Release: Charlie Darker – HMF (Original Mix)

charlie-darker1Leave it to Charlie Darker to always come correct with an original piece of electronic nastiness.

“Loaded with a unique new sound and a fresh take on dance music. Combining elements of techno, electro, trap, and more with cutting edge sound design, the young Canadian producer has turned out a two-track EP that expertly manages to push the boundaries of electro house.” – Kannibalien Record

We’re reaching a time where the popular big-room sounds are waning and people are looking for something a little more. A little more challenging, a little more complex, a little more forward thinking. The big festival sized stages aren’t going anywhere anytime soon and we’re going to need awesome music to fill them. Charlie may be supplying a heavy dose of that.

Release: Roul and Doors – Down To This (Original Mix)

10432790Quite possibly one of the dirtiest tracks we’ve heard in the last few months. We’ve been huge fans of Roul and Doors for awhile and still haven’t seen them live. They bring a new level of energy to the table with their unique take on club heavy big-room. Like a lot of our favourite producer these guys may not produce the most technical tracks, but have found a sound that really resonates to the dance floor. Like they say, less is more. “Down to This” has been tearing their sets apart for a long time and utilizes their signature grinding sounds to add anew level of energy that isn’t kick-drum driven. Top notch track, so be sure to grab it on Flamingo.

Release: Will Sparks – Bourne (Original Mix)

will-sparksFor those of you who crave the off-beat, Aussie sensation Will Sparks has returned with a brand new release, titled “Bourne”. Released on Ultra Records, the track screams of Will’s love for anthemic Melbourne beasts and contains his unique claps. Our favorite part is definitely the drop, as he avoids typical builds and hits us straight with a bassline out of nowhere. A huge track to tides us over until “Another Land” which features his own vocals hits the shelves.

Free Download: Matt Zanardo – BOMBSHELL (Original Mix)

matt-zanardoToronto producer Matt Zanardo has been rewarding his fans over the last couple weeks with a shit ton of free downloads. “Bombshell” has been up on Soundcloud for the better part of a year and several big name DJs have been destroying sets with it. Most notable, Henry Fong has been pulling it out as a secret weapon. Zanardo does an amazing job at trickling that fine line between merging peak time sounds with his unique sound. “BOMBSHELL” comes off as a massive big-room track and feeds off his love for bounce, but what we really love about the track is the little details and sound snippets that really add another dimension. Grab the track for free an don’t sleep on Matt.

Release: Joe Garston – Prelude in JG

joe-garstonBritish producer Joe Garston continues to wow with every release. His most recent track “Prelude in JG” again confirms why he was one of our favourite artists. Whispering vocal chops, catchy guitar chords and some wonderfully bouncy electro stylings complete the track.

Thanks to an iTunes blunder, Knife Party’s “Abandon Ship” album is out 3 weeks early

Knife Party

We’re got to hand it to iTunes, they singlehandedly moved up Knife Party’s album release date by 3 whole weeks. Was it a mistake? Was it planned to grab some hype right off the bat due to a “leak”? We’ll probably never know for sure, but what we can tell you is that the album is in fact out and it’s pretty good. They take a couple shots at the music scene as it stands like with “EDM Trend Machine”.

Head over to iTunes here to pickup the full album.

Release: Flatdisk – Own Freedom

10276074The first thing that came to my mind when I heard “Own Freedom” by Flatdisk was how Joe Garston sounding it was. Like Garston’s sound, “Own Freedome” delivers the feels alongside a pulsating electro sound. The Italian duo are relatively new, but have seen releases on Cr2, Revealed and Protocol and now joining Big Beat for this uplifting beast.
