Oliver Heldens Gregor Salto

We’ve been waiting a long time for this track and it’s come at the perfect time. Oliver Heldens will be in Toronto as a part of The Guvernment’s final Labour of Love at their current location and we’re beyond stoked to see Heldens again. This house revamp of the original is so damn addictive we literally can’t stop playing it… We’re also really sorry for that lame pun.

10352199_340161909442094_2122941289812661285_nVanRip is a name you’re going to start hearing a lot more in the next few months. The duo out of Toronto recently caused a stir on their collab with Shaun Frank titled “Vegabond”. Dim Mak picked up on the record for it’s release and it’s seen massive playtime from Aoki, Autoerotique and in Tomorrowland’s Minimix.

“5 years ago, I was introduced to ‘Warp 1.9′ by my college buddy Ripul. It absolutely blew my mind, and introduced me to a whole new world of dance music. Last year, Rip and I decided to start this group as a way to mess around with music production and jam. We started getting better and decided to take it a bit more seriously.”

This Saturday (Aug. 30th) the duo are headlining Smog City’s Home Grown series at Virgin Mobile Club alongside Skugog, Ricardo Rise, Anonymous Electronica and Booch & Sydo.

Preview: Golden Features – Tell Me ft. Nicole Millar (Bixel Boys Remix)

Bixel Boys @ IlesoniqBixel Boys are a duo out of LA that we’ve been digging for a long time. We had the chance to finally check em’ out a few weekends ago at Ilesoniq in Montreal. After their set we caught up for a quick chat that turned into an hour long conversation. They’re back with another production that takes their sound in another direction. “Tell Me” by Golden Features with Nicole Millar has been turned into a house bomb; rife with huge piano chords, smashing high-hats and a rave inspired drop that’s been slowly making it’s way to the forefront of dance music. Oh yeah, they’re back in Toronto with Sleepy Tom and Trippy Turtle real soon ;)
