Pre-Release: 7/28/2009
General Release: 8/18/2009

DTX057 – Bear Who? “The Beat Box Remixed” Dust Traxx Chicago – HOUSE
Bear Who? That man behind international hit "Fix My Sink" which hit the UK billboard & BBC radio charts for 13 straight weeks, brings his next HUGE collection of future hits entitled "The Beat Box Remixed" to the Chicago based house label Dust Traxx, which in the course of 10 years has managed to release some of the biggest cuts in house music today. "The Beat Box Remixed" is a collection of "futuristic" digital-only remixes from a collection of some of today's hottest artists including Paul Johnson, Gene Farris, Blakkat, Swirl People, Vernon & Dacosta and several others. It's seduction without romance, penetration without pretense, this is the future sound of hip hop with a house edge, let's face it "sweat" (aka sex) sells and that is exactly what you'll get here. Mind crushing pop music from beyond. This is dance music with no boundaries, no limits and it dares to go where most haven't dared to explore; the result: infectious hooks and contagious rhymes make this a release to remember!

IM039 – Bas Mooy “Like A Virgin EP” Impact Mechanics – TECHNO
Like a Virgin EP from the US-based Impact mechanics label. Bas Mooy kicks things off with chunky beats, glitchy analog stabs and a big, round fat bottom end - just the way we like it! This release brings us the immensely talented Boris Ross, Virgil Enzinger and Impact owner Submerge transplant all these talented artist with there drop dead stunning re-rub of Like a Virgin and you have a hit. You have to love the glitchy, clicky, grinder from this release. Like a Virgin is a collaboration between Dubfire, meets Richie Hawtin.

Quality release that will please the hard and minimal crowds alike, this is an amazing track ready to do work in your peak hour sets.

SB003 – Eskimo Twins “Red Triangle EP” Street Beats – ELECTRO HOUSE
We're really excited about this release, and pleased to have Eskimo Twins on board - a talented duo from Leeds who are making some big waves in the scene. When I first heard lead track Red Triangle it instantly reminded me of certain records that got me into dj'ing & dance music in the first place - I can hear elements of classic tracks like Bambaata's Planet Rock, Hashim's Al Naafiysh and Cybotron's Clear...the pioneering electro sound of the 80's, the Street Sounds Era. Red Triangle...a record for breakdancers & nu-wave ravers in equal measures, and we love it.

On the flipside, Insidious grabs you by the throat and gives you a swift kick in the goolies, a heavy-ass rock n rave track (as much as i hate to use that phrase). Eskimo Twins write fantastic hooks & melodies, dark and sometimes off-key & spooky, but it just works. To me this track screams Justice beats with Queens of the Stone Age vocal & melody...praise indeed. Remixes come from another fast-rising electro startlet in the shape of Jo Kira, who takes elements of Red Triangle and turns out a firing tech-houser with phat tribal drums and bags of for the Space terrace. Insidious gets a right rollocking big-room makeover from Mr Reliable also known as Hostage...someone who has been on our radar and doing good things for several years now...Booom.

Eskimo Twins can be seen playing live up & down the UK and in Ibiza throughout summer. Also look out for further productions on the new Wax:On label and Pieces of Eight Records.

Radio / Club DJ support from:
Zane Lowe - “Love the Insidious record!”
Annie Mac - “Hostage & Jo Kira mixes in my club sets, great stuff!”

Annie Nightingale, Eddie Temple Morris, Boys Noize, Fake Blood, DJ Feadz, DJ Mehdi, Tom Findlay (GA), Herve, Alex Metric, Alfredo, Danny Rampling, Erol Alkan, Justin Robertson, Mark Moore, Gildas (Kitsune), Beni (Kitsune).
