I wish I could have been at UMF to see this. RCP hero Style of Eye showed threw down a superb set, with a wild track list featuring productions by Dillon Francis, Diplo & GTA, and Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike. Even Missy Elliott‘s 2002 anthem ‘Work It‘ made its way into his routine. This was SoE’s debut UMF set, and he meant business. At the 1:46 mark, the set plummets into the depths rave hell, probably bursting a couple dozen skulls in and around the Miami crowd. Managing to cater to the American mainstream with a few festival staples while still showcasing his more esoteric house influences, Eklöw took the crowd in different directions every couple minutes, letting loose with some rapid fire transitions. I can’t wait until I get to see this guy live again. Listen up for his and Tom Staar‘s new track ‘After Dark‘ and his remix of Zedd‘s ‘Clarity’. He also played fellow Swede DJ Carli‘s new track, ‘Look Up‘, which is out now on A-Trak‘s Fool’s Gold Records, and definitely worth a listen.

Resident beatmeister Decemberkid is back doing big things under the guise of his recently acquired Amor Armor moniker, bringing you Radio Control freaks everything chill this side of the decks. June heralds this bad boy, a 125 BPM cruise through all of that sexy, sexy funky house and garage; killer-chiller tunes. Think: drinks on a Mediterranean beach, girls in all white. Yes, even when he drops Tyga. That, my friends, is the power of Amor Armor. Mix and tracklist after the jump.
Christmas just doesn’t ever end while Decemberkid‘s still around. He’s back with a new mix showcasing some huge electro house and moombahton tracks, so be prepared for the absolute facemelt nonsense that’s about to ensue. Tracklist and downloads after the jump.
Decemberkid has just released a mix that sees a return to his wobbly beginnings. We can hear a lot of that minimal, subby sound that may be leaking over from his previous mix, Tourniquet, that covered all that technical, mellow music from the U.K. and Europe. This is one of those mixes that you could listen to during any activity – including watersports and archery. We’re as proud as ever with Decemberkid as he explores new sounds and techniques, and this mix is a testament to the talent that’s brewing south of the Johor Bahru Strait.
Lion City represent.
