We’re back with our series with Beatport known as The Beatport Box, where we bring you the best in Beatport exclusives on a weekly basis. This week we’ve got the latest from Maceo Plex and Justin Jay, a W&W take on a World Cup anthem, and more.
Deep/Tech | Justin Jay – Instincts EP [dirtybird]
dirtybird sweetheart Justin Jay is back with another stellar EP. Instincts comes after an appearance on Claude VonStroke’s Urban Animal remix album and furthers Justin’s steady rise as he finishes college while interning at the dirtybird office. Expect dubby basslines, techno sensibilities, rapid melodies, and spaced-out vocals on this incredibly diverse EP. Pick it up here.
Techno | Maceo Plex – Conjure Two EP [Minus]
Richie Hawtin’s Minus imprint has been quiet as of late, with only a few releases arriving so far in 2014. The latest, is simply huge, and hopefully a sign of more to come. Maceo Plex has delivered three diverse cuts for Conjure Two, with the main track being a tribute to Hawtin’s Space Ibiza residency. With pummeling rhythms and out of this world sounds, this is surely a three-tracker you’re going to need to get. Procure it here.
House | ATFC – Dazzle (Cristian Varela Remix) [Yin Yang]
One of Defected’s biggest releases in 2011 has a new remix from Spaniard Cristian Varela on forward-thinking tech label Yin Yang. Latin-infused house is what you can expect on this one, complete with a large brass section. This is one that will likely turn many a head in Ibiza this summer. Be dazzled here.
Big Room/Electro | Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, Diplo, Fatboy Slim feat. Bonde Do Role & Pin – Eparrei (W&W Remix) [Smash The House]
What? Dimitri Vegas, Like Mike, Diplo, Fatboy Slim, W&W all on one release? A collaborative effort like this is obviously one to take notice of, and the audio results do not disappoint. A wicked blend of EDM’s biggest influences and a clever usage of Brazilian sounds, Eparrei is a clever and catchy hit in the making. The remix from W&W only sweetens the release with their expertly crafted remix. Grab it here.
Big Room/Electro | Jacob van Hage – Raid (Original Mix) [Flashover]
Already receiving gigantic support from Martin Garrix, Leon Bolier, Ferry Corsten, and Markus Schulz, Raid by Jacob van Hage is quite simply one of the biggest festival hits you’ve not heard yet. Filled with euphoria-inducing breakdowns and that bass-heavy kick the masses love, Raid is a track designed to destroy the biggest rooms. Purchase here.
