Keeping things Irish today, we’ve got a crackin’ new tune from Brian McNamara, better known to many as Breen. We’ve long touted him as one of our finest up and coming underground talents and latest release ‘Lilt’ certainly supports the claim. The track is ultra-groovy with entrancing percussion and dark atmospheric touches. Ibizan Tech with a Berlin influence. It gets its release today [July 28th] on UK label Something Different Again.
That’s not all, however, Breen has also thrown together a brand new mix featuring new music from himself along with that of Evan Jones, Conor Hanson & Rau Ocelot. Over an hour thirty of top quality Deep and Tech. There’s a free download in there too. Enjoy!
A rather refined little number Sansula My Love dropped in our promo box this morning courtesy of Irishman Gavin Francis. Having cultivated a fine reputation on his home turf in Dublin, the budding producer has now made he leap to Germany where he will be a permanent resident of the dance hotbed that is Berlin. The track itself is a delicate tech groover incorporating some well placed organic sounds to give it a uniqueness often lacking in today’s productions. Add in some well placed percussion and you have the recipe for an effective dancefloor tool.
With a renewed focus on production (this seems like the first of many tracks on its way) as well as some inspirational surroundings, you can be sure this won’t be the last you hear of the young producer this year.
Worth keeping an eye on over the next few months.
P.S He’s upcoming in our brand new Podcast series!
One of our personal favourites at WWD – the Ibizan resident Eagles & Butterflies has grabbed our attention this week with the news that he will be the new host of the popular Data Transmission show which airs weekly on Pioneer DJ radio. Having enjoyed a very successful year with some big releases on the likes of Bedrock as well as an incredibly well received debut album it seems the dedicated producer is on something of a hot streak and his new role as a radio host gives him the perfect platform to spread his eclectic music.
As we mentioned, Mr Butterflies has been sweeping all before him in recent months with his album The Butterfly Effect receiving rave reviews and the remix package featuring the likes of Dinky, Fur Coat and Slow Hearts making quite an imprint on Beatport. With the new show he now has a chance to show off some of his own diverse productions as well as those of his contemporaries. Plenty of guest mixes and interviews are also undoubtedly on the way (last week’s debut featured Exploited’s Claptone) which will give the show all round appeal.
Undoubtedly something to look forward to each and every week this summer! The show will air every Friday 5pm GMT on Pioneer DJ Radio.
For those of you looking to get a taste of what Eagles & Butterflies is all about you can grab his new album for free here as an exclusive download:
