Parisian duo LOGO have re-released their track ‘Fabrice’ with a whole bunch of exclusive remixes (and a cool bit of artwork) and mixed them all together into a mini-mix that dishes out acid, techno and old school house sounds – Nice! Stream below.
This month is our tenth Kittencast and it comes from radio personality, Black Butter promoter and DJ – Coco Cole. We love Coco’s mix – it’s eclectic with a track listing that’s packed with bass, deep house and techno – there’s even a secret track that’s yet to be released on Black Butter. It features some tracks that we really love on this blog (with Rumah’s ‘Vex’ making it’s second appearance on a Kittencast). We caught up with Coco, so read on to find out some more and stream her mix below…
Who is Coco Cole?
A little concoction born from rural soils, spiced with a 90s upbringing, teenage rebellion sensibilities, lashings of peace and love and pumped by a constant quest for deep, dark, bass driven music.
Craig Richards, Steve Bug, M.A.N.D.Y (Patrik Bodomer) and Terry Francis. If that’s not enough to get you down to fabric London tonight then we don’t know what will. It’s a rather excitable lineup that brings together labels Poker Flat, Get Physical and Oslo Records (from Mannheim, Germany) and will turn the rooms of fabric into a melting pot for techno and house grooves.
Grab your advanced tickets from here, and check out M.A.N.D.Y’s set from November last year – that will definitely get you in the mood!
Black Butter Records is a label that we well and truly love. It’s home to Kidnap Kid, Rudimental and a whole host of other brilliant artists such as My Nu Leng, Clean Bandit and Gorgon City. All of these have that great bass, garage house sound that you associate with Black Butter.
You may have been aware that they have been giving away a load of free downloads over the past few months as part of their ‘Black Butter Spread Love’ campaign (we featured a few of them). Well now the label has packed all these together into a tasty little compilation aptly named ‘Black Butter Spread Love Compilation Vol.2’.
It kicks off strongly with four remixes of Rudimentals ‘Spoons’ – bassy, garage vibes straight from the off . The Woz Remix has to be our favorite of the four as it’s hard to deny this is one hell of a remix with the added melody really making this mix standout.
Bass lovers will enjoy the tracks included from My Nu Leng and 3hrs, with the latter offering a house/bass feel similar to SCUBA. Black Butter has also included two big ass tracks from DEVoloution – house vibes oozing from ‘If you Believe’ and a grimier bassy edge from ‘Listen to the Badman’.
4/5 – All in a great compilation of some hot garage/house/bass tracks. It would be pretty sweet if there was a continuous mix too, although there’s probably a few too many from each artist to make that a worthy addition.
Black Butter Spread Love Volume 2 is available for download here and you can also stream a preview below.
Officially the first new artist to be signed to Apollonia, Daze Maxim releases his ‘Farbfilm’ EP. The self-titled opener is a beast of a track packed with plenty of warping bass, melodic synth notes and enough hi-hats to keep any party going. Farbfilm also gets the remix treatment from Soundorom himself, adding deeper percussion, sporadic high hats and some hypnotizing notes that give it a tech twist. Maxim has also included minimal track ‘Tableara’ which will make this EP will appeal to techno and house lovers alike.
Tsuba have just uploaded a stream of their latest vinyl only release – an EP from rising star Jamie Trench. Underground house is what this 3 track EP is all about, with each track maintaining the bassy, jumpy soulful sound but with some deep and grooving twists. Lead track ‘Cream’ is the top trump of this EP in our view. What do you think? Stream below.
House, house, house. That’s the sound of this Friday Set Selector. Groove Armada uploaded this just yesterday to their soundcloud (with free DL) and it’s already had nearly 5,000 listens… feel good vibes!
