Tsugi Premiere Lee Van Dowski ‘The Great Escape’

Passed by many labels such as Soma , Ilian Tape, BPitch Control or mobilee , Lee Van Dowski has no real attachment point. The French now based in Switzerland probably prefers to avoid locking himself in a zone of comfort detrimental to his creativity. Tomorrow he will release an EP techno titled Tale Of Ordinary Madness on Crosstown Rebels (founded by Damian Lazarus ), a label with which he had never worked. In exclusivity, you can listen to one of the three tracks, “The Great Escape”.
The only constant of Lee is surely his hypnotic universe and it is not “The Great Escape” that will prove the opposite. The producer assumes the risk of triggering some epileptic seizures with this dark title that takes the time to install its grip on the listener and that will reward the patients with a shattering outro. Huge potential on a dancefloor at rush hour. Read the full feature here

Mixmag Premiere Route 94 & Matt Tolfrey ‘Habitual’

It’s amazing to see how far Route 94 has come over the years. His chart-topping success ‘My Love’ might have propelled him into the spotlight but its sound certainly hasn’t defined him.

Releases on Leftroom and Defected showcased a darker, more sinister tech-house sound and now he makes an appearance on another well-established imprint. Time for Route 94 to head to Crosstown Rebels.

His latest ‘Mind, Body, Soul’ EP is some of the best output we’ve heard from the producer and one of the tracks is a collaboration with UK house hero Matt Tolfrey. It’s a stand-out of the record and it’ll blow the roof off any club it’s played in.

It’s a pulsating roller that uses thick, venomous basslines as the central pont of the track and we can’t stop listening to it. Listen below.

Out now on vinyl and digital release –

Resident Advisor Announce Damian Lazarus & The Ancient Moons ‘I Found You’ Remixes

Black Coffee and Patrice Bäumel have remixed Damian Lazarus & The Ancient Moons’ latest single, I Found You.

The remixes appear on a three-track 12-inch due out in April through Crosstown Rebels. “I Found You,” the title track, has been a staple of Damian Lazarus’s DJ sets since January, when he used it to close his Day Zero festival in Mexico. It was recorded in the Italian countryside in 2016, and is the first in a string of 2017 singles.

“This is the first time I’ve created music in a band situation and I loved every moment of it,” Lazarus says about the project. “I decided to make the new music as a collective and the four of us have created magic. The energy that we enjoyed from beginning to end of this process was electric.”

Kevin Knapp Delivers The Latest Metronome Podcast For Insomniac Events

Dirtybird. Hot Creations. Lost. Poker Flat. Viva Music. Over the past six years, Kevin Knapp’s discography has read like a who’s who of underground house music elite. Now, after a chance meeting with UK veteran Damian Lazarus a decade ago, the San Francisco native is set for his biggest EP release to date, Find Me, his latest four-tracker debuting on Lazarus’ Crosstown Rebels sub-label, Rebellion.

So, we thought it was high time we got an exclusive mix from the Berlin-based powerhouse. Featuring the likes of Green Velvet, Bontan and Ardalan, Knapp’s 60-minute set is the perfect testing ground for his latest signature singles—like the peak-time player “Bumpin’,” the party builder “Without Purpose,” and the deeper title cut, “Find Me,” featuring singer and lifelong friend Baby Luck (aka Brittany Ballard).
