French DJ and producer Mercer ​has remixed ​Bob Sinclar​’s 2000 classic ​‘I Feel For You’​. The remix comes on the 20th anniversary of the iconic original track. He delivers a deeper, more bass-driven take while losing none of the disco-house magic that made ‘I Feel For You’ ​so infectious. 

Rocket Pengwin – ‘Unique’

kLL sMTH – ‘Decoy’

Colorado’s kLL sMTH is a low-end architect who has been constructing killer bass tunes for almost a decade now. He has been really honing in on the half-time vibe in recent times, which he repped to the max via his label debut on Bassrush Records last year with his single ‘Hype Chug’. Now, he is following up that release with a more traditional drum and bass tear-out this week with a proper D&B workout by the name of ‘Decoy’. 

Chee – ‘Vultures’

“I’m pleased to announce the release of my most anticipated single ‘Vultures’. This song means the world to me, it’s a body of work I‘ve made that blends the world of dance music that people love and experimental energy that resonates with me emotionally. Two worlds that collide that that fits like a puzzle. I hope you guys enjoy it, a journey, a stomper and a mind-bender.”
