Nightshifters is proud to present the debut release by Edinburgh, Scotland's No.1 rave master - Hostage! Alan Parley has been around for a bunch of years, starting with Hardcore and Techno, but finding his true home in bass-heavy club music. He's been a darling of the electro blog scene for years and has racked up some serious mileage already, now he's ready for the prime time.

"Shake It" is the tour-de-force that you've been looking for this year, four prime-time club bangers: Leathered, Roll On, The Slave, and Shake It. Hostage proves he'll get the kids to stage dive in no time; glow sticks will be pumped, confetti thrown, fireworks exploded. Hostage is here and you better get ready.

"Shake It" also features remixes by Acid Jacks' Jackmaster (Melbourne) and AC Slater (New York City). Both these guys have been burning up their scenes and these remixes just prove why. AC Slater comes fresh off a UK tour and remixes for the likes of Moby and Drop The Lime. Jackmaster just released his debut Ep on Idiot House records.

Parker MusicWorks presents the latest Terrence Parker release entitled, "Obamalistic". While this legendary DJ, Producer and Remixer from Detroit is known for his soulful and inspirational House vibes, this one is especially unique as it chronicles the historic election of the first African-American President of The United States of America. It is a wonderfully soulful production with a massive groovin' melody. There is also an instrumental version for those DJs who want to enjoy one of TP's finest and most inspiring musical productions.

4TRK016 – Bip Soup “Hangar E.P.” 4 Track Records – TECH-HOUSE
*Receiving support from DJs: Danny Tenaglia, Derrick May, Dave Clarke, Dubfire, Ken Ishii, Michel de Hey, Jori Hulkkonen, DJ Misjah, Jim Masters, Punisher (Detroit), Rob Warner, Lance Desardi, DJ Hyperactive, Droid Behavior, Matt Rissi

Dubfire – “5 out of 5”
Danny Tenaglia – “4 out of 5”
Jim Masters – “nice deep groove, chugs along and builds layer by layer. 5 out of 5”
Rob Warner – “Nice. Will be playing for sure. 4 out of 5”

Bip Soup is the Moscow-based electronic producer Petr Serkin (DJ Combinator). The main idea behind his project is real-time techno improvisation. In the studio Petr produces half-finished tracks, which can be controlled in real-time at gigs. So the answer to the question [what and where] appears in a matter of seconds, even before the realization of music and sound sculptures begin. Therefore each new live gig is it's own unique performance. Bip Soup offers two deep tech-house gems here with the title track "Hangar" having thick deep chord stabs complimenting the sparse bass line which eventually builds up to an eerie sci-fi break at just the right time. Having elements of both house and minimal techno working well together to be an instrumental track for DJ's to transition either direction in a set. The second track "Superhangar" is mechanical swinging tech-house floor filler. So many moving parts in the percussion all-playing off each other brilliantly with a ton of decay on the effects building into a juggernaut of a track that can see itself being played to the very end.

Laurent Garnier – “Joel as funky as ever. Full support. 4 out of 5”
Dubfire – “Great melodic techno from my man Joel! 5 out of 5”
Nick Warren – “great music, both are very classy. 5 out of 5”
Danny Howells – “Great tracks! Thank you. 4 out of 5”

Luciano – “Love it! 4 out of 5”

After the success of the last Cirez D release on Jel Ford's Jericho label we now have a perfect follow up from another top Swedish producer - Joel Mull. Joel has been firmly established on the scene for over 10 years now but lately has been doing some amazing projects for labels such as Audiomatique, Saved and Cocoon. Here he delivers the perfect Jericho two tracker with Viewpoint having a supremely funky bassline, lush chords and catchy hooks whilst Hollaland is a great contrast with its menacing yet funky feel and clever vocal refrain followed by enormous drop.

HOG001 – Pig & Dan “Twisted Lip” Hedgehog – TECHNO/MINIMAL
*Receiving support from DJs: Laurent Garnier, Dubfire, Steve Lawler, Christian Smith, Davide Squillace, Hernan Cattaneo, Tedd Patterson, Laidback Luke, Paolo Mojo, Orde Meikle (Slam), Meat Katie, Lewis Dene, Sarah Main, Chris Fortier, Jonty Skrufff, Wollion, Anil Chawla, Tom Taylor, Maher Daniel, Dave Robertson, Tim Andersen, Gorge, Gavin Kingsley, Jim Rivers, Manuel le Saux, Neil Quigley, James Talk, Murray Richardson, Raymundo Rodriguez, Tom Budden, Enzo, Elite Force, Andy D. (M.O.S. Radio), Paul Hamill, Jerry Frempong (Push FM), Stuart King, M.O.D.E., Pete Gooding, Steve Grant, Luis Bonias, Richard Grey

