Gigo’N’Migo & Jonas Stero – My Heart

Something strongly uplifting and perfect for summer dancefloors has just landed through Holland based label TurnItUp Muzik, and it comes as a collaboration.

Gigo’N’Migo, the popular two-piece from Germany have got together in the studio with house/bass artist Jonas Stero and created “My Heart”, melodic house at its finest. With swooping, majestic drops and those sweeping vocals, it fuses synth-led lead-lines with a rattling bass line – a fusion of sounds and styles.

TRESOR – Never Let Me Go (Spada Remix)

Up for release right now through Ultra Music comes the wicked new remix of TRESOR‘s “Never Let Me Go.” The track has been taken on by rising producer and songwriter Spada from Czech Republic, who really puts his own stamp on an already awesome tune.

With an album lined up for release with Ultra next year, TRESOR himself is at an exciting time in his career. He says of the single – I am extremely excited to finally share ‘Never Let Me Go’ with the world. It was written to be a soundtrack to lifetime great memories and to spark an instant explosion of joy for whoever listens to it. The Spada remix gave the track new life and I hope it brings more life and color to this summer.” 

Spada brings this one to attention by a subtle sense of groove and a pleasing deep house beat, ensuring there is a bit of South Africa brought into the mix with congo drums and infectious guitar riffs.

Bakermat ft. Alex Clare – Living

Bringing his latest release to Ultra Music this week comes the fantastically talented Dutch producer Bakermat, who has just created a new single in the form of “Living.” For this track he has worked with UK vocalist Alex Clare, a particularly soulful artist whose tones fit this tune wonderfully.

“Living” is a catchy, riff-filled house cut with lots of melodic attention to detail. Clare’s tones provide an indie/pop edge to proceedings, and the track moves with fluidity and a large helping of groove.

Junge Junge – Beautiful Girl EP

Emerging from Universal Sweden this week comes the “Beautiful Girl” EP from Junge Junge, the German electronic duo who are amassing plenty of fans with their expressive brand of music.

This four-track collection is a chance to hear some wonderfully put together tracks that have a distinctive Junge Junge sound. Aside from the title track which fans may have heard from its release back in 2014, “Postcards” is our favourite here – a subtle blend of vocals from Kyle Pearce and lilting guitar riffs.

We highly recommend you check out this EP – you can do so here.

Paul T & Edward Oberon – Stay Forever EP

Ensuring they haven’t gone off the radar since exclusively signing with V Recordings earlier this year, D&B power production pairing Paul T & Edward Oberon have just dropped a three-track collection, titled the “Stay Forever” EP.

Known for effortlessly switching up their style with each release, this EP is according to the duo “almost a textbook of how we remain musically versatile, within the context of a consistently soulful sound.”

Opening with the soul-drenched, groove-laden title cut, it becomes progressively heavier throughout, ending with the blistering, bass-shattering sounds of “Fire” to go full circle.

This brilliant set of tunes is now available to purchase here.

FatherDude – Eyes On You (Two Can Remix)

Making its mark on etcetc right now is the brand new EP from talented, innovative producer FatherDude. He puts forward “The Balance”, a varied and superbly produced collection of work – and on it comes an outstanding remix of his single “Eyes On You.”

The track has fallen to Melbourne hailing duo Two Can to put their own spin on, and they have done an awesome job on it. Having already establishing a working relationship thanks to their collaboration with FatherDude on “Double Edge”, Two Can go for an uplifting, progressively melodic remake with their edit, and it blends dynamics and a powerful house beat for optimum results.
