The June Sampler is in and features some hot house from Defected, DFTD, Soulfuric & Deepvisionz.
Darius Syrossian – Mustang 74
Darius Syrossian makes his DFTD debut with storming two-track delivery ‘Tivoli’s Groove’, after releasing acclaimed EP ‘Come On Come On’ on sister label Defected in 2019. An artist who lives and breathes dance music, Darius’ latest delivery showcases his unwavering devotion to producing quality dance cuts that defy genre constraints. The bumping ‘Mustang 74’ follows, as a full throttle bassline, percussive stabs and warm synths work in total harmony. An artist whose roots lie firmly in the principles of house and techno, Darius’ musical philosophy shines through on this stellar delivery.
Kings Of Tomorrow – WHITE FLAG
Debuting the first single from his forthcoming album ‘Trouble II – Someplace In The Middle’, Sandy Rivera dons his Kings Of Tomorrow alias to revisit the unique brand of soulful house he’s best known for. ‘WHITE FLAG’, featuring singer/songwriter Alex Mills whose voice is heard on dancefloor essentials from Hot Since 82, Danny Howard and Sonny Fodera, delivers heartfelt vocals narrating the familiar tales of heartbreak. Sublimely backdropped by Sandy’s production, melodic keys, elegant percussion and a grooving house beat give ‘WHITE FLAG‘ an irresistible appeal destined for memorable moments on the dancefloor. This is Kings Of Tomorrow at his finest.
Gettoblaster featuring Servante – This Beat
Unstoppable duo Gettoblaster deliver their DFTD debut with ‘This Beat’. Keeping the underground sound burning, Gettoblaster embrace a classic house sound while incorporating a contemporary twist. 2019 was a standout year for the duo, with an array of successful releases including ‘Bounce Yo Body’, which featured on Defected’s ‘Most Rated 2020’ compilation. This year continues to see the pair evolve, releasing an EP on Patrick Topping‘s imprint Trick and continuing to refine their club-ready sound. ‘This Beat’ featuring Servante is no exception to their forward-thinking catalogue, sure to transport your mind to the dancefloor with its industrial synths, bold hats and hypnotising vocal. It’s a close-your-eyes-and-feel-the-music track ready to dominate some serious sound systems.
Yass featuring Leslie O’Smith – Faith
Parisian producer, DJ and remixer Yass makes his Soulfuric Recordings debut with ‘Faith’, an uplifting, dancefloor-ready cut. A powerful vocal provided by collaborator Leslie O’Smith supplies the track with a heavy dose of soul, while hypnotic keys, high-energy percussion and a grooving bassline give the record its dancefloor-focussed sound. Offering the perfect antidote to testing times, the boundless, joyful energy of ‘Faith‘ is exactly what the world needs.