Laurent Garnier – “I like Confusion very much will play this a lot! 4 out of 5”
Dubfire – “Great new one from the boys 5 out of 5”
Hernan Cattaneo – “like this! Thanks. 4 out of 5”
Christian Smith – “thanks. 4 out of 5”
Laidback Luke – “Oh shit! I LOVE Confusion. Will support. 5 out of 5”
Tedd Patterson – “Twisted Up is pretty hot. I’m gonna enjoy rockin’ this one. 5 out of 5”

Hedgehog is a brand new imprint owned by the UK production company - Splinter Productions. It sits alongside its other labels such as Jericho perfectly with the emphasis being on slightly harder techno grooves that don't have the melodic content charactaristic to Jericho releases. To kick the label off we have the mighty Pig & Dan who should need no introduction having produced so many seminal releases and remixes over the last few hears that its hard to keep track! Here, the sound is slightly different for them with the Twisted Lip being a rolling twisted techno track with razor sharp production and serious build with some devastating edits. Also on offer, we have Confusion - an unashamed old school killer of a track with its old rave samples and enormous rave bassline - not for the faint hearted. Look out for other hot projects on this brand new label.

DTX078 – Max Toymaster “Devil featuring Harrison Crump” Dust Traxx Chicago – ELECTRO HOUSE
*Receiving support from DJs: Danny Tenaglia, Laurent Garnier, Fedde Le Grand, Roger Sanchez, Osunlade, Tony Senghore, Honey Dijon, DJ Misjah, Ibiza Global Radio, Lance Desardi, Ibiza Sonica, Sleazy McQueen, Raoul Belmans, Lawnchair Generals, Jay West, Angel Alanis, Lady D, Chris Simmonds, Damian Wilson (CR2 Records), Ricky Ryan, Rob Paine,

Fedde Le Grand – “Love the Crump master! 4 out of 5”
Roger Sanchez – “Thanks. Will play. 4 out of 5”
Ibiza Global Radio – “Full support. 5 out of 5”
Lady D – “this is nice. even pacing, wish it had one more element, something memorable...but its very nice overall. 5 out of 5”

Straight out of Toys-r-Us or maybe Kidrobot, new man on the scene Max Toymaster has a brand new release sure to wow you. Devil is an electro house jam featuring the vocals of the legendary Harrison Crump. Add on a hot remix from Alan Braxe of Roule/Music Sounds Better With You fame and you've got something extra special. But just to top it all off we've added 3 extra remixes from new comers Bad & Rad, Rainbo Video and Sirhan.

ANM016 – Tony Senghore & Baron Bane “Love.Cure.All Remixes” Anonym – ELECTRO HOUSE
*Receiving support from DJs: Danny Tenaglia, Laurent Garnier, Dave Clarke, Bad Boy Bill, David Guetta, Deetron, Jim Masters, Tommie Sunshine, Rooster & Peralta, Martin Venetjoki, Chris Fortier, Damian Wilson (CR2 Records), Mike Gillenwater

Bad Boy Bill – “Thanks. 5 out of 5”
Tommie Sunshine – “Cool stuff. 4 out of 5”
Jim Masters – “Wicked dark, dirty techfunk. 5 out of 5”
Chris Fortier – “Both remixes are good. I’ll play them. 4 out of 5”

The Love.Cure.All remixes are in and they are hot! Nothern light prophet Style Of Eye goes from strength to strength delivering his trademark groove with vigor, flair and amazing body-language fluency. These fresh sounds, huge breakdowns, solid grooves and full underground credibility are exactly what keeps Style Of Eye so essential these days. David Ekenback hits hard with some of his dirtiest and most rocking stuff so far, galantly serving up the goods with this amazing little number. A fool-proof production that is guaranteed to rock floors to devastating effect. It is gutsy, pure, raw & slightly rude. Resistance is futile.

