KLANGPLANET Chinatown: Melodically Groove-Deep House

Munich-based producer Frider Mollat started his solo project in 2017 under the name of KLANGPLANET with the intention of creating nostalgically inclined Deep House which offers plenty of funk, groove and soul. If the mix “Chinatown” from the album “Good” is anything to go by, he’s certainly succeeded.

We may have been dancing to drum rhythms since the dawn of time, yet KLANGPLANET still finds a fresh and exotic way for those rhythms to exude a viscerally strong hypnotic command. The multi-layered mix plays with different acoustic and organic textures to offer a soundscape which is masterfully intricate. Each unpredictable note in Chinatown leaves you deeper immersed in the producer’s soulful approach to Indie Deep house. We didn’t need the artist’s bio to tell us he’s been part of the fabric of the music industry for quite some time, it is more than perceptible with how stylistically the polished mix unfolded.

DANDY DEEJAY releases their latest Exhilarated House Mix “I’m Above of the Ground”

https://youtu.be/9z4a7EfUORI

Up and coming Croatian EDM artist DANDY DEEJAY teamed up with female vocalist Junior Paes to create a momentously unrelenting offering of exhilarated House. “I’m Above of the Ground” doesn’t hang around before throwing you headfirst into the potent power of the rhythm and deftly carved out anthemic melodies.

The dynamic beats create the perfect platform for Junior Paes’ naturally strong vocals to rest neatly above and lead you through the aural ecstasy of the single. If you’re looking for sun-soaked summer beats, you won’t go far wrong with I’m Above the Ground which flows with plenty of contemporary appeal whilst retaining plenty of accessibility for instantaneous immersion.

Ltronnika – Escapade: Electronica with a Serving of Sticky Sweet 90s House Nostalgia

“Escapade” is just one of the stunning singles found on up and coming Electronica producer Ltronnika’s debut self-titled 2019 album. While each of the instrumental tracks stands as a testament to the diversity of the artist, the intro track “Escapade” will throw you headfirst into some sticky sweet 90s Dance Nostalgia as you listen to the vibrancy and lack of pretension within the soundscape.

While it may seem like many EDM producers are in competition with each other to create the fanciest soundscapes, Escapade progresses as a persistently euphorically immersive soundscape which never lets the momentum falter, no clever effects, just vibrant feel-good rhythms.

Gezvolt – You Can Dance: Rhythmically Commanding Progressive Tech House

If you asked yourself how progressive Tech House could be, you’d probably find that the answer lies in Gezvolt’s latest mix “You Can Dance”. Instead of just serving 3 minutes of solid bass-heavy beats, You Can Dance pulls you further into the mix by teasing the excitement of the next progression with the clever use of spatial effect. While that’s not rare to hear, it’s rare to hear it work so effectively. The sense of urgency for the momentum to build once more is nothing short of genius.

Rather than giving you a nice and gentle fade out, the track simply ceases to exist, the effect can only be compared to getting whiplash when you’re immersed in motion – then it comes to a sudden halt. You can take that as a testament to the aural command which the Canadian-based producer creates with his mixes.

Lu Roc Melodic – The Funk Way Down: Potently Euphoric House

With Lu Roc Melodic’s single “The Funk Way Down” he took all of the sterility which is commonly found in House music, and replaced it with layers of Funk, Groove, Soul, and elements of Rock to create a well-rounded beat that wouldn’t fail to get an Acid House dancefloor warmed up.

Even though the Chicago-based artist is fresh from his inception, the soundscapes he cooks up wouldn’t allow you to believe it. The clever use of vocal samples allows the electronic beat to lead the way throughout the potently euphoric mix which incorporates bendy acoustic basslines along with some raw guitar arrangements which switch up from a Jangle Pop style progression to angular riffs.

You can check out Lu Roc Melodic’s single The Funk Way Down which is just one of the singles to feature on his second album ‘Dos’ for yourselves by heading over to Spotify now.

Jax Jazer & Maff Forgu – Squeeze Me: High-Octane House

Mexican DJ and producer Jax Jazer has teamed up with Maff Forgu to create a groove-riddled beat which packs in plenty of nostalgic vibes around the contemporary slides of the House mix.

