Option4 – You’re ILL

The man behind Denver’s exploding house music scene and Night Supply Records, Option4, is back at it again and this time we have got one hell of an original production on our hands You’re Ill. Option4, better know around the mile high as Brennan Bryarly has been on a roll lately with remix after remix topping charts on HypeM and music outlets across the interwebs. With the cleverest of samples, Option4 wastes no times getting this track rolling. Sampling The Packs chart topper Sneakers, Bryarly adds a mean set of snares and a super fun bass line. Along with some other great original production elements we couldn’t be more impressed with this one from our boy Option4!

Joe Bermudez Exclusive MMIBTY.com Mix

If you’re from the Boston area Joe Bermudez is probably a name you recognize and likely a DJ you’ve seen at least once. If you’re from anywhere else in the country – or the world for that matter – Joe Bermudez is likely a name you’ll start to see more and more. Whether you’ve heard Joe on his syndicated Mass Movement Radio show, seen him spin anywhere from a small Boston Garden bar to an opening set for world-class DJs like Rusko (tomorrow night at The Paradise) to Ultra Music Festival, or heard any of his original productions or remixes (for the likes of Britney, Rihanna, and Ke$ha) you know he’s got everything going for him right now. It’s just a matter of time until he breaks out.

I’ve talked to Joe on multiple occasions, witnessing several of his DJ sets, and he is an extremely humble guy. Joe got his start when he was just 18 at a Boston-based radio station, allowing him to program music for the masses. To me Joe has always had a poppy sound, but he’s always been able to balance commercial music with the edgier and more preferable sounds of the House Music world. If I had to compare Bermudez to any DJ or producer out there, it would likely be Kaskade: a melodic overtone with the ability to throw down bangers like any veteran DJ. When Joe reached out to me saying he wanted to record a Deep House mix for the blog I was skeptical at first. My thoughts were, what does a DJ who produces Pop House music and spins on the mainstream side of things know about Deeper sounds? Well, apparently a lot because I’ve already listened to this mix twice today and it’s fantastic. It starts off real smooth, with a late night feel, and moves into club-ready tracks as the mix progresses. The mixing is flawless and though it only contains 11 tracks, it’s an hour of House music that never loses my interest.

Who Is Danny Tenaglia, And What Does He Do To People? [An Interview]

(Photo by: Gary James)
Recently I had the honor to sit down with the legendary Danny Tenaglia. He had just finished playing at the infamous (((Stereo))) in Montreal and gave me a call via Skype to talk about a few odds and ends of his life as a life changer.

Danny Tenaglia is what I refer to as a DJ’s DJ. He has humble beginnings in New York City and has been mixing tracks together since my parents were running around in diapers (I’m 25).  He is one of the most highly respected and regarded DJs in the world of house music. He has traveled the globe and every venue on the planet is happy to open their doors to this wise and charismatic gentlemen.

Born in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, ironically currently becoming the second coming of a genre of music that Danny Tenaglia rode a wave of in the 90’s.  He was born to an Italian family who had hopes and dreams of him becoming a doctor or lawyer, but Danny Tenaglia being the man he is set his sites on something else  and with much certainty achieved his goals.

I decided to open our conversation up by asking a Danny a little bit about living in Brooklyn, and if it had any influence on his music. I wanted to know if that salsa sound that is so ever prevalent in his music was a result of the large African American and Latino culture that made Brooklyn the vibrant and beautiful place it is.

Matt’s House 004

It’s been a little while but welcome back to another edition of Matt’s House. Like always, I strive to bring the very best in Deep, Progressive, Electro, and everything in between. Today we have a few songs that I have recently discovered that I think should get some attention. No matter how new or old good music is good music. Thanks for stopping by for some tunes and be sure to check back soon for some more great music. (Click the Shopping Cart for FREE DL)

1.

First up, we have a remix of one of my favorite bands growing up. This one will get those nostalgic juices flowing. Throw this one on and sing along, I know you know the lyrics too.

2.

Next up, we have a new one from Addal. Addal is still pretty new to me but this song definitely got my attention and deserved a spot on the top 3.  This one isn’t for Free DL, which is the usual at Matt’s House, but it is a deep house gem never the less.

3.

Last up this week, we have another track on the deeper side. This one comes from Teddy Cream, a duo out of Australia. Usually known for their Melbourne Bounce remixes, they have changed it up a bit as of late. Check these out now and be sure to stop by next time for another edition of Matt’s House.

Tom Flynn – Yes Yes Y’all [FREE DEEP HOUSE/NU DISCO DOWNLOAD]

Tom Flynn does not make EDM. He makes sexy sophisticated Deep House and Nu-Disco, music for adults, not kids in kandi and tutus. His name is not recognizable yet in the US, but that’ll soon change. If you’d not heard him before he’s behind Hot Creations monster hit this summer ‘Hoochie‘ and regularly releases tracks on the label, as well as Defected and dirtybird. He makes deep down and dirty music for dark sexy clubs, and I think if you check him out you’ll dig him too.”

The above words came from Chris Robins over at Infamous PR, one of the public relations firms we have the pleasure of working with in an effort to break new music out to the masses. To be honest, Chris had me with his opening line about Tom Flynn not making EDM, but rather making music for adults and not kids in kandi and tutus. This really spoke to me because as much as I understand that tutus and kandi are things that come with the dance music world, it’s not really my scene. Give me a four on the floor beat, a groovy bass line, and some 21+ vibes and that’s all I really need from my dance music. Seems like Tom Flynn is right up  my alley. Today Tom Flynn released his latest track “Yes Yes Y’all” for free download in anticipation of his Fall US tour which is stopping in major cities like San Francisco, Boston,  Denver, Chicago, NYC and more. The track certainly has Disco elements but what I love most is that it samples the legendary Hip Hop track “I Used To Love H.E.R.” by Common. “I Used to Love H.E.R.” came from Common’s debut album Resurrection all the way back in 1994 and it’s great seeing a House producer incorporating it into his songs. I’m a fan of “Yes Yes Y’all” and I’m now very curious to see what Flynn’s live sets are like.

If you’re in one of the cities listed below and you’re a fan of “music for adults” definitely go check out Tom Flynn after you grab this free download!
