Lose Yourself

Underground Sounds
A pinch of nu-disco and a handful of bouncing bass. Recipe for success.
download: James Curd - Decadance (Richard Richard Remix)

download: Azari & III - Into The Night (Softwar Remix)

I'm not really sure how to explain this track, but I can say from first hand experience that it's a dancefloor monster. At the right hour of the AM this one does unmeasurable amounts of damage. You've been warned.
download: The Living Graham Bond - Group Logic

download: Ben Westbeech - Falling (Deetron Acid Dub)

Although it's maybe not quite up to the uber-deep Will Saul mix, this Beni remix of Foreign Language is still really spectacular. Acid-tinged bass and bouncing grooves for days.
download: Flight Facilities - Foreign Language feat. Jess (Beni Remix)

Thank you Art Department in Miami for bringing this glorious slice of dance magic back to my attention..
download: Cajmere & Russoul - Let's Dance (Original Mix)

Delirious, slurred-down tech house from the Martin Brothers and dirtybird recs.
download: The Martin Brothers - Steal Drums (Original Mix)

download: Toky - About You (Fur Coat Remix)

Pounding Electrodes
I've been waiting on this release for a while now.. Italian lunatics Blatta & Inesha absolutely crush it here, sounding a bit like Mumbai Science on an acid trip gone terribly wrong.. 'Anatomy' is just the right amount of demented - the type of song that seems entirely appropriate with your face melting off in the middle of 3,000 other people at a festival.
download: Blatta & Inesha - Anatomy (Original Mix) *192kbps

LA-by-New-York producer Clockwork really seems to be coming into his own lately after a 2011 that saw him gain a fair deal of recognition, mainly from his 'Levels' remix. This next track Nox, off of his 'Squad Up' EP on Dim Mak is by far his most impressive effort yet.
download: Clockwork - Nox (Original Mix)

Acid fused techno that sounds like it'd fit just as well into a Brodinski set as a Sven Vath one (in other words.. it's b o m b)
download: Mao - Harken (Acid Version)

Once again, an acid-inflected cut that seems like it has Brodinski written all over it. This song is pure madness, old school piano stabs and rave acid synth lines swirling all over the place. Could probably be a little bit longer than 4:45 though..
download: Housquare - Saphir (Original Mix)

Speaking of Brodinski....
download: Surkin ft. Ann Saunderson - Lose Yourself (Brodinski Remix)

It's not nearly as hard hitting as everything above, but this Alex Kenji remix effort is mega funky. And the tribal african-esque sample it's centered around is rather wonderful too.
download: Sander Van Doorn - Outro (Alex Kenji Remix)

Old School ravey vibes from from long time new york party champion Tommie Sunshine. The Dominating Force, Is Sound. Out now on Bart B More's Secure Recordings.
download: Tommie Sunshine - The Dominating Force Is Sound (Original Mix)

Simple, booty-shakin' dutch house like it's 2009. Kinda like Chuckie when he used to make good music.. Out now on Bingo Players' Hysteria Imprint.
download: Kenneth G - Bazinga (Original Mix)

In my mind, generally it's much more difficult for an electro track to be sexy in the same way that deeper or subtler house tracks can be. This next remix is the exception to that rule. Dirty, sexed-out electro from some of our favorite party-minded Canadians, Autoerotique. Filthy...
download: Tiesto ft. Kay - Work Hard, Play Hard (Autoerotique Remix)

You can always count on The Magician to bring good vibes with his tunes. This remix came out for free the other day and the only way I can think to describe it is like 80's dream pop with fun-in-the-sun overtones. Love it.
download: Scenic - Another Sky (The Magician Remix)

download: Softwar - This Time Around (Original Mix)

Stay Classy,
