Download: Ponty Mython "Movin' On"

First Listen
Label: Dirt Crew

The Dirt Crew label is set to celebrate 10 years of music with the forthcoming Deep Love 10 compilation. Rather than using the occasion to look back on its past successes, the imprint has elected to focus on its future, gathering a slew of exclusive new tracks from artists such as Tigerskin, Edit Murphy, and Kito Jempere for the collection. Featured here is Lithuanian producer Ponty Mython's contribution to the effort, "Movin' On." Named partly for the Brass Construction song which it briefly samples, Ponty Mython's track is a low-sung affair, one which is flushed with bluesy chords, active synth work, and doses of rapid-fire percussion. Out on August 25, the upcoming Deep Love 10 comp can be previewed after the jump.  Read more »

Download: Son of Sun "Feel Like I Feel (John Daly Remix)"

First Listen

Son of Sun (pictured above) is the combined efforts of Berlin-based producer Tyson Ballard and vocalist Sheff. Together, the two recently released an EP via London's Love Fever imprint, but the pair had also worked together on Ballard's 2013 for Voyeurhythm, from which the original "Feel Like I Feel" can be found. Handed over to irish producer John Daly for remix duties, the track is taken to the more space-minded ends of soulful house here. Extending the production to a spacious eight minutes, Daly—who also has a record on the way for Love Fever—subdues the original's vocals beneath layers of bouncing keys and airy pads, which echo atop the rework's loose hats and rounded bass notes. Son of Sun's Whispers EP is out in vinyl form now (and is streaming in full after the jump), with a digital release slated to land on September 1 and an eventual remix EP featuring Soul Clap, Boris Werner, Citizen, and Adesse Versions set to land in October.  Read more »

20 Questions: Jackmaster Talks Fast Food, Rubadub, and Coping with the Endless Party Loop

While it's all but impossible to predict exactly what Jackmaster (a.k.a. Jack Revill) will play at any one of his many gigs around the globe—the Scottish-born DJ has been known to dip into forgotten disco gems, house classics, Detroit techno, old-school electro, and sing-a-long pop anthems, amongst other things—there's little question that the Numbers co-founder is capable of being a real force behind the decks. The folks at London club XOYO have certainly taken notice, which is why they've enlisted Jackmaster for a summer-long 13 Weeks to Jack residency. The series kicked off last month and runs through the end of September, with Jackmaster in the booth every Saturday night, occasionally spinning marathon sets alone, but usually joined by a selection of hand-picked guests, including the likes of Moodymann, Axel Boman, Joy Orbison, Kenny Dope, and others. (This coming Saturday, he'll be playing alongside Steffi and Spencer Parker.) On top of the residency, Revill has still managed to maintain a hectic travel schedule, but we somehow managed to pin him down while he was in Ibiza for an edition of 20 Questions. In the course of answering our queries, Jackmaster touched upon his history with Rubadub, learning from bad sets, the proper role of a resident DJ, and his undying love for 24-hour fast food.

Download: Troy Gunner "Swoon"

First Listen

Budding Bristol talent Troy Gunner will issue his next outing via the fledgling Electro Magnetic Fields label next month. Ahead of the simply titled EMF:005 EP's release, Gunner has sent along icy bonus cut "Swoon" to help spread the word. Here, the young producer displays a proficiency for precise craftsmanship, as every sonic detail appears meticulously sculpted. Still, "Swoon" is far from clinical, finding Gunner coyly splicing bits of refracted soul and even touches of swing (mostly thanks to a handful of chopped breaks) to the production during the course of its run. Troy Gunner's four-track EMF:005 EP is set to arrive on September 22.
