Marco Resmann – Thursdate (Steve Bug Remix) [Watergate]
Deriving from Marco’s latest Life About To Change EP, Steve Bug shelves out a progressive revamp that has “Germany” written all over it. Once again, Berlin’s reputable Watergate label bestows us with a string of dancefloor-appropriated symphonies–the perfect complement to any sunrise set.
Re.you – Do I Know (Anja Schneider Remix) [Mobilee]
Mobilee’s female figurehead brandishes her harmonic hypnotism in this recent re-press for label-mate Re.you. We have to hand it to Anja though: when it comes to spacey minimal trips, no one does it better. Don’t be intimidated by the track’s near 10-minute duration; just let the smooth bass-taps sink in.
Re.you – Hurt Me (Original Mix) [Mobilee]
“It hurts so good!”–the organic percussion, that is. Even without Anja’s tenderly touch, fellow German producer Re.you can still lay down a proper bassline, as demonstrated in this down-tempo drum tease. If you listen closely enough, you can even hear the discreet shuffling of the various instrumentations. Give it to us nice and slow, Re.you.
Alexi Delano & Shaun Reeves feat. Charlotte Carter-Allen – The Breeze (Original Mix) [Visionquest]
Imagine a heavenly draft of warm house music splendor as it sifts through your eardrums–in essence, that’s the ideal metaphor for the newest Visionquest single. Usually one to forge more abrasive techno rompers, Alexi tones it down a notch in pairing up with quest-force youngster, Shaun Reeves. If you’re a fan of vibrant chords and jazzy female vocals, this track is for you.
Cueber feat. Marrisa Guzman – No Doubt (Shlomi Aber Remix) [Defected]
Rule of thumb going forward: whenever you glimpse the word “Defected” alongside a release title, expect to hear a quality tune. Perhaps my personal favorite selection from this week’s edition, Shlomi’s plush refurbishment for Cueber’s original resembles the dreamy house ballad that I’ve long since yearned for. “No doubt” this remix is a necessity for any DJs dabbling in progressive tech house.
