New Metronomy needs no introduction, I’m only sad that we have to wait until March 2014 for the new album Love Letters. SUCH a sexy voice.
Annie Mac is right: this track in a club would blow your mind. I look forward to it.
We attended the delightful ADE last weekend in Amsterdam, arriving just in time for the Mobilee party at Dhoem Dhaam warehouse, in the middle of a plot of car showroom-type businesses just north of Central. We walked into a sweaty, smiley rave in full swing; they definitely could have included more speakers other than the two at the front for a bit of surround sound, but it was a lot of fun and such a great crowd. Anja Schneider rocked the house, she lifted the crowd into a bit of a frenzy, looked like she was LOVING it, and was sweet and humble when we congratulated her afterwards.
All the sets from the party are live on Be@TV here.
Afterwards we walked through the lovely sunrise to Melkweg for Breakfast Club, where we walked in to Prosumer playing Doctor Dru’s The Voice of Dru. The disco vibe continued well into the day and, combined with a lot of glittery purple lights and the beautiful breakfast buffet laid out for free, created this magical impression of civilised clubbing and I’ve been on a Prosumer buzz ever since.
On that note, his October Boiler Room set is well worth a watch and a listen, and you can see exactly what I mean.
Bristol’s finest Luke Turner aka Lukas has delivered a belter in his latest mixtape. This mix is one of those beautiful hybrids of disco, electronica, funk and house; heavy on the cowbell, just the right dubby basslines, a hint of vocal when it’s needed. The label selection on the tracklist says it all; Jackathon Jams, Hypercolour, Rekids, Hot Creations and of course Lukas’s own Futureboogie. It’s one of those where the volume sneaks up and up until by the end of it you’re all dancing around the stereo. I mean, just take a listen to Busta Rhymes on Freaks + Cajmere, naaaaaaasty! The combination of Lukas and my other Futureboogie faves Waifs & Strays on Gimme Luv is explosive, the whole EP is amazing, and well worth your pennies on release to Beatport at the end of the month.
Sorry to pilfer it from Discobelle, but it’s just too good not to share.

One of my favourite DJs at one of my favourite clubs, Circoloco have been kind enough to share a set from Richy Ahmed at DC10. Despite having been in the ex-airport hangar since 1999, it’s one of the few clubs on the island that still has this naughty feel to it, like you’re going to an unsanctioned rave. Which is kind of true, being as the authorities are frequently threatening closure, following through in 2008 and still keeping this a very real cloud on an otherwise beautiful horizon.
Richy, the naughty boy of Hot Creations, fits the bill perfectly.
Out on Parlophone 23 September.
Miguel Puente‘s 2011 Adults Only podcast for Proton Radio was where our love for him began, and since then he’s graced the decks of pretty much every country imaginable, racking up releases on Akbal, Off Recordings, Lower East, and his Digital Delight imprint with friend and DJ-partner Sishi Rosch. So it’s only fitting that his 2013 version is today’s medicine for the first day back to work after Ibiza.
Sexy as ever, wrap your ears around this:
