Spring is finally here (well almost – if you layer up to avoid frostbite) and with tunes as good as these you are bound to feel the bounce this March. Be it the truly lush sounds of Alejandro Mosso’s Rituals album on LumièresLaNuit, the ethereal elegance of Groeni’s enchanting Nihx on Mooncircle, or the dusty grooves and heavy bass pleasures of The Maghreban’s debut longplayer 01DEAS on R&S you’ll want to feel these vibes in the sunshine.
Taking it deeper and darker and ensuring our nocturnal adventures are just right this month are the stunning dance ready cuts of Niro Perrone’s compilation Outlaw Trax 2009-2017 on Unclear Records, the melodic magic of Hidden Empire’s electronica meets techno meets house wonder Mind Palace on Stil Vor Talent and the shining Various Artists including Azari & III and Booka Shade bringing it big bass time to Miami 2018 mixed by Dubspeeka on Get Physical.
As for our regal wonders of the month? We couldn’t get by without Luca C and Brigante‘s oh so sound compilation See Double on For The Record, the Aus Music adventure that is the achingly cool Inside Out series starter by Will Saul, the ever addictive Bearcub’s Landslide on Platoon, Jack Ritchie we salute you, and of course the masterful Deetron as he returns to deliver yet another class lesson with the perfect Deetron – DJ-Kicks on !K7. Enjoy.
