The 7 Best Tech House Tracks On Beatport You May Have Missed
Iglesias & Proudly People – Do You Wanna Dance (Extended Mix) [Kaluki Musik]
With the Set Me Free EP, UK-based label Kaluki Musik welcomes back DJ- producer Iglesias. For the record’s b-side, the artist teams up with Italian duo Proudly People for “Do You Wanna Dance” — a question we will have to answer with a resounding YES. The talented trio brings us playful basslines, energetic drum grooves, intricate percussion, hip-swinging claps, and expertly manipulated vocal samples throughout the track. It’s a true-to-form dance floor jumper for all to enjoy.
Late Replies – Black Tea (Original Mix) [Sola Nauts]
If you haven’t heard anything yet from Solardo’s new label, Sola Nauts, Late Replies fresh Djembe EP is the perfect way to get introduced to this firey and fresh imprint. “Black Tea” is a bouncy tune that keeps rolling and rolling along with a well-produced acid synth and soaring vocals that round up this dance floor heater and will set the right tone for any set.
Italobros – La Via En Rose (Original Mix) [Knee Deep In Sound]
Hot Since 82’s imprint KDIS is known for his high-quality releases, and never fails to surprise with its wide variety of sound directions. The Spacey EP, produced by the Italian duo Italobros, is full of unexpected twists and turns. Their track “La Via En Rose” makes you feel so light that it would probably lift you into the sky if listened to on a large enough sound system. A track open-air tune for sunrise, sunset, or even to close your DJ set. Very melodic, harmonic, and rhythmic, this track is missing NOTHING.
Benjamin Barth – Just Rock (Original Mix) [Flashmob Records]
French talent Benjamin Barth closes the La Riviera 2020 VA compilation from UK-based label Flashmob Records with a proper uplifting tech house song. The composition’s piano chords will put you in a thoroughly positive mood and instantaneously transport you to the wonderful island of Ibiza. We all know these moments when the crowd becomes one and simply appreciates the joy of the moment. Create these with “Just Rock”, one of my favorites this summer.
KC Wray – Tears Off (Original Mix) [Purveyor Underground]
Next up, we have Berlin and Chicago native KC Wray. The DJ/producer has been leaving an impeccable mark on the underground electronic music scene lately. “Tears Off”, the B-Side of his Scribble EP on Demuir’s Purveyor Underground imprint, feels very organic with its beats and swing. This track is a perfect maintainer for any setting and is bound to make you move.
22 Weeks – Trying To (Original Mix) [Monoside]
We are going off the grid a bit with “Trying To”, the closing track of 22 Weeks Like You Do EP — released this month via the Mood Funk Records sub-label, Monoside. This track is the perfect choice for curating your deep mood while still rock your peak time set. A minimalistic tune with lots of impact, the playful bassline, rolling sub-bass, clear mixed hi-hats highlighting, and emotional vocals will guide you into the sinking dance floor aura that you’re looking for.
