This month Swedish indie-pop twosome Tundran dropped their seven-track Morning Moon EP on PRMD Music to a bit of fanfare on the interweb. The duo — Jakob and Felix — draw influenc from disco to’80s electro-pop.
The pair put “All The Love” in the hands of Stockholm-based electro-house producer Jacob Tillberg, which we’re pleased to world premiere. On his blindly good remix, Tillberg embellishes the cut with sleek sounds while maintaining the original’s vibe.
Says Tillberg of his re-rub: “I wanted to make something different and beautiful but still something that works on the dance floor. I think the remix speaks to a broad audience with a mix between future house and some jungle sounding elements. You can both chill out to it and party to it.”

Earlier this year Martin Gretschmann (a.k.a. Acid Pauli) presented his transformative sophomore album, BLD. It was released on Ouïe, the label he co-runs with Nico Stojan. The eight-track collection is a smorgasbord of eclectic dance floor styles woven together with quixotic grooves and sinewy rhythms, blurring musical styles and freely drawing outside the lines.
On November 17 Ouïe will present the BLD Remixes A, a four-track set of remixes from Gretschmann’s masterful full-length. We’re pleased to world premiere Nico Stojan’s blissful remix of “Majid.”
Over the trajectory of seven amazing spaced-out minutes, Stojan patiently crafts a moody, minimal interpretation that’s truly something to behold.

In July we premiered DJ Emerson’s apocalyptic remix of John Haden‘s “Different World.” Not only was the release brilliant but it also served as Cyborgs In Love’s debut release. Run by label head YENI, CIL’s mission is to serve as a platform for both her solo experimental techno productions and new talent.
After a few more releases and a successful showcase at ADE, YENI is closing out 2017 with a bang by releasing her Hang On EP.
We’re extremely pleased to world premiere Andres Campo’s blindingly good remix of “Axon.” The Florida 135 club resident delivers a sharp, groovy re-rub that effortlessly builds into a rousing crescendo.

Graham “Dids” Dowdall has enjoyed a storied career to date. In the ’80s he played with Nico — yes, that Nico — and he’s collaborated with the likes of John Cale, Ludus, Eric Random, Suns of Arqa, Band of Holy Jo and Low Bias. What stories this man might have. These days he crafts gorgeous ambient music under his Gargarin alias, producing music that’s pensive and purposeful. He’s also a member of avant rock legends Pere Ubu and duo Roshi featuring Pars Radio.
In advance of the release of Gargarin’s upcomoming album, Corvid (Geo), we’re thrilled to world premiere “Winterfold,” a lush, airy soundscape.
“‘Winterfold’ is a rework of a track originally commissioned as part of a sound project based on 5 hills in Surrey,” explains Goldsmith, who is practitioner and expert in music and disabilities as well as a lecturer at Goldsmiths.
“This hill is called Winterfold and the track features recordings of sounds from the top this wooded hill which I visited one evening in June. Whilst there a thunderstorm arrived though no rain fell as I walked. In this rework I’ve tried to capture the atmosphere of being high above the flat plain of southern Surrey and Sussex. All percussive sounds were generated by hitting twigs, branches and trees.”

Neapolitan producer Nicola Altieri crafts deep, warm and wonderfully soulful tracks under his The Mechanical Man moniker. Influenced by the sounds of Detroit, Chicago, and Philadelphia, his soothing signature bridges the gap between house and broken beat.
Altieri recently joined forces with the Bosconi family, contributing “Ricominciare” to The Sweetest Vol.1 compilation on Bosconi Extra Virgin.
This month our man seals the deal in a big way with Mechanical Soul, a terrific mini album well worth your attention.
We’re extremely pleased to world premiere “Gess” featuring pisan Bob Vito. Hit the play button below and soak in this cosmic space jam overflowing with a groovy bassline and dubby vibes.
Veteran Italian house maestro Leonardo Gonnelli has released quality tracks on fine imprints like Seth Troxler’s Play It Say It imprint, Steve Lawler’s ViVA Music, and Hot Since 82’s Knee Deep In Sound. Given the esteemed company he’s been keeping it makes perfect sense for him to debut on Yusef’s Circus Recordings, a label who’ve been churning out proper dance floor classics for the better part of 15 years.
Leonardo’s “Moan” — out November 3 on Circus — is a deliriously good peak-time offering. We’re extremely pleased to world premiere a stellar remix crafted by his Parisian pisan The Mekanism (a.k.a. Damien Roussel). Like Leonardo, he’s released on Play It Say and is known for bathing his tracks with elements of disco and acid.
