DJ/producer trio Visionquest are back with a brand new release to kick off the year, and it's set to drop via their own self-titled imprint next month.
Named 'The Monstrueux EP', the three track release comes stacked with a trio of plump and juicy club cuts, one of which we're premiering right here via the DJ Mag Soundcloud.
'The Monstrueux EP' — that also features Tuccillo and Jenny Mayhem alongside the Visionquest gang — is out 4th March via Visionquest. Snap it up!
M.I.A has just been confirmed to headline Lovebox festival in London this summer. The festival, which has been running for twelve years, once again returns to Victoria Park in Hackney, East London on Saturday 18th and Sunday 19th July.
In literature a 'volta' is the moment in a sonnet when everything changes — where the writer turns full circle, switching viewpoint. For Eric Volta however, with a handful of energetic signings to labels such as Maceo Plex's Ellum Audio (July 2012), Seth Troxler's Visionquest (September 2013), even Dirtybird (2010), his name inferred the electrical unit (named after Alessandro Volta) rather than a stylistic writing technique.
Butch by name, knowingly camp by nature (at least in his press shots), the German producer christened Bülent Gürler is best known for his 2010 First Choice sampling hit 'No Worries' but has had releases for the likes of Trapez, Noir and Rekids, showing the value placed on his floor-filling, and often quirky, house.
British house label Hatchwork have issued us a free download of Shaun Reeve's new tune 'CDV'.
One of the founders of global techno supergroup Visionquest alongside Seth Troxler, Lee Curtiss and Ryan Crosson, Reeves has made his name as one of today's key pioneers of tech-house, producing everything from clinical techno to warmer, atmospheric house.
“It was never meant to be the end. It was a transition,” say Visionquest on the recent end of the Mayan Long Count Calendar – heralded by the media as the supposed apocalypse - ahead of their new project, Visionquest Thirteen.
With a regular spot in our DJ Mag Top 100 Clubs poll, it’s no wonder Brooklyn’s favorite techno outpost, Output, clinched out a Best Of North America win. As one reader commented, “The sound system is hands down one of the best in the five boroughs.” Having spent more than one night immersed inside its Funktion One laden walls, we are hard-pressed to disagree. The 12,000-square-foot venue is a converted warehouse, with unvarnished concrete and exposed steel beams lending a vibe that suits its regular line-ups – think residents like Horse Meat Disco, Bonobo and Seth Troxler.
