TRAFFIC SIGNS & JAKE THE RAPPER | COOKIE JAR (POKER FLAT)

cookie jar

This cheeky track will have you strutting about singing about cookie jars. It’s from Steve Bug’s playful Traffic Signs moniker, back after a 10 year hiatus. Vocals and attitude come courtesy of Berlin legend Jake The Rapper. Joyce Muniz’s remixes strip down the vocals for a darker dancefloor ready take. A fun, slightly retro sounding track with lots of personality. Could lend itself well to all sorts of remixes we thinks.

ARTHUR OSKAN | LOVEBUG (CITY FOX)

Screen Shot 2015-02-19 at 22.06.26

This track is stunning – oozing with warm melodic goodness it gives you a right big euphoric hug.  The latest release from ARTHUR OSKAN on CITY FOX is 2-piece EP but this track with its delicate melodic elements and thumping bass line is my favourite and will pick you right up.  It’s just a shame this clip isn’t long enough!

(you can grab the full release on Beatport though)

PENTATONES | KARMA GAMES (STEVE BUG RETOUCH)

karma games

STEVE BUG has teamed up with rising stars PENTATONES, a four-piece electronica band hailing from Germany. He’s remixed ‘Karma Games’ a track taken from their album ‘Ouroboros’ which is due out early this year. An extended moody, lusty intro builds the atmosphere before kicking into a deep tech groove. Vocalist Delhia de France’s vocals are smouldering and utterly seductive with a dash of sweet-quirkiness. Bug layers the melodies creating a hypnotic emotive vibe that works oh so well with the gawgeous vocals. A proper eyes-closed-swaying-in-a-trance kinda track. Dreamy.
