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.

Brett Johnson - Illusion (Subplot Recordings)

Brett Johnson fills a critical role in house music’s underground history. His work for iconic imprints like Classic, Seasons, and 2020 Vision displayed a playful nature missing from most of the electronic landscape. Coupled with recent projects on Get Physical, Visionquest, and Freerange, Brett’s abilities as an innovative artist are undeniable. Subplot Recordings is happy to welcome Brett to the label with three versions of a dizzy concoction called “Illusion.” Each selection is wholly unique and showcases the versatility of Brett’s brain.

B’s Acid House Dub of “Illusion” builds on underground house foundations, riding cutoffs of dusty 303 devices. This acid excursion dances through rounds of playful interpretation keeping bodies moving and brains quaking. B’s Rave Mix is an unforgettable favorite on the project, with stunted Arp baselines and Brett’s classic percussion design. B’s Lost in Thought Mix tempers dizzying effects and sonic spills. An implied heady house jam, Brett covers impressive sonic territory. Listening too closely might drive one a little looney.

Diz Washington (Classic Music Company) – “Just what the doctor ordered!”
Severino (HorseMeatDisco) – “Oh yes, bring it!”
Hector Moralez (Fries & Bridges) – “Nice acid!”
Anthony Mansfield (Roam Recordings) – “Gimme dat Aceeeeed.”
Al Bradley (3am Recordings) – “Class as usual from Brett. The super spaced out ‘Lost in Thought’ mix is the pick for me, wicked.”
Jimmy Le Mac (Loophole Recordings) - “This is a banger.”
Rees Urban (5 Magazine) – “Love the acid mix, killer.”
Snooba (Radio Panik) – “Infectious Energy.”
Robot84 / Scott Ferguson (Paper Recordings) – “Oh yes. Banging Acid house, love it.”
Simon Kirk (Stag Beetle Radio Show) – “Oh yes. This is the business. 3 storming tracks with the “rave mix” being my fave. 10/10”

Pat Lok & Party Pupils - From The Back feat. Dances With White Girls (Kitsune Musique)

Vancouver’s gifted producer Pat Lok teams up with future-funk duo Party Pupils (MAX + RyanEXO) on “From The Back” (feat. Dances With White Girls): an explosive banger and danceable anthem featured on this month’s co-headline tour.

Vancouver’s Pat Lok has become a staple in the playlists of tastemakers and clubs worldwide — as the sole Canadian artist on legendary French label Kitsuné Musique and the first act signed to Pete Tong’s new PTSongs. With a debut album already reaching over 4M streams across platforms and official remixes for Galantis or SG Lewis, this talented producer is ready to announce his upcoming EP to be released on Kitsuné Musique.

Party Pupils formed when MAX following a hot string of hits got together with RyanEXOE in 2016 to form Party Pupils as a party-starting, future-funk dance duo.

Says Pat: “I had been following PP on Twitter and saw they were talking about an A-Ha remix, so I reached out and sent them some piano ideas for it and that was how we connected.” The adventure continued backstage, at the Electric Forest festival in Michigan, where both Pat Lok and Party Pupils were performing. That’s where it hit it off. “They're based in LA so I went into the studio with Ryan one day and started playing out these chords, he put down some drums and very quickly we had a club jam! It very much captures the vibe and energy of our projects together.”

All this energy is embodied in this exclusive collaboration: “From the Back” (feat. Dances With White Girls). “I’ve been playing the demos out in in Asia and the US and the response has been great,” says Pat. “Getting Dances on the final version was the cherry on top."

This funky banger will definitely be the danceable anthem of their co-headline tour, crossing the United States this month.

Blueshift (Nurvous Records) – “This is a big one!”
Severino (HorseMeatDisco) – “Yes! Groovy and fun.”
Andrew Emil (Four Play Music) – “Digging the instrumental here.”
DJ Rocca (Supersonic Lovers) – “UK Garage revival. GREAT!”
Vincent Kwok (Transport Recordings) – “Funky as hell!”
Salah Sadeq (The Crate Radioshow) – “Nice and funky.”
DJ Firefly (Couch Dancing on WRCT 88.3 FM) – “So catchy and funky. Love it.”
Kyka (Housetrap Podcast / SSRadio) – “Good vibes! Full support.”
Jon Wesley (Music Goes On Radio Show) – “Love it. Haven’t heard Dance for a while. Sounds great.”
Mark Mac (The Sounds Collective) – “Solid release guys. Top beats for the floor.”

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.

Dutchican Soul (Strictly Rhythm) – “What a groove! Love this vibe.”
Tyree Cooper (Chicago Vinyl Records) – “I’m lovin’ it! I will surely play this until the needle jumps across my Serato vinyl.”
Gene Hunt (Rush Hour) – “I dig this a lot.”
Booker T. (Kings Of Soul) – “Big tune! Will support.”
KJ (Integrity Recordings) – “Really feeling the jazz vibe.”
Mike Solus (Housemasters Radio) – “Both cuts are dope. Supporting.”
Bart (Soulfulbros) (Soul District Radio Show) – “Jazzy and swingy like we love.”
Curtiss Logan (Jersey Soul / Cyberjamz Radio) – “Nice release. I like Some Type Uh Way.”
Ken Liu (Broad Street Bait & Tackle) – “Excellent! Love these vibes, thanks. Psyched to play these.”
Lee Jones / Country Gents (Buslife) – “Both of these tracks are superb. The Wun suits me best and will definitely get used on the air and at gigs.”
