18 year-old up-and-coming DJ/producer Jamie Mesia, better known as Skreamz, presents his latest, fantastic release ‘Pursuits’. Proving no stranger to the studio, this tropical deep house original showcases the prodigious Spanish artist’s vast production talents. Perfect for the summer, with tropical instrumentation in abundance, ‘Pursuits’ is ideal for those days in the sun.

The intro features shimmering piano chords with police sirens and speeding car samples paying tribute to the apt name: ‘Pursuits’. Shortly, the pace is picked up in a stunning house-style drop with glockenspiel lead overtones complimenting a brass underlay and superb percussion.

Into a break down where the beautiful lead melody continues lightly in the highs. A most pleasant surprise lies in store during the back of the second drop, as Skreamz suddenly increases the energy and introduces more percussion in a highly danceable switch up variant of the drop. Simply outstanding creativity.

The various sections are fused together seamlessly and the mixing is on point. ‘Pursuits’ sounds lively and dynamic on a range of sound systems, furthering our belief that Skreamz really has what it takes to go a very long way in this industry. We look forward to keeping up to date with his future releases as his exciting career unfolds.

Talented up-and-coming 17-year old producer SIMIC presents his recently released remix of Cheat Codes’ hugely popular summer track ‘No Promises’. With the American DJ group’s original track receiving wide acclaim, following its release in March on Parlophone – Warner Bros, this was a truly excellent choice of track to remix.

SIMIC shows off his studio potential in this rework, the breakdowns utilising the original vocal of Demi Lovato and the group’s own Trevor Dahl, to full effect. Lush piano chords and light percussion underpin the infamous vocal toplines. Towards the drops, momentum picks up and the tension subtly builds.

The drop sections to SIMIC’s remix themselves, are of a well crafted, danceable house style nature, making his version highly adaptable and appealing to DJ’s. The lead synth through the drops is particularly well constructed and the transitions back into the more down-tempo breakdowns are smooth and flowing.

This hugely listenable remix of Cheat Codes massive summer track ‘No Promises’ delivers a unique take on the original track. This is a track that house and pop fans alike will enjoy, and is certainly one to add to that summer playlist or download for your upcoming set.

With a string of fantastic remixes on his Soundcloud page already, this is evidently a competent producer enjoying his sound and translating his ideas well through his DAW. We look forward to hearing what the future brings for SIMIC.

Swedish producer Ted Jorgensen, aka Van Heden presents his dance rework of Mary J. Blige’s classic R&B track ‘Family Affairs’. Adding his own house-esque signature to successfully remix this track as a club thriller, Heden gets our attention as an up-and-coming producer to keep an eye on.

Simplistic plucks before drum loops and FX kick off this remix. Tension builds with the famous Blige vocal stem woven over the top. Synths and other instrumentation enter the mix as Heden demonstrates his studio skills with smooth filtering and manipulation of the vocal between drop sections and down-tempo break segments.

Thanks to careful sample selection and driving percussive elements, balanced with a solid house kick drum, Van Heden treats listeners to a rework that is highly danceable. This is certain to grab people’s ears in the clubs and will appeal to house DJ’s.

Talented Australian producer Ash Parker releases his incredible new single ‘YTB’, one for real house music fans to get their teeth into. Featuring stunning sound design and an enchanting, flowing style that pulls the listener in and takes them on an evolving journey spanning 5:53 of house music heaven.

Parker’s signature runs through this original, with its tech vibe smoothly switching the energy levels up and down as it flows from your sound system. There are so many stunning inclusions in this record with a slightly dark side to it, from deep male vocal samples to multiple and complex fx. The highlight however is the sheer power and energy generated from incredible sound design through the synths that make ‘YTB’ really stand out.

Obviously no stranger to the studio, Parker has clearly spent a long time honing his production skills and the effort is paying off in dividends now. This track is highly valuable to DJ’s searching for that scorching track at 3am under the club lights.

Aspiring New York minimal tech house producer Drissou, fresh off last months release ‘Just Keep Going’, reviewed here on, makes his return to the tech house scene with his latest track ‘Basic’. The released version is an extended mix, making it appealing to DJ’s for their sets.

‘Basic’ typifies Drissou’s signature sound, with emphasis placed on the use of percussion, which drives the track. The main groove in ‘Basic’ comes from a bass synth hook loop, well crafted and bouncy, providing the detail in this original.

Drissou states that only 12 stems were used during the production process, and he makes maximum use of such a minimal project with the different elements fused together well. Here we have five minutes that minimal house and tech house fans will find thrilling.

Drissou’s Soundcloud page states ‘non stop rhythm and drums’ and ‘beats that will keep you moving forward in life’, and he isn’t wrong. The focus of his production is, without doubt, on the percussive elements of house music and he has this skill owned, with the various loops and samples sounding crisp and punchy.

