Rachel Row – Follow The Step (Justin Martin Remix)

Rachel Row has been honing in her musical talent since she was 8 years old, and over the past several years, Rachel has been songwriting, producing, and developing her signature style. In 2006, Rachel began collaborating with KiNK (Ovum/Rush Hour) by providing amazing vocals and live performances. Rachel has defined herself and her sound as adding warmth to the dark sound of electronica. In her own words:

“I am really into the 90s UK rave sound – breakbeat, jungle and neo-techno. I like the idea of marrying this sound to the rich soul music from the 60s and inviting a bit of 80s pop music as the maid of honour…oh yeah, and a bouquet of classical vocals”.

Since 2003, Justin Martin, of Dirtybird renown, has been pleasing EDM listeners with a very unique sound. With an almost effortless groovy style, Justin combines elements of tech house and deep house, while adding his own flare. And with this remix of Rachel Row’s new song, Follow the Step, Justin has proved again why this funky sound is a force to be reckoned with.

Jay Lumen – Beat Drops (Take Me to the Garage) [Original Mix]

Hungarian based tech-house virtuoso Jay Lumen released a series of heaters yesterday on Amsterdam’s longest running record label, 100%Pure, for his Play Cool The Old School EP. On this EP, Jay rocks classic House top sounds overlaid on sexy, spacey melodies. The tracks are a welcome dose of massive #techyes, and follow a massive performance at Space Miami over the weekend. The final track, Beat Drops (Take Me To The Garage) is a groovy dancefloor filler from start to finish, and Jay Lumen flips the vibe after the second drop for a tasty sound experience into Jack Beats progressive-wobble territory.

Pogo:Mix

Nick Bertke is an artisan with sights and sounds, masterfully reworking famous movie clips into musical compositions. Utilizing dozens to hundreds of small loops, Bertke’s alterego “Pogo”, piece together the sound content from the clips into a montage wonderfully disguised as a song. He then further composes the looped images (with sound bytes) into a fascinating visual experience. I can’t even fathom the amount of time that goes into each half of the work, but Pogo has mangaged to publish over thirty projects, and counting. Releases include “Pulp Fiction“, Scooby Doo, and Disney’s “Up“. Speaking of Disney, listen carefully during “Upular” and tell me if you can discerne the hidden message.

Each one of these videos is breathaking, I highly recommend watching them all. The next one may be from a generation that doesn’t jive with EDM, but it’s a brilliant show and concept all the same.

Notable Comment: “With childrens’ shows like this, it’s no wonder my generation all grew up stoners” Also; “Skrillex is a band, they are good. Check them out.” Swear.