KLIT002 – Kaufmann und Ferdinand “Egger E.P.” Klientele – TECHNO
*Receiving support from DJs: Danny Tenaglia, Dave Clarke, Laurent Garnier, John Selway, Ken Ishii, Michel De Hey, Technasia, Lance Desardi, Chris Fortier, DJ Misjah, Thomas Penton, Ibiza Global Radio, Ibiza Sonica Radio, Tim Thaler (Sonnet77 Radio), Andy Toth, DJ FEX, Rob Warner

Laurent Garnier – “Yep Egger is the one for me. THANKS!! 4 out of 5”
Danny Tenaglia – “4 out of 5”
Ibiza Global Radio – “Full support! 4 out of 5”
DJ FEX – “Sounds good! 4 out of 5”

Kaufmann und Ferdinand have had a big year with their Kaufe Musik imprint, Working with remixers such as Jesse Rose (Made to play / Get Physical / Berlin), Someone Else (Foundsound Rec. / USA), Riva Starr (Frontroom / Dirty Bird / GB) and more. Now sharing a release with their musical family across the atlantic ocean, Klientele is proud to present Kaufmann und Ferdinand's simply titled, "Egger EP". This three track EP is an excercise in the unique "klik klack" sound that had fans including Dubfire, Claude Von Stroke (Dirty Bird), Paco Osuna (Minus), Mauro Picotto, Phil Kieran, Frankie (Frankie Records), Troy Pierce (Minus), Justin Robertson, Layo Paskin (Layo & Bushwacka), Behrouz, Hernan Cattaneo, Jim Masters (Hi-Tek-Soul), Satoshi Tomiie, Hector Romero, Joey Beltram (Tresor / New York), Silicone Soul, Stacey Pullen, Mijk van Dijk (Gigolo), Dj Vibe, Oscar G and more playing their last EP. With "Egga" they have crafted a growling modern mechanical acid track. Next up, we have "I Saw You," a tweaked out rubbery jack track that plays somewhere between Get Physical and Green Velvet. Last but certainly not least comes "I am soooo mad," a quirky, tech-ed out trip for fans of Dirtybird.

Great Newletter Coverage From DJ Tunes!

Update on DJ Download ISP Issues

Hey guys,
As many of you know, DJ Download has just moved offices. This morning we were informed that they are experiencing some unfortunate connection issues. They have been kind enough to set up a temporary delivery option, which will allow us to deliver all the content we have on deck, with the same release dates, in advance of the time we would normally deliver it. We're not sure how this outage will affect us with the coming holiday schedule that we were informed about earlier this week though. Hopefully their ISP will pull it together fast enough for us to get one or 2 other deliveries in before the break, but we're trying to prepare for any outcome.

Good luck Team DjDownload! We certainly understand what it's like to work with a difficult provider! Soldier on!

Here is their message to us:

"We are experiencing some problems with our new office internet connection which is causing delays for labels uploading content.

I have set up a temporary account on the server which has a large connection- we will be taking this server offline on Monday morning (17th Nov), so please can you deliver as much content as possible by then to this address and we’ll start processing it on Monday

Sorry for the late notice, we’ve been messed around by out telecoms provider and I wanted to be sure that we get your content for the next few weeks sorted out."

John Selway – “nice groove. 4 out of 5”
Jim Masters – “wicked groove and like the cut up vox. 4 out of 5”
Markus Schulz – “original is my favorite. 5 out of 5”

People Mover Productions is happy to bring you its first installment of the LINWOOD series. The original production by ANDY TOTH spurned so much interest for remixes that we decided to release it in two parts. Part 1 features Toth's original. LINWOOD is a haunting and deep production that features heavy rhythmic production accompanied by growling vocal samples. Sound effects in the higher frequencies create a dark atmosphere. The COLIN ZYSKOWSKI REMIX plays with original rhythm of the vocals, and features the pads and synths more heavily. The JOSH DAHLBERG REMIX spreads out the percussive aspects of the original and adds a dark melodic layer over the top. Be sure to make room in your crate for all three of these dance-floor-friendly tracks. And keep an eye out for PART 2, with remixes, by KEITH KEMP, ITZONE, and JOSHUA HARRISON!

Tracks Capacitor, Resistor and Transistor will push any circuit board to the max resulting in dance floor frenzy...

Metrik is storming the scene with consistent support from DJs, press and radio alike.

Push had been doing the rounds for a while and a constant in the box of DJs all over from Andy C, Teebee, Dylan, Tech Itch, Hype, Keaton, Loxy, Ink, Spor, Raiden, Bad Company, Jade, Black Sun Empire, Manifest and Cold Fusion to name just a few.

