The legendary producer duo Felix Buxton and Simon Ratcliffe known as BASEMENT JAXX, joined forces with celebrated Sci-Fi short film director Saman Kesh (Calvin Harris, Placebo, Vitalic) for this groundbreaking 6-minute video. The storied “Never Say Never” video captures JAXX Industries in their zealous effort to bring dancing back to mankind via twerking by creating the futuristic TW3RK-BOT1.0. The JAXX themselves had previously sought to advance the cause of global rump-shaking with their track “Twerk” from their 2009 Scars album.
Gothenburg based producer Jonas Rathsman follows up from the hugely successful ‘Hope I’m Wrong’ with ‘Skepparkrans’, a track that has been gaining some serious dance-floor credence since he closed his Boiler Room LA set with it nearly twelve months ago. After countless requests for its release, this dancefloor bomb is finally available via French Express.
With Arches eagerly anticipated debut EP set for release on 28th July, the duo have taken it upon themselves to share the B side to smash ‘There’s A Place’ .’Move On’ shows a darker edge to the Arches sound. Anchored down by a driving bass line and thumping kick the track has a techno flavour, which is delicately juxtaposed by some truly euphoric vocal builds and pads. It’s a musical tight rope not too many artists could walk, but Arches pull it off with aplomb; hardly surprising given the duo’s extensive solo experience as Moonlight Matters & Sound of Stereo.
Fresh Juice teams up with Baile Musik to present the first in the imprints vinyl series, a four-track release from Fresh Juice members Crocodile Soup, Jessica Diaz and Monika Ross accompanied by Dutch underground queen Lilith.
Titled ‘L’Homme Mystere’, the initial track from Crocodile Soup features eerie buzzes and crackles on top of a groovy bassline, whilst trickling rainfall adds to its subterranean depth. ‘Mani Padme’ features a synergy between intricate percussion and rolling bass that Lilith has convincingly mastered, with a melismatic chant erupting midway in a stunning testament to the artist’s inspiring experimentalism.
In ‘Tres’ Jessica Diaz makes sure to lay down a solid kick, whilst subtle atmospherics and dubby synths add an underlying tension to the mix. To conclude, ‘Madame Magic’ from Monika Ross delivers a mesmeric piece of tech house that comes equipped with shuffling hats, hypnotic chimes, as well as elements of jazz.

Inspired by the album “White Women” and a playful exchange of ideas via Twitter with Chromeo, DJ E-Clyps unveils a dark and sexy LP with a name as bold as the music itself, entitled “That Black Dude”. DJ E-Clyps unleashes a 6 track onslaught of throbbing basslines, walls of drums, and blurring genre lines production to show the world he is a rising star in house music. Unlike the debut album “Flapjackin”, he strays away from the funky/disco samples in this second full-length and journeys into the realm of big beats, haunting deep vocals, and rumbling synth bass lines.
