House

TIEKS – Sunshine ft. Dan Harkna

Upon hearing ‘Sunshine’, you may be rightly inclined to think you’ve just discovered your favorite unearthed house or garage gem. The mastermind behind this fresh faced offering however is none other than London producer-come-songwriter TIEKS, his inaugural single on Ministry of Sound to be released 25th September, albeit making...

Anton Borin – You

Belonging to Sweden but now residing in L.A, Anton Borin conjures up an easy-listening house number where simplicity in production is shown at its very best. I’m sure you’ll all agree that there’s nothing sonically ground-breaking with this record but what Anton has executed so well here is a...

Lxury – Let Down

It’s been a while since one of Annie Mac’s ‘Free Music Monday’ tunes have been of any worth. Enter man-of-the-moment, Lxury. His sound is a real fresh of breath air owing much of it to 90’s inspired rave and wistful melodies. He pins his production with simple vocal cuts...

Felon – Colour

London trio Felon (Archie Ward, George Renwick and James Levey) have put their heads together and created something pretty magical. Shimmering keys, swirly synths and solid straight beats are complimented by a pretty straight-forward, old school sounding bassline and sugary sweet vocals. What I particularly like about this track...

Virgo – Virgo

Elizabeth Ann Clark is a classically trained pianist with an affinity for the “cosmos, subterranean worlds” and the different dimensions of “human emotion”. Can you tell? Virgo, as she is otherwise known produces intelligent electronic music fusing her obvious rapport for all things left of centre with unworldly aspirations....

Ray Fields – Sandcrab

ay Fields is a relatively new producer on the scene with an incredible amount of promise. ‘Sandcrab’ is a beautifully balanced record where rich basslines meet fluttering melodies. Dubbed ‘beach-house’, soft organ motifs shimmer through in a style that affords comparison with Todd Terje and Booka Shade (pre-2009). Fields creates a...

Shift K3y – I Know

ere is the new single from the London based producer aka. Lewis Jankel called ‘I Know’. A tasty little number filled with catchy pop-hook melodies, funky synthetic synths, a 90’s style piano and a big busty bass-line. It should be interesting to see if ‘I Know’ receives the same...

Füchse – Sacellum

e love Füchse here at Turks and Underdog HQ. Sacellum excels in the sparse atmospheres and percussive grooves that they always execute so well. Füchse (pronounced fuke-se) are moving on with the times while keeping the hallmarks of ethereal deep house at the very core of their productions. With its dreamy melodic...

Blonde – Higher Ground ft. Charli Taft

t’s a little less upbeat than a lot of Blonde’s previous stuff but it’s still fucking good. I remember listening to some of their remixes about a year ago and was absolutely blown away –  thank God they’ve started doing original productions because they are written so well. I’m over...
