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, Alex Bau drops some Berghain-ready techno on Cocoon, Congorock proves once again why he’s the king of tribal electro, Bedouin whisper words of wisdom, and more.
Deep House | Bedouin – Whispering Words Of Wisdom EP [Kindisch]
The Brooklyn-based duo of Tamer Malki and Rami Abousabe, aka Bedouin, has been making some serious headway in the melodic deep house scene since their Mirage EP dropped in summer of 2014. Putting out their second release through Kindisch this year, the pair harken to days of BPM Festivals past with their spaced out, kaleidoscopic journey of Eastern influenced sounds and organically articulated production. Perfect for early morning dancefloors. Get it here.
Tech House/Techno | Various Artists – Sincopat Remixed 04
Packed with the kind of quality we’ve come to expect from the Sincopat label, the fourth installment of their remixed series includes some seriously fresh up and coming talent in the tech house scene. Featuring moody reworks from Pazkal, Wavekiki, and Third Son, this is the kind of remix package we know will find its way into the digital crates of some of the genre’s top jocks. Pick it up here.
Techno | Alex Bau – On Synth EP [Cocoon]
“Bavarian Techno Machine” Alex Bau has once again proven that quality, hard-hitting techno can come from places other than Berlin and Detroit. Dropping On Synth through Sven Vath’s legendary Cocoon label, Bau throws in some extra dirt on the beat and bass programming to create a workout that could be mistaken for a release from a Berghain resident. Grab it here.
Big Room/Electro | Congorock & Mindshake – Nok Nok (Original Mix) [Ultra]
The king of tribal electro, Congorock, has teamed up with up-and-comer Mindshake for Nok Nok, a rough mainstage heater with a trancier-than-usual breakdown that keeps things different enough to make it stick out from all the other big room tracks rolling out by the boatload on a daily basis. Purchase here.
Trance | Tempo Giusto & Jace Headland – Angry Dwarf (Original Mix) [Lange]
Psy-trance meets electro sensibilities in the latest from Lange Recordings, Tempo Giusto and Jace Headland’s Angry Dwarf. There are so many influences going on from so many subgenres it’s almost hard to take it all in, but one thing is for sure–this is an absolutely brilliant release. Download here.
