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 a massive collaboration between Dubfire and Miss Kittin, the return of Noisia, a Dope track from Jewelz & Sparks, and more.
Progressive House | Cazzette – Weapon (EDX’s Acapulco At Night Remix) [PRMD]
EDX’ latest remix, a take on Weapon by Cazzette, is further proof of his studio genius. Feel-good melodies and a lovely vocal complement warm kickdrums and expertly placed percussion from start to end. This is one for the outdoor festivals, in the prime of the moment when everyone is feeling amazing and ready to keep the party at its peak. Procure it here.
House | Jesse Rose – Fly Tonight [Play It Down]
It takes a lot of confidence to use nearly identical cover art from Roulé Records (the legendary underground house label run by Daft Punk’s Thomas Bangalter), but Jesse Rose’s latest track for his Play It Down imprint is strong enough that the older ravers will gladly allow it to happen. A proper house banger, Fly Tonight is a DJ tool made to ignite the party into a frenzy, plain and simple. This is absolutely essential for those housier sets. Purchase here.
Techno | Dubfire feat. Miss Kittin – Exit EP [SCI+TEC]
The combination of Dubfire and Miss Kittin is enough to make us salivate, with her trademark vocals and his perfectly produced techno stylings; we knew this one was going to be a winner before we even hit the play button. Exit, on Dubfire’s SCI+TEC imprint, is a bouncy techno cut with clever editing techniques we’ve not heard before. The EP comes complete wtih an instrumental as well as Midian, a darker offering for the more serious moments. Grab it here.
Big Room/Electro | Jewelz & Sparks – Dope [Flamingo]
Jewelz & Sparks may have a shorter name now, but their music still hits just as hard. Their newest release, Dope, once again shows that they know how to make mainstage tracks that still sound unique–a feat that is becoming harder and harder to pull off. The drop in this one is just plain fun and sits on some interesting chords not often heard in big room tracks. We sincerely hope these guys start getting the heightened recognition they deserve. Dope is out now on Fedde Le Grand’s Flamingo Recordings.
Drum & Bass | Noisia – Purpose EP [Vision]
Drum & bass trio Noisia have once again won the genre with their eight track Purpose EP, out now on their own Vision Recordings. The boys are known for their second-to-none production skills, and this shines through in every nook and cranny of this release. Purpose also features guest appearances from D&B heavyweights Phace, Evol Intent, and Prolix. If you are even a marginal fan of the faster sounds of breakbeat music, this one is not to miss. Pick it up here.
