Welcome back to our series with Beatport known as The Beatport Box, where we bring you the best of Beatport exclusives on a weekly basis. This week, Gaiser drops his third LP, Tchami tackles an Oliver $ track, Monstercat flies the flag for true electro house, and more.
Minimal/Techno | Gaiser – False Light [Minus]
Besides Richie Hawtin himself, no member of the Minus family can deliver the stripped-back edge and analog groove to minimal techno quite like Gaiser. False Light is his third album, and undoubtedly his most natural LP to date. Jon explains: “My main idea while working on this album was to go into the studio and have as much fun as possible. I wanted to create something where each track complemented each other, where all of the tracks relate to each other in a way so that the whole album tells a story. But ultimately, I wanted it to be a fun story.” Get it here.
Tech House | Pirupa – Can U Hear Me EP [Saved]
Continuing his triad of tech-tastic dominance, Pirupa releases this relentless three-tracker through Saved Records. Featuring the signature shuffle he’s become known for since his breakout hit Party Non Stop, any track on this phenomenal EP pours gasoline on an already properly sparked dancefloor. Grab it here.
House | Oliver $ & Jimi Jules – Pushing On (Tchami Remix) [Ultra]
Not that we need to sing Tchami’s praises anymore than we already have, but the man has done it again with his groovy house remix of Pushing On. Tchami is leading the push to make house music “housey” again, and we couldn’t be happier with the results. Get it here.
Big Room/Tribal | Tom Staar & Kryder – Jericho (Original Mix) [Size]
Tom Staar and his frequent collab partner Kryder always know how to whip out the big room gems that you don’t feel like you’ve already heard a hundred times before. This time, they’re paying tribute to the biblical city of Jericho with a horn-laden buildup and drop sure to knock down the walls of any city. Purchase here.
Electro House | Laszlo – Supernova (Original Mix) [Monstercat]
There’s not much known about the Netherlands-based complextro phenom known as Laszlo, but the one thing you should know is that he’s cranking out some of the finest melodic electro house in the scene these days. Bathed in a kind of starry eyed, 16-bit innocence you rarely come across in a genre dominated by pummeling kicks and brash sawtooth leads, his style is a tribute (even if unintentional) to the PLUR spirit that brought EDM to where it is today. Pick it up here.
