vocalist, John Reid, loved the remix so much he agreed to rerecord

new vocals for S.K.T.

Rokuro

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

massive.

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

synths.

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 ;-)

8 www.AudiationMagazine.com


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

records.

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

june.

9


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

2014.

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

Matthew Daniel

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

come.

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!

Hectic

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

smasher.

22 www.AudiationMagazine.com


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

The Beat Corporation ft Alison Bethune & Natasha Sky

You Don't Know

A bumpy rework of a classic released on

Champion Records. The video is a blend of urban

style, funky graphics, and kick-ass dance moves!

Slick editing and moderately paced shots to

match the bouncy beat. This is one for your

summer playlist!

The Beat Corporation are a group of artists that came together to create

music with no limitations. Based in Manchester UK, Tyler Daley & Jody

‘Jodz’ Spence are both established producers & songwriters in their own

right and share a common goal which is to make effective club music that

has no boundaries. From Deep house/Nu disco/soulful house/Dance &

Electro with deep heavy basslines the vibe is reminiscent of the old school

House and Garage era they grew up in with melodies playing a big part in

the sound.

A big coup for the boys was when their track ‘Elevation’ was played in a

Disclosure & Zed Bias back to back at Warehouse in Manchester. Their

biggest profile remixes are for Roy Davis Jr, Omar, Zed Bias, Ghetto n MC

Nasty and more. Continuing their incredible progression, later this year

The Beat Corporation have been confirmed to play at the Glastonbury

festival in Bez’s Acid House tent.

‘You Don’t Know’ is a cover of the classic RnB record by 702, originally

released in 1999 & became a dancefloor smash in the UK Garage 2step

scene shortly after. The 2014 cover features vocalists Alison Bethune &

Natasha Sky, whom the Beat Corp both met locally in Manchester. Alison

Bethune has been involved in various tracks across different genres, with

her vocal often described as soulful and sultry. Natasha Sky is a 22year

old singer-songwriter from Manchester. She is in the process of recording

her first album which features well known musicians such as Aziz Ibrahim

from the Stone Roses & Simply Red.

Garage and House in the early 90's. Having found himself in Ibiza

for a few summers he played a gig at Cafe Mambo and was

subsequently asked by the owner to come back the next year as

the first full-time resident dj. In the spring of 2011 Jason developed

the Ibiza 971 Club Radio show which has a current audience of

260,000 people weekly via his association with the Addicted To

Ibiza Facebook Group Page. I play House Music all night long, you

can call it what you like, Techno, Deep Jakin House, tribal garage

whatever but as long as the lady's are dancin the party is rocking.

A little nice edit bringing back the good oldschool atmosphere.

Jason bye delivers the first in a series of summertime slams, remix

comes from the hands of the man like Mickey G NYC baby.

future classic, summer anthem ‘Lonely’.

La La Land is the new project of two successful UK producers (Mister P &

Voodoo), who have numerous international dance hits under their belts,

‘Lonely’ continues this momentum, with an infectiously catchy pop

vocal, and cool club sound.

with the video racking up an impressive 265,000+ views so far on

YouTube. The track has also already picked up early radio support across

BBC Radio 1, 1Xtra, and Kiss FM, Capital Xtra, with Cameo, Target,

German DJ/Producer D.O.N.S. delivers a forward thinking techy EDM

Pōston & Lizzie Curious - Stranded

Black Hole 646-0

www.blackholerecordings.com

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

dancefloor.

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

your brainstem.

‘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.

London producers Solo Suspex provide a garage spin with two remixes including a 2 step

version.
