We’ve been slacking pretty hard lately, but I hope you ate your wheaties this morning because in preparation for Miami Music Week/Ultra we’ve got a megapost coming at you today that’s literally so dumb it’s clinically retarded. It is Miami after all right? I think that means we’re kind of obligated to start with the biggest, most off the wall stuff.
TECHNOOOOOOOO. This newest release on Brodinski’s Bromance imprint is insanely fat. Expect to hear this one devastating dancefloors inside the tents during some of the techier sets at Ultra this year. Needless to say, Pipes is a dude who you should pay attention to from now on.

If you guys didn’t eat your wheaties this morning, maybe you had some Cocaine and Ketamine instead? I hear either one counts as nourishment in Miami… In all seriousness (listen to the song and you’ll understand), I’m excited to introduce you to the anthem for every basement in Miami this year. The long awaited “You and I” (better known as “Cocaine and Ketamine”) by Fur Coat is out now on crosstown rebels.

Light Year‘s newest release shows them going in a much more underground, deep house direction, and frankly it was a beautiful decision. I could eat this bassline for days. Sexy, 5AM vibes.

This song is THE jam. Turn your speakers to full blast and listen to the little break after 1:30 to understand what I’m talking about. The only possible way this song could be cooler was if she was actually saying “Shots are on the house”… free shots are nice
French Fries with some bass filled heat from dirtybird. Sidebar, I’m still waiting for patrick to learn how to do the Vogue like he says he’s gonna. Will he pull it off in Miami? Tune in this time next week to find out.

I was waiting a long time for this remix EP to come out on the LA deep house label Culprit, and, well, it’s finally out… AND IT’S AWESOME. Konrad Black puts in a supreme deep house cut here alongside a slew of other megafresh remixes. Make sure you check the whole thing out on Beatport.
After the After-Afterparty
Some tracks for those late nights/surreal mornings when youre just trying to recuperate and relax. What better thing for that than some spacious amazing progressive house? This throwback by Inpetto always hits the spot.

Super chill remix by the legendary discomaster Greg Wilson that I randomly came across on a compilation by a label called Bear Funk Records. I definitely recommend checking out their “Hibernation” compilation series (which this track came off of), its some disco fuego.
Everything In Between
When Ed Banger’s SebastiAn puts out a new track or remix, for me it’s always a question of which SebastiAn is going to show up. Good SebastiAn (like Embody), or bad painfully-overdistorted SebastiAn (like on pretty much his entire album). Luckily here we have a perfect example of good SebastiAn. A friend of mine best summed it up to me recently when he said “it’s almost like this is what Justice was trying to do on their most recent album…and failed miserably at”. Either way, this song rocks.

One of my first memories of falling in love with a piece of music was on a road trip at summer camp when I was maybe 12 or 13, and the older counselers who were driving us played the same Talking Heads CD in the van over and over, and in particular the song “This Must Be The Place” and by a couple hours in everyone was belting all the words to the song at the top of their lungs. That little antidote is only relevant cause that awesome song gets an awesome remix effect here, with Anna Lunoe turning it into a nice little bit of sun splashed house.
And last but not least, some Soulwax is always the basis of a healthy diet. (this is kind of just a testament to me being crazy excited to see 2manydjs again at Ultra this year…you should be too)
