Organic New Music Friday #17
We're welcoming in the weekend with a new instalment of New Music Friday - this week celebrates more of the best new tracks from the Leeds scene and beyond.
Fosters Top - Be Safe
Rising up through the scene is Nottingham-based producer and member of the BabyStep family, Fosters Top. He's been cranking out some hot edits recently - check out his latest acid-infused Nicki Minaj remix here. Be Safe is his smoothest work to date, blending delicate textures and synths against spacious breaks.
You can listen to Be Safe on SoundCloud now.
Jeremih & Shlohmo - The End (Huna Break Mix) [ec2a]
Huna is the latest to join the ec2a crew, treating us to a jungle-ridden remix of Jeremih & Shlohmo's The End. Describing the track as one that "just came together organically", it packs serious heat whilst retaining elements of minimal breaks.
You can listen to The End (Huna Break Mix) on SoundCloud now and download for free.
J Wax - The Way
Fresh out today, J Wax is back to treat us once again - this time with super-chilled, electro number The Way. Be sure to check out the artist behind the artwork too - @sorayadagman on Instagram.
The Way is out now on SoundCloud.
NICE1TOM - GAB MIX 017 [Gimme A Break Records]
Joining the GAB boys this week is Leeds-based DJ and producer NICE1TOM, for the latest instalment of their mix series. Expect some serious hardcore that will sweep you off your feet this Friday night!
You can listen to NICE1TOM's mix on SoundCloud here.
DJ Mell G - Work That Shit Out [LAP]
Never failing to disappoint with her stream of ghetto-tech bangers, DJ Mell G's latest track Work That Shit Out is no exception. This electro-fuelled foot-stomper is a serious contribution to LAP's Issue II, where she is joined by the likes of Partiboi69 and Soda Kids.
Octo Octa - Goddess Calling [Mixmag]
Octo Octa has revealed her latest work, on co-founded label T4T LUV NRG - a three-piece EP entitled She's Calling. The opening track, Goddess Calling, explores our relationship with music, creating "the union of sound and ritual". "While many describe dance music in terms of escape, for Octo Octa and many others like her, dance music is about connection. The connections we feel on a dancefloor are transformative, but in time spent alone, dance music remains a powerful tool for connection with nature, with ourselves, and with something ineffable that feels like magic."
