Coming hot out of Australia, the Pelvis team just released their second volume of DJ Tools. Housed in a wicked sleeve brandishing a curved screw just like volume one, I'm very excited to play with DJ Haus's Rushing. It's openness has had me nodding a lot lately debating how I'd throw this in for the use of sexy and sexy alone. Along the same vein but with different intention is DJ Dre's Respect, just one of those where you instantly can imagine a collective get down. Keeping on because there's undeniable toughness in my heart of hearts I'll leave you with some Soul of Hex and the tune "Hardchord" to get you pumped for the weekend.
Other than that I'm gonna keep this week pretty short with shouts to JP for his recommends with the Pots n' Kettles label recently. Holler at ya atmospheric fools later!
Sensing that the upcoming summer is gonna need a big tune that will be played by everyone, everywhere Cratebug's Box Music 4 is here! Speaking of bangers, I recently found this bowl of chunks from luly.B. It really has been all about the floorfillers recently, but this from Destrada has been totally blammin' my ham - every single track! Personally, i'm enjoying the reemergence of rave/hardcore sounds (for now), and so Bone Sucka from Pangaea is stimulating the nostalgia bone in a very satisfying way.
Y'all know it's bangers only at Cosmic HQ right? Well either way, CC:Disco knows a thing or two about that field, and thankfully blessed us with a whole hour's worth of heat in her mix for DGTL in Amsterdam this past week. Her track selection, mixing, energy (and them backspins!), hoo' lawd, just too perfect, watch *most* of that one here. Rollin' with the mixes, Project Pablo brought out some serious scorchers last month for his DJ set at Sugar Mountain, from a slew of unreleased and forthcoming tracks (Napoletana off his upcoming EP for Technicolour is so sweet) to 90s house to RnB, the mans got styles for days. For me, the peaks came at the beginning, Echoes and Instruments is a perfectly hypnotic opener, but the mysterious cut that starts around the nine minute mark just does it for me. I've been smashing that muh fuggin replay button all week, funky synth bass, ice cold sax lead, and classic rave stabs, I'm in heaven y'all. Hopeful that one gets freed from white label prison as soon as possible. Aside from those, I was pretty stoked to see HOD Stash's 3rd release get a repress recently, some nice sample based reworks from "mysterious" producers, peep that one over here. I'm outtie, till next week friendos!
