Thomas Gandey - Piano Track

Thomas Gandey, also known as Cagedbaby, has just dropped an absolute stormer of a track to be released on Southern Fried Records, it's called 'The Piano Track' and its got that textbook Gandey disco groove, with a fantastic, atmospheric piano riff in it. With no download to be found, you'll have to be satisfied with the Soundcloud preview, well worth a listen!


If this sort of thing is your vibe then get yourself down to Heavy Gossip & Ultragroove's Halloween Ball tonight, I'm playing solo from 12, with the freshest house and disco cuts, get on it!

Tim Green - Cherry

If you're anything like a regular user of this blog then you'll know how wild I go for anything Tim Green touches, from his early work like 'Old Sunshine' and 'Make Me' with Emerson Todd as well as his huge remix of Cassius '99' through to the more recent stuff like his pumping remix of Argy's 'Unreliable Virgin' and the phenomenal 'Lemon' and it's safe to say he's not bucking the trend anytime soon. His new jam is a disco infused tech-house banger, 'Cherry'. Without a doubt one of my favourite tunes of this year and sure to be a staple in our sets over the coming few months, check it out below:-

Tim Green - Cherry (Rebellion) [Pre-release Preview] by timgreen

Juicy! DJs Winter 2011 Promo Mix

So we've just finished off 2 mixes, one for the Edinburgh Evening News Clubbing podcast, which we'll be dropping later, the second is our brand new promo mix for Winter 2011. We've gone in on an electro tip for this one, aiming it more at the students and packing it with acapellas to make it more dancefloor orientated. It features some fantastic disco from men of the moment, Plastic Plates, Aeroplane (who has just dropped his In Flight Entertainment Mix), The Magician and Joe Goddard, before moving onto more fidgety sounds courtesy of Foamo and Say Yes To Another Excess (otherwise known as StopMakingMe and one half of The C90s) before finishing off with Fake Blood and Brodinski, in a whirlwind 40 minutes. The cherry on the cake however is that the mix features one of our productions, Ian's, as yet untitled, jazz fuelled banger, big look!

Have a listen, leave some feedback and if you like what you heard we're available for bookings up and down the country (preferably Edinburgh).

Give it a download here.

David K - Ghost Train

Just a quick one today from me, about the fantastic new release on Visionquest, by David K, Pete Tong gave it the ultimate seal of approval 2 weeks ago, making it the essential new tune and it's fully deserved! As with any Visionquest release the production is fantastic, its got a really nice, moody vocal and phenomenal bassline, turn it up and get hyped for the weekend!

Ron May, Monkey Safari, Foamo & J.Philip...

It's just under 2 weeks until radio broadcast starts back and we're both getting anxious to slot back into Fresh Air's Friday line-up. So to tide you over until the show starts back here are a few tunes and a mix...

Ron May - Limpopo (Original Mix)

This is some really funky tech house, reminds me alot of Ray Foxx's 'The Trumpeter' which was massive not too long ago. Don't know much about this guy but he uses loads of flutes and trumpets in this tune, absolute banger.

Monkey Safari - Son (Original Mix)

Monkey Safari are two German producers from Halle with some groovin deep/funky disco house vibes and they've just come out with this really chilled release 'Son'

Foamo - Ocean Drive (Original Mix)

Foamo - Celestial (Original Mix)

Next up are two real curve balls from Foamo. Although he was a pioneer of the fidget/bassline movement, both of these tune have a real balkan feel to them. The massive basslines are still there but are no longer the focus of the track, i sincerely hope this is his taste maturing because i'm loving what i'm hearing

Finally is a mix i picked up on Resident Advisor a while back, some absolutely amazing deep tunes in there, well worth a listen...

Fake Blood, Emerson Todd, Jonas Rathsman & Coat Of Arms.

I'm writing this, still very delicate from a massive party last night, Zabiela & Maya Jane Coles smashed it! The Liquid Rooms was rammed and the Musika faithful were loving it! Zabiela stage dived at the end and the crowds adulation was clear,truly phenomenal! Aside from that theres been a host of new tunes cropping up, a lot of which come from Jaymo & Andy George's Thursday night INDJWT show which is essential listening!

Niki & The Dove - The Drummer (Fake Blood Remix) - fantastic remix from Fake Blood, check out Danny Daze's interpretation too!

Emerson Todd - Say What - Gorgeous tech-house.

Coat Of Arms - Lovin' Together - Phenomenal tune on pets Recordings from the creators of the smash 'Is This Something'.
