With Lexicon Avenue’s ‘Slide’ (in conjunction with Andrew Best) getting released this week on Perspectives Digital, we take a look at his hottest tracks of the moment in the latest edition of What’s In Your Box?
1. Schlepp Geist – Tura (Connasseur)
Really pulls this out of the bag for me. Just a great combination of drama and heat. Love hearing this guys work.
2. Lexicon Avenue and Andrew Best ft Slim Wall – Slide (Third Son Remix) (Perspectives Digital)
Great rework from Joseph here. His use of the vocals and how he effortlessly melds them into his brooding and energetic sound blows me away.
3. Edu Imbernon and Droog (LA) – Smokefalls (Culprit)
These guys can do no wrong really. So their collaborating is always going to be a dead cert. No exception here. Just great.
4. Arqana – Delicada Tormenta. (We Are Here Music)
Myself and Darren Drake. From our first EP on WHAM. Putting our style of beats down and expanding on it with early techno tinged chords and moving basslines while exploring our influences. Musically that is 😉
5. Hugo Brown – Everlast (Music To Please Friends)
For me this is an early doors’ staple. A real solid chugger with tight beats and a very smooth production.
6. Jamie Stevens – Healing Crimson (microCastle)
Symphonic . Soundtrack beckoning with this Vangelis like journey. Lovely composition.
7. Sven Tasnardi – This Girl – Nick Curly mix (Moon Harbour)
Nick Curly is really putting it out there right now. This has all of the tightness of his productions but it is a little trippy and suitably disconnected at the right moments. Top marks.
8. Huxley – I Want You – Deetron Remix (Aus Music)
It’s no secret that I’m a huge fan of this fella’s productions. They are all timeless and have a unique ability to take you to another place in any situation. Been around since April but I have to include it. This particular remix just takes the best elements of the original and , either with or without the crazygreat middle chord stabbing whitenoise layered uplifter (edits for both situations ) it puts you on another planet.
9. Maceo Plex – Solar Detroit (Ellum)
Well. It’s the main man isn’t it. Everyone knows him – and for good reason. His productions, no matter how stark and minimal , have a warmth about them that is inimitable . This one also has that cinematic drop. Inspirational.
10. Pig and Dan – Cubes (Yoshitoshi)
For over 6 years now I’ve had this in my ‘go to” track list. I did an edit of it which I can use in any situation. It sounds as fresh today as it did back then. Really fat, great transitions and a drop that just sucks you in. Awesome track.
