Globally renowned dance music icon Pete Tong teams up with underground house head John Monkman to producer an undisputed summer hit with PHØENIX.

Deep/Tech | Luigi Rocca & Hugo – Beach Of Bones EP [303Lovers]
We’ve been waiting for this release for weeks, now and the time has finally come. Two of Turin’s finest, Luigi Rocca and Hugo, team up to make some of the freshest Italian tech house we’ve heard this year with the Beach Of Bones EP. Seriously sinister low end matched with sharp top lines make either track on this EP a highlight of any late night set. Get it here.
House | David Tort – Bad Habits (Original Mix) [X]
The man behind one of the most underrated tracks of 2014, The Pleasure Dome, has returned with a high-energy house heater called Bad Habits. Space Miami resident David Tort turns up the tribal for a track that hopefully will fly higher on the radar than the previously mentioned Pleasure Dome did. Grab it here.
Drum & Bass | Teddy Killerz – Hyperspeed EP [RAM]
Having seen releases on OWSLA, Bad Taste, and RAM, Russian bass trio Teddy Killerz return to the latter label for four tracks of drum & bass mayhem, led by EP title track Hyperspeed. Each of the tracks have a name related to elements of deep space and interstellar travel, and at 170 BPM, what better soundtrack to go racing through the galaxy at the speed of light? Download here.
