Preview: Hardwell & Funkerman – Where Is Here Now (Franky Rizardo Remix)

franky-rizardoIt’s been a hot second since we’ve seen Franky Rizardo link up with Hardwell. They couldn’t have chosen a better record for Franky to remix. Debuted in his radio show, Franky’s “Where Is Here Now” remix is considerably more house than the already housey Funkerman and Hardwell original. It comes in the shadows of hugely popular “Baby Slow Down” with Ferreck.

Release Date: December 4th

Release: King Arthur vs Topher Jones – Before I Was King


How does one introduce a new production alias when you’re already an established artist in your own right? Release music under both names on one release, of course. Having taken the world by storm as Topher Jones, he unveils new moniker, King Arthur, in a ‘collaborative’ remix EP for Ultra Music.

Picking three old favourites for “Before I Was King”, Jones reworks himself under his new King Arthur project with some epic house flavours. Crowd pleaser “Brohammer”, previously released on Skrillex’s OWSLA label, gets a thumping revamp with distorted, driving bass lines and piano chords. “Talk About It” gets the 90’s house revival treatment while “Lost It All” smooths off the edges.

The fantastic “Before I Was King” is out now and you can get it from here.

Release: Tez Cadey – Walls EP

Tez-Cadey-Walls-500x500Clocking in at seven tracks deep, Tez Cadey drops his brand new EP (although it almost feels like a mini album) via release on Ultra Music. “Walls” is a brooding collection that traverses the sounds and styles of house music, laced with soul yet showing technical adeptness within the production.

With popular previous single “Seve” featured on here, you also get the 80’s retro electronica of “Little Fish”, the guitar driven title cut “Walls”, featuring the vocals of Julia Church, and the synth driven “Palm” – a funky uptempo offering which offers a nice contrast with its disco funk stylings.

For this release, Cadey shows many influences on his musical sleeve and “Walls” is the perfect introduction to a future star. You can stream it here.

Release: Kideko – The Jam (DubRocca Remix)

Kideko - The Jam (DubRocca Remix)

If you caught the release of “The Jam” by Kideko, which landed back in June, you would have witnessed how much of a catchy anthem it was. Flying high in the charts since its release and gaining plenty of commercial radio support, the tune that takes vocals from Technotronic’s famous “Pump Up The Jam” has now been remixed.

Taking on what could have been a daunting task is DubRocca, a London based house producer and DJ who recently took on Skrillex and Diplo’s “Where Are You Now” ft. Justin Bieber. Just released through Ultra Music, this classy rework hits all the right spots. With a rhythmically assured take on the tune, DubRocca adds even more groove into the bass line and allows the vocal melodies to retain their energy.

Must Listen: Lido records “thoughts from a tour bus” over “Here” by Alessia Cara

A night we waited six months for and it did not dissappoint. From Santell coming out and performing “Pillows” and “Ashley” off their The Passion Project EP to Lido going in about how his Soundcloud account being harassed in a small rant. And, while he had an amazing show and said amazing things about the audience and venue post-performance, you could tell their was something up when he was so locked in on getting back to the bus to record a vocal.

Anyhoo, three days ago he uploaded his own take on Vincent’s remix of “Here” by Alessia Cara. Ironically, Vincent’s remix has been taken down from Soundcloud and Lido had to make a new account because his was frozen. Listen to him go in about tour life, groupies, Soundcloud, record label execs and being left alone.