Just like the title explains Jake hits with a steady driving deep track with a massive bassline sure to keep the floor moving, echo'd vocals and reverbed synths this the ultimate deep djs package. Remixes are provided by Pin Up Recording artist and owner B.Original, Rulian Ross & Pete-R. B.Original (USA) supplies a much deeper version of the track with electronic drums and live guitar riffs. Rulian Ross (France) supplies a minimal remix for the minimal techy heads with low bit drums and ghostly synth builds.

With over 58 releases, literally thousands of tracks & 80 remixes appearing on over 30 labels, Angel Alanis (Tresor, Tronic, A-squared) has returned to the straight up techno that earned his reputation. Working with co-founder, Marea Stamper AKA Foursquare (fresh from a project with acid innovator DJ Pierre), Alanis and Stamper present the debut release for the Klientele label. Klientele showcases the bleeding edge of techno, not unlike Alanis' "Life", which was charted in May by techno luminary, Adam Beyer and Foursquare's upcoming work which will be remixed by Kyle Geiger of Drumcode. The Klientele project is the first official communication from the pair since remixing Portishead's "Third" in its entirety. Their work on that project was almost universally praised: Laurent Garnier ("Excellent!"), Miss Kittin ("Yo... It really rocks... " ), Drop the Lime ("Killer..."), Bob Rifo/ Bloody Beetroots ("Amazing stuff guys!!!!!

Is that his real name? Is he from Europe? People sometimes get a little confused about Harrison Crump and who he is, so let's set the record straight. Yes, it is his real name and no, he's not from Europe. This Chicago born and bred native still lives in "The CHI" and has become that rarest commodity known in dance music - a highly sought-after producer, remixer, singer and songwriter. This guy's songwriting abilities have led to a close musical relationship with long-time friend Felix da Housecat and have earned him production credits on P-Diddy's dance music project Divided Souls. Now it's time for a hot collaboration from his upcoming artist album. Hold You So Close features the incredible vocal stylings of Chicago legend Ron Carroll and includes remixes from Ian Harper and the mighty Roy Davis Jr. This one here is gogin to be a favorite with the deep house crews!

Hot on the heals of Seb Fontaine & Jay-P's 'Love Bite', Seb returns alongside producer Alex Blanco with two huge techno/tech house cuts 'Hotel Toast' and 'All This Shit'. Seb Fontaine needs no introduction. Heavyweight house hitter, Seb has been at the top of game for years and in 2008 he shows no signs of slowing down. In the past year alone, unsung background production hero Alex Blanco has worked with the likes of Jon Carter, Oliver Lang, Jamie McHugh, Grayson Deepgroove and, of course, Seb Fontaine. Finally emerging from the shadows he is set to release a string of solo tech-house and techno releases and collaborations in the coming months, all of which are already receiving serious support from a select group of A-list DJs. 'All This Shit' and 'Hotel Toast' are two catchy tech anthems that will have any dancefloor rocking. Full of killer bass and techy undertones, both tracks deserve your full attention.

A2R718 – Lady Foursquare “Xcite Bike - featuring Lil Surge” A-Squared Muzik –
*Receiving support from DJs: Danny Tenaglia, Laurent Garnier, Dave Clarke, Dubfire, John Selway, DJ Chus Chus, DJ Hyperactive, Lee Foss, Meat Katie, DJ Misjah, Naveen G.

Laurent Garnier – “Full support 4 out of 5”
Dave Clarke – “Full radio support. 4 out of 5”
Dubfire – “5 out of 5”
Meat Katie – “Nice, i will get some use out of this! 5 out of 5”

Coming off the success of her remix of DJ Pierre's "Tha Dance", which the acid master himself praised as, "HOT!...the best mix on the song!," , A-squared is proud to present The Lady Foursquare's debut solo release. "Xcite Bike" defines her sound which has received strong reviews from Mixmag and Resident Advisor (not to mention Felix da Housecat). The original (featuring Lil Surge) weaves elements of her two midwestern parent cities together, perfectly balancing Chicago's jack with the minimal motor sounds of Detroit in a blend reminiscent of Paul Woolford's "Erotic Discourse". The result is an 8 bit wonderland, filled with purring synths, sounding more likely to be operated by joystick than midi controller. Legend has it that the automation for the filters in the original was drawn to resemble the ramps in the original Nintendo game. The Angel Alanis Rework is a massive and rawkus warehouse burner which is somehow completely modern and reminiscent of the glory days of acid-house. Also includes a DJ Tool.
