Inventive and catchy synth pop bliss off of Tiga’s Turbo Records. This song feels like a cooler version of what the 80’s should have been like. I recommend listening from the start and letting it just sort of grab you, if you jump ahead all the subtleties that really make the track what it is will end up getting totally lost on ya.

It’s friday, so no one should feel guilty about grabbing these next two big room bombs by Archie V and Fareoh. Both are huge and reminiscent of Avicii when he’s on top of his game, and I wouldn’t be surprised to see both of these dudes blow up in this next year.

Ahhh, good old Boys Noize & Erol Alkan. The two of them are responsible for some of the catchiest and most genre-defining electro cuts from the past decade. Roland Rat shows them again channeling that undeniable talent for crafting pure, fierce electronic energy. The B Side, Brain Storm is equally crazy. Both of the tracks on this EP are 100% Analog, which is pretty cool. Purchase Here.
1985. Chicago. This classic cut used to be one of Frankie Knuckles’ favorite records to play out. I’m addicted to that main synth line.
FUTURE TECHNO. This next track is completely mental, and while I wish that I invented the phrase ‘Future Techno’ because it’s fucking awesome, this song actually comes off of a really good Bad Life compilation called Future Techno. There are a bunch of other really awesome tracks on it, including huge ones by NT89 and Attaque, so definitely head over to beatport and check it out.

More techno here with Maetrik aka Maceo Plex getting stright diabolical on this one…

Todd Terje wants you to imagine what The Bangles would be like if they recorded their classic ‘Walk Like An Egyptian’ on the island of Ibiza in the 70s instead of some studio in america in the 80s. Find out below. Good vibes and an all around fun time. I love Todd Terje.
Do I really need to explain a track by a group called Beat Pharmacy? Yes, it’s every bit as amazing as their name would imply.
