Dauwd - Heat Division
Some killer 4/4 beats from UK producer Dauwd. I came across this track as per Bonobo's suggestion and was quickly hypnotized. Not much more description is needed, check this one out.
Today marks the split of Canadian group Azari & III. Their self-titled debut album will always hold a special place in my heart (and in my record collection!) I really wish that I got to see them live when they were touring. I’m sad to see them end their project and split ways, but so stoked for all the good music they put out in their years. This is the first mix that I ever listened to by them that hooked me right from the first track, “Changes” by Sixth Borough Project. I’ll miss you Dinamo Azari & Alixander III, thank you for the great music throughout the years, and hope to see you guys collaborating or producing in new guises soon! Sorry I couldn’t put a streaming link through Tumblr, this is a “private sound” of Fact Mag that I can only link to (trust me this one is worth your time!)
Sunday Girl - Where Is My Mind (Florian Paetzold Remix) [free download in 320!]
This is an emotive and blissful remix of a cover of The Pixies’ signature track, ”Where Is My Mind.” British pop singer Sunday Girl provides a mellow rendition of the original on the piano, and then Florian Paetzold gives the cover much more depth by layering a simple deep house beat with chillingly beautiful vocals. When I heard first heard this one on the Dennis Besta - Wechselbad Der Gefühle Teil 2 podcast (mellow, highly recommended), I had to stop what I was doing and do some trackspotting until I found this gem. This remix definitely does the original justice, hope you enjoy it as much as I do!
Jesse Rose - Time Is But A Moment
Time is just time. ”Time Is But A Moment” reminds me a lot of Kerri Chandler's “Oblivion” (Give it a listen), albeit a bit less dark but with equally hypnotizing vocals. Jesse Rose delivers that feeling of being completely lost on the dancefloor with no concept of time when mesmerized by a beat. I can definitely attest that he has this effect on the dancefloor having seen him several times… Get lost in this jam.
Mount Kimbie - Made To Stray (DJ Koze Remix)
Lush and sonically complex, this one tickles my ears in all the right ways. Especially when DJ Koze brings the vocals back right around the [5:10] mark.
When a fire starts to burn, right? And it starts to spread.
She gonna bring that attitude home.
Green Velvet - Bigger Than Prince (Hot Since 82 Remix)
Walk around like you´re bigger than Prince. Deep.
Joy O - BRTHDTT (Big Room Tech House DJ Tool Tip)
Finally found the name of this song that had been eluding me for a minute. First heard it at one of the Dirtybird parties earlier this year at Mezzanine, and this song sounds damn good on a huge soundsystem, staying true to its name (Big Room Tech House). Joy O really kills it on this wobbly track.
The Weeknd - Wicked Games (Hannah Wants & Chris Lorenzo Remix) [[free download!]]
A bass heavy, deep and unique 126 bpm remix of The Weeknd's “Wicked Games”. The rolling bass in this track just keep coming and undoubtedly causes the floor to erupt. I absolutely love the back and forth pace of this track. Scope the free download that Birmingham’s Hannah Wants released today!
Check out an exclusive stream of Disclosure’s Settle which drops on June 3rd via The Guardian [via Soundcloud]. Enjoy some funky deep house/garage melodic electronic grooves.
Lee Burridge and Matthew Dekay - Wongel [via Zippyshare]
Bouncy tech house goodness with nice little variations and progressions over a ten-minute span. Lee Burridge and Matthew Dekay provide deliciously clean bass that is sure to keep a dancefloor popping. Props to my homie Greg “Chin” for this one.
Maya Jane Coles - Essential Mix (2013-05-04)
MAYA JANE COLES: Essential Mix Two Timer In Under Two Years
It is a great honor for a DJ to be invited to play a set for BBC’s world-renowned Essential Mix, and many great electronic music acts go through their entire careers without ever playing even a single one. Although some older and more experienced DJs have appeared on the program multiple times particularly in the late 90s/early 00s (read: Sasha appearing 28 times or Oakenfold appearing on 36 mixes), to take control of the Essential Mix decks on multiple occasions a DJ needs to be the crème de la crème, especiallyin this day and age of electronic music.
Maya Jane Coles has been producing music since 2008 and played her first Essential Mix at the age of 23 on July 9, 2011. After achieving critical acclaim with her infectious 2010 hit, "What They Say", she gained international attention and quickly flew to the top ranks of world-class electronic music producers.
She is a highly talented individual with a hyperfocus on the deep and tech house scene and her second Essential Mix less than two years after her debut is undeniable proof that she is here to stay. The mix kicks off on a slower note but by the hour mark you’ll probably be jumping out of your chair if you’re like me. After another full hour of refined deep and dark house tunes, by the end of the mix you’ll be praying for her to play on. More MJC here.

Fred Falke & The Knocks - Geronimo
You want to go to the sky with me? Geronimo!
Just listened to Frenchman Fred Falke’s Kitsune minimix via Soundcloud and it is definitely one of the best sun-kissed disco —> electro mix that I have heard in a while.
"Geronimo" is the final track on the 30 minute set and it is exactly what I’ve been missing in electro house… banging yet not over the top, blissful and melodic, pure feel good raging music. Check out the minimix and you’ll know what I’m talking about.
Afrojack - Polkadots (Oliver Twizt Remix)

Hannah Wants & Chris Lorenzo - Teardrop on the Fire [download]
Hailing from Birmingham, Hannah Wants is one of the multitude of rising electronic music talents from the UK today. I only discovered her music a few days ago, when listening to catz n dogz essential mix (which I highly recommend by the way…) and now I am stoked to have found her unique and irresistible beats. When I heard the “Teardrop on the Fire” vocal sample on the Essential Mix at around [50.05] followed up by some banging deep house with an even smoother passage into a slower, grooving rhythm, I had to pause and find the tracklist STAT and look into what artist made me get out of my chair and dance unrestrainedly with headphones on. Don’t forget to download the track for free in [320 kbps] above from the artist herself…More to come on Hannah Wants, keep an eye out for her!
