Magnus Asberg - Revolution (Viva Recordings)

In a land far away is the mythical and legendary Club Magnus. A place where you leave your troubles at the door, leave your worries behind, and get lost in the music. Heading the movement is Magnus Asberg, who brings his Revolution to Seattle’s Viva Recordings. Magnus has graced the label in the past under his alter ego, C-Soul. We’re sure to be seeing more from him in the future.

Deep and Mysterious vibes abound, and heavy bass pulsates on the title track, with slick laid back keys driving the charge that fuel this deep groover. On the flipside, In the Heat of the Night, takes things up a notch with a bubbly and bouncy bassline percolating alongside crisp rhythms and synth grooves. Come on in, and help start the revolution.

Third Attempt - On Tonight (Beatservice Records)

Third Attempt is Torje Fagertun Spilde, a 20 year old artist and DJ originally from Asker, just outside of Oslo. Now established in Tromsø , Norway, he is one of the young forces in the rising new generation of electronic producers from the birthplace of the Northern Disco Groove.

Third Attempt has a distinct and uplifting flavor, firmly planted in the smoother areas of deep house. His influences range from jazz to ambient, trip hop to classic house. Third Attempt’s Beatservice single, “Shoreline,” accumulated numerous accolades and tens of thousands of plays on various streaming platforms.

This new Beatservice double A-side single opens with “On Tonight” which takes old school sounds and transports them to modern club sets. A funky bass bounce is complemented with squelchy synth lines and an atmospheric, submerged breakdown section. It’s all driven by an insistent rhythm track to keep the floor in motion. “Loading Music” introduces a shuffling breakbeat that anchors jazzy electric piano chords and more analog synth fun. The result is dreamy but propulsive, potentially inspiring introspective dance floor moments. Another winning single from Third Attempt!

Jeff Swiff - Jeff Swiff EP (Vino Recordings)

Vino Recordings celebrates 16 years in operation and its Minneapolis scene with a double A-side release from Jeff Swiff. Jeff’s label with Christian James, Nicewon Recordings, which specializes in prime-time ‘no-coast’ house music sounds, and his seven-year-strong club night House Proud confirm Swiff’s dedication to the genre. His style is focused on the bouncing, ‘phat’ sound of house, evidenced by these two spot-on, driving dance floor stompers with unmistakable Midwest vibes. “Some Type Uh Way” shakes and rolls with delicious, jazzy keys, a crisp, swinging rhythm track, and a dreamy female vocal that pops in and out. “Wun Type Uh Way” presents a deeper and chunkier take, with pulsing, filtered loops and percussive disco vibes suitable for the latest of late nights. Vino delivers the goods once again.
