Today we have some of the best deep and tech house tracks of the past week…
303Lovers is the spawn of a musical design by Luigi Rocca and Manuel De La Mare. Rooted in three tiers of electronic music, those being tech house, techno and electronica, the label symbolises a soundscape that has melted away boundaries, ventured into crossover and retained underground status, whilst continually proliferating its musical direction to ensure it is on the cutting edge of electronic music.
Spanish sensation Juarez is back on Motive for release #2, showcasing seemingly endless sides of his creative potential. Title track ‘Tell Me’ is a chunky yet laid back deep house cut with smooth chords and a silky, catchy vocal Juarez cranks the funk dial on B Side track ‘What I Do’, blending Latin percussion, gorgeous keys and a throbbing baseline. A very well rounded EP from a well-rounded producer! What more could we ask for?
It’s the return of our friend and Ibiza resident DJ, Antton. Having spent the last few month getting the Beachstar in San Antonio Bay in Ibiza ready Antton now drops a cool summery disco EP. 2 tracks from Antton himself and then for the last track he teams up with fellow Ibiza resident DJ, Affani who is riding high on the traxsource & beatport charts after being supported by Carl Cox on Carl’s live streams.
With support from DJ John Digweed, Eli Brown and Darren Emerson on his previous release Tromino is back with ‘Freedom,’ a superbly deep but driving and dynamic track on the divide between house and techno. There is real soul in the synths and the crashing hits add the sort of rawness and energy that makes the track really standout. Next is ‘Sliver Lines,’ which has a more dubby feeling and rolling drums that keep on pulling you in. Razor sharp hits add bite, while rippling chords disappear off to the horizon. Tense but hypnotic, it’s another high grade musical weapon. With these essential cuts, Tromino continues to build his own vital sound and label.
Welsh wonders, This Culture are back on their own label SA1 with ‘Destiny’ The duo delivers a forward-thinking feel-good tech-house influenced track. Pumping grooves, a joyful piano and soaring arpeggiated synth deliver the goods with a lush female vocal taking you on a real melodic tech journey. Bravo This Culture! Deadly.
