We’re back with the 21st outing of our series with Beatport known as The Beatport Box, where we bring you the best of Beatport exclusives on a weekly basis. We’re getting deep and techy this time with Green Velvet, Carl Cox, Nicole Moudaber, and more, so put your party shades on and turn up the volume.
Deep/Tech/Techno | Green Velvet & Jay Lumen – It’s All About Me [Relief]
It’s a Green Velvet party on this release, with the DJ/producer using both his Green Velvet and Cajmere monikers on two different reworks of It’s All About Me, a collaboration with Jay Lumen. The release is even on his personal label, Relief Records, so if you just can’t get enough of the quirky Chicagoan, be sure to pick this one up.
Deep House | Various Artists – Summer Riot III [Futureboogie]
Don’t fear, folks–summer is not over yet. Even though the temperatures may be starting to cool down, we’re still lucky to have some hot time ahead of us. The latest EP from Futureboogie serves as a helping hand to extend the warm weather vibes with a superb four-track release jam-packed with various shades of house music flavor from artists like Outboxx, Waifs & Strays, and Kemback. Proper feel-good tunes with a bit of disco, some incredible basslines, and ultimately solid music from beginning to end. Get it here.
House | DJ Sneak – Moody Warehouse Music Vol. 2 [Magnetic]
Leave it to DJ Sneak, the original house gangster, to provide a release of dependable, timeless club cuts. Moody Warehouse Music Vol. 2 follows in the tradition of his previous effort by offering a selection floor-fillers with focus on effectiveness rather than gimmicks. Across four tracks, DJ Sneak offers jackin’ house, disco loops, clever samples, stomping’ kick drums, and enough groove to satisfy even the most jaded of club patrons. Effective DJ tracks for a good night out. Purchase here.
Techno | Carl Cox – Kommen Zusammen (Nicole Moudaber Remix) [Intec]
We’ve been waiting for this one for quite some time–proper techno royalty here with Carl Cox being remixed by Nicole Moudaber. Kommen Zusammen was already a huge release in its original form, and the Nicole Moudaber reworking boosts it up into even bigger territories. Rough and ready, the remix captures a dark and devastating vibe for the moments in the night where everyone wants to just get down and dirty, stomp their feet around the floor, and party like tomorrow is never going to arrive. Download here.
Deep/Big Room | Clean Bandit & Sharna Bass – Extraordinary Remixes [Big Beat]
Everyone’s heard of Clean Bandit after the monumental success of Rather Be, and the UK quartet continues to please the masses with a new remix package of their track Extraordinary, featuring the vocals of newcomer Sharna Bass. The two remixes on this release are very different from another, with Martin Ikin providing a bouncy deep house take, while Still Young provide a melodic big room mix. Both excellent reworks in their own right. Grab the package here.
