artist EPs. Fusing elements of UK bass, baile funk, dubstep, and old school electro, American producer Reilly Steel delivers a standout debut release. “Favela Ting” is a baile funk influenced 808 jam one might expect to emerge from Pearson Sound if he were confined to a dark Rio basement. “Boyfriend” marries pitched R&B and hip hop samples with 808s and dubby atmospherics. “Dirty South” lays cheeky vocal samples over 808s, organs, and a lead reminiscent of 80s electro-funk. Meanwhile, MikeQ provides an excellent ballroom remix of Boyfriend, and Kimba and Geoff K offer superb house remixes of Favela Ting and Dirty South, respectively.
ABOUT REILLY STEEL:
Reilly Steel is an up and coming DJ/Producer from San Francisco. With original releases forthcoming on Top Billin and Senseless Records in addition to his Rock It Science Laboratories debut and remixes out on Trouble & Bass (as the winner of the T&B remix contest) and We Do It, he is an artist to watch over the next year. Reacting against a lack of musicality in some forms of dance music but still committed to keeping his sound energetic, Steel incorporates such diverse influences as dubstep, hip hop, footwork, and house into genre-bending productions which are as full of energy as they are forward-thinking.
Enter the beat mistress Danielle Nicole with her dirty fun filled Gypsy Slut EP. Danielle has been traveling the world playing amazing sets while releasing a full catalog of tracks. Equally at home behind the turntables as well as a production mixing board Danielle Nicole is a Beatport charting musician already extremely accomplished!
Gypsy Slut pushes a big bouncy beat alongside some ratcheted bongos and small reversals. The clap pulls you right into a huge slurred, blurred female vocal that isn’t so much a cry as it is a clarion call to ecstasy. It overlays the percussion and brings that brilliant combination of dance and sexual energy to the floor. Slutty music is good to find and here is a tight little number to keep you on your toes. The break will have you begging for more. She delivers, while stealing your drink.
Sugar Plum Fairies (Danielle’s Dancing in Their Heads Mix) makes a more open proposition to your senses. Little voices are inside your head gently coaxing you out to the middle of the dance floor. Giant whooshies float around the room and then in the middle of the track the vocal teases into a hypnotic trance. You can fly. You can! Jumped up and extremely flirtatious this track will rotate your crowd to a frenzy. Pretty in the dark.
Early DJ Support: Armin Van Buurin, Mustard Pimp, Switch, Joachim Garraud, Tony Senghore, Feadz, Markus Schulz, Roy Davis Jr, Malente, Blu Jemz, Murderbot, Plump DJs, Freq Nasty, Laurent Garnier, Adam F, Peo De Pitte & many more.
ABOUT THE RELEASE:
The Explorer EP is aptly named, as Eric employs a variety of sound scapes and production techniques in this offering. The EP is quickly making an impact, having been featured on Beatport’s main page and played on radio from Australia to Italy to Asia. “Hope Springs Eternal” is a tropical house groove that is featured on Discobelle, complete with an edit by house legend Roy Davis Jr. “Let It Go” is an electro banger with pounding drums, vicious stabs, a wobbling bass line and a floor-crushing vocal that appeared in Mustard Pimp’s latest mix. “The End Of Mankind” brings influences from Grime, Juke, and Drumstep together with monstrous sounds and madcap vocal work by Louisahhh!!! and Sharp himself in a tongue in cheek apocalyptic scene.
ABOUT ERIC SHARP:
Eric Sharp heralds diversity and the freedom to express a variety of emotions and moods through his work, regardless of the incessant genre boundaries that are rampant in dance music. The Explorer EP, his debut solo offering on his own label Rock It Science Labs, reflects this sentiment. Prolific in the studio and tireless behind the decks, Eric’s tunes have turned up in sets by a host of internationally renowned DJs. 2011 was a huge year for Eric, with a flurry of collaborations, remixes, and performances at high profile events such as Outside Lands, Amsterdam Dance Event, Decibel Festival, SXSW, Ultra Week, Dim Mak and more. 2012 looks to be even better for Mr. Sharp; watch for him to continue rising.
