Monte

It’s Friday so I’m headed to Santa Cruz for a little sunshine. It’s supposed to be nice out this weekend which is awesome. Regardless of the weather, Friday always needs some good tunes to get your blood pumping.

Cue Monte… who takes you back to the “Beverly Hills Cop” and “Miami Vice” aesthetic, but with a deep and solid funk groove lurking beneath. An absolute synth freak able to make any sound you could possibly think of almost in seconds on an array of devices.

Here I have an original production which was shared with me from a friend and a remix I just checked out which I’m loving the f out of. Friday tunes indeed. Git Down.

Random Rab is one of my favorites and I’m looking forward to my next chance to see him which is hopefully in SF. I downloaded the sunrise pic above from Burning Man because it’s awesome. In doing so, I’ve wanted to feature a song of his.

His library is extensive and there’s a ton to choose from. Since it’s a sunrise pic here’s the appropriately titled Dawn Of The Endless day. Enjoy. Oh and please support him and buy the track like I did.

Here’s a nice recap video of the Scandanavian Boat Party at Dimensions with a superb track from Compuphonic. The track in the video is actually the Disjokke remix.

Both the original and remix are great. diskJokke’s version kinda blows out the ending which I love. Check em both out.

Mainline

To celebrate Tensnake’s long overdue return to Defected In The House at Pacha Ibiza this Saturday, here we’re giving you the shortest of tastes of the brand new Tensnake single forthcoming on Defected.

Released in the very near future on Beatport, Traxsource, What People Play and Itunes, ‘Mainline’ is a true return to form for Tensnake and features the vocals talents of a certain Syron – the fantastic guest vocalist behind Rudimental’s recent hit ‘Spoons’.

Syron will be exclusively performing the song live for the very first time this Saturday at Pacha alongside Tensnake. Saturday also sees the last of the now legendary sets from Solomun at Defected In The House at Pacha. So with Solomun, Tensnake and this singles live debut, Saturday is most definitely one not to miss.

Tensnake ft. Syron – Mainline

Sleepless

Midland just dropped a track on his soundcloud page earlier today. It is a relentless flowing dub mix of Flume. I had just missed him at Dimensions Festival. Stuff like this always happens at festivals which is unfortunate. I was majorly bummed in this case.

Midland made his 2010 debut alongside longtime friend Pearson Sound with their anthemic “Your Words Matter”, a track that would go on to be placed in DJ Mag’s “100 most important house records” feature.

‘The now London based producer’s deft edits of Washed out, Boards of Canada and Caribou have also become firm favourites with many, winning over some diehard fans along the way.

As a DJ, Midland’s sets are unsurprisingly diverse, something witnessed at clubs from Fabric to Plastic People to Space in Ibiza, Horst in Berlin and Chinese Laundry in Sydney. As a result, he is just as likely to be seen playing alongside artists like Joy Orbison or Ben Ufo as he is James Zabiela, Steffi or Will Saul. With collaborations due to emerge with Breach and Pariah as well as a number of projects aimed at pushing his sound into uncharted areas, it’s a good bet you will find yourself dancing to something he’s had a hand in sooner rather than later.’

BONUS TRACK:

Dusky – Resin (Midland Reshape)

thetrashjuice has always been a big fan of Plastic Plates. This time, however, it’s a remixed PP track by Marseilles’ finest, Amine Edge and DΔNCE.

It has a darker edge with a groovy, yet powerful bass line and also features lyrics from Simon Lord.