As avid fans of minimal and tech house, we are excited to see more from this stateside producer in the future and look forward to keeping up-to-date with his career, as it unfolds. Check out Drissou – Basic (Extended Mix), available to download for free, here:


Just when you didn’t think house music could get any better, in step rising Italian stars Antonio Fusaro DJ and Andrea Vignola, with their breathtaking future house track ‘I Wanna Dance’. This Beatport selling track has already received support from non other than Don Diablo and Dyro and is one of the finest house tracks you will hear today.

Released last week on Bimbomix records, ‘I Wanna Dance’ does exactly that. Break sections with mystical melodies from in a filter build into highly energetic drop sections, the order of this track. This is a collaboration that has clearly been worked on for a while from two talented producers, with the result being a truly stunning track.

The highlight of ‘I Wanna Dance’ are the drop sections. From contrasting breaks, where the listener gets a chance to catch their breath, the drops are high energy and very danceable, making this track great for the clubs.

This is one of the highest energy house tracks released this year. The stunning thing is, this energy is not achieved through an overload of drums and loops, but simply by sound design alone. Ferocious future house style synths are assisted by a synthesised whipping effect, mixed perfectly into the drops, that drives this track and generates huge amounts of energy.

Set to be a big hit this year, and already being well received, ‘I Wanna Dance’ is one to add to your playlist or record box immediately. We look forward to tracking this release and seeing what the future holds for Antonio Fusaro DJ and Andrea Vignola. Check out I Wanna Dance (original mix) – Antonio Fusaro & Andrea Vignola, here:


Impressive up-and-coming Italian talent Valerio Bonfardeci, aka bVd, is one to watch this year as he drops his incredible reboot of Alice Deejay’s old school anthem ‘Better Off Alone’. Leaving his own future house style mark on a classic, he utilises the original melody lines and vocal, but everything else is from scratch here.

Taking such a famous and much loved original track and transforming it into something that the modern house audience can enjoy is no simple task. Yet bVd makes it sound easy, with his finished product sounding utterly stunning.

This remix begins with an atmospheric manipulation of the well known vocal topline floating over a carefully crafted piano chord sequence. A smooth riser takes us into a future house drop section, making full use of the original melody. There is a flowing and dance floor friendly sense of rhythm in the drop sections that injects energy into this remix.

As the main breakdown hits, you realise that you are thoroughly enjoying this record. The break sections are dazzling as the vocal takes you immediately back to the year 2000 when the first version was released.

In a scene that sees an increasing trend of remixes and variations of different tracks, it is  refreshing to find such an outstanding rework. bVd’s mixdown is impeccable, sounding clean and crisp. The vocal section which defines the track is loud, but does not drown out the instrument layering and blends well into his track.

We are excited to see what the future holds for this talented producer and look forward to bringing you his future releases here first on You just can’t miss this incredible reboot, available kindly as a free download. Check out Alice Deejay – Better Off Alone (bVd Remix), here:


Los Angeles producer Chuck Shadow presents ‘Rastafari’, just one of three superb tracks that compile his recently released ‘Dub House EP’. This up-and-coming talent shows he is completely at home in the studio with a great collection of house tracks that form the EP, epitomised by the tantalising sound of Rastafari, which was released on Independence Day.

Chuck imparts his own incredible, unique sound on this original, which would fit into the house music genre box, but offers something a little different. Reggae vocals form the main theme here, but there are an eclectic range of sounds at play through a fantastic 3:44, including dubstep and bass house shots and synths.

The intro is melodic and house-esque with brass sounds underpinning male reggae rasta-style vocals. This works smoothly into the first drop, where the groove of ‘Rastafari’ is immediately evident. It is at this point you realise you are listening to something special. Chuck’s drops are some of the best you will have heard. They are flowing, well mixed and very danceable. They would fit well in a range of settings, from the club or festival to a summer pool party.

In the down-tempo main break, more brass sections form the melodies, sounding funky and smooth out of the speakers. The transition back into second drop is slick and effortless, a tribute to an incredible mixdown. The mastering is also noteworthy, with this track sounding sublime on a range of systems, from an iPhone speaker to a club system.

One to immediately download for your set, or pop in your summer playlist, ‘Rastafari’ is a treat for the ears and incredibly likeable. It has something for everyone, from house to dubstep enthusiasts, with a groove that makes you want to move. You just know this track is going to be huge.

We are enjoying Chuck Shadow’s Dub House EP and are looking forward to following this talented producer, as his career unfolds. Astonishingly, this EP is available free, a nice gift to the music world. You can stream Chuck Shadow – Rastafari through all portals, or check it out here:
