Digitaria: 'Shine (Morgan Geist Remix)'
Sharing the same hometown (and even some friends) as me, Brazilian duo Digitaria is one of the many talented acts on the prolific label Hot Creations. During my late teens and early twenties, I had the chance to see Daniel Albinati and Daniela Caldellas perform live as Digitaria several times in our hometown, Belo Horizonte. They have recently picked up momentum outside of Brazil with the release of tracks like 'Crazy Life,' 'Masochist,' and the brand new 'Shine.' The single includes a remix by legendary NYC producer Morgan Geist, formerly of Metro Area, and is quite lovely. As Digitaria begins to team up with big names, I'm excited to see what comes next for the duo.
Close feat. Scuba & Charlene Soraia: 'Beam Me Up'
I've recently came across a label named Aus and quickly became obsessed with their catalogue of releases. British producer Will Saul, the talented (and handsome) man behind the company, is soon unveiling an album under his newest moniker, Close, appropriately named Getting Closer. With a due date set in June, Close has already shared the first single, 'Beam Me Up,' a collaboration with producer Scuba which features vocals by Charlene Soraia. This is a strong track which combines Soraia's angelic voice with a minimal, yet throbbing take on introspective deep house. The single will also include remixes by George FitzGerald (who has recently re-worked Jessie Ware's 'No To Love') and NYC's Hercules And Love Affair.
