Deep/Tech | Wareika – The New Beat Generation EP [Supernature]
Finnebassen has been on a continual hot streak through 2014. With originals and remixes on some of the hottest hyped labels in the biz, it’s no wonder he was scooped up by Audiofly’s Supernature imprint to rework Wareika’s A Night At Hoppetosse with his signature style. A marriage of laid back drive and melancholic deepness, this one suits the late night just right. Grab it here.
Tech House | wAFF – Freeks EP [Cocoon]
If you’re looking to lay down the 4×4 groove hammer during your next set, it would be hard–wait no, impossible to go wrong with either track from wAFF’s Freeks EP. This is no-frills house right here. Purchase here.
Electro/Glitch Hop | Kick The Habit – Day Jobs EP [SectionZ]
Crunchy electro/glitch duo Kick The Habit duo dropped their latest EP this week and as expected, it’s another beautifully constructed sonic sculpture. Showing their prowess behind the desk and maxing our every adjustable parameter in all their hardware and VSTs, their Day Jobs release is a mind-melting amalgamation of party-starting sweetness. Get it here.
Electro | Nom De Strip – The Game [Rising]
Nom De Strip doesn’t know how to make a bad song, and the electro genius has delivered once again with The Game, a track that perfectly walks the line between tech, electro, and even complextro. Those scary vocals sure up the suspense of the track as well. Get it here.

Famous for his blistering Headf**k edits of popular tracks, Ben Nicky brings the energy once again on his new collaboration with Thomas Mengel and Sue McLaren, Heart Go.
