Manhooker: 'Pushin' & Shovin''
Berliners by choice, Tomasz “Guiddo” Switala and Sebastian “Mavin” Magassouba are Manhooker, a duo that very quickly have become an obsession of mine despite only releasing a couple of singles. Following their two hits 'Wheels in Motion' and 'Cloud 9,' released earlier this year, Manhooker keeps the great momentum up with 'Pushin' & Shovin'.' The new track is a delicious combination of acid house and jazzy elements, alongside the extremely sexy vocals by Mavin. The EP is available on Bandcamp.
Bristol-based label Futureboogie has provided us with instant classics like The White Lamp's 'It's You,' Terrence Pearce's 'Halcyon' and James Welsh's 'Craven.' Their latest release is a 4-track EP by Lukas, the man behind the infamous parties Alfresco Disco, which is also a record label. 'Narwhals,' the second cut on the record, is an infectiously uplifting track where bongos and a piano riff come together and leave you with no option but to dance.
Miguel Migs: 'Moving Sound (Deluxe Salted Dub)'
Super-producer Miguel Migs requires no introduction. This San Francisco deep house staple has been churning out high quality music for over 20 years now, with no signs of stopping anytime soon. This week, Miguel Migs and his Salted Music label shared their latest effort, 'Moving Sound.' The EP comes packed with three dub versions of the track and my pick is the 'Deluxe Salted Dub.' As one would expect from a Migs' release, there are jazzy organs, beautiful soulful vocals and move-inducing bass lines.
