Download: Eric Sharp "We Own the Nite (Hernene Remix)"

Label: RIS Labs

Earlier this week, LA-based producer and RIS Labs label head Eric Sharp issued his Wait Just Wait EP, a five-track digital EP which includes the remix featured here from Hernene, an artist familiar to the RIS Labs fold. Where Sharp's original "We Own the Nite" is a more dark and driving endeavor, Hernene elects to rework the tune into a bass-loaded club track, one which focuses on a set of classic house piano chords which bounce atop an active, rounded bassline and a floating procession of moody chords. Sharp's Wait Just Wait EP is out now with additional remixes from Give In and Tenova joining the record's two original productions.

Download: Cosmo Lopez "Spirals (My Panda Shall Fly Refix)"

First Listen
Label: Loungin

After appearing as a remixer in our Downloads section last week, Cosmo Lopez finds himself on the opposite side of the arrangement here with prolific London producer My Panda Shall Fly's (pictured above) refix of "Spirals," the title track for Lopez's upcoming EP for the Loungin' label. A member of the Paraguayan trio LPZ, Spirals will serve as Lopez's debut solo release when it lands on November 17, offering a electro-indebted original track alongside remixes from Benjamin Brunn, LPZ members P Lopez & Lion, and My Panda Shall Fly, whose choppy take on "Spirals" adds new low-end and a more energetic rhythmic base to Lopez's production.

Review: Anthony Parasole My Block

Label: Ostgut Ton

A typical Anthony Parasole record has a casual relationship with euphoria. That's not to say that they don't carry a certain euphoric quality, but in the three years that Parasole has put out music, it's become clear that it's the rough, rambling terrain leading up to the moment of release—and not the moment itself—that gives his imposing house/techno hybrids their pulse. On My Block, Parasole's debut EP for Ostgut Ton and his fourth solo release, the layers of his production creep onto each other with a genuine disregard for tension and release. As such, the terrain of My Block's three tracks is relatively flat, trading steep gradients for steady inclines and creating a ruthlessly hypnotic experience in the process. Read more »
