Released 23rd August

The UK is experiencing a current burst in creativity in the dance music scene that is seeing UK producers and DJs pushing the envelope and conquering the world of dance. Appearing at its crest are Cassette Jam, the new boys from the North who are fast becoming an unstoppable force.

With a riotous reputation earned from their early days of eight decks and 2 mixers DJ sets, the pairing of Will and Rory have come good as a live duo, winning hearts and destroying the competition with their violently anthemic, ear-drum bothering tuneage. Early acclaim from Radio 1, Mixmag, XFM and others has arrived off the back of some limited release singles, remixes (Tinie Tempah, The Whip, Ladytron, and beyond) and incendiary gigs at the likes of Ibiza Rocks, Warehouse Project, Chibuku Shake Shake, Fabric, Liverpool Sound City, Snowbombing and many more.

‘Cassette Jam’ is their self-titled debut album, co-produced by the Filthy Dukes’ Mark Ralph, and features collaborations with the Filthy Dukes, Caged Baby, Sunshine Underground and Lego Johnson. Given ample studio time to satiate their synth addiction, Cassette Jam got their hands on the Korg MS20, Moog Voyager, Roland SH101 and the Juno 60 to name but a few. They also mixed the whole thing on German maestro Conny Plank’s old mixing desk. Yeah you got it, the same desk on which Kraftwerk mixed their legendary track, ‘Autobahn’.

HIIO Feat. Terri B! – Something About You

February 28, 2013

South American duo HIIO (pronounced H2O) have arrived in 2013 with their attempt at creating a classic house tune. There’s definitely some classic house vibes here in the synths, the Planet Perfecto influence is pretty obvious. But this track is much slower than anything Planet Perfecto ever put out, and as a result it’s not… View Article

Arty, Nadia Ali & BT – Must Be The Love (Official Music Video)

February 24, 2013

BT is a legend of Trance production, Nadia Ali is a legend of Trance vocals. Any team up between these two is bound to be good, but when you throw in relative newcomer but excellent producer Arty into the mix as well, are we witnessing collaborative genius or are too many cooks spoiling the broth?… View Article

Kirsty – Hands High (Afrojack Radio Edit)

February 23, 2013

Who is Kirsty? We don’t know either, but this looks like her attempt to crack the commercial dance scene and she’s enlisted the help of Afrojack who provides remix duties. Apparently Sander Van Doorn said “supporting!” and David Guetta said “huge!” Although we’d question how much thought they gave to their answers when questioned. The… View Article
