Amber – Keep It Gone EP | mobilee Comments

artworks-000086644533-2otafu-t500x500 Techno maestro Ambivalent returns to the warm embrace of house music once again for his new EP on mobilee under his Amber guise. Keep It Gone rounds up three rock solid house grooves packed with sweetly sonorous layers of synth and vocal, all wrapped up with techno sensibilities. All tracks are available to stream in full.  Available August 08, 2014. Killer poolside feels from mobilee yet again. From mobilee:
Kevin McHugh aka Ambivalent returns to Mobilee with his second full release under his more house-inclined alias Amber. Having launched the alias with the Waves of Grain EP in January, McHugh has already graced several parties as Amber this year, playing a classic NYC/Chicago house-influenced sets (with an Amber set at Richie Hawtin's ENTER. night at Space Ibiza set for September). Meanwhile McHugh continues to evolve his Ambivalent techno productions, with a hugely popular recent acid remix of Danny Daze on Jimmy Edgar's Ultramajic label, and a collaboration with Michael L Penman on Tronic that continues to climb the techno charts. The Amber project is one of several McHugh is maintaining at the moment. Originally starting as part of the collaborative project Jake & Amber, their 'This Is Mine' release kickstarted a wave of creativity that allowed the NYC/Berlin producer to explore more melodic sounds influenced by the house music he loves. Having signed the first batch of productions to Mobilee, this second EP is led by perhaps the biggest of all the Amber tracks so far, 'Keep It Gone', which loops its insistent vocal hook over a continuously swelling and subsiding bassline, retaining a sharp acid edge to counterbalance the track's sweeter vocal-inflected side. This balancing act plays out in the EP's two other cuts, 'One Touch' and 'Pentagon', with both tracks constructed around ominous, powerful bass patterns, illuminated by flashes of synth melody and skittering vocal samples.

With support by some of the most distinguished artists within the industry such as Richie Hawtin and Troy Pierce, it wouldn’t surprise me to see his project gain CONTINUE READING

Heavily atmospheric and contemplative. The preview comes to us about a month after Edu and Bambook's remixes and two months since the original mix was first shared.  You can check these out below.

T.G.I.M. – Cari Lekebush | The Jellyfish/Opening Doors (2 Part DJ Set) Comments

This weeks T.G.I.M. comes to you courtesy of one of the most relentless techno deejays on the face of this planet, Cari Lekebush. This Swede is definitely cut from a much different cloth than the EDM main stage folk, made especially clear by this marathon of a  2-part deejay set. I had my first encounter with Cari at Lightning in a Bottle last year where he headlined the Woogie stage and where his set was classified by our greater group of friends as a "Techno bloodbath." To make the experience CONTINUE READING
