Oski – Kid Chrome EP

Making a real statement as the fourth release to be dropped on Quality Goods Records so far, comes the “Kid Chrome” EP. This collection has been created by none other than bass/trap prodigy Oski, who originally sprung to attention with an array of explosive bootlegs a while back.

Having fully caught the attention of QGR boss and production talent UZ, Oski now brings his latest EP to attention. “Kid Chrome” stands at four tracks in length, each offering signature bass energy and superb technical skill. Our standouts are the blistering “Super Hot” and the more chilled out “Flex” – both seriously strong in their own right.

All four tracks are available to grab here.

Chelsea Cutler – Wake Up (Remixes)

Just out and available to cop through Ultra Music is the new pair of remixes that have been created around Chelsea Cutler’s “Wake Up.” The exciting singer/songwriter talent has had her single taken on by two separate artists for this stunning release.

Up first is the Sondr offering, a smoothly lilting version that evokes memories of a hazy summer with its softly swaying beat and those awesome vocals. Cuebrick turns this one around with more of a progressive energy and stronger rhythmical emphasis, ensuring that you feel uplifted after the first few moments.

Bag this EP here.

Tommie Sunshine & Halfway House – Can’t Get Enough (Remixes)

Arriving through Ultra Music this week is the “Can’t Get Enough” remix EP. Containing six stellar remakes of Tommie Sunshine and Halfway House‘s single of the same name, there are some big names on this collection that will definitely create a buzz around this one.

Our standouts have to be the bass-heavy Pegboard Nerds and the completely contrasting, chilled out sounds of the Sunset Child edit, but there is a lot to be said for the Boots N Pants version which is full of power and energy. Other contributors include Flatdisk, Usica and John Kim.

Get your hands on it here.

M1 – Emotions (Remixes)

Available right now as a Beatport exclusive is the “Emotions” EP – which has been dropped via Vicious Recordings. The single itself has been produced by M1, and it sits neatly alongside a string of remixes.

Firstly, you must check out the original – which is a real treat. M1 is a producer who is becoming in demand, and “Emotions” is superbly made with plenty of good vibes. Remixes are ably provided by the likes of Press Play, Jolyon Petch and Groovefore & ADHD amongst others, and we thoroughly recommend the whole package.

Get it here.
