The 2009 heartbreak tune, “Don’t Call” by Canadian trio Desire has been turned into one of the summers hottest dance tracks by electronic producer Guy Gerber. The reimagined single provides an exciting new beat by Guy with the same catchy lyrics we know and love from Desire. The single does a full 360, giving us an uplifting dance-worthy tune for fans to enjoy all summer long. This might not be the first time you have heard this track as it received an incredible reaction when he dropped it in his only live-stream from his home in Rio last month and has also been a popular hit in many of Guy Gerber’s live performances.
Guy Gerber has been working from his home in Rio on a lot of new material for his fans and if it is anything like this rework we can’t wait.

Both Will Clarke and BOT are rising stars in the house music
scene. Clarke is well established with the DIRTYBIRD brand, and BOT continues to
slay in the underground. These artists collaborated back in 2017 for a heady
track, “Techno (not techno),” and are back again with a song that comes as a
highly sought after ID by fans and DJs alike. Out now on DIRTYBIRD label,
“Feeling Good” is sure to detonate the dance floors.
“Feeling Good” begins with acid lines and trippy vocals, repeating, “you feeling good?” Clarke and BOT then strip away everything but the unrelenting high hat and slowly but surely, like Jaws creeping up underneath his prey, the bubbling synths lead into the drop to reveal the rest of the meaty song. Tiger Stripes steps in for a remix edition of the track, and unlike the techno-leaning original, his rendition has a more futuristic vibe. Both versions are hard to resist and stay in your head long after the beat stops.

UK-based brother-duo ICARUS – which consists of Tom & Ian Griffiths – have today released a new EP: This Must Be The Place. Proceeded by two singles – Echoes & Man Of The Land feat. Real Lies – the full 4-track EP is out today in full on FFRR. ICARUS shared some words about the new EP:
“We’ve got the clearest vision that we’ve ever had of the core ICARUS sound, but those tracks show that we’ll always experiment with how far we’ll push it.”
ICARUS have been on a tear the past year. They released another EP earlier in 2018, In The Dark EP, which caught the attention of Australian powerhouse RÜFÜS DU SOL, who invited the Griffiths brothers to open for them on their massive SOLACE tour, throughout the latter months of 2018. This tour saw ICARUS play their first ever live show, something they plan on doing much more of in 2019. They also released a BBC Essential Mix in June.
Gettoblaster stepped on the scene in 2014 and has been a force in producing house music ever since. This duo, hailing from Chicago and Detroit, has a distinct style while staying deeply rooted in preserving house and techno music. DJ Funk is no stranger to successful production, either, pioneering the ghetto-house scene since the 1990s and making a name for himself early in his career around the midwest.
The artists’ most recent release on DIRTYBIRD Records stays true to a Gettoblaster sound: it’s not for the faint of heart. The track, titled “Get Dat,” features crisp percussions and a robust bass-line. The song is provocative, and depending on where your mind is, you wouldn’t expect what “dat” is that we’re actually getting. Just as original house music calls for, the song’s dirty beat is relentlessly unapologetic and sexual in nature. The repetitive words are a house music staple, and the track is a DIRTYBIRD banger. The dance floor will be shaking and booties will be percolating, so crank dat “Get Dat,” fam.
The Family & Friends series from Desert Hearts Records is an ode to what the Desert Hearts crew does best: house, techno, deep house, and tech-house. Riddled with label stalwarts old and new, this collection of songs samples exactly what you’d hear at a Desert Hearts party.
The third installment of the Family & Friends series is comprised of 19 tracks that represent every shade of Desert Hearts. With artists Andrea Henneberg, Sacha Robotti, Cut Snake, NiQW, Sydney Blu, Rich Pinder, and many more, there is no shortage of fresh tracks on the collection.
The opener is a song from Andrea Henneberg, aptly titled “Desert Hearts.” It begins with a robotic voice repeating, “Desert Hearts,” which then proclaims, “Let’s rock that shit.” It’s a fun start to this third volume and sets the listener up for the rest of the collection, in which, of course, the artists are rocking that shit. Crank the volume and enjoy.
Dutch DJ/producer Chuckie has teamed up with fellow Caribbean artist Steve Andreas for another crowd-pleasing single, ‘Latino,’ an epic fusion of latin-styled moombhaton and big room house. The Aruba-based pair take the track to a new level adding hip hop drums to a latin-styled flute melody. Masterfully blending styles and genres, Chuckie’s ambition and innovative mixing methods have earned him a reputation in both the Dutch and international dance communities. Along with Steve Andreas’ touch of urban style and Caribbean rhythm and groove, ‘Latino’ is a refreshingly exotic track that’ll soon be heard on every dancefloor and has already seen support from DJ’s like Hardwell, Laidback Luke, W&W, Kryder, and David Guetta to name a few. Blast ‘Latino’ through your speakers because a hot summer deserves a hot blooded track.
Disciples have released a brand new single, ‘Atheist’, via Warner Bros. Music. ‘Atheist’ is the third song released thus far this year from the London-based trio, following up ’48HRS’ and ‘On My Mind’.
‘Atheist’ revolves around a catchy vocal loop and singing from Disciples’ very own Nathan Duvall. The minimalist deep house beat gradually works in various sonic elements before reaching a climax around the 3-minute mark, marking another hypnotic release from the immensely talented hit-making trio.
Disciples landed a worldwide hit with Calvin Harris in 2012 with their collaboration, ‘How Deep is Your Love’. The song made it to #2 on the UK singles chart and was a top-10 record in 22 other countries, quite the achievement for a production trio that was firmly in the underground prior to their collaboration with Harris.
The upcoming summer should be a busy one for Disciples, who have a weekly residency in Ibiza at Amnesia on top of festival appearances at Snowbombing, Hideout Croatia, Sundown, and Belgian mega-festival, Tomorrowland.
I love it when my friends make dope music. I don’t even remember what year I met Morgan. We were on the streets of San Francisco after a show at Vessel and she was looking for a place to buy cigs with her friend. That area of downtown isn’t the best for two young ladies to be walking around so of course I had to step in and escort them to a 711 where we got to talking about music and life and travel and then that was it. They were gone and I didn’t think I’d hear from them again.
Luckily we have the internet and somehow I found Morgan on Facebook and we have loosely stayed in touch ever since. Since then, Morgan has become quite the producer and just the other day she released her very first ep entitled “The Queens” on Sunday Money Music. Morgan also manages the label and I am just blown away by the quality of these tracks. I knew she would be great at whatever she ended up doing after that first meeting but the vibes she is creating now with her music fit perfectly with that after hours / underground world that I have come to love and appreciate so much throughout my career in the music industry.
Morgan I am so proud of you and even though we haven’t talked in a while, I have always cherished that connection we made and I look forward to watching you grow with your music. Keep it up babe!
Just playing catchup here. I couldn’t post 12 without throwing up some of the stuff I found over the last month and a half or so. I’m not going to link everything up but you should be able to track most of the artists I’ve featured just through soundcloud.
