After the massive success of their latest hits ‘Get Down’ on Doorn and ‘Fire In Our Hearts’ on Revealed, Russian trio Swanky Tunes are back again with ‘Fix Me’ featuring stunning vocals from Raign. Set for release through Flamingo Recordings on 21st July 2014.
With a catchy vocal and rolling staccato synths, ‘Fix Me’ combines all the elements of a high energy and infectious club track. The latest in a long line of stand out electro tracks, ‘Fix Me’ looks set to rival the success of its predecessors and further propel Swanky Tunes into dance music superstardom.
Having spent the past 15 years working in the music industry, the trio have gained increasing support from the likes of Tiësto, David Guetta, Laidback Luke and many others, establishing themselves as one of the most noteworthy electronic dance music acts of the moment.
They boast releases on leading dance music labels Axtone, Spinnin’, Refune, Size and Doorn as well as massive collaborations like ‘Make Some Noise’ with Tiesto [Musical Freedom] and ‘No One Knows Who We Are,’ from Kaskade’s acclaimed ‘Atmosphere’ album.
Backed by some of the biggest names in the game and having performed at Ultra 2013 and WMC in Miami this year, Swanky Tunes can look forward to playing at coveted festival Electric Zoo in August and Tomorrowworld in September.

UK’s celebrated Basement Jaxx touch down in Brooklyn for a highly anticipated DJ set at Verboten’s Zeitgeist series on Wednesday, July 16. Nearly four years since their last official album release, Basement Jaxx are also set to release their new album Junto on August 26 via Atlantic Jaxx/PIAS.

Earlier this May, the legendary producer duo of Felix Buxton and Simon Ratcliffe debuted the club-ready, jacking “Unicorn,” the first track to be taken from Junto. It has met with universal praise, working as a perfect taster of what the full length has to offer. Both “Unicorn” and album track “Mermaid Of Salinas” are now available as an instant download with every pre-order of the digital album. Listen to “Unicorn” and “Mermaid Of Salinas” now at: www.soundcloud.com/basement-jaxx
Junto marks the duo’s seventh studio album and the title, which translates from Spanish as together, sums up the spirit of the record and the very essence of the Jaxx’s desire to unify people with their music. “With this album,” says Felix Buxton, “we wanted to do something that felt more at one with the world.” This approach is reflected in the titles of “Power To The People,” “We Are Not Alone” and “Love Is At Your Side,” as well as the uplifting “Never Say Never” and the throwback fun of “What’s The News” and “Sneakin’ Toronto.”
The last few years have seen the pair take time out to write not one but two film scores (“Attack The Block” and “The Hooping Life”) as well as producing an orchestral album in collaboration with the Metropole Orkest. In 2013 they teased out new music in the form of two tropical cuts “Back 2 The Wild” and “What A Difference Your Love Makes” and played a number of their legendary carnival-esque live shows.

[Free Download] Child Actor New Video & Single for “Against The Night”

•June 23, 2014 • Leave a Comment

Child Actor



Experimental indie pop duo Child Actor self-release their ambitious genre-blending sophomore album Never Die on July 15. A nostalgic nod to young love and loss, the official music video for lead single, “Against The Night” premiered virally

Free download of the single HERE

“It’s a paradise. It’s very beautiful but at the same time it’s so dangerous. It’s where anyone can find joy or death at any moment. It makes love more important, but maybe scarier too.” - Child Actor’s singer, Natalie Plaza on her home country of Venezuela, a place defined by uninhibited warmth, celebration and violent socio-political unrest. The crooning vocalist could just as easily have been talking about the vibrant blend of passion, euphoria, and dread that lies at the heart of Never Die. 

An ultimate reflection of a modern “pop” record, Never Die is an album that thrives on the sublime thrill of contradiction; relentlessly confronting and celebrating the push and pull between love and death, fear and pleasure, reality and dream. As ambitious, sophisticated, and complex as it’s creators, this self-produced album from Max Heath and Natalie Plaza marries the instantly gratifying essence of pop music with electronically altered vocals, stop-start tempos and R&B-leaning experimental fringes. An intimate sentiment that could only be sparked from life partners and band mates, Child Actor offers an intensely personal form of songwriting appealing in equal parts to the body and the heart.

Taken as a whole, Never Die is an insistently rewarding and hauntingly transcendent experience. Sonically, the album is a riot of genres: synth-pop at this purest form (“Against The Night“), emotionally resonant lo-fi (“Morning“), indie-leaning chillwave (“The Memory“), plus the swirling R&B influenced “Forever” featuring textural backbeats and allusive lyricism spouting, “If ever we should leave one another I know it’s not the end, I will find you, even if it’s a long way.” Deep circulating synths and overlapping textures convey the duo’s ethereal interpretations of what “Forever” really means.

When asked how he thinks Child Actor‘s music might “change the world” Heath’s answer takes the same existential approach as his music stating, “There will be more plastic; there will be slightly less hard drive space; the music industry will become imperceptibly more splintered and a number of people will feel a peculiar kind of sensual pleasure.” - Max Heath

Never Die is available for purchase on July 15 via physical and digital download. Vinyl pressing will be available at a later date. Stay tuned for select tour dates to be announced soon.

Preview: My Digital Enemy ‘Don’t Give Up’ – Out June 30th on Zulu

My Digital Enemy
‘Don’t Give Up’ 
Release Date: 
30th June 2014
Danny Howard premiere [BBC R1]:
Building on a string of successful releases this year, My Digital Enemy are further establishing themselves as one of the most exciting house acts in the UK, releasing new track ‘Don’t Give Up’ on their own ‘Zulu Records’ label on 30th June.


Receiving its radio premiere on Danny Howard’s BBC Radio 1 Dance Anthems show, ‘Don’t Give Up’ blends melodic chords, stuttered vocal samples and a cool and gritty bassline on the drop that’s guaranteed to fill floors this summer.


The Brighton based pair Serg and Kieron, who have worked together on various projects for over 10 years, have kicked off 2014 in fine form. Aside from producing, the duo have been busy on the decks at Miami’s WMC conference, where their remix of Matteo DiMarr & Dashka’s ‘Closer’ received huge reactions as well as running Zulu & Vudu Records, topping respected house charts with releases.


January saw ‘Shamen’ receive support from industry heads Pete Tong, Steve Angello & Danny Howard as well as featuring on Tiësto’s Clublife Afterhours Essential Mix, with further releases on Vudu Records and Toolroom in May gaining similarly high acclaim.


As producers in 2013 they managed to notch up an impressive five Beatport House top ten tracks. Three of those in the top three spot, with their original track ‘Wrong’ hitting number one and staying there for six weeks.


With their productions continually in demand, a series of releases on high profile labels such as Toolroom, X Recordings and their own Zulu & Vudu records, as well as a busy DJ schedule that sees them playing amongst others, Toolroom Knights in Ibiza, My Digital Enemy are set for great things in 2014.
