Press Play: Matias Aguayo, Brenmar, Brackles, DJ Haus, and More
Press Play's bounty runneth over this Friday. We've stuffed this post to the brim with heaps of streaming audio, free downloads, exclusive premieres, and intriguing videos from a wide array of DJs and producers. We've got sights and sounds from the likes of Matias Aguayo, CFCF, Brenmar, Ital, Matthewdavid, MikeQ, Young Echo, Brackles, DJ Haus, XXYYXX, and Glimpse, among plenty of others. The possibilities go on and on, after the jump.
Before his long-awaited third LP, The Visitor, drops via Cómeme on June 24, Matias Aguayo has shared another one of its lively dance cuts, the dark and clattering "Levantate Diegors."
This club-ready remix of "If You Love Me" by '90s outfit Brownstone arrives from Brooklyn R&B obsessive Brenmar and his UK counterpart Murlo.
After it was reworked by iconic DJ/producer MK, Katy B's "What Love is Made Of" single gets a forward-thinking UK garage treatment from Rinse affiliate Brackles.
Unknown to the Unknown label boss DJ Haus asked us if we wanted to premiere his upcoming Thug Houz Anthems Vol. 1 mixtape before it drops next week, and seeing as how he's a pretty great DJ, producer, and all-around prolific guy, we decided it'd be a good idea for us to do just that.
Lifted from a forthcoming remix EP on the way via West Coast label Ecstasy, New Jersey vogue-house impresario MikeQ just dropped this hiccuping dancefloor remix of "Nite Birds" by Sheffield's Poisonous Relationship.
Here, the dance-pop nostalgists of Shine 2009 have their "Eurozone" single for Cascine remixed by shapeshifting Canadian artist CFCF.
Brooklyn producer Ital shares "Ice Drift (Stalker Mix)," one of his latest experimental house cuts lifted from a recently released, three-track 12" for the Workshop label.
Today, we're premiering the three-track EP for Alex Niggeman's drum-heavy "Just a Little" single, which includes remixes from Glimpse and Poker Flat label boss Steve Bug.
After having to push back the release of its debut LP, Nexus, yet again, Bristol collective Young Echo shared a stream of "Slow Jam," a spacious and beat-driven cut with a twisting lyrical turn.
LA duo Soft Metals shares the second synth-addled single from its upcoming Lenses LP for Captured Tracks, "In the Air."
Check out this clip of Sun Araw and M. Geddes Gengras (a.k.a. Duppy Gun) working with Fyah Flames in Spanish Town, Jamaica on "What Would You Say About Me," a tune which features production from DJ High Waistline (a.k.a. Matthewdavid).
The love child of LCD Soundsystem's Pat Mahoney and Jee Day, Museum of Love unveiled its first single for DFA this week, the appropriately psyched-out and dancefloor-friendly "Down South."
Up-and-coming producer XXYYXX announces an as-yet-untitled new album for Relief in Abstract by offering the tenderly textured "Pay Attention" to stream and download for free.
And lastly, here's a strange video posted by Hyperdub, in which the UK label ever so cryptically asks "Do You Know Jessy Lanza?"
