This edition of mixtape includes all those tracks that have ruled our hearts or at least mine over the last one year. I hope you would like this edition as it includes sounds from different sub-genre within house music.

India, EDM and Year 2013!!!

The year 2013 has seen lot of ups and downs when it comes to electronic music scene in India.  Some of them were because of “Purely Business” reasons and others’ “Ego” however, amidst all this, we could see the general awareness and love for EDM growing in India.  It is no longer restricted to southern cities of the country where it all started back in late 90’s.  Today, artists like Above&Beyond, Swedish House Mafia, Axwell, Tiesto, Armin Van Burren…have become household names of young India.

The year started off with rescheduled tour of Swedish House Mafia in Mumbai and a surprise edition of Bangalore. And throughout the year, we saw big names of electronic music flying down to India.  Armin, Alesso, Kaskade, Zedd, Mat Zo, Guy J, Jody Wisternoff, Hardwell, Steve Aoki, Porter Robinson, Dash Berlin, Nervo, Rank1, Paul Van Dyke, Fedde Le Grande, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, Seven Lions, recently concluded an amazing tour by Above&Beyond and the list is never ending and they are coming back again.

We raved on every opportunity given to us.  It is always heartwarming to see smiling faces everywhere whether it’s a club or an arena, there is so much love and respect for each of these artists.  It is because of events like this that has brought us together to celebrate life and music like a family.

Here we would like to thank every artist management company who made this possible; Submerge, sLick, Replug Social and Unmute Agency are some of them to name the few.

Fast forward to the year end and it’s December again and Goa has has been transformed into one big hub for electronic music lovers.  Yes, we are talking about Sunburn and a new born baby, Supersonic.  If you look at the line up for these two events, you will know why we said Goa will be buzzing.  Both are scheduled to last for almost a week, you are going to see Goa in a completely different colour, this time around.

We would like to wish Nikhil Chinapa and his crew all the best for the first ever, Vh1SuperSonic.  Nikhil has done this before and we know he can do it this time as well. We hope 2014 will give us more opportunities to celebrate.

See you on the sands of Goa!!!

Peace. Love. Unity. Respect.

This 17 something guy has swept the entire EDM floor with surprise. A true rising start of 2013. He is all over the freakin’ genres but his deep/progressive sounds are amazing and interesting enough to grab your attention. It is surprising to see the understanding of such fine tunes/beats at such an early age.

His work has been supported and appreciated by all the big names of EDM world including Above & Beyond, Solarstone, Jaytech, Stoneface & Terminal, Richard Durand, Ilan Bluestone, Fehrplay just to name a few.  He rose to fame after his appearance on Above & Beyond’s weekly radio show, Group Therapy, as the youngest guest mixer.  But one could only see his true taste in music, when he was on the mix duties for Anjunabeats’s Worldwide show.  His releases have been signed with labels such as Anjunabeats, Armada Music, Silk Music and Enhanced Music.

He essentially considers himself as a producer instead of Dj, which is a good thing considering that he has just started off however, we can see him getting more involved in Djing as it is equally important to touch base every now and then. It kind of helps you to understand the crowds interest and vibe and of course, best platform to test ones tunes. If his tweets are to be believed Matt is working on hell lot of projects, so it would be safe to assume that 2014 is going to be full of surprises for all the fans (we are definitely included) and music lovers.

We recommend that you all go through his soundcloud page, for us, it is the best place to get the taste of his likes in music.

Artist Of The Month!!! – Dec’13

Image Source: Unknown

Stage Name: Hot Since 82
Real Name: Daley Padley
Location: Worldwide
Based: Leeds, UK.
Twitter Facebook Soundcloud | Beatport

He is one of the finest and hottest house music producers around that we have come across in last few months.  He has been named “Breakthrough Djs Of The Year 2013″ by DjMag.  A Leeds based dj/producer has not just risen from underground circuit but blown our mind off.

We are not going to dig in the distant past therefore, let’s talk about present.  He has just released his debut album called “Little Black Book” on Moda Black lable on 22nd October.  His music is fresh and reminds you of good old days of house and yet keeping it up to date.  It’s deep, dark and bit techno.  The complete album is full of pure bliss sounds.  Something that one must have in his/her collection.  His tour dates can be found on his facebook page.

In a recent interview given to DjMag, he said (about his music) that he is not trying to make deep house sounds, it’s always deep-ish and more importantly producing stuff that he really likes.

Here is the tracklist of the much talked about album of the year, Little Black Book:
1. Hot Since 82: Shadows (feat. Alex Mills)
2. Hot Since 82: Planes & Trains
3. Hot Since 82: Chords
4. Rudimental: Right Here (Hot Since 82 Remix)
5. Green Velvet: Bigger Than Prince (Hot Since 82 Remix)
6. Hot Since 82: Hot’s Groove
7. Shadow Child: So High (Hot Since 82 Remix)
8. Hot Since 82: Hurt You (Lee Curtiss Remix)
9. Hot Since 82: Insane I Know
10. Hot Since 82: Transitions
11. Hot Since 82: Things You Do To Me (feat. Thomas Gandey)
12. Hot Since 82: Cry Mumbai
13. Hot Since 82 vs. Joe T Vannelli: The End

We liked all the tracks but have couple of them on loops for sometime now, for example, Shadows (amazingly deep and dark), Rudimental’s Right Here (tripy one, nice club sound), Hurt You (it’s all about drum and bass) and finally, The End (it has bit gothic and contemporary feel to it with nice beats).

We hope to see him in India soon…
