New York’s Tei Shi follows up her monster single “Bassically” with a more downtempo track “Go Slow” this week. “Go Slow” isn’t a “hit” in the traditional sense, but the track carries many more subtle shining qualities. Skittering synths, syncopated percussion and Tei Shi’s delicate vocals wrap this track in a smooth indie dance embrace.


Dutch producer Beauriche teams up with Creamers to unleash a high tempo funky disco house record “Disco Ish.” Available as a free download, “Disco Ish” already counts the support of Hardwell, Tiesto, and Mark Knight to name a few. Let the horns in the track take a hold of you and press play below.


Future R&B artist Roman Austin has released a slow burning soul brimming track “Church (Rollin’)” that is dripping with sex appeal. The track is a tribute track to a weekly Sunday event in Sacramento, California dubbed by the locals as “Church” with Soul/Funk/Classics – take a listen below!


The mighty Octopus Recordings has unearthed a special talent to add to it’s impressive roster of Techno droids with up and coming producer, BARBUTO. Born Christian Barbuto, he’s positioned himself as a staple in the Austin dance community as a respected DJ and event promoter and even though he’s contributed tunes and EP’s for labels like Bush and Raise Recordings, his first solo outing for Octopus is certainly a high point. The “Arcana EP” features two original cuts from BARBUTO and showcases his bottom heavy, driving Techno flair and penchant for moody textures and subterranean atmospheres.

The title cut is seven minutes of relentless, pounding kicks, cavernous reverbs and one muscular bass riff….the aneurysm-inducing breakdowns are nothing to take lightly either. On the b-side, we have “Twilight Imperium,’ an equally sinewy affair thats dripping in epic sweeps and dubby chord stabs. Overall, an impressive outing and certainly one to watch as 2015 unfolds… I can only imagine whats next from BARBUTO and Octopus.

Available 4/6/15


We’re starting the weekend off with a pretty huge premiere.

Stefano Ritteri was born in Rome but now calls London home and he’s amassed some serious releases during the past couple of years. His brilliant new single “You’re My Lover” is released by class A label Glasgow Underground and has already seen support from Annie Mac (who has chosen track to be included in her most played mix for March), Groove Armada, Maxxi Soundsystem, Huxley, Ben Pearce, Waifs & Strays, Doctor Dru, Jacques Renault, Riva Starr, Claptone and many more. It basically sounds like a classic disco party track meets jacking house and it’s something that relentlessly will set dancefloors ablaze.

The remix comes from Danish producer Christian Nielsen who repays Stefano for a remix on his latest single “Do You Mind” with this housed up corker.
