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.

Craig Francis to release his debut single “Yours…Forever Yours…”

Yours Forever Yours is a power-packed soothing song that’s rooted in a mixed musical genre of house trance with a slight touch of pop and electronica. One of the most spectacular thing you’ll notice about this song is its scintillating beats which somewhat borrowed a cue from the French dance music legends, Daft Punk.

Craig Francis took his first leap into creating and composing music, and the result  is what we have here “Yours…Forever Yours”. The track ebbs and flows with a pop-music twang that early Daft Punk lacks, with the song also dropping into a darker and a more bass heavy groove that has clear influences from Enrique Iglesias, Linkin Park and Justin Timberlake. The artist has also had comparisons drawn with Justice, Gorillaz and Daft Punk. This of course showed that some of the aforementioned artist has a little bit of influence in his music creativity.

This is a very cool jam that’s poignant in every sense. Emotional sincerity shines through this track. His assurance of his musical prowess is evident in the limited number of melodically-conacious artist that’s featured on the song.

Breaking Down Musical and Emotional Walls

Proving that it is never to late to make a name in music, Lompy T, aka Russell Crawley has returned to the creative affray and his latest release is a glitchy, chilled and imaginative slice of dance floor groove. At 17 a career in music and particularly music production seemed out of reach but the advance of technology and affordability of studio software has meant that now with a few more years and a little bit more money, he has been able to meet and embrace his career half way. The Walls of My heart is a testament to the fact that you should never give up on your dreams and that you can always find a way.

Blending ambient electronica and angelic vocals, the song embraces some skittering beats, glitchy and hypnotic production and some serious beats, wandering between the conventional and the trippy as it wanders to its conclusion, it plays with inventive dynamics and chilled after party vibes. But more than anything it is a statement that whatever the circumstances, whatever is standing in your way, there is always a solution and the accessibility of the modern digital age means that we now have a whole wave of musicians, producers, singers and creatives who in an early age would have been denied the chance to contribute to the musical collective.

Vision Four 5 – Take Me with You feat Kate Tomlinson: They’re Back With Vengeance.

Vision Four 5 dropped their new dance floor track on the 27th of October 2017. It’s got us a little bit excited. Sure, the internet is swarming with artists that promise to be the next greatest thing and follow in the footsteps of the likes of Daft Punk, Eric Prydz & Darude, but Vision Four 5 is a delight that I can honestly say I’ve never heard the likes of before. They’re a delectable mix of Techno, House & Electronica, their recipe for musical creativity have created music that’s cross generational that everyone can enjoy.

They’re a live dance music act from Brisbane, Australia who have become the masters when it comes to interactive video technology to provide a totally immersive experience in their shows. The band have been around since 1990, and it’s honestly a crime that they’re still a relatively unheard of collective of musicians. Whilst they’ve achieved notoriety in Australia with a multitude of radio hits; their splendour is relatively un-sampled across the pond.

If you’re looking for transgressive beats & stunning imagery look no further than their latest single. It encapsulates all of the dancefloor euphoria that they’ve invoked whilst they’ve been on tour with their music. They consider touring an essential part of the writing process in their refreshingly innovative way of making their adrenaline fuelled music.

Their choice to include the Sydney based singer, songwriter & DJ Kate Tomlinson in their latest hit allowed their music to delve into a new era of music. Kate has a delectably resonant power in her vocals with the ability to melodically resonate over the layered harmonics.

Dance Music For Night Creatures

Before gothic music took a strange turn into the dystopian, cyber-punk sub-genre of metal that it became, it was something very different. As the punk barriers where kicked down, what came charging through was not a horde of year zero guitar slingers but clubland kids in strange make-up, clutching broken keyboards which they rewired to their creative will. And so in the bright dawn of the post-punk era this strange new breed made strange new music built of keys and drum machines and driven by dance beats rather than big guitars.

In many ways Broken X’s Never Abiding feels like one possible pathway from that scene which was never fully explored. That generic gene splicing of dark thoughts and vibrant beats, futuristic visions and primal urges, the myriad possibilities of a gleaming future mixed with the creeping doom of the past that juxtaposition of technology and drive and its dark musical underbelly. Broken X capture all this elegantly and on the strength of this mercurial and exploratory track, checking out their latest ep, Zombies of The Night is, as they say, a no brainer.

Ellipsis – One More Night – A Driven Musical Project With A Spontaneous And Experimental Attitude.

Ellipsis is an eclectic musical project with a truly unique approach to its sound and creative vision. One of the most remarkable qualities of the act’s tone is certainly their ability to explore a wide range of ideas and genres, embedding elements and influences from different styles into their own sound: from electronic dance music to rock and everything in between.

Ellipsis is currently making waves in the music scene with a brand new release, One More Night. The song stems from an older idea, but it comes across as a fresh and diverse composition that highlights the artist’s songwriting dexterity.

Ellipsis surely has a special way to go about layering all the elements in a mix. The artist managed to create a powerful and diverse arrangement that feels modern, yet classic at the same time!

Peter Czak releases straightforward deep house track ‘Before The Rise’

If ever there was an argument for doing away with dance music labels, Peter Czak is probably it. It splices strong beats with chilled musical passages, a dance ethic with after party vibes and balances contemporary club culture with future possibilities.

Before The Rise is a straightforward and unfussy song; it does what it sets out to do with a minimum of fuss, that is, build a clean-limbed and eminently danceable track, one that meanders within pathways of its own choosing. But even with the simplest of lines, most easily recognisable of beats and very few extraneous details or musical embellishments it still manages to find somewhere new to take dance music. House, chilled techno, downtempo, Nu-Disco, ambient, trance? Don’t worry about it…just dance!
