Welcome back to our series with Beatport known as The Beatport Box, where we bring you the best of Beatport exclusives on a weekly basis. This week, Sasha drops his first solo track in four years, Richard Durand breathes fresh air to trance, Howling releases a to-die-for remix EP on Modeselektor’s Monkeytown Records, and more.
Deep/Tech | Emanuel Satie – All Things Go EP [Gruuv]
Emanuel Satie joins the Gruuv family with his first release, the All Things Go EP. With each and every track fitting perfectly into a four-on-the-floor set, this is a nice, fat four-track slab of club-crushing meat that will find its way into the crates of the world’s top party-starters. And there’s an Audiojack remix? We’ll have seconds! Pick it up here.
Deep/Progressive | Sasha – Vapourspace (Original Mix) [Last Night On Earth]
It’s been four years, but Welsh legend Alex Coe (you’d likely know him by Sasha) is finally releasing new solo material. Vapourspace is a timeless testament to all that has ever been right with electronic music. Its brooding drive puts it well beyond the petty genre debates that plague most releases in dance music today, and sits itself rightly on the pedestal “great dance music.” Get it here.
Deep/Tech | Howling – Signs Remixes [Monkeytown]
With their highly anticipated album coming this year, it came as no surprise their first single remix EP came stacked with some of the hottest names in dance. Kalabrese, MATOM, Radio Slave & Thomas Gandey, and Rødhåd (especially Rødhåd) have led Howling in a clud-focused direction. Melancholy pop meets sophisticated arrangements and makes the Signs remix EP one of the hottest releases of 2015 so far. Grab it here.
Trance | Richard Durand – Oxygen (Original Mix) [Terminal4]
You can always turn to Richard Durand for giving a breath of fresh air to the genre of trance, and this time he answered that calling so literally that he named the track Oxygen. This one makes you hold out for the drop, but the wait is so worth it. Purchase here.
Trance | Standerwick, Philippe El Sisi & Ana Criado – Magic Light (Original Mix) [How Trance Works]
Standerwick, Philippe El Sisi and Ana Criado working together on a track–how did the #trancefamily get so lucky? Magic Light is wrought with 138 BPM of uplifting trance euphoria. It was also premiered by Armin van Buuren at ASOT700 and is featured on his main compilation A State Of Trance 2015, so this is definitely one to pay attention to. Download here.
