Reelow offers up a real-deal, no-frills tech-house killer with "Illegal Jump"

By Matt Ferry

Sometimes, as much as we all love our personal stash of secret weapons, it’s impossible to not reveal to the world the unknown dancefloor bomb of one of your favorite producers. Aptly landing on Serkal’s first volume of Secret Weapons, Reelow’s “Illegal Jump” is one such track: undeniable funk, a jack factor that does more spinal damage than a 900-mph head-on collision, and an air of cold, calculated sleaze that seems impossible to achieve within the modern tech-house sound.

Last year, Joe Ford topped my list of “artists to watch for 2014.” “Stride,” which arrived last year on Shogun Audio’s annual compilation Way Of The Warrior 2, was his big breakthrough as it moved up the charts, alongside the other diverse sounds of his EPs on Caliber Music and Inspected Records. A youthful producer with a veteran ability, Ford returns to Shogun this year with more proof that he is not only a capable producer, but one that will continue to rise to the top.

After a successful 2013 for Loco Dice and Martin Buttrich’s Desolat imprint, the label returns with another mind-blowingly pumpy and tech-tinged compilation for your listening delight. As expected, highlights are hard to pick out from a selection of producers as revered as those on Desolat, but if we had to choose, Anthea’s “Booty Call” is filled with the perfect amount of chuggin’ late-night wonk and dizzying roll that we love here at BP HQ.

Vindata finds a perfect soulful pitch with singer Kenzie May on "All I Really Need"

Bridging the gap from US to the UK, Los Angeles duo Vindata invites London vocalist Kenzie May to open their new EP, For One to Follow, with “All I Really Need.” The EP lands on Kastle’s own Symbols Recordings, so it’s not terribly surprising that it follows a very similar vibe to his, with futuristic bits of R&B and electronic music blended together to create a soulful compound.

King Unique gives Henry Saiz's "Rave Flute" a stompy rework

By Matt Ferry

As rare as a galactic alignment, two of our in-house Beatport faves have joined forces to create a undeniable four-to-the-floor stomper. King Unique’s rework of Henry Saiz’ “Rave Flute” is peak-hour house in its truest form. With a classic shuffle, growling bass, and samples form the old school, this is a serious dancefloor groover.
