22-year-old techno girl Charlotte de Witte, who goes by the DJ name of Raving George, teamed up with singer/songwriter Max Colombie, of Oscar & The Wolf fame, to deliver a club-ready jam that combines icy-cold minimal beats with melancholy vocals. Straightforward and uncompromising, this beautifully produced new song takes its full flavour as the evening turns deep and dark.
Wrapped in layers of hazy synths and pulsating laptop beats, Colombie’s mesmerising voice speaks of passion, cursed love and intangible dreams. Listen to the track on SoundCloud but be warned, once you have heard it you will want it on repeat for the next few days. The single is out now with an exclusive remix on Pias Belgium.

Blue Hawaii is a recording, DJ and live project from Montreal, Quebec. Created by Alex Agor Cowan and Raphaelle Standell (one third of art rock band BRAIDS), this electronic music duo released their first EP, Blooming Summer, in 2010 and debut album, Untogether, in 2013 both via Arbutus Records. They toured Europe, Asia, and North America numerous times in 2013-14. As a result of the live shows, they became deeply interested in dance music – their performance being known for transitioning into a DJ style set with improvised material including live vocal loops and lines.
In late 2014, the duo released new single “Get Happy” and a mixtape featuring edits of old songs and new song “All of My Heart”. While Standell releases and tours with BRAIDS in 2015, Cowan continues Blue Hawaii by DJing worldwide and producing new material and remixes (including one for Tei Shi).

23-year-old producer Jack Ritchie, better known as Bearcubs, resurfaced last April with the amazingly hypnotic “Wall Papers”, following up on the success of his highly addictive single “Touch”, released in late 2014. This new slice of finely-tuned downtempo electronica is bound to seal his reputation as a producer to be reckoned with.
Bearcubs’ journey from studio to Glastonbury stage is a story of perseverance as much as it is one of inspiration. First featured on BBC Introducing in 2013, his remixes (Gavin James, Just Kiddin) and originals began to appear on Annie Mac and Huw Stephen’s shows on Radio 1 shortly afterwards. The rest is history…

LA-based genre-bending artist Son Lux (Ryan Lott) has been churning out unique, wildly creative compositions since the late noughties. Taken off his 2013 LP Lanterns (Joyful Noise Recordings), “Easy” is a slow jam which starts with a single repeated note and gradually introduces more elements (claps, horns), with a slow build up and simmering tension under its apparently calm surface.
“Easy” comes with a brand new video directed, filmed and edited by David Terry Fine. Watch below!

Up and coming LA-based producer/DJ Tarek Nasr is the man under the moniker of Parcel. He has been producing and performing electronic music with numerous musical projects over the past 8 years and he is now ready to share his first solo EP as Parcel. Always Mine includes 2 original tracks and it is out now on Loco Records.
Both “Beginnings To An End”, which features guest vocals by Monica Khan, and “Always Mine” are amazingly produced and should work wonders on the dance floor of a packed club. Nasr delivers sharp beats laced with vocal cuts that add extra appeal to his already pretty addictive genre-bending productions.
