There’s always something for everyone in our series with Beatport known as The Beatport Box, where we bring you the best in Beatport exclusives on a weekly basis. This time around, we’ve got the latest Pets Recordings compilation, a big room banger from Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike’s Smash The House label, and the return of the elusive 16 Bit Lolitas. Happy spinning.

After a four-year hiatus, 16 Bit Lolitas have returned to Anjunadeep with the all-new Beat Organ EP. It features three tracks: the title track, From Far Away, and Friendly Neighbor.

Deep/Tech | Various Artists – Friends Will Carry You Home III, Pt. 1 [Pets]
Pets Recordings label heads Catz N Dogz have released another groundbreaking EP with the next edition of their Friends Will Carry You Home series. This time around, the Pets boys have collected tunes from Paco Wegmann, Trikk, Axel Boman, Kixnare (see what he did there?), and more in a six-track EP of deep and tech house bliss. Download the full EP here.
Big Room/Electro | Wolfpack & Bobby Puma – Jump (Original Mix) [Smash The House]
Wolfpack and Bobby Puma are climbing to the top with their new collaboration Jump on Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike’s Smash The House label. Jump was initially premiered during Miami as an “ID” track, then officially premiered on Danny Howard’s BBC Radio 1 Dance Anthems show. Upon pressing play, expect a high-octane heater that fuses the trendy Melbourne bounce sound with the mainstage energy of big room electro. Pick it up here.
Big Room/Electro | Martin Volt, Quentin State, Burgundy’s – Conspiracy (Original Mix) [Protocol]
Martin Volt, Quentin State, and Burgundy’s form a terrific trio for their new release on Nicky Romero’s Protocol Recordings, Conspiracy. The title is a perfect fit given the dark and brooding nature of the breakdown that finally culminates in one helluva smashing drop. Is Elvis still alive? You may arrive at the answer after one listen. Get in on the Conspiracy here.
