Richard Dinsdale- Share The Love (Original Mix)

Richard Dinsdale is kicking off 2011 with a bang! After 5 years of producing for other labels such as Toolroom Records, Global Underground and Ministry Of Sound he has decided to set his own label up, Tanzanite Records and what better way than to kick start the label off with a single from the head honcho himself.  "Share The Love" is a beautifully crafted House track with Techy Disco elements engulfed by a hypnotic vox in the background. Guaranteed to get those girls and boys strutting their stuff on the dance floor. This groove will keep you hooked right from the beginning. . .



Rogerseventytwo- You Take Me Higher (Original Mix)

Amazingly, this irresistible Disco House singalong went unsigned for months and months until A-Trak (who had made it a staple of his live sets, both solo and as Duck Sauce with Armand Van Helden) snapped it up for Fool's Gold. "You Take Me Higher" is finally ready to go from a fileshared DJ secret weapon to a true club anthem!



Chris Lake- Sundown

DJ/Producer Chris Lake has released the music video for his new single “Sundown” the first single off his forthcoming 2012 studio album. The track, with its rolling bassline and gorgeous melody, is a guaranteed sing along to champion any dance floor.


Trent Cantrelle- I Want A Freak

Blu Music is proud to release "I Want A Freak" produced by Trent Cantrelle. New Orleans-born L.A. based producer Trent Cantrelle is dubbed by Pete Tong as one of the hottest House talents from the US. Cantrelle's smash rock hybrid "Runaway" was an instant hit and is licensed in over 10 countries. "I Want A Freak" is a successor to "Lights Out", which was released earlier this year. The video below shows a group of clubbers dancin' in a discotheque, but they are not normal people, they're all freaks!

Rave In Switzerland Has Been Blamed For The Death Of Two Dolphins

 A pair of dolphins may have died after being fed drugs by ravers after a second animal died. Police looking into the deaths in Connyland, Lipperswil, Switzerland, initially thought the deafening music from the rave may have killed dolphins Shadow and Chelmers. But zoo vets are awaiting toxicology test results to see if they were poisoned by narcotics thrown into their enclosure during the rave.

A spokesman from the Whale and Dolphin Protection Society stated ‘We have reasonable evidence to suggest that the extreme noise levels from the two day Techno party severely affected the immune system of the dolphins. Dolphins are very sensitive creatures. We warned against a Techno party taking place in this location for these very reasons.’ The event produced noise levels over 100 decibels, which is of course unacceptable for this type of parties.

and here's the rave that killed those dolphins . . .

Oliver $- Granulated Soul (Original Mix)

Oliver $'s follow up to his massive smash "Doin' Ya Thang" is an equally stretched out deeper groover. Not quite as punchy as his last but there's definitely something about it that makes you want to bounce. It features a wicked rambling sample that you just can't help but get lost in.



The Shapeshifters & C-Dock- Nothing But Love For You

Internationally renowned DJ supergroup The Shapeshifters drop another club anthem on Defected, this time enlisting C-Dock a.k.a Charles Dockins for uplifting vocal duties.

Simian Mobile Disco Produces Little Boots New Single "Shake"

Little Boots has unveiled her new single "Shake". The song, produced by Simian Mobile Disco's James Ford, premiered on BBC Radio 1 over the weekend. The track is the lead single from Little Boots's as yet untitled second album, which is due to be released in 2012. The sound of this new song could be described as raw and spooky, a bit more down-to-earth. Take a listen to this incredible track below.  


SebastiAn- Embody

People say SebastiAn is the dark side of Ed Banger records, I know he likes it, and I must say I agree with that. But I also believe he created what people are calling the Ed Banger sound. When I heard "Embody" for the first time, I imagined Prince and SebastiAn in Paris, sharing a glass of wine in a smoky basement. He surprised me and I hope you'll be touched too. So Me directed the video.


Frankie Knuckles pres. Director's Cut feat. Jamie Principle- I'll Take You There (The Shapeshifters Remix)

Having worked with Jamie Principle on some of the most seminal House records ever created, expectations are understandably high for Frankie Knuckles' latest single.

"I'll Take You There" features all the things you'd expect; luscious chords, fierce bass and of course a flawless vocal from Principle.

Intruder feat. Jei- Amame (Long Ass Mix)

What's this tune? is a question DJs are asked frequently, though very rarely by each other. "Amame" has been floating around a very select DJ circle on limited vinyl pressing for some four months, and the question has evolved to how can I get hold of this tune? "Amame" is a Murk production from Oscar G and Ralph Falcon under the guise of Intruder. Any Murk production is a rare thing, and a record of this quality and breadth of appeal is perhaps even rarer.
