Premiere: Soulnaturals ft. Jo Kelsey – I Got Sunshine (Enough For The World) (Chicky Boom Remix)

Soulnaturals-Ft.-Jo-Kelsey-I-Got-Sunshine

London soul/R&B act Soulnaturals led by songwriter-producer Tony Cannam connect with Auckland, New Zealand bred singer-songwriter Jo Kelsey for “I Got Sunshine (Enough For The World)” off their new album Love Says Yes! titled and have said track remixed for the dance floor by French DJ/producer Chicky Boom. Talk about an international effort, right?

We’re extremely pleased to world premiere the funky Frenchman’s house-tastic monster of a remix. Laden with deep keyboard work, crisp beats, bumpin’ bass, and expertly parsed samples of Kelsey’s powerful voice, the Toulouse maestro’s interpretation is old-school ’90s deepness meets contemporary vibes on a darkened dance floor.

Check the remix below, and the full release sporting re-rubs by Opolopo and Valique, when it’s released on May 12 via British Soul Standard.

Premiere: Click Box – I Saw It

São Paulo minimal techno master Pedro Turra has been bringing the heat as Click Box for well over a decade, releasing music on lauded imprints including Richie Hawtin’s M_nus and Magda, Marc Houle and Troy Pierce’s Items & Things.

Originally a collaborative project, Turra, who runs Timbral Records, continues to blaze new sonic trails as a solo artist, embedding fresh ideas into each new release.

This month Turra brings his evolving style to Silencio Music by way of Click Box’s Slow Dancer EP. The four-track effort ably displays his seemingly limitless musical chops. A producer who is clearly not interested in repeating himself, all four cuts are soaked in spellbinding synths, funky basslines and trippy grooves.

We’re pleased to world premiere “I Saw It,” a hypnotic groover from the EP. Get a first listen below and check out the full release on May 17.

Currently living and crafting music in Berlin, Canadian DJ/producer Sidney Sheldon Thompson has built his rep recording under various monikers such as Pan/Tone and Gringo Grinder. With a discography brandishing remixing tracks for Depeche Mode, Placebo, and Gui Boratto, he also keeps busy running Beachcoma Recordings along with musical cohorts Metope and Fairmont.

These days Sidney is focusing on his most recent alias Sid Le Rock, a nom de plomb that finds him cultivating lush electronic tracks for the dance floor.

Now aligned with Hamburg-based Hafendisko he’s about to unveil his High & Low EP, featuring ’80s style electro jams and a plethora of synth-driven shenanigans. We’re pleased to world premiere the title cut from his upcoming EP, a sinewy mid-tempo cut that slinks along a twisted path of off-kilter digi-funk.

Have a listen below and pick up the full release on May 8.

Premiere: Anders Ponsaing – Black Soda

anders_ponsaing

When opportunity knocks, you’ve got to be ready to answer the door. Just ask Danish DJ/producer Anders Ponsaing.

After spending much of his childhood ensconced in music, Ponsaing, who graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Sound Techniques from the Alternative Rhythmic Music Conservatory in Copenhagen, cut his musical teeth spinning in Copenhagen. Years of gigs allowed him to formulate his deep, techy signature.

When he got the call to remix Eva Scolaro & Steen T’s “Don’t Tell Me No,” he was all over it and rose to the occasion. Ponsaing’s remix eventually went viral, racking up over 17 million views on YouTube and finding its way into sets by a coterie of world-famous jocks. Unwilling to rest on his laurels, he parlayed the remix’s success into a residency at Avenue and gigs all over Ibiza last year.

Ahead of another year on the White Isle where he now lives, Ponsaing’s Deep Gravity EP is about to drop on Favouritizm. Ahead of the release we’re extremely pleased to world premiere “Black Soda,” a track oozing with ominous synth lines, pointed melodies and pristine percussion. Go listen below and pick up the full release on Traxsource on May 8 (everywhere else on May 22).

Premiere: Tripswitch – Sinking

In-At-The-Deep-End-Tripswitch-onedotsixtwo

Back in November we proclaimed our fondness for veteran chillout artist Nick Brennan (a.k.a. Tripswitch) and his blissful sound that encompasses deep, dark and beautiful house. A year after he released his divine third album, Vagabond, on Denmark’s Iboga Records, Brennan has launched his own imprint, onedotsixtwo, a sub-label of his eclectic electronica label Section Records.

Brennan wastes no time in getting thelabel off to a running start by mixing In At The Deep End, a 23-track two-disc compendium featuring a wealth of like-minded musical spirits traveling on the same psychic plane.

He says, “As it turns out, In At The Deep End has become the perfect vessel to introduce the world to onedotsixtwo. The album forms a bridge between my long-established Section Records label, and what listeners can expect to hear in the coming months and years on this new imprint.”

Ahead of the Beatport release on May 19 (June 2 sees the compilation’s general release) we’re extremely pleased to world premiere the compilation’s closing “Sinking” produced by Brennan, oozing with his rapturous grooves and glistening melodies.

Premiere: Ossie – Milk

Ossie

East London-based deep house DJ/producer Ossie is the latest entry to Exploited Records’ roster of talent.

(He also runs his own label, Super Cali.) Factor in DJ sets at Lovebox, XOYO, Sonar and Boiler Room and you’ll see why his star has been on the rise for some time now.
