#2147 – DIGITAL LOVE
Our latest compilation features our favourite new House & Tech House jams for the summer including:
Alex Ranerro “Move Me” – Alex first appeared on the label collaborating with Mike Vale on our Ibiza album last year. Here he delivers a simple-but-effective raw tech jam. If you like your tech with a bit of NYC flavour, this is for you.
Space Jump Salute “Insert Sample” – SJS’s Marcus Sadler has been impressing the likes of Mark Knight, David Squiallace, Dosem & Joseph Capriati with his releases on Toolroom & Cr2. Here he delivers a super catchy sample wrapped up in a monster tech beat.
Vlad Asanin “Rocketman” – He might not be that well known in the UK but to fellow GU artists Matt Sassari, Mario Ochoa and his 40K plus Facebook fans, the Serbian producer is a bit of a legend. Here he delivers a typically floor -filling having-it biggie complete with hip-hop samples and rave stabs.
AleVtina, Rich Hila “Up Up” – The Ukranian duo follow up their techno single with two heads down groovers. This is the more peak-time of the two with its call-to-arms vocal and bouncing, rubbery bass.
Gabriel Moraes “Green Shelter” – Sao Paolo’s Gabriel debuts on the label with this heavy-weight jam that’s maybe closer to techno than tech house, the kind of thing you might hear Alan Fitzpatrick ripping up the Sankey’s dance-floor with at 3am.
Kinnerman “Once Again” – We first heard Kinnerman collaborating with Stefano Esposito on Josh Butler’s Origins Rcrds. Here he brings a classic big-time hip-hop sample and rolling groove to the party. With a release coming on Kaluki too, he’s definitely one to watch.
Stefano Esposito “Say What” – If you prefer your tech tough and raw like sound of Roush or WoW, this jacking jam is for you. Rough beats and a cool, trippy vocal sample underpinned by a solid looping bass.
Ario “Gangsta Grip” – Ario’s super-classy hip-house first appeared on our Miami compilation this year. Here he’s back with more of the same.
AleVtina, Rich Hila “Beat Rock” – The 2nd track from Alina & Rich is a darker noisier affair with driving synths, rolling percussion and wonky hardcore fx.
Sllash & Doppe “Matador” – Romania’s Sllash & Doppe have a wicked EP due out soon on Vangelis Kostoxenakis’ Talk of The Town label. For this VA they have given us a warm, Moog’d out groove perfect for getting crowds warmed up on the way to the bangers.
