Traxxx Romay - Kitty Kats & Big Faces (KniteWerk



Traxxx Romay just released a new EP entitled "Kitty Kats & Big Faces" via KnightWerk Recs with six original tracks and seven remixes from some amazing artists! Everything on this EP is great to say the least; each track has a strong producer accompanied by Traxxx Romay's edgy vocals. Definitely go give the entire EP a listen, you will not be disappointed!

Our favorite track from the entire release is DJ Problem's remix of "H.B.I.C." This track immediately grabs your attention and gets straight to the point from there! Problem seamlessly blends a small cut of Traxxx's sexual vocals over a savage booty bounce track with that signature Brick Bandits sound! Do not sleep on DJ Problem!!

If you like the release, go buy it from the KnightWerk Recs. Bandcamp!

Peace,

JUSTIN FAUST – DISCO CUTS EP – VOL. II




JUSTIN FAUST – DISCO CUTS EP – VOL. II

I’ve always appreciated the production value of Justin Faust. He knows how to put together a tasteful vibe of any genre – from any of his remixes to his growing library of originals – this Disco release on Nurvous Records sets an even higher precedence for things to come!

Casino Royale (Original Mix) opens the dance floor with a game show like trumpet driven fanfare. A sexy throwback to velvet furniture and corduroy everything. The groove would fit perfectly on the Vegas Strip as Danny Ocean and his 11 thieves rip off their next hit.

Bird Of Paradise (Original Mix) pushes the classy lounge textures even further. This track keeps a steady fretless bassline that is sure to get the room moving when it comes through the subs. Although it lacks any steel drum, the track has an exotic vacation feel to it. Again, very tasteful and upscale – but accessible.

Cuba (Original Mix) is the final track on this EP. It reminds me of the new Todd Terje releases – funky and clean. The mix would fit seamlessly in a street festival or deep down in a disco. This tune has a bit more oomph to the low end of it, so I can see this picking up commercially a bit more.

All in all – a great notch in the belt of Justin Faust. I can always appreciate a soulful release like this, swimming along in a world of brostep and TRVP. Looking forward to seeing how everyone else loves this EP, too.

Cheers!

Dirty Chocolate - 93 EP

Dirty Chocolate  - 93 

Dirty Chocolate has been working hard with the Moving Castle Collective to pump out some fresh new tunes. The latest release from Dirty Chocolate is his "93" EP and it's an instant favorite. A graphic designer with an act for evoking his artistic mind into his music, yet always keeping it fresh. Tracks like "Crystal Cavern" evoke deep and profound emotion, while "Emoji Girl' has this fresh style of confidence presented through the music. Memory Cards is a favorite here at the TILTmag HQ. Up beat and definitely instantly brings the vibe up of the whole EP. Hoping to hear this one at the club for sure! Support by commenting on his tracks or adding him via the links below.

LUPE FIASCO X JILL SCOTT – DAY DREAMIN (ANGELZ EDIT)





ANGELZ from Quebec has been garnering support from Destruco, Amine Edge & Dance and Shiba San recently, to name a few. His thumping spin on Day Dreamin from Lupe Fiasco fits right in with the G-House scene that has been on the rise the last few years. Although at first it sounds like a remix that someone just put vocal stems over an already made track, but then it blossoms, it still manages to pull in with a nice round sound. It doesn’t have any sharp edges like a lot of current UK inspired house or garage. Definitely develops into a fun, bouncy, yet ganagsta tune.


ANGELZ allegedly comes from a background of ghost-producing for hip-hop greats including the likes of 50 Cent and it’s always nice to see talent like that flow into other genres. Feel free to pick this track up as a free download over at ANGELZ SoundCloud – you’ll be sure to hear this at a residency near you.

argonaut&wasp - Future Protocol


Indie-Electronic group, argonaut&wasp, recently released their EP Future Protocol. The EP song package is filled with four unique tunes that stand on their own yet cohesively flow together. The first track, "Higher Ground", is MGMT 2.0. The tune's style incorporates prominent electronic elements while keeping the classic indie guitar elements and vocalistic style. Secondly, "Stranger Lover" is much more soulful and R&B inspired. Each varying in pace, these four tracks are a must listen to and perfect to listen to in any situation. These up-and-comings are definitely ones to watch. Stream the EP below, enjoy!

SWERVE SQUAD - [SS001]



Swerve Squad is a team of innovative producers based out of Los Angeles, CA.  Their roster is full of MVP's, such as: AWERAINOH CEE ROSSMURPHYLORD OLAF, and YUNG ORCA! The best part about it all, the oldest person in the crew is 21 years old. On February 27th they will be making their debut online release with [SS001], featuring Rainoh Cee Ross and Murphy. We can not label these two tracks with any genre restricting names... you just have to listen for yourself. Both tracks will have your ears glued to the multitude of flawless production from beginning to end.

"Lost Squadron" by Rainoh Cee Ross is a melodic masterpiece that takes aspects of many genres and blends them into a beautifully tough beat that keeps you moving. RCR's production is very diverse and this track displays that perfectly; there is no limitation to the distinct French influence he brings to his work.

"Squad Up" by Murphy is the anthem! Just bump this on a good sound system and you will understand. Incorporating deep Dubstep sounding basses to his iconic glitchy drum patterns and sample chopping makes this track an all around banger. Murphy is a beast with everything he does in his productions, he definitely has a sound nobody can replicate and knows what direction to take his music. 

These guys are just getting started and we know they are about swerve all the way to the top! Keep your eyes on Swerve Squad and visit their website www.swervesquad.com to preorder the upcoming release. 

