Panic Bomber is wrapping up a hugely successful summer with a brand new original entitled I Only Have Eyes for You Too that is available for free download. The track dives into the deeper, darker side of house as Panic Bomber looks to explore the limitations of the genre. There is a presence of hip-hop and R&B rythym that Panic Bomber has carried with him since his start. We first started hearing from Panic Bomber with sets from the Slap and Tickle Podcast then he released Question, which you can listen and download as well below. Then came the fantastic Gotta Dance Dirty Guest Mix, that mix was something else. So, I would suggest to keep an eye on this guy because his live sets are also one of kind so seek him out!
It was over thirty years ago that Carmen Clayton released Time to Move to very little acclaim, but over the years this funk single has continued to reinvent itself. In the modern era, most of us all know this sample from the widely popular NERO track, Must Be A Feeling. As much as we all loved that track, I couldn’t be more excited to showcase MSCLS‘s rendition of Time to Move. Flexing their softer side with this release, the vocals are paired perfectly to a slow moving, classic disco funk theme. While most of MSCLS’s releases have been heavy on the future-bass, this offering shows us his versatility which we will hopefully be hearing more of very soon. MSCLS quickly told THUMP how this track came to fruition.. ”I was just kinda digging around youtube to spark some ideas and ran across the vocal from Carmen Clatyon,” he tells THUMP. “I decided to throw it over the track just to see what it sounded like and then kinda fell in love with it.” Enjoy the free download on this one.
French producer, Valy Mo, bridges elements of House, Bass, and Soul in the Tokyo Bright EP. Stylistically diverse from track to track, the three-song release echoes Valy Mo’s sentiments of wanting to be free of the confines of one particular sound — venturing from stabby piano House & pitched down, soul-infused vocals from Chris Severe in lead tune, “Bright,” to the club-ready peaktime anthem, “Tokyo Neon,” to finally rounding it all out with the chilled-out bass roller collab with Fuuku titled “Reflection.” This is yet another stellar release from the fledgling label NEST HQ – an offshoot of Owsla, NEST HQ focusing on finding the underground sounds and exposing them to the masses… always for free!

It’s always an exciting time when option4 unloads a new remix on the dance community. Mastering the formula to create the perfect remix is what most people know him for, others know him as the pulse of Denver. This time, the Windish signed player, has been asked by the widely successful group Panama Wedding to remix their hit single All of the People to help build buzz over the recent album release. option4 has turned this electro pop single into a true summer jammer, a rooftop soundtrack to help celebrate the last month of summer. The track is available for free download so I suggest you jump on that and if you are ever in the Denver area be sure to check out option4′s promotional team The Hundred for shows every week throughout the city.
Chris White has had my attention since I began listening to dance music. A staple in growth and cultivation of the scene in the LA area, Chris White has used his moniker Whiiite in every facet of the rise. Whiiite started as a resident at the legendary Control night at Avalon in Hollywood. Booking and DJ’ing was a lot of fun, but soon he began releasing remixes – and that’s when heads started turning. Whiiite has a sound like no other, playing trap before it was cool, and ditching it before the rest of us. Finding a new sound to a finished record can be tough, but one listen to this Lana Del Rey remix and you will hear what I mean. Shades of Cool has more shades and levels than ever before, yet still sounds similar to the sounds of Del Rey. Oh and if you like the artwork be sure to check out Whiiite’s original comic book series that he has paired with his recent EP releases! [Free download via his Soundcloud]
