So here goes with my first contribution for Audiation Magazine, I think
we should start with the incredible resurgence of dance music that has
taken over the UK official pop charts at the moment, The majority of it
Deep House, Chilled House and UK Garage, With the more full on EDM
sound starting to lose ground here in the the last 12 months, As we
speak, eight of the top 10 are all dance tracks, top 3 being at 1.and one of
my favourite tracks of this year, Mr Probz - Waves (Robin Schulz Remix)
at 2 Calvin Harris - Summer and at 3. Kiesza - Hideaway…
Great chilled and deep house tracks to look out for this month are Y.V.E
“On the Road" (Armada), chilled guitars with a serious deep bass sound
to this. With a repeating On the Floor male vocal, this one's going to be
Another top track, Spanish Guitar summer style is Alex Kenji Ft Dacia
Bridges, called “work", Out on Spinning deep, Forget Calvin Harris this
track is what really what summer is all about.
One of the best house tracks around at the moment is Lovebirds,
featuring Lisa Shaw called "holding on"… Electro beats and old school
Another awesome Chilled deep track is EDX- “Breathin", Total blissed
out piano’s with an R&B style male voca tol this, plus one of the coolest
baselines you will hear.
Spinnin Records seem to be releasing more and more deep house these
days, Something I’m quite happy about personally ;-)
Another total killer is Tiesto- “Wasted", The Mike Mago Remix. Mike
totally takes the original and turns it into a funky deep house baseline
track, with cut up vocal snippets.
On a slightly harder edge, you shouldn’t miss the new Don Diablo
track, "Knight Time", Coming out on (SPRS). Old school style house
updated for 2014, complete with retro vocal samples from the 90’s.
Larse, Sneaky sound system - "This Feeling" is another blissed out
house track. Pretty haunting in a way, plus an amazing vocal, coming
out on Noir records shortly.
The Shapeshifter guys are also back with “Heartache" feat, Calvin
Lynch. This one drifts slightly in Uk Garage with its baseline, but
retains the Deep house vibe and a soulful male vocal.
Other nice ones to track down are Rene Amesz - Let Me on Toolroom
Oliver Heldens “Gecko" now has a vocal courtesy of The Voice Uk
contested Becky Hill, It's getting abit of negative press for slapping the
vocal on top but definitely UK pop chart bound when realeased on 22
Others to track down this month are, Lupe Fuentes "So High" on Brobot
records, 16bit liotes, the organ track on Anjuna Deep, definitely one of my
favourite labels at the moment, Arron Smth - “Dancin" - Krono remix is an
absolute beauty…. Massive Nudisco/House/Electro track and Currently one
of my favourite tracks around at the moment..
Out now is the huge Cazzette- “Sleepess", Its Destined for a top ten in the
UK pop charts if you ask me, It's that big.
More great deep house tracks Include ten walls, "Walking with Elephants"
on Boso Records, Sweet Baby - “Mickey" on Exploited Records.. And my
other pop chart prediction for this month, "i feel the heat", in the new tesco
advert, Wow what a vocal this has, and an MK remix to boot.
UK’s 17 year old Ella Henderson is set for her First UK No1 when her Debut
Single “Ghost” is Released on the 8th of June. A great soulful funky pop track.
This girl is going to be massive, it also has a fantastic Oliver nelson Funk/Nu-
Diso Total Quality remix.
On a more EDM vibe there is a great remix of Nicky Romero’s "Like home"
track, by one of Brazils most famous DJs Gui Arruda, Look out for this guy in
I'll be doing a DJ top ten so thought i'd kick it off with Gui’s top ten...Also if
you're loving you USA style EDM you can catch my man paul Grundman
AKA PGX From Celeste&Rokuro, every monday at 6:00 pm EST live in the
mix on the jrfm network, repeated on Wednesdays.
There are also a couple of cool remixes out by some bloke called Rokuro,
Celeste&Rokuro - "Signs of time", Elsie- "Wild One" And Rita Ora - "I Will
Never Let You Down"., all to be found on my Soundcloud page.
