DJ Lion – Mightery (Harthouse)
If it comes to an unique sound signature, then you can definitely tell without reading but listening to this massive 3 tracker, it’s a DJ Lion style. Stomping beats, wobbling basslines, catchy lead sounds. Yes! This is what makes a club track so catchy and markable. Mightery, Minimum Maximum and 1234554321 are tracks which will join a lot of dj cases during this hot summer and we are very happy to welcome again our new family member back on Harthouse. Welcome DJ Lion.
Theydream – Rocket Man (Fckng Serious)
The two brothers from beaituful Switzerland have formed an unbreakable bond based on both brother’s love of electronic music which they emphasize with their new “Rocket Man” EP yet again. With the title giving A-side track ”Rocket Man” the guys stay true to their name by inviting you, into their world of deep, melancholic and gloomy sound spheres which absorb you completely and leave you behind stunned and thrilled. The B-Side “Pi Persei” connects seamlessly and keeps your journey running through the next level of zero gravity and hypnosis. Integrated into a perfectly aligned beat structure, all three tracks are bursting with self-confidence and sophistication, certainly nothing you would be taking for granted when being confronted with these two humble and withdrawn young gentlemen. Theydream suceed in surprising us, also with their third track “Inertia”: an elaborate and gloriously, puristic piece of music which rounds of this impressive 3-track EP. Well-deserved.
Max Essa – Han Zon Roc EP (Hell Yeah)
A year after his debut outing on the label, Max Essa makes a welcome return to Hell Yeah with the Han Zon Roc EP, which is another of his impossibly laidback offerings. Essa is of course the long time UK talent who has become a part of the Balearic mafia thanks to releases on labels like Aficionado, Music for Dreams, and his own Jansen Jardin. This is the second coming together of artist and label and is another timeless excursion far out to sea.
In 1992, under the pseudonym JayDee he released the hit “Plastic Dreams“, which reached number-one on the US Billboard Hot Dance Music/Club Play chart. The song, an instrumental, featured a prominent Hammond organ-style synthesizer melody, played in a jazzy, improvised manner. “Plastic Dreams” continues to be remixed and re-released today, mostly on unsolicited white labels. The track made the UK Singles Chart on two occasions; firstly in September 1997 when it reached number 18, and again in January 2004, when it reached number 35. He now releases a great down-tempo track.
Ahead of the release of his sophomore album, Sea Monster, Russian DJ and producer Kito Jempere is back with a new single from it. That single is Ampa and it comes with killer remixes from Black Spuma (Lauer and Mammarella) and Miskotom. Black Spuma remix is a hit for Gerd Janson right now…!

Noticed a seductive, beguiling fragrance in the air? That’s Weathertunes’s new album release. A “parfum” which conquers your senses, and spreads an instant well-being feeling for sure. Tempting lounge grooves, spiced with heartwarming positivity, flood the room with sunlight. The Lemongrassmusic brothers Roland and Daniel Voss wrote and performed everything on the album. No guest appearances this time, which impressively underlines the qualities of the project. Their passion for the French lifestyle and culture had a formative influence on the album’s spirit. With sweet melancholy, songs like “Dimanche Matin” or “Anis Nous Explique” tell about the irresistible scent of the Cote d`Azur. The selected technical and compositional pathway is set with class and in regard to the songs mood, turning “Parfum” into a lovely companion along life’s way. A feel-good album in its best sense. While listening, even the sun seems to shine a little brighter.
