Krafty Kuts – Souls On Fire ft. Dynamite MC / Dynamite Soul

The other week Red Bull told us that Breaks was coming back. We would argue that Krafty Kuts is proof it never went away.

With his last single ‘Dope 2 Drop’ picking up feedback from the likes of Chuckie “so dope!”, Justin Prime “cool record!” and DJ BL3ND “Sick!!”, packing crowds in at his own night at London’s Brixton Electric club, a sold-out tour of Australia, constant touring across the UK, Europe and North America and residencies in both Dubai and Ibiza, Krafty remains one of the busiest globe-trotting DJs there is, in any genre!

More proof of Krafty’s prowess can be found with his new single ‘Souls On Fire’ featuring long time friend and collaborator Dynamite MC. Packed with funk and fueled by Krafty’s insatiable love of all things bassy, this two-track single will undoubtedly cement his place even further as the King of the (Break)beats!

Josh Philips – Get Get Down 2015

Paul Johnsons Get Get Down is definitely one of my favorite classics around. After much thought I decided that I felt it was time to recreate this classic with a 2015 mix! Finally finished, to give back to music lovers I have made this a free download, set to release today 2/17/15. I have been lucky enough to have massive early support from An21, Arno Cost, CID, Dannic, Dyro, Don Diablo, Feenixpawl, Guy Garret, Justin Prime, Loopers, Maarcos, Mednas, Michael Brun, Misha K, Norman Doray, Revero, Sevag, THEO, Tom Tyger, Tony Romera, just to name a few. I had an absolute blast making this as I LOVE Paul Johnsons Original version. From the catchy vocals, to the house piano hooks, the entire song just screams summer, fun, and confidence; and I have translated that and melded that with my own organic house sound for a really fun tune that i can call my own!

HOW TOMO HIRATA BANGS THE JAPANESE EDM DRUM

JAPAN is emerging as a new base for EDM – and TOMO HIRATA stands at the forefront of it all. A tireless promoter and believer in the global sound of EDM, he is proud to announce his new single TAIKO – released on the French top label DJ CENTER RECORDS. The track features a relenteless beat, based on the traditional Japanese taiko instrument. International response has been great so far with great comments from leading Djs all accross the world. Sidney Samson: “I’m gonna put your song in my next radio show for sure!”Quentin Mosimann: “Full Support” Plastik Funk: “yeah! nice tune and perfect for the festivals!!” Jetfire: “cool track!” Justin Prime: “Dope”
TOMO HIRATA originally debuted in the early days of dance music. HOOJ CHOONS, the infuential UK based label released his first vinyl record in 1990 and ever since he’s been Djing and producing. Around 1994, techno really exploded in Japan and the whole dance scene started to grow. Tomo and his friend Yo-C’s had a lot of success with the ‘X-tra’ events which became very popular in the mid to late 90’s. They featured UK Hard House & Trance and gathered 1000 people monthly. Tomo Hirata’s ‘Feels like Heaven’ was used in a Japanese horror movie and climbed up the Japanese mainstream pop chart. After that he compiled & mixed 10 Trance compilations for major record companies and supported Tiesto in Osaka in 2001.

Later his interests moved to deeper Trance/Psy-Trance and he released a track on Raja Ram’s TIP records. Yet, shortly after he almost stopped producing & DJing for 2-3 years. Then in 2009, one of the most talented and well known Japanese producers/DJs,Shinichi Osawa(Benny Benassi‘s friend) invited Tomo to his studio and they started making Electro together. Tomo was back in the game.

TOMO HIRATA: “I noticed David Guetta broke into US chart and my idol Tiesto made a track with Diplo. It was very surprising to me as I believed America was the country with almost no interest in electronic dance music . It seemed the scene in the USA got bigger and bigger however. It reminded me of the first House explosion in Europe between the late 80’s to early 90’s.

But in Japan,strangely noone including record companies/clubs and DJs were aware of this new EDM movement.- I really wanted to build the Japanese EDM scene. I spoke to EMI music Japan and ageHa,Tokyo’s biggest venue to start a Japanese EDM scene. This resulted in 3 compilations for EMI and the first EDM specialized mega event in Japan. I also started my own label/party for Japanese producers/DJs and the first EDM specialized EDM radio show on Japan’s most popular dance station BlockFM.

Now EDM has a strong base in Japan. Ultra will land in September and Avicii will play in October. A big explosion of EDM will be seen in later this year for sure. I’m quite happy to see this phenomenon even though record companies & clubs ignored my struggling at the first stage ; )”

Showtek & Justin Prime ft. Matthew Koma ‘Cannonball (Earthquake)’ Lazy Rich Remix

Considered one of the forward thinking leaders in the Electro-House genre Lazy Rich is back once again with another massive release. This time it’s his re-working of the monstrous ‘Cannonball’ by Showtek, out through Spinnin’ today.

Rich adds a big and bouncy feel to the anthemic track with his cutting edge form of electro house. His gut-wrenching intense and audaciously epic style has attracted collaboration and remix requests from some of the worlds biggest artists including Lady Gaga, Avicii, Fatboy Slim, Deadmau5, Chris Lake, Steve Aoki, Morgan Page, Zedd, Porter Robinson, and support from a long list of dance music heavyweights.

2014 will be the year for UK native and a resident of Canada, Lazy Rich. A whole series of original releases and remixes on several high profile record labels, and a hectic touring schedule, the future looks bright for this rising star… Who’s anything but Lazy.

Showtek & Justin Prime feat. Matthew Koma – ‘Cannonball (Earthquake)’ (Matrixx & Futurebound Remix)

Quintessential drum & bass duo Matrix & Futurebound step up to deliver a storming new rework of Showtek & Justin Prime’s anthemic club smash ‘Cannonball (Earthquake)’. Exuding the same euphoric charm as the original, the pair fuse electric drum & bass rhythms, contorted synth lines and rolling percussion with Koma’s soaring vocal to poignant effect, giving the track an entirely new dance floor dimension. Supremely polished and exquisite in it’s conception, Matrix & Futurebound have given ‘Cannonball (Earthquake)’ even more ammunition to make a real impression in the clubs.
