Borgeous & Shaun Frank – This Could Be Love [The Rooftop Boys Remix]

New York deep house duo The Rooftop Boys are bringing us some much needed fresh tropical vibes in the middle of winter with their take on the Borgeous and Shaun Frank original This Could Be Love. This being our first encounter with The Rooftop Boys I was happily pleased with the detailed builds containing layer after layer of intricate and creative noises. The Rooftop Boys really utilize a wide variety of sounds without cluttering the track yet still maintaining a solid and energetic pace from start to finish. Nicely sampled vocals from the original are sure to keep any crowd chanting along to the beat, so head over to The Rooftop Boys Soundcloud and grab yourself a copy of this one for free. We cannot wait to see what this budding east coast duo has in store for the future, hopefully more of the same!

The Inaugural Anjunadeep Label Tour Launches Today

Since it’s inception in 2005, Anjunadeep has grown into one of the dance music world’s most respected imprints. Now nearing its 10-year anniversary, and boasting over 200+ releases, the label claims strong, ongoing support from many of the scene’s key tastemakers – Pete Tong, Annie Mac, Jason Bentley, Zane Lowe, Disclosure, Sasha, Eric Prydz, Todd Edwards, Tensnake, Larry Heard, Lee Burridge, Damian Lazarus and many more. From breaking the renowned House and Techno duo Dusky, to releasing a yearly compilation series that boasts two iTunes Dance #1s in a row, to now hosting festival stages (begun at TomorrowWorld this past September) and launching this tour, the trajectory is clear – Anjunadeep’s footprint is growing.

Covering seven cities across Canada and the US, the label is now proud to announce a lineup showcasing the full Anjunadeep spectrum, from established label legends to exciting new talent. Joining the tour will be  (in alphabetical order)16 Bit LolitasBeckwithJody WisternoffLancelotLane 8Martin Roth and Vincenzo.

I posted the Anjunadeep 06 compilation back in the Fall of this past year, a collection of 30+ Deep House tracks that are perfect for late nights, lounges, sunsets and showcase the sheer talent Anjunadeep has been able to cultivate from its artists. There’s something magical about the way these tracks are composed, and the creativity from artists on the roster is unmatched. You can surely expect Ibiza vibes in the middle of the Winter as the week-and-a-half tour stops in major cities around North America, and I highly suggest you get out to enjoy some dance music quite off the beaten path if you have the chance.

The San Francisco edition taking place this Friday at Audio Nightclub has been sold out for weeks – and for good reason. To check your city for tickets, follow this link: http://www.anjunadeep.com/tour2015/

Best Of 2014: Deep House

2014 was nothing short of a huge year for the reemergence of the genre that is deep house into the ears of the mainstream festival and nightclub attendee. With massive break-out artists such as Oliver Heldens, Zhu, Gorgon City and many more become rapidly popular the genre is definitely on a full scale upswing currently. With that being said this did not make our job creating this list easy by any means. We were able to narrow it down to twenty songs that we felt really lead the way for deep house into its current lime-lit state. These twenty tracks come from a wide range of artists, but all bring that same strong bouncy four by four sound that we have all grown to love so much in the past year. So without further presentation we give you our MMIBTY editors picks of 2014 for deep house, be sure to check out all the artists pages for more great tunes!

Etienne de Crécy – Night (Cut the Crap) (Sharam Jey Remix) [FREE DOWNLOAD]

One of my absolute favorite DJs/producers from 2014 has to be Mr. Sharam Jey from Cologne, Germany. He’s one of those guys who has carved out his own sound in the G-House world, with thumping bass lines, driving beats, and chopped-and-screwed vocals amidst many of his songs. Sharam Jey’s track “Hum Hum”, which came out in 2013 and saw a remix by Tapesh in 2014 is one of the most infectious songs I’ve heard in House music in a while (“THE PASSWORD IS PLAY!”). If you’re not too familiar with Sharam Jey, you’ll love him if you’re into producers like Kolombo, Shiba San, Sirus Hood, Amine Edge & Dance, Vanilla Ace, and other artists hangin’ out in that realm. I was absolutely delighted to see that Sharam Jey had released a free remix of Etienne de Crécy’s “Night (Cut the Crap)” on Friday courtesy of Mixmag. The song is a little darker than I’m used to hearing from Sharam Jey, but in typical fashion it has hard-hitting kick drums, a fat bass line, and chopped and screwed vocals. I had a great time seeing Sharam Jey DJ live at Hard Summer and Audio San Francisco this year, and I’m ecstatic to be seeing him again next week aboard Holy Ship 2015!

If you like what you hear, show Sharam Jey some love. I have a feeling 2015 will be his biggest year yet…

Mr. Propz – Nothing Really Matters [Kav Verhouzer Remix]

Dutch producer Kav Verhouzer has exploded onto the deep house scene in the past few months, topping charts with his melodic remixes and style. Today Kav has released his newest rework, an acoustic heart-felt remix of the Mr Propz original Nothing Really MattersGreat use of strings and acoustics bring this track to life and a plethora of sounds give the listener an experience comparable to that of a symphony. Leaving the vocals intact Verhouzer works his magic by building a truly original foundation beneath the track, essentially remixing from the ground up. Be sure to grab the track below and then head of to Verhouzer’s Soundcloud for all sorts of free music and some great mix-tapes.

Jerry Folk – So Long ft. BB Diamond

We have grown quite fond of the young Norwegian Jerry Folk’s remixes over the past year, so the release of this original track So Long ft. BB Diamond definitely made our ears perk up. Teaming up with London’s BB Diamond to create an original vocal track resulted in nothing less than pure airy bliss. Folk’s tracks often carry an overriding vocal element that to some extent drives the track with this original being no exception, however in the past most of his releases have been remixes. With the addition of a bass line that is nothing less than bounce combined with well placed vocals this track does it all. From the synth-pop-esque riff throughout or the additional aired out filters this track is sure to put a smile on your face and get just about any dance floor moving. Grab the free download below and be sure to check out Jerry’s Soundcloud for a stockpile of super fun deep house tracks and remixes.
