This Tuesday comes bearing gifts with sticky fingers and midnight crushes.
Starting off with Synapson's rendition of Walter Sobcek's Midnight Crush and with its guitar licks and handclaps. The bass has the personality of a Fred Falke track and it's topped by the vocals of Mereki, which you might remember from Goldroom's Only You Can Show Me fame or Keljet's Run This World.
Of all the songs I'm posting today this Lane 8 remix of Above & Beyond's Sticky Fingers is the one I'm bugging out to. Alex Vargas' hook "Get your sticky fingers out of my head" is the stickiest hook I've heard in deep house realm in a long time. It's sexy, romantically careless and just awesome. Then again, what did you expect when you put Above & Beyond and Lane 8 in the same sentence? Gold.
NY Gryffin has new material, this time a throwback to Lloyd's Get It Shawty. A mean bass, sped up vocals and an overall dance floor killer.
David Bucka is in love. And to show his affection to his girlfriend he crafter How Much I Love You. This Deep House beauty is really nice. I don't know if the vocals are sampled or are his and he pitched them down but I'm feeling this song.
A friend told me today that even when I go out on binges posting things that are eclectic and varied in the selections, he always finds at least one tropical house track in most posts. So here's one by Sterkøl, a producer we supported a week ago with his original Drøm. In this one he channels Bakermat and a bit of Klingande by using Obama's speech a-la Vicetone but in a tropical setting.
Like every time I post a BANKS song, I refrain myself from saying my thoughts because, well, let's face it -- I'm biased. I'll point out that this one was produced by Grammy-winner Al Shuk, the dude behind Jay-Z's Empire State Of Mind I & II and a shitload of other sick #1 tracks. I'll also point out the unbiased fact that BANKS keeps pairing herself with the perfect matches for her lyrics and vocal sound.
We've been supporting UK's Samuel since he started out not long ago. He now gives Passenger's Circles a tropical spin with birds, an acoustic melodious touch and all the usual suspects of a Kygo song -- I don't know why we all keep referring to tropical nu disco / house songs with Kygo. It's not fair and he wasn't the first one. He was the first one to hit it big with the genre though.
I'll be honest, I wasn't the biggest fan of the original and most remixes of My Body. And I fucking adore the guys behind The Knocks, nothing personal. But this Bit Catchy remix just changed it all for me. With it's piano chords and super chopped vocals he might have just made my favorite version of this song. Killer Nu Disco remix with some 80's piano in the background.
La Mélomane pointed me to this tune by UK's Endor where he teamed up with his friend Diverse for a Summer Deep House slated to be played many times in the upcoming Summer of '14.
And I'm closing with an original by a guest vocalist in two of our favorite dance songs of the last 12 months: Clean Bandit's Rather Be and Route 94's My Love. Right Here was produced by Gorgon City, one of the hottest producers of 2014 so far.
