Alina Baraz & Galimatias - Fantasy (Felix Jaehn remix)


The Hamburg-based prodigy of melodic deep house music strikes again with a superb little remix of the collaboration of Alina Baraz and Galimatias titled "Fantasy". Fresh off his remix for Avicii, Felix does not disappoint us with bringing his usual chilled yet really melodic sounds which always make us feel that summer will never end. The remix is already released on Ultra Music, watch out for it!

NuAlias - Ivory


Last week French future house god Tchami made a statement with his brand new Caroline Koch remix that was also reviewed on Budapest Bonkers. The Frenchman said that the new genre should be called future music instead of future house since the term of house music is not broad enough to define the whole genre.

This was my first thought when I listened to this track I got from AJ and Paul, the Toronto-based duo better known as NuAlias. The guys recently had a release together with Pairanoid on the Big & Dirty imprint but it seems like that they just cannot stop releasing epic tracks.

"Ivory" is a superb genre mashing future house/breaks/bass track that got my attention on its first play. Epic freebie which - in my opinion - truly certifies the words of Tchami on "future music". Just check it out and show some love to NuAlias!

NUALIAS - IVORY

Jagged Edge - Where The Party At? (Viceroy remix)


The Sultan of summer aka Viceroy returns again with the newest installation of his jet life remixes. This time he reworked a truly classic track and turned it into a sunsoaked monster which will definately find its way to the beaches and seaside bars and making people smile. Jagged Edge's "Where The Party At?" is an instant party classic but if you want to enjoy a really good time then you shouldn't ignore this stunning remix either. Luckily it's free, so you better show some support to Viceroy!

Caroline Koch - Timeless (Tchami remix)


The DirtySoul label has been releasing some amazing and unique stuff nowadays. Once you have survived your UMF hangover, then you have to drop your jaws yet again with this stunning remix by French future house alpha male Tchami! Caroline Koch, a young Italian singer whose first English single is "Timeless" must be quite happy to receive a lead remix that turned the original into a perfect bassy summer jam.

Luckily, it's already out on iTunes.

Budapest Calling pres. Alle Farben @ Akvárium: 5 essential tracks


The Budapest Calling series closed out its winter season in fashion with a quite memorable set by Claptone (it seems like that it was so memorable that I couldn't put a post together since). After a 3 week hiatus it's time now to kick off a very promising spring season which will contain some pretty nice gigs. 

First up, it's a new setting with a good old friend: BPC welcomes the Berliner Alle Farben in Akvárium Club in the heart of Budapest. Frans is not a newbie to BPC parties as he already took a taste of the deep house movement in Budapest, delivering a gorgeous set in Trafiq. Flying on the wings of his album "Synaesthesia" which was released last year, he's gigging hard, having fun around the globe - while he also delivered a few new productions in the last weeks. 

I've compiled five tracks for you - this time it is not a prediction just having some fun while warming up to the Friday night. Listen and enjoy!

LEXER FEAT. BELLE HUMBLE - FEELS LIKE THIS (ALLE FARBEN REMIX)
This remix is creating huge waves around the blogosphere in the last few days as it is unreleased yet beautiful: a brand new remix to compliment the debut album of Lexer which was released this Monday - I'm sure we will hear this in Frans' set.


ALLE FARBEN - TEMPELHOF
This is where the legend began, back at the abandoned airport in Berlin - one of Frans' first and most well-known productions, having a bit techier edge than nowadays.


HEYMEN - IF I PLAY YOUR GAME (ALLE FARBEN REMIX)
Yet another quite recent remix by Alle Farben, playful melodic house beats showing what would happen if Frans would play your game.

THE AVENER - FADE OUT LINES (ALLE FARBEN REMIX)
One more high octane remix by Alle Farben which was released last autumn and became super popular among Youtube channels and fans, it would be a blast if he would play this one out. 


KLANGKARUSSELL VS. ALLE FARBEN VS. SAM SMITH - FARBENKARUSSELL (DJ SCHMOLLI MASHUP)
And really custom pick for the end, though I'm sure this one won't be played but it really deserves a spin - at least during the warmup. Stunning mashup by the Austrian DJ Schmolli which will bring smiles to all the listeners.

PARTY INFO:

Venue: Akvárium (1051 Budapest, Erzsébet tér)

Lineup:
2200-0000 Revue
0000-0130 Kovary

Budapest Calling pres. Claptone @ Trafiq: 5 essential tracks


Following the high flying birthday party of David K in January, the Budapest Calling crew strikes again with its monthly installment - a spring starter Aquarius carnival - that is promising to be epic.

