Y’all should know Miguel by now. Whom you might not know (but also should…) is this crazy norwegian producer named Cashmere Cat. He recently dropped a dope EP on Pelican Fly named Mirror Maru and a couple of high profile remixes like Lana del Rey’s “National Anthem”. He’s one of the hottest up and coming producers in the scene and your can grab his latest remix of the boy wonder of rnb Miguel for “Do You…” for free here.

Meet Sweater Beats, one of the freshest producers coming out of New York city. Got to know his music through his release on Bondax’s JustUs record label back in December. He has his own approach to classic R&B and sexy Hip Hop jams with an electronic twist. This is exactly the kind of music that’s bringing the organic roots back to a spotlight filled with an empty EDM fad. Like any good son of the internet era he has shitloads of freebies online make sure you grab them and cope with his releases as well as show some support on his facebook page and so on.

Who would have said that 2012’s deep house prodigy would be a sexy gal from the UK. Maya Jane Coles has a brand new EP out on her own imprint I/AM/ME featuring 4 originals with her signature sexy house style. What amuses me the most about her music is the way she blends poppy melodies with laid back vocals and a soft but yet fulfilling beat. It really is heart warming listening to this kind of tracks at the club…

I’d like to start this post by saying that this compilation might be milestone in Portuguese electronic music. I grew up to electronic music admiring all the work involving the FREIMA collective as it was to me as it is today a seal of pure quality. Having this said I see with a great amount of respect one’s will to push their national culture forward as further as they can while still regarding high standards of excellence in their work without falling into the category of doing something like this just for the sake of it. Weather Forecast is Freima’s first release as a label (the first of many I hope) and it features eleven originals from up and coming portuguese producers. Battling between genres of all sorts this release travels around the country and all its influences being them detroit’s techno, chicago’s house, london’s dubstep, african beat and whatnot. Make sure you cope with it and keep an eye on Freima for a display of Portugal’s finest.

Even though they’ve only been putting out releases for less than two years Maribou State are highly regarded as one of the most promising duos on this new wave of “future bass”, UK bass, garage (whatever…) producers. Their EP “Scarlett Groove” recently came out on Southern Fried Records featuring four awesome originals. Their summery scented music is like a warm breeze in this cold winter. I love to hear somewhat of an african influence in the way they put together their beats but without making it sound like a tribal thing. It really makes my mind travel along the whole EP which is one of the things good electronic music is supposed to do (yeap kids it’s not only about the fist pump or the “drop”). Listen to it and grab yourselves a copy.

Brenmar has that unique style of his that makes him one of the producers that you just can’t miss of the past decade. He manages to include that singular touch in absolutely everything he touches bringing an upgraded ghetto groove to every production and wash it in smooth coolness. He’s the modern RnB wiz of electronic music and he just has a feeling drowned into it you just can’t ignore. His latest EP came out on Sinden’s Grizzly Records this past February so make sure you cope with it if you haven’t already. Also download the shitload of freebies he has been putting out.

I’m getting seriously in love with the shizzle this british guy has been putting out. He runs under the name Polkadot and hails from Wolverhampton. He has been uploading some sick tunes to his soundcloud page and has an EP coming out on MadTech Records which has recently dropped 3 dope EPs by Voyeur, Krystal Klear and Ill Blu. He has that special touch that makes him perfectly blend phat house beats with mean UK bass and a garage groove. It has an UK flavour all around it that makes it all sounds delicious. Make sure you grab the free EP he dropped a while ago and keep an eye on him in the near future.

Cyril Hahn got in my radar in the beginning of 2012 with some of the dopest mash-ups I’ve heard. Now he’s invading the air-waves with a couple of remixes of radio hits that really are crowd pleaser. I thought it would be nice to put them all together to make it easy for you to grab them all before they’re gone (thank you brand new soundcloud version). His a propper mellow style of his own that he manages to input into everything he touches. Trully someone to watch in the future.

It seems like every time João changes his alias he gains supa dupa powa and steps up to game with better and wicker mambo. Running under Branko the member of Buraka Som Sistema  formerly known as J-Wow has just released a freebie that will literally make your pants drop. It’s “Ghetto Whitney” bitch.

Recently found out about these two producers from Montreal, Canada, named Hesk and Paveun. They make some fine chilling tunes heavily influenced by Chicago’s footwork/juke and hip hop.

If you’re into house music one of the labels to definitely have in mind is Pets Recordings. This time what brings their name to the table is the amazing is the dope remix Trikk did for them for the track “Follow the Step” by Rachel Row. It’s an UK house take in what has become Trikk’s signature blend of garage and house with a phat beat and a melodie that brings you back in time. The release also comes with two good versions of the track by KiNK and the original itself. It’s due to come out on vinyl on the 3rd of December and it will sure fit my santa’s list.
