Dance floors are a vital testing ground for DJs to debut unreleased tracks, see what works and make tweaks back in the studio. This invaluable real-time research has been helping mixmasters refine productions and remixes since the days of reel-to-reel machines.
Before the COVID-19 pandemic shut clubs and festivals in March 2020, U.K.-based DJ/producer Luke Jones (a.k.a Biscits) was able to road test the pair of brawny house tracks that comprise his upcoming Jungle Sounds EP out April 30 on Sola Records. It’s evident when you listen to the title track’s finely tuned big-room vibes and swinging beat of the tough-as-nails rager “Drum.”
Below Jones shares five tracks he can’t wait to drop once lockdown ends.
1. Martin Ikin & Biscits ft. Anelisa Lamola – Ready 2 Dance
This is my recent collaboration with Martin Ikin and Anelisa Lamola. I was so happy to be a part of this project, and I’ve received so much love on this one!
2. Fourword – Snake Charmer
Absolutely loving this one on Black Books, and I’m still wondering who is Fourword???
3. John Summit – Make Me Feel
John Summit is smashing it recently. This one is such a great tech-house crossover tune.
4. Maur, Roobinz – Can’t Get Enough feat. Faber
Every track I’ve heard from Maur has been sick. This latest one is no exception. Also, Faber on vocals is a win!
5. Franky Wah feat. Lowes – Not In Love
Franky Wah smashed this tune; it’s really got me excited for festivals to come back!