The headliner of the Thursday evening will be the mysterious Claptone, while Moon will warm up the dancefloor in Trafiq and Blatti will help you to squeeze your last energies in the hours of dawn. As it is becoming usual this year, Budapest Bonkers will help you to get ready for the event by selecting five tracks that will be surely played. Here's the Claptone selection!

CLAPTONE FEAT. JAW - NO EYES
The first selection for this night is way too easy: arguably the biggest production of Claptone to date, selected as Essential New Tune on Pete Tong's radio show and simply being everywhere in 2012, "No Eyes" will be considered as a classic deep house tune with years to come.

CLAPTONE - WRONG
With the second pick I'm going to post my all time favorite Claptone track which is apparently comes from the flip side of "No Eyes" and in fact, is exactly the opposite of its title. Huge, huge deep house action with lots of instruments, if you haven't heard it so far, I bet you will love this one!

PURPLE DISCO MACHINE - NO LIPS
You can never go wrong with a Purple Disco Machine track and the same applies to the releases on Kittball Records too. Let's combine then and you will get the newly release "No Lips" which is featured in almost every Claptone mix lately so you better expect it on Thursday!


ADANA TWINS FEAT. HUMAN LIFE - BLEEDING
Starting from the really early days in 2011, Shur-I-kan's Exploited Records is the home of Claptone so it's not a coincidence that he plays lots of stuff from his imprint. The next Adana Twins tune is no exception either, it will be released next Monday but I'm sure that we will be able to enjoy it on Thursday at Trafiq too!


METRONOMY - I'M AQUARIUS (CLAPTONE REMIX)
And let's save the best for the end: this night will be a carnival for Aquarius people who may already have or will have birthday celebrations in the near future and Claptone was kind enough to think about them and orchestrated this magnificient remix of Metronomy. Party on everyone!

Venue: Trafiq (1051 Budapest, Hercegprímás u. 18.)

BYNON & DOMENO FEAT. ALICE BERG - GOLDEN HEARTS (DANNIC RE-EDIT)
One of Daan's favorites over the last two months and what a coincidence: it was released this Monday. This one will be played for sure!


DANNIC & SHERMANOLOGY - WAIT FOR YOU
Dannic teamed up with the Shermanology crew late 2014 to produce an epic party bomb like "Wait for You". Either the original or the Jewelz & Scott Sparks remix, you just cannot go wrong.



MAKO - BEAM (DANNIC REMIX)
This was a huge success in its time and it always works in big rooms. Expect it!



MYDO - PUSH

LOOP! Birthday with Oliver $ @ Grand: 5 essential tracks


LOOP! Events were responsible for many memorable nights in Budapest and this Saturday (7th February), it's time for them to celebrate again. The simple occassion is a birthday and the invited superstar is none other than Berlin-based beatmaker and last year's Ibiza favorite Oliver $.

Further to taking the house scene by a storm with "Pushing" (alongside Jimi Jules), Oliver established himself a home at Defected Records, took numerous gigs in Ibiza last summer and lashed out some stunning remixes throughout the autumn club season

The party will take place at Grand, the brand new club situated in Óbuda.

OLIVER $ & BrEaCh - WATCH ME WORK
Oliver's latest joint just got a release on the 10th anniversary compilation of Dirtybird. Produced along with Ben Westbeech aka BrEaCh, we got some pure house music right over here.



ROMANTHONY - LET ME SHOW YOU LOVE (OLIVER $ REMIX)
Even though this is not the newest work of Oliver, he still manages to play it nearly every time. So does the original, this is timeless as well and will surely work on dancefloors for many years to come.



HERCULES & LOVE AFFAIR - DO YOU FEEL THE SAME (OLIVER $ REMIX)
Oliver's latest remix offering arrived in December and quickly found its way to the top jocks' playlists as well so it's a safe bet to say that this will spin on Saturday night.



ED ED - I GOT (SOMETHING YOU NEED) (OLIVER $ REMIX)
From Berlin, from Defected Records: Ed Ed and Oliver $ makes a really cool team, you better expect this one.

Luca Lush - Promise


The New York-based Luca Lush already proved himself as a talented producer on the bassier side of electronic dance music. This time he decided to treat us with a stunning future house/deep house genre melting free track, titled "Promise". Being both banging and mellow this one will be a perfect transition track if you want to spice up your sets with something really unique.

No wonder, I'll play this a lot and hopefully you will as well, since it is a free download. Grab it and show some love to the artist!
