Coloursound – Fly With Me (Original Mix) [DISCO FUNK]
Picked up the vinyl for this little gem yesterday at Sister Ray‘s. Its since been on the loop all this morning. Suave dance-floor filler that carries the spirit of the infectious 1990s French house production. With inviting lyrics such as ‘Fly with me, to the sun, good vibrations everyone’ the track echoes the positive vocal vibes of the 90’s decade musical output. Its romping nature meant it received enormous play-time in Ibiza, Miami and New Zealand just to name a few. Central to the track is its lush guitar loop, that powers throughout the song. There’s been clear influence from this track on Purple Disco Machine‘s current releases. This is one of those kooky tracks that show its best manifestation when play under the sun. So if you’re looking to pick up the tempo on one of the upcoming BBQs, then this banger might be the one to do it.
Dominik Eulberg – Taubenblut
As the hottest day of the year is here, there is only one DJ that was going to rule the airwaves today. Born and raised on the mountainous terrains of Germany’s Westerwald, Dominik Eulberg came to appreciate the aesthetics of nature from an early age. With such an upbringing, it is unsurprising that Eulberg could produce a track that is so reflective of the natural environment. ‘Taubenblut’ is his ultimate masterpiece.
Radiant, textured sounds filled with an aura that is reaching the upper levels of the celestial. Yet ‘Taubenblut’ still somehow manages to sound of the natural realms due to its use of wild soundscapes. A pulsating bassline sauntering through the constant minimal kick, represents the vigorous process of creation. The soundscapes created resonate closer to walking through a swarming wild forest more so than an abandoned factory. Just an example of how polar opposite the concept of a standard “techno track” can truly be. Continue reading
Sedvs / Peel – Still On (Original Mix)
Trance is definitely back in the scene. Over the past few years, it has been creeping its way more and more into the sets of prominent techno DJs, who’ve previously played it with abandon prior to the minimal explosion of the mid-naughties. Like this track, more and more techno tracks are incorporating trance-like, euphoric elements, (Stephan Bodzin’s remix of The Beginning is a great example) helping bring more panned soundscapes to the minds of club goers. And its certainly clear as to why.
DVS1 – Evolve [Hush 01]
As one YouTube comment put it DSV1 – Evolve carries a “bassline like liquid gold“.
With this first release on his label Hush, DSV1 brings a techno track that rattles the core of your brain, taking you on a trip that does not require hallucinogenics to take you higher. One wonders how many warehouse parties played this banger back in the summer of 2011. Throwback Thursday tracks are on the menu. #tbt

Luca Gaeta – Line (Original Mix)
Prolific Italian producer Luca Gaeta boasts an incredible number of releases over the last 3 years. The output totals almost a hundred tracks that he’s worked on. Some of the techno bangers have been played by globetrotters such as Adam Bayer, Jay Lumen & Mark Reeve.
‘Line‘ starts off like a standard Drumcode release, the kick thumping through a misty atmosphere of reverb. However, as the melody takes centre stage, a euphoric feeling brews, pulsating towards the end of the track.
Think back to the first time you found yourself in a club hearing unfamiliar music that felt part of its natural setting. That’s the feeling I get with ‘Line’.
V – Mon Vieil Amour
According to Soundcloud, nobody truly knows V, the face behind this killer, melodic track. Some claim V to be a Belgian with an EBM heritage, others, a nomad from outer Prussia.
If you let music do the talking, then V – Mon Vieil Amour is a 80s influenced nu-disco floor-filler. It definitely pumps the melody into your heartbeat. Reverb-heavy claps follow a pulsating kick, while V plays around with a range of tasty layers of synths and arps.
A track that can equally be used to increase the BPM during the warm up, as it can to maintain the vibes mid-set. It can be best understood as a track that you’ll replay in the morning after a great night out to put a nostalgic smile on your face.
