Glasgow boys Barrientos & Illyus have been on a fine run of form lately. Their recent mix of Kokri’s ‘Retrospect’ went down a treat at WWD HQ. With all the commotion surrounding the pair, we felt a catch up was in order. We talked studio, Love & Other and new music. It’s all below, enjoy!
Italian trio Solaire (Serj Muller, Filippo Diamantini & William Vincenzi) are making a serious play with their latest release. ‘Autoritratto’, forthcoming on new Mexican imprint Cohesive, is a top level blend of melodic deep and tech. Sensational atmosphere and feeling perforate the tracks as they groove off into the distance. Hats off to Mexa owner Alex Rubio for the find, he heads up Cohesive and if their second release is anything to go by, the label is certainly set for a big 2015.
The EP signifies a huge step up from Solaire, who previously featured on Supernova’s Lapsus Music with tidy cut entitled ‘The Passenger’. With the spotlight now firmly on the talented trio, we’re expecting big things to come.
Release Date : December 1st.

This is the new album from Steffi and is set to be released on November 24th through Ostgut Ton. It’s been three long years since her last album ‘Your & Mine’ was released and it’s quite a different offering.
“I wanted to start working on my new album without any personal or external expectations, and I was seeking an emancipated, unshackled approach in the album’s construction,” Steffi said about the album. “After almost 20 years I got the feeling that I’ve come full circle, so I wanted to make an album that I, as a DJ, would like to carry in my record bag.”
She’s set to play at The Twisted Pepper on December 27th, courtesy of Subject. You can check out all the event information here.
Dublin welcomes Bronx boys the Martinez Brothers this Friday night! The pair, who are one of Ibiza’s biggest attractions in the summer months as residents at DC10′s Circoloco Party, sold out Pygmalion last year for the Abstract Crew in what is still publicised as an incredible occasion. Thus, everyone here at HQ is very excited for their return. The boys have cranked it up big time in the last year, putting out a fine collection of House, Tech & even hip hop in recent months. They’ve seen their stock skyrocket over the space of three years, since their first release on Dennis Ferrer’s Objektivity imprint. They now sit comfortably among the big fish of House & Techno. This is not a show you want to miss!
As always, we won’t leave you hanging! We’ve got a double pass to give away. head over to our Facebook to get involved!
