This podcast from Maxxi Soundsystem has got our feet tapping and wishing we weren’t sat at work waiting for the weekend to begin. It’s a smooth mix of deep and energetic tunes perfect as a weekend warm up and it’s the last 2013 instalment of his ‘In Their House’ podcast. Enjoy.
2013 has been another amazing year for Maceo Plex. He’s one of the hottest DJs and producers on the planet it seems people just can’t get enough of his dark and sexy blend of house & techno. Here at TTK he’s known as Maceo Sex.
We’ve caught Maceo a handful of times over this year and he never ceases to amaze us. His track selection and genre dipping style, making full use of his alter ego ‘Maetrik’, makes him a unique and driving force on the club scene. To celebrate all things Plex/Sex, Mixmag have made him the star of their December cover CD with a mix that sums up his style and performances of this year perfectly. Stream below.
Marino Canal is a name that you may not be familiar with. He hasn’t had many releases out yet he’s making his Fabric debut this weekend on the mighty Room One rig. He’s an artist that the club’s founder Keith Reilly is really passionate about and going from this mix we can see why. It’s a glitchy, minimal journey of minimal techno, showcasing Marino’s taste - perfect Friday listening.
Marino Canal is playing Fabric this Saturday along with Laura Jones, Guti & Craig Richards. Tickets here.
High On Tracks, is a YouTube channel which promotes young, upcoming and/or undiscovered musical talent. After a particularly busy week at TTK HQ their first guest mix was music to our worn out ears. From Brit producer Lumba Lumba it starts off with some nice mellow stuff then progresses into some sweet garage and house all with a bit of an r’n'b/hip hop vibe goin’ awn! It’s damn gorgeous. Grab the free DL below, sit back and celebrate that it’s friggin’ Friday!
It’s been a great year for Tough Love and we’ve certainly been keeping an eye on them and seeing their name pop up more and more. Last week they featured on Ricky Simmonds’ The Sound of Deep House radio show on Ministry of Sound Radio (catch it 5-7pm Thursdays). There’s a little interview at the beginning, where they talk about their big and bouncy sound, followed by 30 minutes of…erm big and bouncy sounds of course! It’s gooood mmm. If 2013 was great for the London lads, 2014 is going to be massive! We’re Tough Love(ing). Free DL below.
