I originally wanted to do a blog reviewing new music each month, but have decided I’m also going to do a mix of my favourites of the month (in release date order).

Here’s the tracklist for the mix.

Artist – Title [Release (yy-mm-dd) Label]

  1. Comoc – Ugly Mirrors [Bangaloops (17-01-04) Comoc]
  2. Comoc – Bangaloop Dunk [Bangaloops 2 (17-01-17) Comoc]
  3. Comoc – Time For You [Bangaloops 2 (17-01-17) Comoc]
  4. PZG & Dubsknit – My Love [We Rob Rave 2 (17-01-25) Cock Rock Disco]
  5. PZG & Dubsknit – Be Wiv You [We Rob Rave 2 (17-01-25) Cock Rock Disco]
  6. PZG & Dubsknit – Allright [We Rob Rave 2 (17-01-25) Cock Rock Disco]
  7. PZG & Dubsknit – Down All Night [We Rob Rave 2 (17-01-25) Cock Rock Disco]
  8. Breaka – Pull & Release [Express Your Groove (17-01-27) Modern Ruin]
  9. Breaka – The Mistake [Express Your Groove (17-01-27) Modern Ruin]
  10. Breaka – Express Your Groove [Express Your Groove (17-01-27) Modern Ruin]
  11. BCOTB – Little Thoughts [Traxmex Vol. 1 (17-01-27) JukeMX]
  12. Itoa – Strange Attractor [Strange Attractor (17-01-30) Beat Machine]
  13. Kiruma – How Did We Get Here (A. Fruit remix) [How Did We Get Here (10-01-31) Black Marble Collective]
  14. Lux Familiar – More Flava [The Right Way (17-01-31) Polish Juke]
  15. Lux Familiar – The Right Way feat. Rhythm Baboon [The Right Way (17-01-31) Polish Juke]

 

Comoc released two Bangaloop EPs this month, pretty classic footwork/juke styles in these two releases, my favourite from vol1 being Ugly Mirrors, a blippy tune with enough variation and some great screaming. From vol2, Time For You is the standout, the bass getting a fair bit of a workout in this one compared to some of his other tunes.

PZG & Dubsknit’s aptly named We Rob Rave 2 heavily samples rave tracks of the 90s, and they’re mostly hits if you ask me. They range from jungle heavy to more traditional footwork.

Breaka’s Express Your Groove is also more on the jungle side of things, Pull & Release is a throwback to 95 jungle, while The Mistake has a bassline that could’ve been written by Om Unit, its half-step structure is backed up with jungle drums. Express Your Groove is more of the same only a more seemingly scattered drum kit. Itoa’s remix of The Mistake goes in a different direction completely, it has a percussive and tribal feel to it.

Mexico based JukeMX put out the first volume of Traxmex. This release sees some great tunes, including a footwork remix of Rihanna’s Umbrella, but the standout tune for me is BCOTB’s Little Thoughts, a chilled gem with heavy use of piano and subtle vocal sampling.

Itoa always brings something brilliant with each release, Strange Attractor is no different, with his signature footwork-jungle executed perfectly. Sully takes it further down the jungle end of the spectrum with chopped up breaks.

Kiruma’s How Did We Get Here gets the remix treatment by three excellent artists, A. Fruit’s being the standout. Lush synth work swooping all over on top of a pretty standard A. Fruit affair. The BSN Posse remix is also noteworthy, stripping things back a bit.

The Right Way EP by Lux Familiar is a perfect example of how is done. More Flava is just plain bumbaclaat good, while The Right Way utilises some pretty epic double bass samples to great effect.

 

Cheers for checking out my blog. Hopefully I’ll be back next month with some more J

      We see him more and more often appear in the harder styles and it wouldn’t be his last one for sure. Hardwell, the former number one DJ of the world, makes an appearance again in hardstyle music and this time he does it with no one less than Wildstylez for a collaboration.
      After they shared the stage during Amsterdam Dance Event together and worked in the studio with each other in that same month, the collab between the two of them was only a matter of time. And now it’s here: last weekend Hardwell played at The World’s Biggest Guestlist Festival in India, which he organized himself for his United We Are Foundation.
      After Hardwell took the chance to mention his friend over the microphone (“Shout out to my buddy Wildstylez!”) during his set, he dropped his new collab with the hardstyle DJ. And so their track got premiered for the visitors and viewers and home via the livestream. Check out the video down below.
      This is the new Hardwell & Wildstylez collab
      As the new collab by Hardwell & Wildstylez is still it’s early stages, it’s not know yet what the title of the track is going to be. When and where the track is going to be released is going to be revealed later on. In a earlier interview we did with Hardwell, he mentioned that there’s a tiny chance that he will play a hardstyle set in the future: “There are no plans at the moment, but never say never.”

      New Parisian imprint Lost On You is the first electronic record label and benefit program to donate all money raised from album sales.
      The label is a platform for talent, where talent becomes a way to help alleviate some of the toughest problems faced around the world, in this case, the fight against malnutrition, hunger and sanitary problems in the poorest parts of Africa.
      For it’s debut release, Several Definitions, steps in with a pearl of evocative on an expertly produced EP, “Sierra,” only fitting that such a refreshingly progressive label.
      “Sierra” is available 15 January on Lost on You
