Dissect Transect : Top dance tracks to watch out for in April 2016

Once again we are showcasing some of the finest tracks to watch out for across the electronic music spectrum. The past few months have seen a huge influx of new talent making waves across the UK, and worldwide. Fresh labels continue to pop up supporting new artists with a dramatic increase in vinyl only imprints releasing some of the hottest underground electronic music available. Aprils selection ranges from up and coming deep house cuts to more hard hitting techno flavours we expect to be hitting the dancefloor in the coming weeks. 

Steven Be Calm ‘Never Come Back’

Starting off with some fresh late night dancefloor material we have up and coming alias Steven Be Calm on Bristol’s ‘Shall Not Fade’ imprint. ‘Never Come Back’ is a love letter to raw 90’s house with a modern edge. Powerful percussion and deep rising chords are the ingredients to many a rolling dancefloor track and Steven Be Calm has got it right on point with this particular release.

Paradiso Rhythm ‘Greetings & Salutations’

Next up is some fine Deep House which has just dropped on House of Unity’s Paradiso Rhythm. House of Unity is a label that prides itself on showing the love and appreciation for good quality house music and has been outputting some of the best new talent since 2012. ‘Greetings & Salutations’ is the epitome of fine rolling groove material with its subtle warm chords and complimentary vocal cut driving the vibe throughout. This is surely a track that will be in prime position in many a warm up DJ’s arsenal in the coming months

Vincenzo Maurice ‘Calming Down’

Third on the list is Berlin based producer Vincenzo Maurice with a brand new rough house jam that is bound to get some heads moving. ‘Calming Down’ begins with a relentless 909 percussion onslaught heavily tape saturated and ready to cause some dancefloor destruction. A sizzling piano riff is introduced half way through the track adding to the momentum as the crunchy hi hats do their work to beef up the groove.

DJ Wave ‘Mad About You’

DJ Wave has made a splash onto the scene with his first release ‘Above the Clouds’ on the excellent Lobster Theremin imprint. ‘Mad About You’ takes inspiration from early sounds of Chicago and Detroit with its punchy groove and spacey pads building the initial vibe in the track. As the 4/4 beat keeps things rolling a floating synth line is introduced which takes centre stage to really give this track a sense of space.

DJ Haus – I Can Feel It [Unknown To The Unknown]

Last on the list for this month is the latest from UTTU main man DJ Haus with his brand new jam ‘I Can Feel It’. DJ Haus is known for his dancefloor ready house jams with a signature use of deep chord stabs and retro-futuristic drum progressions. This particular track pays homage to the legendary 808 state with the opening loon bird sample introducing the shuffling groove along with warm vocal chops as the track progresses.  Excellent club material as usual which is sure to blow up in many DJ mixes this month.