Peace,

MIAMI HORROR – LOVE LIKE MINE (FT. CLEOPOLD)




Melbourne to Los Angeles transplants, Miami Horror, have recently released a contender for a summer mixtaple staple.. and it’s only February! They’re back at it and teasing their new album with the release of “Love Like Mine ft. Cleopold”. If you’re in the Los Angeles music scene, you’ve no doubt ran into one of the 5 members on a night out. These guys are a clear reflection of their upbeat, playful, funky disco. “Love Like Mine” features their buddy Cleopold, a fellow Aussie dancesmith, who has collaborated and remixed Miami Horror in the past.


“Love Like Mine” reminds me of something that I’d hear while crusing the roller rink at Moonlight Rollerway in Glendale on a warm summer evening. Or hiding from the heat under an umbrella on a resort beach in.. Miami? Yeah. It splits the trendy mold of dark and deep dance music that has been clogging the virtual highway lately – it may take a play or two, but this earworm should rub you the right way if you allow it to. The guitar driven melody runs through lyrics praising a love, but also teases that we’ll never have a “Love Like Mine”. After this release, I’m geared up for the full album from Miami Horror and what’s sure to be a busy year for them.

Alfred English - Lovers And Friends (FREE DL)



Alfred English is literally going to break the internet one day... HE IS EVERYWHERE ON THE WORLD WIDE WEB AT ALL TIMES! His URL and IRL presence is something you can not miss. Lately he has been uploading a track or two a week, and they are all impressively addictive. This track is a flip of the classic "Lovers And Friends" by Usher, Ludacris, and Lil Jon. Alfred stays true to the original R&B feel of the track but then  proceeds to transition into a chopped up Club rendition of the original song's melody accompanied by some vocal samples that give this remix a great modern twist. He definitely has the perfect balance of hilarity and seriousness to his production and that is what makes every upload so entertaining! 

Check out Alfred's Soundcloud for a constant feed of great music! He also is an amazing artist, check out some of his stuff. This is just the beginning of the vast body of work he has to offer; there is no stopping Alfred English!

Peace,

ZIGGY X JUST DRE PRODUCTIONS- SEX SONG JERSEY CLUB MIX



Just Dre is a secret weapon that more people need to know about. Listen to this track and you will understand why...
This guy has got Jersey Club on lock; utilizing the rap songs he produces to flip them into HUGE Jersey Club anthems seems almost unbelievable because he makes it all seem so simple! Dre takes motifs from club music and uses them to his advantage with iconically crisp vocal chops and choruses hold it all together to replicate a typical rap remix. This is far from just any normal remix, you can tell how much time Just Dre puts into every aspect of his production and has the mind of a great studio producer combined with the roots of a New Jersey native in the Jersey Club movement!

Keep your eyes on this guy... you will not be disappointed!

Peace,
Isaac Treece.

Solheiro - Last Minute Winner (Original Mix)



Opening with a playful dance of light synths, ‘Last Minute Winner’ helps you feel like you’re on a sailboat going through a kaleidoscope. We are feelin this different take on Nu Disco out of Mexico.  Solheiro seems to have cemented himself within a sound of his own, which is getting a great response from the masses. The bouncy vibe and clockwork claps keep this disco jam churning till the last beat.

It provides a ray of hope with optimistic lyrics. The vocalist isn’t credited, perhaps it’s Solheiro himself? They play a background role in this track, but definitely bring it all in. In the future hopefully we can hear some awesome collaborations with professional vocalists. I feel like it would really tie this type of sound together. A good teaser of things to come – Solheiro is on my watch list for this year!

BONUS!
Check out one another of our favorites! This is a great Nu Disco flip of Loyal! This time the smooth vocals are provided by Eastside. Just a little something to get you prepped for this Spring. Vibes for days!



Cheers!

JONAS RATHSMAN – WOLFSBANE (Method White Recordings)



Wolfsbane by Jonas Rathsman is the debut track on Disclosure’s Method White label (a brand new extension of their Method Records Label) and they’ve gone a dark deep route with the selection. Wolfsbane provides a shadowy cloak over a driven thump of a beat. It has a mysterious medieval energy to it – something you’d hear while exploring the catacombs of a wizard’s tower and I love it. The airy texture of the synth dances till you drop into a tubular bass sound. It’s refreshing to hear ‘deep’ house without a repeating wood block pattern.

I’m definitely hoping to hear this track on a dancefloor soon and I probably will given the support Disclosure has given it. It will be exciting to see how influencers with their own labels direct things, especially with brooding releases like Wolfsbane. It takes itself seriously without being overbearing or tacky about it. This track lends itself to a very tasteful and independent vein in the current world of house music.

Oh Wonder - All We Do (LYAR Remix)





Today we got some incredibly smooth vibes in our inbox from this amazing duo called  LYAR.  LYAR is a collaboration made up of two media arts students from Germany - Chris (20 years) and Phil (24 years)The group was established last last year in October. Like many artists, these two have found that when you are creative in one art form it can crossover into another. We are grateful they have found a muse in music making. They definitely bring something fresh and new to the dance music scene with their style. I can't believe they have come up with such great sounds in only 4-5 months!

Their vibes are very smooth but are textured with chops and vocal pitch bends that brings the sound full circle. Not to mention the synth production that is top notch. Building emotion with each stroke of the key. Definitely something you would hope and expect your DJ at the next pool party to play out while your soaking up the sun rays. 

We can't wait to see what the future holds for LYAR. We'll be sure to keep you posted. Until then be sure to give them some love via their Soundcloud, Twitter, and Facebook.

BONUS!
A little something to get you prepped for Spring Break! A mixtape and our favorite remix from the guys!