See you next month… Rokuro

Martin Carr & Junior UKG
Introducing "Hiding" produced by Junior UKG with vocals from
Martin Carr. The is the first original track the pair have worked
together on, boasting of summery vibes along with great
vocals. Junior UKG has 2-step flowing out his ears and he loves
to give the bumpy touch to various tracks, including his latest
rework of Kat Dahlia's "Crazy". Martin Carr with his sweet
vocal tones is sure to get you singing too, having also just
released Rise EP.
"Since I released my first single GETAWAY from the RISE ep back in Feb
14th on BBC Northants Inspiration fm 107.8 with Paddy Grady, the
music has taken a massive jump for all involved. Get Away led to the
meeting of DJ Junior aka Nick Hounslow, as he heard the track on
SoundCloud. Nick got in touch with me directly and asked me if he could
remix the track as he thought he could make a seriously good UKG remix
to compliment the original. So naturally I was interested and we
immediately hit it off from the start. Within 24 hours Nick had finished
the track to my amazement and to my pleasant surprise I was totally
happy with the results. Since then Nick and I have gone onto making
several other tracks and a couple of remixes such as ‘Song For You’ which
I have put on the Rise ep along with ‘Get Away’ which has featured on
many underground and internet radio stations such as the Award
winning FREEK FM, KANE FM, SOUTHSTAR RADIO, URBAN KRONIX,
KRISS FM and many more. The original Get Away track also had a video
made for it and was released on youtube on April 1st and has since
reached over 16k views. Our current project is a track called ‘HIDING’
which Nick has decided to release as a single ep with 4 remixes from
different genres. The SoundClound stats for the clip we put up for Hiding
have been very impressive in the short time we have had it on Nicks page
as are all of the tracks we have done so far. We think we have a fresh and
unique style with catchy lyrics that crosses into mainstream
commercial chart music and judging from the promo campaigns, DJ and
radio feedback we've been encouraged to continue what we are doing.
Anyway be sure to keep supporting our movement as there is plenty
more coming from Nick and myself, Thankyou." Martin Carr.
"I was trawling through Soundcloud one day (as I do everyday looking for
fresh new music & talent) and I came across this track called “Get Away”.
After listening to it, straight away I was hooked and thought “ive gotta do a
remix of this” so I sent the artist a message basically asking him if I could do
a remix of it and send it back to him to see what he thinks. We exchanged
emails for a couple of days and eventually I received the acapella from
Martin Carr and got to work. I finished it within 2 days and sent it back to
him and well, the response I got I wasn’t expecting, he loved it. We started
chatting some more about music and how he liked my style of Uk Garage
and if I had any other productions or could make some more similar to what
I had done on “Get Away” so we exchanged a few tracks and song ideas
which later turned into my remix of his other track from the Rise EP “Song
For You” & our first original collaboration “Hiding”.
Since we put the Hiding clip on Soundcloud the response has been MEGA,
weve had loads of People, Dj’s, Singers, Record Labels & even other
Producers showing interest, love & support for it. Also with 4 of the
BIGGEST producers around at the moment putting their stamp on the
remixes for the EP, its gonna be a force to be heard. First on the remixes we
have Jack N Danny (House Ent) with a Bass House remix, Solo Suspex
(Ayklogic Records) with a 4x4 Todd-esque sounding remix, B1G PROJ3CT
with an awesome homage to how Garage used to sound with his Dub remix
and Zettin Zee with a nice minimal sounding 2 Step remix. We are currently
working on the release date for the EP and it should be available on all good
digital music download stores very soon…..
There is plenty more projects coming from me and Martin as we’ve decided
to keep the collaboration going and produce an albums worth of music
between us, so watch this space for future projects as you aint gonna be
able to listen to a mix cd or turn the radio on without hearing one of our
tracks. Lastly I just wanna say a MASSIVE thank you to everyone who’s
shown love and support over the past 5 months and propelled us to the
position we're in of spreading fresh good quality music to the masses,
THANK YOU." Junior UKG

DEBUT SINGLE ‘KISSES FOR BREAKFAST FT. POPCAAN’ OUT 14 JULY
Atlantic Records is proud to introduce new singing sensation, Melissa Steel. The
20-year-old Bradford native will release her debut single ‘Kisses For Breakfast’
featuring Popcaan which is Mista Jam’s ‘Jam Hot’ record this week, on 14 July.
