3 Tracks For The End of Summer

Summer is coming to an end. I know, I am sorry, but it is. That’s OK though, because here are two awesome summer tracks to help you relive your favorite moments.

Trevor Loveys – Stay In Love: upbeat, warped, chopped-up-sushi disco house force-fed by the near-cheesy vocals

Hot Natured – Forward Motion: bouncy, head-bobbing deep house led by strong vocals

Azari & Ill – Hungry For The Power (Jamie Jones Remix): dreamy and bouncy, sun is about to go down sing-along, 2011 Ibiza anthem

Shifted Gives Us Pacific Blue

Shifted, the ever-mysterious UK techno producer, has just released a new 12″, Industry under the moniker Pacific Blue. I’m really enjoying the deep and hypnotic dub techno. Check it out:

Industry Part I
Industry Part II

If you’re enjoying it, check out his CLR Podcast here.

Dettmann From The Depths

“Happy music is easy to consume, you can just put yourself in the music and see what happens. It’s passive, you don’t have to do anything for it. With techno, it is not only dark but also very subtle and intense. It can make you lose your mind, make you freak totally out.”

2 Reasons I Secretly Love Mondays

Ok maybe 2 really doesn’t sound like much (especially if you’re already aware of what I’m about to say), but they remain awesome: the RA Podscast Series and the CLR Podcasts.

RA (Resident Advisor), my favorite music snob hangout, releases a podcast mix every week: from up & coming to established artists, from house to techno to drum & bass – always something to tickle your ears. This week features German deep house master Kassem Mosse.

If you’re looking for your techno fix, Chris Liebing has you covered with his CLR Podcast series (get used to “Yes it’s Monday again…”). Featured mix this week from Sigha.

Echocord Colour Records

I only just discovered this Danish dubby-techno label yesterday with the release of Skudge’s First Observation EP. Colour is a sublabel of Echocord Records, focusing primarily on the dance floor. Here’s some standouts for me:

Skudge – Surplus
Skudge – Void
Sebastien San – Darker Shades
Mike Dehnert – Pompage
Mike Dehnert – Thermique
Luke Hess – The Problem of Decay (Greed Affects Us All)
Pattern Repeat – Ofetriade
Mikkel Metal – Kenton (Marcel Dettmann Remix)

Paul Kalbrenner’s Essential Mix

Arguably Berlin’s most popular DJ, Paul Kalbrenner has been charming the masses with his upbeat-stadium-techno. If you didn’t catch his essential mix nearly 2 weeks back, definitely take a listen. The uplifting melodies are sure to get you through the week.
