Trentemøller
Deceive
In My Room

imr17Lifted from the current album ‘Lost’ Trentemøller’s latest standout single fuses a fuzzy sense of gothic with Sune Rose Wagner’s deliciously tempting vocals sounding like starlight has just struck the horizon. Heady guitar’s, piercing violins stabs and brooding synths cover this with a dark sheen which is all too irresistible. Appearing alongside the album mix are two new takes including Trentemøller‘s own Club version which injects some extra percussion into the groove giving it a somewhat sassier rhythm. Unkwon then treat you with another imagining amid a sequence of pulsating electronics and vocal effects paying compliment to the outstanding original.

Craig Smith
Only When It Is Darkest EP
Teng

Simmering with the same energetic essence that MAW used to lend their drums this great production from Craig Smith has pounding beats demand your attention as an infusion of jazzy synth stabs hypnotize you. The Phlash Remix adds punchier drums and a treated voiceover to additional piano chords and tech bass resulting in a typically notable remix. The equally tasty Fabio Della Torre version then takes it deeper giving it an almost ambient underscore, with second track Matter Dont Matter ending the EP on a more downtempo note complete with a Balearic twist.

Lerio Corrado
Mystical Heaven EP
Bauns Music

Italian imprint Bauns Music has fittingly releases this great production by Naples DJ Lerio Corrado. And the exiting quality of the title track, Mystical Heaven is that while the beats feel purely Techno the undulating funkiness of the rhythms and (in places) Jazzy synth lines give this a distinct edge that practically breaks free from categorization. Next, So What adds sparky attitude to more expansive bass and whirling electronics, with final track to complete this striking release, Behind The Groove simply getting weirder – that’s a compliment BTW.

Skalpel
Simple EP
Plug Audio

artworks-000077546671-gbklpy-t500x500Providing a taste of what lays in store from their forthcoming album the Polish production duo lay down some very gorgeous Jazzy flavours in anticipation with this EP. Packed full of moods, bass, and horns accompanied by some very snazzy drumming this plays like the soundtrack to one of those perfect summer evenings just around the corner. Standouts include the carnival of sounds that is On The Road and the melancholy strains of the aptly titled Soundtrack – the outstanding video is below.