Produced by upcoming UK talent, Wunda, the single boasts dancehall influences
with its breezy melodies flowing underneath Melissa’s effortless vocals. Filmed
in Jamaica, she speaks about how the location was the best match for the video,
“The song has a summer, island feel to it which is pretty much why we envisioned
Jamaica as the perfect place to shoot the video. I literally had the time of my life
shooting it. I had a blast!”
Dancehall superstar Popcaan, who has previously worked with the likes of Snoop
Dogg and Drake, lends his unique freestyle rhymes and beats to the track. On
working with him, Melissa says, “Popcaan is also a really cool and talented artist.
It was a pleasure to work alongside him on the song.”
Currently in the midst of writing and recording her debut album, the starlet is
working with hot producers such as Kz (Wretch 32, Jacob Banks) Bless Beats and
Jamaica’s finest, Baby G. Set for big things, Melissa is also currently featured on
‘Way We Are’ by dance act Kove.

Thoughts throughout the competiton
I entered the competition with a high moral but I knew that the competition
would be very tough with Outstanding Participants..But overall the journey
was good and full of surprises..

What does music mean to you?
Music is one of the most important aspect of my life,
A way to communicate to pass on a message of a creation the sharing of
creativity, it simplifies my whole being.
Advice to music minds
Keep creating new stuff, work in group, share ideas, have love for what you
do, enhance your creativity, be your true self and keep doing your best.
The affect of the competition & future plans
It brought me onto another level in my musical career.. Now i feel myself like
a fully qualified dj with still many more ambitions to attain....... My plans for
the future are to be able to play all around the world and give my best on all
my gigs and also to launch myself into music production.
This is just the beginning so keep following there's a lot more to come Dj
English Nu-Soul and Jazz producer. I’m currently producing songs
for my first album. There are collaborations with some
interesting artists and they are working in the music industry
creating Soul music - delicious cosmic soul dust with bass and
beautiful poetry & melodies . I have worked on this collaborations
album for two or three years. I play keyboard and piano, I’m from
the UK, I live in a beautiful part of London where I have a studio to
make music and record with artists.
What does music mean to you?
Music is a life line, it isn’t just a hobbie and that passion that I put
into making songs not only is positive it’s a vice. I may not be a
singer-performer, a lot of big industry people expect musicians
to do it all and this idea is unrealistic.
Where does your inspiration come from when creating music?
Usually it comes from a feeling or a song that strikes a chord with
me. I don’t always know. Often that happens when I make my
favorite songs. I use instruments that compliment each other;
I’m working on being a stronger beat maker as far as composition
and mixing. I write lyrics and wrote Lose Your Smile lyrics and
Attempt Again lyrics. It’s a dream of mine to write and produce
with one artist and make a body of work, who knows what will
Music Industry advice?
Unless your already working with them nobody has your best
interests at heart and I say it from experience. Just focus on
making good music and forget about who said what and really
focus on getting the songs you like the most out to the right
people even if its not listened to it really takes a lifetime to find
yourself as a musician and artist.
THE PERSONIFICATION OF SOUL Vol 1
A self-produced Various Artists album where I have decided to
collaborate with fresh talent and produce Soulful collaborations. I
have a lot of different vocalists featured on my album. It is the
most unplanned project not for the time it took to make, just, for
the way the collaborations took place. I started producing this
album back in 2011 and my album is really my way of showcasing
my skills as a new producer and timeless songwriting.
If I am going to be honest my album tracks came to life when I
worked with musicians and I want to continue doing it this way.
The super star on my album is Zulema Nakinda, she is a producer,
singer, songwriter and graphic designer from New Jersey, NY.
Zulema’s voice reminds me of old school Mary J Blige. Bernard Rose
plays Saxophone Lovers Groove and Under the Stars adds a Jazz
sound I really appreciate him recording this way because he wasn’t
used to up loading and sending mp3’s! I’ve featured a talented
London based singer-songwriter with a rich soul voice on a deep
groove track called Soul Personified Linda Muriel and we may have
a few more songs to get done, lets see! I can’t give too much away!
