Today we begin with a track Nic Fanciulli recently shared that his pal Guti composed to help Nic’s young son fall asleep. For those late nights, early mornings, or cat/disco naps, we’ve passed it along to you.
Second is a track called “How I Feel” by Lane 8 that he uploaded to his Soundcloud just a month ago. I’m already a big fan of Lane 8 from his “The One” release and am excited for Klangkarussell’s forthcoming remix as well, so with its classic vocal sample and sturdy beat, ‘How I Feel’ is a track that you’ll surely be grooving to in no time.
Third out of the bag today is a chill, soulful number by KRONO & Cimo Fränkel called ‘Sweet Goodbye.’ With its impressive vocals and impenetrable drums, don’t be surprised if this R&B infused track makes you try that silly Bruno Mars impression (again).
The fourth track we share with you today is by Pittsburg duo Le Moti titled “Can’t Live.” It’s got a slower vibe and an airy feel until it breaks open about three minutes in. Great use of samples and effects on this one.
Today’s mambo number five is by Detroit Swindle called “The Wrap Around.” Its assertive bass line and jazzy vocal sample are sure signs that you’ll hear this one on the dancefloor in the coming weeks.
Seventh in Oxtavius Magical Goodybag 003 is by Birmingham’s Low Steppa called “Open Up.” Also featuring a female vocal, this track displays Low Steppa’s great knack for the atonal, guttural, garage-infused house and bass music that continues to dominate clubs and parties international.
Numero ocho is a trippy house track by Edinburgh’s Hostage called “Tufty.” I’m really not sure how else to describe it other than the fact that I am currently standing up dancing trying to type at the same time. Just download it and play it for your friends and thank me later.
The last track we have today is by Albanian Producer/DJ Sabb. I first discovered this guy a year or two ago through Roger Sanchez‘s Release Yourself Podcast and have been playing his tracks a lot in recent months, so I thought this uplifting tribal tech house track would be a nice way to close out our session.
