Download: Vhyce "Long Way"

First Listen
Label: Overcooked

"Long Way" starts out unassuming enough—a dusty hat skips between a simple kick-and-clap pattern—but once the tune's chords begin to creep in, it's clear there is much more on the way. Crafted by Belgian producer Vhyce for Parisian label Overcooked's upcoming All You Can Eat Vol. 2 compilation, the track aims straight at the dancefloor with its series of weighted chords and sweeping pads. Spanning over six minutes, "Long Way" develops in steps, gradually building the full-bodied track's potency. Featured here, Vhyce's contribution to All You Can Eat Vol. 2 will be joined by 10 other disparate electronic productions from fellow budding artists when the comp sees its official release on August 25. In the meantime, the full collection is streaming after the jump.  Read more »

Download: Midnight Magic "Calling Out (Bell Towers Remix)"

After delivering a rework of its own for our Downloads section back in June, NYC outfit Midnight Magic (pictured above) are now on the receiving end of this remix treatment from London producer Bell Towers. Included as part of the recent Midnight Creepers Remixes 12" (which features additional refixes from Session Victim, Hugh Mane, and Suzanne Kraft & Secret Circuit, working together as Blase), Bell Towers' take on "Calling Out" strips the song down to more efficient form, placing spurts of the original track's vocals between cyclical synth sequences that are restlessly tweaked across the course of the seven-minute production. The Midnight Creepers Remixes 12" is out now via Permanent Vacation.

Download: Warsnare "Children with Feet of Giants (Mass)"

First Listen
Label: Seclusiasis

A barrage of rattling percussion and sharply cut samples line "Children with Feet of Giants (Mass)," the lead single from London producer Warsnare's upcoming Endgame mini-LP for Seclusiasis. Filling every inch of his production with sonic details, the track is a rush of audio, one which folds gasps of candy-coated R&B, red-lined bass stabs, and an innumerable number of disparate rhythmic pulses into its five-plus-minute run. "Children with Feet of Giants (Mass)" and a handful Warsnare's other sneaky bass permutations will be available in vinyl and digital format when his Endgame mini-LP drop in mid-September.
