BlackSilence – Fill Me Up ft Niki Darling: Groove-Deep Tech House

If you missed out on the chillingly euphoric Dance mix “Fill Me Up” from BlackSilence, it’s our pleasure to introduce you to the momentous floorfiller.

The Manchester-based music producer perceptibly knows a thing or two when it comes to lacing a mix with efficacious deep grooves and entrancing Techno build-ups. Expect plenty of snaring hooks throughout the duration of the single as BlackSilence proves that he knows just how to rhythmically arrest the listener.

Niki Darling’s vocals were the perfect fit for Fill Me up. Such a high-octane ecstasy-dripping soundscape was born for her powerfully soulful momentum-amplifying vocals.

George Beck – 90s/High: Nostalgic 90s Vocal Techno/House

George Beck dropped a music video for his song “90s/High” earlier this year. The title track couldn’t have been more self-explanatory: The nostalgia for the 90s rave dance scene kicks in vividly.

And the dance scene isn’t the only item that George Beck sings about in this old-school acid house/techno anthem. He is reciting his lyrics in an Underworld-style delivery, recollecting all the good stuff from the nineties, the clubbing and this song maker’s carefree youth and dominance of free will – representing a whole generation of people for that matter. Realizing that this is a contemporary recording is quite odd; the same goes for the VHS-imagery music video.

Naturally, this is a creation which shall generously give joy to people that dearly treasure these images, this mood, this lifestyle, even though this spiritual wealth might have been transformed to nothing more than a block of memories. Kudos to George Beck for blessing us with some precious name-dropping; everyone who was there/familiar with it all, will acknowledge and instinctively smile, for the rest there’s Wikipedia.

Thank you George Beck. This is “90s/High”, get nostalgic here

Ian Edson – Elevate: Euphorically Sonic House

With their latest mix “Elevate”  up and coming LA-based producer Ian Edson has given Tech heads another reason to include his House mixes on their playlists.

The high-octane sonic floor filler utters the simple mantra of ‘Elevate’ over the simple, yet extremely effective danceable rhythm. The anticipation is set for the euphoric breakdowns by inventive uses of phasers creating drawn-out caustic sweeping effects throughout the mix.

Elevate may be slightly darker and harsher than your average House mix, but it still does exactly what it says on the tin.

Darth Athena – Plasmagoria: A Tech House Playlist Essential

Breaking Tech House artist Darth Athena dropped yet another sublime mix “Plasmagoria” onto the airwaves in November 2019.

Their ability to blend shimmering bright transcendental textures with harsh smacks of bass in a constantly evolving House mix is like nothing we’ve heard from any other electronic artist this year. It comes as no surprise that the Atlanta-based producer finds his inspiration from an array of sources, from darkwave to fantasy soundtracks to RnB.

Plasmagoria is a mould-breaking melting pot of danceable euphoric rhythm. From sonic blasts to tribal rhythm you’ll find all that and more in Plasmagoria. It doesn’t just offer high-octane energy, but captivating high-octane emotion too.

GARRETT PAKNIS – Body; Salaciously Danceable Electro Pop

Any fans of Peaches are going to want to check out the latest single from Berlin-based artist GARRETT PAKNIS. “Body” is a salaciously danceable feat of Electro Pop which will gladly remind you of just how much sex appeal can be infused into a mix.

The snaring percussion and the futuristic synth notes create the perfect for GARRETT PAKNIS’ vocals and lyrics which consistently whisper carnality into Body.

I can only imagine how well this track would go down in Berghain or the Kit Kat club. Similarly, there are sure to be plenty of listeners in the UK who will want to surrender their own rhythmic pulses to this hypnotically lustful vibe.

Jessy Poncho – Bob Yo Head: Darkly Rhythmic Tech House

Jessy Poncho

You can practically feel the danceable euphoria drip from the latest mix “Bob Yo Head” by Tech House up and coming producer Jessy Poncho.

Even though the indulgently solid rhythms are danceable, they also possess a slightly darker tone than your average House mix. The ominously magnetic feel to Bob Yo Head should go down incredibly well with any fans of Billie Eilish. It’s filthy, it’s progressive, and it stands as a testament to Jessy Poncho’s ability to arrange experimental beats in a way which speaks to your own rhythmic pulses.

They found the perfect tempo to Bob Yo Head. The momentum is constant and perpetually in flux, but it also incorporates a subtle ambient vibe which makes the beat impossibly easy to hook into.

“Drowning” is the latest original mix from up and coming Australian Techno producer Sebastian van Lieven. With Drowning, he laid down immersive layers of sound to create a progressive mix which will have you hooked with each of the seamless transgressions of sound.

Rather than rushing to the momentum, the euphoria is teased until your mid-way through the colossal 10-minute mix, yet one thing which remains a constant is the rhythmic feel behind the single. With Jackson Howard offering mesmeric vocal talent which never tries to dominate the soundscape, there’s plenty of distinction in Sebastian van Lieven’s sound. The authenticity is perceptible through the clear control of the melodies and the sense of electric vibrancy which is retained throughout the mix.
