It's been quite a while since our last Serotonin Sunday, so it's only right we bring it back in such fashion. Guy Gerber has always been comfortable as an outlier. From being the rock kid at the rave, to the Israeli DJ on the European club circuit, to the electronic producer with a fetish for live instruments, he tends to skirt the edge of whatever scene he's in. It's a position that suits him well––so far it's led to dozens of lush, melodic records, an ever-evolving live act and his own label, CONTINUE READING
After catching a DJ/Producer in the club it's just a natural instinct to hunt out their old records, and keep a keen eye for new material which is how I stumbled upon Simon Baker after seeing him at the Electric Pickle in Miami for the Get Lost Party. Below is a podcast mix from when he was out in Mexico for the BPM festival that I have had on repeat since Miami.

Like me, your hangover is just about to hit you like a load of bricks. Do not be afraid, for your weekly Serotonin Sunday is here to counter such a violent beast. This weeks jams are as steady as they are deep. James Welsh from Keighley, Britain (UK) is guaranteed to shift crowds into a deep house atmosphere. His sounds will surely mend your soul back in working form in no time. Sit back on the couch relax and press play and let James do the rest.
Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to the very first Serotonin Sunday of 2012. Today I've decided to deviate slightly from the usual upbeat & airy side of my Sunday posts by introducing a bit more ominous character in the nu-disco scene - Kris Menace. Christophe Hoeffel has been writing and producing in his human form from Germany since 1990. However, in 2005 his evil alter ego was born when; alongside disco mastermind Lifelike, Kris Menace released the debut single Discopolis (see video below). CONTINUE READING
Good evening folks! I hope everyone's weekend was celebrated in usual TUFF fashion because I have an over abundance of serotonin to administer to you all today. Once again Sydney, Australia brings another insanely talented nu-disco artist to the pages of rollingTUFF.com with Cassian. Deep thumping baselines, catchy rhythmic synth's, all tied together with that classic '70s disco clap, make it essentially impossible to not stop dead in your tracks and goove-the-fuck-out the second this music CONTINUE READING
So today we have yet another disco phenom hailing from the mean streets of down under. Felix Bloxsom, or better known as Plastic Plates, completed Jazz studies at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music in 2000 and since has worked with a multitude of artists ranging across a smorgasbord of genres. These artists include Sia, Empire of the Sun, Christina Aguilera, Edwardshape and the Magnetic Zeros, The Presets, and Sneaky Sound System, just to name a few. In 2004, Felix was awarded 'Young Australian CONTINUE READING
With Boys Noize in LA on Friday followed by Porter Robinson on Saturday, it's been quite the weekend of raging to hard-core, dirty-electro for rollingTUFF.com. That is why I am very pleased to present to you the soothing sounds of Tristan Fogel. The 21-year old from Northern Germany categorizes his music as "Post-Postmodern New Age Pop," which is essentially a combination of Techno, Minimal, House, and Pop. It's been a long time since I've heard something this unique that is this chill, and would CONTINUE READING
