While talk of the town may rest upon the more commercial avenues of electronic music, international tech-house outfit Pleasurekraft unite alongside American peers Jaceo and Vedic with a thick-skinned installment for 2000 & One’s 100% Pure imprint with “Skin Song of Skull Island.”
Kreature (aka Ashley Burgoyne) had a solid 2012, dropping tracks and remixes on Kumasi, Bits and Pieces, and Nurvous while his 2011 rework of Cubiq and Real Nice’s “Had Enough” was still setting flames to main rooms from LA to Ibiza. With much in the pipeline for the Leeds-based deep-house producer—including a remix on Chase & Status’ MTA Records, a new album, and his brand-new remix of 16 Bit Lolitas’ “Fat Fly”—we’re excited to see his continued evolution of the deep-house sound, and what 2013 holds.
Well, we’ve got a few funny surprises for you in today’s roundup: First up, there is a real-life Inspector Morse, and someone’s made a nice documentary on the young Norwegian fellow. And two, it’s true… Deadmau5 is in the new Dave Grohl-directed Soundgarden video. Click on through to check it out.
Beatport Live is proud to announce that Bruno Pronsato will be performing a special live set on Wednesday, February 13, from our Berlin outpost.

Simian Mobile Disco may not be letting their new Live album out of the bag until April 15 (on their own Delicacies imprint), but they’ve given us something pretty darn special for you today—some unseen footage from that recording, made in Philadelphia last December. Last year, Mssrs Ford and Shaw spoke with us about their huge amount of gear, much of which you’ll see in this clip below being used to recreate live versions of hits like “Hustler,” “It’s The Beat,” and “Cruel Intentions.”
Brighton, UK-based producers Kieron McTernan and Serg Hall have been popping out releases as My Digital Enemy since 2006, with hits like “Wasted” (and its amazing Lys remix) becoming staples in many house heads’ music libraries. Fast-forward to today, and the duo is still creating anthems, but for a whole new batch of house fans.
Last year, the boys had a string of successful releases like “Got To Be Strong” and “New Sensation,” both of which held steady on the Beatport house charts for multiple weeks.
Of course, they haven’t just been cooped up in the studio. They’ve also launched their own label, Zulu Records, which promises to deliver uplifting and memorable tribal grooves for years to come. What do McTernan and Hall have up their sleeve for 2013? Outside of releases on Munich’s Great Stuff Recordings, there are talks of a Zulu night in their hometown. We caught up with the two to talk about running a label, their latest Beatport Mixes, and their chart-topping hits.
