Review: Blues vocals and electronic beats have a long history, from 'Alabama Blues' and Moby's 'Play' album to the likes of Jon Hopkins and John Grant. Sydney's Colour Castle draw on that noble tradition here, drafting in vocalist Truiett for a cut that, its original form, sounds like it's aimed at daytime radio play. If that's a bit too polite for you, though, then the Club Mix dirties things up considerably via the addition of snare rolls and a huge warping bassline, while additional Extended and Club Mix Extended passes do pretty much what they say on the tin.
Review: It's about that time again: bring on the summer season on The White Isle for 2019 where top British label Cr2 is guaranteed to bring the vibe on this year's Ibiza Opening Party various artists compilation. Featuring a whopping 28 tracks, the highlights are not limited to: the legendary Carl Cox on "I Want You" getting on a tough bounce courtesy of Josh Butler's remix, the unstoppable Camelphat doing their 2017 Re-Fix of DJ Wady & Patrick M's "Hulk", though to functional and peak time tackle like Green Velvet & Junior Sanchez' "Heavy Mental" (Mihalis Safras remix), DJ Jeroenski's "Back Once Again" (Max Chapman remix) and timeless feel good classics revisited on The Face Vs Mark Brown's "Needin' U" (Dimitri From Paris remix) and Adesse Versions cover of New Order's "Blue Monday" (extended mix).
Review: You can always count on veteran DJ Mark Brown to bring the goods courtesy of his Cr2 Live & Direct Radio Show every month, where he presents the latest and very best in global tech house. The track list compiled from his recent August 2019 podcast is featured here in its entirety and if you're a DJ - there's all you need right here! Highlights not limited to: the return of Steve Angello with the ever reliable Eric Prydz on new hit "Woz Not Woz" (Club mix), the electrifying vocal house bomb by Colour Castle "Night Road" (feat Damon Trueitt - Martin Badder remix - extended), through to Material boss Mihalis Safras remixing legends Green Velvet & Junior Sanchez's new thriller "Heavy Mental" and then into tough rolling action for the main room with the ever reliable Leeds producer Jey Kurmis going deep down and dirty on "Jas".
