GUTI | Funkapella

This is a track off Guti's new EP 'Hope', the debut of Defected's breakout imprint DFTD.

Guti is an Argentinean artist with previous releases on Cadenza, Desolat and Crosstown Rebels. Funkapella has a nice summer feel, the vibe and groove reminiscent of Motor City Drum Ensemble's Raw Cuts Volume.

SOFTWAR | Believe / One Day

A new EP from Sydney duo Softwar is out now on Club Mod. Straight up deep house groove on Believe and a disco feel to One Day. Check the A and B below 


We've been enjoying this one from Joop Junior featured in Richie Hawtin's Boiler Room mix in Amsterdam, 2012. A copy is hard to come by at the moment with indications it may be found soon on Access Rekords, Joop's own label.

Joop is a young producer who grew up in The Hague and has released a number of tracks on M-Nus; one to watch.

PHREEK | Weekend

Weekend was originally released in 1978 by New York Disco outfit Phreek, and was later re-recorded in 1983 after Phreek reformed under the name Class Action. Despite the 1983 version finding greater success than its '78 counterpart, this original 12" version is so groovy you'll have a hard time suppressing the urge to start jiving spontaneously and uncontrollably.

DAFT PUNK | Revolution 909

With all the hype surrounding Daft Punk's upcoming album Random Access Memories, the long awaited follow-up to their arguably disappointing 2005 release Human After All, we thought it'd be a good opportunity to revisit one of the duo's earliest releases. Released in 1997, on their seminal debut album Homework, the opening skit is said to be a reflection on the French government and its stance against rave parties, and 16 years later this instrumental track stands the test of time as a true house classic.

Check out the official video directed by Roman Coppola.


A throwback Thursday special, this 1983 release from American group Cybotron (Juan Atkins and Richard Davis) on Fantasy Records oozes a dark funky synth driven beat. Although generally considered Electro, Cybotron was part of the early evolution of techno music, with Juan Atkins being widely credited as the originator of the genre along with Derrick May and Kevin Saunderson. Cybotron’s unique and eclectic combination of influences such as Italo disco, Midwestern funk and synthesizer pioneers Kraftwerk, combined with a bold experimental aesthetic became the underpinnings of Detroit techno.

RADIO SLAVE | N.I.N.A. (Ame remix)

An ode to Nina? It might be very well the case in this Ame remix of Matt Edwards’ a.k.a Radio Slave’s 2010 release N.I.N.A. on Rekids, home to current controversy queen/Siberian techno maven Nina Kraviz. The remix maintains the Villallobos-influenced Latin infused tribal house feel of the original whilst adding a healthy dose of colourful synths, and has found recent support from the likes of Sven Vath.

RIPPERTON | Let's Hope (BICEP remix)

Pretty much everything BICEP touches seems to turn to gold and this is no exception. Hihats and M1 piano chords keep this one rolling

EVELYN KING | Love Come Down

A juicy, funky, disco bomb from Evelyn "Champagne" King.  

Both BICEP and Tiger and Woods have done more mix-friendly edits but the original gives nice big chunks of the verse to groove to.


FRANCOIS K | Hypnodelic

To start things off, here's a 1995 tune from Francois K. Groovy, acid-like tinges and a great change of pace around 3:30.

Don't stop, keep up!