Ooberfuse - March Of The Downtrodden
Introducing the debut single from Peakflow Records signee
Ooberfuse, titled “March of the Downtrodden”. The Woolwich,
London-based trio, consists of band members Hal, Cherrie and
producer Kinky Roland. The brand new release provides listeners
with a taste of things to come, a catchy dancefloor/radio friendly
record, with infectious vocals and wide appeal.
With a celebratory production and rallying vocals, the single
explores the bands unfolding, marking their introduction in the
best possible way, through song!
Fusing Pop and Electronica sounds, Ooberfuse provide a lethal
floor-filling injection, demonstrating their ability to leave
footprints on some of the hottest parties this coming summer.
Tim Fitzpatrick; known in the industry as Hectic, has
dropped a wide variety of acclaimed tracks in a very
short period of time, ranging from dubstep to glitch
hop to garage and UK bass music. Hectic's previous
releases, including the tracks “Complex”, “Evolve”,
“Fatal”, “Sudden Death”, “Don’t Tell Me”, “Zone 10”,
“How Could You” and “You Got Me” have established
his name once and for all. His latest releases, the
''Trendsetter'' EP and ''Drop It'', as well as various
tracks on DJ Hatcha's label, Hatched, delivered a raw,
uncut and heavy dubstep workout to the
dancefloors. Setting the pace with relentless beats in
a spacious and rough soundscape, it is clear that
Hectic gives a new twist to the dubstep genre. He has
received radio play and support from BBC Radio
1Xtra, Kiss FM, XFM and Sub FM.
London producer Hectic has been busy at work in the studio and
has some great remixes for our ears! A dark twist of Iggy Azalea
ft Charli's "Fancy", wow I've switched off from the commercial
world but this remix completely destroys the poptastic original.
The remix of I Killed Kenny's "Nobody", nice dark chillstep with
subtle light undertones. Hectic also gives a gritty edge to
Veronica Vesper's "Fuck The Ego".
State Unknown enter the summer season with the vocal smasher
alongside Jamie Lewis,a talented singer from Essex, UK, who
alongside State Unknown, has been working like crazy with a
string of quality releases with numerous high profile labels and
producers (Hed Kandi, Dirty Freek, Frater and Stent, Gorgon City).
Original mix is a pure summer corker bringing the early inspiration
of the conquering London vibe of the late 90's/early noughties to
the cut. Swing beats, big basslines alongside an infectious, hook
laden delivery by Jamie that has all genders hooked in. On the remix,
State Unknown go at it with their trademark sound, skippy 4/4
beats pushing for the bouncing dischorded baseline, twisted
melodies and stabs purely for the deep bass club floors! Also on
remix duties, they invite an absolute gem of a producer, Maff
Boothroyd heralding from Halifax, UK, who State Unknown met
while working on a previous project last year, they had to have him
back on board for another full on energy driven refix! Pure peaktime
I'm pleased to be able to share probably my most heartfelt work to date. By
putting this out into the world I'm trying to create something that will last and
won't be forgotten about in a week's time. That's my intention anyway. I guess
we're all just trying to do something significant. I've tried to make something
sincere and hopefully it resonates with you.
The EP is due for a full release via iTunes, Beatport and Traxsource on 16th June
but I'm giving those people who care about what I'm doing the chance to get it
early. As an additional thank you for your continued support, I've included a bonus
track 'Love Mistakes' as well as the radio edit of 'Lovesick'. These will not be
available on the general release.
I am offering this on a 'pay-what-you-want' basis, and within that there is the
option to get the EP completely for free. I'm open minded about how the music
business has changed and if it turns out to be a good idea, I would like to continue
to do things in this way. I realise that in these ever changing days people have
many different ways of accessing music, most of it for free. I would hope, however,
that if what I do connects with you then you will feel that there is value in it and
you'll be happy to pay what you think it's worth.
The EP has already had plays on Radio 1 and Kiss FM as well as being included on the
next Hed Kandi: Beach House compilation, so I'm really excited for you all to hear it
Much love, Scott. 3

Pōston & Lizzie Curious - Stranded
Black Hole 646-0
Black Hole Recordings proudly introduces a
new addition to the artist roster with the
signing of Dallas, Texas-based DJ/producer,
Pōston. Though the name might not yet
sound familiar, Pōston will likely be found at
the top of the charts with memorable vocal
trance tunage, beginning with his first single,
“Stranded,” and a catchy follow up with
Linnea Schössow due later this summer.
