MAKJ – ‘Green Light’

“I’ve had a past life racing cars, and this song is the theme song to my racing heritage. There’s that first listen when it sounds like a club song, but after the second listen, you want to drive in your car at 2 a.m. hitting all green lights. The track is being used by IndyCar in their ‘A Different Breed’ campaign and is an homage to my racing career. The energy and adrenaline I felt when racing in my early teens needed to be made into a record, and that’s how ‘Green Light’ was born.”


Chris Schweizer – ‘Singularity’

Signaling the point of no return for all who so eagerly dive into the trademark sound blasts of Argentinean Trance titan Chris Schweizer, ‘Singularity’ abandons all forms of control in favor of some good ol’ speaker splitting. With gated Trance saws and thumping kick-bass combos taking evolution to the next level, ‘Singularity’ is bound to cause irreversible change to the dance floor as we know it.

Cosmo’s Midnight – ‘Yesteryear’

“Our second album is about reflecting on the past with not only nostalgia but also an element of melancholia ~ all the formative experiences that we absorb growing up both good and bad. It’s an album inspired by personal growth, looking back on these experiences, learning from them and moving forward with optimism. Stylistically we have always looked back to genres our parents introduced to us growing up; disco, funk, psychedelia, alt-pop of the 70s and 80s. In ‘Yesteryear’ ​we have honed in on that, moving away from overly produced sounds to more organic instrumentation, focused on feeling rather than thinking.”

DirtySnatcha x Matt Doe – ‘More Than This (feat. Katie Sky)’

DirtySnatcha is back once again this month with ‘More Than This’, a collaborative track released alongside Canadian dubstep DJ/producer Matt Doe, featuring the vocal talent of U.K.-based singer/songwriter Katie Sky. A subtly filtered vocal cut can be heard, slowly seeping its way into the sonic space. Katie Sky’s effortlessly flowing singing voice eventually takes front and center alongside a driving beat and warbly, distorted soundscapes. The stark juxtaposition is expertly crafted here, drawing an audibly sharp contrast between the relentlessly harsh dubstep elements and Sky’s richly-sang lyrics. The oscillating basslines, propelling beat, and infectious melody are all quintessential hallmarks of what’s sure to be another prime addition to Excision’s brand new imprint.

pluko – ‘redux (w/ Chopsoe)’

Madame Ghandi – ‘Young Indian Reimagined’

“As a producer, I wanted to hold a remix competition to see where else we could take the song, and to connect with new collaborators digitally during this time of quarantine.  I’m hype for you all to experience ‘Young Indian Reimagined’ and travel around the world with me as we experience the track through multiple genres.”