Whilst most vocal samples in House mixes tend to do little but cheapen the electronic progressions, Jazer & Forgu ensured that the hype behind their mix wasn’t compromised. The sporadically placed vocals in the extended mix to Squeeze Me only adds to the indulgent salacity of the beat in the extended mix. House DJs won’t want to look past this rhythmically fresh track to fill a floor. Yet, listening to the drive behind the momentum of the mix at home is just as just as much of an immersive experience.

Daz Lockett – Can’t Live Without Music: Nostalgically Hyped UK House

Daz Lockett has put out quite the number of original mixes this year, yet his latest track “Can’t Live Without Music” packs in the euphoria in a way which tears holes out of the atmosphere. Which is something that you should come to expect from every House anthem, yet not everyone can match the levels of energy which course through the hype of his latest single. As faultless as the beat was, it was easy to feel as though the vocals added nothing to the mix and only took away from the melody. When the vocals truly kicked in the beat became slightly indecipherable, so all of the momentum that had built up in the bridge was quickly lost. Yet, that’s not to say that if you were on a dancefloor and treated to the anthem it wouldn’t move you.

Simetra – All Our Glass Houses: Intricately Experimental Abstract House

If your playlists are missing a touch of Abstract House, look no further than Simetra’s offering of stunning EDM with the latest remix of All Our Glass Houses, originally composed by Imokayiguess.

Throughout the duration of the mix transcendental dreamscapes pass by lingering in the space between the sound which is riddled with intricately experimental breakdowns and hooks. I could have spent hours passing through the progressive sound, sadly All Our Glass Houses is only 4 minutes long. Let’s hope for an album release. The lucidity which is captured in the elastic textures gives the track a perfect transcendental vibe whilst it drifts in and out of ethereal momentum. It was about time someone stepped up and innovated the Techno scene. Simetra’s stylish sensibility is a mix of moody melody and icy impulses infused euphoric emotion.  I can honestly say I was transfixed by every second of the track.

If you’re a fan of the abstract experimental soundscapes you can check out Simetra’s latest remix of All Our Glass Houses on SoundCloud.  You won’t be disappointed by the prodigal approach to the reinventing of Techno.

80Empire – Wherever I Go: Is This What the Perfect Deep House Track Sounds Like?

80Empire’s latest single Wherever I Go will surely unite Old school house fans and contemporary club kids alike. What I usually find with House music, is that the beat would have been perfectly fine to stand alone instead of being defiled with cheesy, horrific vocals and lyrics.

Thankfully Wherever I Go hasn’t drafted in a chipmunk to lay down the lyrics, they’re every bit as sensational as the rounded, thrashing beat that doesn’t falter for a split second, the track is constantly moving towards it’s grounding progression with plenty hooks and drops riddled into the mix to add an extra hint of euphoria to the track. Wherever I Go is as succinct as it is resonant thanks to the infusion of deep house and chill house sounds.

If Wherever I Go dropped in a club, I could almost guarantee that the dancefloor would be swamped. It’s high-vibe swathes of energy also make the track perfect to stick on your summer time playlists.

So if you’re a fan of Deep House, head on over to SoundCloud where you can hear the brand new club hit Wherever I go by 80Empire.

Deltiimo – On My Own Again: Immersive High-Vibe House

Deltiimo (AKA Gary Louca & Bradon Grobler) have just dropped their latest Hard House anthem On My Own Again, it may have been the most energetic hit I’ve heard dropped in 2018. Whilst the beat was absolutely on fire, I couldn’t quite help but feel like the rhyming patterns were a little too obvious in the lyrics to On My Own Again. Rather than the lyrics finding weight in the sentiment it relies too much on the rhyme.

Yet aside from that, no one can dispute the beat isn’t sensational. The EDM inspired breakdowns and drops create a massive amount of pounding, thrashing, swirling energy behind the track. If On My Own Again was left as purely instrumental I have no doubt that I would have felt a much stronger to the beat as that provided more than enough immersive energy to get caught up within. I’d be surprised if On My Own Again didn’t end up at the top of the DJ charts this summer. The House style dance anthem has all the sounds that the Ibiza crowd would jump on.

You can check out Deltiimo’s collaboration with Marley Blandford on Spotify now.