With his debut effort, Pōston joins forces with London dance music artist,
Lizzie Curious, for a seven minute spine tingling rollercoaster. Poston’s
masterfully crafted production skills take center stage just as “Stranded”
begins with a crisp, pounding bassline. Building quickly like crashing waves,
larger than life snares soon intermix, making way for a mystical chord
progression that highlights Lizzie’s unique, haunting vocal performance.
Fans of Lizzie’s massive 2011 hit collaboration, “Departures” with Robbie
Rivera/Cosmic Gate, will appreciate the self-penned vulnerable yet
relatable lyrics that keep “Stranded” in a league of its own. Poston further
cements that notion with a hair raising breakdown capable of wringing
every subtle nuance of emotion from each listener. The dark yet uplifting
breakdown features sweeping strings and solemn piano chords before the
crashing bassline returns with a dash of added spice to disrupt the
Together with Lizzie Curious, Pōston’s major label debut sets the standard
of modern vocal trance at it’s very finest. Don’t miss the first single of this
rising star’s discog; “Stranded” hits Beatport EXCLUSIVELY on June 9th!
Retrospekt & Platkovsky - Faded EP
Slime welcomes Retrospekt back to the label, this time bringing with
him a new partnership in the shape of Polish producer Platkovsky. The
seductive elements of the former’s previous production style are all still
present and correct, but through this forged alliance we are treated to a
brace of tracks that now pack a considerably harder punch. The
combined potency of both producers ensures these cuts will be
essential ammunition for any DJ looking to fill a floor.
‘Faded’ opens proceedings with a rolling kick and pulsating bassline,
before unveiling the Retrospekt & Platkovsky mantra from the mouth of
a wasted partygoer, succinctly put as “Name three fun things to
do…drink, party and smoke”. The track builds itself around an insistent
melody line, layered across speaker-shaking drums that will incite
clubbers to follow their philosophy to the letter.
‘Play Us’ tells the tale of current dance culture across snapping
percussion and percolating drums, complete with a mischievous edge
and plenty of explicit name dropping of the scenes biggest players. A
serpentine bassline slithers and slides around the track with a
chokehold grip, pouring directly out of the speakers and straight into
‘HVN’ drops the tempo down for a sensual little number Perfectly
poised vocals rub gently against narcotic beats and cavernous bass
stabs for a late-night jam that will be the soundtrack to many a headsdown
weekend workout before the sun comes up.
Up and coming house producer Matt Fear steps in to strip ‘HVN’ down
and rebuild it into a monster of a track, relentless drums providing the
exoskeleton around a beating heart of sublime chords and warm tones.
The sting in its tail comes with a killer bassline that will blow minds and
melt sneakers on the dancefloor.

Jordan Morris (feat Dappy) - Taking Your Side (Solo Suspex Remixes)
Born in London, England on August 12th 1994, 19-Year Old Jordan Dominic Morris was
destined for great things from the very beginning.
The influences of the urban North West London scene would soon become apparent in
his artistry and he became a regular performer at open mics and underground
performances throughout London, winning the favor and support of major UK industry
players like Jamal Edwards of SBTV and producers Zay-D.
Jordan went on to record music with UK recording artist 'Faith SFX', building on his
knowledge of music, he fell in love with the sounds of artists like Lemar, Robin Thicke,
Brian McKnight and Justin Timberlake. "I just want to be the best artist I can be, I've been
inspired by so many talented people from all over the world and I feel like I owe it to
anyone who supports me on my journey to simply make them feel something when they
listen to my music".
In May 2013, Jordan signed a management contract with Jareiq 'JQ' Kabara, President,
Creative Director at The LDN Agency. Impressed by Jordan’s artistic tenacity, JQ
partnered with Music Producer Sasha Farhadian and Business Executive Azos L. Rashid to
create independent label ‘IQMG’ ultimately signing Jordan Morris as their flagship artist.
With many exciting plans in the pipeline for Jordan Morris, 2014 looks to be a year of
great success for the #TeamJM movement.
