1. Symplx – BackToDat
Subspec has just released its first 12″ EP, ‘The Power of Hydrogen’ a collection of three hefty acid tracks by Jay Zoney, Hardfloor, Symplx and Countered. The list of DJs support this release read like a who’s who of techno idols – Laurent Garnier, Derrick Carter, Ben Sims, Gary Beck and Len Faki! We’ve picked Symplx’s to share– relive the acid days and ‘ave it large.
2. Mr. Belt & Wezol – Luv Thang (Original Mix)
Mr. Belt & Wezol are a dj-duo from Amsterdam that produce and play UK/future (deep) house. At its core Luv Thang has a driving old school melody with punchy beats and brilliant use of vocal samples which all combine to create a pounding house track.
3. Waiting For Tonight (Bobby Love Remix)
We’re a fan of the odd pop remix here at TTK and Bobby Love’s remix of J-Lo’s ‘Waiting for tonight’ melts through the cheese with its fat bassline and added rhythm.
4. Le Dom – Citadel
Firing synths and chopped beats is what this track from Le Dom is all about. It’s a double dose of bass and techno in just the right proportions. The track is released as part of ‘Citadel’ EP on Dred Collective.
5. Hugo Bianco – Taurus (Alberto Ruiz Remix)
This remix of Hugo Bianco’s track ‘Taurus’ is taken from his latest EP on Stick Recordings. If you like dark, melodic and emotive techno then you’ll love this.
6. Toyboy & Robin – All Night Through
Having been championed by the likes of B.Traits, MistaJam, Toddla T, Bondax and Karma Kid, this deep duo are making a name for themselves. ‘All night through’ comes from their Better Places EP set for release on Chase & Status’ label MTA. It’s got a deep melodic feel to it and a bit of a Dusky edge. We like.
7. Horror Stories – Flower Power
West London based Horror Stories debut single ‘Flower Power‘ brings together UK Bass and jungle. As well as a pounding bass melody, the track has elements of soft chords and of course a jumping jungle beat.
8. Dinnerdate – Going On
This track from Dinnerdate is packed with warm house sounds and a garage edge, giving it a bit of an early Disclosure or Mercury feel. It’s available as a free download too. Love.
9. Daughter – Get Lucky (Shadow Child VIP)
Shadow Child is a firm TTK favourite, we love his bassy sound, his essential mix for BBC Radio 1 was huuuuge and his Rinse FM show is packed with tasty tunes. So it’s no wonder that we’re in love with his latest remix of Daughter’s cover of Daft Punks ‘Get Lucky’ cover (as heard in his essential mix). It’s fair to say tracks don’t get as unique as a remix of a cover and this is golden with daughters soft, ghostly vocals bringing the familiar lyrics of one last years biggest songs and Shadow Child adding one hell of a melodic bass line and some euphoric synth notes. FREE DOWNLOAD TOO.
10. Arkon Fly – Through The Fire
What better way to close off this playlist than with a soulful house track from London based duo Arkon Fly. This is their debut single and will be released April 21st on garage label Locked On. There is such a feel good electronic feel to this track and some damn catchy vocals. What a debut track!
