Exclusive Featured Releases
Dutch house dynamo Laidback Luke returns with another weapon grade floor-filler on his own Mixmash, with "Natural Disaster." There's not a thing here you wouldn't expect from the man himself. A simple catchy piano riff, huge synths, a big fat bassline, and plenty more to keep a crowd moving any time of the morning, afternoon, or night.

Riva Starr's Snatch! Records seems to be dominating the new school house scene with each new release being stronger than the previous. For his latest, "Riva Goes Festival EP," the man hand selected some of the biggest records of recent times, and gave them the trademark Riva Starr bumpin' house treatment. Already firm favorites of Armand Van Helden, Mark Knight, Bob Sinclar and Brodinski.

"Ice-T" is Prince Club's debut release on Made To Play, just in time for the summer heat wave and is guaranteed to leave you sweating on the dance floor. "Ice-T" layers vintage claps over a classic, hands-in-the-air vocal hook that flows along to coils of synth and bass, while "Kool Aid" is weighed down with a heavier, peak time bass groove.

The breakthrough Scotsman Gum Me (aka Grum) is back with his '80s tinged electro EP, "Burnin / Tonite." "Burnin" starts the release off with cleverly fused bit-crushed elements and chopped vocals with a melody line that could easily be blasted from the tape deck of a '80s Countach on South Beach. "Tonite" keeps true to the theme of the release with electrodisco-panache that would be comfortable calling any dance floor home.

"This generation... rules the nation" is the mantra that underpins Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike's collaborative debut on Size; one that will be surely be heard chanted on dance-floors around the world. Fusing reggae-style vocals with pounding electro house drums and buzzing synths ensures "Generation X" is a high-octane thrill ride from start to finish.

MyBack's latest electro release on Dim Mak likely contains the next track you'll see Steve Aoki crowd diving to at your local hipster warehouse party. "Blomman" starts off the release with a tribally house loop into a huge melodic dubstep breather. "Fewra" keeps the french electro / indie-dance sound relevant and accessible for the less attuned listeners.

Gary Beck's latest single, "Diva" is absolutely full of energetic and exciting prowess. It eases in gently with a smooth bass riff and systematic kick before gradually building up with a wall of vocal delays, exploding into the main body of the track. Heavy on the percussive elements, and full of wicked arrangements, "Diva" is certainly one for the big rooms.

"Morning Caffeine" is the debut Mobilee release by Poker Flat mainstay Martin Landsky, and it's 100% red-hot. Title track "Morning Caffeine" is both a dark and uplifting tune incorporating a slightly twisted loop, which continues to build throughout the track. "Ain't Nobody's" demonstrates Martin's musical diversity with a cut full of warm, dreamy vibes perfectly suited for afterhours.

Tronic provides another summer bomb, "Origin / Freed," from Dosem, a superb two-tracker of high-octane floor rocking possibilities. "Origin" comes with an epic, synth-heavy vibe. Filtered, impeccably programmed drums and a persistently padding groove kick on a big system. "Freed" is more of a heads-down jam but comes complete with wicked steady momentum and mood altering sounds.

Argy serves up old school Balearic house as an ode to early '90s Ibiza. The EP contains 4 huge dancefloor bombs, which are synth riff heavy with chord stabs and lots of b-lines. Also featuring an acid reworking of "N.A.O.E." in a very Future Sound of London vibe, aptly titled "Hacienda Remix."
