LA based duo Falcons has been on the scene for a while now, consistently producing top quality tracks and remix. Now they are back with the third volume of their R’n’B re-rubs and it does not disappoint.
We featured their killer collaboration with Mike G, their remix of Ciara’s ‘Oh’ earlier this year, and the rest of the Remixxes, Vol. 3 maintains the highest standard. From Brandy & Monica to J. Cole & Missy to Tweet, all four of these remixes would slay dance floors from California to Moscow.
As the title suggests, there are two more volumes in the Remixxes series from which ‘Vroom’ (above) comes from. Remixxes Vol. 1 is available on the Falcons bandcamp, alongside some of their original material, and Remixxes Vol. 2 can still be grabbed for free via their Facebook page.
Taking the familiar Chicago style and twisting into an explosion of beats, vocals and synths pretty much sums up the first half of this release and really sets up Crypticz as the British answer to Slick Shoota. The other side is totally unexpected however, as the BPM drops down to reveal a breakbeat filled, future jungle mix of the title track. Both tracks are top notch and this should be the push needed to get Crypticz right at the forefront of the UK footwork movement.
Luvin U will be available later this month via the label’s Bandcamp.
The fourth contribution to our mix series is from Bass Machine Music head honcho and Salt Lake City resident, JRapp. We’ve been following Bass Machine for some time after a few quality releases and remixes from Strict Face, Sines, JRapp, Zenojim and Grayz really got the label up and running.
Next up on the block is JRapp’s second EP for his label, the Church Twerk EP, which drops May 15th. It includes great remixes from Strict Face, DJ Tiga (of Brick Bandits) and Sage Caswell.
We are very pleased to present a fantastic mix from JRapp which is available to listen to below. You can also download the mix and check the track list here.
You can preview and grab copies of Bass Machine’s past releases at Beatport before the Church Twerk EP drop next week. You can also download a free remix by our own Sideswipe of JRapp’s ‘Raw Dice’ here for a limited time.
