A frighteningly atmospheric halloween treat today from Ten Walls aka Mario Bassanov aka Marijus Adomaitis. This one groans ominously at you as it creaks to its climax. Unsettling enough to throw a spanner in the works of an unsuspecting punters shuffle routine.
Fouk is the production alias of Dutch duo Daniel Lesseman and Junktion, and they are foukin good! ‘Elevator Groove’ is a great track title as the chord’s that this track largely hinges on is like something you didn’t realise you heard in an elevator but end up humming all day, passing it onto unsuspecting victims as you go. Still all that aside this tracks simplicity is its strength and the reveal of an extremely hooky vocal doesn’t hurt. Full of hip swing and guaranteed to get your head doing that ‘tree in the wind’ nod this one is going to get a serious rinsing here at HOD HQ.
I love that feeling when someone reminds you of a track that’s been teetering on the edge of memory and lost forever. This remix is one of those. It’s a pretty straightforward edit of an iconic and amazing original by Fred Wesley. The perfect track to play at, you guessed it, a house party. This edit has enough bump to be played at those times in the party where the original is just a little on the light side. Make’s we wanna call up some friends, hide the valuables and tear my house a new one. You’re invited, just bring some hooch.
In this new monthly mix series from Magnier he will explore the world of harmonic mixing, or mixing in key. Each mix will be full of tracks in exactly the same key.
Have a listen below and see which key fits best for you.
A recent guest to our parties and all round gentleman Andy Hart has been going from strength to strength with his output. Always quite low slung and with the groove at the core this edit he put together for Midnight City is no different. Sandy Barber is one of our favourites here at HOD HQ and he’s done a brilliant job of working with the original elements and vocals to put together a patient dance-floor burner from a quality source. Fiyah!
