Namito - Marathon (Petar Dundov Remix)

This is quite an exceptional piece of electronic music, very uplifting, but quite deep.  Melodic.  Almost trance-like.  Yes, trance is coming back.  Sorry underground but expect to hear more like this.  You might like it (again) one day.

Marco Carola - Question of Time

I am not a huge fan of Marco Carola, I don’t quite get him, but plenty of people do, he does have quite a significant following in the underground.  This however does appeal a lot, very stripped back and plinky-plonk minimal, but it feels nice.

DJ Sneak - Babylon Fallin'

DJ Sneak has been around for so long, I remember him from the 90’s house music I used to listen to, and finally his jacking house sound is big in the popular underground again.  This is typical jacking house of his and samples ‘Go’ by Moby.  Very nice, very enjoyable.

Jamie Jones & Art Department- Our Time In Liberty

You’ve probably heard many like this by now if you have been following my blog, but it is good.  Typical sounds of Jamie Jones fused with the typical sounds of Art Department, the whole slightly gothic and slowed down deep bass house sound, with repeated male vocals.

Hercules and Love Affair - My House

This is very quirky sounding, but replicating an 80’s house sound in a modern way, I like this a lot, I think it will be very popular, along the lines of popularity of Tensnake’s Coma Cat.  Very well worth a listen.

Melon - Money (Sascha Dive's 15 Minutes Melodrama Remix)

I do like a good 15 minute track, and this is a little gem, just gently floating in the wind kind of minimal, but with enough to be going on for it to be interesting and rather enchanting.

Seth Troxler - Love Bezerker (Ryan Crosson Remix)

I really like this dark techy twisted beat behind this, it has this kind of crunching house feeling.

DJ T. - Burning (Club Mix)

Yet another deep, dark tech-house track with a male vocal, but yet again, it hits the spot.  There is also an Art Department remix but I prefer this one.  I think.

WhoMadeWho - Every Minute Alone (Tale Of Us & Seth Troxler Dub Edit)

This is clearly going to be massive.  Creepy slow house with male vocal, deep bassline, and some guitar in it too, it will tick a lot of boxes for a lot of people.

Steve Bug - Jack is Back

Steve Bug got me into this whole minimal/underground thing very first, back in 2004 when I stumbled across him at Cocoon in Ibiza.  So I have a lot of respect for him, but his productions are more often misses than hits with me – some I love, but many bore me.  This thankfully is superb, taking the feel of 80’s house into the modern, dark, percussive house sound.

Gotan Project - Panamericana (Michel Cleis Remix)

This is quite a spooky percussive house track, it has a slight edge to it.

Giorgio Moroder – Chase

This is from 1979.  A whole 32 years old.  Giorgio Moroder was miles ahead of his time and a true pioneer.  Full of synths and belonging in the 80’s, this was how electro started, in my opinion anyway.

Gabriel Ananda - Open Up

He produced some real classics at the height of minimal a few years ago.  This is the first thing I have really enjoyed of his since then, it is minimal and it just sounds really good with a simple beat and some plinks and plonks of various kinds.

Darabi - Truckin'

House music but with a slight disco feel to it, very pleasant.

Clockwork - It's You Again (Lee Foss meets Robert James in the Art Department Remix)

This is just a bit silly having those 3 on the remix, 3 great discoveries from 2010, spooky Dracula style house music, lovely and dark.

Lee Foss - Pyramid Scheme

I know it has been a couple of weeks since I have added new tunes, apologies, I am back on top of it though and have quite a few discoveries.

Another super track from Lee Foss, slightly more upbeat perhaps than his others, a nice summer house sound albeit with a dark squelchy bassline.
